NEW, BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME 3/4 MILE TO CRYSTAL MT. U-SHAPED DRIVEWAY

Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms right by Crystal Mt. and Betsie River

Gorgeous wood-sided home with a deck, covered front porch, side porch and yard. The home was designed with entertaining and families in mind. There are lots of large windows for great light and lots of fresh air. The floor plan is open so groups will feel comfortable and have plenty of space. The kitchen is large with a huge granite island with stools so when we are there, that is where we all end up. The kitchen opens into a dining area with a table that seats 10 and flows into the Great Room. Beautiful hardwood floors and high ceilings throughout.

In the summer/fall there is a fire pit for your evening enjoyment. There is a charcoal barbecue next to the deck and a high-end stove inside for cooking.

The great room has a large flat screen TV w/cable, a blue ray player, Netflix, and a home theater sound system. The second living room also has a flat screen TV w/cable, blue ray player, Net Flix, and a video game console.

The house has high speed Wi-Fi.

There is a washer and dryer and even a boot dryer to dry your wet boots! Queen-sized airmattress, extra blankets and lots of new plush towels. Tons of board games and a bad mitt on/volleyball setup outside.

About Kirk Bettison

We built this house in 2013 to be able to share time with our extended family and are so happy to share it with others. We want you to enjoy our house and region as much as we do so do not hesitate to ask questions. We live in the area, so if you need anything, we want you to feel free to call us!

Kirk Bettison purchased this house in 2013

Why Kirk Bettison chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

This property is ideal as it is so close to Crystal Mt but without all the resort crowds. Our fully appointed kitchen allows you to cook your own meals, even to come back home for lunch or a nap before heading back to the slopes.

What makes this house unique

More economical than staying at the resort, yet a much more luxurious 'home' atmosphere. We built this house and its fixtures to be our own unique family vacation home. We put 25 years of building/woodworking experience into it and it shows.

There is keyless entry so you don't have to keep track of or return a key.

Family friendly...highchair, booster seat, infant tub, toddler dishes and a crib/playpen. Just let us know what you need!

Pet friendly...towels to keep Fido dry, water and food bowls, pet sheets.

Basic pantry supplies available. Flour, sugar, spices, oils, butter, coffee plus there are always farm fresh eggs in the fridge (we have our own chickens at home).

The gourmet kitchen is built for a cook, from the custom finished cabinets to the complete selection of small appliances there is everything you need to create any dish your family loves. The best part is that due to the open floor plan the cook will never be left out of the fun and everybody can help with the meals.

Pictures do not do this house justice - It's updated nicely, spacious and accommodated 4 adults, 2 kids and a dog perfectly! We loved house close it is to Crystal Mountain and Kirk, the owner, was super responsive, friendly and easy to work with. Looking forward to our next stay! Thanks much!

Owner's Response: We are looking forward to the Kettlers next stay too! Crystal Mt is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. Our little dead end road is so quiet that you would think you were way out in the boondocks, not less than a mile from a big resort. All the fun none of the frustrations.

Great Northern Home

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend. Beautiful cottage, right down the street from Crystal Mountain. The owner was wonderful to work with, very friendly and helpful. The cottage had every possible amenity for your use. We had fire wood ready for our use along with smores, all supplied by the owner. Can't say enough positive comments about this home. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We hope to always impress guests with "extras" that set the mood to have a memorable trip. That way if you don't enjoy yourselves, it's your fault not ours. Hopefully it never happens.

Enjoyed the house very much

  • 5 of 5
The house is brand new and it has more to offer than you can expect in your own home. The house has Netflix, Wi-Fi, board games, campfire and wood and anything you can think of is there. The owner is a very beautiful person and if you text him with any question he will respond you in no time. Our family enjoyed the house very much and I will be very happy to rent this house again. We forgot few things in the house and the owner was so kind he shipped the stuff back to us and refunded all our deposit back.

Owner's Response: People on vacation are the happiest people in the world and it is totaly easy to join their enthusiasm. People like Khaja remind us how lucky we are to live in NW Michigan, their excitement is so contagious you can't help being a little happier.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
It was even better than described! Owner is over the top accommodating. Home is spotless! Kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked. We loved the floor plan and quietness. Kids enjoyed playing outside also. Owner gifted us with his farm fresh eggs, homemade wine and smores ingredients which were all delicious and so thoughtful! We were about 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City which we loved. 2.5 hours to Mackinac City and right by Crystal Mountain Ski resort which has a heated pool and many activities. We can't wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: It's not a complicated plan, if you always provide a little more than people expect you will be successful at whatever you do, but it is a good plan. Besides I don't think I'll ever get tired of being told that I've done a good job!

Perfect Place To Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was by far the nicest vacation home we have ever stayed in. It was beautiful, clean and packed with amenities, including numerous little "extras" that make your visit easier. The location was great as we'll - not too far from anything that we wanted to do or see. An added bonus was how helpful the owner was - they even mailed back a couple of small items that inadvertently got left behind! I would definitely recommend this home for your vacation and would happily return myself.

Owner's Response: Everybody has been great guests so far and have made it easy to be helpful and seem more like just friends or family are visiting than "customers". We believe in treating people the way we like to be treated and are so glad to hear when guests have felt at home as a result of that practice!

Lovely Home, great host!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed an entire week in this home. Everything we needed was there and we were super comfortable during our stay. We had a small issue with the smoke alarms, but the owner was right there to help figure it out when we called. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes around and around in the driveway, and the proximity to Crystal Mtn was wonderful. So much fun! Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: We built the entire house ourselves so when something goes wrong I usually know exactly what to do. We strive to be available at all times for emergencies or just for questions to make your vacation a great one. When you are on vacation you want (and deserve) to not sweat the little things, so leave that to me, Kirk. Jessica is a wonderful painter and she gave us a painting she did while she stayed at our house - it is just beautiful. We are so touched by the kindness and generosity of our guests. It makes sharing our home a real joy!

You can walk or drive to a small public acess site for great fishing on the Betsie River from our house. There are many hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails close-by. We are right by Crystal Mountain Four Season Resort but offer the privacy and peace of a family home on a dead-end road.

The famous Gwen Fostick Studio is about 10 miles away in Beulah.

Spectacularly blue Crystal Lake is also in Beulah for a fun day of swimming, sunbathing, fishing and scrolling into quaint shops.
