About the Property

2 Bedroom Plus Large Loft, Sleeps 12 W/ Easy Mt Ski Access

The Mt Rainier Log Cabin was built in 1975 by the Jackson family. It features hand-hewn logs, constructed by local craftsmen with many hand-crafted features.

The cabin is part of the Timberline community with guest access (Memorial Day - Labor Day) to two swimming pools, tennis courts and play fields. In the summer it is only 10 minutes to the East entrance of Mt Rainier National Park, Stephen's Canyon Entrance and in the winter it is only 15 minutes up to the White Pass Ski area.

The cabin (downstairs) features the original living room with slate fireplace, full kitchen, laundry room (with additional toilet) and master bedroom with bathroom (toilet, shower & sink).

An addition was built in the 1990's which expanded the downstairs to include an additional rec room with board games, cards and a 32' TV & over 200 movies to choose from. This room also features a free-standing wood fireplace.

The upstairs features another bedroom (this bedroom is open to the staircase) and full private bathroom (toilet, sink & bathtub/shower). Upstairs there is also a large loft with an additional queen bed and 6 twin beds.

This is an excellent cabin for two families who want to come up with their kids.

The exterior of the cabin lights up each night with Christmas lights year round. Two decks and a firepit make great star gazing & smores roasting memories.

The Mt Rainier Log cabin is located in Upper Timberline, 3.5 miles east of Packwood and 17 miles west of White Pass Ski Area.

The cabin is in the center of a quiet cul de sac that backs up to the national forest.

As a member of Timberline, guests have access to the community swimming pool, tennis courts and playfields (Memorial Day - Labor Day) in the Lower Timberline area.

Nearby attractions include Mt Rainier National Park including favorites such as the Sunrise Visitor Centor, Ohanapecosh & the Grove of the Patriarchs (some of the biggest, oldest trees in the Washington Cascades).

Downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as cross-country skiing & snow-shoeing are just 17 miles away at the White Pass Ski Area. This is often described as a family friendly, little Bavarian style ski area.

The Mt Rainier Log Cabin is located just off of Hwy 12 and is centrally located between Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens & Mt Adams.

Packwood is the home to several large events including the annual Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend Flea Market.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a local family who have lived in the Pacific Northwest our whole lives. My grandparents built the cabin next door to this log cabin in 1973 and were neighbors for over 30 years. We grew up hunting, fishing and playing with the neighbors and felt we were a part of each other's family. In 2003, my husband I & purchased the log cabin with their blessing to continue the tradition of family time at the cabin and we have had many wonderful times with our own two kids, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents & friends.

Why the Owner Chose Packwood, WA, USA:
Because our family cabin was next door, it was the perfect fit when we bought the log cabin for our own family. My grandparents established many cabin traditions - from hot chili on the stove when we came down from a day of skiing to hours of playing cards by the fire. Whether we were skiing at White Pass or swimming at the pool all summer, it was all about family & memories. When we bought the cabin 10 years ago our two boys were in preschool and kindergarten and over the years we have spent more quality family time than can be expressed. Now that they are teenagers, we find ourselves staying home on weekends for sports and activities and want to share our special cabin with other families.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One of the great things about the log cabin is that it is set up for families. There are plenty of beds and a full kitchen to prepare home cooked meals. The log cabin itself is really the most unique benefit of this cabin. Just being inside reminds you of a time that is a slower pace. We have kept not only the original log cabin in tact, but done several upgrades to the stairs (for stability & charm) and the bathrooms.
