With Two Master Suites, a third bedroom with a queen bed, a double futon in the media room and two single futons in the loft area (for children only), this home can easily be shared by two families.

The hot tub is close to river for you to relax in after a long day of hiking or skiing. An outdoor fire pit is ready for roasting marshmallows. A media room is waiting for you with the latest electronic entertainment equipment. When it comes time to cook, you will find the fully equipped kitchen a wonderfully place to cook and entertain. Or if you wish, you can cook on the gas BBQ outside. A gas fireplace in the living room will make your evenings very enjoyable.

Beautiful setting; house exactly as described and represented in photos.

Beautiful setting; house exactly as described and represented in photos. The location is great spot for exploring the national parks and forests that are nearby. We were a family of 7 and fit comfortably in the home.

Jim, the care taker, was exactly as an earlier reviewer described: "a font of information". He is very nice, always helpful and not intrusive to your stay at all.

Thank you for a fun summer holiday.

Words can't do justice

  • 5 of 5

The location and view of the Cowlitz river go a long way to making this place really special. Not to downplay the building itself. It is gracious, spacious, and, just plain terrific. We would definitely come back.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome family xmas at this beautiful Packwood property!!! The house was very spacious and luxurious for my family of 6. We had 3 wonderful days of skiing at White Pass ski resort which is only 15-20 minutes from the house. The house has magnificent views of the Cowlitz river and Mt. Rainier. Truly enjoyed sitting in the hot tub with snow all around and just sitting having a cup of coffee in the morning looking out the huge windows at the wildlife. The house has everything that you would need, just bring clothes and food! The house is very clean and the caretaker is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely rent this house again!!! Everything about this house says "luxurious" Would be an awesome romantic getaway or holiday getaway. We definitely enjoyed our White Christmas of 2017!!!!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this Cowlitz River property, forever to be known in our family as the 'River House'. The kids didn't want to leave, and are, even now, asking when we came return! The kitchen is fully stocked, the rooms spacious, the beds very comfy, the furnishings lovely, the deck and patio perfect for stargazing. We enjoyed every aspect of this house, from the hot tub to the breakfast nook to the upstairs balconies, from which we watched elk wandering the river banks. The kids (aged 7, 9, and 11) especially enjoyed exploring the river bank, wading along the shore, catching frogs, and trying to skip rocks. We had a campfire a few evenings, toasted marshmallows, and enjoyed the soft sounds of the river moving by.

The owners are very easy to work with, very accessible. As an added bonus, there is a caretaker on the property! We stopped by to see him a few times, and found him a font of information on the area; he was most friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive.

This property is very close to both Mt.Rainier and Mt.St.Helen's, so we could explore both areas with ease. It is also only a few minutes drive from a grocery store, which we found handy.

I highly recommend this property. We loved it, and will return!

Amazing Home at an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

The Cowlitz River Home is as amazing as the pictures look. This is not one of those situations where the pictures are from 20 years ago and the house is really a dump. This home is almost too nice to be a rental. A big open kitchen and living room space that is great for group gatherings and plenty of beds to go around. But really its the yard that makes this place great. Hot tub. Fire pit. River access. Everything you could ask for and more. The house is also very conveniently located. Packwood is a 2 minute drive away where you can pick up any groceries you forgot while hiking is also only a 10-20 minute drive away. There is a groundskeeper who stays on the property but you don't even know he is there. The property manager is also very easy to deal with and always responded to emails within the day. I would recommended this home to anyone.
