About Rob & Jamie Baker

My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers since 2007. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. Overall our plan is to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Rob & Jamie Baker chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

Awesome place to get away !

  • 5 of 5

Arrived after it had just snowed and the property looked beautiful! Great view of the river. Beautiful sunset. Used the fire pit to make an evening camp fire. (Plenty of firewood was stocked for our use.) The basement was perfect place for the kids to hang out. Lots of room downstairs. The guys were impressed by the massive TV hanging on the wall, great for watching the football games. Very comfortable. Kitchen had all the necessary equipment. Very close to the ski slope. Enjoyed our stay !

Great stay on the Betsie River!

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first time renting this property. There's a reason we keep coming back. It's great that Crystal Mountain is only two miles away for skiing, golf, and mountain biking. It's views of the Betsie River are gorgeous. I would highly recommend renting the Betsie River Lodge!

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and off the beaten path, but only 10 minutes to Crystal Mountain. The bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than mine at home. The views are beautiful. We enjoyed every part of our stay, and look forward to coming back.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lodge for an extended weekend with our family and we had a great time! The house was very beautiful, clean, and had every amenity you could hope for. It was so peaceful and quiet and we really enjoyed sitting on the deck and looking out over the beautiful scenery. The boys even took in some fishing down at the river and caught some trout. We really loved staying here and are making plans for our next trip to the Lodge! Thank you for providing such a wonderful weekend for our family.
