This place was so amazing unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of snow but we had a great time with the snow we did have, and the staff was amazing. They went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed.

Date of stay: December 2018

Yes we wish there was more snow as well! So glad you had a nice time despite the lack of assistance from Mother Nature! We are expecting some big storms this week so fingers crossed!

About
Description
The perfect getaway for Mt. Rainier National Park and Crystal Mountain. Charming chalet suites & a romantic honeymoon log cabin are tucked in the national forest, just 1 mile outside the northeast entrance to Mt. More Rainier National Park & 7 miles from Crystal Mountain and its new Mt. Rainier Gondola. Soak in our hot tub and swim in our year-round heated pool (heated to 90° in the winter) -- we're Crystal and Mt. Rainier's only accommodations with both. Fireplaces, small fully equipped kitchens and renovated mountain lodge style accommodations are perfect for couples and families. Guests love our evening activities (weekends, holidays and summers) such as bonfires, movie nights, karaoke, crafts parties, and summer barbecues. Hike, sightsee, bike, ride horses, play disc golf in the summer. Ski, snowshoe and play in the snow in the winter. Open year-round. Less
