Main floor family room with TV & DVD, full size couch & 2 large arm chairs, desk area, deck outside of family room w/patio furniture and Weber Gas Grill. Laundry room adjacent to family room 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 the 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.

Owner info

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...
