This Is What Our Guests
Chalet Crystal Mountain
★★★★★ 5/5 Big Family Get Together
Our extended family spent 5 days in this wonderful home. There was plenty of room for everyone and I was pleasantly surprised by how well stocked the place was. The only thing missing was a toaster and some improved lighting in the living room.
I would definitely return to the property!
★★★★★ 5/5 Beautiful Home for a Group Visiting Crystal Mountain
Great home, awesome location, and overall a lovely experience. Perfect place to stay for a group travelling to Crystal Mountain!
★★★★★ 5/5 Favorite so far!
This is my family’s third stay at Crystal Mountain Resort-six adults, three children. I was looking for optimum sleeping conditions and proximity to the pool and amenities. This property was perfect. Each couple had a bedroom and there were enough bedrooms that each child had their own room. The golf course view was a plus and it truly was an easy walk to everything. The large living room made it easy to visit and there was plenty of room for the kids to play. My family voted to come back to this particular home. Highly recommended!
★★★★★ 5/5 Great location
We had a fun stay, and were surprised that the cabin included a lot of kitchenware
★★★★★ 5/5 Family vacation
Great location for many activities. House very accommodating for our family. Very clean and loved the decor!!
★★★★★ 5/5 Perfect home for a family gathering
Renting this property was easy. Love the view from the porch. It’s a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.
★★★★★ 5/5 Ideal for a group of adults
The house was just as described. We had a large group (11), and all were adults. The 6 bedrooms and 3 bath were ideal for us. We enjoyed the large living room, deck, and play room (lower level). The home was well stocked with towels, supplies, and TVs. When we arrived we found the gas grill was out of gas and the property manager promptly brought us a new tank. It was a great stay. We will strongly consider coming back!
★★★★★ 5/5 Excellent
We had a wonderful time with my whole family. It is very comfortable and clean, offers plenty of space for everyone and is in a great location! I highly recommend.
★★★★★ 5/5 Perfect for large family-something for everyone!
Perfect for our family-kids and grandkidsloved short distance to pool area, spa, golf and food. Trail biking is great as Crystal connects with Betsie River trail. Spent a lot of time on the deck which faces #10 fairway of the Betsie River Course. Need Thermalcell for misquotes and it works well.
Coming back next summer. Pictures on-line are accurate for inside view.
★★★★★ 5/5 Family celebration
★★★★★ 5/5 We had a great time!!
We had a great time! The house fit all the needs of our group:)
★★★★★ 5/5 Great Family Vacation
Everything was perfect. Comfortable beds, close to ski hills, wood burning fireplace was perfect for family gathering. Kitchen was stocked with lots of pots, pans, and utensils. Large entryway on lower level for snow stuff. Would definitely stay again.
★★★★★ 5/5 Perfect for Work Conferences - Large Groups
This was rented during a conference at Crystal Mountain. What a huge cost savings for our company; instead of renting individual rooms. There were plenty of beds and bathrooms for everyone.
★★★★★ 5/5 Beautiful home with everything you need
First off, Brian was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We had 13 ladies/girls and the house was perfect. Enough room and bathrooms without being on top of one another. We had looked at other houses that only had 2 bathrooms, but thank goodness I decided on this one (with 13 getting ready to go out for dinner it worked out perfect). The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, the bedrooms were spread out for privacy and were very comfortable and quiet. It was only a very short walk to the pool/store/restaurants. The only problem we had was the refrigerator downstairs wasn’t staying cold so we had to move all of our extra food/drinks to coolers/upstairs. When I called the caretaker he said they’ve had problems where sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn’t and that they will have someone come out to look at it. All and all very nice enjoyable stay. Thank you
★★★★★ 5/5 Great time!
★★★★★ 5/5 Wonderful Stay
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The location was great for golfing, swimming, visiting the dunes and just relaxing. The spaces in the house are great for a bigger group. The kitchen was perfect for cooking as it was fully stocked with everything we needed. Thanks for a great stay!
★★★★★ 5/5 Up north getaway.
Had a great time at the Chalet Crystal Mountain. Beautiful home with lots of space and everything you need amenity wise. Great view of golf course yet secluded in the woods. All the activities within walking distance. Rented a pontoon boat on Crystal Lake which was fun. Would definitely stay here again.
★★★★★ 5/5 Top fux.
This is a very high end house. The luxury features are first class…had five adult golfers living in luxuray for three days. Will rental again and again.
