Overview

About the property

home, 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.

About Tom Coan

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

Why Tom Coan chose Washington

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.

What makes this chalet unique

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.

A Crystal Mountain parking lot A reserved parking pass is provided during the ski season.

What a beautiful get-away chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Really fantastic house. However, elk wandering around, so be careful! Everything was clean. The house is well appointed with all the cooking and entertainment essentials. Easy access (as in less than an hour) to Sunrise area/White River area of Mt. Rainier. Thank you!

great house and location for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was very inviting and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, pans and also basic spices and oils. We enjoyed the spa and playing croquet on the lawn. We would definitely stay here again.

Very clean, kitchen well stocked, beautifully furnished and in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the wonderful hot tub after a day on the trails. We saw elk every day. Our daughter fell asleep in the hammock and surprised a roaming elk when she awoke. Very safe though, as the property is fenced in. Would absolutely love to return!

Comfortable, well-stocked and wonderful location,

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Tom's cabin. He was very prompt in all of his replies and had great communication throughout the process. The cabin was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the hot tub at the end of our day in Mount Ranier. The walls were well insulated so those that wanted to sleep late were not bothered by others that wanted to get up early. We will definitely stay at the cabin again if we are back in this area!
