Our property is located on crystal-clear Crystal Lake, known as one of the ten most beautiful inland lakes in the world. Our home is quaint and inspiring. Outside the door is 60 feet of frontage on the lake. We have sand for the kids to play in, and a nice dock to swim, lounge, or watch the sunsets from each night. The lake is nine miles in length and up to two miles in width. It is great for fishing and all water sports. We even have a mooring for your boat. There is a nice fire pit for making s'mores or to sit around in the evening. A 'rail-to-trail' is available just outside the front door that gives the outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to walk, jog, or bike upon. The full length of the trail is about 24 miles.
We are only one mile from the small town of Beulah, Michigan. It has nice shops for the shoppers. It is a small town that takes you back to living in the late 50's and 60's, minus all the typical franchises that often decorate most other cities. There is even a neat drive-in theater (Cherry Bowl) just down M-31 about three miles from Beulah. It has double features each evening. Everybody just loves it. It was built in 1953 and still has that 50's environment (Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean etc.).
The beautiful city of Frankfort, Michigan is only five miles West of our cottage. It is a quaint picturesque port city with great dining, shopping, ICE CREAM, and Lake Michigan Beaches.
The famous Sleeping Bear Dunes are less than an hour north of us. In fact, you will be with an hour's reach of many Northern Michigan tourist sights and other activities for small day trips if that interests you.
I know that pets are important to the family. If you are interested in bringing the family pet along, please call us to discuss that possibility.
We are very proud of our cottage. It is nestled in an area that we like to think of as our 'Little Paradise' or 'Heaven on Earth'. Whatever the case, we invite you to enjoy the beauty of Northern Michigan and enjoy the breath-taking views of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world!!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004
We had always rented for many summers and thought it would be a better way to invest as opposed to the stock market. Well, as it turns out neither one are a great investment these days.
Beautiful sunsets, nice bike rides, and gun camp fires in the evening. Boating and swimming are great.
