5/5 Excellent

A fab friend and I had made the plan to visit beautiful Mount Rainier and do some hiking. We wanted to stay in an awesome place this year, our 4th annual trip to the mountain together. This cabin was everything we wanted and more. The check-in procedures were simple, the cabin spotless and well appointed. The amenities in the kitchen were some of the best I've seen in a rental with nice quality items. The bedrooms/beds were super comfy. We LOVED coming back to a soak in a private hot tub after a long day of hiking. We were saddened by the smoke but it did not stop us from having a great visit and doing some fantastic hikes. I am glad VRBO keeps your previous trips saved because I would definitely return to the Elk Run Lodge! (On a side note, we did not see the elk but heard them bugling.)

4/5 Good

Great cabin for exploring Mt. Rainier National Park!
This spacious cabin is located in the friendly mountain community of Packwood, right near the Cowlitz River, about 18 min from the entrance of Mt. Rainier National Park. It was a great location & place to relax in between our hiking / day trips into the park. Highlights include - free coffee, hot tub, elk sightings right outside & if you can find the right spot - a beautiful view of Rainier from the cabin, Apple TV & bluetooth sound system, ping pong table. The reason I did not leave a 5 star was that the extensive info packet did make us feel like we were walking on eggshells inside the cabin - anxious we would incur a fee if any human error were to happen. We didn't quite feel "at home". Example: For lost articles there is a $25 charge plus shipping for any returned items, $25 if dishes are not completed, towels will be counted, etc. However, we did feel that maybe other renters did not respect the property & that is why the rule & fee list is so detailed. I will say that although we ran into a couple issues at the cabin -the owner was very prompt, kind & respectful in responding back to my text messages and we were able to remedy the situation. Lastly, I will note that this is not a *super* dog friendly place. We decided to leave ours at home, scared we would be charged if any pet hair was found. I would request to see the pet policy before you decide on booking. You can't take your dog on the trails inside the park anyways though, so it ended up working out fine for us. Note to owner: I would recommend having the heat set higher on the hot tub as it was only at 80 degrees when we arrived & we had to wait for it to heat up overnight.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy Cabin retreat
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Packwood cabin. With three adults and two kids there was tons of extra space to accommodate more guests. The hot tub and bunk beds were huge hits with the kids! The cabin was very clean and well put together. We were slightly nervous about the reviewers complaining about the rules and checkout procedures, however all the things listed in my mind were common courtesy nothing time consuming or difficult. We definitely hope to be back!
