Staff are pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the BBQ and our room. Location is near Crystal Mtn. ski area with the gondola ride and restaurant. Short drive to scenic Sunrise and hiking trails. Would have rated four stars except for a herd of elephants in the room above us who decided to break camp at 3:30 am without any consideration to those still sleeping. If you are not a hiker it may behoove you to find other accomodations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. 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. ... more less
