Beulah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Beautiful Year Round Beulah Home with view of Crystal Lake! One Block to Crystal Lake Public Beach/Park and downtown Beulah. Several shops and restaurants as well as a bowling alley are just a short walk away. The Betsie Valley Trail, a 22 mile bike and hike trail from Thompsonville to Frankfort, runs right through town.

Beulah is a great central location for both winter and summer vacations. From skiing, snowmobiling, and skating to golfing, swimming, and fishing, it's all minutes away. Beulah is approximately thirty minutes to Traverse City, ten minutes to Lake Michigan and ten minutes to Crystal Mountain.

Wonderful winter get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent at the Almost Home rental property was wonderful. The cottage was lovely and spacious. All the amenities were well maintained. Owners provided excellent customer service! Everything was clean and updated. It is located in a lovely town but also very close to other communities. We would highly recommend this property!

X marks the spot / A river runs near it

  • 5 of 5

5 guys trying our best to catch some King salmon in the Betsie river. The house was perfect for us, the fishing not so much. It was unseasonably warm and the run was late. Plan B... Enjoy the house, weather, and the surrounding area. Being fishermen we knew to pack our other hobbies for when the bite was slow. This year we brought bikes and kayaks and man did we enjoy them.

The Betsie Valley Trail can be caught right down from "pass out" hill. You'll love flying down it (30mph+ on a bike!) but coming back up you'll know why we called it "pass out" hill. You'll either pass out or have to change your underwear. It's crazy steep, but tons of fun. We biked several days from Benzoinia to Frankfort. (20 miles round trip). The trail is nicely maintained and has great views of Crystal Lake and the Betsie River. Frankfort is a great town for people watching, shopping, or having a couple of cold brews (especially at StormCloud). They even have a bike rack! One guy in our group put 60 miles on his bike in a week.

The kayaking was equally impressive. Miles and miles of great water to explore. Easy ins and outs close to the house. It's hard to describe how quiet nature can be. It's really the reason we get away. Sure it's great to catch fish but standing immersed in clean cool water really recharges the batteries and erases stress. I highly recommend it.

We grilled everyday, had campfires, sat outside, and enjoyed the last remaining days of summer. The house was fantastic. All the comforts of home and more set inside the laid back, picturesque town, of Michigan's great up north.

Next year we'll be adding the boat and golf clubs and renting for a month (Just kidding ladies, or are we? :)

Nice vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed our stay very much and would love to return next year. My son, his wife and my three grandchildren came with us and we had plenty of room. The house had everything we needed for the week; linens, dishes, etc. No need to tote the kitchen supplies or linen closet - loved that! The cookware was clean and there was plenty of pots and pans. Most of the rooms had ceiling fans and the bathroom shower was great - plenty of hot water. Loved the washer/dryer because I didn't need to launder loads of laundry when we got home (shoudn't have packed as much as I did because it wasn't necessary). The house was less than a five minute walk down the hill to Crystal Lake (town/restaurants). It was about a 10 minute drive to Frankfort and a 30 minute drive to Traverse City. The weather wasn't the best during our week but there was plenty to do. I loved the bike path and the little city park down by the water. The kids rented paddle boards and had a blast. Overall a great vacation spot!

We stayed at Almost Home for the first time and were fully satisfied. The home was very clean and provided plenty of linens and towels and a fully functioning kitchen. The home owners were exceptional to work with. We loved the open floor plan and a nice, large dining table. The private elevated fire pit was a great added bonus. The beach in Beulah is walking distance away, sandy beach, and has spectacular views of Crystal Lake. You can pick up the Betsie River bike path easily from the home. Downtown Beulah is a cozy little town and enjoyable to walk around and shop. The cottage is an ideal location for going to Frankfort and even the sand dunes. We would look forward to renting this property again.

Fun Food and Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a lots of fun at the rental. Grandkids, daughter and us! Lots to do with games, books and TVs even on a rainy day. Loved the location and all that was provided in the home. Of course, the Cherry Hut was a favorite and other eateries. Nice walk to town and beach. Clean and ready for us - much appreciated:)

Nice home, very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus our two young boys stayed here for a quick weekend vacation. The house has a nice layout for kids, bunks and all, with plenty of living space for the family. Large kitchen with any pot, pan or utensil you could possibly need. Peek-a-boo view of Crystal Lake from a window in living room. Nice, private back patio and separate elevated fire pit area. We loved that downtown and the lake were only a few blocks away. We definitely reccommend this home and I'm sure we'll be back!
