Why ilmar Reinvald chose Enumclaw
We built this home at Crystal River Ranch for its remoteness from civilization, yet still being reasonably close for the necessities and luxuries of life and 20 minutes drive from base of Crystal Mountain ski area. SEATAC Airport and Tacoma are a 90 minute or less drive. For weekly grocery shopping and movies, Enumclaw is a 25 minute drive. The historic Natchez Tavern and some shops and restaurants in Greenwater are less than a 10 minute drive.
What makes this Lodge unique
The many natural wood surfaces and the fireplace create the warm ambiance in the interior of Antlers Lodge. We enjoy stepping out of the Lodge and feeling like we are away from it all. The dense trees give a feeling of privacy and security. The upper part of our property has been designated a part of an elk conservation area. Elk wander past our house on a regular basis. Coyotes, bobcats and bears have also been seen, but less often. It is fun to watch the game, you never know how many elk may wander by! A cook shack was recently built for your barbecuing pleasure. Antlers Lodge has a stand by generator which will restore electrical power in case of power outages.

lovely home in the mountains
There were four adults and three teenage boys for the weekend, and house suited us very well. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfy, and the location was great. We went to Crystal Mountain one day, and on Sunday morning we walked the community trail along the Green River.
Thank you for your kind review and for taking such good care of our house, Stacey. We are happy and grateful that you enjoyed your stay at Antlers Lodge. Please come back and visit us again!
With warmest regards, Ilmar
great place to stay
Very nice home and well taken care of.
What a beautiful location and comfortable place to make some great memories!
We had a great time. Great proximity to Mt. Rainier, but close enough to get into Enumclaw for supplies. Hope to make it back again soon.
The location was perfect - easy to get to, with great access to the park.
The cabin fit our family of 8 very well. Nice beds, bathrooms were excellent. View was beautiful. Enjoyed the quiet and solitude. We enjoyed the grill and outdoor campfire as well. I would recommend this cabin to my friends and family.
Carrie, thanks so much for posting this nice review. We are glad you enjoyed many aspects of Antlers Lodge and we hope you come and visit us again.
With warmest regards,
Attractive, comfortable home in a beautiful setting.
Seven members of our family arrived fairly late at night this August. Entrance was easy using the information provided. The place is delightful: kitchen well-stocked with dishes and utensils, excellent beds, attractive décor. Everyone in the group remarked on how nice the place is. The entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park is close, Crystal Mountain Ski Area is even closer, and the roads are easy. The owner was very helpful providing information before our arrival.
Awsame vacation time again!
This is our second time stay in this beautiful lodge.
All the equipment was functional, clean and comfortable.
When we have questions about Wifi, manager took care of it ( even we call her at night time!).
Owners are very friendly and responsible, their hospitality was wonderful.
We highly recommend to stay here!
This is a great place for viewing wildlife: elk wander through the property and may be seen frequently in the neighborhood. Bobcat, bear, raccoon and coyote in the area but shy and seldom seen. If you tire of serenity and the fresh mountain air, hop in your car and in a little over an hour, you can spend the rest of the day sightseeing in Seattle or Tacoma, visiting world class museums, shopping or dining. Full service hospital, St. Elizabeth's is located in Enumclaw., 30 minute drive.
