Greenwater chalet description

The Elk Crossing Chalet is the perfect getaway for a romantic weekend or a family vacation, nestled amongst 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 13 miles outside the Sunrise Entrance to Mount Rainier National Park and 20 minutes to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. Spend the day hiking nearby trails filled with wildflowers, sightseeing at Mt. Rainier National Park or enjoying the best view of Mt. Rainier and a sunset dinner 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. 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. If more room is needed, this property also has a separate 1 bd/1ba, loft cabin over the garage, sleeping 4 adults or two adults and two children, to rent in combination or separately from the main cabin. Please ask for more details about The Eagle's Nest. Come explore the beautiful Cascades from this peaceful escape. Book your Fall dates soon as they will fill up fast! I'm sorry, but we are totally booked from December 1, 2014 until May 1, 2015, for the winter skiing season.

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.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: 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.

                  Why Greenwater:
                  Watch the elk wander by, sit and warm yourself by the large firepit on cool evenings or take a short walk to the river and relax.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  We love to have family gatherings around the firepit, playing in the snow or hiking amongst the beautiful wildflowers. The Rainier Gondola at Crystal Mountain offers some of the most spectacular views of Mt. Rainier and offers wonderful dinner dining during the summer months.
