Welcome to Moosewood Manor! Enjoy our family-friendly, two-story 2300 sq ft custom crafted cabin in the heart of the Pacific Northwest mountains.

Minimum stay is two nights or three nights over holidays.

This house has all the essentials for a true mountain retreat. The first floor has expansive vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan with gourmet kitchen, living and dining areas. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, a full size pantry, and all the utensils you'll need. Enjoy the beautiful forest and partial mountain views from the floor to ceiling windows in the living room and from the front deck. Relax on our large leather sofa and hand-crafted rocking chairs as you sip a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa in front of the glowing gas fireplace with river rock surround. Watch the stars as you soak in the large hot tub or roast marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit.

Moosewood Manor sleeps up to 10 adults and 2 children. The romantic master bedroom on the second floor includes a hand-crafted king size log bed, gas fireplace and walk-in-closet. The attached master bathroom has a two person soaking tub, shower, and double sinks. Two additional bedrooms, plus a split bathroom, are found on the first floor. Bedroom one has a hand-crafted queen size log bed while bedroom two has a full size Murphy bed plus a kid-approved bunk bed. Two futons in the den in the daylight basement provide additional sleeping space. The daylight basement also features a second TV and DVD player, mudroom, and half-bath. Throughout the house, you'll find many environmentally friendly features including bamboo, cork, and wool floors and water-saving toilets.

Moosewood Manor is part of the Timberline Village recreational community, which provides access to tennis courts, playground, playing fields, a club house and two seasonal swimming pools. The southeast corner to Mt. Rainier National Park is 15 minutes away, and the White Pass Ski Area, with downhill and cross-country skiing, daycare, and ski school, is 25 minutes away.

About The Owner

We're the Schubert family: Tim, Arlene, daughter Alexa, and grandson Brendan. Tim and Arlene recently retired. After 18 years living in Tacoma, WA, they're exploring adventures farther afield--currently Lake Chapala, Mexico!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Mount Rainier

We chose this location because we loved the beauty and hiking of Mount Rainier, the skiing at White Pass, and the easy access from Tacoma and Seattle. We also liked the amenities and great community of Timberline Village, plus the small-town charm of Packwood.

What makes this house unique

We love to hike, ski, and snowshoe. Arlene also recommends the thrift stores of Packwood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Moosewood Manor for our honeymoon and felt like we were at a full-service spa. We lolled in the hot tub under the stars and cooked feasts in the well-stocked kitchen. We also appreciated the sustainable features, like the cork flooring. Deep soaking bathtubs, fireplaces—a perfect mountain retreat!

Happy with my choice of cabin

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as shown and described in the ad. All the instructions were laid out in front of me so i knew exactly what I had to do upon departure. The property manager I worked with was also really helpful, I usually had a response from her within an hour or two. Definitely will look to stay here again.

Great ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Moosewood Manor. Our group was four adults and two toddlers and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is well appointed and the house was very clean.

The wood work through out the house was beautiful. Location was perfect for ski lessons, about 20 minutes from the top of the mountain.

No complaints what-so-ever!

I highly recommend this cabin to other families.

This Cabin was incredible. The family has put so much work into making there home a great place to stay. So much detail and craftsmanship was put into all the custom trim and details. My family had fun in the snow. Two feet when we got there. Another foot while we were there. Definitely will be back. Maybe check it out in the summer for a brand new experience. Thanks again Chad.

Great base for Mt. Rainier and Mount St. Helens

  • 4 of 5

I'm a bit of a tough grader so a 4 star review is one of a satisfied customer in this case. The lodge provided plenty of room for our group of 9 and we left with great memories. We did day trips to the Mts. and used the facilities to prepare breakfasts and evening meals. This is where the property excelled. The stove, fridge, microwave, and washer and dryer were put to good use and provided great utiility. All sizes of pots and pans and every utensil needed were available for use. I greatly appreciated that the pantry and fridge had those condiments, spices, oils, and other essentials that you hate to spend money on for a relatively short stay in stock. This was helpful and a money saver. There is a small grocery in Packwood for incidentals but I recommend you plan your meals and hit a grocery in a metro area to save some cash for your major meal ingredients.

Outside we took advantage of the marvelous hot tub, used the fire pit and the grill. We had some great family times in the hot tub and around the fire. Great places to relax and unwind after busy days of taking in with awe both Rainier and St. Helens. We all also enjoyed an hour or so at a coffee shop in Packwood on Saturday morning.

I'd do this trip over again a hundred times. Just really special for me to have all the family around, comfortable and enjoying the time together that happens too rarely as the kids get older.

There were no major negatives. The driveway was a bit of a challenge to climb but you learn to handle that. The price was at the top end of the offerings but we booked a little late and didn't have a slew of options. Even so, it was a value compared to spending on hotel rooms and not having the conveniences this place offered. I guess the greatest tribute was the praise from the family. We did an Alaskan cruise after our stay and I by the family comments the fun here matched that experienced on the cruise. Many thanks.
