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.
