About David Swanson

We have owned Fairway Getaway since 2005. My family has been coming to Packwood and enjoying everything it has to offer since I was a young child. I look forward to and am excited to continue to enjoy this area while passing on some of the same joys and new memories of this area to my children! Packwood will always be our second home for years to come! This community is our family's sanctuary retreat to golf, hike, ski, snowshoe, bike, and fish! We often relax in the hot tub at the end of the day while watching the abundance of just one of the many local Elk herds mow (grazing) the golf course nightly. We look forward to hosting your visit to Fairway Getaway!

~ David & Three ~

David Swanson purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit to 'Fairway Getaway' is it's location nestled on hole number 2 on the 9 hole H.V.P. Country Club golf course. Our home is just a 2 minute walk to the H.V.P. club house, pool, playground and driving range.

Great Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5
We came here with our 4-yo daughter and two dogs. The owner was great and easy to work with. The cabin was very clean and came as described on the website. We had plenty of space in the cabin and everything was easy to find. This house has convenient access to the town of Packwood and the National Forest / Mount Rainier. The backyard was fenced in so our dogs were able to roam outside without worry.

We saw deer and elk on the golf course each morning which delighted our daughter and utilized the fire pit each night to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. All in all a great weekend and stay in Packwood!

Golf Golf Golf .... Dreamers

  • 5 of 5
Scott and I had 4 days of relaxation with the kids while golfing, hiking and exploring while at this house. David was so wonderful to work with .... friendly, funny and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed EVERY minute of our mini vacation in Packwood. This house is very clean, open floor plan, roomy and theme decorated so well. I loved how different rooms were decorated so uniquely to incorporate both the wilderness and golfing at the same time. Oh, and the fire fighting themed room was very neet to look through with all of the antique fire fighting equiptment and of course the vibrating bed which brought many laughs to all! The house was so conveinvant to everything we had planned to do which was very nice. Thank you David for providing such a wonderful atomosphere and very clean home for our so needed escape from the city. We will forsure be back.

very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is huge, well equipped and located in a very charmful corner of town. We stayed there for 2 nights after a long flight from the east coast and everyone in our family, from age 1 to 70, were very satisfied with the cabin. We will definitely come back to David's cabin !

Golfing with Elk, Hiking in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay in this Packwood Cabin during a week in mid August. Nine holes of morning golf followed by fresh picked Huckleberry pancakes, then off to Mt Rainier Nat'l Park for a full day of hiking, back by dusk to watch the local Elk herds rework the fairways and greens as we fit in a few more holes of golf. Cabin was quaint and well stocked for meal preparation, but it is the location that makes it the ideal launch site to the entrance arches of Mt Rainier. Coming in from the lesser used entrance from Packwood avoids the crowds and locates one centrally to all the best hiking trails. The added inexpensive golf (and pool for the kids) would make this an ideal rental for all active types, recreational golfers, families with energetic kids and those that enjoy all Mt Rainier offers.
While the cabin is not new, it is comfortable and well furnished, and we found ourselves surrounded by empty homes, many of which are for sale, giving us a peaceful neighbor-less stay. Amenities such as the well stocked fire pit and BBQ make for a great "camp like" experience, and a good hot shower remind one why cabins are more comfortable than tents.
Morning golfers may disturb the late risers as those balls can actually hit the house, followed by ball seekers in yard hunting same and yelling results across the fairway but we found it part of the charm of golf course living, and added evening ball hunts to the daily agenda. Though the hot tub was out of commission, I'm sure that would add to the advantages of this property. (The owner gave us a discount due to the known hot tub issue).
I would rent here again, the location is fabulous, the cabin and décor adorable, the facilities are clean and well stocked and the Elk are a special treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and your complete understanding with the hot tub situation! With the cabin, just weeks prior to your arrival being back up and renting we had run into a few glitches along the way which have sense been all resolved. I was very thankful for your suggestions and input which have all been incorporated into the cabin. I am very glad you had a wonderful experiance at the cabin in spite of the hot tub being down. We are looking forward to you staying with us here again!
