About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Gorgeous Country Views

The Farmhouse at Betsie Valley Farms

This lovingly renovated historic farmhouse is the perfect setting for your next “up north” getaway. Located just 1 ½ miles from Crystal Mountain Resort in Thompsonville, Michigan, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath Farmhouse sleeps 6 very comfortably, and offers great indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxing, with a living room on both the first and second floors, as well as a back patio and classic front porch.
Indoors, you’ll find an open floor plan, attractive decor and a well-equipped kitchen, with views of the surrounding farmland from every window, including a vineyard, hop plot and fields of grain being grown to produce the distinctive spirits at nearby Iron Fish Distillery.
For those who love the northern Michigan outdoors, the Farmhouse offers easy access to skiing, biking, hiking, fishing and paddling your kayak or canoe down the beautiful Betsie River. And for beach and boating lovers, Crystal Lake and Lake Michigan provide great public access and sport fishing options just 20 minutes away. Quaint small towns in both Benzie and Manistee counties provide great restaurants, shopping, wine tasting, seasonal events and other amenities to enhance the vacation experience for every age group. For an out-of-the-way retreat that’s close to year-round fun, consider the Farmhouse at Betsie Valley Farms.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife Heidi and I live half time in Saginaw and the other half on the Betsie River 1/2 mile away from the farmhouse. We are both winding down from careers...I'm a small animal veterinarian and Heidi is a CPA-Consultant. We purchased the land and buildings in 2012 and spent 3 years renovating the farmhouse. The barn was completely renovated last year.

Why the Owner Chose Thompsonville, MI, USA:
Heidi and I have had a place on the Betsie River for the past 14 years and have been coming to the area for longer than that. We used Crystal Mountain a lot as we raised our two children. The farm was vacant for all the years we have been on the river and when the farm went up for sale, we purchased it with the idea to bring it back to life. We have planted a small vineyard and hop yard, and are now growing grain for the distillery down the road.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view of the surrounding land and hills is mesmerizing and sitting on the front porch is as peaceful as it gets. We are close to Crystal Mountain, hiking, biking, canoeing, swimming and boating. There are beautiful small towns to explore and many restaurants, wineries, breweries, and distilleries withing an hours drive. We are about 45 minutes into Traverse City if you need a little night life.
