About the property

Located short distance from 3 mountains - representing our beautiful Northwest

Situated in the shadow of Mt Rainier our Mountain home sleeps up to 6 guests. Two very large bedrooms and two baths with one on each floor. Our upstairs features a covered deck with gas barbecue and is wonderful in rains, sun or snow. We have parking on the side of our home for 3 vehicles and a carport for a small compact car. Enter in the lower level which features the living room area including flat screen TV with DVD library, cable and cozy woodstove for those cold winter nights. Also downstairs is a large bedroom with a Queen bed and a full size bed which can sleep up to 4 guests. Downstairs has an updated bathroom with shower and a full laundry room combined. What our guests love the most is the fully stocked, remodeled kitchen with eating bar and dining nook. It also features a large master suite with Queen Bed and sitting area with a day bed and also a pull out bed underneath. Off the master suite is an enclosed deck which will be our future game room. We currently have Bumper Pool, card table and poker chips and a seating area. Also a telescope to look at the stars at night. Next to the kitchen and utility room is another fully remodeled bath as well as another access to the deck. The outdoor backyard has a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and if you are lucky enough, you will see some elk a wandering thru the yard in the dusk to dawn hours.

Rainier Mountain Cabin is a place to have a family and or friend gathering or is a great base for all the local activities of the area. Lots of hiking trails, pool in the summer, golf and more. We have a great internet system for those needing to stay connected. Come to Volcano Country for a fun and relaxing retreat.

About DeAnne

Rich and DeAnne have always loved the outdoors. We were avid hikers in our early years and have loved nature, the fresh air and beauty of our area. We enjoy owning a home in the woods as well as a home on the ocean - getting the best of both worlds which represents Washington State well.

DeAnne purchased this chalet in 2014

Why DeAnne chose Packwood

As a child, I used to come to Packwood every summer with my family. We would hike and camp at Walupt Lake and Chambers Creek Campground. My dad and I would do over night hikes in the Goat Rocks. My husband and I decided to find the perfect mountain retreat. We loved the peace and quiet of the mountains away from the city. The views of stars at night, the fresh air. We stumbled upon this home which from the outside doesn't look like anything unusual - but walk inside and feel the ambiance of the hand hewn woodwork and the cozy cabin feel. As owners we like to fill the home with a little past history and have included old photo's of the area (DeAnne's Father worked the Fire Lookout in the early 50's) and some Historic maps. You will find our home to be clean and updated with lots of windows that look out into the treed landscape. We loved the dead end culdesac location in a nice little mountain cabin neighborhood.

ABOUT PACKWOOD AREA: Set at the base of the Tatoosh range and on the banks of the Cowlitz River, Packwood is surrounded by dramatic natural landscapes, most of which are in public ownership.

Packwood, located less then ten miles from the Ohanapecosh entrance to Mount Rainier national Park, also has a fairly direct connection to the Nisqually entrance via Skate Creek Road during the summer months. Packwood has several restaurants in its downtown core along US 12, also the town’s main street, and offers a wide range of day trips being near Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and the Gifford Pinchot national Forest in the summer. Packwood is just 20 minutes from White Pass Ski Resort for skiers during winter skiing season. Just another 20 minutes over the pass is Wine Country - Yakima for a nice little day trip of wine tasting. Lots of recreation and lots of natural beauty abounds.

What makes this chalet unique

What everyone writes about in our guest book is how they enjoy the covered deck for sitting out on or having a barbecue - even in the rain and snow. For a cozy warm up after a day of skiing, we have the Country Woodstove which heats the home nicely. The kitchen is open concept with vaulted ceilings and is fully stocked for all the comforts of home. Part of the cabin is an original 1962 one story with original wood work and some updates. In 2007, the basement with additional bedroom and bath was built new. We are the second owners and the home has been lovingly cared for over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and two kids had a great time at the cabin December 2015. Very warm and peaceful home. Deanne had everything we need to make our stay enjoyable. Even a baby gate!

The convenient location to downtown Packwood and White Pass was ideal for us.

Nice quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The home was organized, had most everything a family of 4 would need. Took the kiddos skiing at Whites pass and had a nice fire when we got back to the house, played board games and just relaxed. Some elk wandering near by too. :)

Perfect house for a group or family. Great location between the town, mountain, and awesome nature spots. Very clean, fully stocked with games, and activities for adults and kids. Owners are very responsive and helpful. It kept Christmas going a little longer. Enjoyed every aspect of this cabin!

Perfect for visiting Mount Rainier

  • 5 of 5

Clean cabin in nice neighborhood. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen to work in. Loved having breakfast and dinner on the back porch. Enjoyed the elk herd downtown each evening. Mount Rainier is seven miles up the road. Took a day trip to Mt. St. Helens. The weather was perfect. We love the Pacific Northwest. It was a great trip!

Packwood get away near Mt Rainier

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home with all the conveniences plus the near-by pool and golf course. Such a family friendly area. We also enjoyed a family hike to Silver Falls at the nearby Ohanapecosh Campground area. Very pretty falls and peaceful hike. We made a fire in the backyard firepit and roasted marshmellows. The 2 bedroom -2 bath upstair/downstairs set up of the home allowed our two families some away time from each other also. We would highly recommend this home and the area.
