Our home is located on an elevated lot on the north shore of Crystal Lake, known as one of the ten most beautiful lakes in the world. There are breathtaking views of the lake from entire home. On the lower lot is a fire pit for your evening enjoyment, a dock with a large platform and 100 feet of lake frontage. Just completed a beautiful new staircase connecting the upper & lower levels of our rental.

We are located halfway between two beautiful & unique towns. Frankfort is a Lake Michigan port city with great shopping, dining, fishing and sandy beaches. Beulah is on the east end of Crystal Lake and also has shopping, dining, and a beautiful public beach over looking the length of the lake.

We are located within an hour of the The Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City and Crystal Mountain. We look forward to sharing our Little Piece of Paradise with you and your family.

We absolutely love this vacation home!! This was our second summer spending the week at Stewart's cottage on Crystal Lake. The home is very clean and comfortable. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us! It is situated in an ideal location. You are within 30 minutes from Glen Arbor, Frankfort, Traverse City and 10 minutes from beautiful Lake Michigan!! There is plenty to see and do in the area. The home has a beautiful deck just outside the family room with a large picnic table and grill. It is shaded most of the afternoon, which makes a lovely spot for hanging out, reading, enjoy the view, etc. They also have a wonderful dock with the property directly on the lake. The water is clean and inviting. The master bedroom is very spacious, plenty of room. The only negative I found was, the spare bathroom is quite small, however the bathroom in the master is very nice, we didn't mind sharing!! This was our second stay and are already talking about returning next July. Summer's in Michigan are delightful. Plenty of sunshine and low humidity! I would highly recommend this property.

Great get away two years running now

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! This past July was our second year coming up to Stewart's lovely cottage. We have made it our destination for our annual sisters week away coming from as far as FL and Cincinnati. The cottage is super clean and nicely stocked. The views from the upper deck are unbelievable! Crystal lake is seriously one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the U.S. This property sits in a prime location with two different decks for lounging and taking in the beauty. It's a great lake to run or bike around and the location is close to so many fun towns and great restaurants. Stewart was very accommodating and we hope to have the opportunity to make it back for year number three next year. Added bonus the stairs from the cottage to the lake are a great workout. Drinking wine on the upper deck with my sisters is a slice of heaven. Next summer can't get here soon enough thanks Stewart!

Comforts of Home on Crystal Lake

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had staying in this lovely and cozy home. Stewart and Linda were wonderful hosts making us feel as welcome as old friends. The home has an enormous deck overlooking the lake where we had meals, danced and just relaxed reading and star gazing at night. We loved relaxing out there watching and listening for wildlife, wild turkeys in the morning and deer in the evening! The master suite has a very comfortable king size bed and sofas and we were happy to have private full baths in the two separate living areas. Our granddaughter was overjoyed with the fire pit area where we roasted marshmallows and played in the sand. We spent hours at the end of the dock both swimming and just lounging on the comfortable benches watching the sunset. This home exceeded all of our expectations and certainly plan to return next year.

Gorgeous Cottage and Location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends, family and I enjoyed Stuart and Linda's cottage SO much! The cottage was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and the view overlooking the lake was absolutely breathtaking -- not to mention the wonderful double bench out on the dock -- such a great spot to sit and watch the sun set over the lake! We took several little day trips because there were so many great places within a short drive. Couldn't ask for nicer people to rent from too -- very helpful and responsive whenever we had a question or needed something!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time. The views of crystal lake were wonderful, and we utilized the boat hoist to dock our ski boat. The lake is beautiful and our daughter had a wonderful time swimming in the lake. Looking forward for years to come.

Better than ever

  • 5 of 5

We came back for another wonderful week on Crystal Lake. The new deck and steps up to the house are great new additions. We slept soundly in the master bedroom. The lake is as beautiful as ever. The fire pit is a fun way to end a day. Stewart and Linda are excellent hosts.