★★★★★ 5/5 Awesome
★★★★★ 5/5 Great spot for a ski vacation!
The chalet was well outfitted and comfortable. A great home away from home for our group!
★★★★★ 5/5 WOW! Lots of room yet very cozy
One cannot truly appreciate the size of this place until you are there. All bedrooms were just the perfect size. Large gathering spaces both upstairs and down. Kitchen is very nice and well stocked. Great location close to the slopes. We have stayed at a lot of places in and around Crystal and by far this one is our favorite.
★★★★★ 5/5 ONE OF THE BEST AT CRYSTAL!

★★★★★ 5/5 Awesome house, awesome location, highly recommend!
I organized a golf outing for 12 guys, the house was awesome! Perfect for our group, the game room with ping pong table, big screen tv, huge sitting area, and gambling kit rocked!
We cooked steaks one of the nights, the place had a table that could sit all 12 guys, a grill that handle 12 steaks and wide open kitchen with everything you needed to cook!
Not one guy complained about beds, had plenty of towels, very clean place!
This place is a 5 star house, Brian, the home owner has great to work with. We left a few items in house, he took the time to mail the items back to me.
Can’t wait until next year!
★★★★★ 5/5 WE LOVED IT...LOVE THE VIEW...
Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home. It was spacious and very nice. Everyone loved it…We will stay there again next year… Loved the view and laid on the fairway in the sun…:)
★★★★★ 5/5 Great!!
Beautiful, exceeded our expectations!!
★★★★★ 5/5 Great location and large home for our family to all get together.
Have been staying at the same house for years. Very comfortable and well maintained.
★★★★★ 5/5 You have to stay here!
This house is amazing! We came with family and had 15 people in the house, not one time did it ever feel cramped! There is so much room and the house is gorgeous! The beds are super comfortable, the carpet is soft, the table is huge, and the furnishings are amazing! My nieces and nephews loved the ping pong table! I can’t say enough great things about this house, I also loved that there was a Yale lock on the door, so we could come and go without having to check in/out with the owner (he’s super nice, though). Definitely stay here!
★★★★★ 5/5 Roomy Cabin Fun!
This 6 bedroom cabin in Crystal Mountain Resprt has space for everyone. From all the flat screen tvs, to the well equipped kitchen to the game room with card table and ping pong table, our group had plenty to do inside and outside in the wonderful Benzie County area. A short drive to quaint Frankfort and the Lake Michigan beach was our favorite destination. New carpeting made this cabin feel fresh and new. Everyone was happy with their comfy beds!
★★★★★ 5/5 Perfect Family Chalet
8 of us stayed Memorial weekend at this lovely chalet. We had a mix of toddlers, party animals and everything in between! The house fit everyone’s needs perfectly. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make big breakfasts and late night snacks. The beds are extremely comfortable. The view sitting up high felt far away while everything within walking distance. We could not have asked for a better weekend and an even better home!
★★★★★ 5/5 Excellent property to host a large group.
Open design accommodates a large group very well! The large great room is beautiful and naturally serves as a congregation space. Enjoyed the large table that really doubled as a conference table for my meeting. The location is great and the property had everything we needed!
★★★★★ 5/5 Great home

★★★★★ 5/5 It's a wonderful place to stay for three families - plenty of room, nice fireplace and

★★★★★ 5/5 Great Home Away From Home
A fantastic summer getaway house for our family of 12 (including our 4 kids, 2 wives and 4 grandkids – ages 1 to 6) this August. The kitchen is fully equipped – just bring food. The 6 bedrooms and combinations of beds was perfect for our group so that each family group had its on bedtime area. The great room on the upper level was Ideal for the entire family to spend time together. The HUGE dining room table with benches and chairs allowed all of us to eat together. The well supplied laundry room let us do laundry as needed. We were so busy with outdoor activities we didn’t even us the large downstairs room with ping pong table. The location of the home in the Crystal Mountain Resort was a nice central location for our summer activities. Highly recommend this well-maintained property.
★★★★★ 5/5 Secluded and comfortable. Great property.
We were very happy with the accommodations at this property. The interior was clean and well stocked. The kitchen had a very large table that easily sat us all. All 3 bathrooms were beyond our expectations. Clean and well stocked. The exterior deck needed to be swept and the chairs cleaned off but other than that we had no complaints. We were very comfortable and it was quiet at night. Our party included 2 elderly parents, 2 a bit younger, 3 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 9. The kids loved the bunk beds! There was more room than we needed but wanted 3 bathrooms.
