About Nathan Badgley

Hubby found this this house in his early years and loves the area. He spent his roaring 20's in Greenwater and has hiked, snowmobiled, skied, ate and played a lot in these woods. I grew up in the city but as a kid schools bussed us up to Crystal Mountain when they used to have night ski for something to do on a Friday evening. Now many, many years later, we bring our kids up and keep them outside a lot. We wanted the comforts of home and the luxuries of what you would find in a really nice hotel in one place. Your comfort is seriously our number #1 priority as we want others to enjoy the house as much as we do.

Nathan Badgley purchased this house in 1999

Why Nathan Badgley chose Washington

This house started as a tiny cabin that was crafted into one of Greenwater's most unique homes. My hubby had a vision of a rustic modern house with a vast amount of windows to allow nature indoors. The close proximity to all the beauty Mt Rainier and Crystal Mountain has to offer is a bonus. I love the fact that I can be on a trail in less than 2 minutes and walk or ride my bike for miles.

What makes this house unique

Easy in and out access of the house. Luxury bedding and high end mattresses allow for a dreamy night of sleep. The Jacuzzi steam spa is out of this world. The master bedroom can accommodate a large family equipped with a queen bed, full futon and mini loft and large walk in closet for longer stays. Heated floors, large backyard complete with fire pit, BBQ. Clean, spacious and comfortable, you won't want to leave!

Plus you can always call us day or night for anything and if you want suggestions on what to do or hike planning-we can help with that! We live less than an hour away so you can have the peace of mind that if anything goes wrong, we are close by and my hubby can fix almost anything. We want you to enjoy every minute of your vacation so we are here for you. if you have any suggestions for future amenities, let us know. We try to add new features monthly.

Close to The Snorting Elk at Crystal Mountain which houses live entertainment with Bavarian charm or relax in the Bullwheel Bar and Grill that offers scenic views of the mountain. The historic Naches Tavern offers pools tables and a dart board or relax on the couch in front of the large fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are going to Mount Rainier you are headed that way to see it. You really won't spend much time in the cabin. What you need is a comfortable and convenient location to use to launch your exploration of the mountain from.

This cabin was perfect for that. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Close to Crystal Mountain if you want to Ski and just north of Mount Rainier. (owner posted from tripadvisor)

The owners were very helpful and pleasant to work with. They helped me plan the vacation.

Crystal Rainier Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice house conveniently located near Mount Rainier National Park and many of the places that we wanted to visit. It was clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, spa, and downstairs game area (with toys and games for both adults and kids). We especially enjoyed the outdoors fire pit (although the barbeque grill was not functional). There are two bedrooms with beds and two lofts with futons. This was not ideal for our large group, which included 8 adults and 2 very young children, but was acceptable. The sleeping arrangements would be fine for a slightly smaller group or with older children. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider renting the Crystal Rainier Retreat again at some time in the future.

A remodeled home in a nice area

  • 4 of 5

The home is recently remodeled and has a nice design. It is well decorated as a rental cottage. The house has a variety of sleeping surfaces, but only 2 of those are actually beds. There is also a real mattress located in the loft above the master bedroom. The rest are futons. Our party had 6 adults, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old. Four adults slept comfortably, and 2 were left to sleep in a futon. The loft above the master bed was hard to access for the little ones, who also slept in futons. For a two night stay, this was perfect for our family.

The outside area is really very nice, but do keep in mind there is a busy road very close to the house and you can definitely hear the cars zooming by.

The description of the house and the instructions mentioned WiFi, as well as TV services which require and internet connection (such as Netflix). When we arrived the WiFi was not working and we were not able to fix it by restarting the router. We called Nate and he mentioned a recent service call where he had learned the router needed to be replaced. Having internet access was important for us, so we called Nate again the next day. He stopped by that day and replaced the router, and we had working internet the second night.

We had a very nice stay in this home. It is thoughtful, the kitchen is fully equipped, and information is easily accessible when you need it. The house was also very clean and well-maintained!

A Little "Peace" of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four LOVED our stay at Crystal Rainier Retreat. We instantly felt comfortable and at home. Many perfectly placed tiny details to discover and enjoy. Location was perfect, not too far away from necessities but far enough to feel like you are getting away from it all. A great location for a scenic drive to many of Mt Rainier’s beautiful natural sanctuaries.

Excellent, very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this place. It's not only very clean and comfortable but has a "like home" feel to it. All of the amenities you need with a space age shower/steam facility. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings as well as hiking on the many available trails in the area. Perfect place for a get away or family reunion.

High recommended!!
