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 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!

Beautiful cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the cabin was in amazing condition, very clean and well organized. The location is really perfect, very close by to the hiking trail head to Packwood Lake, which has to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the state. Its about a 4.6 mile hike with not too much slope, but not too many views until you reach the lake which makes up for the lack of views on the trail. This cabin is a very good bang for your buck, high quality at a good price.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin had everything we needed for our family of four. I love being able to wash clothes while we are away. We were close to the grocery store and a few restaurants in town. Wifi worked fine. Our only issue was that the back bedroom was warm, but a fan was provided. Washington was going through a hot spell and I'm sure they aren't used to needing AC. Location is very convenient to Mt. Rainier; in fact you can see it from the cabin. We never saw any wild animals and we looked constantly. We would definitely stay again.

Great base camp for exploring Mt. Rainier

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cabin for a small family to stay while visiting Mt. Rainier. All the conveviences of home like kitchen and washer/dryer. Loved the rustic window trim and accessibility of the cabin. You can get a partial view of Mt. Rainier from the bedroom windows. Didnt see any elk the week we were there, though.

Convenient, quiet Mt Rainier location

  • 3 of 5

Not attractive from the outside, this cabin is clean and comfortable inside. Located just outside Packwood, it is an easy 7 mile ride into the Park. The cabin is well equipped but lacks a hair dryer and a decent TV station package. The owners require the signing of a multi-page, onerous rental agreement contract.

Owner's Response: Dear TF, Thank you for choosing Beautiful Northwest Lodging for your vacation rental needs and taking the time to write a review. I’m sorry your visit was less than perfect. We don’t provide a hair dryer, which is why it doesn’t show on the listing. I’m sorry you got caught without one. As of your review, I added, “Hair Dryer not included” to the bathroom description in the HomeAway/VRBO HOSPITALITY MANAGER, which provides guests all the information they need…right when they need it! Hospitality Manager has helpful information on equipment, its usage, heat/AC, emergencies, trash, etc. as well as local landmarks and activities – all in one place. You can easily access it on the web or through the HomeAway mobile app. You are correct, we provide only limited basic cable, because the TV is SMART with Netflix/Pandora capabilities, we provide a small collection of DVDs and the local grocery has rentals as well. Contracts . . . I never met one I liked. Comparatively, because I have VRs, I use VRs and find some contracts easier-shorter others harder/longer, they are as diverse as the properties and their owners.

GREAT LITTLE CABIN

  • 4 of 5

This cute little cabin is a great value for the money! It was clean and cozy. We made good use of the hot tub after hiking all over Mt. Ranier area. The owners were quick to respond to our questions and easy to work with. We would definitely rent this property again.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Packwood, and needed a place for a few of us to stay. This home was perfect. It was in a great location, easy to find. It was very clean, and communication with the owner was excellent. We had no issues during our stay, and will choose this home again in the future. It's close to Mt Rainier and lots of good hiking in the summer, and great skiing in the winter.
