About Crystal

My name is Crystal. I was born and raised in Northern Michigan and I truly believe there is no place like home. I enjoy traveling and exploring new things. In my free time, you can find me outdoors; side x side riding, kayaking, snowmobiling and snowmobiling. I hope you enjoy Northern Michigan as much as I do. <3

Crystal purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. Great for families - lots of space, well-equipped kitchen, swing set, and plenty of play room. Tranquil setting that was a lovely compliment to downtown Harbor Springs a short drive away. Crystal was a very attentive, accommodating host and I would definitely recommend her place to anyone looking for a relaxing Northern Michigan escape.

3 generations of family together for the 4th

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean. There is a deer feeder and plenty of hummingbird feeders to enjoy nature . We hadn't been to MI in 30 years. It was fantastic to have the family under one roof. We enjoyed lake Michigan and Huron, drives to Mackinac island, and touch football in the yard.

Great winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great winter vacation in this large home. Lots of room for everyone and their belongings. We went to ski and snowmobile. Nubs nob was just a quick 10 min drive. We were able to ride the snowmobiles from the house to the snowmobile trails about a mile down the street. Crystal also allowed us to ride snowmobiles around the yard, which was a lot of fun for the younger kids that did not want to ride for too long. The house was clean and nicely decorated. The basement was a bit chilly to sleep in, but there were a ton of blankets available. Overall, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely consider renting this house again. Crystal was very easy to contact and answered all of our questions very quickly. Thanks so much for the awesome location!

Great place for vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Property Manager/Owner was very cooperative & polite. Check in processes was a pleasure, quick, efficient, friendly. Very efficient to get back and follow up. The House itself looks very nice. Parking Garage nice and big for cars or SUV.

Inside the first impression is positive. And once inside each corner, its really much more than just positive. All bedrooms very comfortable. Kitchen floor was well cleaned , All the bathrooms were nice & clean.

The location is great,we were able to enjoy being closer to the nature. Saw some Deers in the backyard.

The Big House is now our next vacation spot in upper Michigan. I would gladly suggest this place to any of my family & friends. All the positive experience.

Thanks a lot Crystal, really appreciate.

Beautiful home, wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely wonderful for a girls weekend getaway in Harbor Springs. The home is beautiful and had more than enough room for all 8 of us to stay comfortably. The home is decorated beautifully, the beds are very comfortable, and the yard is huge. We couldn't have asked for a better home or homeowner to work with.

Amazing Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

I came from Florida and wanted a place where I could vacation and get some relaxation but still have some fun. This house and location was perfect for me. The house was in immaculate shape, with a lot of space to feel comfortable. I would recommend this property to friends, family and anyone who wants to have the perfect vacation house. The owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with! Definitely will be coming back!

If you are looking for a home to rent in this area find something other than this location. We experienced problems from the beginning when the owner didn't return calls after sending a deposit we pulled up her address in Minnesota which turned out to be a foreclosed home. The house is in dreadful condition and all of the furniture is either broken or filthy dirty. The microwave did not work, the beds were on the floor, the dining room table broken and unusable, kitchen table broken and small dirty chairs, the front steps (concrete) are falling in and can't be used, the deck is an absolute mess, the yard in such bad condition that there were ants everywhere, the pull out couches are in poor repair and uncomfortable, and we could not even get her to provide us with a few more towels (she left 8 towels for 10 people, all over 60) and the house is at least ten - fifteen minutes from anywhere and there is absolutely no WiFi or cell service. We rent vacation homes several times per year for various gatherings and I have never had such an experience. We sent information to the owner and were simply told that she appreciated the information and we have not had any contact since. You are better off in a trailer than in this home!

Owner's Response: I do in fact, appreciate all feedback as I am always looking to improve how I can accommodate to all my guests. I have rented my home to several people and have had nothing but excellent reviews. I am sincerely sorry you feel this way in regards to my home. The condition of the home is exactly what is shown on the listing. I’m proud of this home and invite guests to experience it for themselves. The statement about the peeling paint on the deck is true. After a hard winter in Northern Michigan, the deck had signs of wear. The furniture in the home is always clean and is fairly new, some brand new, such as beds and pull out couches. An appropriate amount of supplied for all guests to insure they have a comfortable visit. The microwave did stop working during their visit as the GFI tripped. I offered to have someone come to the home and never heard back. The home is listed in the post as a country setting. A peaceful setting located 5 miles north of Harbor Springs. The address is provided for directions before renting. Downtown Harbor Springs is 6 miles from the house, approximately 8 minutes.There is GREAT cell phone service. Wifi is not an option, as the listing states. I invite you to experience my home for yourself. Thank you.
