Came for my birthday celebration and a little late season skiing. The resort is tucked into the forest surrounded by magical creeks. Our chalet room was warm and cozy and inviting, loved the warm blankets, comfy couches, crackling fire and really comfortable bed. Hot tub...More

Located right outside the northern part of the Mt. Rainier national park, this lovely place is made up of several large, multilevel chalets, nestled in the woods. It is a perfect location to go into the park, whether it is to sunrise ridge, paradise or...More

With a previous stay at another location, I wasn’t expecting too much. I was WRONG! Alta Crystal is a fantastic stay! It’s NW quaint, very clean, and friendly both in staff & guest. Quite fun making s’mores with others at the fire pit and chatting...More

Quaint and Cozy. Worked great for my 2 boys and hubs. Kitchenette is handy for snacks and small meals. Bring groceries or be prepared to eat at mountain or frozen food. 15 minutes to base of Crystal Mountain. Gorgeous views.

Thanks for recommending a grocery run for other guests. The kitchens do wonders for making a ski vacation economical if you bring your own food which is one of the things guests love about our place. Thanks so much for staying with us!

This was our first visit to Alt Crystal Resort and we loved it. It was quiet and beautiful. Our cabin was comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay again. Don't forget to visit the little store if you forgot something.

Thank Debbie J

Good Morning! Yes we are a intimate hotel in a remote location. It's what makes us special but we also don't have the ability to adjust quickly to last minute cancellations. Deposits taken are non refundable but they can... More

We have a small grocery store on-site with lots of real food, plus small quantities like eggs by the egg, butter by the stick, etc. There are a Safeway & QFC in Enumclaw and you will pass them if you're coming from Seattle... More
