About Marilly Morton

Fred, as a teacher, is a life time learner. His passion is family, 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, Aruba, Vancouver Island & Victoria BC, and Fred managed a sailing trip to Belize 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

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 cabin unique

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!

Conveniently located for visiting Mt Rainier NP.

  • 4 of 5

Four of us spent a weekend in this comfortable little cabin and took day trips into the Paradise area for hiking and exploring Mt Rainier NP. The cabin was well equipped for cooking meals and the beds were comfortable. There were other cabins close by, but the neighborhood was quite and the hot tub felt good after a day of hiking.

What a wonderful little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in Packwood was superb! It was the perfect getaway and the cabin was everything we needed and more. We have two young toddlers, and the house was baby/kid proof with little to no breakables within reach. We appreciated Marilly's kindness and thorough details (her instruction book at the house even gave us a good laugh), and would not hesitate to come back again. The hot tub was the icing on the cake!

Hall Creek Cabin in Packwood, WA (property #314825) August 12-14

  • 3 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time at your cabin. The directions were perfect and we had no trouble finding it. We found the cabin in fine condition, very clean, and well appointed. Everything was as you had indicated and the house rules were spelled out. Especially liked that the kitchen was so well organized and included everything we needed. After two days of hiking, the hot tub was a welcome addition to soothe tired muscles. The only thing that did not meet our needs was the sofa hide-a-bed, which we were required to use. To say that it was uncomfortable would be an understatement. Besides, several of the springs that held the canvas to the frame were missing which caused it to sag to one side and did not give adequate support.

Weather wise it was a perfect weekend and I have never seen Mt. Rainier more beautiful. Marilly, I appreciated our several phone calls that answered any questions I had. Thank you very much.

Owner's Response: Dear FH, Thank you for the privilege of serving your vacation needs. I’m delighted my directions made Hall Creek easy to find, that you found it very clean, well appointed, with the kitchen providing for all your needs and well organized. I’m doubly thrilled that the house rules, which can sometimes set people’s teeth on edge, had the desired affect on you, giving directions for an uncomplicated stay. August is a wonderful month for great weather in the Pacific Northwest, allowing views of Mt. Rainier with its many faces and moods. We never tire of looking at her. I was surprised to hear that several springs on the hide-a-bed were missing. In the driving directions I state, “Upon CHECK-IN, take a close look around. If you find anything broken, dirty or out of the ordinary for a vacation rental, be sure to contact us right away…” I received no such call, text or email to suggest a solution or execute a repair. I made an inquiry with the 2 guests that stayed in HCC before you. The Aug. 5th-10th guests used the hide-a-bed without problem, the guests just before you on Aug. 10th- 12th did not use it, and because of your comment, I contacted my housekeeper because she was cleaning for the guests after you and said the springs were in tact, which leaves me confused over their reappearance and a 3-star rating after such a glowing report. I must leave the conclusion to the readers of this review and say, “I never met a hide-a-bed that I liked.” Children don’t seem to mind sleeping on them, but they aren’t particularly comfortable for adults.

Great cabin in a perfect location for exploring Mt. Rainier NP.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We used it as a base for daily hiking in Mt. Rainier National Park, but there are plenty of other hiking options in the area as well (and Marilly has a binder full of suggestions to help with planning your stay). The hot tub was a great way to end each day of strenuous hiking! We would definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

Wonderful cabin with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay with easy access to Mt. Rainier National Park. This was the perfect place for this. The park entrance was a short drive away! The cabin was perfect. Warm and cozy, and in a great neighborhood which was perfect for an evening stroll. The cabin itself was perfectly stocked with everything you could need for your vacation. we had actually arrived to Packwood an hour earlier than check-in, I called owner to see if it would be possible to check-in early to which she obliged. Not only was she kind and easy to reach when we needed, she was quick to give me helpful and useful advice for the area. I plan to go back Hall Creek Cabin for our next Rainier vacation! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Dear AR, We love it when guest return. When they do, they become a part of of Beautiful Northwest Lodging family. We have hosted many guests yearly, biannually, sometimes every other year. We had one woman who stayed with us, a guy she had been dating in Nashville (who clearly communicated he wanted to marry this gal) contacted me and together we arranged a surprise. Two years later, they were married and returned to stay in the same house. They went out of their way to meet us in person, and we are in touch to this day. I continue to be in contact with a number of our guests through email and Facebook. So . . . . . hope you join the family.
