MCKENZIE'S LODGE - 5 STARS!

McKenzie's Lodge - 5 Stars!
  • 5 of 5
Took our annual ski trip to Crystal Mountain, and we loved it! Our extended family (grandparents down to younds kids) had a GREAT time staying here. We enjoy cooking large family meals, so it was really important to have a fully stocked kitchen, and McKenzie's Lodge had absolutely everything we needed. It even had a high chair for our young son! The laundry room and wash tub came in very handy, since we had a lot of wet, snowy ski gear that needed to be dried often. This home is very family and kid friendly, with a ton of video games, board games, and a nice DVD library. We even downloaded movies from Netflix on the internet TV. Highly recommend this home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Tony. Glad to hear your family enjoyed your vacation. We had our best snow season ever this year! Also glad to hear you enjoyed using the kitchen quite a bit! Next time, take a night off and try the pizza from Little Betsie's Bistro - it's excellent!

FUN SUMMER GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a blast at this home! There was plenty of space for our group (two families of 4), it had all the amenities we needed, and we LOVED the big deck! The kids enjoyed the lower game room, and we were able to keep all our stuff (bikes, toys, coolers) in the garage. We walked to the resort and village area every day - don't think we drove at all during our stay. We've stayed at other private homes on vacations, and this one was one of the cleanest, well kept by far!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay! The front deck is a great place to just hang out and relax. Next time make sure you try out the chiminea - wonderful to have a fire right on the deck!

A WONDERFUL SKI VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mckenzie's lodge for a relaxing ski weekend and we had a blast! The description was spot on - super clean, comfortable and enough room for our group of 8 to spread out. The kids enjoyed watching movies and playing video games in the basement, and loved the foosball table. It was so relaxing to come home from skiing and make a fire in the wood stove. We were able to leave our equipment in the garage, and grab it the next morning on our way out, which was very convenient. Having shuttle passes was great. We called the front desk and the bus was at the driveway in front of the house in 5 minutes. It was SO much easier than driving, parking, and dragging our gear to the slopes. The best part was that we saved a ton of $$$ compared to renting a similar size property through the resort, and the location was even better than some of the resort's properties. No doubt we will be back at mckenzies lodge!

Owner's Response: Stuart, thanks for the review and glad your family had fun at Mckenzie's Lodge! We also use the wood stove a lot. It really adds to the "Up North" feeling, and it keeps the entire house warm all night long!

FUN FALL WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd trip to Crystal for a Fall weekend, and 1st time staying at a private home on the resort. We normally stay at one of the resort properties, but found homes to be much more reasonably priced. McKenzie's Lodge was outstanding - very clean, comfortable, and plenty of room for 8 of us. The home met all our expectations. Loved the location. We walked to the Wild Tomato restaurant for coffee each morning. Had great weather, so we really enjoyed the chairlift ride up to the top of the mountain for a drink and to watch the sun set. Great bonfire pit, and plenty of wood! The guys loved the two golf courses, and the kids really enjoyed the alpine slide and the ice cream hut in the center of the resort. All in all, a wonderful vacation home!

Owner's Response: Heather, thanks for the review! We really appreciate it! Glad you enjoyed the bonfire pit. We built that this Summer, and it sounds like it's getting a lot of use! Hope you were there for the Fall colors. It's beautiful up there when all the trees are changing colors!

LOVED THE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We head to a Northern MI resort for a couples golf outing every year, and this was our 1st trip to Crystal. What a lovely area! The entire resort was so clean, well manicured, and the staff everywhere was great! McKenzies lodge was perfect for our group. I was a little skeptical about the other reviews, but they were very accurate! Great resort home... clean, comfy, and plenty of amenities for couples and/or families. So glad we brought our bikes... the Benzie Valley Trail was awesome! The golf courses (and the Thistle Pub) were outstanding! We spent all our time between the kitchen, huge family room and the deck. Great times catching up with friends we hadn't seen in a while. Overall a great time and a great stay at McKenzies Lodge!

Owner's Response: McKenzie's Lodge is very close to the pro shop for you golfers. We're within easy walking distance to the Kinlochen, which houses the pro shop, Thistle Pub, and an outdoor eatery in the Summer. Be sure to check Crystal's website for golf packages - last Summer they had family golf nite packages several days a week. It's a great opportunity to get the whole family on the course for 9 holes, and they include hot dogs and soda's for the kids.

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AT THIS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Crystal Mountain, and we will definitely be back! We were vacationing with my family (two kids, 6 and 10) and my brother's family (3 kids, 4, 8, and 9), and we had plenty of room in this home. The kids loved playing the Wii in the basement TV room (loved the Guitar Hero!), while the adults spent many hours relaxing on the huge deck. The home was very nicely appointed - new kitchen appliances, comfy couches, even an extra fridge in the garage (which we needed, since we cooked nearly every night). We had a couple of rainy days, so the DVD library and games and puzzles came in very handy, since we had a houseful of kids. Loved the rustic log furtniture in the bedrooms! The location was excellent - about a 5 minute walk to the resort center, but just far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet amongst all the tall trees. We highly recommend McKenzies Lodge - it more than met our expectations!

Owner's Response: Sarah, thanks for the review, and it sounds like your group had fun on your 1st trip to Crystal! McKenzie's Lodge is a perfect place to share with another family! We added a foosball table in the basement rec room, so now the kids will have even more to do down there! Come see us next Summer, as we added a new chiminea for fires on the deck.
