About Mark or Sharon Romero
My husband and I raised 3 children in Tacoma Washington before we moved to Packwood. We both retired from the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company. We discovered Packwood in 1995 and were in awe of the mountains surrounding the town. We are especially drawn to Mount Rainier. We moved to Packwood permanently in 2003 so we could live the quiet rural life. We were not sure how much we would enjoy it after living in the city for so many years but we love it and can’t imagine living anywhere else. We love that we are able to share our river house and the surrounding beauty with others.
Mark or Sharon Romero purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Mark or Sharon Romero chose Packwood
We purchased vacation property and spent every weekend we could in Packwood. It was close enough from our home in Tacoma that we could throw a few supplies into our car on a Friday night and within 2 hours we could be sitting on our deck watching the moon rise from behind the mountains and shed its light on the river. Packwood is perfect for us because everything we love to do is just a short distance from here. We enjoy hiking, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, and rafting down the Cowlitz River. In just about 20 minutes we can be at a trailhead in the Goat Rocks wilderness area or the Stevens canyon entrance to Mount Rainier National Park. A little farther up the road and we can be at the White Pass Ski Area. We have created some wonderful memories here. In summers past we have headed up into the national forest just minutes away and put our rafts into the river. After a 2 hour rafting trip we would get out in front of our cabin and light up the BBQ. We have backpacked into the Goat Rocks Wilderness area with our children and our nephews. I like to think the rocks we added to the Pacific Crest Trail monument at the top of a peak are still there. We have hiked trials, snow shoed at Paradise on Mount Rainier and cross-country skied at White Pass Ski Area. But one of the best memories my husband and I share is when we pulled our mattress out onto the deck on a warm summer night and stargazed until we fell asleep. My husband woke me the next morning so I could watch elk graze in front of our deck. It doesn’t get much better than that! Our cabin by the river has been a great place to share with family and friends.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin sits just yards from the Cowlitz River. Morning walks with our dog Joey have become a ritual. We love watching him climb over and under logs brought down by the river. From our great room window we can watch a variety of wildlife, which for us, has been one of the best features of our place. Our cabin is just a 10 minute drive into the town of Packwood where we can load up on supplies and stop by the local coffee shop to catch up on the latest gossip while sipping our lattes. Then walk through the town and check out our shops and thrift store. When we are finished with our day’s activities we enjoy sitting around the campfire, stargazing or playing games in front of the fireplace. Our cabin is a great place to stargaze – wide expanse with little artificial light to interfere. And of course we love the idea of sitting in the hot tub or the Master bath’s jetted tub after a strenuous day.

Peaceful and Beautiful
We had a wonderful time at this cabin - the owners were very thoughtful/accommodating and even left us a few wedding gifts. The location is so peaceful and beautiful. We highly recommend this VRBO.
Had a great weekend at the cabin on the river! Clean, stocked, and comfy!
We had an awesome time here - despite some rain.
Everything was in order; well, everything was perfect and the view is unbeatable!
Thank you Sharon and Mark!
Lovely Mountain Retreat
This was the best place we've stayed in 8 years of hiking national parks. The cabin was wonderful--spacious, well-stocked, comfortable--but the best thing was the location right on the Cowlitz River. We loved the view of the river from the windows, hot tubbing under the stars, and sitting by the firepit and watching the moon rise over the mountains. Highly recommend this place!
Would love to return
The cabin was perfect for our family. Although the listing said it had a well-stocked kitchen, we came with a few of our own supplies ... but we didn't need them. It was that well-stocked. Things were clean and tidy and the location was ideal. If it had been a rainy day, we would have enjoyed the cabin even more. As was, we were able to visit nearby Mt. Rainier and Packwood Lake and have a beautiful time.
Owners were quick to respond when we needed anything. Lovely cabin and view! I appreciated the bathroom amenities (like makeup removers) and the beach towels for the hot tub.
