Postcards From Paradise



Nestled among the towering pines and maples of the Cowlitz River Valley guests can indulge themselves with once in a lifetime adventures or simple mountain pleasures.

Curl up in one of the many cozy seating areas around the property and lose yourself in a good book and the sounds of nature all around.


Head off to the private dock and drop a toe in the cool crystal clear waters of the Cowlitz River, which flows directly from the Cowlitz Glacier on the flanks of Mount Rainer. Or, if you are less adventurous and more patient, drop your line in the water and try your hand at some of the best sport fishing in the state. Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, small mouth Bass, Coho and Chinook salmon, and the king of the lake the Tiger Musky, are waiting to test your skill.

Glimpse the ravaged summit of Mount Saint Helens amongst the distant trees while lounging around the fire. And for the patient and lucky few watch the restless Mountain as it periodically bellows steam and dark ash onto its snowy peak.


Visit the quaint mountain towns of Mossyrock and Morton for a movie and an ice cream cone.


Moor your boat at our private dock and get out on the lake before all the other fishermen and skiers have time to launch their boats.


Glide across the evening mirror like waters in a canoe or kayak. Explore the many inlet and hidden hamlets along the shoreline or collect exotic river sculpted driftwood for a token of your stay.


Enjoy songs, stories and marshmallow smores around the open fire pit overlooking the lake.

Challenge your kids to a friendly game of horseshoes in the horseshoe pit or pick up a game of dominoes on the many picnic tables.


Bask in the sun and take an occasional dip while enjoying the large private dock. Bring your own boat and have instant access to all of the fishing, sightseeing, and water sports opportunities that Mayfield Lake offers.
