About the property

Located in the popular High Valley community, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Double lot!

GREAT CABIN! - Located in the popular High Valley Community, Buttercreek Bungalow has been a popular destination for families and couples for several years. Recently returned to the rental market, our cabin is designed to provide and affordable destination with the comforts of home, enhancing your experience in Packwood and the surrounding recreational areas. Whether you are visiting the recently expanded White Pass Ski Resort, hiking the trails of our national forestry land, fishing, golfing or just relaxing and enjoying a good book, Buttercreek Bungalow will fit your needs.

FAMILY FRIENDLY - Our family friendly cabin has two bedrooms, one bathroom with a double vanity, large laundry room, hot tub and a detached bunk house the kids will love! (Parents will too). The cabin sleeps 4 comfortably (6 using the futon in the living area) and the bunk house will accommodate an additional 4 with two sets of bunk beds. Our cabin is fully furnished and ready for your next get-a-way boasting a fantastic movie selection, HUGE fire pit, great wood burning stove and lots of games for the entire family.

GREAT LOCATION - Buttercreek Bungalow sits on a huge corner lot in High Valley Park #1 with a view of Butter Butte. It is within a short walk to Buttercreek, the Cowlitz River and the High Valley Golf Club. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful so when it's time to relax and unwind there is no better place. Oh, and we also receive consistent visits from a large herd of elk that reside in Packwood. But no worries, they are friends of the family.

FUN ACTIVITIES FOR ALL - High Valley Golf Community affords guests with a golf course, two heated swimming pools, a kiddie pool and playground. Ski bums and outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity to White Pass Recreational area on Mt. Rainier, Gifford National Forest, Mt. St, Helens, and the Goat Rocks Wilderness area. Spend your day hiking, biking, golfing, fishing, or skiing then come back and unwind in the hot tub or around a fire in the huge fire pit.

About Kevin and Carla Olson

We are a happily married couple with two sons residing in Gig Harbor, Washington. We recently became 'empty-nesters' as our youngest just went off to college this fall. Kevin works for Valley Regional Fire Authority and Carla owns a dance studio, Academy of Dance. When not working, we enjoy golf, fitness, music, sports and get-away's to our cabin :)

Kevin and Carla Olson purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kevin and Carla Olson chose Packwood

We purchased this property to have a year around get-away for our family where we could ski, snowboard, and golf during the day and have a peaceful, relaxing place to spend the evenings. We wanted to purchase a cabin located in the High Valley Community because of it's proximity to White Pass and our access to free golf and two large heated swimming pools. We chose to purchase this cabin because it is set on two lots in a quiet neighborhood.

What makes this cabin unique

We had a great time making improvements and adding our personal touches to the property. We put in two new porches, a hot tub, new carpet and flooring, a new roof, new septic system, painted, and added rustic decor to create a 'cabin-in-the-woods' feel. Our boys loved the bunkhouse, Dad loves the hot tub and Mom loves the rockin' wood stove!

Cozy cabin with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

It was a cozy, affordable cabin for a weekend family getaway. The accommodations were modest but well stocked with everything we needed from linens to cookware, paper towels, and cleaning supplies. The cabin was very warm and comfortable on a winter day with the wood stove and great movie selection. The laundry room and hallway were also set up well for drying our gear after a day in the snow. The neighborhood was quiet and the proximity to Packwood was perfect.

Cute, cozy and convenient cabin

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a brand new, luxury cabin, this is not your place. If you are looking for a cozy, rustic cabin that fits in perfectly with Packwood, this IS your place. Great layout - perfect for playing games and sharing a meal. The kitchen is well equipped and the Jacuzzi made the perfect ending after a ski day at White Pass (a short 30 minute drive). Lots of elk to see, plenty of firewood for the wood burning stove and close to town. The bunkhouse in the back was an added bonus. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay here over the holiday weekend. The proximity to hikes, the great kitchen, and of course the hot tub, all made for a perfect getaway.
