About the property

This Newly Renovated House Sits On the Best Side of the Best Lake in Michigan

This house has a dock and 50' of private frontage on Crystal. A private bedroom on the first floor and a second story that sleeps up to 8. A full kitchen, laundry, plus a garage and 1&1/2 baths. We completed a 85% face-lift to the house in 2013. Just outside of town and within walking distance of everything in Beulah. Nearby park and tennis court. There is plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the marvelous sunsets.

About Dan Norbeck

Grandparents bought this place in the 1950's up here from Flint Michigan. Four generations have been calling Crystal Lake our summer home away from home and now you can too.

Dan Norbeck purchased this house in 1955

Perfect location with a stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this family cottage in Beulah. It was our first time visiting here. One of the best things about it was that it is centrally located to so many great places to visit: Traverse City, Leland, and Sutton's Bay to name a few. We visited Empire Bluffs one evening before sunset and it was worth the short 15-20 minute hike.

The cottage was fully stocked, clean, and spacious. If we had a boat, that would have completed the vacation! :) We enjoyed use of the kayaks and brought a couple of our own plus 2 stand-up paddle boards. We highly recommend going both to the Cherry Hut Restaurant for fresh cherry pie and to the Cherry Bowl drive-in to catch a movie or two. The Dairy King is really good and is a short walk to get there.

Still great the 2nd time around!

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed that this house was great for a family last summer, and we stayed in it again this summer. It's still great! Despite the weather being cooler this time around, the kids had a blast... especially with the playground nearby and being able to walk to lots of places in Beulah. Plenty of room for all four of them to play in the house when it was raining and when it was finally, dry they had lots of fun building in the sand. We hope to be back again!

Went in May for Memorial day weekend. House was great; amenities were fantastic. Weather was a bit cold and the lake was wavy, but had two nice afternoons where we were able to use the kayaks. Great cottage would love to go back.

Beautiful lake

Sunsets over lake were amazing. Sleeping Bear National Park is right in your back yard. FRankfort is close by with shopping and restaurants. Very convenient.
