I love Crystal and cannot recommend it enough. Multiple lodging options, from hotel rooms, to condos, to adorable stand-alone cottages. Beautiful grounds. Consistently friendly staff. Great restaurants. Fantastic spa. Indoor and outdoor pools. Don’t miss the Art Park.

Stayed at the Inn for one night. Check in was fast. The room in the Inn were large. A pull down bed would easily sleep another two people. Nice kitchenette. The Jacuzzi is huge. The balcony has a small table with a couple of chairs. A very nice room. The grounds were well kept and clean. The kids will love... More

My husband and I recently drove around the top of Lake Michigan and stopped for two nights at the Crystal Mountain Resort. We appeared to be among the few people there without children but because it is very well laid out, it never seemed overrun with children, noisy, or very crowded, even though it was full. I could see where... More

Great Place lots to do service is excellent. We spent a week here about a month ago and had a blast. We have been visiting the Traverse area for years and this our first time at Chrystal. Although the Resort was pretty much sold out it never seemed crowded. Alpine Slide was great as was the biking and the kids... More

Great spot for a long weekend getaway with the kids. Combination of pool, climbing course, and alpine slide on the grounds and proximity to other activities within 45 minutes (Sleeping Bear Dunes, Cherry Hut) made for a very fun family trip.

Our first trip to Michigan. A beautiful , awesome state. The Crystal resort was so relaxing and peaceful. There are several things to do from golfing, biking, massages(Great Spa -$$$$) sightseeing, hiking trails, and more. Very family friendly or just a get away resort. You will stay in a house or condo, with house keeping (a plus ). Also a... More

We booked this resort based on the reviews and the golf courses. I did not think it was worth the price. We stayed at the Inn on the Mountain, room overlooked the parking lot. The weather was cool at night so we wanted to keep the windows open. The delivery trucks arrive early in the morning beeping, there is constant... More

Rented two 4 bedroom condos for a business retreat/golf outing. Absolutely first class in every way. Would love to come with my family but doubt I could ever afford it....people with money come here, not real people.

Resort has great skiing in the winter, especially for families. This was our first summer visit. The "guys" in the family spent a day on nearby ATV rentals while the "ladies" visited the Crystal Spa. Resort offers golf (courses, putting green, driving range), disc golf, bonfires, alpine slide, outdoor pool/fun park, chair lift rides, mountain bike rental and more. Sleeping... More

I spent a long weekend here with my family, my boys (6 and 10) had an absolute blast as did I. The resort was in perfect condition and staffed by friendly and professional staff. There was lots to do on the resort itself plus the usual Michigan Up-North activities are close by - these offsite activities can be booked at... More
