Crystal Lake Retreat!

One of the few properties situated directly on the lake, on the beautiful South Shore! ... no road to cross! Spectacular, crystal, blue, water views beginning with every sunrise, and ending with beautiful sunsets in the evenings.

Close to the quaint and charming towns of Frankfort, Elberta, and Beaulah with 5-10 miles. Also within 5-10 miles of Lake Michigan with its wonderful sand dunes and harbor.

Many golf courses are close by, including award winning and beautiful Arcadia Bluffs.

Wonderful shops and restaurants are close-by. Antique shops too.

Hiking. Biking. Swimming. Sailing. Water-skiing.

Wine tasting is not too far away, along with Frankfort's new local micro-brewery.

Don't miss the nastolgic Cherry Bowl Drive-in Theatre...fun for all!

Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes is within a 45 minute drive. Crystal Mountain is also close by for winter skiing or try the Alpine slide and water park in the summer.

So many fun activities to take advantage of....

Or...just get out your favorite book... and relax on the deck, while overlooking the wonderful Crystal view!

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I started coming to Crystal Lake with my family when I was 5 years old. My husband has been coming for the past 35 years. It has become a part of our children's lives too...and their grandparents, all their cousins, aunts, and uncles too. So many great qualities of life here (accompanying so many great memories) that we decided it would be a great place to buy a cottage as an investment to share with others!

Why Frankfort, MI, USA:
We could not pass up this unique opportunity of buying this charming cottage, sitting directly on the lake!
