Why Eric or Pat Lampinen chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville
Betsie River Getaway is centrally located in the Manistee, Benzie, and Lelanau county area, the most beautiful and scenic location in the state. Lake Michigan with it's magnificent vistas, massive sand dunes, and uncrowded beaches are only one of the area assets. Our inland lakes, rivers, forests, fall colors, and history, the miles of highway winding through it all, with M-22 in particular infuse the soul with peace and tranquility and must be experienced.
What makes this cabin unique
Betsie River Getaway rests on the bank of the picturesque Betsie River. One of only a few rivers in Michigan designated as 'Wild and Scenic'. This air conditioned cabin interior is distinct with vaulted, beamed ceilings and rough sawn wooden walls. The property is enveloped by a dense canopy of trees that provide privacy and solitude. Deer, woodpeckers, and dozens of other creatures call BRG home as well and provide hours of viewing entertainment.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful 2 weeks. With the extra time did a little extra exploring. Visited the Lily Farm, it's much more than a lily farm! Went on the art walk at Crystal Mountain, really enjoyed it. Traveled to Tandem Cyclery & Wineries in the area - yum! Suttons Bay Ambrose Cellars, worth the trip. We biked to and from Frankfort on the Betsie River bike Trail and around beautiful Crystal Lake. Easy bike ride. Of course, visited many beaches. Thanks for the great home base!
