Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful home, set up high on the hills of Benzie County, overlooking the beautiful Crystal Lake. We have stayed in a few homes in this area and none compare to Stoneridge. The home was describe very well and accurate, home was clean and well supplied with all our needs. Denis and Anne were both so helpful in answering questions and providing guidance. I would highly recommend this property to others...perfect location for our ski trip to Crystal Mountain only 11 miles to the resort. We will be returning to the Stoneridge home!!! Thank you so much Denis and Anne!

Breathtaking View!

  • 5 of 5

This house definitely earns its 5 star rating. There was plenty of bedroom space for our group of seven and the large open kitchen/family area was a perfect set-up for evening games, drinks and conversation. The pool table is very nice quality with a smooth and level slate top. The view from the deck is simply unbelievable. We woke up early one day and, with some morning coffee on the deck, watched a small rain shower sweep over Crystal Lake. Our reward was a beautiful full rainbow. Denis was easy to work with and Anne was gracious and accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and will be planning a return visit in the future as there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in this area.

Impressive Lake Views, Spacious and Comfortable Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home is situated at the top of the highest bluff in the area and from this vantage point has commanding views of Crystal Lake and the surrounding area. The large and well cared for home has a wonderful wrap around deck that afforded wonderful Crystal Lake and nightly sunset views. The home is very open in common areas and great for family and social interactions. Great Kitchen too! Spacious bedrooms (with lots of closets) all have nice views. Large garage can accommodate bikes and gear. We loved our vacation and it was hard to say goodbye!

Great family week!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had 6 adults and 2 toddlers and had plenty of room. The house has spectacular views of Crystal Lake...amazing sunsets...and a terrific view of a thunderstorm that passed through! We also hosted several other family members for a large dinner (25 people) and had a wonderful time...they were all very impressed with our accommodations. Anne is an outstanding property manager who was very responsive to a couple of very minor issues...We very highly recommend this home for your vacation!

Wonderful house that fits the whole family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed a week in the house for our vacation. We had a great time as the house offers plenty of space for 7 adults and two kids. The view on Crystal Lake is amazing and the house is equipped with everything you need.

Great house . Fantastiv views . Very peaceful .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in February , the house is in a great position on a hill above Beulah , Michigan . You have a view over countryside and crystal lake . The house is large and has all facilities for a comfortable stay . A large seating area and kitchen on the main floor plus bedrooms . Downstairs you have a pool table and additional bedrooms . We watched wild turkey and deer from the large windows .

Traverse city is a short drive , and has many shops and a downtown area that is worth visiting . There are local food stores nearby or Meijer and Walmart are on route to Traverse city . We drove around crystal lake and up the shore of Lake Michigan and glen arbor . We also went to Frankenmuth which is a Bavarian styled town about two and half hours away . We stayed in late winter , so did have several snow days , which , being from England we found enjoyable .

We also met Anne Noah , who manages the property . And would like to say how helpful and friendly we found her .

Overall , a great holiday and would return . I would recommend .
