About the Property

3+ bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1,011 sq. ft. (maximum occupancy 6)

Remodeled in 2011 (new: double-paned, vinyl windows, roof, siding, paint and propane 'wood' stove). Four sleeping areas - (comfortable) beds for six. FREE Wifi, AC, iron & board, TV & DVD and charcoal BBQ. The hot tub completes any day in the woods or on the slopes. The well-appointed kitchen makes 'eating in' easy and the washer and dryer keeps everything clean and dry. Bugling Elk Bungalow is 7 miles from the southeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park, 19 miles to White Pass Ski area, and 1/3 of a mile from downtown Packwood.

Packwood and the Bugling Elk Bungalow are situated between Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, and surrounded by Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Leave the fast pace and hassles behind, and embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wild life preserve. Elk even appear a natural extension of the downtown Packwood landscape.

Getting to Packwood, on Hwy 12, Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway, 'Playground of Volcano Country' (received state and federal designation) is half the fun!

Historic Packwood, WA, is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass ski area (17 miles beyond Packwood) has 1,510 vertical feet, ski lifts, great family skiing/ snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings. They also offer lessons and rentals for classical cross-country, skating, or snowshoeing.

In December 2010, White Pass re-opened following a $9 million expansion project that opens 767 acres to riding, two new chairlifts, 13 new trails and a new day lodge. 'Paradise Basin's opening is the biggest new thing in years for Cascade skiers and snowboarders . . . turning White Pass into a midsize Northwest ski area . . . Even though its ski terrain has doubled, White Pass retains the feeling of a small resort.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Fred, as a teacher, is a life time learner. His passion is family, reading and sports. Marilly has a passion for family, birds, photography and traveling, visiting Nicaragua, The Netherlands, Germany & Italy. We both visited Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Switzerland, Aruba, Vancouver Island & Victoria BC, and Fred managed a sailing trip to Belize with our oldest son. To keep the international flavor in our home, we hosted exchange students including: two German, two Japanese, two Koreans, and one Colombian. Besides our four vacation rentals, we own 2 Subway stores (in Portland, OR).

Why the Owner Chose Packwood, WA, USA:
We love the mountains, and Packwood is very like Switzerland, only the mountains are smaller and farther apart. It is in the center of Gifford Pinchot Nat'l Forest, 7 miles from the southern entrance to Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park, and surround by Tatoosh, William O Douglass, and Goat Rocks Wilderness areas. There is a constant flow of wildlife including: elk, coyotes, raccoon, fox, black bear, bald eagles, beaver and more, and year round recreational activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We spent every weekend for almost a year in Hall Creek Cabin while we built the Rainier View Lodge. We really made it our home away from home. I enjoyed the hot tub under a star studded sky, the song of Hall Creek, wood smoke on the wind and the plethora of passing elk . . . what a combination! It's a great place to dream and build!
