Why Scott Boerman chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

We love the atmosphere and environment at Crystal Mountain, have been coming here for decades. This house fit because it has so much space to be together with family or friends but has separate livings areas for kids, privacy, etc... We like the location in the resort, it's close enough to the core resort without being too busy. The year-round activities make it never get old - the resort is so different in the summer compared to the winter, we always looks forward to the next season. Spring and fall visits have a special feel for us because it's so quiet.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this house that caught our attention are the size/space and location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have always wanted to rent this lodge. Best place of the five we have rented. Lots of space for the boys to spread out. Thank you for sharing your home!

Just returned from our stay at the Laughing Moose Lodge. Over the years, we have rented this house, and once again, we were impressed with the cleanliness, attention to detail and the upgrades in this rental. The whole house looks very well cared for - new appliances in the kitchen, nice paint, new looking carpet, soap & shower gel in the showers, nice flat screen televisions in the bedrooms - this rental is simply wonderful. The kitchen has lots of pots & pans, bowls, glassware, silverware and cutting knives. The living room has lovely windows looking out over the golf course. The rental is within easy walking distance of the ski hills and from the back door you can access one of the main cross country ski trails. Beds very comfortable. A very peaceful and beautiful house to rent. Owner very responsive to any questions. Hope we can come back again next year!

Ski/Snowboard Trip

  • 5 of 5
Awesome ski trip to Crystal Mtn! Had 3 families with 10 teenagers and 6 adults. The house was very nice and modern and more than enough room for all of us. The downstairs was great for the teenagers to hangout and play pool/music till the early hours of the morning. We all fit comfortably in the kitchen and family area for meals and playing board games together. Not ski in/out, but easily walkable to the Buck chair lift with our ski gear and would definitely recommend Laughing Moose Lodge to large family group vacations

First Class All The Way

  • 5 of 5
Laughing Moose Lodge was such a nice getaway for our group of 16 for a ski trip. The house had plenty of room for everyone. And, while it's not a ski in/ski out home, I can tell you that we walked about 5 minutes on the golf course and skied down the fairway to the lift area. Further, the resort is set up in such a way, that when we finished skiing, we made a quick phone call to one of our non-skiers to pull up to one of the lifts and pick us up. We were a little nervous with such a large group that we would feel confined. Well, even with 6 adults and 10 teenagers, the house had multiple locations for each group to hang out after skiing. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again, either in summer or winter.

Great house. The house has a perfect layout providing common space for kids and adults. The house is nicely equipped with everything you will need. We had three families and felt at home from the time we arrived.

We had a great stay, the home fits the needs of a large group perfectly. We had a winter bonfire/cookout in the back yard - loved the ski lift chair swing.

Located at beautiful Crystal Mountain. This home is on the tenth fairway of the Betsie Valley Golf Course. There is a map included in the photos section that shows the Laughing Moose Lodge at lot 97 of the “Club” community. The base of the closet ski lift (Buck) is a 500 yard walk. When considering a rental property, be sure to determine exactly where the lot location is on a map.

Crystal Mountain is an outstanding destination resort, plus there are great local Northern Michigan attractions nearby. Nearby are fabulous beaches at Frankfort and Elberta, plus Sleeping Bear Dunes right up the road, and canoeing/kayak/raft on the nearby Betsie or Platte rivers. Scenic M22, Empire, Glen Arbor, Wine country, Leelanau, Traverse City are all 30-45 minutes away.

Golf: Crystal Mountain has 2 outstanding 18 hole courses - the Betsie Valley and Mountain Ridge courses. The Laughing Moose Lodge is located at the 150 yard marker of the par 5 tenth hole of the Betsie Valley course, so you can sit on the deck, screened porch, or yard and watch the approach shots.

Ski: Crystal Mountain has been rated the best family resort in the Midwest by Ski Magazine. It is very family friendly, yet has lots of snowboard terrain parks and a good mix of difficulty of skiing terrain.
