About Owner

We truly enjoy the 'up north feel' and ambience of Crystal Mountain. Secluded, beautiful and tons of stuff to do. I am second generation owner at Crystal and can help you out with any questions you may have. Thanks for thinking of us for your stay.

Why Owner chose Northern Michigan

Our family has been going to Crystal Mountain since the mid 70's. It is a special place that continues to improve every year. There is truly a sense of family and relaxation at Crystal. Come to our chalet and experience it yourself.

What makes this chalet unique

Close enough to everything Crystal has to offer, yet far enough to have a relaxed stay for that 'up north' experience. Use of Crystal Mountain shuttle service; available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Nice, quiet place very close to mountain.

Spent two nights in August for a girls weekend celebrating my daughter's upcoming wedding. It was clean and had everything we needed. I was little concerned about not having air conditioning in August, but it was perfectly fine, shaded and with the windows open it was great, perfect. Thanks Joe!

exceptional weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place for groups, couples, families, and friends. This place is beyond my expectations. The location was easy to find, communication with the owner was quick and easy, and the chalet home is beautiful/homey/clean/spacious. There is free wifi, parking for 3 cars, 2 1/2 bath, a Jacuzzi (we didn't use), an outside grill, and pretty much everything we needed to cook/clean/etc. We had 10 people in our group and this was a very last minute booking(inquire the week before). I really appreciate that he gave us first choice to stay as he had other people wanting to stay the same weekend. Thank you! We didn't get to enjoy what Crystal Mountain has to offer because our plans was to see Sleeping Bear Dunes (30 mins drive) but I definitely look forward to coming back to this place in the future.

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from two fun nights at Out-n-About Chalet (two adults, 3 teens and a child.) There was more than enough room for all of us and it would be very comfortable for an even larger group. It's a brisk walk or an easy drive to the lifts and located on a beautiful, quiet cul-de-sac. The chalet itself has every amenity you could need and is very cozy and welcoming. The skiing was great and it was awesome to come back to the chalet for dinner and a roaring fire. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

Great space for a clan!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Out-n-About Chalet. It was a bit further than a 5 minute walk to Buck lift with children and in ski boots, but not a big deal to drive up to the lifts - less than 2 minutes away! The layout of the chalet is very accommodating for a multi-families. We love the natural fireplace! We would recommend updating the bedding, linens and some of the kitchen tools. Thanks for a great stay and a very reasonable price. We hope to be back as we LOVE Crystal Mountain.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at the chalet. It is in a very quiet location, yet close enough to all amenities of the resort. The chalet was very spacious and clean. What a great location for our travel needs.....we were within a short distance to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City and the Pine River canoe liveries. We were very happy with our stay.
