Had a wonderful stay
The property was as if see a in the photos. What isn’t see. Is how lovely the grounds are. The spa offers incredible treatment and we had a great time at the pool. Highly recommend !

Another Great Time!
We had dinner at the Thistle and breakfast at the Wild Tomato. Both restaurants were excellent. We rented fat bikes and used the outside hot tub. No skiing as everyone is getting a bit older. Everyone had a great time.

Marshall, we're glad that you all had a good time!  Biking and spending time in the hot tub sounds pretty good, even for those who aren't getting a bit older.  We do hope that you come back again.

The place was nice, though a bit dated. It was great having a full kitchen to prepare meals. The only complaint I have is that the towels need to be changed out. It was like drying my body off with sandpaper. I’ve never felt towels quite like that..

Julie, we appreciate your feedback, and we're glad that overall you enjoyed your stay.  We hope to work with you again.

This Crystal Mountain condo is the perfect location for golf, skiing, color tours, sand dunes, whatever your Northern Michigan vacation includes. Plenty of room for the family with everything you need while you're there. Reservation process was quick and easy and customer service was outstanding. We'll definitely be back again.

Scott, it sounds like you had an active and good time!  Thank you for your kind works or FVR customer service.  It means a lot to us, and we look forward to your return!

Relaxing Weekend
Enjoyed a long weekend of R&R in one of the rental condos. The buildings are older but well maintained and clean. My only complaint is that they are electric heat so it is extremely dry inside so I would suggest bringing a humidifier. Not going to knock them on the review for that as there is not much they can do. We utilized the access to the Betsie River trail on our bikes which is a great trail for entry level mountain bikers. The loop is about 12 leisurely miles although it is probably shorter when there is snow to be groomed. Would stay here again.

Christopher, it sounds like you had a great vacation!  We are glad to hear it.  We'll let the owner know your thoughts about getting a humidifier.  We look forward to your return!

The condo was absolutely inviting warm and a wonderful stay for the family. It felt like a home away from home and definitely a place we could consider staying again

Blaine, what can feel better that a home away form home!  Perfect.  We hope that you do come back again.

Great Customer Service
So glad we rented through Freshwater Vacation Rentals. They were so helpful not only when booking the vacation but also after we arrived. They were always available via text or phone for any questions or concerns. The place we rented at Crystal Mountain was perfect for us. The only issues I would report were that the shower curtains in both bathrooms need to be replaced and we couldn't find any scissors. Other than that, everything was great.

Sara, thank you for your kind words for the staff at FVR!  Our #1 priority is to give our guests the best service possible.  We will let the owners know about the shower curtains and the scissors.We loved hosting you, and look forward to doing so again.

Nice place close to Buck lift. Very clean and easy check in/out. Love the key code to lock the rental - no keys!

Holly, we agree, key codes are the way to go!  We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Crystal Mountain.  The gas fireplace is perfect for after a day on the slopes, and the close proximity to the slopes makes it the perfect place to stay.  We hope to see you again.

Will be back
I was very pleased overall with everything. I was most pleased with the communication. I did have a couple requested and not only did they accommodate them, but they got back to me very quickly and in a timely manner. This was a very easy process from booking, to checking in to checking out. I love good customer services and when I get it, I will be back and don’t mind spending my money there. I will be back.

FVR response:

Everything was great. It was a bummer we had to pay for the pool, but that was the only downside. The condo was excellent.

Great location, nice condo
This condo comfortably accommodated 3 adults and 2 young children. Great amenities and Crustal Mountain and the surrounding area offer so many things to do for all ages and interests. The only complaint I have is that we had some issues with the cleanliness of the condo upon our arrival. The staff was accessible and offered to make it right however. Thus, the 4 star b’s. 5 star rating. Had the place been cleaned properly, this is definitely a 5!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Howard, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay.  You are right, there is a lot to do at Crystal Mountain!  Again, please accept our apologies for the condo not being in perfect shape when you arrived.  It is our #1 priority that our properties are thoroughly cleaned before guests come in.  We are glad that you called us immediately, so that we could correct the situation for you.  We'd love to work with you again.

Our family of 6 and our pup had a great week at the condo. Loved the beauty of the property, felt safe enough to let the older teens jog or enjoy pool without adult. Doggies everywhere which was nice. Condo was well equipped... love sitting on the deck in the am. Beds were comfortable. Nice selection of pots and pans. Wish there was an outdoor grill for use We spent the week taking day trips to sleeping bear... traverse city too Kayaked on crystal lake

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Amy it sounds like you had a great vacation!   It's great to be able to take your dog along with you to Crystal Mountain, plus there is so much to do there.  Guests never get bored.  Sleeping Bear Dunes are only 30 minutes away for a great adventure riding the dune buggies.

