About the property

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 skiing nearby Crystal Mt. or enjoying the best view of Mt. Rainier and lunch from the top of Crystal Mountain’s gondola. 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 new 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. One of these bedrooms has an additional double futon for the kids. Downstairs is the main living area with bathroom/laundry room and 1 bedroom. This charming cottage sleeps six adults and two children. Come explore the beautiful Cascades from this peaceful escape.

We are a pet friendly establishment and we do welcome pets for a non-refundable fee of $35 for each pet, per stay.

Because we do not charge a rental deposit, the VRBO 'Property Damage Protection' rental insurance is additional on the occupancy of five or more adults. That is an additional cost of $49.00 for $1500.00 of damage coverage. It is purchased through VRBO upon checkout and payment of your rental.

Single nights may be available at a slightly higher nightly rate. Please ask manager for details.

The Eagle's Nest is on the same property and is available to rent, http://www.vrbo.com/463359. Both units share the hot tub, tipi and fire pit.

About Gary

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.

Gary purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Gary chose Washington

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.

Son's wedding

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Texas for my son's wedding. Although we arrived late (11:00pm) Tamara met us in the driveway with a warm welcoming smile. We were tired and hungry. Knowing everything was closed Tamara offered our family some fresh eggs and bread. We gladly accepted! The cabin was perfect! Clean and well furnished. The grandbabies loved chasing the chickens around on the property. Our family enjoyed roasting hotdogs and marshmallows around the campfire. From the moment we arrived to our last night there Tamara went above and beyond!

Thank you Tamara! We are sure to return!

Cabin in the woods. with Elk, snow and a wonderful hot tub!

  • 4 of 5

Cozy, well maintained, clean family get away. I think 5 adults is the max unless there re 3 couples. Very quiet and private getaway, close to the ski resort and the hot tub felt so good after the day of skiing.

Well suited for a wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The place was very nice! Clean, lots of storage space, nice location. It was easy to work with the owner and I felt this was a good value for the dollar! 4 kids, 2 adults and a Australian Shepherd all fit nicely into the house. The home is located close to town (Greenwater about 6mi.) and the Crystal Mountain Ski resort about 30min drive) - which fit our plans perfectly.

Perfect place for winter fun!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home, and lovely in the deep snow of winter. Tamara was very helpful, and went to great lengths to have our son included in a community Christmas celebration. Close to Crystal, Mt. Rainier National Park, fun snow activities and then the hot tub to warm up!!
