Property description

This lovingly maintained cottage has a glorious view and private beach w/dock on Crystal Lake. The cottage is clean and spacious, sleeps 10 with parking for 3 cars. 4 bedrooms (3 on upper level, 1 on main level), 3 full baths. There is a king bed in each of the large upstairs bedrooms, 4 full size twin beds (2 sets of bunk beds) in the third (upper level) bedroom, and a king bed in the fourth (first floor) bedroom. All furniture and beds are new as of winter 2011.

Spacious living area/tv nook on the upper level landing, fully equipped kitchen with upgraded appliances, open dining and living rooms with oak floors, stunning hand placed fieldstone fireplace, excellent views of the lake from nearly every room, upper balcony. Main floor family room with 42' flat screen TV & DVD, 2 full size couches, desk area, deck outside of family room w/patio furniture and charcoal grill. Laundry room adjacent to kitchen w/washer and dryer.

The beach and amenities - a beautiful sandy beach area, fire pit and swimming dock are provided, firewood is also provided for fire pit. The cottage is located on the south shore of Crystal Lake and faces almost due north. There are no steps to the beach, it is just across the beautiful lawn. There is plenty of room to enjoy the beach, fire pit and play games.

Our property is adjacent to the Betsie Valley Trail. Biking or walking to Beulah is 1.4 miles and to Frankfort is a pleasant 8 miles. We are close to Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa, Frankfort Lighthouse & Beach, Riverside Canoe and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Come and see this and more, there is so much to enjoy. Crystal Lake will tug at your heart. There is a reason our family has had renters who have come every year for 20+ years; this is summer as it was meant to be.

If you are thinking of joining us for fall colors & fishing, October/November is an amazing time of year here! It is serene and peaceful with so much to enjoy. Things slow down just a bit and our location is ideal for lake or stream fishing. If you prefer to go out on a charter there are plenty to choose from out of Frankfort, only 8 miles away.

Winter fun is another great time to enjoy our lovely cottage! It is located only a few minutes from Crystal Mountain ski resort where the winter fun never ends. Stay with us, close to the fun at a reasonable rate.

We look forward to greeting you any time of year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: This property is part of land that has been in the family since the Civil War! We have come up every summer to Crystal Lake and eventually built our own home here on the Family Compound. Our kids have spent their summers here since they were born. It is a magical place where summer can be shared with your loved ones! Our eldest daughter just had her wedding at the lake. Well, it was actually ON the lake as the wedding took place on a platform in the water just off the beach. Maybe you saw the picture on ESPN? It was broadcast during the Little League World Series that our son was playing in for the Taney Dragons. He was transported back to the lake by special permission of the league between games as he was in his sister's wedding. When you come to stay at the Guest House, stop over any time, we are right next door!

Why the Owner Chose Beulah, MI, USA:
We live next door! This house belonged to family and when the opportunity arose we stepped up to buy it and keep it in the family. It's a great house. It was built in 1993 by a family member and had one owner until we bought it. We have totally refurnished it and had a lot of fun with upgrading the kitchen and adding fun touches. I hope you love it as much as we do...
