About Nathan Badgley

Hubby found this this house in his early years and loves the area. He spent his roaring 20's in Greenwater and has hiked, snowmobiled, skied, ate and played a lot in these woods. I grew up in the city but as a kid schools bussed us up to Crystal Mountain when they used to have night ski for something to do on a Friday evening. Now many, many years later, we bring our kids up and keep them outside a lot. We wanted the comforts of home and the luxuries of what you would find in a really nice hotel in one place. Your comfort is seriously our number #1 priority as we want others to enjoy the house as much as we do.

Nathan Badgley purchased this house in 1999

Why Nathan Badgley chose Enumclaw

This house started as a tiny cabin that was crafted into one of Greenwater's most unique homes. My hubby had a vision of a rustic modern house with a vast amount of windows to allow nature indoors. The close proximity to all the beauty Mt Rainier and Crystal Mountain has to offer is a bonus. I love the fact that I can be on a trail in less than 2 minutes and walk or ride my bike for miles.

What makes this house unique

Easy in and out access of the house. Luxury bedding and high end mattresses allow for a dreamy night of sleep. The Jacuzzi steam spa is out of this world. The master bedroom can accommodate a large family equipped with a queen bed, full futon and mini loft and large walk in closet for longer stays. Heated floors, large backyard complete with fire pit, BBQ. Clean, spacious and comfortable, you won't want to leave!

Plus you can always call us day or night for anything and if you want suggestions on what to do or hike planning-we can help with that! We live less than an hour away so you can have the peace of mind that if anything goes wrong, we are close by and my hubby can fix almost anything. We want you to enjoy every minute of your vacation so we are here for you. if you have any suggestions for future amenities, let us know. We try to add new features monthly.

Close to The Snorting Elk at Crystal Mountain which houses live entertainment with Bavarian charm or relax in the Bullwheel Bar and Grill that offers scenic views of the mountain. The historic Naches Tavern offers pools tables and a dart board or relax on the couch in front of the large fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are going to Mount Rainier you are headed that way to see it. You really won't spend much time in the cabin. What you need is a comfortable and convenient location to use to launch your exploration of the mountain from.

This cabin was perfect for that. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Close to Crystal Mountain if you want to Ski and just north of Mount Rainier. (owner posted from tripadvisor)

The owners were very helpful and pleasant to work with. They helped me plan the vacation.

Lovely house in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for two couples. The kitchen is well equipped—we fixed dinner every night we were there. It’s a great location to get to the interesting sites in the park. I highly recommend this lovely house and hope to return.

Beautiful property and house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding in WA and needed a place to stay for four days. The cabin was the perfect solution. It allowed the family to hang out together and be comfortable and not stuck in a hotel room for four days.

Perfect setting for an Easter weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend. House is well equipped with boot dryers by the door for our wet ski boat and plenty of space to relax after a day on the mtn. Easter egg hunt was delayed by the elk in the yard but we all enjoyed watching them move through. Our second stay at the house and we will definitely stay there again
