Why Scott Boerman chose Thompsonville
We love the atmosphere and environment at Crystal Mountain, have been coming here for decades. This house fit because it has so much space to be together with family or friends but has separate livings areas for kids, privacy, etc... We like the location in the resort, it's close enough to the core resort without being too busy. The year-round activities make it never get old - the resort is so different in the summer compared to the winter, we always looks forward to the next season. Spring and fall visits have a special feel for us because it's so quiet.

Roomy forest home with resort options
This home had the ambiance of a forested home on a golf course. The backyard was spacious with tree-covered swing and fire pit.
We used the home for its openness and many areas to spread out. The screened in porch on a cool day with its fan was very comfortable. The kitchen was used for many large family meals and the seating for dinner was great with the large kitchen table and porch set.
We spoke with this owner one time with an appliance issue and he helped us with his contact number for emergencies. Thanks for a great stay.
Second time here! Great experience again. Very clean and very accommodating for our large family. Plenty of utensils and large pans for cooking. Plenty of towels. Lots of chairs by fire pit which we all enjoyed. Love the arrangement of bedrooms and the decor of house! Thanks!!!
Golf Weekend ‘19
This is the second time we’ve stayed at this property for our Crystal Mountain golf weekend. Plenty of beds to accommodate our group of 14. Home was spotless and well stocked with everything we needed. Used the fire pit every night. Would definitely stay here again.
Everything was fine. We enjoyed the fire pit area and the BBQ.
Plenty of room and very comfortable. We like the proximity to the village, we walked to and from most days. We will rent this house again.
Laughing Moose Lodge
Great location in the heart of Crystal Mountain. Walk to the town centre in 5 minutes. Property backs onto the fairway of the golf course. Very clean and spacious unit with many bedrooms and quite a few beds. The screened in covered porch was very useful for playing cards and enjoyed the outdoors at night without dealing with mosquitos.
Love the moose !!!
This property is always in great shape.
Located at beautiful Crystal Mountain. This home is on the tenth fairway of the Betsie Valley Golf Course. There is a map included in the photos section that shows the Laughing Moose Lodge at lot 97 of the “Club” community. The base of the closet ski lift (Buck) is a 500 yard walk. When considering a rental property, be sure to determine exactly where the lot location is on a map.
Crystal Mountain is an outstanding destination resort, plus there are great local Northern Michigan attractions nearby. Nearby are fabulous beaches at Frankfort and Elberta, plus Sleeping Bear Dunes right up the road, and canoeing/kayak/raft on the nearby Betsie or Platte rivers. Scenic M22, Empire, Glen Arbor, Wine country, Leelanau, Traverse City are all 30-45 minutes away.
Golf: Crystal Mountain has 2 outstanding 18 hole courses - the Betsie Valley and Mountain Ridge courses. The Laughing Moose Lodge is located at the 150 yard marker of the par 5 tenth hole of the Betsie Valley course, so you can sit on the deck, screened porch, or yard and watch the approach shots.
Ski: Crystal Mountain has been rated the best family resort in the Midwest by Ski Magazine. It is very family friendly, yet has lots of snowboard terrain parks and a good mix of difficulty of skiing terrain.
