About Mike Walker
This is our very special place. Wendy's family has a long history (back to the 1940's) of spending summers up in the general vicinity of Crystal Lake, but her grandparents were never able to find a place to stay on the Lake. When Wendy found this amazing cottage (called "Crystal Liebe" by the prior builders/owners), we fell instantly in love with it. Although we have only owned it for a few years, it has already brought our family wonderful memories. We are delighted to share some of that magic with you.

Awesome cottage right on the lake. Loved it.
A FANTASTIC Family Vacation !!
Our family had a wonderful stay :) Everything from the start of the booking until the check out was great! Mike and Wendy are so nice and they had a super cute welcome amenity waiting for us when we got there. Our small children LOVED being able to just wade around the sandy clear water off the back of the house. At night you just open the windows and they calming sound of the waves lapping was so peaceful! Having the outside sandy area was great for just hanging out and the kids were always digging away ;) We can not wait to head back next year!!
CRYSTAL LAKE AND MICHIGAN ROCK!!!!!
This was absolutely the best trip ever!! The cottage was amazing, the views were spectacular and the towns either way were incredible! This was the first time that my wife and both of our grown kids went on a family trip together and thanks to Mike and Wendy's hospitality and easy to find places of interest (not to mention the nice welcoming gift they left for us!), this was easily the best vacation we've ever had! The towns of Frankfort, Beulah, Empire, etc. were very friendly and made us feel like we had been long-time members of their community. Everything we wanted to see was well within driving time and well worth coming to Michigan for! 10 minutes after we left, my wife starting looking up places for sale so we could move there! The cottage truly felt like home to us: sunrises and sunsets every day, the sound of the lake hitting the shore just feet from the back door and deck, kayaking and enjoying the quietness. Even got to see two deer come down to the waters' edge for a morning drink from the lake, maybe 50 feet away from us! It just doesn't get any better than that! Can't wait until we can visit these parts again! Thanks again so much to Mike and Wendy for everything! Truly was an experience we won't soon forget! Thank you again!
