CHARMING FAMILY BEACHFRONT VACATION ON CRYSTAL LAKE

Crystal Lake Apartment Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms On The Lake, Rent Just One, Or All 8!

The Beach House is a turn-of-the-century, twenty-room home that was used as a boarding house for young college women working in the large luxury hotels of the lumbering era in Northwestern Michigan. The grandeur and charm remain with quaint living rooms, individual kitchens and bathrooms in each of the six living quarter. There are 4 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom rentals, which can be rented individually or all together when available. It is ideal for a family gathering of any size!

Each place includes a new flat screen TV with built in DVD, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, and electric range. There is a common picnic area and gas grills on the side lawn and a shared deck on the second floor overlooking the lake. If you have a special request, ask to see if we can accommodate it.

The house is located within feet of the east end of Crystal Lake, between the children's playground and boat launch on Beulah's town beach. The bike trail that connects Thompsonville and Frankfort is just around the corner.

There are also several restaurants and shops in this quaint community. If you are ready for more exploring, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Arcadia Bluffs, Frankfort, and Elberta Beach are all within 25 minutes’ drive.

When our family travels to this area each summer, we make a list of must do things while we are there. Here's our 2014 list:

- swim in Crystal Lake

- watch a sunset from the beach

- climb the dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park

- pick fresh fruit (probably cherries and blueberries)

- catch a fish

- find a Petoskey stone

- play in the waves on Lake Michigan

- jump from the Frankfort Pier (only on a calm day)

- tubing/water skiing

- ride on the bike trail

- bonfire on Elberta Beach

- drive-in theater at the Cherry Bowl

- dinner at the Cherry Hut

- shopping on Main Street in Frankfort

Good thing we are there for two weeks!

Hope you enjoy your time, regardless of where you stay!

I grew up in Frankfort, but have lived 40 miles outside of New York City for the past 25 years. I have never missed a summer in Northern Michigan, and my wife and I now bring our kids to enjoy the laid back life this area offers.

Nancy and Scott Bradley purchased this apartment in 2013

We bought this place sight unseen! I knew the location (on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world), the town (quaint little shops and next to the Rails to Trails entrance), and the area, but hadn't seen the inside of the house. When I finally saw the place first hand, I couldn't believe what an awesome place it was. With 6 separate units, it's perfect for large groups that want to be together for vacation, but not living on top of each other. It also allows us the flexibility to accommodate couples or small families in individual rental units. It suits our family perfectly, and I think it will suit yours as well.

The water quality of Crystal Lake is incredible, drawing us to Michigan each summer. This house is on the beach, but also in the middle of town! Rent one room or the entire place, making it ideal for family vacations of any size group.

If you have stumbled upon this corner of the world, you likely already know that's its beauty is beyond compare! The Beach House is located in downtown Beulah, making it a perfect place for the family. The youngest will play all day on the beach, giving the teenagers a little freedom to walk for lunch, and allowing the parents and grandparents to enjoy the beautiful views from the second floor deck.

If you have a large group, you might consider having a couple of dinners catered. You'll find that it's hard to leave the lake on a gorgeous summer night. Let us know prior to your arrival and we can make arrangements on your behalf.
