Great time!

Took the family and our dog for 4 days. The whole family had a great time, including our dog! We walked to the river each day (short walk) and even saw Elk at the river one evening. Everything you could ever imagine or need at a cabin was provided. Highly recommend this cabin to anyone from staying alone to a whole family! Mt Rainier National Park, Gifford Pinchot Park and many trail heads all within a short driving distance. We will definitely be going back.

nice cabin but noisy Highway traffic

The cabin was clean - that is very important to me. Jan was very sweet to leave us some welcome presents. Nice array of simple cooking spices. Plenty of space for our family. Biggest downside was the traffic noise. Forget solitude; When 18 wheeler's are going 60 MPH a few yards from the jacuzzi. I was woken up several times my harleys and trucks.

Don Smith

Owner's reply:

Yes, during the harvest season there is a lot of truck traffic on Highway 12. Unfortunately, Packwood and the cabin are nestled in a narrow valley along the Cowlitz River making it hard to escape the noise.

Being close to the highway makes Lake Creek Cabin easy to find, convenient for guests going skiing at White Pass, or touring the Park.

Even with the distraction this is still one of the most pristine and scenic areas you'll find in the Northwest.

Very lovely cabin!

Cabin is very lovely decorated and provides easy access to White Pass Ski area, where we were visiting for Spring Carnival. Owners have done a great job providing instructions on use of hot tub, etc.

We Spendt A Great Weekend There, The Cabin Was Very Nice, Clean, Just Exellent. I Really Recomend This Cabin


Puyallup, WA

Mountain Mist Chalet

After staying at Lake Creek Cabin last year, I was excited to return this season to Mountain Mist Chalet, particularly after seeing it under construction in 2010. The beautiful modern design and comfortable living space make it extremely appealing, and as before, Jan thought of everything we could possibly need or want! There is a lovely open space out front just perfect for dining or relaxation. The trees provide a wonderfully natural privacy screen, and the shaved wood chips helped keep things tidy. The campfire area would have been great except there was a burn ban on. I absolutely love the location of this property. It's far enough away from Hwy 12 to provide utter peace and quiet yet close enough to remain convenient to public amenities with easy access to Mt. Rainier. The only problem I have is in trying to decide which cabin to come back to next year! Whether LLC or MMC, you won't be disappointed!

Mt Mist Chalet at Goat Creek Packwood WA

We have stayed at Lake Creek Cabin and now at Mt Mist, both from Tall Pines. What wonderful cabins! Fully equipped, couldn't ask for anything to be added, it's comfortable, spacious, & has access to the river. Jan is a wonderful person to rent from. We would highly recommend these cabins and Tall Pines! We will be back.

Great house. Perfect for this area.

Charming house with interesting local "randle wood" detailing throughout. Well appointed and super clean. Fun. Comfortable beds-always appreciated. Note: there was no iphone coverage in the area so the Wifi in the house was a nice amenity.

Wonderful retreat

The cabin was warm and cozy. It rained all day and so we were stuck inside but it was so comfortable that we thoroughly enjoyed being stuck inside. Beautiful uniquie details all thru the cabin. Close to town if you need things. Loved our stay


Seattle, WA

Beautiful cabin

We had a great time with our whole family (two grandparents, us, and our three little boys). It is a very nice and clean, and well organized cabin. Kitchen and bathrooms are in outstanding condition as is the rest of the house and property. The hot tub functions perfectly. The riverfront is very scenic, and there is lots of rocks and sticks to play with for the kids. Apparently, the riverfront access is not directly at the cabin as I expected, but about 300 yards away. We had a wonderful time, truly the only downside is that highway 12 is directly behind the house which can be quite noisy at times (but not during the night).


Olympia, WA USA

Nice place for a vacation

Cabin was very nice and comfortable. Proximity to White Pass skiing was great! We were also amazed at the beauty of the Cowlitz river nearby.

this cabin was perfect for our family. The attention to detail and needs was outstanding. This is something we would definately do again and will recommend to our family and friends. Not too far away yet peaceful and interesting, close to the mountain and the river. Wonderfuly getaway.

Packwood's Hidden Paradise

The most unique and comfortable vacation home I have ever rented. The cabin's amenities provided a relaxing "home" after a long day of hiking some of the most scenic areas in the entire northwest. It is evident that the owners have carefully planned out every inch of this cabin to foster a true vacation experience. I highly recommend it to families and couples alike looking for the perfect getaway.
