About John

Our names are Bill & Tricia Meier and we are the proud owners of these beautiful Cowlitz River Cabinsi. Each is named appropriately, starting with the RAINIER LOG HOUSE, THE ADAMS CHALET, THE ST HELEN’S COTTAGE.

As far back as our dating years, we had dreamed of moving out of the city of Olympia and building a log house somewhere high in a mountainous area. About 10 years ago, we got serious and started our search throughout Washington and Oregon for land that would be just the right fit for us. Within a year we stumbled onto this piece of ground and it was love at first site. Finding these 8 acres of land was the beginning of making our dreams come true. Within 2-years of our purchase, we packed up our belongings and moved out to our 8 acre piece of Packwood Heaven.

Why John chose Randle

The first of our cabins to be built was the Rainier Log House. Our plan had always been to purchase a log house kit, but Bill decided he desired an AUTHENTIC log house and he wanted to master the construction himself from top to bottom. So after purchasing a used boom truck and enough logs from a neighbor logging who was logging his property, Bill was on his way. The Rainier Log House was his first masterpiece. Next came THE ST. HELENS COTTAGE and THE MT. ADAMS CHALET soon followed.

It has all been an adventurous labor of love. We hope, whichever of our beauties you choose, you will make memories to last forever.

Spectacular cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six family members and two dogs unanimously highly recommend this wonderful cabin!

We enjoyed the Cowlitz River, the garden, the hot tub, and in general, the comfy digs! We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen as well.

It was a great location and we enjoyed the drive through the national park

on our way to majestic Mount Rainier with its beautiful wild flowers.

All the way back we talked about returning to the cabin and the national park in the near future. Next time we will stay longer.

Beautiful cabin, beautiful area. A few minor suggestions

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, especially loved the porch area, and the playground outside.Loved that all the basic amenities were provided. Wish that the river access was a little easier Terrain, or at least a little better maintained, it was a long trek through a narrow, blackberry brambled path with hills that no middle-age woman with a three-year-old and a river float in tow should have to climb.

Best getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for a quick weekend getaway. The communication with the management was terrific - John called to make sure we had a car equipped to drive in the snow and to let us know what the road conditions were prior to our arrival. Really great service!

The house is perfect. Kids slept upstairs, perfect that the tv area is upstairs too so you can really feel like you're disconnecting if that's what you want. While the kids entertained themselves upstairs in the evening, we sat on the couch with the fire going and just talked. Sunday the snow was coming down and it was a beautiful winter wonderland. We made a quick trip to white pass for some snow boarding and tubing - an easy 45 min drive. The house was clean and had all of the amenities you could want in a home away from home.

We did have one complaint....... we wish we could've stayed longer. This will be on our short list of places to return to. Would love to experience the river in the summer time. Thanks for such a great time!

One of the best places we rent

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at he Adams cabin for 7 days (August 2016). The cabin is great, clean, and very well taken care off. John was always available and ready to answer our questions and provide recommendations about local places. Location is perfect, its quiet, with beautiful view, next to the river. Organic garden was a delight, co many vegetables and herbs (huge plus for us, since most of us are vegetarians). Packwood is great little town, great Market, you can find all you needed there (food supply). Hike to Packwood lake is highly recommended (4.2 miles, beautiful blue water). Cabin is fairly close to Mount Rainier Park (about 40 min to Paradise, 90 min to Sunrise).

We rented many properties through VRBO and this one is probably one of the best.

A fantastic stay aside from a single deal-breaker

  • 3 of 5

Just back from a 7-night stay. I was overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the environment and the great shape and general cleanliness of the chalet. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked, just add food! It's a place I would have recommended to nearly anyone. There's a huge vegetable garden there for the picking--wonderful!

BUT, there was one really important issue that is now a deal-breaker for me in terms of ever going back, and that was the horrendous shape of the bed in the master bedroom! It had a visible sag that was super magnified when one person laid down, let alone two! We had to cling to the edge to prevent being buried in the pit. Moreover, every single move inspired a chorus of noisy springs that repeatedly woke us both up. Mornings meant such relief to get out of that bed, but such a disappointment because of the poor sleep quality that prevented a feeling of rest from the day before. I chose this particular rental because it had a first-floor bedroom--I've got a physical disability that prevents stair climbing, besides there's no bathroom upstairs to serve those two bedrooms. Stuck with that terrible bed, I highly recommend that anyone who thinks they might want to stay on the first floor (adjacent to a wonderful hot tub!) first make sure that the bed has been replaced. Yes, it's a major drawback to staying here, yet everything else about it seemed almost idyllic! I was also disappointed to find there was only iron patio furniture--no comfortable place to sit outside for longer than a cup of coffee.

The town of Packwood held a few interesting places to visit, but the height of our trip was a slow drive from Packwood toward Mt. Ranier via Forest Highway 52. What a delightful drive! Unfortunately, there aren't any handicap-accessible sites on Mt. Adams to visit, although there are at Mts. St. Helens & Ranier. We just found MSH to be too far to drive for a day trip. As I said, the beauty around the property and the general quiet made simply sitting in the recliner, looking out the open window, and reading to be a real satisfying past-time for me. I'm not so sure young kids would agree, but there's a new wide-screen TV upstairs for them. The echo in the chalet would probably make any quiet activity impossible if the TV was on, but I don't go to the mountains to watch TV. If you can find enjoyment listening to the wind in the evergreens, the birds busy chirping, and nightly soaks in the hot tub under the stars, you'd love this place.

Owner's Response: Hi sPeeDeeBee, I apologize for the bed... I had someone else say the bed wasn't very comfortable but when I laid on it it seemed fine. Laying on it, and sleeping on it are not the same though, and I had no idea it was that uncomfortable. I replaced the bed today with a Pillow Top Mattress and tightened down the headboard to prevent the squeaking noise. I'm glad you enjoyed the area! John
