"We had another fabulous vacation at The Beulah Chalet!!! The mid September dates we picked, were beautiful and had just about every meal on the large picnic table on the deck. The kitchen has been recently remodeled, and was perfect for all the family cooking. Love the new kitchen!!! The location is perfect for enjoying the great small towns that are in area. We particularly like Frankfort, with all the beach activity and the new Brewery in town. Of course, we explored Sleeping Bear Dunes and saw some of the most amazing views from the top of the Dunes, and enjoyed many great hikes. The location is perfect for whatever interests you. I am sure the trip back to Beulah Chalet will be the highlight of 2016!!! The owners are most gracious!!!"

"5 guys trying our best to catch some King salmon in the Betsie river. The house was perfect for us, the fishing not so much. It was unseasonably warm and the run was late. Plan B... Enjoy the house, weather, and the surrounding area. Being fishermen we knew to pack our other hobbies for when the bite was slow. This year we brought bikes and kayaks and man did we enjoy them.
The Betsie Valley Trail can be caught right down from "pass out" hill. You'll love flying down it (30mph+ on a bike!) but coming back up you'll know why we called it "pass out" hill. You'll either pass out or have to change your underwear. It's crazy steep, but tons of fun. We biked several days from Benzoinia to Frankfort. (20 miles round trip). The trail is nicely maintained and has great views of Crystal Lake and the Betsie River. Frankfort is a great town for people watching, shopping, or having a couple of cold brews (especially at StormCloud). They even have a bike rack! One guy in our group put 60 miles on his bike in a week.
The kayaking was equally impressive. Miles and miles of great water to explore. Easy ins and outs close to the house. It's hard to describe how quiet nature can be. It's really the reason we get away. Sure it's great to catch fish but standing immersed in clean cool water really recharges the batteries and erases stress. I highly recommend it.
We grilled everyday, had campfires, sat outside, and enjoyed the last remaining days of summer. The house was fantastic. All the comforts of home and more set inside the laid back, picturesque town, of Michigan's great up north.
Next year we'll be adding the boat and golf clubs and renting for a month (Just kidding ladies, or are we? :)"

"We have rented this home for several years and just love it! It has a fantastic location, plenty of room for my entire family, dock, and nice sandy beach for kids to play on. We always catch a lot of fish in Crystal Lake and enjoy the fire pit that is right on the sandy beach. They also furnish the linens, beach towels, and the owners always treat us like family. The Betsie River Bike Path goes right in front of the cottage so we always enjoy riding that path. The owners actually saved our fishing boat after one of the worst ever thunderstorms hit the area in August. They risked their life's bailing out the boat, getting it unstuck from a neighbors dock, and reattaching it to the mooring lines during a terrific thunderstorm. We thank them so much for their kindness, generosity, and for saving our fishing boat. We plan on renting this beautiful cottage again."
