About Stephanie Emtman
Hi, our names are Johnny and Stephanie and we currently live in Packwood. We have a daughter that goes to school at White Pass and we love our little town. The 3 of us are avid skiers. In the winter we ski and board White Pass and in the summer we ski the local lakes. If we are not skiing then we try to hit the trail horseback. Renting our cabin enables us to live in Packwood. We love our cabin and am sure you will have a great time in this place we love so much.
Stephanie Emtman purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Stephanie Emtman chose Packwood
We just bought this cabin last winter and have spent the summer working on fixing it up. The minute we saw it we knew it was a place that we could live in ourselves. This mountain cabin has a great front porch to sit on and seating in the back yard with a fire pit. The Country Club membership offers 3 swimming pools and a golf course. You are able to curl up in front of the fire place and play games all day or you are in the heart of a outdoor play ground.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Rock-N-Roll memorabilia, the ski chair and the G.I. Joes gives this cabin a fun twist. There is plenty to check out when you get here. Also there is a private hot tub room and weight room. (We do our best to keep the hot tub running and in good condition, However, we can not guarantee it due to the fact that we are 2 1/2 hours away from the nearest parts store.)

I hadn't rented a VRBO for a couple of years. Renting this property was very easy on the VRBO app! Check in was also very easy and the owner was responsive. The description of the amenities needs to be updated, though.
The cabin with its interesting decor served our purposes as a place to sleep while we explored Mt Rainier NP & Mt St Helen’s National Monument. It isn't fancy but was adequate for us. The information sheet in the cabin needs updating. Based on previous reviews I didn’t expect to use the hot tub but it is clear that it has been inoperable for a long time. Having a Hot Tub should be removed from the property description. While it was OK I probably wouldn’t choose it again if there were other choices.
Great for large family
I rented at the last minute but the owner/manager was prompt and responsive. Plenty of beds for family with multiple kids. Most beds are in one loft room so privacy is minimal outside the master bedroom.
Very disgusted- the cabin was dirty, we left early we were so upset.
We have stayed in many VRBO homes and have always been happy. This cabin was terrible. Everything was dirty the appliances are old and grungy the bedding is terrible the beds are saggy and unclean. The shower wouldn’t drain so we were standing in 6 inches of water at all times showering. It was advertise with a hot tub but the hot tub was empty with a puddle of water and spiders all over it. The dishes were dirty the refrigerator was dirty the floors were dirty. We brought this to the owners attention and she accused us of just trying to get money back and that she went and checked it out everything was wonderful, not true.
The cabin is a great spot to launch adventures in the nearby mountains! The location is quiet but also convenient to Backwood for groceries or a quick meal out. We were there to prepare for a trail race so only had one night to enjoy it but we'd definitely return next year!
