          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Jeff is a Colorado native and has lived in Washington for 20 years while Heidi is a Washingtonian. We currently live in Packwood, Washington and work on the Ranch. We love to ride horses and be outdoors, so this part of the country is especially attractive to us. The mild climate and beautiful scenery make living in the Pacific Northwest and the Cowlitz River valley a real pleasure.

          Why the Owner Chose Packwood:
          This property's location, ammenities, and views make it a unique recreational opportunity.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          This property is especially beautiful along the Cowlitz river valley and surrounded by majestic mountain ranges. We have trails to ride our horse right off the property on both sides of the river, plus we are less than a half hour from White Pass Ski Area, which is another activity that we love to partake in. Elk roam our property and the surrounding 500 acres freely, with little threat from the outside until the hunting season starts. This is a truly spectacular treat for anyone who visits.
