Year Purchased: 1994
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 this house on the lake by special permission of the league between games as he was in his sister's wedding. We only rent this, our main house, during select times as we typically stay all summer but with traveling baseball taking over the summer for us our loss is your gain!
Why the Owner Chose Beulah, MI, USA:
It's a great house. We designed and built it in 1994 to be our dream vacation home with so many custom amenities. It has top grade furnishings and designer linens. We furnished it with love and had a lot of fun with upgrading the one-time garage to kid heaven. I hope you love it as much as we do...
