About The Owner

Neil & Linda Nugent have enjoyed Crystal Lake for 40 years. We purchased our home on Crystal Lake in 1973 and raised our family on the lake. We purchased the rental cottage in 1982 and have extensively remodeled the cottage during the years. We know that you will love Crystal Lake as we do.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1982

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

The cottage is only a few hundred yards from our home on the lake.

Wonderful time, as always, at Crystal Lake! This cottage was perfect for our family! Nice beach and great view of the lake. Owners are very friendly. Already looking ahead to next year!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for several years and just love it! It has a fantastic location, plenty of room for my entire family, dock, and nice sandy beach for kids to play on. We always catch a lot of fish in Crystal Lake and enjoy the fire pit that is right on the sandy beach. They also furnish the linens, beach towels, and the owners always treat us like family. The Betsie River Bike Path goes right in front of the cottage so we always enjoy riding that path. The owners actually saved our fishing boat after one of the worst ever thunderstorms hit the area in August. They risked their life's bailing out the boat, getting it unstuck from a neighbors dock, and reattaching it to the mooring lines during a terrific thunderstorm. We thank them so much for their kindness, generosity, and for saving our fishing boat. We plan on renting this beautiful cottage again.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained and very clean. Beautiful lake and charming little town within walking distance. The kids loved the 'private beach' (sand front at lake). Everything in home was comfortable. Fully stocked - we didn't miss a thing from home! It was the perfect get-a-way for family of nine. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer then the then week. Owners were very friendly and accessible.

Crystal Lake Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location! The photo might make it seem like a house but a cottage it is. Plenty of room. The lake is also much closer than it appears in the photo which was awesome. Crystal Lake Marina is directly accross from the cottage which was great for a pontoon rental. (great prices) What a great plus having beach towels, BR towels and all the linens. Could use a few updates along with kitchen curtains due to morning sun but no complaints.Kitchen complete with everything & gas outdoor grill. Lovely neighbors. Quiet and no traffic. If you're looking to be on a Crystal Clear lake ;) and are happy with a cottage feel this is the place for you & your family!

Wonderful vacation on Crystal Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the Nugent Cottage in Beulah, Michigan on Crystal Lake. The cottage was just the right size for our growing family. It was very clean and comfortable. The towels and beach towels provided was a real bonus!

We were wondering the purpose of the rope on the beach. The beach area is not "kid friendly", but, the dock and boat were great!
