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.

Great house for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 5 different houses on Crystal Lake and this one is, by far, our favorite. The kids loved having their own space to hang out in the loft - and they loved that each of them had their own bed (there are 4 beds in the loft). I loved that there was a 1/2 bath up there too! The kitchen was great and it was perfect that it looked out on the beach (through a huge window) so the kids could continue playing while I cooked. Our favorite part was that the beach was right outside the front door - no roads to cross, no paths to cross, no houses to go around, and we didn't have to share it with anyone else. Being a runner, I also loved that I could hop onto Center St. (where there is minimal traffic and plenty of runners) so easily and follow it the 1 mile to the Bestie Valley Trailhead. We enjoyed walking to Dairy King and The Cherry Hut, too (although you have to be careful crossing the highway)! All of the kids have asked to rent this house again!

Beautiful, restful, peaceful, wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here as a guest of the owners and this is a wonderful cottage. It is hard to describe how wonderful it is to look out onto that view and see the crystal clear water there beckoning you for a swim. Being up North means less bugs and cool and comfortable. Plus, home is very functional, great shower, hot water a plenty and anything you'd need for a restful stay.

Beautiful home right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families (especially large families) and is updated throughout. Large glass windows in the dining and first floor bedroom allow you to look out at the beautiful lake. We rented in the winter, but would love to come back during the summer and spend our days playing in the lake and our evenings hanging out at the fire pit or playing games on the back deck.

Relaxing, beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

So many things to do in the area! Breathtaking views from the house! Even when the weather was cool and swimming in the lake wasn't an option, we still had a great time canoeing and sightseeing. Can't wait to come back next year!
