Well maintained resort. Our room at the resort was clean and roomy with a window facing the lake. The grounds were well maintained, but had NO fire pit anywhere on the grounds which was a little disappointing. It would of been nice if the resort served a light continental breakfast such as bagels, cinnamon rolls, fruit, coffee ect. The motel... More

Quite a surprise upon arrival to find such a beautiful well maintained room. The view from the room was stunning overlooking the beach and lake. Spent hours on the beach. We will be back. I give it a 10.

We were looking to stay in Traverse City but after seeing the prices for 3 nights we chose to stay a little out of the Traverse area and found this nice little motel. The price was great, $79 for a King bed. Very clean, nice size flat screen tv, small but functional bathroom with a very nice hot shower. Took... More

Because Traverse City was full this fall weekend we found this property. The host had recommended a second floor room and therefore we had a unobstructed view of Crystal Lake. The room was spotless and everything worked. The WiFi is perfect and WORKS! I was wiping down my car and the host offered a towel -- A clean bath towel.... More

The biggest plus for this place is it has its own small beach on the lake, perfect for families with kids. It also has a huge lawn and we saw lots of wiffle ball and croquet being played by two large family reunions. Their dock may be available for you, too, not sure. Brand new carpets, older place but very... More

Unfortunately, the place we've been staying at in Beulah for years is up for sale and was not available for rental this Fall, so we tried somewhere new. Crystal Lake Resort did not disappoint us in any way. We will definitely be back. We stayed in Cottage #5 and although the couch, chair and beds (Full Size, not queen?) are... More
