Packwood is an outdoor wonderland, surrounded by mountains, rivers and wildlife. After a hard day of hiking, skiing, biking or just walking the river and viewing wildlife, come back to relax and unwind creekside. You can sit by the creek, roast marshmallows in the firepit, or play board games with the family. Our family spent 3 years building the cabin with wood and stone right from the land it sits on. We built it as a getaway from the fast moving pace of life in the 21st century. As such, there is no phone, cable or internet. We find our children forgetting about their devices and wanting to go down to the river to explore or challenging us to board games and puzzles. After a weekend unplugged, we are relaxed and ready to face the modern world. Our family would like to extend this wonderful experience with our guests and strive to make it the most comfortable and relaxing visit possible.
Don't worry, though, the cabin is well-equipped with all of the modern amenities for a comfortable stay. Upstairs, fall asleep to the sounds of the creek in the master bedroom's queen-sized bed, with its adjoining bath. In the morning, brew a cup of coffee in the master's coffee maker and enjoy it on the attached porch overlooking the creek. The guest bedroom across the hall has a double bed, and the bathroom next door has a tub/shower combo. Off the living room, our bunkroom has 4 bunks for the kids or daring adults. For extra guests there is also a hide-a-bed in the living room.
The main floor bathroom has a flair of originallity with a custom-built shower. The beautiful kitchen has a stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and all of the dishes, glasses and cookware you need to cook meals for 2 or 12. The dining table, crafted from a fir tree on the property, seats 6-8 comfortably and a breakfast bar adds two more seats. The custom-built river rock fireplace burns logs for cozy winter afternoons. If you are visiting in warmer weather, all doors have walk-through screens to let in summer breezes. The creek side of the cabin includes a porch, a patio with table and chairs, and a large firepit.
Whether you come for the outdoor adventure or a quiet getaway, the Creekside Cabin is a great place to spend some time. If you'd like to become closer as a family and more in tune with the natural world, this is the rental for you!
