Wonderful family "retreat". Spaceous, comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 (grandparents, and two families with children 5, 8 and 9) had a wonderful, relaxing week here. This home is very well equipped with a very clean and fully supplied kitchen for any sort of cooking, outdoor grill fully ready with charcoal; bedrooms large and very comfortable; a game room that is great fun for the times we werent outside enjoying the sun, beach, hikes and biking. Tons of games, puzzles, etc., a bike trail right at the end of the driveway that extends 7 miles in one direction to Frankfort, and 1.5 miles in the other direction to Beulah. The trail to Frankfort is absolutely beautiful--woods, along a river, partially paved etc.

Lots of beach toys; badmiton, volley ball; we rented kayak and paddle board which added to the water fun. Very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes and great opportunities there.

We highly recommend this home. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Wonderful home, perfect location, great hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week for a family vacation with 12 people, covering four families and three generations. Everyone had a great time. The house is clean, large and comfortable. The game room with the Ping-Pong and air hockey tables was a big hit. Crystal Lake is beautiful, with calm, clear, shallow water perfect for swimming. You can also have a campfire right on the beach. There is volleyball and badminton on the grassy area in front of the beach. There is no kayak available, but there is a rental place nearby. The hostess, Audrey, was very helpful, along with other members of her family. Her brother Mark started a fire for us one night when we made s'mores. And her sister-in-law took family photos of us, so we could all be in the photos. Also, the property is only about 20 minutes from the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Recommended during your visit: hiking Old Indian Trail and Empire Bluffs Trail, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, tubing Lower Platte River with Riverside Canoe Trips, Point Betsie Lighthouse for sunset, the Dune Climb, villages of Glen Arbor and Frankfort, and the Art/Sculpture Walk at Crystal Mountain Resort. ... I cannot believe I am the first person to write a review for this place.
