|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Come stay within a short walking distance to the slopes of the #1 rated ski resort in the Midwest. This three bedroom, two bath tri-level home located in the Crystal Mountain Resort complex provides an outstanding location for all your year round, Northern Michigan activities. The home was built by renown ski instructor Bud Abbey, whom the Abbey Road ski run was named after. Many of the features were handcrafted by Bud including cabinets, coffee and side tables, and the entertainment center. This tri-level sleeps four adults and two children comfortably on two full beds and a daybed with pull out trundle bed underneath, with the option of sleeping more on the Hide-A-Bed Sofa in the living room and available blowup mattresses.
Amenities inside this rental include a fully equipped kitchen; cable television and DVD player in living area; gas fireplace; whirlpool jet tub; and washer and dryer. Outside features a large deck with gas grill and two car garage for storage of your ski, golf and other recreational equipment.
Crystal Mountain is a four season, family oriented resort that offers great downhill and cross-country skiing along with a terrain park for winter activities. There are two 18 hole golf courses, a water park with climbing wall, alpine slide, and bike/walking trails available in the summer. Also visit the Michigan Legacy Art Park, a sculpture park that 'combines an experience of art, nature and history'. Year round you can enjoy the spa and fitness center with indoor pool, along with resort restaurants.
Off the complex you can enjoy fishing/hunting, canoeing/kayaking, snowmobiling, wine tasting at the local wineries, or shopping and dining in the many quaint towns. Frankfort and the Lake Michigan shoreline are only 20 minutes away, or you could reach Traverse City for the Cherry Festival, or the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore in less than an hour. There is plenty to do here, but if you prefer, the quiet and laid back atmosphere of the area will help you to just sit back, unwind and relax during your vacation. Whatever you choose to do, we are sure you will enjoy your stay at Abbey Road.
From the moment we walked in it felt comfortable. The house is set up perfectly and had everything you could need. We even baked Christmas cookies with the granddaughters. It's so close to everything. We walked to the carriage ride which was so much fun and stopped afterwards to have hot cocoa and marshmallows at the bonfire. Oh yeah, the skiing was great too.
The house was clean well stocked and nicer than the pictures.Would definitely stay again.thank you
Nice setting, clean as a whistle, plenty of room (there were four adults), everything you need for your stay provided.
We needed a quiet place near Crystal Mountain for a girls' getaway. The Abbey Road house was perfect. It was very clean and serene. The two of us each had our own bathroom, which was convenient. The price was reasonable compared to similar properties. We highly recommend this great rental house.
Just wanted to let you know how much we loved our stay at your cottage. Gorgeous area, plenty of space, comfy beds, well stocked with everything you could ask for and so comfortable. The bathtub was really nice, but a shower would have been even better in the master bath. The instructions you left were perfect! Everything was even better than described. So glad we had GPS. How can they have one long road with four different names! Not being used to the area, it seemed were heading into the middle of no where!! We grocery shopped in Traverse City and had a lot of meals at the cottage, including BBQ on the beautiful deck two nights and there is a nice convenience store nearby. Not a lot of places to eat in the area, but the ones that were there; Geno's (ribs), Rosie's (great breakfast) and Thistle Bar and Grill (trout, hamburger, rock steak and must have tangerine bing cherry sorbet) were all wonderful. We would recommend your wonderful home to anyone. The arrangements and communication with you was great. Please feel free to post this. Thanks again.!
Our family of 2 adults and 5 children took our first trip to Crystal Mountain and chose this house because the price was less than staying at CM Inn even with free skiing included at the inn. We loved being a one-two minute drive to the ski resort! Being able to cook our own meals (they had all of the little food items and all cooking accessories we could needed) was a plus. The scenery at this culdesac home was lovely. Two cable TVs, fun games, and classic movies made our family time even more special. The owner and manager were so easy to work with. All towels and linens in two bathrooms and three bedrooms made travel for our family of 7 a breeze. What a nice offer for us to make skiing with a big family more possible. Thank you, Abbey Road!
