Rustic cabin built in the 60s in quaint Mayfield Village. Mayfield Village is about 15 minutes east of I-5 on Highway 12 (Exit 68) in Lewis County, Washington--90 minutes from either Portland or Seattle, 2 hours from Yakima. The village has a marina and resort on Mayfield Lake, which is a 13-mile-long lake with excellent fishing and water sports as well as beautiful wooded shores and shallow areas that can only be reached by boat for wading and sunbathing. Our efficient cabin has a full kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 bath; central room divides into 2 separate sleeping areas with futons, so can accommodate 6. Large covered deck off back of cabin, small private deck off bedroom. Minutes' walk to marina. Use of our membership to marina included in rental. Bring your boat and use the slip, play at the beach, attend the Saturday Night Dance (during the summer). Fishing, waterskiing, kayaking are popular on this large lake. Marina has canoes and kayaks, a pontoon boat for rent, as well as a store and restaurant with wine and beer.
Above the friendly little village are miles of trails in state forest for hiking and ATVs.
For year-round recreation, Mt. Ranier, Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Mt. St. Helens are within 1 hour's drive for beautiful hiking, camping, cross-country skiing and exploring.
White Pass ski resort (pictured below) is a 90-minute easy drive for family-friendly skiing during a winter vacation.
Our cabin is not fancy, does not have a lake view, but it is very functional and full of great family memories. We hope you can make some of your own here.
Our trip at your place was really fun. The cabin was really enjoyable and we felt at home immediately. We went canoeing both days and caught some trout. I even managed to tip the canoe over out in the middle of the lake...what a fridgid experience that was! Anyways...we barbequed and relaxed and had fun and did see the waterfall.
Thank You for the experience and we will recommed that other people choose your cabin and friendliness when they heading that direction.
Any time of the year, Lewis County has beautiful mountains and rivers to explore. Mt. Ranier National Forest, Mt.
