Enjoy a get-away to our cabin in Packwood, WA, near Mt. Rainier National Park and White Pass Ski Resort. View deer and elk, hike to nearby rivers to fish, and enjoy the cabin's hot tub year-round. Summer offers 2 community pools...one for good swimmers and another for small children. There's also a community tennis court, playground, basketball court, horseshoes, and large baseball field area. For those who like to hike, the cabin has a laminated Northwest Forest Pass for you to use while staying at the cabin (normally a $30 purchase, necessary to hike to Packwood Lake and other areas). Simply leave it in the cabin when you leave, and there's no charge to you! In winter, there are lots of areas to sled, some within walking distance! Listen to the birds and watch the chipmunks.
The cabin includes one loft bedroom with two full-size beds and a queen bed. There's also a pull-out couch. We have a variety of games, books, and movies available when you are not watching the fire in the wood stove or relaxing in the large jetted hot tub. Enjoy cable tv (as of 1/3/12) or watch a movie from the cabin collection. An entrance to the cabin has plenty of room to store your skis, boots, and snowboards in winter, and to keep your air mattresses for the pool in summer. Relax on the spacious deck for some sun or a family picnic, while viewing the mountain hills of Goat Rocks nearby. Hook up to Wifi at the community pool nearby.
Packwood is famous for having the largest outdoor market in WA on both Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Or eat pizza at Cruisers, hike to Packwood Lake for the day, visit Paradise or Ohanapecosh at Mt. Rainier to enjoy a ranger led walk or a campfire talk, attend Packwood's Holiday Bazaar, Quilt Show, Art, or Rod Run weekends. The Cowlitz River offers fishing and there are waterfalls within a short hike just across the street from the cabin in the national forest. Packwood has a golf driving range and a golf course just down the road. Light an outdoor fire at the cabin, when there's no burn ban, to enjoy some hotdogs or s'mores.

Owners Bruce and Linda LaVergne have enjoyed spending summers at the cabin with their children and grandchildren in the pool, playground, fishing, and hiking, and winters on the slopes at White Pass. Now that our children are grown and we are not using the cabin as often as before, we'd like to share it with you!
The Owner purchased this cabin in 1996
We purchased the cabin in Packwood after we began to ski regularly at White Pass Ski Resort, only a 20 minute drive away. The number of elk and deer seen, as well as the amenities which were part of the Timberline Community Association, also attracted our interest in the property.
We own two lots, so there is enough area outdoors for a seasonal marshmallow roast or for kids to explore the plants, rocks, leaves, and wildlife. The state's largest outdoor market on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends still has our daughter looking to buy a porcelain doll each year. Although there are other cabins nearby, it is so quiet there that sleeping in isn't a problem! It's a great spot to relax.
Located just off Hwy 12, it is easy to find.
With the Gifford National Forest located across our cul-de-sac, there are many trails to hike, waterfalls to see, and streams to fish.
The local coffee shop has free wifi as well as friendly talk and great coffee.
We rented this cabin for President’s Day and had a very good time. The owner was very accommodating, the cabin is cozy and has everything you might need, including washer and dryer, which is nice in the winter time, especially when it’s pouring rain. White Pass is 12 miles away and is a nice little resort for beginning skiers (+ there is a child care center). The cabin is in a cul-de-sac so it’s safe for kids to play, it’s in the woods and there is a little stream, so it’s just perfect. There is no wifi and close to no phone service; we could do texts but that’s it, which was great! The hot tub is really nice, and big, the house warms up really fast. We had the 3 kids sleep in the loft (there could have been a 4th child up there but… we only have 3!), and us parents slept on the couch in the living room. We put the mattress on the floor, it was super comfortable and SO quiet, we slept like babies, 12 hours per night. I hope we will go back again.
The cabin was chosen to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. She wanted a camping experience, yet late November is too cold for traditional camping. The cabin surpassed mine and several 14-15 year old girls expectations. It was well stocked with towels, games and kitchen needed. They enjoyed the loft and the cute door to look down below. To watch teenage girls play battleship, take a nature walk and play on a playground was a joy. The kitchen had everything needed for meal prep which was appreciated. The wood stove and fire-pit were enjoyed by all! I would not hesitate to book again…Thank you for sharing this great place!
We stayed here for 3 nights in July with extended family, and the owner allowed us to have family camp on the property too. The owner is great with communication, and very accommodating. We loved having access to the pool and park. It was a short drive up the mountain to Paradise and hiking. The cabin is rustic and older, but clean and well kept. We loved the hot tub and washer/dryer too. Both are newer and in good shape. Thank you, and we hope to come back!
My husband and I stayed here with our 3 children. There was plenty of room and it had everything we needed! We enjoyed Mt Rainier and the many streams and rivers nearby to play in. The hot tub was amazing! The pool was heated and so much fun! Everything was very clean. We stayed during the week and had no neighbors making it very quiet! We saw a fox and elk and a toad all from the cabin! The town is very small and not much to do besides hiking. It was great to escape our busy life for a couple days! Very relaxing! Thank you so much!
We spent several days here in mid-July visiting family in Seattle and sightseeing and enjoyed the area immensely. The cabin has a nice deck and is clean. It's adequate to anyone's needs insofar as "base of operations" for whatever season-appropriate activity you may wish. The hot tub was great and the upstairs beds are comfortable. Do not expect "time-share-quality" furnishings and equipment though. It is furnished and equipped more in a family 'hand-me-down' style. While adequate, it is fairly Spartan should you find yourself caught indoors for more than a day. All-in-all, a great place to use as a home-base for enjoying the greater area and we would return here again.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. It was nice being someplace close to so many hiking trails in both Mt. Rainier and Gifford Pinchot forests. Definitely made use of the area trail information provided in the cabin. Having a hot tub to relax in after a day of hiking is a definite plus. And the large deck out back also provides a good spot for relaxing ourdoors. The bedroom loft is a bit of an inconvenience but was not an issue for us. Wish we could have stayed longer. We plan on returning for another summer trip in the future and will likely try to book the same cabin.
New downhill ski/snowboard area opened in 2010-11 at White Pass. Close to the state's largest swap meet in Packwood, held on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Can hike from cabin into national forest across the cul-de-sac.
