Property description

The Beach House is a turn-of-the-century, twenty-room home that was used as a boarding house for young college women working in the large luxury hotels of the lumbering era in Northwestern Michigan. The charm remains with quaint living rooms, individual kitchens and bathrooms in each of the six living quarters. There are 4 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom units which are rented together, making it ideal for a family gathering!

Each place includes a flat screen TV with built in DVD, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, and electric range. There is a common picnic area and gas grills on the side lawn and a shared deck on the second floor overlooking the lake. If you have a special request, ask to see if we can accommodate it.

The house is located within feet of the east end of Crystal Lake, between the children's playground and boat launch on Beulah's town beach. The bike trail that connects Thompsonville and Frankfort is just around the corner.

There are also several restaurants and shops in this quaint community. If you are ready for more exploring, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Point Betsie, Frankfort, and Elberta Beach are all within a short drive.

Hope you enjoy your time, regardless of where you stay!

Weekly rentals are from 4:00 p.m. Saturday through 10:00 a.m. Saturday the following week.

After Memorial Day, any remaining weeks not yet rented will be available for reservation for shorter stays (2 night minimum).

Car: Recommended

The Beach House is located downtown in the Village of Beulah, making it a perfect place for the family. The youngest will play all day on the beach, giving the teenagers a little freedom to walk for lunch, and allowing the parents and grandparents to enjoy the beautiful views from the second floor deck. Gas grills and picnic tables make for a great place to congregate around meal time.

The Beach House is about 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dune climb, 10 minutes to Lake Michigan Beaches, 40 minutes to Traverse City. Several golf courses within 10 minutes for those days when you can pull yourself away from the lake. Lots of places to see and explore the beauty of Northwestern Michigan!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Frankfort, but have lived 40 miles outside of New York City for the past 25 years. I have never missed a summer in Northern Michigan, and my wife and I now bring our kids to enjoy the laid back life this area offers.

Why the Owner Chose Beulah, MI, USA:
We bought this place sight unseen! I knew the location (on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world), the town (quaint little shops and next to the Rails to Trails entrance), and the area, but hadn't seen the inside of the house. When I finally saw the place first hand, I couldn't believe what an awesome place it was. With 6 separate units, it's perfect for large groups that want to be together for vacation, but not living on top of each other. It suits our family perfectly, and I think it will suit yours as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The water quality of Crystal Lake is incredible, drawing us to Michigan each summer. This house is on the beach, but also in the middle of town! Easy access to explore Northwestern Michigan.
