About David Balsam
We are a family of four with two kids from the Grand Haven area and always look forward to our stays at the Lemon Lodge. We love northern Michigan and all that it has to offer and explore! Our family is very active and we ski Crystal, kayak the Betsie, mountain bike the Crystal trails and often make day trips to the local beaches and towns that are close by. If you have any questions on what there is to do in the area, don't be shy as we can give you a list!
David Balsam purchased this House in 2017
Why David Balsam chose Thompsonville
We purchased this property because it is just outside the resort and down the road. So close for the activities that Crystal has to offer, but we still have our own private place with a nice wooded lot away from it all. Very convenient for running back and forth from resort for lunch, dinner or breaks in between activities. We also liked that this house has a large spacious floor plan all on one level. Great for little kids and older people that do not enjoy the up and down of stairs. The house being newer also has many upgrades that you will appreciate, including custom hardwood floors, farmhouse bath sink, granite tiled island and A/C.
What makes this House unique
The outside "lodge look" drew us in from the road. The house was built in 2014 so everything is solid and newer. Beautifully hand-crafted by the builder. House also has A/C which is rare around the area. We also found it unique in how the layout gives two family rooms and can be separated by a sound deadening drape if some of the group wants more privacy or piece and quiet from the rest.

Beautiful House & Great Location!
Our family and relatives stayed here for an early Thanksgiving vacation getaway. We had 12 in our group. The Lemon Lodge was fantastic! We were amazed at how well stocked the house was. We needed nothing! Very clean house with plenty of towels and linens, pillows, etc. and the kitchen had everything we needed for a great Thanksgiving meal. Everyone loved the layout of the house and the huge kitchen/family room area. The back family room was great for games and gave some privacy from the rest of the group. We ran to Crystal Mountain for dinner one night, visited Iron Fish Distillery and St. Ambrose Cellars. All of this is minutes from the house. Overall the house and stay exceeded our expectations and we have stayed at many VRBO homes in the past. Highly recommend this house if you are looking for a great stay and the owner is excellent to deal with and was proactive on getting helpful info to us ahead of time. We will be back!
We loved our stay at the Lemon Lodge! Three families stayed very comfortably with two kids who loved the bunk beds. We enjoys the well stocked kitchen, clean cute rooms and the fire pit out back. It was fun to zip over to the river and the alpine slide at Crystal Mountain. We will stay again!
Had a wonderful girls weekend at the Lemon Lodge with all my nieces, sisters and cousin. The home was warm and inviting, in the perfect location for our outside activities. I would recommend this place to anyone and would enjoy renting home myself again.
Fabulous accommodations great owner to work with.
5 star rating all the way.
We had a wonderful stay at the Lemon Lodge. The house was wonderful and bigger than expected. The owner David was quick to respond and very attentive. I would definitely rent this house again!!!!😊
