About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come stay within a short walking distance to the slopes of the #1 rated ski resort in the Midwest. This three bedroom, two bath tri-level home located in the Crystal Mountain Resort complex provides an outstanding location for all your year round, Northern Michigan activities. The home was built by renown ski instructor Bud Abbey, whom the Abbey Road ski run was named after. Many of the features were handcrafted by Bud including cabinets, coffee and side tables, and the entertainment center. This tri-level sleeps four adults and two children comfortably on two full beds and a daybed with pull out trundle bed underneath, with the option of sleeping more on the Hide-A-Bed Sofa in the living room and available blowup mattresses.

Amenities inside this rental include a fully equipped kitchen; cable television and DVD player in living area; gas fireplace; whirlpool jet tub; and washer and dryer. Outside features a large deck with gas grill and two car garage for storage of your ski, golf and other recreational equipment.

Crystal Mountain is a four season, family oriented resort that offers great downhill and cross-country skiing along with a terrain park for winter activities. There are two 18 hole golf courses, a water park with climbing wall, alpine slide, and bike/walking trails available in the summer. Also visit the Michigan Legacy Art Park, a sculpture park that 'combines an experience of art, nature and history'. Year round you can enjoy the spa and fitness center with indoor pool, along with resort restaurants.

Off the complex you can enjoy fishing/hunting, canoeing/kayaking, snowmobiling, wine tasting at the local wineries, or shopping and dining in the many quaint towns. Frankfort and the Lake Michigan shoreline are only 20 minutes away, or you could reach Traverse City for the Cherry Festival, or the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore in less than an hour. There is plenty to do here, but if you prefer, the quiet and laid back atmosphere of the area will help you to just sit back, unwind and relax during your vacation. Whatever you choose to do, we are sure you will enjoy your stay at Abbey Road.

Adorable home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Abbey Road! The kitchen is fully stocked and even has some of the staples you might, salt, spices. Same for the bathrooms...shampoo, soap, etc. The driveway is large to park several cars in. The location is great, within walking distance to Kinlochen if weather permits...too cold for us this year. The setup of the house is great. We had people sleeping in the lower family room so those that rose early for coffee could sit in the sitting area in the kitchen. The laundry room was nice for those sleeping in the basement to keep their belongings in. This home is so spacious. We'd rent it again if it had internet, unfortunately some in our group have to do some work while on vacation. And we didn't realize it was Bud Abbey's home we were staying in, he gave ski lessons to some of our family members! We've been coming to Crystal Mountain for 25 plus years! Thank you to Rejeanne who always answers her emails so promptly! This home was fabulous for us!

Abbey Road - Value, Location, and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Christmas at Abbey Road! Great snow at Crystal Mountain and quiet, warm evenings at the house. Family room in lower area was a great gathering area and the fireplace provided great warmth after a cold day on the slopes. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and other great things. Everything was very clean and cozy. They even had hot chocolate which was a life saver with the cold temps. The only issue we had was with the sliding glass door, we had trouble locking it but that was minor.

Great cabin backed into the woods with beautiful scenery!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the stay at Abbey Road! It was just what we needed! Super close to everything in crystal Mountain (within walking distance). We stayed with my husbands parents and his siblings and had plenty of room. We especially loved the living area in the lower level of the house. We were able to watch TV, play games and just relax. The owner supplied ample amounts of dishes, cookware and silverware in the kitchen. The bathrooms were stocked with towels and essentials. Overall we had a great stay and would recommend to any family!
