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.
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!
This was our second stay at Hall Creek Cabin this winter. Marilly and Fred are wonderful hosts and have set the cabin up for homelike comfort. Anytime we have had questions they have been immediately available and helpful. From the ease of making reservations through our stays to the security deposit return our experience has been excellent. Many thanks and we look forward to future visits.
Great little cabin near White Pass. Very clean and well appointed with everything needed for a small family. Owner is very clear with expectations, and willing to go above and beyond to make your booking process clear. Received my deposit immediately after checkout. Maintainence and cleaning staff responded immediately to adjust chemicals in hot tub. Beds and couch are just average in terms of comfort, despite our expectations based on previous reviews. Highly recommend this place for budget and cleanliness. Will stay again.
Usually we hate hotel pillows, as they are very bad ergonomically bad for the neck and bac, but these were great. Hubby and I slept great, and loved everything about our stay.
This cabin is clean, comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy yourself. The living room is cozy and comfortable for evening visits complete with "fireplace" and a DVD for movies. The full kitchen has all the supplies you need to prepare your meals, even coffee filters. The beds are VERY comfortable and bedrooms/bathrooms meticulously clean. All this and heaven too! What a great location, being such a short drive to the scenic Mt. Rainer National Park. In addition, it is an easy walk into the little town of Packwood where you will find a fabulous coffee shop and very possibly some elk will be walking by to greet you.
My recent stay at this lovely nostalgic pacific northwest cabin in Packwood was wonderful. The cabin furniture was very comfortable, the décor mirrored the ambiance, mountain and western feel. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay in the cabin was available. We had picturesque scenes of Mt. Rainer and beautiful fall foliage, trails and nearby within walking distance was the little town of Packwood. You couldn't ask for a better retreat to refresh your soul and spirit !!!
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.
