About the property

3 bedroom house with loft, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, sleeps 6-8 people

Alpine Retreat is a newer home completed in 2007. There are 3 bedrooms, two on the main level and one upstairs with an adjoining loft, and two bathrooms. The lower level entry is a storage area for sports equipment and the BBQ grill. The main living level also includes a well-equipped kitchen, a utility room with washer and dryer, access to the house-wide deck, and a large living-dining area with vaulted ceiling, lots of windows, Cable TV, CD/VCR/DVD players, and a wood stove. Currently we do not have wifi but understand it is available at a coffee shop and the library in town. Alpine Retreat is located in a quiet wooded area within walking distance of downtown Packwood. In season, watch elk graze in the yard and surrounding woods, or walk a couple of blocks to the Cowlitz River and try catching your dinner. Whether you prefer winter or summer recreational activities, or attending the Memorial Day and Labor Day Packwood Flea Markets, Alpine Retreat is centrally located.

Wonderful Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house. Kitchen is BEAUTIFUL to use; fairly well equipped. Good living space. Upstairs bed is a bit small even for two10 yr. olds. We ended up putting an extra blow up mattress on the floor for better nights of sleeping (3rd child on the futon in the loft was fine). We LOVED the mud room for boots! The neighborhood is quiet and pretty too. Tons of cousin fun in this house! We would definitely rent this again. Skiing at White Pass is one of our favorite.

Wonderful cozy home! Everything needed was provided.

  • 5 of 5

Went to packwood for a skiing weekend.

Unfortunately the pass was closed when we arrived. Contacted the owners to see if we could check in an hour early as we had nowhere to go until the pass reopened, they were very accommodating. thank you!

The house was warm and cozy after a long day of skiing. Loved the wood burning fireplace!

Will definately plan to come back to this home.

We enjoy our stay. The house is bright and roomy. The owner/Tom is very good in responding and accommodating. I love it and highly recommend to everyone. The only unfulfilled part is that we didn't see any elks.

Excellent get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property and had everything one would need to make it cozy and inviting! We spent Thanksgiving 2016 with family and friends and would do it again here! It was clean and quiet and very easy to get to. The open floor plan was awesome and we enjoyed the windows that allowed the daylight in. Our thanks to the owners for sharing your place!
