Beulah family fun

This is such a fun and comfortable house, and the owners have furnished it so nicely, it felt more like staying with friends than a rental. The style and floor plan are very unique, kind of euro/retro/chic, lots of decks, very private and quiet setting. We are a family group of 8 adults and 8 teens, and stayed for a week in mid-July 2012. There are lots of convenient closets and shelves, enough bedding, pillows, towels for several houses, and the kitchen/pantry supplies defy adequate praise. We left the windows open on the upper floors all day and night and enjoyed the fresh air.
Great location, we went to Manistee, Traverse City, Frankfort and took multiple trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, all 30 minute drives or less. Beulah, a cool little town, and the city beach on Crystal Lake are 5 minutes down the road. There is a boat rental marina on Crystal Lake about 2 miles from the house. Benzonia and Honor are about 6 or 7 miles away, groceries and restaurants are convenient in all these small towns. We rode bikes from Beulah to Lake Michigan at Frankfort and back on the trail, which runs along Crystal Lake and through the woods.
The VRBO listing and photos are accurate, the house is very clean and well-maintained. Chris sent a nice set of instructions before we left home and we had no problems whatsoever. We watched deer in the meadow daily. A black squirrel and several entertaining crows apparently live nearby. We cooked smores over a campfire in the backyard, the firewood and fire ring were ready for use. In short, our family had a fabulous time at the Beulah Chalet. Some teens might think they are a little old to appreciate the bunk beds upstairs, but ours had so much fun talking and playing games late into the night, there were no complaints. We all agreed that we would love to stay here again.
