About David Swanson

We have owned Fairway Getaway since 2005. My family has been coming to Packwood and enjoying everything it has to offer since I was a young child. I look forward to and am excited to continue to enjoy this area while passing on some of the same joys and new memories of this area to my children! Packwood will always be our second home for years to come! This community is our family's sanctuary retreat to golf, hike, ski, snowshoe, bike, and fish! We often relax in the hot tub at the end of the day while watching the abundance of just one of the many local Elk herds mow (grazing) the golf course nightly. We look forward to hosting your visit to Fairway Getaway!

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit to 'Fairway Getaway' is it's location nestled on hole number 2 on the 9 hole H.V.P. Country Club golf course. Our home is just a 2 minute walk to the H.V.P. club house, pool, playground and driving range.

Great Family Spot to stay while playing in the outdoors

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 active boys loved staying at this charming cabin. We were mostly up skiing at White Pass over the 2 days we stayed but enjoyed having a very comfortable, true cabin-in-the-woods, place to rest. The hot tub was a highlight for the boys!! I loved the eclectic decor of the home but also the fact that everything was there to make it a comfortable, easy place to relax and prepare meals. Super clean as well! We will come back! -Erika (Tacoma)

This cabin sits amongst towering pines and mountains-beautiful! It was very peaceful in the early evenings and amazing to watch the elk graze at the back fence after a full day of hiking. The town of Packwood is quaint and everyone I met was very friendly. This was the perfect setting for exploring the Tatoosh and Goat Rocks Wilderness also Mt. Rainier. Dave and his staff are helpful and respond quickly to any questions that one might have. I will be back.!!

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for 1 night only and will consider staying here again if we plan to visit the area next time.

We really liked the Cabin and its construction - it had everything from a fire place to kitchen appliances (including a slow cooker which my wife really liked) to hot tub etc. There is no wifi or cable but it has a good collection of DVDs and always nice to watch a family movie withe the fire turned on.

It is conveniently located to access Mt. Rainier or other activities in that region. I loved the golf course - it is 9 hole and not a PGA level but it great for beginners like or for golfers looking to have a quick fix and get some practice.

David is a greta host. He was prompt to respond and very helpful about some minor issues we faced.

Great owner and Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay last minute and this was the place I ended up. The owner called me right away and accommodated my wife and I (dog too) very well. It was quite, clean, and very nice. I loved the hot tub and fireplace and the golf course out from the was nice. Local antique shop is a great place to spend money. I miss the WiFi and not having a newer TV but that's nice sometimes. Great place

Love this cabin

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors and the pre-teen and teenaged kids now consider this familiar territory a "home" away from home. Wood burning stove warms up bodies and gloves after epic crashes and runs at White Pass. A great space for ski weekend! Thanks again, Fairway Getaway!
