Why Auggie and Ann chose Greenwater
My wife Ann and I seem to be drawn by the mountains snow capped peaks, spectacular rivers, wildlife, world class skiing, fishing as well as its many hiking & biking trails. In October of 2012 we found ourselves buying this property we named, “Two Cabins and a Caboose” and began turning it into a park-like setting that now offers local and world travelers experiences unlike any other region. - Auggie & Ann (May, 2013)

Pool / Spa
The Caboose is amazing. Can't wait to come back.
Great place to stay close to Crystal Mountain
Stayed here during winter break with our two young boys. Skiing at Crystal Mountain only 20-30 minutes away. Boys loved the hot tub, party tower and staying in a real caboose. Very cozy and comfy. Perfect for a family of four, probably not many more than that though.
Amazing caboose in the woods
We loved staying in this cozy caboose! The kitchen met all of Chef Laura's needs and the bathroom shower was gorgeous (2 shower heads!). We had friendly cabin-renting neighbors and enjoyed nights in the hot tub after long days of skiing. The grounds were lovely -- we didn't get to spend any time at the party tower, but its location by the creek made us wish we would have. We will be back! Thanks for a great getaway!
Thoughtful spot close to Crystal and Mt Rainier with all you could need
The weather didn't cooperate but our young family had fun: s'mores, watching the river, playing in the wet field. We were cozy and enamored with this authentic caboose. Great getaway!
Best weekend ever
Beautiful cozy cabin. My husband and I got married last weekend on the beautiful water spot in front of the cabin. Perfect honeymoon spot. We look forward to coming back every year for our anniversary.
Perfect winter getaway
We absolutely loved our time in the caboose! We spend two nights here to ski and explore the greater Seattle area while celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. The caboose has everything you need for a cozy stay in the woods. All the amenities are top notch, the bed comfortable, the entertainment fun and cute. We enjoyed the tower by the river and the hot tub, which both add a special element of luxury and relaxation on many different levels. The general store across the road has everything you need in a pinch, and Enumclaw isn't too far away for everything else. We highly recommend and will stay again whenever in the area again!
