Perfect Central Location for Day Trips

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were greeted with a very tidy, open concept spacious home that easily sleeps 12 as advertised and a covered deck for outdoor eating and relaxing. The trust idea of "use and replace" what's there was evident by previous guests, just bring your food and shop for what you use or consume. The location was great to access the public beach, short drives to the dunes, hiking trails, restaurants, fishing and cherry picking areas. There was so much to keep us occupied the TV was never turned "on". Our family motto is leave it how you found it so in about an hour the floors were swept, carpeted areas vacuumed and some dishes were being washed as we drove down the road. Oh, we live in Michigan with 3 U of M "Go Blue" graduated grandchildren so we chose to be good spirited sports fans as the owners live in Ohio and claim to be "Buckeye" supporters. If we chose to vacation in this area in the future, this home would be a first choice.

We really liked the house, very big, a lot of space , very nice with children to play, a lot of amenities and very well equipped ( all you would find at your own house, even more !), great location just close to the lake and not far from ski and snowmobile. We will love to come back !!!!

House was great, driveway was a challenge!

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful. It's exactly as described and had everything needed to stay for several days. The location was great too. The only things I could possibly say that needs improved is the smell of the water. On day one it was terrible but by day four it was much better. I'm assuming it hadn't been run in awhile. The driveway was a challenge with snow and multiple cars but we made it work. Overall it was a perfect family home for the holidays...especially the fireplace.

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our rather large group. Enough room for everyone to hang out and relax on the large patio. House was in great shape and I would absolutely return if I need to go back to the area.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake hoise was amazing and was in the prrfect location to relax and enjoy ourselves. It was the perfect distance from the lake as well. The moment that i walked in the doors i loved it, so warm and cozy and exceptionally taken care of. There were many amenities that this home had as well as the Crystal Lake region. This was my families first experience at Crystal Lake, and i can say that we will be going back for sure.

The unscreened porch was nice, the grill was not working, however, my brothers are mechanics, so they fixed it and it worked fine after that. The cleaning company needs to be replaced! The wood floors throughout the lower level look clean, however, I don't think they have been washed in a very long time, literally our bare feet were black from just walking inside, not even on the deck! The steep parking might be challenging for some, as well as the walk down the hill to the beach. We visited both beaches and they were nice. The big local beach had a very nice sandy bottom, however, the beach at the bottom of the hill (700 ft.) was very rocky and you could not walk in the water. The washing machine is old and does not clean clothes very well. If you just plan on hanging out in the house and not going anywhere then this could be the place? Also, the garage floors had not been swept. One thing I could recommend to the owners is that they should give the renters access to a vacuum and a broom. There is no yard to the property either, so no place to hang out outside unless you want to sit in the strep driveway or garage.
