With Two Master Suites, a third bedroom with a queen bed, a double futon in the media room and two single futons in the loft area (for children only), this home can easily be shared by two families.

The hot tub is close to river for you to relax in after a long day of hiking or skiing. An outdoor fire pit is ready for roasting marshmallows. A media room is waiting for you with the latest electronic entertainment equipment. When it comes time to cook, you will find the fully equipped kitchen a wonderfully place to cook and entertain. Or if you wish, you can cook on the gas BBQ outside. A gas fireplace in the living room will make your evenings very enjoyable.

Packwood Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home! We traveled with three families and had plenty of room for everyone. The owners did a wonderful job designing and building this home and it's a treat to be able to share it. It's in a great location right on the Cowlitz river. I would suggest inner-tubing down the river to the house or into town from the home and/or bringing a life jacket to explore the river and it's various channels. The hot tub is perfectly located with shade in the afternoon and a great view of the river and Mt. Rainier. The whole home was well air conditioned and we were very comfortable inside with 100 degree weather outside. The kitchen was well stocked and there's a great pantry for food storage. There is a great covered outdoor area that leads to a mud room for your hiking and ski gear and is perfect place for grilling in good and bad weather (shade for hot weather, cover for rain). Nice HUGE windows look out at the river and mountain views (including a great look at Mt. Rainier). Bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. This is custom home living done right. Bedrooms are secluded enough to allow for night owls to stay up and others to sleep. The only negative I would voice is that there is no single dining table to accommodate everyone, but it was fun to have a kids table and adult table. The home is close enough to town that you can quickly stop by the grocery store for provisions (3 minute drive), but tucked away in the trees so that you feel like you are well away from civilization. If you have a larger group, this is the Packwood home for you.

A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 friends who have vacationed together for years. We came to the Cowlitz River home and were immediately blown away by the beauty!! The pictures simply do not do it justice!! The home was wonderful, accomodating, and very comfortable-- a very relaxing place to regroup and kick back after a day of hiking the trails inside Mt. Rainer National Park. We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and yet the little town of Packwood was just a five minute drive to pick up any necessities for the week. We also really enjoyed eating at the Blue Spruce Saloon as well as the pizza place (can't remember the name) that happened to serve not only great pizza, but amazing breakfasts as well! The view from the back porch of the home (with the river and Mt. Rainer in the background) was to die for!! Our favorite time of each day was in the evening when we would all sit out by the campfire, listen to the river, and watch the sun set over the mountain. We also loved the mornings-- sitting outside, drinking coffee, watching the wildlife. There were many beautiful butterflies and birds all over the place , as well as a constant faint smell of evergreen from all of the trees. We even saw a bald eagle fly overhead!! It truly was a relaxing and magnificently memorable vacation!! We'll definitely be back!!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, great house, amazing view of Mt Rainier from the house, the hot tub, the fire pit. The house is fantastic, there is so much space, we had eight people on the vacation and we all had plenty of space to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. Great location, an easy drive to Mt Rainier park...we hiked every day, Sunrise, Paradise, the PCT...all within a short drive. Packwood is a small town but the grocery store carries all the basics. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Amazing Property - location and views

  • 5 of 5

Incredible property! It's always a good sign when the family enters and exhales a collective "wow!". While some of the furnishings and bedding could use a refresh (as seen in the photos, and for date rather than cleanliness or quality), that's really nitpicking - especially given the comfy leather lounger in the living room that inspired no less than two naps. The views across the Cowlitz to Rainier are amazing and the sound of the water each evening was sublime - particularly while relaxing in the spotlessly clean hot tub scanning the trees opposite for bald eagles. The cut and dried firewood, kindling and marshmallow/hot dog roasting sticks (cut and sharpened from fresh switches) were a great touch. We considered booking a condo at Crystal Mountain with more immediate views of the mountain, but are glad we booked here instead. The house is spacious, quiet, and - while 3 minutes from town and 15 from the mountain - makes you feel like you're at your own riverfront, first rate wilderness lodge! Highly recommended.
