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 house in 2007

Why Tom Coan chose Enumclaw

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 house 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.

Could not have been happier

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing and not only had everything you need for a great ski weekend, but had it exactly where you'd expect it to be. I aspire to someday have a home as well organized and equipped as this one. Really enjoyed the hot tub, great kitchen, and DVD collection. I'd absolutely stay here again!

Fabulous! Best cabin I have ever rented. Which is many.

  • 5 of 5

Would stay again in an instant. Home is in a beautiful quiet and peaceful location. Home is clean and well cared for. Very comfortable beds, luxurious bedding with down comforters and pillows. Kitchen is filled with all the neccesities. Make certain you see what is stocked in the kitchen prior to shopping, bc it is full of items you would normally have to purchase in a vacation rental. It is stocked with quality kitchen dishes, utensils, and products such as zip lock bags (as an example).. Hot tub was clean, and well maintained. However, you will need to bring your sandals bc there are many pine needles on the ground. Overall, Tom is a amazing host and I hope to visit again!!

Charming, well-equipped cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the hot tub after skiing at Crystal! We accidentally left a couple of items behind and Tom went out of his way to return them to us in person. We plan to return!

A wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful, well equipped, and spotlessly clean. The beds were luxurious and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Crystal Mountain area exploring the stunning forests, majestic trees, rivers, and waterfalls. The cabin is also well placed for hiking and access to the ski slopes, where we had a bluebird day on the slopes with the most stunning scenery and views. The hot tub was nice for relaxing after skiing or hiking.

Highly recommended and we would come back for another visit.

Many thanks for sharing your property Tom.
