Crystal Lake Cottage-Sleeps 12

This is a four bedroom, 2 bath cottage that sits right on the water of Crystal Lake. It's on the most coveted street on the lake. It's very quiet and because of how the property sits on the lake, there is no seaweed! It's all sand in the water by our dock. Between the panoramic view from the living room next to the stone fireplace to the view from the grill on the deck, this cottage is sure to delight even the hardest of hearts. If you want to turn off your cell phone, relax and float away that stress, you've found your summer memory maker-look no further.

Crystal Lake is a spring-fed, clean/clear lake with a sandy bottom. The lake is 70 foot deep at it's maximum, but is shallow on the lake shores and has one buoy-marked rock in the southeast section of the lake. The lake supports a mixed use of sail, power, and fishing activities from late March through late November.

Sailing on the lake is supported by the Crystal Sailing Club. Established in 1961, the CSC is a family centered working club which supports a Flying Scot fleet. The club is located on the North shore of the lake. The most common classes of sailboats found on the lake are Flying Scots, Sunfish, and some larger cruiser type boats (to about 25'). Public access to Crystal Lake can be made via a DNR boat launch. The best time to view sailing activities are during the Parade of Sails on July 4th, during Flying Scot fleet activities, and during Crystal Sailing Club functions as per their website.

The preceeding information was graciously provided by Mr. James Horak, Commodore of the Crystal Sailing Club.

About Lake Cottage Group, LLC

The current owners consist of five families who use this home as their summer cottage.

Lake Cottage Group, LLC purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Lake Cottage Group, LLC chose Western Michigan

The current owners grew up going to a country cottage they all called 'The Ranch.' It was very rustic with no indoor plumbing and a wood stove for cooking. The Ranch originally belonged to their great grandfather Mary and James Edward Rowse. Great Grandpa Jim actually traded the store he and Mary owned in Oil City, Michigan for the Ranch which belonged to his cousins. When he passed, it was handed down to his three sons Arnold, Dutch, and Gale. When non-family members used to stay at The Ranch, they were charged $3 for the weekend to help off-set oil and supply costs. People aged and time passed too quickly before family could organize to buy it. The Ranch was sold and children and grandchildren for years longed for those wonderful times that created such good memories.

In search of that special place, the current cottage owners camped for years. They were introduced to the Fenwick's, another family on Crystal Lake years ago by the eldest of three brothers. All the siblings were invited to stay with the family every summer along with their spouses and children and did so for years. One sister, and three brothers began to expand their own families and thought it might be time to search for something they could call their own. One day, while staying on the lake, one of the brothers went for a walk a street over from where they were staying at the Fenwick’s and ran into an older gentleman that was putting a for sale sign in the yard. The excitement began as two brothers developed a deep relationship with the gentleman. The idea was shared with the rest of the family and soon they all came together to call this their summer cottage. The older gentleman wanted to know that his cottage and the memories would continue to be shared. As our Great Grandparents Jim and Mary shared The Ranch with their sons, and our Grandparents Arnold and Evelyn shared it with us to build memories with our families, we share this cottage with you and yours.

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed an extremely relaxing and comfortable stay. The location of the property was ideal for small children and pets and the cottage itself was fully stocked and very accommodating. Chad was very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. We have already recommended this property to family and friends and hope to make a return visit ourselves one day. Thank you so much for the use of your family cottage!

Regards,

The Keiffer's and the Smith's

P.S. Loved all the windows...perfect viewing for any type of weather!

Excellent Rental - We will return.....

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice cottage (home). It had everything we needed for a "family" getaway. We raised our family going to Crystal Lake in the summer and it was good to return with the grandkids. The cottage was very kid friendly. With parking for 5 or 6 cars and a fenced in lot it was a great place for the grandkids to play. The one lane paved street to the cottage is like a private drive with almost no traffic. The water is shallow enough and sandy enough for even the youngest (3 year olds) to enjoy. 4 Large bedrooms provided ample space to unpack and the beds were comfortable. The living and dining areas were also spacious. The 2 large bathrooms and shower were nice also. Very good instructions for arrival and departure were there for renters to follow. Our time was enjoyable and good memories were made!

Beautiful Spot

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Crystal Lake. It was a beautiful lake and a very comfortable cottage for 12 people. The lake had a sandy bottom and was crystal clear. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed. Our kids and grandkids had a very memorable week. Thank you for letting us stay in your cottage. We hope to be back next year!!
