The condo had everything we needed and was well apportioned. We had a great time skiing with perfect weather, and a great place to sleep, eat, and relax. The owner was helpful and easy to work with.

Just right for us

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came to Crystal Mountain to attend a wedding and rented this condo for two days. The owner was helpful, informative and quick to respond to our inquiries. The condo itself was clean, well kept and had more than adequate room for the two of us. My only comment would be that anyone using the loft bedroom would want to know that it is open to the downstairs area making the sound from the kitchen/living area heard pretty easily. It was our first time visiting Crystal Mountain and we found the resort to be very well run, friendly, and would be a beautiful place to visit at any time of year.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This Condo in the center of the resort provided our family of 5 with a fabulous family vacation experience. The home is located within easy driving distance to other Lake Michigan attractions. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and the Scenic drive is simply amazing and short 40 min drive from the resort. The home was well equipped with kitchen supplies and utensils. The layout of the home, its furnishings, and general accommodations made our stay all the more enjoyable. Alpine slides, the mountain bike trails, outdoor pool with a climbing wall. evening camp fires..there was never a dull moment. We did not make use of the golf facilities, but the 2 golf courses right on the resort were very well maintained. Plenty of wildlife could be seen and heard right at your door step. WE will be back for Skiing in the winter time. I would highly recommend this home.
