Crystal Lake house description

Nestled on a bluff on the South Shore of Crystal Lake, this lakeside home has spectacular views of Crystal Lake with a peak of Sleeping Bear Dunes. Crystal Lake is beautiful with clear water and sandy bottom. Close to the quaint towns of Frankfort, Elberta and Beulah. Located in the midst of many award winning golf courses including the beautiful Arcadia Bluffs. Enjoy a bike ride on the Betsie Valley Trail or for the more adventurous, try kite boarding on Lake Michigan at Point Betsie. Follow M22 for wine tasting and shopping.

Nearby Crystal Mountain offers an award winning spa, water park & alpine slide for kids. After a day of sightseeing, relax while enjoying the views from the covered porch. You will stay cool on hot summer days with the northerly lake breezes and the shade from the hemlock trees. The great room is perfect for meals & socializing whereas the family room offers an extra comfy sofa to watch movies on rainy summer days.
