Why Fletcher and Nancy Johnson chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Northern Michigan has been a favorite summer get-away for years! Once our kids were old enough to enjoy snow sports, it became a favorite winter retreat as well! Crystal Mountain is the perfect location for our vacation condo! We can enjoy snow sports, golf, and close proximity to the treasured Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore!

What makes this condo unique

In the heart of Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa, our condo is extremely convenient to activities. 5 minute walk to slopes, spa, and golf clubhouse, restaurants, and more.

Comfortable & Convenient with an Affordable Price and Flexible Scheduling

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the heart of Crystal Mountain surrounding the outdoor and indool pools, rock climbing wall, zip line, fitness center, spa, restaurants, slopes, etc. and has the benefit of being close to Crystal Lake, Frankfort and Beulah. The condo was clean and cozy upon arrival.

We had a sound issue after arriving after midnight which kept us from falling asleep. We grudgingly contacted Nancy around 1:45 am and she not only answered the phone, she was determined to help us find a solution to mitigate the problem....and she followed through. The resort told Nancy the problem was solved, but on night 2 the noise resumed around 2 am. We called Nancy the next morning, talked through the issue and within a short few hours the issue had been resolved. Not only were the owners attentive to our needs and understanding that we were on vacation, they were dedicated to finding a solution for us. I highly recommend this condo not only due to location, cleanliness, price and flexible scheduling options (you can rent nightly vs. weekly), but also knowing the owners are phenomenal and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best stay possible.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura and Jesse: Thank you for the kind words. We can't express how appreciative we are of your graciousness during the process of figuring out what the mystery-noise was that awoke you! Our first priority was for you and your family to have a wonderful time at the resort and for you all to thoroughly enjoy your stay. So, having said that, we were happy to work to find a solution! :) You both were very kind throughout the process and we appreciate the extra investigative work you did to help the Resort staff isolate the noise outside of the condo and ultimately fix it! We hope to welcome you back soon!

Nice layout and view and location but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Mainly kitchen and bath need updating. Housekeeping left a bit to be desired. Vacuumed when we got there as bits of food and paper here and there. Also had to sweep front porch and deck of debris. Ladies shoes left in closet!

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth: Thank you for taking the time to review our condo. We feel badly that the house-cleaning was not up to snuff! We will certainly communicate your feedback to our team. We keep as many up to date photos on our website, as possible to accurately depict the accommodations. Some fun news: we actually have some plans in the works to make some updates to the bathroom. A fall project! Hope to welcome you back and we hope you enjoyed your stay. Thank you again for the review.

Perfect for the Price

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great and perfect size for my family of three. The place was cleaned and offered everything we needed. It was in walking distance to everything Crystal Mountain offered and the owners were quick to reply and be as helpful as they could be. My only reason for not giving it a perfect score was the parking was tricky, not always a space in front of the condo, the shower leaked and shower tile was pretty gross (I hate that when I am showering), and we seriously could not figure out the dishwasher. With those very minor issues we would stay at this place again. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Eliza: Thank you for taking time to write a review! I am glad you and your family enjoyed the condo and resort. We try hard to keep it well stocked with items any guest may need. Summer is a busy time up there- so our apologies for not always having a parking spot in front! That happens to us once in a while too. I'm disappointed to hear that the shower was not sparkly clean! We will review this feedback with our housekeeping crew! We are actually planning some updates to the bathroom this fall- so stay tuned! Thanks again! We hope to welcome you back to the condo soon! Best Regards!
