Also recommended by AAA 3-diamond, Best Places Northwest, Trip Advisor, Fodors, Frommers & more….

Come stay among 150-foot tall firs at Mt. Rainier’s Sunrise entrance. Our small resort is located on 22 acres in the national forest, with miles of hiking and biking trails from your door. Charming chalet suites and the ever so packed with PNW charm cabins. All have fireplaces, small fully equipped kitchens, satellite television and much more.

Mt. Rainier’s only lodging with both a pool and a hot tub. We know a vacation is much more than a place to stay, which is why we offer so much more. Swim in our year-round heated pool. Soak in our hot tub. Play ping pong & foosball in our recreation lodge, or volleyball and horseshoes in our recreation field. We even have activities every night during the summer and on weekends throughout the year, and many guests tell us they are the highlight of their trip — bonfires, barbecues, Mt. Rainier programs, Wilderness BINGO, karaoke & more.

Have a group? Family reunions, weddings, business meetings, retreats & more are welcome. 

We believe a vacation is much more than a place to stay, so we try to give you the amenities we like to have when we go on vacation!  In fact, we are Crystal’s only lodging with both a hot tub and pool, and all our accommodations are “preferred” — with fireplaces and so much more.

  • Disc golf course (10 minutes away)*  Because of our relatively remote location, we have limited internet bandwidth.  We have two T-1 lines that service the resort (all that’s available out here) so our internet is usually adequate for checking email, but there’s not enough bandwidth for streaming.  We have installed cell phone amplifiers in the rooms, so if you have Verizon or ATT, you should be able to use your phone to browse the internet or even use your WiFi hotspot.
