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!

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!

Wonderful little cabin

It was so beautiful! The house was set up very nicely and the hot tub was a huge plus! There were elk in the front yard in the morning and the town was so adorable! Will definitely be going again!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the property. Some nice upgrades since our last visit, new carpet, furniture, and television. The cabin was super clean upon arrival and well kept. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the layout of the cabin is very efficient. The location is convenient to town and it is located in a very quiet neighborhood with the nice sound of Halls Creek in the distance. The internet was a bit weak but for basic use was adequate.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This house was comfortable and a convenient 20 minute drive from the White Pass area where we were skiing. The place was as described, and included an extra bed (the couch is a pull out bed) not mentioned in the listing (but mentioned in the reply I got from the owner.) It was nice for each of us to have our own room, and have the living and kitchen's eating nook to spread out and each have some space. Only complaint is that the wifi was too unreliable when we tried to watch movies using Netflix on the tv, so we had to give up, but thankfully a good selection of high quality movies was available to watch on the DVD. The wifi was fine for our smart phones, and ok for iPad, but there would be regular downtime for it too.

Owner's Response: Dear A, Thank you for your Hall Creek Cabin review. As I say in most of my communications, it was our pleasure serving you, I hope you give us another opportunity in the future. I was surprised that you said, “… and included an extra bed (the couch is a pull out bed) not mentioned in the listing (but mentioned in the reply I got from the owner).” I re-visited the site (hadn’t for a while) and found 3 references to the hide-a-bed, one of which I am copying and pasting here: Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, Beds for 4-6 • Bedroom 1: 1 queen • Bedroom 2: 1 queen • Convertible bed(s): 1 sleep sofa /futon • queen hide-a-bed (italics on the site, but didn't transfer in the c & p) • Queen size Beds (2) So for potential guests reading this review, hide-a-bed is to pull out bed what davenport or sofa is to couch, dungarees are to jeans and pocketbook is to purse (my husband is from the east coast, so we had to navigate definitions early in our marriage, and that doesn't even count pronunciation of identical words). You are absolutely correct regarding the WIFI. Hall Creek Cabin has the highest WIFI speed presently available in the area (15 megabytes). Being a very small town, satellite/cable TV & phone services are poor w/no additional site options available. We are presently investigating alternative options, that is why we provide a small assortment of DVDs in the cabin. On the occasion when the WIFI fails, you could travel the 0.05 mi. to the Packwood HOTSPOT at the Timberland Public Library and see if theirs is working, and Blanton's full-service grocery store has DVDs for rent.

Clean, quiet, comfortable. Feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth visit to Beautiful Northwest Lodging. As always the cabin was clean, and quiet, and comfortable. Normally (for me) lodging is just a place to rest my head between days of adventure. This is not the case with Beautiful Northwest Lodging. The cabin is a big part of the adventure.

Thank you Fred and Marilly! I'll be back.

Quiet getaway in the Packwood area

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a cozy space which I found to be impeccably clean and inviting. The furniture is comfortable and functional and the kitchen is well-supplied with everything you need if you are cooking in. The beds were comfortable and there's a washer dryer as well. The hot tub was a nice amenity at the end of a long day. Communication with the owners was good and they were always prompt in getting back to me. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone.

Hall Creek Cabin is 7 miles from Mt. Rainier National Park, and an easy day trip to Mt. St. Helens, surround by William O Douglas, Goat Rocks and Tatoosh Wilderness Areas, where you can disappear all day with an endless banquet of choices. White Pass Scenic Byway (Highway 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country', is a veritable smorgasbord of brown recreation signs where you can satisfy your activity appetite every season of the year with fishing, boating, wind surfing, hang-gliding, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain bikes, geocaching, birding and much, much more.

Hall Creek Cabin is just .3 of a mile east of downtown Packwood, WA en route to White Pass Ski Area, just 17-18 miles away. So embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wildlife preserve. Elk appear a natural extension of the downtown landscape. Packwood is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass Ski Area has great family skiing (downhill & cross country), snowshoeing and snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings.
