Recent Rainier & St. Helens property reviews

  • Romantic gateway...

    "Excellent place to get away for few days and be near the most beautiful national park in the US. The cabin has all the necessary things for you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. It was easy to find if you have a printed google map, otherwise don't rely on cell coverage if you have Verizon (not sure about other carriers), the only place I had reception was at the Crystal Mountain Resort area. It was nice to be out of touch for few days. Overall it is a great place to stay for what you pay."

  • Cozy, everything you need, attentive owner

    "Cute and cozy cabin with everything you need. Extra towels for hot tub so you could have a fresh towel for shower was appreciated. Outdoor fire pit with chairs, and hot tub were great additions to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Upon arrival there was trash everywhere in the driveway as an animal had gotten into it. We called Tami and left her a message. She was there promptly to clean it up. She definitely takes pride in the property and making her guests feel comfortable and at home. We also had some questions during and after our booking. She responded to emails very promptly. Would definitely stay here again."

  • Fabulous House

    "This house is so comfortable, so clean, so well cared for, and the view of Rainier cannot be beat. The kitchen is just outstanding with its HUGE wooden table (room for everyone) and has everything you could possibly want. Gorgeous cabinetry throughout, AC if you wish it, a cute gas fireplace, superior W/D, leather furniture, and from the back deck you can hear a brook rushing through the woods past the property line. The spa is super clean and the firepit is enormous, perfect for a large family. From here we toured both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens in one day, though we did get up early. This house would offer convenient accommodations for White Pass ski area as well, if the road conditions permit. Just off the main road, but perfectly private and quiet. There's a pizza place and a market just down the road. We enjoyed our stay."

  • Excellent!

    "We had a wonderful time at Timberline Meadows. It’s such a cozy, relaxing place, super clean with thoughtful chosen equipment and furniture. We loved the hot tub and watching the deer stroll by in the morning and at night. We can highly recommend this lovely cabin!"

Rainier & St. Helens Travel Tips

Relax and Unwind with Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.

Washington Vacation Rentals Offer a Variety of Things to Do

The Columbia River offers a host of activities before it reaches the Pacific Ocean, including fishing, swimming and hiking. The Hoh Rain Forest has scenic drives and walks amidst the moss-covered trees and hikers will enjoy the trails around Ledbetter Point State Park. Visitors can rent a boat on Lake Quinault and spend the day fishing, picnicking and relaxing on the water. Wildlife viewing is also plentiful in this unspoiled area.

The whole coastline of southwest Washington has miles of sandy beaches to be enjoyed. Ocean Shores beach has many organized activities for families such as sandcastle competitions, summer festivals, beach buggy rentals, horseback riding, swimming, and the usual surfing and watersports activities. Walking and beachcombing are popular activities at spectacular Ruby Beach with its piles of driftwood. Whale watching is an exciting activity in this area, and many companies at Westport and Ocean Shores offer boat trips to see the Pacific grey whales which migrate along the coast from March to May. More family fun can be enjoyed at the indoor Hoquaim YMCA Waterpark which offers a lap pool and racquetball and basketball courts.

The Climate and Weather at Southwest Washington Ocean Condos

Southwest Washington State is known for its mild but damp climate, largely affected by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean shores has summer highs of around 70 F from July through September with very little rainfall in that season. Cooler fall days bring more rainfall when temperatures drop to the mid-50s F. The winters see up to 12 inches of rainfall but has mild temperatures of 47 F during the day and stays above freezing at night. The inland areas with higher elevations will have snow during the winter months and generally lower temperatures.

Getting to Your Washington Vacation Rentals

The nearest major airport to your southwest Washington lodging is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport which is 93 miles from the center of Ocean Shores. The area is also easy to access by car from the I-5 which runs up the west coast from Sacramento, California to the Canadian border.

Popular Places to Visit from Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

There is no shortage of places to visit from your southwest Washington lodging. The protected scenic area of the Columbia River Gorge is overlooked by the city of Vancouver, not to be confused with the Canadian city of the same name further north. The city of Aberdeen has a replica of Captain Gray's ship, the Lady Washington, which is considered the state's ambassador. Fans of musician Kurt Cobain can take a walking tour of his homes and haunts as Aberdeen was his hometown before he joined the rock band, Nirvana. Near Grayland beach, just south of Westport, is worth visiting for its spectacular oceanfront scenery and beachcombing opportunities.

Willapa Bay is a serene area to visit along the 26-mile Longbeach Peninsula with its superb opportunities for wildlife spotting. Gift stores and restaurants are worth stopping for at Ocean Park. Port Ilwaco has great art galleries en route to the North Head Lighthouse. Ocean Shores, Taholah and Point Grenville all have wonderful beaches for families to spend the day.

Further inland are the sightseeing opportunities at Mount St. Helen's, the National Forest and the National Wildlife Refuge.
