MUCH more than just a ski cabin, our home was built as a primary residence. We have a large, luxurious, private home that provides the perfect blend of mountain home relaxation with all the luxury and amenities one could want. The 2500 square foot, 2002 built home boasts three downstairs bedrooms all with queen beds, sleeping six, and two full bathrooms (master bathroom has an extra-large jetted tub). The large upstairs bonus-room features a queen bed, single bed, plus lots of extra space for games, yoga, and even the TV/DVD/VCR & movies.
The gourmet, fully ready kitchen will impress any cook with its Viking gas range and double ovens. The open-floor plan with dining room (beautiful table seats 10) and living room that has soaring vaulted ceilings really encourages entertaining and connection. This light filled area has wood flooring, beautiful rugs, and exposed beams throughout giving it that warm, mountain feel. Plus the downstairs den and upstairs bonus-room offer additional opportunities for fun (or privacy). The impressive fireplace houses a wood stove which really pumps out additional heat. The home is only ten miles to the entrance of Crystal Mountain Ski Resort and Mt Rainier National Park (15 minutes to Mt Rainier's Sunrise entrance). A wide range of amenities are included: wi-fi, washer/dryer, stereo system, ping pong, foosball, fully-fenced backyard with fire pit, and board games. The White River is just a short walk away. There are walking/hiking opportunities within walking distance and many hiking/XC skiing/snowshoeing trails are just a short drive away. Our home is located in Crystal Village.

the key points:
* location is ideal for going to crystal or trekking around mt rainier
* the house itself is beautiful, well kept, and tastefully furnished
* there are three bedrooms downstairs and a large loft upstairs w two more beds.
* house has a large deck and yard, and is walking distance to the river
* the kitchen is pro-class with all the amenities youd need for prepping a fancy dinner
* exceptionally clean, from bedrooms to kitchen to living area
* wonderful classic fireplace with lots of dry wood next to it
things to be aware of:
* there's little phone coverage in that area in general (AT&T)
* there is wifi in the house, but don't expect to watch hi-def YT videos - again, this is true for the whole area, nothing to do with this property
This is an awesome property; after 3 days of volleyball competition it was great to have the peace and quiet of this mountain property to host my Chicago friends. They were blown away. It was clean, plenty of space for team members; great kitchen; comfortable beds. We enjoyed walking around the area and taking the gondola at Crystal for lunch. Great for families, single folks.
There was 6 of us. 3 couples. It was absolutely perfect for us. There was plenty of room. We never even used the loft at all. It was a beautiful weekend and we explored the mountains 3 days. Being able to come home to a relaxing cabin and fix coffee etc was wonderful! We definitely would use this cabin again. It was very close to crystal mountain and sunrise. Just a perfect location! Thanks for all the amenities etc. truly amazing! Thanks again.
The house was great and we would recommend to friends! We would have liked more snow and cable TV for the Seahawks but besides that it was great!
6 adults stayed for 3 nights. Very nicely decorated, clean and well maintained modern home. 3 bedrooms provided plenty of privacy for the 3 couples. Kitchen stocked with plenty of necessities (pots, pans, dishes, etc). Very nice appliances. Spacious living / dining area. TV viewing area in 2nd floor loft. Plenty of wood for outdoor fire pit and fireplaces.
We saw elk on two occasions very near this home, with one group totaling more than a dozen including some "youngsters".
Property is Northeast of Mt.Rainier national park. Drive time to Sunrise about 30-40 minutes, drive to Paradise about an hour and 10 minutes. Close to Crystal Mountain as well.
Plan on stocking up on groceries and other needs in Enumclaw to get the best bang for your grocery buck. Bring charcoal if you want to grill.
Our contact was very helpful with some logistical questions, and immediately responded to our questions before and during our stay. Thanks!!!!
Would definitely recommend to friends.
This property is near perfect, for a small or large family when visiting Mt. Rainier National Park or Crystal Mountain ski resort. It's a very clean and pretty property, located within about 7-10 minutes to the entrance of the park. There is no better lodging outside of the resort and personally I prefer the additional space and privacy that the house provides.
It will easily sleep 10 people in the 4 bedrooms, and a few more children on the floor if needed in the bonus room upstairs. Although keep in mind it only has 2 bathrooms. Everything was neat and in order on our arrival and the owners even left a nice note of welcome.
Good internet connection, plenty of firewood, terrific kitchen for cooking, and Elk literally outside the door. I've stayed in a lot of vacation homes and this one I would happily return to on our next trip. My only suggestion for the owners would be to replace both shower heads, the water feels like needles against the skin. The rest of the place is so wonderful, a couple of luxury shower heads would sure help relax you after a long day of hiking or skiing.
Overall, a definite two thumbs up!
Entrance to Mr. Rainier National Park is only 10 minutes away. Many hiking trails within a very short distance.
