Welcome to Moosewood Manor! Enjoy our family-friendly, two-story 2300 sq ft custom crafted cabin in the heart of the Pacific Northwest mountains. Located on a secluded, quiet cul-de-sac in the town of Packwood, the house backs up to the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and looks out on the Tatoosh Mountain Range.

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. Nearby lakes include Rife, Mayfield, Takalack, Packwood, Rimrock and Chambers as well as many more where you can find fishing, boating and hiking.

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!

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.

Charming mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Moosewood Manor. We had plenty of room for two families with small children to gather. The kitchen was warm and open and had everything we needed to gather for family dinners. The high chair was helpful for our youngest family member. We were very close to the Ohanapecosh entrance of Mount Rainier National Park and only an hour away from Paradise. The hot tub was great to relax in after a full day of hiking. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. We very much enjoyed our trip.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

  • 5 of 5

The Moosewood Manor cabin was beautiful and very clean. The cabin has huge windows and a

great porch to enjoy the scenery. We loved making smores on the outdoor fire pit and sitting in

the hot tub. There is a grocery store and gas station just a couple of miles away and the drive to

Mount Rainier National Park was only about 20 minutes. We always stay in log cabins on our trips

and this was one of the best that we have visited.

Gorgeous Cabin Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cabin home with all the amenities you could ask for. It is very well maintained, warm, and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here with our family. The kids want to move in. It's also a perfect location for Mt. Rainier NP, where we spent lots of time. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful, relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

This home is well maintained and well stocked with all the essentials. The house stays so warm with the fireplaces! It feels like a real home, we were a group of two families with kids and the owners had thought of everything. The hot tub is wonderful surrounded by beautiful woods. It was any easy drive to White Pass. I would highly recommend this home and we hope to return this summer!

The perfect getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my husband's 30th birthday and it was better than expected. Cozy, comfortable, well stocked and every detail considered. Communication with the owner was great beforehand as well. She was even thoughtful enough to contact us in advance and provide road closure details. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home with our friends. We cannot wait to come back again!
