We wanted to get to Mount Rainier, and realized nothing is "close". But, Packwood is in a good location, and we had read about the Mountain View Lodge....they have rooms of varying size, some with kitchens, and this suited us just fine.
We were very happy with our stay and the owners are happy to greet you personally, and answer any questions you might have about the area. They were really nice, and welcoming,
They have a continental style breakfast each morning, which was a good way to start the day.
It was a nice place that worked for us, and I'd recommend it.
Though this is not specific to the lodge, there are two things I will share: (1) there really isn't much in packwood in terms of restaurants or grocery, and there also isn't much near the park...so if you can, I highly recommend bringing food with you, and (2) distances are deceiving here. The paradise entrance is relatively close to 12, but the visitors center is still a long-ish drive. And the sunrise entrance is a little farther up, but also has a bit of a drive to the vistior center. And both roads are winding, with slower speeds....so it takes a while to get there.
