On Shore Of Spectacular Lake


Home Description

The cottage has 70' of private frontage on one of Michigan's best lakes in the northwest section of the lower peninsula. Eight miles long. Excellent for fishing, skiing, kayaking, canoeing, and sailing. Great sunsets.

Google "crystal lake michigan" to see an abundance of pictures of the lake, some of them aerial shots that are spectacular.

The cottage is about 15' off the water. A small fishing boat and a paddle-boat are available at no extra charge.

The Betsie Valley Trail crosses the back of the lot. It is 22 miles long. One direction heads to Frankfort, which is on Lake Michigan, and the other to Thompsonville. Walking and bike friendly. There are bikes at the cottage available at no charge. Google "betsie valley trail" and click on "trail tour" for many pictures, including several of Crystal Lake.

All sorts of fun things to do nearby, such as golfing [several courses], tennis [one court is about 700 feet from the cottage], and canoeing down the platte river. The cottage is about a 10 minute drive to Lake Michigan. Traverse city is 30 miles away. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is around 30 miles away.

Beautiful Lake

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage at Crystal Lake. The owners were truly kind to deal with. We enjoyed fishing, and swimming. The cottage was clean and in a nice location. The sunsets were beautiful from the porch each evening. The only thing I would say is the bathroom shower area is very small. But I would highly recommend this cottage.

Sweet "housboat"

My sisters and I make a pilgrimage almost every year to our favorite home away from home. Walking in the door all you see is water, so we have nicknamed it the "houseboat". It has everything you need, right down to the binoculars. The pictures are an accurate depiction - what you see is what you get. There is no better place to be than having coffee on the deck in the morning.

Always will be a Crystal Lake Girl

I have been a Crystal Lake Girl every summer since I was born. This cottage is perfect for getting away but within walking distance to Downtown Beulah and driving distance to Traverse City. Just imagine waking up to the sounds of the water right outside your window and enjoying the sunset while sitting on the deck with a wonderful northern Michigan made wine. Book now because it will be worth it!! See you on the lake!!

Happily Hooked

Our Crystal Lake vacation is our summer highlight. We rent this adorable cottage, at the waters edge, every August. Safe (and no sharks!), clean and close to town. We use the boats to fish and tour the beautiful scene. Friday night fish fry, Hungry Tummy pizza, or a short drive to Boones on Long Lake (fabulous!), and we are happy campers. We can't wait to get back. Bonus, the owners are VERY nice people.
