Located just north of Mount Rainier National Park and Crystal Mountain Resort, Alta Crystal Resort is a perfect fit if you are looking for a little luxury in your accommodations as you explore the trails and slopes in the area. You won't find hoards of people staged in a large resort setting; rather, Alta Crystal Resort consists of just more than 20 suites and bedrooms and all of the essentials to support them, including a heated pool and hot tub. Loft Chalet suites have two levels, a fully equipped kitchen, a fireplace, and plenty of inside entertainment options if you are there when the weather isn't cooperating. If you are traveling light, a one bedroom suite may be a better option, and if you are looking for a more memorable stay, see if you can land the Honeymoon Cabin, a hand-crafted log cabin that overlooks Deep Creek and is only available to adult parties of two.
Given its location, Alta Crystal Resort is popular throughout the year, attracting snow lovers in the winter and hikers and bikers in the summer. Prices range according to accommodation choices and season, dog-friendly suites are available, there is a small store and gift shop for last minute items, and there are a few restaurant options nearby. Be sure to make your reservations well in advance, as Alta Crystal Resort is a great option for families, couples, and just about anyone exploring this diverse area.
