About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with 60' of PRIVATE FRONTAGE on Crystal Lake

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage has 60' of PRIVATE FRONTAGE on Crystal Lake and beautiful views of the lake from nearly every room. It is two doors down from our other VRBO rental (#157460) and includes a sandy beach area area, dock and hoist for your boat. Please call or email with any questions. We take great pride in paying attention to detail to make a very relaxing vacation for your family.

Large living area on the upper level, includes kitchen, dining and living rooms with new carpet and tile, including 46' LED TV. Enjoy meals or sunning from the upper large deck w/composite decking, making it very comfortable on the bare feet. The master bedroom is also located upstairs as is a larger master bathroom.

The lower level includes two bedrooms along with double beds in each bedroom. A full bathroom is also on this level. Additional 40' LED TV in lower bedroom.

The beach and amenities - a sandy beach area with stairs to the water, boat hoist is provided, firewood is also provided for fire pit at no cost. Two kayaks are also provided.

The cottage is located on the north/northwest side of Crystal Lake and faces almost due south, therefore, when it is hot out, the prevailing winds are generally present to help keep you cool. Also because of this location, we have never had issues with mosquitoes. There are no steps to the beach, yet, the cottage is across the road from the lake. We actually prefer this, as there is more room to enjoy the beach, fire pit and play games. Please note: we call our home a cottage for a reason, and, do not want it mistaken for a luxury home as the home does not have all the amenities of a luxury home (no garage, central air, no city water, etc), but, is very well appointed and maintained. As Northern Michigan is concerned, the cottage is in excellent condition and has an excellent rental history.

The property is less than one mile to the beginning of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. You can spend your entire week seeking out new and isolated beaches, trails, lakes, and dunes, all along the way to the popular dune climb attraction which is about a 20 minute drive from the cottage.
