Property Reviews 
Peaceful woodland oasis
Stacy S. from Puyallup, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016
This cabin was just what we were looking for! We stayed with 6 adults and two 9 month old infants and there was adequate spacing for all. We enjoyed all of the lovely amenities from the gas fireplace to the hot tub and outdoor seating. It was the perfect spot to relax and take a break from our busy everyday lives and just enjoy one another's company!

Meadow Wood Lodge was exactly what we wanted for a friends getaway weekend. The house is great! Six people and two dogs were quite comfortable. The completely fenced two acres was great for the dogs. It was great for the people too! We had the best time sledding in the backyard! We loved the location. We loved the house. We'll definitely be back!

A guest from New Franklin, MO recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015
we were needing a place without a lot of stairs. Everything we needed was on the bottom floor and we had it all. The hot tub was great and we just needed stress free and relaxation. Even though everything was great there was one thing, The TV was very basic and guys like to watch the big screen instead of laptop. We weren't up to brats to we went to Cashmere and got great BBQ texas style, great

David D. from Seattle, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014
Family of 4 plus Grandma and our golden retriever, had a great time, place is better than pictures shown, and we thought the pictures made it look nice. Kitchen is well stock, back covered porch was our favorite spot, had outdoor ceiling fans, expected Mosquitos and Flys, didn't see any Mosquitos and the fans keep the flys from bugging us too much. Location was great, few minutes from Plain which had gas and food, less than 30 minutes from Levenworth. Family enjoyed the outdoor play, Sound of Music. Wish we had more time to hike. Only reason we didn't give it all fives was the additional charges for extra guests, we thought with the fires we'd have to find another place to stay and my wife found some better deals after booking this place.

I've stayed here twice, once in Oct. and once in July because it fits 6, the hot tub is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the house is totally stocked with things like pots and cooking utensils. It's pretty cushy, more log mansion than log cabin.

We had a wonderful weekend at the MeadowWood Lodge. Our two large dogs joined us, and I don't think we could have found better dog-friendly accommodations for them! With a large mud room,and completely fenced in yard the pups had a blast exploring in the snow with us. Wonderfully decorated for the holidays,and very comfortable for two couples. My only complaint is that we only stayed for a few days... wish we could have stayed longer. It was an excellent relaxing weekend getaway in the snow.

This was our first time booking a rental cabin and we chose a great one! The house was newer with nice furniture and decorations. It even had a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations to make it feel like home. The house and property were in great condition. The property had a lot to offer with a beatituful view, fully fenced yard, hot tub, garage, dog run, sledding hill, fire pit and lots more. Only drawback was a smaller 2nd bathroom.

The fully fenced huge yard was such a nice treat for our dog we brought along! She loved it and we loved that the cabin was so well kept and clean, there was no evidence of any pets being there prior. The hot tub was great and the fireplace was toasty! We spent 3 nights here for thanksgiving and the kitchen had all the utensils/dishes that we could need. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin felt very roomy for 5 people, we loved that we all had enough privacy and space (some cabins we looked at had lofts with no bedroom doors). We would love to come back in the summer!
