My family has stayed here several times, winter and summer, in the loft chalets, the one-bedroom chalet and most recently in the Honeymoon cabin. The proximity to Mt. Rainier National Park and Crystal Mountain Ski Area is very convenient. The resort is located in a beautiful forest, by a river and is extremely peaceful. Guests can hike, snowshoe or mountain bike in the nearby forest. The heated pool is fun and clean. The staff is always very welcoming and helpful. The units are clean, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen sufficiently equipped to cook a meal. There bonfires, movie nights, scavenger hunts and other fun activities for families. This is an awesome, old-fashioned family resort.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the pool. For couples, the Honeymoon cabin is very quiet.

So glad you've come back to stay with us over the years - it's what makes what we do worthwhile - guests that we continue to see and get to know over the years. Glad you go to enjoy our Honeymoon Cabin. We just re-named it Hawthorne Cabin since many guests felt "shy" about staying there if they weren't newlyweds!

Me, my wife and my dogs had a great experience at Alta Crystal. An excellent option for those who want to enjoy Crystal Mountain region. The only missing peace is a sauna to relax after the snowboarding, but they have hot tube and pool!

Great idea on the sauna! We have a 5 year plan to add a full spa and I'll make sure there is a sauna in the design!

The Alta Crystal Resort is a gem. The setting is spectacular - set in a cedar and hemlock forest. Our 1 bedroom suite was comfortable for an adult and two teeens. We loved having a full kitchen and big fireplace. The store had all the little things you tend to forget plus plenty of snacks. The hosts are warm and accommodating and joined us at the bon fire to tell us more about the history of the property and offer tips as to where to explore (e.g., the great loop trail that leaves from behind the resort!).

All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen had all we needed to cook for ourselves. We sipped wine in front of the cozy fireplace, swam in the well heated pool while snowflakes fell from above and hiked on the trails around the resort.

I have come to Alta Crystal Resort in all seasons over the last 18 years and have always been pleased with the hospitality, beautiful surroundings, & great accommodations.

So glad that ACR continues to be a place that you want to return to. Repeat guests like you are what makes our work worthwhile. So love that you got to use the pool when it was snowing - it's magic!

Took the family up for the first 'ski day' of the season. I am in love with this cozy, beautiful, tranquil resort. We had a loft room that easily sleeps 5+ people plus 2 bathrooms. Full kitchen with all cooking utensils and dishes. Beds were divinely comfortable (I never sleep well away from home) and I slept like a baby. Fireplace in the room with wood already stocked which allowed us to get a cozy fire going immediately upon arrival. Room was very clean. Bathrooms had plenty of towels and the nice little touches were also provided (nice soaps, makeup remover cloths, shampoo, conditioner, etc.). There are even games in each room so the family can gather and have some fun. There are movies for rent and the office is fully stocked with many basics so you don't need to leave once you arrive. The POOL! Heated and a HOT TUB! All super awesome. I love Alta Vista. I can't wait to return and it was the perfect place to land for a getaway ski season or not!

So glad you and your family had a wonderful stay with us and thank you for noticing all the little details! We try hard to create a comfortable experience in the woods and it's so nice when someone notices the details!
