Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cathedral ceiling full open floor plan with bathroom sleeping up to 4.

Part of the newly developed Crystal Adventures, you will be staying only 1.5 miles from all of Crystal Mtn Resort activities. 25 mins to Casino. So much available for the outdoor adventurer as the property borders acres of state land. The Betsie River is just down the road. Canoe / Kayak rentals & trips made daily from right here.

No trailering your snowmobile needed. Trail access from your door step. Lake Michigan is only 20 minutes. Too many lakes to list offering any activity you can possibly dream. Only 20 minutes to Tippy Dam where you can try your luck fishing trout & salmon. Local wineries always showing their new products. Restaurant & Bar within walking distance. Enjoy a walk thru the back trails or relax at the fire pit with as much wood as you can burn. Just please be careful and responsible. Horseshoe pits are also set up for your enjoyment in the Summer months. WE RENT SNOWMOBILES & ATV's too!

Cabins are great!

  • 5 of 5

The cabins are brnad new, you can still smell the cedar inside the cabins. The cabins are perfect for a couple trying to get away for the weekend. It is 5 minutes away from Crystal Mountain, walking distance from a nearby bar (that has keno!) about 100 yards from the cabin, and 5 minutes away from the Thompsonville bar who has the best burgers in town.

The cabin had cable and the best were comfortable. Jeff, the owner, supplied us with fresh towels and washcloths every day, which was great!

All in all the cabins are new and well kept. The location couldnt be better (right off m-115), and the owner is great.

One of my friends that stayed the week before said Jeff helped him fix his snowmobile while he was staying at the cabin. How's that for service?

Definately coming back when we go back to Crystal Mountain.

Lower herring lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Beresford cottage was awesome!! We are a family of 5 and it was very spacious and cozy. Plenty of room for all my boys. The lake right off the back yard was so great. Great swimming, you could walk out far, very fun. Beautiful view of the lake and vert close to everything. Super clean cottage!! Will be back!!

A great place for outdoors and get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Well looked after and the Kayaking was great. We actually stayed in July 2012. Didn't realize we hadn't written a review. Great place to stay. Cabins were perfect.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented a cabin for both my birthday & 4th of July weekend & had a great time! Our cabin was so cute & clean. Jeff was kind enough to accomodate for our late arrival & left a key out for us. We loved that we were able to bring our dogs along too. We didn't get around to kayaking this time, but we'll be back for sure! We enjoyed Rosie's for some breakfast & the Crystal Palace Bar/Restaurant across the street was lots of fun too. The owner treated me to a birthday beverage; Thanks Bruce! We look forward to our next trip to Northern Michigan & might make the trek up there this winter for some skiing. Thank you Jeff :)

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. They were clean and comfortable. They are close to Rosie's resturant which is a great place for breakfast. There is a bar and resturant within walking distance for good food also. We had a wonderful stay and hope to stay here again soon.
