"Lovely location on Silver lake! We had never been to Northeast Michigan before, so this was the perfect first experience. The cottage is in close proximity to Traverse City, which in itself, is cool! But we were able to comfortable house 5 of us for the week. Home is well cared for with all the amenities you would need for a week away. Ken is an exemplary host and treated the kids and I like extended family! We rented the pontoon boat that is made available, it really made the experience that much more enjoyable! Highly recommend the home and the area to anyone looking for a family friendly, lake side family vacation!"

"Our 2nd time vacationing at Crystal lake and we loved this home. It's in a great location, close to Frankfort, Glenn Arbor, Empire, Traverse City and more. The house itself had so many great features including: balcony, upstairs dining/kitchen, great water frontage, beach, dock, fireplace and more.
We will be coming back!"

"Arriving on a Saturday, we put our things in the condo and noticed how clean and well maintained it was.
The view from the balcony was super (later I would have a cigar and a glass of wine relax and enjoy the view).
There are many places to dine at in town or buy groceries at Olsons and cook in the condo. A farmers market is open on Thursday's for fresh local products. The beach and park next door make it very handy for sun tanning or relaxing. The next day we went sightseeing; the railroad depot museum had lots of history about it and the stone mushroom houses from the 1880's were cute; the dunes on Lake Michigan are rustic and great for long walks. Played 9 holes at the municipal course (there are 5 others courses to choose from) had a good time.
We took a drive to Fishermans island state park and explored the beautiful trails there. This location is excellent because you can walk to town (10 min.) or drive to nearby points of interest. Oh almost forgot the sunsets are to die for at the lighthouse. The owner was kind and considerate and helpful in arranging our stay there. Excellent stay for us so I will rate our experience a 5 star."
