About Karen

Local Mercer Island family who enjoys skiing and the outdoors.

Karen purchased this house in 2012

Why Karen chose Enumclaw

We are meticulous homeowners that keep our mountain home extremely clean, well-maintained and updated. We are beginning our 2nd season offering our wonderful home to the rental market. Not your typical rental. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Extremely private 1 acre lot within the center of crystal river ranch 1 minute walk to the clubhouse - Wake up with coffee and watch the elk herd cross the driveway before skiing in a very peaceful, serene setting. Enjoy evenings in the private covered hot tub after hiking or skiing. Make a fire in the fire pit and enjoy alfresco outdoor seating on the back patio in summer. Spacious 2000 ft. house with pine tongue and groove vaulted ceilings. 2 main floor bedrooms are separate from an open upstairs master bedroom loft. 2 separate TV viewing areas. House was set-up with best possible wifi and dish for the area along with a phone landline due to poor cell service in Crystal mountain area.

Lots of privacy with a 1acre, end of culdesac location along with fully fenced and professionally landscaped back yard with grass. Large mud room/laundry room with new full size washer and dryer with plenty of space to change, dry-out and store ski clothing or hiking equipment. Large fully equipped kitchen for meal prep and cooking. We also allow the use of our large 2 car garage with garage door opener- 1 garage space available for car, ski equipment and boot storage. Enjoy not having to de-ice your vehicle in the morning. Snowplow service provided in winter

What makes this house unique

Winter Ski/Board season 2018/2019 at Crystal Mountain -

We feel so lucky to have Crystal Mountain in our backyard. Crystal is Washington's largest ski area, with 2600 acres for your skiing/boarding pleasure and over 3000 feet of vertical. Even though Crystal is close to Seattle and Tacoma, it's much more than just a locals' skiing hill. Crystal usually ends up on the top 10 lists for ski magazines' lists for best North American terrain, and it deserves the accolades.

There's great beginner terrain from the Discovery, Quicksilver and Forest Queen Express chairs. Intermediate skiers will also love the more challenging Forest Queen chairlift, as well as many runs from Chinook Express & Rainier Express. Advanced skiers will be in heaven! The Northway Chair services advanced backcountry type terrain, and the advanced Chair 6 accesses similar advanced terrain in Campbell Basin, as well as the South Backcountry.

Crystal offers 9 lifts, a surface tow plus the Mt. Rainier Gondola with some of the most reliable snowfall in the Western United States, and.... if you are there when the sun shines jaw-dropping views.

We could not have been more pleased

  • 5 of 5

Our party of three couples stayed here for two nights after a wedding in Seattle, and we wish we could have stayed longer. The house was quiet, spotless, spacious, well-furnished, and comfortable, as well as just a short distance from Mt. Rainier NP and Crystal Mountain Resort. The kitchen contained all the cookware we needed to prepare four large meals. The beds and linens ensured a good night's sleep.The living room was a great place for relaxing and chatting. In short, we were simply delighted that we were able to stay here.

Beautiful Home!!

My family of 4 really enjoyed Karen's home. The house was spacious, spotlessly clean, and well equipped for all of our needs. We already talked about renting this again next year!

  • 5 of 5

Karen was a wonderful host, she went out of her way to accommodate us. The house was very clean, well appointed and just as described. We left a couple items behind accidentally and Karen mailed them to us without having to ask! Perfect place for the trails we were going to, perfect stay!

Very enjoyable stay and very thoughtful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Karen's house. The house was very clean, cozy, and well-equipped. My friends and I went for a ski trip in Crystal Mountain, which is less than 30min drive from the house. It's an easy drive - well-paved road and the scenary along the way was gorgouse!

Karen is very responsive and patient to our questions and she's been very thoughtful to make sure everything is set up before we arrive. Knowing that we were going on a ski trip, she kept us updated with snow conditions in the mountain- we really appreciate it!

The only issue we had was that the wifi was not stable, but that's something we would expect deep in the mountain. Other than that, everything was perfect! We would love to stay here again next time we travel to Crystal Mountain.

Lovely family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for a family getaway. Stocked with everything you could possibly need this home was wonderful. Located in Crystal River Ranch only 20 minutes from the base of Crystal Mountain. We found it to be very clean and comfortable and would definitely recommend.

Car: necessary

This property resides in Crystal River Ranch across from highway 410. The 1 acre property is located in the center of the planned community at the end of a quiet and private culdesac. There is no 410 highway noise or road noise at this location. Very secluded even though you are within a planned community. The clubhouse with basketball, horseshoes, baseball diamond and community center is a 1 minute walk. We are on the regular path of the local elk herd, they walk across the property at the same time in the early morning and it is a thrill to watch while you have your morning coffee before you hit the slopes. The site sits on one fenced acre which allows privacy for outside dining and also using the new 8 person hot tub. The home is furnished with antiques, vintage finds and designer furniture. This is not your typical rental New built-ins in the laundry room and a garage will allow you to come in from a long day of skiing or hiking and quickly warm-up, get organized and relaxed. We are 25-30 minutes from crystal mountain resort skiing. Hiking trails and mountain biking trails are located right in the ranch as well as 5 minutes away. For summer renters, the north entrance to mt. rainier is also 20 minutes away w/ Sunrise entrance being 45 minutes away in the summer.
