About Kipp Hewitt

Crystal Mountain Resort has always been near and dear to our hearts. As children both of our families vacationed and lived in Beulah and Frankfort. We both learned to ski at Crystal and have many fond memories of family times together. In fact we were married here at the mountain! It is now our active children that have learned to ski, snowboard, and golf here and new family memories that we have made and are continuing to make that we delight in. Although we live in Traverse City we found ourselves drawn to the resort and decided that it was time to have a second home in this beautiful location. We are honored to share it and hope that you too can enjoy it as much as we do.

Perfect home for family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home for a holiday ski trip with our two grown children and our grandchildren. We feel very fortunate that we ended up at this beautiful home at Crystal Mountain. The house was decked out for the holidays and felt inviting from the moment we stepped in the door. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and offer two separate areas for groups to gather. The spacious and well organized mudroom provided a great space for all of our coats and ski gear. We were able to sleep eleven people comfortably. The kitchen wax well equipped and the large dining room table provided ample space for eating and playing games. Thank you Hewitt family for sharing your lovely home with us!

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and a 15 month old The house had top notch amenities. We accidentally thought our checkout time was noon but it was actually 11:00 am. The owner was exceptionally nice and patient while we ran around getting our stuff together. I can't think of one single thing that would have made our stay better

Great up-north retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a great vacation up north while staying at this home. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed all the home had to offer. The house was extremely clean and fully stocked (tp, paper towels, cleaning products, etc). The beds were comfortable and we easily slept 8 adults, 4 kids, and 2 babies. The 3 full bathrooms made getting up and ready very easy and convenient each morning. The kitchen was large with lots of seating indoors (huge table and 4 seat breakfast bar) and outdoors (large patio table). The outdoor bonfire pit was a great resource in the evenings and the provided ingredients for s'mores was a sweet touch! Each day we explored the area, making day trips to Glen Arbor, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and the beautiful beach in Empire. On our last day, we purchased a punch card at Crystal Mountain and visited the Alpine slide, Legacy Art park (free), and outdoor pool. Families were able to head home for meals and naps while others stayed at the pool all day. We truly enjoyed our stay here!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the Hewitt's home that we rented this summer. Very clean and well stocked with everything for a wonderful stay. Highly recommend it. The two bedrooms on the second floor are in a loft but separated with a wall. One set of bunk beds and a queen room....they are both open to the living area, so they do get some noise in morning/evening for those sleeping there. The basement/lower level was amazing! The kids hung out down there and enjoyed the air hockey and fusbol table. The beds were all very comfortable. The mud room and laundry room were great extra space for all our golf clubs, etc. The entire property was well maintained and beautifully decorated. We even received a welcome basket from the owners!! First time that has happened in our 7 years of renting houses in the area.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! Great property, great location, great owners! I would highly recommend this property!

The house was fantastic. Very clean, ample supplies, great in-home amenities. Very nice welcome basket with wine, s'more fixings and dried cherries.

The location was perfect for us. Out of mainstream Crystal Mountain Resort, yet close enough to walk to all activities. This proximity afforded us the privacy and quiet downtime we needed during the four days we were at the resort for a relatively large wedding celebration. We even had enough space (easily) to host a +20 person barbeque on Friday evening. Our guests, extended family, were actually a bit envious of our accommodations.

Communications with Kipp and his wife were seamless. Everything was very well organized and truly helped make the trip a huge success. They certainly have a beautiful home and made us feel very comfortable and welcome.

Thanks you two and we hope to return in the not to distant future!
