Charming Mountain Chalet 3 bd/2 ba, Hot Tub, Tipi and Fire Pit!

This is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend, family vacation or holiday retreat, nestled against the mountainside and 3.7 acres of wooded forest. Breathe in the fresh mountain air while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the area or indulge in the many activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer. This charming mountain chalet is located just 12 miles outside the Sunrise Entrance to Mount Rainier National Park and 20 minutes to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. Spend the day enjoying Crystal Mt. with the best view of Mt. Rainier and fine dining at the top of Crystal Mountain’s gondola. Hike the many trails around Mount Rainier and enjoy the wild flowers, waterfalls and beautiful views. Return home and relax in the hot tub or in front of the gas fireplace while watching a movie. Enjoy the beautiful outdoors while you roast marshmallows around the large stone fire pit or cook a meal on the outdoor grill. Feel free to explore or camp out in the tipi with 2 queen beds(seasonal). Sit back and watch the local herd of elk wander the community or take a short walk down to the glacial fed White River.

This cabin has the charm of a mountain chalet with all modern amenities. Log furniture and lodge decor warm the cottage and make your stay memorable. The kitchen has just been remodeled and new hardwood floors throughout! There are 2 large bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, each with skylights and huge windows.

About Tamara

I love the peaceful mountain setting and abundance of outdoor activities that this area has to offer. My family and I have enjoyed skiing, hiking and mountain biking around this area for the past 20 years. Come and explore all that this gorgeous mountain lifestyle has to offer.

Tamara purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Tamara chose Enumclaw

Watch the elk wander by and you enjoy the large hot tub, sit and warm yourself by the large fire pit on cool evenings or take a short walk to the river and relax. The Elk Crossing Chalet will be the most relaxing and exciting vacation that you'll be talking about for years! We hope to see you soon!

What makes this chalet unique

We love to have family gatherings around the fire pit, playing in the snow or hiking through the beautiful wildflowers. The Rainier Gondola at Crystal Mountain offers some of the most spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and offers wonderful dining. Take a beautiful, leisurely drive on the hundreds of miles of Forest Service Roads for spectacular views of Mt. Rainier.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you like being in the woods this is a great place to stay. The home provided everything we needed. The hiking in the area is great, and we enjoyed seeing the elk come by the cabin.

Best place to spend a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend away at Chrystal Resort. This property is actually great for 2 families to rent to 2 properties (if available) and share the wonderful big firepit under the trees. House was warm and inviting and the check out process was very reasonable. Perfect distance from ski resort and great to return to a toasty, outside hottub after a hard day of ski fun. Owner gave us a last minute 2 hour late check out, for a reasonable fee, which was really appreciated.

I wish I had seen the instructions to contact the owner a few days in advance to request the Teepee be set up. I missed that note, so we all stayed in the house. I was bummed that I missed that note :( All good, but a reminder email 3 days before with "Do you want the teepee?" would have been much appreciated. I'll be back to stay in the Teepee.

Nice Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed over Christmas 2017 and had a great time. Located in between Enumclaw and Crystal Mountain made it convenient to go shopping or skiing. The cabin was nicely kept and comfortable. The hot tub and gazebo is a really nice amenity, however it is not conveniently located right next to the house. Although we were fine with it, some folks may not like having to trudge as far through the snow and cold weather. Nice neighborhood and the local elk are very friendly. We definitely would return when we are back that way. Thank you Tamara for providing us a nice place to stay and play.

My friends annual ski trip found a great home in the Elk Crossing Chalet. The house and kitcehn is well stocked, and the hot tub was a great post ski treat. Will look to book again in the future!

Cozy place to reunite with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 friends from across the country and this was the perfect place to gather for the weekend and hang out after skiing all day. The home is cozy and has all of the amenities. We took advantage of the hot tub both nights, and enjoyed watching the elk roam in the mornings. We would definitely stay again!
