Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent vacation rental patrons, vacation rental owners ourselves, and have very high standards when it comes to our accommodations. Rarely have we stayed in such a clean, well-appointed rental. The kitchen is amazing -- with plenty of good-quality cookware & dishes. The teenaged girls loved the bunk room & bathroom upstairs, as well as the ping-pong and foosball tables in the basement. The beds are comfortable, have linens of good quality, and never have we rented a place with so many clean towels in the bathrooms. Our favorite part of the stay was the cozy screened porch. We spent about 99% of our time out there. Our family enjoyed the pool, adventure course, climbing wall, and alpine slide -- all within walking distance of the house. Pat was great to work with. Our only regret is that our visit was too short. We will definitely be back to enjoy this beautiful home again.

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!!
