Overview

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.

Pet friendly...towels to keep 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.

Rental Gem Near Crystal Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic, three generation ski weekend at this rental gem. The layout is great for multiple/large families; it's well-cared for; clean; and contains every necessity. The owner is attentive and stays in close communication throughout the rental process. In addition, If your destination is Crystal Mountain, the proximity cannot be beat. Great find!

Owner's Response: We are so glad everyone likes the house. I think I've said it before but, if you don't enjoy yourselves at our house it's your fault not ours! I built the house with groups in mind and the layout makes group good times almost unavoidable (at least our family and friends always enjoy ourselves).

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was new, clean, and well stocked. We had everything we needed to enjoy a weekend of skiing at Crystal Mountain, just around the corner. It's not on the resort, but it's close enough to seem like it is. Kirk was very accommodating, and even shipped items left behind back to us. My family has been going to Crystal each winter for almost twenty years, and this was definitely one of the best places we've stayed.

Owner's Response: I am always happy to mail stuff back, you'd be surprised how often people forget stuff. The only thing I won't mail back is extra beers or liquor we call that "Gratuities" and they are always appreciated. Kirk

You Won't Be Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a weekend of skiing and snowboarding with a group of friends from college. We had 10 people stay, and there was ample room for everyone to feel comfortable. Kirk was very helpful, and made himself available to us if we needed anything throughout the weekend. He built the property himself, and everything is very well kept and clean. We appreciated the amount of clean linens, and towels he provided. It was nice to see that he was a fellow dog lover, and he didn't have an issue with my dog coming along for the weekend. My friend left her pillow on accident, and Kirk was generous enough to mail it to her and take the cost of the postage out of the security deposit. That was greatly appreciated.

I highly recommend this rental, and it sure beats the price of staying at the Crystal Mountain resort. It's only a mile away, and it's on a quiet street. We'll definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: My best friend is a German Shepherd Dog named Kali (Kay-lee) and we have had and traveled with dogs for years. In fact generally speaking if Kali can't go, I don't go.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that people enjoy the house. Our family has a great time anytime that we use the house. The best is when out of town family visits. We don't do much different when your family visits than when our family visits.

Wonderful place to stay for our family ski vacation. Spacious layout, nicely decorated, well equipped home with all the amenities. My husband was thrilled to be able to grill a meal on the back patio. We'll be back next year!

Owner's Response: I thought we were the only family that barbecues all year round regardless of weather. It's good to know there are others.

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.
