About Crystal

My name is Crystal. I was born and raised in Northern Michigan and I truly believe there is no place like home. I enjoy traveling and exploring new things. In my free time, you can find me outdoors; side x side riding, kayaking, snowmobiling and snowboarding. I hope you enjoy Northern Michigan as much as I do. <3

Crystal purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

I feel like I am able to escape reality as I sit on the back deck and take in just a portion of the beauty that Northern Michigan has to offer. You will find yourself listening to the birds chirp and the rapid beat of hummingbirds's a place where you feel at ease and at home. Roasting smores over the campfire of a starry night and watching the moon come up over the tree line are just a few things that make this home truly feel Up North.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. Great for families - lots of space, well-equipped kitchen, swing set, and plenty of play room. Tranquil setting that was a lovely compliment to downtown Harbor Springs a short drive away. Crystal was a very attentive, accommodating host and I would definitely recommend her place to anyone looking for a relaxing Northern Michigan escape.

Perfect Ski weekend location!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place! I have a large group of friends who have been close for 15+ years. As you can imagine it is not easy to find a nice, clean, accessible and large enough place to stay but Crystals home was a dream! The house was big with just about every amenity you could possibly need and everyone truly loved it. We had a great time and would book again in a heartbeat!

Large, family friendly home in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

The home owner, Crystal, was very responsive to questions that I had about the rental and in general super helpful. We rented for a New Years Eve long weekend and family ski trip. The large, clean home worked well for our two families, especially since there were 3 full bathrooms and a half bath. Overall, we had a great experience. The only negatives were that there was no wifi and the fireplace could not be used due to insurance purposes. We would stay there again!

Amazing Host and Great Home for our Fall Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our fall color tour. It was so nice with our large group to have multiple rooms to relax in and the kids had plenty of room to run around both inside and out. Crystal was excellent to work with responsive to all our questions about local activities(We LOVED Pond hill farm's fall festival) and where to go to enjoy the best of northern MI. The "homemade treats" were a nice touch that really made us feel welcome. Highly Recommended and we will be back next year!!

3 generations of family together for the 4th

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean. There is a deer feeder and plenty of hummingbird feeders to enjoy nature . We hadn't been to MI in 30 years. It was fantastic to have the family under one roof. We enjoyed lake Michigan and Huron, drives to Mackinac island, and touch football in the yard.

Great winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great winter vacation in this large home. Lots of room for everyone and their belongings. We went to ski and snowmobile. Nubs nob was just a quick 10 min drive. We were able to ride the snowmobiles from the house to the snowmobile trails about a mile down the street. Crystal also allowed us to ride snowmobiles around the yard, which was a lot of fun for the younger kids that did not want to ride for too long. The house was clean and nicely decorated. The basement was a bit chilly to sleep in, but there were a ton of blankets available. Overall, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely consider renting this house again. Crystal was very easy to contact and answered all of our questions very quickly. Thanks so much for the awesome location!
