Crystal Lake cottage description

This 5,500 sq. ft., 6 bedroom (plus a separate loft), 4 bath very well maintained and updated cottage has a spacious 75' of private sandy beach frontage on Crystal Lake. Boat Hoist and two waverunner hoists available upon request. If this cottage is too large for your needs, check out our other cottages. More information is available on VRBO or by clicking the website link.

The cottage, built less than 10 years ago, is clean and very spacious, easily sleeps 18, and has plenty of parking and room to spread out and enjoy your vacation.

There are three different levels to this home. The first level includes the main living area, with complete kitchen, living area, dining, laundry room, as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the these bedrooms is the master suite, which includes its own bathroom with walk in shower.

The second level consists of three additional bedrooms, two of which have a queen bed in each, another with a trundle (two twins) and couch. This level also has a separate kitchen for added capacity and a bathroom with walk in shower.

Finally, the upper level includes a loft above the upper garage which is the perfect hideaway for the kids and includes two bunk beds (queen bottom/twin top), a queen bed, its own bathroom, and large 50' LED TV. The garage also has a ping pong table for those rainy day family tournaments.

The beach and amenities - a large sandy beach area offers plenty of room to play and enjoy the water. A boat and wave runner lifts are provided (three week prior notice is required). Firewood is also provided for fire pit at no cost. Three kayaks are also provided (please bring your own life jackets) for your enjoyment.

The cottage is located on the north/northwest side of Crystal Lake and faces almost due south, therefore, when it is hot out, the prevailing winds are generally present to help keep you cool. Also because of this location, we have never had issues with mosquitoes. While the cottage is across the road from the lake, we actually have come to prefer this, as there is plenty of room to enjoy the beach, fire pit and play games.

Our property is less than one mile to the beginning of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. You can spend your entire week seeking out new and isolated beaches, trails, lakes, and dunes, all along the way to the popular dune climb attraction which is about a 20 minute drive from the cottage. Frankfort and Beulah are each about a 10 minute drive from the cottage as well.

This is your vacation and we want to do everything possible so that you will enjoy it, so, please email us or call us with any further questions or interest. HOME RENTS SUNDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Tim and Michele have three daughters, Lyndsey, Elle and Bri, and enjoy heading north as much as possible.

                  Why Crystal Lake:
                  We purchased our first cottage at Crystal Lake in 2001 after several years of vacationing in the area and enjoy all the activities and beauty of the area and now with 4 properties, want to share the beauty of the area with you and your family, and make your vacation as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Crystal Lake and the Sleeping Bear Dunes area have recently been voted one of Americas best destinations by Good Morning America. With many familites returning year after year, this alone makes it a testament to the beauty of the area. Play our kids favorite game and count license plates from different states during your vacation (their record? 47 states)
