Crystal Lake house description

Delight in this rare opportunity for seclusion on Crystal Lake. Enjoy natural wonders while staying in this unique home. The Lodge is nestled in 3 acres of woods and enjoys lake views out both the front and the rear of the house. The 200 feet of private beachfront on Crystal Lake is directly across from the lodge. Round Lake and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore adjoin the property to the north and a creek meanders through. Deer, fox, sandhill cranes, bald eagles and a bobcat are frequent visitors.

The fully furnished five bedroom/three bath home sleeps 2 - 14. The two story great room features a fieldstone wall and a gas fireplace. The loft has 2 bedrooms with a private deck and spectacular views.

New for 2014 is a 'sleeping' porch. Attached to one of the main floor bedrooms, this porch over looks Round Lake. It is an ideal location for dinner outside on a warm evening or for sleeping for the more adventurous.
The porch offers the comforts of home and the sights, sounds & smells of sleeping outdoors.

This exquisite home works well for families & groups. It can also provide a retreat for smaller groups seeking comfort and luxury. This up-north lodge is an ideal base for outdoor adventures in Sleeping Bear Dunes. It is well suited for reunions of family and friends.

The Lodge is located seven miles from the boat launch in Beulah. Dock is provided. The sandy private beach on Crystal Lake offers a safe, secluded area perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, water skiing, and sailing. There is a fire pit on the beach for bonfires. This home is a treasure and a true sanctuary, providing an escape on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.

The lodge & Crystal lake are so delightful that you likely won't want to leave, but when you do, the Benzie area has much to offer. Nearby communities of Beulah, Frankfort and Empire are unique, charming, and free of traffic and chain stores. Galleries, boutiques and fine dining restaurants abound. Recently restored Point Betsie lighthouse is a 5 mile drive or bike ride. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the Most Beautiful Place in Amercia, according to ABC's Good Morning America is immediately outside your back door at the Lodge. Frankfort is a deep water port on Lake Michigan with public boat access. There are seven outstanding golf courses within 20 minutes, and fantastic boating and fishing. Farmer's markets & fish markets provide fresh local produce, flowers, fish and meats.

This property is truly a treasure. Please contact us if you would like a tour.
