About the Property
Airy 3 bedroom house amongst the trees
On a private lot with 45 acres of woods and trails less than 100 yards outside our door, our fully furnished 3 bedroom home is located on the South Shore of Crystal Lake. We are situated in a quiet area where bird watching and wildlife are at a premium. It comfortably sleeps 8 people and has 2 full baths, a loft and spacious living areas on the upper and lower floors with a fully equipped kitchen. It is beautifully finished in knotty pine trim, with all the modern conveniences. You can enjoy the beautiful 175' public beach one mile down the road and take advantage of its boat launch (Jet skis welcome!), shaded picnic area, swings for the kids, and restrooms. Gorgeous Lake Michigan beaches at Frankfort, Beulah and Elberta are less than 10 minutes away. M-22 is close by and offers access to Pointe Betsie Lighthouse, Empire, Glenn Arbor, Leland and Sleeping Bear Dunes. There are 7-8 golf courses in the area as well as hiking and biking on the Betsie Valley Trail in addition to tubing and canoeing down the Platte River. Drive the beautiful M22 for wine tasting and shopping. All in all we are in a great location for a myriad of activities and sights!

About the owner: Andi is a retired teacher and Jerry is a semi retired building contractor. Jerry designed and built the Tree House using his skills, creativity and ingenuity. We visited the area before we were married and fell in love with Crystal Lake and its environs and built our home 25 years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Frankfort, MI, USA:
We visited the area before we were married and fell in love with Frankfort. The fact that we are so close to Lake Michigan as well as Sleep Bear Dunes added to our desire to have somewhere to enjoy nature. In addition, the woods that surround our home and the quiet surroundings appealed to us along with the Crystal Lake.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The clean air and slower pace makes for a very relaxing getaway.
