If you like rustic cabins and outhouses, stay somewhere else. This well appointed lakeside cottage offers not only stunning views of Crystal Lake but has an upscale vibe as well. The owners (Josh & Jami) were quite responsive and accommodating helping to set the tone for perhaps the nicest experience we've ever had renting anywhere.
From the fore-mentioned and personalized guest welcome basket to the seasonal decorations around the easy-to-use wood fireplace, everything was just perfect...very impressive!!
This was our second MI Fall Color Tour and this Quaint Crystal Lake Cottage suited our needs perfectly.
Next time, we'll try and sneak in during the summer for some water fun!!
Highly recommend a stay at this lakeside gem! I took my 70 year old parents on a fall color tour for a few days and booked a two night stay at the cottage.
The owners have thought of everything you might need from a well stocked kitchen to plenty of extra towels and linens. There was firewood in the fire-pit and even charcoal and lighter fluid for the grill.
I was thrilled to have access to the kayaks and anxiously paddled around trying to take in the beauty of the colorful trees surrounding the lake. My parents were content to take in the stunning view from one of the many comfortable outdoor chairs.
We hiked my favorite Empire Bluff Trail and drove around the sleeping bear dunes area including the well preserved Glen Haven.
We had dinner at The Manitou restaurant, only a 7 minute drive from the cottage, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food as well as the atmosphere.
We look forward to returning during the summer to spend a little more time enjoying all that Platte Lake and Sleeping Bear Dunes has to offer.
