"The pictures of the house does not do justice for the size. A large group gathering would feel like everyone had their own space. Loved the amenities like being able to hook up my phone directly to stereo system to play Pandora off the free wifi. Great speaker system. After staying two nights I still left feeling like I didn't take advantage of everything. Elks even greeted us as we arrived. Truly impressed. Will be staying again."

"The cabin is located close to many area attractions. It was a great get-away for my family and I. My son summited Mt Rainier and the guide service is within walking distance to the cabin. The area has many hiking trails, so the rest of my family went on day hikes and enjoyed coming back each evening to a roomy cabin with plenty of activities to do (hot tube, fire pit, games, grilling, relaxing on the large patio). We even saw a deer eating some wild black berries on the property. We plan to return there again."

"This is an excellent house for large groups. It only missed an excellent rating because the living room was rather small and it had a "somewhat inaccessible" bedroom upstairs. The dining area and table were great, but the living room was too small for a large group to congregate. The upstairs bedroom is only accessible through the upstairs bathroom. If someone is in the bathroom you are stuck in the bedroom until they are finished.
All in all, this is a great house and we would rent it again in a heartbeat.
p.s., no pets, even well behaved pets."

"To say this beautiful home is a cabin is an understatement. It's a well appointed, beautifully designed home in the woods. My husband and I spent 4 nights with 2 other couples in the Olmsted's cabin, with plenty of room to "breath", yet still be able to enjoy the common area as a group for games or watching movies.
Amenities: Everything was as described, plus Marilyn has thought of everything you could want for cooking meals at in the great kitchen in the cabin.
Maintenance/cleanliness: The cabin is very well taken care of and very clean
Marilyn was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns that I had. Her typical response time via email was less than 2 hours.
A couple of tips:
* All 6 of us didn't have a single bar of cell service the entire time we were in Packwood (At&T and T-Mobile) - print your stay details out in advance so you don't have to rely on cell data!
* Throw blankets are in the ottoman in the living room
* The internet is a bit slow, especially if multiple devices are using it at once
* There are 2 great trails directly behind the cabin
In short, everyone loved the vacation and we'll definitely book the cabin in the future if we find ourselves considering the area."
