The Beach House is a turn-of-the-century, twenty-room home that was used as a boarding house for young college women working in the large luxury hotels of the lumbering era in Northwestern Michigan. The charm remains with quaint living rooms, individual kitchens and bathrooms in each of the six living quarters. There are 4 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom units which are rented together, making it ideal for a family gathering!
Each place includes a flat screen TV with built in DVD, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, and electric range. There is a common picnic area and gas grills on the side lawn and a shared deck on the second floor overlooking the lake. If you have a special request, ask to see if we can accommodate it.
The house is located within feet of the east end of Crystal Lake, between the children's playground and boat launch on Beulah's town beach. The bike trail that connects Thompsonville and Frankfort is just around the corner.
There are also several restaurants and shops in this quaint community. If you are ready for more exploring, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Point Betsie, Frankfort, and Elberta Beach are all within a short drive.
Hope you enjoy your time, regardless of where you stay!
Weekly rentals are from 4:00 p.m. Saturday through 10:00 a.m. Saturday the following week.
After Memorial Day, any remaining weeks not yet rented will be available for reservation for shorter stays (2 night minimum).
I grew up in Frankfort, but have lived 40 miles outside of New York City for the past 25 years. I have never missed a summer in Northern Michigan, and my wife and I now bring our kids to enjoy the laid back life this area offers.
Nancy and Scott Bradley purchased this house in 2013
We bought this place sight unseen! I knew the location (on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world), the town (quaint little shops and next to the Rails to Trails entrance), and the area, but hadn't seen the inside of the house. When I finally saw the place first hand, I couldn't believe what an awesome place it was. With 6 separate units, it's perfect for large groups that want to be together for vacation, but not living on top of each other. It suits our family perfectly, and I think it will suit yours as well.
The water quality of Crystal Lake is incredible, drawing us to Michigan each summer. This house is on the beach, but also in the middle of town! Easy access to explore Northwestern Michigan.
Our family stayed at another rental offered by the owners of the Beach House. (The "South Shore Home", (find it at crystallakerentals.net) This is a wonderful large home on the South Shore of Crystal Lake. Although our family has stayed at the Beach House for over 20 years, we needed something a little larger and "all in one unit". The South Shore House fits the bill exactly. Lot's of living space for playing board games, excellent location for launching a boat and great for walking or biking right out the door on South Shore Drive East.
We had a wonderful time and look forward to staying there again in the future.
Our Group of 17, 9 adults and 8 kids really enjoyed our stay at the beach house. It was very conveniently located to the beach. The fishing dock & boat ramp was a very short walking distance away. The age range of kids was 9 months to 12 yrs old. It was nice that everyone had their own space yet we could all be in one area and enjoy the company. Frankfort, Traverse city and Sleeping Bear Dunes were all within an easy drive. It was clean & had all the essentials in the individual kitchens. Great view of Crystal Lake!
We had a perfect stay with the kids, across from the beach with colorful sunsets, large deck with breeze and views. Location perfect for the outdoor concert, art show, shops and food. Short drive to Frankfort for excellent dinners and bakery and Lake Michigan beaches and an easy trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes and more. Next time we will take in a movie at the Cherry Bowl Drive In!
Excellent location for our family to enjoy Beulah, MI and Crystal Lake! Very clean accommodations with plenty of space for us. Close to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Cherry Bowl drive-in very close for a fun night with the kids. We will definitely try and stay here again if we make it back. Thank you!!
My family had not been on a vacation in 15 yrs. Earlier this year, my daughter started searching for the resort my used in the 1960's. She found that resort and the Beach House. The Beach House was able to accommodate 9 adults and 6 children. Scott provided accurate details and our stay was great! We went to Frankfort and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. The kitchens were well stocked with everything you need. All of my family highly recommends the Beach House.
Charming home right on Crystal Lake, separate adjoining apartments allow family and friends to enjoy each others company as well as moments of privacy at the same time. Walking distance to Charming town of Beulah with only a 10 min drive to beautiful downtown Frankfort. Great Fishing, Boating, Swimming, Sightseeing, Highly recommended!!!! Great time for kids as and adults of all ages!!!!
The Beach House is located downtown in the Village of Beulah, making it a perfect place for the family. The youngest will play all day on the beach, giving the teenagers a little freedom to walk for lunch, and allowing the parents and grandparents to enjoy the beautiful views from the second floor deck. Gas grills and picnic tables make for a great place to congregate around meal time.
The Beach House is about 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dune climb, 10 minutes to Lake Michigan Beaches, 40 minutes to Traverse City. Several golf courses within 10 minutes for those days when you can pull yourself away from the lake. Lots of places to see and explore the beauty of Northwestern Michigan!
