There are two 18-hole golf courses on property with a full practice facility. Steps from the condo is the Mountain Top private pool, grill, picnic, and fire pit area. At the bottom of the mountain there are two full service restaurants, a water park, climbing wall, tennis courts, alpine slide, paint ball course, bike and hiking trails, and many adventures for the entire family.

This must be a dream!

  • 5 of 5

Walk out of front door, turn left, walk 20 feet, put on skies and ski away; really that simple. Condo great for 1 or 2 families. Local towns have great small breakfast greasy spoons. Drive from Chicago is 5 hours.

True Ski In/Ski Out

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Crystal Mountain nearly every year for the past 10 years. We have stayed in several of the Mountaintop properties, as well as the hotels. The Mountaintop properties are truly the best! All the Mountaintop homes have the basic same décor, but this one has the added extras, such as non-stick pans, good knives, salon products in the bathrooms, games for the kids, etc. The bedding in the rooms are perfect for 2 families, a room for the kids with twins and 2 rooms with Queen/King bed for the two sets of parents. The layout of the beds in the kids room still keeps the room plenty spacious. What we like most though, is this is a true ski in/ski out condo. Many places claim to be ski in/out but when you arrive it simply is not. There is a trail on the side of the home which takes you down to the backside of the mountain, and then you can take lift back up and directly back to the condo. This trail was not opened for 1 of the days of our visit (we had just gotten a lot of snow and the trail had not yet been groomed) so we did have to walk just a few feet to get on to the trails that day, but it was just between the homes that were 2 doors down, and minimal (if you are an avid skier you probably could have ski down on the ungroomed trail). We would definitely stay here again!! Thanks Lori.

Great Northern Michigan ski condo

  • 5 of 5

We have been skiing with our kids for over two decades at Rocky Mountain resorts as well as another spot in Michigan. This is one of the best vacation condos we've stayed in. The place is large and well laid out for privacy, with master bedroom and bath, including jacuzzi, on the top floor, and two bedrooms for younger folk on the bottom floor. The main floor is elegant yet informal and welcoming. It was sparkling clean, and we felt comfortable and at home immediately.

Some of the highlights:

--Anyone who has tried to cook in one of those kitchens with one tiny pot for cooking noodles and knives that can barely slice butter would appreciate this kitchen, which is well stocked with pots and pans, even a real pasta cooker, plenty of mugs and dishes, a really collection of cooking utensils including great knives and a kitchen shears, even a grind-and-brew coffee maker.

--The views are wonderful (can't wait to book it for a fall color stay).

--Truly ski-in and ski-out, very convenient for that.

--Very high quality appliances.

Also comes with free wi-fi (pretty standard these days, the connection was fast and strong), a few games and books.

Booking was straightforward and easy with Lori, and it was easy to get in touch with her when I needed advice while grocery shopping. We had planned to go to the Thistle restaurant, but the kitchen was so nice and we liked the condo so much we ended up eating in every night.

We were fortunate to have good snow, but I noted that in the guest book someone said that even though they were skiing on all man-made snow, it was still great. Michigan skiing isn't mountain skiing, but Crystal is very well laid out and fun, with a couple steep ridges that challenged the experts.

I would recommend this place to anyone for a fun ski week, and we would definitely like to return in the fall.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in the Mountain Top Condo. It was absolutely perfect! The home is beautiful and has all the quality touches. My husband said, you can tell the owner must love to cook, because all the untensils, knives and pans are nice quality. The beds and bedding are very comfortable, and even the shower has Crystal spa toiletries and big fluffy towels. It was spacious, yet cozy---we especially loved the fireplace when we came in from skiing. We have stayed in several locations at Crystal Mountain, and Mountain Top is now our favorite. To ski in and out of your front door was perfect! It was so nice to come in for a quick cup of hot cocoa, or be the first one down the mountain at 9 am. The owner, Lori, was so kind and pleasant. She really goes above and beyond to make your stay special.
