About Bob Dunn

We, Ann and Bob, are two retired educators who like the outdoors as well as travel. We currently reside in Manchester, MI. Bob likes to fish and bike. We both like to cross country ski. This cabin fits all our needs. Since we will not be using it at various times we thought we would continue to rent it as the previous owners did.

Ann is a graduate of Mercy College and Bob graduated from MSU. We have traveled to Europe several times, South Africa in 2011, up the Rio Negro in 2010, New Zealand in 2013, Norway 2014 and have several other trips planned. Our son lives in Kingston, NY and our daughter resides in N.C. at Chapel Hill. So we have to travel to see them too.

Bob Dunn purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Bob Dunn chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Bob learned about the area by fishing out of Arcadia for salmon and steelhead fishing the Manistee River for the past 35 years. Being that we like to cross country ski we found Crystal Mt. area to accommodate our needs to be outside in the winter. So this is an area we can go year around and enjoy our retirement.

What makes this chalet unique

After using a trailer for 5 years, we just decided it was time to buy a place that would meet our needs year around. We looked at many places and found one that was perfect for us. We did not need a big place, but wanted some place that was close to Lake Michigan to fish, available to be on the water in other locations, and ski in the winter. As people who know, the Fall is spectacular! To ride your bike in remote areas, up and down M 22, and just be outside at this time is wonderful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob we had an emergency and had to leave early. We do plan on recommending your cabin to others very comfortable.



Norman's Pies are the best.

Bob purchases pies for renters from Norma. She is twice a cancer survivor and a wonderful person. Even if you do not rent from me, I would encourage you to buy your pie(s) from Norma on 115 just east of Crystal Mountain Resort. One renter went back and purchased 6 to take home.

Great Location for Biking around Crystal Mountain and close to many other outdoor gems.

Bob & Ann are wonderful to deal with, my son and I were doing a mountain bike race at Crystal mtn. and I wanted to take the whole family without paying an arm and a leg. THeir Chalet fit our needs perfectly, Our 2 boys slept in the loft and our daughter enjoyed the couch and we had the bedroom. With it's location only 2.5 miles from the lodge at crystal it was an easy warmup ride to crystal for the race. They also surprised us with a pie from Norma's, it was so good we had to go back for more! THanks for sharing your wonderful place with our family.

Mike & Sue and family.

Clean and charming getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We have enjoyed many great family ski weekends at the chalet this winter. It is stocked with everything you need and located a couple miles from Crystal Mountain on a quiet cul-da-sac. We loved coming back to a cozy fire in the woodburning stove after a long day of skiing. Looking forward to many more fun filled stays.

Cozy Cabin near Crystal Moutain

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this cabin multiple times now to enjoy it's close proximity and convenience to Crystal Mountain. The cabin is warm, cozy and fits our family well for a weekend ski getaway. It is always clean and well-maintained. The attentive owner stays in contact before the stay to ensure everything proceeds smoothly, and after to ensure our satisfaction. This is one of our favorite winter vacation spots, however, I'm sure it would be equally enjoyable in any season.

Quiet location close to all NW Michigan amenities.

Stayed at the Chalet on Pine Meadows Drive in Thompsonville for the second time last August. What brought me back was the cabin's location, creature comforts and reasonable cost. Pine Meadows is a quiet street lined with pine trees and flocks of wild turkeys. But with neighbors around, my wife had no problems taking walks down the street while I was fishing. The cabin itself is clean with an open concept kitchen/greatroom that we liked. There is one bedroom and a loft upstairs that could be used for kids or a third adult. There is a deck in the back and a fire pit that we enjoyed in the evenings. The location is close to Crystal Mountain and the Betsie River (we like to kayak). Also, within a half hour's drive of a dozen golf courses, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the town of Frankfort. We actually rode our bikes from Thompsonville to Frankfort on the bike trail, spend the day, then caught Beulah Bus back. There are other cabins in the area, but most are for larger families and cost hundreds more. This place is perfect for one or two couples.
