Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We moved to West Michigan in 2001 from Phoenix, Arizona. We love Lake Michigan and have spent many summers sailing up to Northern Michigan. Over the last 4 years, we have spent our winters skiing at Crystal Mountain. We have fallen in love with Crystal Mountain, from the days spent skiing, to running into friends at the Lodge for lunch, to the community feeling of Crystal Mountain where we feel safe to let our 12 year old son take off with a friend and go skiing.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville, MI, USA:
We purchased our condo after looking for a couple of years for the right property. As soon as we walked in, we knew this was the condo for us. We wanted to be in the center of action at Crystal Mountain, and this condo fit the bill. There are countless activities available at Crystal Mountain and the surrounding area and friendly people wherever you turn. The resort offers guests everything needed to satisfy a desire for adventure, relaxation or quality family time. Crystal Mountain Resort is a four-star property, with accollades from a variety of travel reviews. The surroundings are outstanding, the architecture reflective of the 'up north' lifestyle, and the accommodations from the dining choices to the LEED certified CrystalSpa and fitness center are impeccable. The water park makes for memorable summer fun and is a short walk from our condo. There are two beautiful gold courses on the Crystal Mountain Resort property, and they both have been given a 4-star rating by Golf Digest. Staying at Crystal Mountain, we appreciate the proximity to Lake Michigan and Frankfort, both being just a 15 minute drive. The quaint village of Beulah, a 10 minute drive, is a great spot to shop, enjoy a tasty sandwich at L'Chayim Delicatessen or go for a swim in beautiful Crystal Lake. If you like mexican food, the Roadhouse Mexican Bar and Grill in Benzonia will not disappoint. Want to step back in time to the 50's? See a movie at the Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theatre where the movies are never stronger than PG-13, the playground is kid friendly and the food is always fresh and homemade!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love the upnorth feel of our condo. It is very clean, modern and close to everything that Crystal Mountain offers. The Murphy bed gives an additional comfortable sleeping option for families with children, or two small families wanting to share the space. Having a washer and dryer adds convenience and the hot tub is a nice luxery if you decide to take the plunge. The condo's location couldn't be more convenient. In summer it is a short walk to the swim complex which offers fun and challenge for kids and adults alike with a zero-depth pool and climbing wall. In winter, the ski hills are so close you can hear the excitement when you step out your door. Once you arrive, you can park your vehicle and leave it until you depart. With a full kitchen, you have the option to bring your own groceries if you choose to have meals in the condo. If that's not your style. the two restaurants on the resort property and the Betsie Bistro offering subs and pizze give excellent options for the taste-buds of the pickiest eaters.
