About Guy LaGuire

I was born and raised in Michigan and currently live on the Big Island of Hawaii (for 27 years now). Summer in Northern Michigan is a paradise all its' own. I grew up in Lansing but Beulah was my Father's home town and our place for year round adventures. I've lived in San Diego, Tokyo and now Hawaii. Michigan, however, still takes up a great space in my heart. We hope you'll come stay with us soon.

People dream of coming to Hawaii and I still dream about visiting Northern Michigan where I spent so much time as a youngster in my father's home town area of Benzonia and Beulah. My boyhood adventures in this area from hiking, exploring and fishing to boating, swimming and hunting are still fresh in my memory and hopefully you can experience some of these as well!

Guy LaGuire purchased this house in 2008

Why Guy LaGuire chose Northern Michigan

I bought this home because Northern Michigan has so much to offer in it's beauty, activities and peacefulness. If there is a heaven on earth this area is it for me! And, hey...I live in Hawaii so that's saying something.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to Crystal Lake and all conveniences in downtown Beulah and short driving distances to many of the attractions in the area including Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes (recently rated the #1 vacation destination on the continental USA on Good Morning America. All kinds of lakes and rivers to boat, fish, ski, or Kayak. Many great golf courses all around the area including Arcadia Bluffs, Champion Hills, Mistwood and more. Morning or evening walks in and around the downtown Beulah area with family and friends make for a relaxing atmosphere that vacations are meant to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for an unforgettable week! We had a blast! The house was ideal for us with plenty of space to move around and not be cramped. Beulah is centrally located and no more than 15 minutes to Frankfort and Lake Michigan. And with Crystal Lake just 1 1/2 blocks away it was an added bonus. The weather was amazing.

We will definitely be back and will recommend this place to our friends!

Happy travelers

  • 4 of 5

The Crystal Manor was a good choice for our family. The village of Buelah was a nice town and a good centralized point for our daily activities. We enjoyed the Betsie Valley trail, the beach and the relaxing atmosphere of the town.

The house was nice and was exactly what we expected after talking with the owner. I enjoyed my phone conversation with Guy and our exchange of e-mails kept me well informed during the entire rental process.

We missed the comfort of our A/C on a few hot nights and the strength of the wi/fi could of been better. But overall our stay was enjoyable and would consider staying at the Crystal Manor next year.

Great spot! Walking distance to Crystal Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the cottage. It is nestled in the perfect location, walking distance to downtown Beulah with shops, restaurants, and a small beach on Crystal Lake. We were very pleased overall with the cottage and layout. The kitchen could have some upgrades but for renting for a week it has more than enough kitchen utensils and cooking supplies. Loved having a small yard area to let our small children play and the fire pit to roast some marshmallows!! Thanks for the wonderful stay!!!! The family goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable but also provide you space so you are able to just relax in Northern Michigan.

I was so happy to have stayed (3 weeks) at Crystal Manor during my first trip to Michigan. The location is very convenient whether it was a walk to town, a stroll by the lake or a run/bike on scenic Betsie Valley Trail. The newly upgraded furniture, kitchenware and flatscreen TV made our stay even more comfortable. The extra large yard and campfire pit is great for relaxing outdoors right on the property. The owner and property manager were very personable and attentive. We're already planning our next trip to Crystal Manor to enjoy the fall colors again this year!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year renting this location and it never gets old. The city is fantastic and the cottage has everything you could ask for. The double lot with its fire pit made it the perfect place to enjoy the evenings. Looking forward to many many years of renting this cottage. Just a seamless transaction from the time we arrived until the day we unfortunately had to go back to reality.

The location to town makes the home a perfect place. No car is needed to get into town and do some shopping or have a nice dinner at one if the restaurants.

Highly recommend this place for any person or family looking to get away.
