Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 main bedrooms, 1 bunk room, 2 baths, sleeps 9, ski resort shuttle service

Well appointed cabin in the Village of Crystal Mountain. Large screened in porch overlooks the 8th green of the Betsie valley course. Crystal Lake, Lake Michigan, Traverse City, Historic Frankfort and Little River Casino all within a 30 minute drive.

This house is well appointed and furnished with everything you will need. You will feel that you are truly in a north woods lodge. The 2 main bedrooms are on the first floor with a large bunk room on the second floor with a queen, twin and bunk beds

Beautiful Property - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for a long weekend. There were 6 adults and one toddler and the house was the perfect size for everyone. It had everything you could need - right down to the utensils, napkins, towels & toilet paper - which was so nice. Not only was the cabin well-stocked, it was just plain adorable. The owners take really good care of everything and did a great job decorating. My favorite part of the days we were there was coming back to the house because it was so cozy. Probably the biggest plus to this house was the big screened-in porch that allowed us to eat together and play games without the worry of getting bit by mosquitos - a true lifesaver in the midst of summer in Michigan.

This house is located right around the corner from the Crystal Mountain Resort. Its a quick walk up the street, or a 1-minute car ride. The resort was so much fun for everyone and offered golf, was small water park, restaurants and entertainment - something for everyone!

The owner was also an absolute pleasure to work with. He was really prompt and helpful during the booking process. It was such a breeze.

Definitely stay here is you have the opportunity - you won't be disappointed! We will definitely be back sometime!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent four nights at the cottage and couldn't have been happier. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and the location is great--walking distance to everything at crystal but far enough way to get a little peace and quiet. We traveled with four adults, two kids aged 3 and 4 and two toddlers under 2 and had plenty of space. The yard is great, the screened in porch is fantastic and we can't wait to return. Thank you, Pat & Barb!!

This cabin was perfect for our family skiing vacation. It had all of the amenities that you might want and was very clean and comfortable. It is very close to the slopes, less than a 2 minute drive. The downstairs rec room was a great place to play games at night when we were off the slopes. I would recomend this cabin to any family who likes to enjoy time away.

Perfect Crystal Mountain Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The entire family loved this cottage! The house was very comfortable and I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. Anything you needed was available. It was also nice to have a dryer in the basement to dry our wet ski clothes! It was a short drive to all the Crystal Mountain amenities. We would definitely stay here again!
