"So we didn't stay at this particular location-- BUT we did spend last weekend at their Timberline Chalet. I figured my boyfriend and I needed some relaxation time away from our busy lives and booked. There was some mix up initially with booking however Bob was accommodating. When we got there the first thing I noticed was the ceiling.. OMG probably the most beautiful thing I've seen on a cabin or vacation home just absolutely gorgeous. The house had everything we needed and the caretaker was super sweet even when we called her about a beeping smoke detector (which she had to climb a super tall ladder and a step stool to get to) that ended up being The co2 detector behind the couch (was going dead). Travis and I felt like doofuses but she was great. We did notice that there is a closed circuit video camera on site not sure if there is just the one or if there are more but hopefully it was just the one and they just use it to prevent people from #1 being stupid and #2 breaking some of the rules. Which is really no biggie atleast it wasn't for us. ANYWAY do check out their other vacation rentals you will absolutely not be let down as they are gorgeous! We will definitely be back every few months and visit them all!! Thanks Madison and Trav"Guest: Mamie M. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 5, 2014View listing
"We have stayed in a few other Packwood rentals and this certainly a keeper. Granite, tile, super clean, great decor, well-stocked kitchen - really well done. I was hesitant to book based on another reviewer's comment that it was 45 to White Pass but it's only 2 mlies out of Packwood, about 25 minutes with some slush. We drove daily to ski without a problem. Only minor thing I would clarify is that the king bedroom is technically a loft - the bed sits far back in the loft room, so there's no line of sight up from the living room (which is larger than photos appear), but noise can travel up if you're with a group. The best thing about this 'cabin' is the awesome view, huge yard and privacy. Will certainly re-book!"Guest: Innkeeperamy Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 23, 2014View listing
"I simply love this log cabin. I stayed for six days and felt completely nurtured in this sweet environment. Just being on this 8 acre property helps so much to ease my mind after spending so much time in the city. The log cabin, the owner of the property and being in the forest served to regenerate my spirit. Thank you so much Moon Mountain!"Guest: Kat Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 6, 2014View listing

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
