About Buzz Klann

We built our home at Crystal Mountain as a rental investment, but soon began taking our kids skiing in the winter and enjoying the many summer area activities. Our grandchildren are now enjoying Crystal and the surrounding area. With 6 bedrooms on 3 levels each family has privacy and we all have enough space for our stuff.

Buzz Klann purchased this house in 1979

Why Buzz Klann chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

We choose Crystal Mountain because it is a year round resort. Downhill and cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Golf, water Park, biking, hiking, spa in the resort. Canoeing, kayaking and close by beaches make it a great place in the summer as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Large Group Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have had four families coming to Crystal Mountain for the past four years and this is by far the best cottage we have stayed in. The decor is nice, the beds are comfortable, the location is great, and it really will accommodate 20 people! We only had 15 people in our group, but there was plenty of room to spare. We will hopefully be renting Ski-n-Tee again next year!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the area. There was plenty of room for the children play and adults visit and play. Activities in the area were perfect for all of us. The house was clean and well organized for babies to sleep and others to play.

Comfy and stocked home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Hosts Buzz and Mary were prompt to respond and great help. Booking was easy, and were changes also smooth. Rates were very reasonable.

We are from Ohio, Texas, Florida, and the Carolinas. We were so happy with this charming home. We filled all 6 bedrooms, all the beds, never ran out of towels, kitchen stocked with dish soap, dish wager pods, and even had spices. The activities on the resort were fun. Michigan in the summer is beautiful. If the temps in the daytime reach the high 80's it will get stuffy in the afternoon but the fans throughout will keep the breeze moving. We were there in July and spent most afternoons away. Nights were chilly enough for a good night's sleep. We would stay again.

Nice location, plenty of sleeping room.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ski-N-Tee for a few nights in late June. The 6 bedrooms worked out great for our group of 9 adults and 3 toddlers. The house was neat and clean could have accommodated many more. We had a campfire one night with the provided firewood. The owner was easy to work with. The only shortcoming was lack of hot water when there was multiple showers. I would consider renting Ski-N-Tee again.

Cozy home w/lots of privacy, close to attractions

  • 5 of 5

This cozy home had plenty of private space for four couples and 6 grown children. The basement provided a nice place for the young people to "hang out", watch tv and play games, while the adults relaxed in the first floor living room. We enjoyed the golf course, fitness room, swimming pool and hottub that the lodge had to offer. We were thrilled to be centrally located so that we could visit the nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City, and easily return to our quiet surroundings in the evenings. There were plenty of clean linens for everyone and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cookware and spices. This made it possible for us to experience one of our best trips ever!

Fantastic time at the Crystal Mountian Ski-N-Tee Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the Ski-N-Tee home at Crystal Mountain. The home is in walking distance to the resort but is also serviced by a 24 hour shuttle. The grounds were beautiful and the home was big enough (6 bedrooms 3 baths and 2 living areas) to accommodate 12 of us ranging in age from 85 years old to 2 months old. It was also pet friendly which was a big plus. Other than the home needing a few updates (up stairs bathroom) it is a great family property that we will probably rent again next year.
