Why Bryan chose Packwood

Packwood is surrounded by some great recreational areas. We love to go up to the Grove of the Patriarchs to see the old growth cedars. Our family loves seeing the herds of elk that come into town and onto our property. We love the incredible mountain views and the fresh air that the forests provide.

What makes this house unique

Close to skiing, hiking, mushrooming, wildlife viewing, rafting, biking, and the list goes on.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great stay! Hiked Shriners Peak - grueling but great hike. 2 or 3 times you think you're at the top & then there's another peak :) Beautiful cabin - great movie selection. Thanks!

Absolutely love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful. Like a private slice of heaven. Everything that you need is here. Really enjoyed being out hiking all day and coming back to relax in the hot tub. We were able to watch elk every night and my son even saw a fox. 😁?

The whole area is just beautiful!!

Wonderful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Elk Ridge was fantastic. The house was spacious, had all the comforts, and was very well-stocked. The views from inside the house and from the large deck were fantastic. We regularly saw elk grazing below and many birds perched on the nearby trees. Distance to hiking trails in Mt Rainier NP is great. Highly recommended!!

Great cabin overlooking Packwood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Elk Ridge cabin, although to me its to big to be called a cabin its a house! A great house at that. 3bds/2bth/Dish TV/AC/Laundry all the amenities you could want or need. Loved the upstairs, big windows to look over the town and surrounding area. Large deck across the back to relax and watch the nightly routine of the elk to feed down below. Town has good places to eat. Cruisers for pizza and huge breakfast, Blue Spruce for Hamburgers and Beer, Cliff Droppers also has great burgers. We would definitely recommend Elk Ridge cabin as a wonderful place to stay!

Great family vacation!

Awesome home in a great location. The home was equipped with everything you need, the view off the deck watching the elk was great. Would love to go back every year.

Overall the house was great and location perfect for our excursions.

Great house and location. As others have said shelves in bathroom would be appreciated, but that is a minor issue. The restaurants in town could definitely do better.

Elk Ridge

  • 2 of 5

Nice place but air conditioner was unable to keep up with the summer sun coming in through the windows. We needed a fan(which we brought) to keep the upstairs bed room tolerable. Expected a view of Mt Rainier, but got a view of the town and south facing mountains.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. It can be challenging to keep cool in 110 degree temps for sure, even though we do have premium central air conditioning and heat in the house. I would recommend closing the curtains to keep the sun out while it's shining through the windows. We do have gorgeous views of the town and the majestic, surrounding mountains, however we do not advertise that you will be able to see Mt. Rainier from the house. Bryan
