Alta Crystal Resort

Resort in Crystal Mountain

This resort is popular year-round thanks to its proximity to the ski resort (winter) and Mt Rainier National Park's Sunrise Lodge Cafeteria and trailheads (summer). It's one of the area's plushest accommodations (though it's technically outside the park). Encased in 22 wooded acres and bisected by Deep Creek, it consists of 24 suites surrounding a pool and Jacuzzi.

One-bedroom suites sleep up to four and loft suites accommodate up to six. All have kitchenettes and wood stoves or fireplaces.
