Year Purchased: 1957
About the owner: My mother and I own the cottage, renting it for a couple of months every summer. In the off season, my husband and I enjoy the lake, biking trips, and lots of old friends
Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
Our mother came up to Crystal Lake from St Louis in the early 1920's and we have been coming up here ever since. In 1952 my parents bought some land and built three grey log cottages. The largest, on the hill, is ours. The other two cottages are now part of Grey Logs Assoc. and owned by other people. We all love to swim, and thus visiting Crystal Lake every summer, the ultimate place to swim, was perfect We also loved the camaraderie of belonging to the CSA, for tennis lessons, theater, church choir, dinners.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I have always loved swimming in the late afternoon at Crystal Lake. It is just magnificent. You might want to rent a small boat and row out into the middle and just relax, with a picnic lunch. Sitting on the beach and reading your favorite pulp fiction, while you sip on homemade lemonade is just the very best. Our cottage is just a short drive to Frankfort for all basic supplies, and walking the long sandy beach on Lake Michigan. Within an hour, you can do all of the many adventures I have listed on my map. Please see photos, too.
