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.

Very Comfortable and Awesome Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I can only echo the other glowing reviews of this property. This was a grandparents/grandsons (sans parents) getaway. The cabin is beautifully decorated, spotless, spacious, and well-equipped. It's also well located whether you plan to ski at Crystal or head into Mt Rainier NP for hiking and sightseeing. The owner was most cooperative and communicates well, both by email and by the excellent instruction provided. The cabin includes a great video collection, games and puzzles, and nature books on plants, wildlife, etc.

We hope to get back on one of our future Seattle visits.

Comfortable peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights at Tom's cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The opening and closing steps were easy. When we arrived, the home was spotless and very comfortable. Tom left a personal note for us. Our two kids loved the wooded yard and the swing. We used the fire pit almost nightly. The hot tub was a great place to relax and catch the perseid meteor shower. We made some great memories here and will be back!

Beautiful location and property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a remote, woodsy feel, yet fairly close to a good-sized town and easy access to Mt. Rainier National Park and numerous other scenic and recreational locations. The "cabin" (very large for this classification was very clean, with great beds and well-stocked for with supplies for the kitchen and baths. Loved every minute we spent there!

Beautiful & comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is as the pictures show, very clean and well maintained. We very much enjoyed our stay. We made use of the kitchen, the washer/dryer, the dining room, watched a movie (there's a wide selection of DVDs to chose from) and of course, enjoyed the hot tub. There were very good instructions sent by the owner for using, opening & closing the house. Only thing I would add is note that the hot tub jets will shut off on their own after some time so don't worry if the appear not to ;) The beds were very comfortable and towels provided. The location itself is just gorgeous. We enjoyed opening up the blinds and enjoying the view from the house when we were there but it's also very close to Crystal Mountain (where you can ride a gondola to view Mt Rainier, which we really enjoyed) as well as Mt Rainier National Park. Overall, we would highly recommend this property for your getaway to the mountains.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

The residence was clean, had amenities of a hotel, and comforts of home. The reservation and payment process was smooth, and Tom was such a pleasure to communicate with. He was prompt with his emails and provided helpful information regarding the long holiday weekend. Our family genuinely enjoyed our stay and would definitely return if we decide to revisit the area. Thank you Tom!

Nice upgrades. Super clean. Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The Coans made is extremely easy to access this home (detailed email instructions for entering the house, and no need to meet with a live person to unlock the door), and offered some exceptional upgrades. The kitchen boasts stainless appliances and even a high-end Technivorm coffee brewer and Miele dishwasher. The only trick we had to navigate was figuring out how to close the dishwasher to engage it in running. It took a firm pressing (but not slamming) to lock it so it would operate (but I think that's only because the Miele system has some seriously solid seals)!

More important to us was the cleanliness. The linens were some of the cleanest we've ever seen (even the mattress protectors). Bathrooms were spotless. The home was comfortable and conveniently located for our tour of Mt. Rainier Nat'l Park.

Overall, we couldn't have been more delighted with these accommodations.
