Great Summer Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the property for an extended family vacation and had a great time! The property was very clean and spacious enough for a large group of adults and kids. We all had plenty of room. We enjoyed having our coffee on the deck each morning. The kids loved swimming in the outdoor pool on the complex and playing water basketball. We went into the darling town of Frankfort and enjoyed shopping, ice cream and the beach. The fellas even got some golf in at one of the nearby courses. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation and I would absolutely recommend the property to other families. We would like to go back during the winter for skiing!!

House for the entire family- lots of room!

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family- sisters, their children, our children and our grandchildren spent Labor Day weekend at Crystal Mountain in this house. Plenty of room for all to spread out. Plenty of beds and bedding options. Lots of privacy and room for quiet if you want it, as well as room for all to gather. A short walk to resort property (.25 to .5 mile). Between the dining area, the kitchen bar and the table on the deck, there is room for all to eat-but in the winter you may have to eat in shifts. They have thought of everything you might need. There is a gas station/convenience store about 1/2 mile down the road. Everything worked well and most things were as stated in description. However- the double bed bottoms of the bunks were past their use by date- deep well in the middle of each made these beds sleep one person only. And the bottom of the top bunk in the other bedroom was "shredding" badly. The top bunks were all very comfy. A few caveats: when the indoor temp is comfortable on the top and main levels, it is rather chilly downstairs. And there are many stairs as would be expected in a home with three living levels! (That was only a problem for gramma and grampa.) The owners were very pleasant to deal with and my security deposit was returned promptly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us we are glad you enjoyed your stay! I have addressed your concerns with the bunk bed "shredding" problem and the material will be replaced on that. The double bunks are being fixed as well but they are really only meant to sleep one person on each that is why I state our home sleeps 15, hopefully this fix will make it more comfortable if two people wish to sleep on those double futon bottoms. Thanks again we do appreciate the feedback it helps us make sure everything is taken care of for our upcoming renters.

Nice place for huge family

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house. We booked last minute and everything was settled fairly quickly. The instructions are super clear from the staff (I communicated with Amy). Clean beautiful house, stocked with everything you might need. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We had 15 people, and we all fit in the rooms really nicely. We were able to see the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Torch lake which was a drive away but not too far. We all loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

Thanks for lending your home to us :)

Great family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with our three grown children, their spouses and all 8 grandchildren ranging in age from nearly 2 to 14 years old. It was perfect, plenty of room for the kids to spread out and for the adults to visit. The fire pit was a big hit in the evening, there was so much to do at the resort and the home is centrally located for visiting Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and everyone's favorite - Silver Lake Sand Dunes and the Mac Woods dune buggies. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable and the home was spotless. It's hard to pick a place on-line but everyone agreed that this was a perfect vacation in every way. No complaints anywhere from any of our 16 guests - in fact they all want to go back next year!

Best ski weekend imaginable

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly gorgeous chalet! the pictures are almost a little deceiving but in a good way as the house felt much larger than what we initially expected. Even with temperatures falling to -20 on the night of our arrival the entire house remained at a perfect temperature. we were told it wasn't exactly walking distance to the resort and that would be true if you were wearing and or carrying your ski equipment but we all walked up to the lodge for drinks on Saturday and it is closer than you would think. would love to make this an every year event as per the majority of occupants it was the top ski weekend anyone has had. Thanks for everything!

Great place for family ski vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had two families share the house for a ski trip. There was plenty of space for all of us and the rooms were all comfortable. It's a short maybe 3/4 mile drive to the parking lot to ski the Buck Chair lift. There was an issue with the switch on the fireplace when we got there - the owners responded to my email within an hour and there was a repairman there the next morning (Saturday) to fix the issue. All handled very well and professionally. Our security deposit was fully refunded with no issues. I would definitely return for another visit!
