Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time at Hall Creek Cabin! Very sweet place to stay, cozy and warm! We would love to come back soon, or even next year to rent the bigger house (Rainier View Lodge) with a few more friends! I have never seen sooooo much snow in a long time! We were in Packwood last yr. and never saw White Pass like that! Maybe next time we will get more snowboarding in :) Thanks again for the well needed trip!

Fred, as a teacher, is a life time learner. His passion is reading and sports. Marilly has a passion for family, birds, photography and traveling, visiting Nicaragua, The Netherlands, Germany & Italy. We both visited Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Switzerland, Vancouver Island & Victoria BC, and Fred managed a sailing trip to Aruba with our oldest son.

To keep the international flavor in our home, we hosted exchange students including: two German, two Japanese, two Koreans, and one Colombian.

Besides our four vacation rentals, we own 2 Subway stores (in Portland, OR).

Marilly Morton purchased this cabin in 2006

We love the mountains, and Packwood is very like Switzerland, only the mountains are smaller and farther apart. It is in the center of Gifford Pinchot Nat'l Forest, 7 miles from the southern entrance to Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park, and surround by Tatoosh, William O Douglass, and Goat Rocks Wilderness areas. There is a constant flow of wildlife including: elk, coyotes, raccoon, fox, black bear, bald eagles, beaver and more, and year round recreational activities.

We spent every weekend for almost a year in Hall Creek Cabin while we built the Rainier View Lodge. We really made it our home away from home. I enjoyed the hot tub under a star studded sky, the song of Hall Creek, wood smoke on the wind and the plethora of passing elk . . . what a combination! It's a great place to dream and build!

NICE CABIN

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for a couple of days. The cabin was clean and easy to find. There is a lot to do nearby, and has a beautiful environment. Even saw the neighbour " Elk".
Loved relaxing in the hot tube. Wished we could have stayed longer.........

Owner's Response: Dear DG,
We are so glad you had a relaxing weekend, and found Hall Creek Cabin clean. It was our pleasure to host you. My housekeeper, who lives next door, said your family was an absolute delight.
We hope you can visit again soon. It is fun to see you've visited our Beautiful Northwest Lodging Facebook page for activities on the property as well as around the area.
I would love you to send photos of your children taken with our "neighborhood bear". I would post them on the Facebook page, minus your children's names, for the sake of their privacy.

"WE WASH THE BAR SOAP BETWEEN GUESTS"

"We wash the bar soap between guests"
  • 2 of 5
The title says it all... We arrived to find a not so clean bathroom with products left from the last guest, sticky tile floor, and grimy bathtub. When we brought it to the owner's attention, we received about 4 paragraphs on how the cabin Was Clean and how they wash the bar soap between guests as to help keep costs low and conserve. Who wants to use someone else's bar soap? We further found it funny that the owners were so defensive on the cleanliness... Simply apologize that standards weren't met and how can they fix it... That would have been a difference between a 2 star and a 4 star as this property certainly isn't a 5 star experience.

Last note: if the cabin was so clean... how did we find the (assuming) last guests wallet?

The owner refunded the deposit and cleaning fee in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Dear S,

Thank you for your review. Though painful to receive, I will use it to improve our service for future guests. It is always our intention to provide a 5 star experience, and I’m sorry we failed for your visit. May I offer this simple more public apology?

Our previous guest was reunited with his wallet. He appreciates your honesty as there was cash inside.

GREAT VISIT

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I stayed here for a week honeymooning. We wanted to rest, and enjoy privacy & a peaceful & beautiful setting. We found it here! We were able to easily walk to Packwood for groceries & a stretch of the legs & driving nearby was beautiful & pleasant. We enjoyed the neighborhood elk & the creek so close as well as the stunning Mt. Rainier views we could glimpse from a window or drink in right outside the door! The cabin was clean & comfortable, with a very well appointed kitchen. Interactions with the owner were pleasant & we were completely informed of everything we needed to know & accommodated with our dates of stay, and even given a weather report the day we drove out to the cabin since there had been a new snowfall. Access to the cabin was easy from the highway, but there was no road noise. We had no cell service. Perfect.

Owner's Response: Dear K & M, We were so happy you chose Hall Creek Cabin for your honeymoon, even happier that you found it restful, peaceful and comfortable, and private. That is just what a honeymooning couple needs. Too bad you were unable to use your FREE night. Congratulations!

The listing description was perfectly in-line with what we found upon arrival. The cabin was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The owner went above and beyond to assure our stay was perfect. I will recommend this property to all of my friends and family. During our stay we skiied at White Pass ski resort, a short 20 minute drive away and a gem of a ski area.
