  • Hey there, just a heads up that during summer season in Lewis County, there might be a burn ban in place that could mean no campfires, burning or use of charcoal briquettes. So, better to check before planning any bonfires.

    Packwood winters can get pretty snowy, so make sure to gear up accordingly if you’re planning a trip during that time. While the cabin managers try their best to keep things accessible, it’s always a good idea to have winter traction tires and 4-wheel drive.

    You can have up to 5 guests max and don’t forget to mention your furry friends when you book, ’cause pets are allowed! Check-in starts at 4 pm and checkout is at 11 am. Just a friendly reminder, no parties or events, and no smoking on the premises.

    The owners can’t guarantee refunds for acts of nature like weather, road conditions, power outages or forest fires, but if anything does happen, they’ll try their best to work with you. You can also consider getting some travel insurance to help protect your trip. If anything goes wrong, just reach out to the property manager ASAP.

    To help avoid clogging the septic system, please refrain from flushing anything except toilet paper down the toilet. This includes feminine products, birth control methods, dental floss, baby wipes, paper towels, and flushable wipes.
