Great Place to stay conveniently located for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place and we had plenty of room for the 6 of us. When we did have questions the response time was quick, just not knowing if the grill was filled when asked was a little uneasy since we hated to purchase food and then have to go back and fill the tank too. One suggestion, an upgrade on the sheets in the bunk rooms as well as the padding on the beds they were a little on the thinner side and just looked worn out. Overall we enjoyed the place and would be happy to return to this area.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely, cozy cabin for a week in August. It was myself, my husband, 25 year old son and 9 year old daughter. We had the time of our lives. Perfect location to take a different day trip somewhere each day. We went to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, Manistee, Frankfort, and drove down beautiful M-22. Swan at different beaches, water was so clean and warm. It was so nice each day to come home to such a nice, clean, comfortable cabin and chill and watch the Olympics each night. This cabin has so much room, everyone had their own space. We also enjoyed the restaurants and amenities at Crystal Mountain. We bought the day pass and used and abused it. LOL We swam, hiked, climbed the rock wall, did the obstacle course up high and the alpine slide about 20 times. Great restaurants and conveniences, all within walking distance. My son also golfed and said it was great. Also loved having the washer and dryer to clean up the beach towels each day. Have to admit, we ate out a lot so didn't take advantage of the well stocked kitchen, but did use the coffee pot and toaster each morning. The owner, Dush, is so easy to communicate with, and made booking our vacation so easy. He always responded very quickly to any of my questions. If you want a perfect place to relax, this cabin is it! Can't wait to go back in the winter and ski here. We are hooked Dush!!

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.

Owner's Response: We took your comments to heart and renovated our cottage. It now has 2 separate bedrooms upstairs. They both have doors with locks and no longer open to the living space down stairs. Thank you for your thoughtful advice.