★★★★★ 5/5 Close to everything, lots of space!
Property is very close to everything, and has lots of room for large get-togethers. The golf course view is beautiful, and the wraparound deck is fully shaded. Lots of space – our family loved it! Great property, we highly recommend it.
★★★★★ 5/5 2nd Trip with large family group.
We had a great time and the house was perfect for us. We had a couple of rainy summer days but it gave us the opportunity to play games and do puzzles as a family. There is plenty of room downstairs to do this but we brought a card table to set up upstairs for the adults to do puzzles. It was perfect. Love that there was a crockpot in the kitchen and we used it. You really don’t need to bring anything because the kitchen is fully equipped. One new thing we did this year was use the house photographer at Chrystal Mountain to come take a family picture. She was great. The resort is great for everyone and there is lots to do close by. We plan to come back again next year. Thank you for allowing us to use your home.
★★★★★ 5/5 Crystal Mountain House
It’a a great house in a great location. We especially like the huge fireplace and large walk out basement with ping pong! We have stayed here several times with a group during ski season and it’s always been a positive experience. The house is very clean and has plenty of linens etc.
★★★★★ 5/5 Great Property!
We had so much fun! The property was great! Clean and well maintained, plenty of room for our family. We have 4 adult Children, two with spouses and three grandchildren, plenty of room for everyone. Our “kids” enjoyed playing cards in the lower level. Kitchen was well stocked. We didn’t have snow on the country side but we found plenty to do. I would recommend this property for sure!
★★★★★ 5/5 Couldn't have asked for more!
This house was both beautiful and comfortable a combination you don’t often find. Plenty of space for 8 adults, 1 teen and 5 children. The kids loved the family room and at times we barely knew they were there. The cook in me loved the kitchen and we ate every meal at the house. 2 refrigerators was a huge plus when cooking for 14 people. The huge dining room table allowed us to have meals together and the bar allowed us to set up the food and have people serve themselves. 6 bedrooms allowed everyone to have their personal space and 3 bathrooms with 14 people were great for getting ready in the morning. There were 2 bedrooms downstairs and 4 bedrooms upstairs. For us the best part was that each kids bedroom (a full over twin bunk bed) had a queen bedroom next to it for the parents. Sitting around the fireplace at night was a great place for conversations and storytelling about the days activities. We especially loved the up north feel of the house and the kids named the Elk head over the fireplace Bob. Our days activities consisted of trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Empire Beach, Grand Traverse Lighthouse, Leeland with it’s Fishtown and Frankfort. But you wouldn’t have to leave the Crystal Mountain resort area at all. The kids had a blast doing the Mountain Slide, the water park, the rock wall and the overhead obstacle course and zip line. There is an extra charge for those but if you buy the family fun card you get 20 activities for $159, which considering that the card can be shared between multiple kids we felt that was reasonable. There are free concerts several nights a week and the Michigan Art Legacy park onsite and they even sent a cart around to pick people up and bring them back to their homes. We also enjoyed watching the golfers, had a deer in the yard one morning and the kids loved hunting stray golf balls. I want to give a shout out to Ron the caretaker, who responded quickly to some questions we had and was very helpful and pleasant to speak to. The owner Brian also was responsive and helpful and answered all the questions I had prior to our arrival. My entire family including my parents, children and grandchildren all voted and they want to come back again next year. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation. We will definitely be coming back.
★★★★★ 5/5 Great find
Found this property online and the photos do not do it justices. I was perfect for 6 adults and 5 children. Plenty of space and very well equiped home. We had blast and already planning next years family vacation.
★★★★★ 5/5 perfect summer golf retreat
This home was the perfect getaway for a summer weekend away. We easily fit 10 adults in the home and had a great time playing cards at night at the huge dining table. Perfect location within the resort, just a short walk to the first tee.
★★★★★ 5/5 Family Group
We have stayed here several times and it is perfect for a family winter retreat. The home has everything needed, and is near the ski slopes. Younger kids love the sledding hill just outside. The size makes it possible for various activities at the same time Everyone loves being able to play ping pong, and our family also enjoys the number of televisions we can use for video games and movie night. When we need a break from cooking, pizza and restaurants are a short walk away, although it’s not easy to leave the warmth of the cozy fireplace. We will be back.
★★★★★ 5/5 Great Ski Trp Weekend
We had a great time. The house was very nice and had everything we needed. Great location for everyone to be able to go to the slopes as needed. Look forward to renting the property again next year.
