About the Property

4 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms right by Crystal Mt. and Betsie River Sleeps 10+

Gorgeous wood-sided home with a deck, covered front porch, side porch and yard. With room for up to 8 adults and up to 12 people total with kids, our house was designed with entertaining and families in mind. It is a perfect get away for your group. There are lots of large windows for great light and lots of fresh air. The floor plan is open so groups will feel comfortable and have plenty of space. The kitchen is large with a huge granite island with stools so when we are there, that is where we all end up. The kitchen opens into a dining area with a table that seats 10 and flows into the Great Room. Beautiful hardwood floors and high ceilings throughout.
In the summer/fall there is a fire pit for your evening enjoyment. There is a charcoal barbecue next to the deck and a high-end stove inside for cooking.
The great room has a large flat screen TV w/cable, a blue ray player, Netflix, and a home theater sound system. The second living room also has a flat screen TV w/cable, blue ray player, and Net Flix.
The house has high speed Wi-Fi.
There is a washer and dryer and even a boot dryer to dry your wet boots! Queen-sized airmattress, extra blankets and lots of new plush towels. Tons of board games and there are also outdoor/yard games like bad mitton/volley ball, ladderball, and bocce ball.

Car: Necessary

You can walk or drive to a small public acess site for great fishing on the Betsie River from our house. There are many hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails close-by. We are right by Crystal Mountain Four Season Resort but offer the privacy and peace of a family home on a dead-end road.

The famous Gwen Fostick Studio is about 10 miles away in Beulah.

Spectacularly blue Crystal Lake is also in Beulah for a fun day of swimming, sunbathing, fishing and scrolling into quaint shops.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We built this house in 2013 to be able to share time with our extended family and are so happy to share it with others. We want you to enjoy our house and region as much as we do so do not hesitate to ask questions. We live in the area, so if you need anything, we want you to feel free to call us!

Why the Owner Chose Thompsonville, MI, USA:
This property is ideal as it is so close to Crystal Mt but without all the resort crowds. Plus with a maximum occupancy of 8 adults or up to 12 people including kids there is room for your whole group. Our fully appointed kitchen allows you to cook your own meals, even to come back home for lunch or a nap before heading back to the slopes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Comfortably holding 8 adults or up to 12 people including kids it is more economical than staying at the resort, yet a much more luxurious 'home' atmosphere. We built this house and its fixtures to be our own unique family vacation home. We put 25 years of building/woodworking experience into it and it shows. There is keyless entry so you don't have to keep track of or return a key. Pet friendly...towels to keep dry, water and food bowls, pet sheets. Basic pantry supplies available. Flour, sugar, spices, oils, butter, coffee plus there are always farm fresh eggs in the fridge (we have our own chickens at home). The gourmet kitchen is built for a cook, from the custom finished cabinets to the complete selection of small appliances there is everything you need to create any dish your family loves. The best part is that due to the open floor plan the cook will never be left out of the fun and everybody can help with the meals.
