About the property

Chalet - 1 Bedroom/1 Bath, 400 Sq. Ft. (Sleeps 2)

Find The Mountainside Chalet nestled amongst the trees in Packwood, WA. Historic Packwood is situated between Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, surrounded by the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and at the very center of Washington's White Pass Scenic Byway (Hwy 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country.' It is 7 miles from the southeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and 19 miles from the White Pass Ski Area.

Mountainside Chalet's coziness will charm you. Drift into dreamland on a comfy mattress, with plump pillows and snugly, warm blankets.

Immediately outside is a deck w/private hot tub & outdoor table & chairs, for enjoying fresh alpine air. Behind the house is a wonderfully wooded area and Hall Creek tempting a visit, along with the neighborhood elk.

About Marilly Morton

Marilly has a passion for family, birds, photography, and traveling, visiting Nicaragua, The Netherlands, Germany & Italy.

Besides our four vacation rentals, we own 2 Subway stores (in Portland, OR).

Marilly Morton purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Marilly Morton chose Mount Rainier

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 Douglas, and Goat Rocks Wilderness areas, offering year round recreational activities. There is a constant flow of wildlife including: elk, coyotes, raccoon, fox, black bear, bald eagles, beaver and more, and .

What makes this chalet unique

I love the outdoors and it doesn't get more outdoors than this: set in tall timbers, Hall Creek singing water mysteries at the falls behind the house, private hot tub, star studded sky, passing elk, peeks of Mt. Rainier. . . what a combination! Private, cozy, comfortable and AFFORDABLE all at the same time. It's a great place for dreaming! We have 4 houses on adjacent properties, and there have been a couple occasions when all the houses were full, forcing us to rent local hotel rooms. It was more expensive in the hotel with far less amenities and privacy, so why would you want to stay anywhere else?

Great spot close to Mount Rainier

  • 5 of 5

Nice semi secluded 1 bedroom in a quiet neighborhood. House was very clean and accommodating .Its a great little spot for couples but I was traveling with a buddy so the couch worked fine as a 2nd bed. Walking distance from Packwood. Owner provided Wi-Fi and Cable (which was a blessing since AT&T doesn't work around Rainier area at all) owner has several properties and wouldn't hesitate to book with them again if I'm in the area.

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the sound of running water from a nearby creek and the hot tub was the perfect way to relax after exploring nearby parks and trails. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and we were quite cozy and comfortable inside. Hope to stay again!

Owner's Response: Dear MH & PG, Yes, Hall Creek runs year round, but in late summer not as full as during your visit. Hope you made the short walk up to see it. Mother Nature graced the 2017 Memorial Day Weekend with sunshine, burgeoning the downtown area with traffic and difficult parking. As Mountainside Chalet (MSC) is only 0.3 mile from downtown, walking was the option we chose. Delighted you enjoyed the chalet, hot tub, park and nature. Hosting you again would be a pleasure.

Cozy, cute, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Chalet was wonderful. It met our needs perfectly, the owner was accommodating and responsive to our needs.

The first night we didn't have hot water, and the owner was very quick to have the caretaker out within an hour or two to get it fixed, and even upgraded us to another cabin when the issue couldn't be resolved within our time limit. Definitely recommend, will be back.

Great weekend getaway place for two.

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin is a very comfortable place for a couple. It has a quaint and rustic feel, and the hot tub is a great place to relax aching muscles after a day of outdoor fun.

Enjoyed the property and had a great trip.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Two things we ran into:

1) Hot Tub - There was no information on how the jets turned on. It appears that they turn on automatically, but we were confused. I small note in waterproof sleeve next to controls on hot tub would be good.

2) TV reception went out Saturday night. It was not a huge deal.

Mountainside Chalet is 7 miles from Mt. Rainier National Park, and an easy day trip to Mt. St. Helens, surround by William O Douglas, Goat Rocks and Tatoosh Wilderness Areas, where you can disappear all day with an endless banquet of choices. White Pass Scenic Byway (Highway 12), 'Playground of Volcano Country', is a veritable smorgasbord of brown recreation signs where you can satisfy your activity appetite every season of the year with fishing, boating, wind surfing, hang-gliding, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, mountain bikes, geocaching, birding and much, much more.

Mountainside Chalet is just .3 of a mile east of downtown Packwood, WA en route to White Pass Ski Area, just 17-18 miles away. So embark on an adventure of natural scenic delights and wildlife so abundant, you will wonder if you are driving through the heart of a wildlife preserve. Elk appear a natural extension of the downtown landscape. Packwood is considered the dream of recreational enthusiasts, and White Pass Ski Area has great family skiing (downhill & cross country), snowshoeing and snowboard programs, terrain for all ages, and all in stunningly beautiful surroundings. In 2011, White Pass expanded by adding 767 acres, including 2 additional ski lifts, 18 new ski trails, and a mid-mountain lodge.
