Overview

Packwood Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 + Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Find The RAINIER VIEW LODGE nestled amongst the trees in Packwood, WA. Historic Packwood is situated between Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, surrounded by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and at the very center of Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway (Hwy 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country.' It is 7 miles from the southeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and 19 miles from White Pass Ski Area.

RAINIER VIEW LODGE has 2,184 sq. ft. of luxury (built in 2009) w/custom, live-edge finish and decor: 'book-matched' cabinetry w/cedar and 'spalted' maple highlights, hardwood & tile floors, granite counters, feature lighting and a custom-made, 9 ft., live-edge table w/matching benches and 2 - 8 foot leather couches, which promise comfort and ease as you absorb the view of Mt. Rainier from the massive cathedral windows, or drift into dreamland quickly on comfy mattresses with plump pillows and cozy down comforters.

Immediately outside are decks front and back, for enjoying fresh alpine air. Up Begonia Lane and to the left, Hall Creek falls and creek tempt a visit, along with neighborhood elk.

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

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

Marilly Morton purchased this lodge in 2008

Why Marilly Morton chose Mount Rainier

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.

What makes this lodge unique

I enjoy being outside in the hot tub under a star studded sky with wood smoke on the wind from the fire pit while elk pass by, what a combination! Throwing snowballs from the hot tub in the midst of winter made for a great memory and photo shoot. Indoors offers every comfort from home and even more with a far infrared sauna to soothe tired muscles. I never tire of watching the many faces of Mt. Rainier or the elk and birds at the Lodge. It's a great place for dreaming!

Guestbook comments from the owner

HI there,

Just wanted to say a BIG THANKS for a wonderful weekend with our entire family!! The place was in tip-top condition and more than we were expecting. The place was perfect for us with sleeping, eating (love the BIG table), relaxing...the view and weather couldn't have been better!!

We went on day hikes in the area, found our church services in Morton for Sunday (we are Mormon) and appreciated your generous hospitality to open such a lovely home for us to enjoy together.

We loved the campfires at night and visiting around them. It was nice to have all 6 of our children gathered around the campfire and enjoy conversations and look into all their faces...truly a beautiful sight!!

Anyway, I don't know if you get to hear from your renters, but we absolutely LOVED our time there and say THANKS for having us!!

Spotless property . Had everything we needed. Would be great for a large group. Saw elk crossing property. Enjoyed hot tub. Only negative was that washing machine was moldy on door gasket.

Excellent home. Clean, great views and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We initially booked the home because of the terrific Rainier view--and that was as advertised. But beyond that the house was terrific. Clean, well-stocked, and equipped with toys (hot tub, sauna) for a mountain visit. Paradise is about 1.5 hours away, as is Windy Ridge for Mt St Helens--but the drives are fine and part of the adventure.

We had internet connectivity problems, which the owners tried to address, but the problems were more related to the servers than to anything that could be controlled in the short run. The owner provided a helpful book of hikes and restaurants in Packwood and nearby.

Strongly recommended.

Great house with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved that the owner is responsive and very organized. The view is exactly as advertised. My husband was overwhelmed when the clouds cleared and we could see the mountain while sitting on the couch. Master bed was very comfortable. Highly recommend.

Great House and Great View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house, view, woods and trails, fire pit, hot tub, and location. The house is modern and was very clean. We saw elk in the fields in Packwood and owls in the woods behind the house. We would stay there again. On a small note, the provided firewood has not been split at all, and some is too large to burn, so bring small and large kindling and maybe a little firewood.

Owner's Response: Dear EW, So glad you found the house modern, very clean and enjoyed the woods, location, local wildlife and hot tub, finding only the lack of fire wood wanting. I’m guessing you don’t have a Smart/iPhone/Droid, because on the HomeAway/VRBO app, we state, “We do not PROMISE firewood, but have been able to provide it most years through property maintenance. Kindling, however, is NOT provided. If you go in the wooded area behind the lodge, you can find plenty of kindling. There is newspaper in the bottom drawer to the right of the refrigerator and matches just to the right of the slider in a black cast-iron holder, or a lighter in the top drawer to the right of the refrigerator.” I’m sorry our maintenance didn’t allow for split firewood this year. Fortunately, there are a number of places in town where firewood can be purchased.

Rainier View Lodge is 7 miles from Mt. Rainier National Park, and an easy day trip to Mt. St. Helens, surround by William O Douglas, Goat Rocks and Tatoosh Wilderness Areas, where you can disappear all day with an endless banquet of choices. White Pass Scenic Byway (Highway 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country', is a veritable smorgasbord of brown recreation signs where you can satisfy your activity appetite every season of the year with fishing, boating, wind surfing, hang-gliding, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain bikes, geocaching, birding and much, much more.

Rainier View Lodge is just .3 of a mile east of downtown Packwood, WA en route to White Pass Ski Area, just 17-18 miles away. So embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wildlife preserve. Elk appear a natural extension of the downtown landscape. Packwood is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass Ski Area has great family skiing (downhill & cross country), snowshoeing and snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings.
