  • Best of both worlds - located on powerful Lake Michigan AND peaceful South Bar Lake

    "My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at this beach house. Just steps out the front of the house, you have breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Off your back porch, you're sitting on peaceful South Bar Lake. The number of wildlife we encountered during our stay was unbelievable! Deer, chipmunks, squirrels, beavers, ducks, birds and even a bald eagle visited daily. We enjoyed our little family of deer who came by daily to say hi - including two fawns who rested near the edge of South Bar Lake, at the bottom of the stairs leading to the private dock. We loved the proximity to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor and even took the short trip over to Traverse City one day. We rode our bikes into Glen Arbor one afternoon and took a kayak out for a tour of the lake. We walked into downtown Empire one night for ice cream at Tiffany's which was amazing! We also rode bikes to Village Inn Pizza for dinner one night and also tried out Joe's Friendly Tavern - recommend both of them. The public beach and park is a short 3-5 minute walk and is very clean and well kept. The house is charming and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We loved it and will hopefully visit again soon."

  • Exactly what we anticipated

    "We enjoyed two weeks of relaxation in this quaint little cabin. The location was perfect for our needs and the cabin truly had everything we could have anticipated that we'd need for the two weeks. The owners were very attentive and even surprised our son with Birthday Balloons upon arrival. It did get quite hot during out stay, but we never needed to turn on the portable AC unit, as the cabin is quite shaded and stayed cool. We would certainly rent this cabin again and would recommend it to our family and friends."

  • Happy travelers

    "The Crystal Manor was a good choice for our family. The village of Buelah was a nice town and a good centralized point for our daily activities. We enjoyed the Betsie Valley trail, the beach and the relaxing atmosphere of the town. The house was nice and was exactly what we expected after talking with the owner. I enjoyed my phone conversation with Guy and our exchange of e-mails kept me well informed during the entire rental process. We missed the comfort of our A/C on a few hot nights and the strength of the wi/fi could of been better. But overall our stay was enjoyable and would consider staying at the Crystal Manor next year."

  • Fantastic Week!

    "Glen Lodge worked out perfectly for our family get-together. It has been over 20 years since we stayed at the lodge and it is better than ever. The three suites made for great fun for the grand children, children and grand parents. The spacious lake front property, the dock and the swimming raft all got plenty of use during our stay. I can't say enough about the hospitality the Ricker family showed us. We will be going back for many years to come."
