Well kept facilities in every area of the resort. Friendly staff that was always attentive. First time I have ever seen lifeguards tested by having a dummy thrown in the pool in the 5 seconds they were out of view of a small section of their assigned area. Saw a man driving a maintenance vehicle stop just to help someone... More

We've been coming to Crystal for 17+ years. It has never disappointed. It gets better every year with new attractions and activities for the family. Accommodations are expansive in choice for a wide array of family/group sizes. Golf is fantastic and the surrounding area provides endless opportunity to explore beautiful northern Michigan. You won't be disappointed!

just want you to know we had our stay last week and it was EXCEPTIONAL. I can not get over how every single person I dealt with from Reservations clear back in March to lifeguards, housekeeping, front desk, chairlift, EVERYONE was SO exceptionally nice and friendly. The whole resort always went out of their way to be accommodating. We went... More

We stayed at Crystal Mountain for four nights the last week of June. We stayed in a Hamlet room, four of us, myself, my husband and my 13 and 10 year old sons. The room was plenty big with a table and four chairs and a nice kitchen with decent size fridge and microwave, sink and cabinets. The resort is... More

We stayed at the Wintergreen condos for a golf package. We mentioned we had one in our group with knee problems, but still ended up climbing stairs to get to our condo, then more stairs to our extremely hot, 2nd floor loft bedroom. Condos are dated, but clean. Definitely just a place to crash, with no privacy between floors. The... More

My husband and I attended the three day adult golf school in June. The facilities are top notch and the golf instructors great. We were at ease the very first day. This is a great value as you get three hours of instruction every morning of the school and then on course instruction for two days for six holes. Also... More

My son and wife just had their wedding reception at Crystal Mountain. From the time we checked in til the time we left there wasn't one bad experience. The staff is fantastic, everyone of them is polite, happy, helpful and go out of their way to accommodate you. Numerous people that stayed at the resort were given upgrades for no... More

many activities available at the resort, including golf, tennis, mountain biking, alpine slide, etc. Our unit was very clean, but old and kind of odd. Jacuzzi tub, but no separate shower, and the water took at least 5 minutes to heat up. Pool lifeguards are constantly circling the pool, making for a less than relaxing atmosphere. No place we could... More

This is my third stay at Crystal Mountain, and I enjoy the place a lot. The rooms are reasonable and comfortable. I have pretty basic expectations for a hotel/resort room because I just sleep there. So I want a decent bed, clean room, and things that work. So my expectations are pretty middle of the road. Crystal itself is in... More
