Manager info

Why Beulah:
Our secluded getaway has been used by our family for years as an escape to quiet and nature. We adore the village of Beulah for its crystal blue water, clean beaches, shops, and the people. Its location allows us quick access to all our favorite spots in Beulah, Frankfort, Alberta, Glen Arbor, Traverse City, Interlochen and all the lovely towns, national parks, beaches, wineries, breweries, antique shops, festivals, lighthouses, restaurants, etc. along the stunningly beautiful drive of M22. For us, the house means family, friends, music, laughter, campfires, sunsets, cooking…and the calming crystal blue view of the water from the deck. We’ve recently decided to share our BlueWater TreeHouse. We invite you to bring your family and friends to relax, play, and enjoy your stay!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located on a private hill overlooking Crystal Lake: () Central location to all our favorite places! () Gorgeous views all the time () Cool breezes coming off the lake () We love to watch the storms that occasionally dance over the lake () Swimming: Crystal Lake being only 2.5 by 8 miles (Michigan's ninth largest inland lake), is always warmer than Lake Michigan (definitely visit both!)
