Crystal Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the U.S. and the house is located on top of a mountain with an incredible view of almost the entire lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful home, set up high on the hills of Benzie County, overlooking the beautiful Crystal Lake. We have stayed in a few homes in this area and none compare to Stoneridge. The home was describe very well and accurate, home was clean and well supplied with all our needs. Denis and Anne were both so helpful in answering questions and providing guidance. I would highly recommend this property to others...perfect location for our ski trip to Crystal Mountain only 11 miles to the resort. We will be returning to the Stoneridge home!!! Thank you so much Denis and Anne!

Great house . Fantastiv views . Very peaceful .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in February , the house is in a great position on a hill above Beulah , Michigan . You have a view over countryside and crystal lake . The house is large and has all facilities for a comfortable stay . A large seating area and kitchen on the main floor plus bedrooms . Downstairs you have a pool table and additional bedrooms . We watched wild turkey and deer from the large windows .

Traverse city is a short drive , and has many shops and a downtown area that is worth visiting . There are local food stores nearby or Meijer and Walmart are on route to Traverse city . We drove around crystal lake and up the shore of Lake Michigan and glen arbor . We also went to Frankenmuth which is a Bavarian styled town about two and half hours away . We stayed in late winter , so did have several snow days , which , being from England we found enjoyable .

We also met Anne Noah , who manages the property . And would like to say how helpful and friendly we found her .

Overall , a great holiday and would return . I would recommend .

Enough Room for the Entire Family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family Christmas vacation in this beautiful and spacious home. There is plenty of space for guests to spread out, relax, and enjoy the spectacular views of Crystal Lake!. It's also conveniently located near the airport, shopping and Crystal Mountain. I would recommend this property to friends and family.

Beautiful View and Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home with the most gorgeous view of Crystal lake and surrounding area! We had four couples in our group and have been doing weekend getaways for more than 26 years and everyone agreed that this place was the best to date. We were there at peak fall color and just happened to catch a double rainbow stretching over the trees after a morning rain - breathtaking!

The house was large, open, roomy, clean and located in a great location where there is plenty to see and do. Just a short drive to Frankfort or Traverse City and lots of great restaurants and breweries. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Great Home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was everything we were hoping for. It is perfect for entertaining, which we did at least two nights where we also invited two groups of relatives that own homes in the Beulah and about a quarter around Crystal Lake from Beulah.

The bedrooms are of ample size and the bathrooms are well appointed. The bedding, towels and other supplies were excellent.

We most enjoyed the views form the deck, of course. The air-conditioning worked very well helping towards a most comfortable stay.

Our outings took us to the Platte River for paddling, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Short's Brewing in Bellaire, and some shorter trips to Frankfort's Stormcloud Brewing. In Benzonia, we had dinner at the Roadhouse.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the perfect accommodations for our family! This home is situated in northern Michigan close to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Frankfort, Crystal Lake, Lake Michigan and all we wanted to see and do.

We enjoyed dinner on the deck many evenings and the sunsets over Crystal Lake are fabulous.

The bedrooms are nicely spaced throughout the home to give everyone privacy and there are plenty of bathrooms for a large family. The kitchen is large and well stocked for cooking there.

The home was very clean and beautiful!

I would highly recommend this home for your next vacation!

Breathtaking View and Home.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for your fine hospitality, a beautiful home, and that breathtaking view of the Crystal Lake area and sunsets. My sister and I had a mothers and sons vacation and your home was perfect in all ways. My sister and her sons are from Philly. Their first steps into your spacious home with the floor to ceiling windows, wrap-around porch, and breath-taking view of Crystal Lake at sunset time gave the first impression of Michigan that will always be remembered. We loved the big kitchen that overlooked the great room. We are that family who all congregates around the kitchen when we are cooking. Our boys are older teenage cousins so the lower level with two bedrooms, a kitchenette stocked with snacks and pop and the pool table was perfect for the end of the day. The porch was where my sister and I started the day with coffee and ended it with wine. We loved the three bathrooms that gave moms and boys our own space and the four roomy bedrooms. The details of your home - the hardwood floors, the sun room, full kitchen, comfortable great room were beautiful. Your home was impeccably clean and tidy. We appreciated the washer and dryer, the outdoor grill, and the garage to store our bikes and rafts.

In addition to the beauty of the home, it is situated perfectly in the vicinity of lots of activity. We are an active family. We spent the days biking the Betsy and Heritage Trails, hiking the Sleeping Bear Dunes, kayaking on the Platt River, swimming in Lake Michigan and Crystal Lake, renting a pontoon from Crystal Marina, visiting Glen Arbor, Traverse City, Leland (Fishtown), Frankenmuth, Beulah for shopping, local galleries and lunches, visiting Leelanau Peninsula vineyards, going to the Cherry Bowl drive-in for a movie (very charming), playing mini golf. We didn't get to golf this year but there is a golf course nearby. When we dined out, we were always outside or on water. And, there was a grocery store nearby that allowed us to make meals for the best seat in north Michigan - on the deck at sunset.

Your beautiful home was perfect to launch the day and was the perfect retreat at the end an active day. We look forward to coming back. Next time we might bring the husbands...
