Nice, efficient casita with super friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I greatly enjoyed our brief stay at the Casita in Packwood. The Andersons are wonderful hosts - friendly and accommodating. The casita is very well-appointed with all of the conveniences of home and a hot tub! Our location was also very conducive to exploring Mount Rainier National Park. The first morning we got up early to hike in the park and it was raining. Glenda was nice enough to loan us rain gear and an additional hat! We appreciated her and John's thoughtfulness. We hope to come back when we have more time to explore this part of Washington!

Owner's Response: Craig and Deneen, Were celebrating Deneen's birthday and just came to get away from the city and to enjoy some quiet and restful time and with the snow was a refreshing time for them.. Very gracious couple, quiet and left the Casita spic and span. Communicated well and had wished they stayed longer so we could chat more. They are welcome back anytime. Thanks for your review, so thoughtful. Glenda and John

Very comfortable accommodations for family and very nice hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) stayed for 2 nights for ski weekend at White Pass. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were able to cook dinner and breakfast with ease. Hot tub was great after a long day of skiing. Hosts are very nice couple.
