Nice, efficient casita with super friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I greatly enjoyed our brief stay at the Casita in Packwood. The Andersons are wonderful hosts - friendly and accommodating. The casita is very well-appointed with all of the conveniences of home and a hot tub! Our location was also very conducive to exploring Mount Rainier National Park. The first morning we got up early to hike in the park and it was raining. Glenda was nice enough to loan us rain gear and an additional hat! We appreciated her and John's thoughtfulness. We hope to come back when we have more time to explore this part of Washington!

Lovely Casita Nestled in the Cowlitz River Valley

  • 5 of 5

The casita is great little space for a quiet weekend in the mountains. Our hosts were delightful and accommodating. We'll definitely be back for our next excursion to Mt Rainier and ski country.

Owner's Response: Eric & Nicole, Thanks so very much for the gleaming reviews both in our guestbook in the Casita and online. It was great meeting you and so glad you had the deserved break that you need from your careers. I think Jangles is ready for some doggie friends now. ☺ Thanks for leaving the Casita so clean and you left some green backs on the counter. Thanks so much for your first you generosity. Hope to see you both again. Glenda & John PS We took the for sale sign down.

Wonderful Quiet Separate Dwelling

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home away from home. After hiking and touring Mt Rainier National Park it was delightful to return to this quiet, comfortable, clean cottage. It was well equipped for cooking, the bathroom was clean and accessible, and the beds comfortable. The owners live in a separate house on the property and were there to welcome us and answer our questions. They were very helpful, available, and courteous. We enjoyed visiting with them; they helped make our stay even more enjoyable.

Great place to stay. Everything needed to enjoy our time there. Loved the hot tub after our hike.

  • 5 of 5

The location, condition and amenities were all superior. The location, though a few minutes out of the way, is quiet and the setting is pretty and peaceful. Would have enjoyed spending even more time there.

The hosts are super nice and informative. And we were able to come and go without feeling like we might be disturbing them.

It was a great place for my daughter and I, and would also be great for a family. Everything we needed for food prep in the kitchen and pantry, and a good selection of coffees for the Keurig coffee maker.

Would definitely recommend and would like to stay there again if we are in the area.

The nicest hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this clean and comfortable cottage with lots of personality. Glenda went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. She obviously puts a lot of care into the casita and it shows. Our toddler keeps asking to go back to Glenda's house!

John and Glenda are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I scheduled a week of day hikes in the Packwood area, and , at the last minute, my friend, who was going to come along, had to stay and take care of a sick parent. Right away, Glenda and John agreed to act as my backup- paying attention each day to make sure that I came "home" safely. Then, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, where I live. They were very concerned, and really supported me in my worry (all is well for my house and loved ones, but not all of my students). I got a flat tire, and John used his compressor to gave me enough air to get to the recommended tire repair place in Randall. I will come back!!
