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. Our 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. Frankfort and Beulah are each about a 10 minute max drive from the cottage as well. You will not run out of sites to see, activities, or things to do when visiting Crystal Lake and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
