About the property

Great family vacation cottage located at Crystal Lake, a 725 acre all-sports lake with excellent fishing, swimming and boating, thirty minutes east of Greenville, Michigan.

Our cottage is located one block from the lake on a large shaded lot in a quiet area. Cottage guests enjoy their own private dock on the lake just a short walk from the cottage. For boating and fishing, a pontoon boat is available for our guests to rent for an additional fee. Inquire about rates and availability. We also offer mens and womens 21 speed bikes for rent, as well as a classic two seater Schwinn 5-speed tandem.

A shallow sandy bottom at the shore makes for great swimming for the kids. Movie theatre, restaurants and ice cream parlor are all within easy walking distance or a short drive if you prefer.

The smoke-free cottage has an enclosed sunroom and a deck for your enjoyment. This is a great place to kick back and relax!

Nice and clean. Has everything you need

We enjoyed our time at the cabin. We used it for the week as deer camp since it is bow season here in Michigan. It is the perfect place to stay.

Renewing childhood memories

  • 4 of 5

The little red cottage was a great venue for our family to meet and renew old memories. There were five adults and there was plenty of room for us all. The outdoor venues were also great, from the deck to the fire pit. The cottage was well-stocked with everything that we needed to fix meals and enjoy our leisure time. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. Scott, the owner made our stay enjoyable by being available to make sure we had everything we needed.

Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we discovered Red Cottage, it was perfect! Super clean, well stocked with everything from napkins to firewood. The lake access is sandy-bottomed, wonderful for swimmers, just a short walk from the cottage. We appreciated that it was located on a quiet back street. The sunroom was a plus,pleasant to use for games. Though we didn't rent the pontoon, we enjoyed swimming from it and just relaxing there. The owners are so congenial and helpful. Truly an outstanding property.

Perfect affordable escape

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Had several guests out to enjoy the weekend and they all awed over the affordability and the location and the perfectness! It was super clean, fully stocked with firewood, lawn chairs, kitchen everything, blankets, towels, just bring your clothes and you will be set! Dock was a short walk from cottage but beautiful. The water is very sandy with no seaweed perfect for kids to swim right off dock. We decided to not rent the pontoon but was wonderful that it was made available if we wanted to. Renter was so hospitable. Met us at cottage to show us around and make sure we had all our questions answered and we knew where Dock was. Kids loved the tree swing in the front yard. Many memories were made, thanks for an enjoyable time!

Crystal Lake is home to an age-old roller rink that is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The local stock car track has races every Saturday night weather permitting. There are several quality restaurants within 1/2 hour drive. Access to an extensive paved bike/walking trail is twenty minutes away, or you can join many others in their daily walk/bike five miles around our beautiful lake. The Crystal Box Office theatre is a classic old small-town theatre that operates Friday through Sunday, with inexpensive small town prices to boot. Or, walk to the local ice cream parlor for your favorite hand-dipped cone or sundae.
