HOME NEAR CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, MT RAINIER AND CHINOOK PASS

Greenwater Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Spend your next vacation in a beautiful Crystal River Ranch mountain home near the Crystal mountain ski area and Mount Rainier Sunrise Lodge. In the spring, summer and fall travel across Chinook pass or White Pass over the Cascade Mountains or drive Cayuse Pass to Mt. Rainier’s Paradise Lodge. The CRR home is 65 miles, 90 minutes, from Seattle off highway 410, 10 miles from the White River/Sunrise entrance of Mt Rainier National Park and 18 miles from the Crystal Mountain ski area. In addition to riding the gondola to the 6872' Crystal Mountain Summit House for an alpine dinner, spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and a mountain top alpine adventure Crystal offers special summer events in their day lodge and base meadow.

In July through September the wild flowers on the upper elevations Mt. Rainier and Crystal are blooming. The National forest offers multiple day hike and overnight trails to crystal clear lakes and alpine meadows. From the White River campground experience high alpine weather and walk on the Inner glacier, the second most popular approach to Mt. Rainier’s summit. Or, drive to Sunrise and a Mt. Rainier National Park day lodge. The 90 mile Mount Rainer Wonderland trail circumnavigates the mountain and travels through Sunrise and the White River campground.

In the lowlands off highway 410 explore the banks of three rivers, go for a mountain bike ride , horseback ride, fish, relax or take a motorcycle trip across the Cascade Mountains on the Naches trail. Crystal River Ranch has a river walk, community center and recreation area. The cabin has a supply of outdoor furniture, a hammock and a tree swing for the kids.

Our Crystal River Ranch home accommodates a maximum of 6 people in three bedrooms, on two queen beds and two single beds. The loft bedroom is large and has its own bathroom. The second bathroom and two bedrooms are located on the main floor.

CRR is a community of part time and full time residents located at 2300’. A local herd of Elk wander the community and can be viewed on the roads, in yards and on the lawn of the community center. There are no businesses in the Ranch but a handful of stores and one dining/tavern option are two miles west in Greenwater. There are additional dining and store options east at Alta Vista and Crystal mountain or further west beyond Greenwater in Enumclaw.

The cabin is furnished with linens, towels, blankets, cutlery and all the pans you can imagine using. The only thing missing is you, your food, clothing, personal toiletries and 5 friends.

My time at the cabin is priceless. It is more than a stopping off spot to sleep and eat. It is an escape into the sights, smells, chill of the nights and outdoor exploration associated with camping in the woods. But, this cammping trip comes with hot/warm water, central heating, soft beds and warm blankets.

Tom Coan purchased this chalet in 2007

The ranch has a caretaker providing a secure environment and the home is close to our home in Seattle, Crystal saki area and Mt Rainier. We now snow ski several days in a row and cross country ski from our back door. When we aren't skiing we road and mountain bike, hike in the Nation forest and explore the forest service roads. On occasion we take a morning trip across Chinook pass for breakfast at Gold Creek or Whisky Jacks. Within 30 miles we can bike across three mountain passes or up to Sunrise on wide shoulders in slower car traffic than the other Cascade passes.

At 2300' elevation RR receives snow when snow is falling in the NW foothills. Summers are warmer than Seattle and it rains less frequent. There are walking trails running throughout the CRR community, one along the White river. Within walking distance forest service road 74 is gated and good for longer walks, very safe bike riding and cross country skiing.

Great Chalet for Families

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We stayed here for 2 nights and had a really nice and relaxing time. We have 2 small children and we were able to keep them entertained and happy both in the chalet (they loved the hot tub!) and by going to Crystal Mountain, which is only a short drive away. We got to see lots of Elk that liked to hang out on the side of the road by the house. The house was very clean, well maintained and had all the necessary amenities to make our stay very comfortable and stress free. I would definitely rent this place again and recommend it to others.

What a GREAT vacation home!

We had a holiday family get together. We consisted of 3 familes, comprised of 5 adults and 3 very young children. The home was excellent; clean, roomy enough for all of us while encouraging family 'togetherness'. Well stocked with games, movies, firewood (outdoor fire pit - which was excellent too).

Very good location, close to hiking and snow area for young children.

We recommend this home and will return in the future.

Wonderful Place

Home was exactly as described - very comfortable, very beautiful. We had two problems: 1) we wanted to stay longer, but our schedule would not allow it, and 2) I really wanted to see the elk...or a bear... All we encountered was a chatty chipmunk! We picked up a few perishable food items in Enumclaw, and everything else we needed for a nice dinner was at the house. Appreciated it so much after Seattle driving. Everything was clean, even better than pictures. We had to make one call to the owner to figure out the heating system, and he was very helpful, so we were snug and cozy. We would definitely recommend this property and hope we can return.

Our stay at the Rainier House...

Everything was exactly as described...except for the elk. I kept hoping for an elk ...or a bear...Sad to say all we saw was a friendly chipmunk. The home was comfortable, and we would recommend it to other couples in our age group...+50.
