Bear Lodge is a classic log cabin home in Packwood, WA. Experience the magic and beauty of the Cascade Mountains and Mt. Rainier National Park in this beautifully built and immaculately maintained vacation cabin just outside of town. Have your ultimate mountain holiday in this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. It's the ideal place for larger family getaways or several couples on an annual ski or hiking trip.

Sitting on wooded property, this luxuriously rustic and cozy cabin and peaceful setting is perfect for your vacation in the Cascade Mountains. After a wonderful day exploring Mt. Rainier National Park (only 8 miles away), hiking, fishing, hunting, or skiing, cook a fabulous meal in the fully equipped kitchen (or grill on the deck outdoors!) before sitting down for an elegant meal in the dining room where every meal feels like a special occasion. Cozy up in the large living room with a fire in the stone fireplace and share stories with your friends and family about the day's adventures. Out on the deck, a large hot tub makes for a delightful evening of stargazing and quiet relaxation. After a busy day of biking, hiking, skiing, or fishing, soak in the tub and listen to the sounds of nature in the secluded 3 acre back yard. We have over 60 movies on DVD and over 20 board games for your vacation entertainment!

This home also has wireless internet access, so if you must do some work on your vacation, you may do so in the comfort of the cabin, on the porch or in the hammock while you enjoy the natural beauty of the area. As cell service is "spotty" in the mountains, there is a land line for your convenience.

We are family friendly and even have a Graco 'Pack N Play' and a portable booster style high chair for your use. Our cabin is a smoke free environment (except for use of the fireplace). All linens are hypoallergenic (down alternative comforters).

Bear Lodge welcomes the truly young, the young at heart, the great adventurer and those just desiring a peaceful rest for the mind, body and soul!

Ski - only 20 miles from White Pass a paradise for downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, sledding and snowshoeing.

Visit National Parks - 8 miles from Mt. Rainier National Park and about 80 miles from Mt. St. Helen's National Monument.

Hike - There are no end of trails to hike, rivers to walk, vistas to view, and flora and fauna to enjoy. Surrounded by wilderness, you could spend years finding new trails. Our cabin is a half mile from the Gifford Pinchot National Forest - one of the oldest National Forests in the United States. It encompasses 1,312,000 acres!

Fish - Great fishing on the Cowlitz River and Skate Creek, only minutes from the cabin.

Hunt - Excellent hunting in the forests surrounding Packwood.


Arrival time is 5:00 pm and departure time is 10:00 a.m. We try to be as accommodating as we can be (a little more difficult during busy seasons) with the arrival and departure times. If your group needs an exception with the arrival or departure time, please feel free to inquire with your desired time changes, we will do our best to accommodate.

Come, sit and relax on one of our porches and enjoy a superb cup of the locally roasted coffee, while watching the elk graze at Bear Lodge. Please, be our guest; let our home be your home for a few days, a week, or longer if you can. We would be delighted to share the beauty of the beautiful Cascade mountains with you – and a home that will help you create the kind of memories you will relish for a lifetime!

The community of Packwood carries a reputation of being a small town community with very BIG hearts! Packwood is just West of White Pass Ski Resort and the Paradise entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. Packwood's community residents are very friendly, personable and helpful. This special historic hidden away Pacific Northwest community at the base of Mt Rainier is a new paradise every time you experience it! Packwood and it's surrounding area is any and every outdoor adventure's escape to nature with all of the wildlife, waterfalls and flowers to see while hiking on the countless trails or choosing to canoe or white water raft the countless lakes and rivers. Everything this area has to offer is just amazing and unsurpassed. The wildlife and natural surroundings through out this area will be any photographer's inspiration to photograph from morning until night. During the winter wonderland times in Packwood the down hill and cross country skiing at White Pass and the surrounding area is some of the best and most beautiful in the world! White Pass Ski Resort holds the boasting privileges to the original home slopes of both past and present Olympic/World Class skiers and snow boarders. With White Pass Ski Resort completing its new incredible expansion, it is now offering even more incredible and challenging runs for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. If you enjoy your winter wonderland with some speed within 15-45 minutes of Packwood you can find miles and miles of both groomed and ungroomed snowmobile trails as well as some of the best snow pack in the state. This are holds true to some of the BEST snowmobiling in the state of Washington! Southwest Washington holds the bragging rights to Sno-Parks at Johnson Creek and Skate Creek, both relatively near the Goat Rocks Wilderness and further south at Orr Creek and Wakepish. Johnson Creek is a local favorite with its top sail, or high elevation areas! The Packwood area also offers some of the most amazing ungroomed trails as well, which appeal to a certain type of snowmobiler with a certain type of machine. By far, Johnson Creek and the 47/52 snow park are the two best Snow-Parks in the area that haven’t really been discovered by too many snowmobile-rs yet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are very active in our communities both in Packwood and where we reside and work in the Puget Sound area. We have 3 wonderful children that are very excited to experience and enjoy more recreational activities and nature-time in Packwood and all of it's surrounding paradise. Our family loves to travel and have had multiple pleasurable experiences with staying in vacation rental homes. We have enjoyed our vacation rental experiences throughout the country so much, that we made the decision to own our own mountain retreat and share it with others like you. We hope you find Bear Lodge to be just as relaxing, peaceful and exhilarating for your soul as our family finds it to be!
