Super ski cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific cottage! It is nicely laid out with plenty of room for the 6 of us to spread out. The kitchen has lots of counter and cupboard space and is stocked with the dishes, pans and utensils you would need. It is a short walk to the Buck lift. The unit was clean and very well maintained.

Great location, close to slopes

  • 5 of 5

Third time we've stayed - perfect location for skiers! House is super clean and was recently updated. Plenty of room for our group of 6 adults. Love the Thistle restaurant just up the street at the base of the Buck lift.

Great location to slopes!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this cottage for our annual family ski trip. Great location to slopes and amenities at Crystal Mountain, and plenty of space for a family of 6. Owner is easy to reach and responds quickly to emails. Home is clean and well maintained. Our group enjoyed skiing, the spa and a wonderful meal at the Thistle.

Great Place. Lots to do

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with two other couples in July. It was great! There is so much to do at the resort, but we spent most of our time in traverse city. We also visited the Sleeping Bear sand dunes. We were only there for 2 full days and 3 would have been perfect. The cottage was great for the 6 of us. The kitchen was a nice size and there was a lot of seating in the living room. nice bathrooms and everything was clean when we arrived. I was also pleasantly surprised that paper towel, toliet paper, soap and shampoo were already there. (My first time using VRBO). There was not a grill that I believe was listed in the property description. The resort was nice with indoor and outdoor pools. Everyone enjoyed the alpine slides. There were at least two weddings when we were there and it seemed like a couple family reunions. Very nice place for anyone to go to. We plan on staying again in the future.

Always a blast!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a great place to vacation. This is our second year in a row and we look forward to next year! The cottage is very clean, cute, and supplied. Perfect layout for adults and kids. The kids love the loft area. Would also be perfect for several couples. The location could not be better. Very short walking distance to Buck chair lift and all the great facilities at Crystal. Thank you Annie for your quick response to inquiries as well. Thanks again.
