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.

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

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.

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.

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: I built the entire house (w/help from a friend) myself so when something goes wrong I usually know exactly what is going on. This time though I don't know? Tested everything and it all tests good and haven't been able to reproduce the chirp. Anomaly? Either way I strive to be available for emergencies or just for questions. That is the most important thing, along with a friendly outlook. People on vacation want (and deserve) to not sweat the little things so leave that to me, Kirk.

Owner's Response: We try to provide the little things that make enjoying vacation easy, charcoal, firewood, basic kitchen stuff etc, but what helps ease the way the most is a friendly local that you can call whenever you need help or advice. At our house that's me, Kirk.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND WONDERFUL AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect house for vacationing families. I would recommend this property whole-heartily! Plenty of space to spread out. We were a group of 8 people and we all had room to be together for vacation fun! The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked with all cooking essentials. Everything in the home is top-notch. We were greeted with some great home-made wine from the homeowner as well as fresh eggs and all the ingredients for s'more's to make over the backyard campfire. The house is a perfect location from Crystal Mountain. We would definitely come back to this wonderful home and to beautiful northern Michigan!

Owner's Response: Ken and Sue's family were great guests, and with the weather when they were here they definitely spent some time in the house. It's even better with good weather! We hope they will come back in the future and see for themselves.

AWESOME STAY CLOSE TO SLOPES!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with 2 families at this great ranch level home. Everything was wonderful! We were welcomed by a sweet card and bottle of wine (in addition to fresh eggs and ham)!! The soft bathroom towels were fabulous! We loved the short drive to the slopes as well. We recommend this to everyone! Having internet access was a plus!!

Owner's Response: Doesn't everybody hate thin chintzy towels? I know we do! We like to feel comfortable and at home/relaxed when we vacation and hope all our guests feel the same when they stay at our house. Because it is "our house", not some hotel.

PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house couldn't have been better. Exceeded our expectations, all new appliances/items, very nice inside. Very short drive to Crystal Mountain, which was a great place to ski. Kirk was available when we had any questions about the area. Everyone in our party enjoyed their stay, would recommend this place to all. Thanks again Kirk!

Owner's Response: One of the great things about owning this house has been our guests! They seem more like friends you don't know than customers. We hope everyone who stays with us feels the same way, I think it makes the difference between a good vacation and a great one.

VERY NICE HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
This house is very nice. It didn't have regular television service at the time so we missed the playoffs and bowl games but I understand they are going to install that. The kitchen is spacious and open and great for entertaining. The house seems much larger inside than from out as the layout is excellent for either 2 famines or to separate out kids! Enjoyed our stay very much. We were welcomed by bacon, eggs, and a local bottle of wine. All were appreciated.

PS. Scott and his family ended up coming back five more times including a 5 day stay

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.