Crystal Mountain is one of the gems in northern Michigan. Not too far to Crystal Lake and Frankfort
Enjoyed the property. Condo was roomy, however, bathrooms could use some updates. But everything was in good working condition.

We were at Crystal Mountain for a family celebration and booked this place for a long weekend. It was very spacious and clean with a nice view of the golf course. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the property - a great value for the price.

We enjoyed our stay. The condo had character and was clean and well supplied. We were there during the week and found the area pleasantly quiet and quaint. The only fault was the directions given were a bit off with # miles from hwy 10 to M115 was more than 7 miles. Plus the condo is not the last unit on the right and when we arrived in the dark there was no #7795 sign on the front of the condo so spent some time figuring out which condo it was.

Cindy, we are so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Crystal Mountain.  It is so gorgeous up there, and I'm sure the quiet of the week was wonderful.  We appreciate your comments about the directions, and we will make the necessary changes for future guests.  We hope to see you again in 2019!

Nice place
Great place It is a little dated but as everything you need! ! We had a blast. Could walk right to the resort and to the chairlift. Walked the cross country trail everyday right behind the unit with my dog Moose, he had so much fun. Has plenty of room for 4-6 people. The bunks are very comfortable. I will be staying again in the future.

Peter, we are so pleased that you and your pup enjoyed staying at  Crystal Mountain.   It is the perfect place for a fabulous snowy winter vacation.  Every winter sport is at your finger tips, and then you can return to sit in front of the stone fireplace to get warmed up.  We hope that you come back again!

Completely enjoyed ourselves
We had the best week at Crystal Mountain and staying in this condo! It was very clean and comfortable, simply but nicely appointed, and in the perfect location at the resort. We had easy access to the resort amenities and usually just walked to them. We loved the gas fireplace, the comfy living room area, and the beautiful view over the golf course...and our boys loved the bunk bed room. The only things that keep me from giving a 5-star rating were that the place takes quite a while to heat up - it has radiant heaters vs forced air and with the high ceilings (and single-digit temps), it was pretty chilly. Also, a washer/dryer is always a plus especially when we are wearing the same layers repeatedly for skiing, and the units in these particular condos do not have washer/dryers in them. But these certainly did not take away from our enjoyment of our vacation and we'd certainly vacation there again!

Jennifer, thank you for this wonderful review.  We love when our guests enjoy our properties as much as you did, and your review gives portential guests a good feel for Crystal Mountain.  There is so much to do at the resort, and skiing right now is great!  We certainly can appreciate your reasons for not giving your stay a 5 star review, and we hope that you will be a guest of ours at any of our properties again soon.

Great place a little dated but nice. Able to walk to everything from the condo. Beds were nice.
Great place a little dated but nice. Able to walk to everything from the condo. Beds were nice. Glad I could bring my dog he had a blast on the golf course at night, we walked the trail and he was whipped!

Great condo that feels like a log cabin!
Super cozy, 2 sets of bunk beds in the second bedroom. Awesome fireplace. Will definitely be returning on our next ski trip!

Jason and Greta, we are so happy that you loved your stay at Crystal Mountain.  It is a great location with so much to do, no matter what the season!  And we agree, the fireplace is awesome!  We'll look for your name on our 2019 calendar!

Great Condo on the golf course
Very clean, roomy and perfect getaway for a golf retreat or to stay in a nice up north cabin for a reasonable price. Only thing to note is that the Crystal Mountain amenities were not included as it was not booked through Crystal. So plan to pay for pool, fitness club, adventure zone privileges. But the condo value for price outweighs the small amenity fees. Great management allowed us flexibility in check out as well. 5 star experience

Stephen, we are so happy that you enjoyed staying at Crystal Mountain.  We realize that having to pay for the amenities is a bit strange, so we try to make that clear in our bookings.  We hope to see you again!

Awesome stay

“The condo and amenities were better than expected with lots of towels, along with hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. The Mr. Coffee had cream, sugar, filters, coffee packs, although we brought our own, nice ice maker in the freezer, full kitchen, the WiFi UN and PW were written out, a nice TV station listing was on the coffee table. It was very comfortable and all of our needs were met. Jenny and office staff were readily available and quickly responsive. The price we paid to stay in a condo with Freshwater at the resort was less than half of what the resort was going to charge us. I highly recommend Freshwater.”


Kathy we are thrilled that Crystal Mountain  worked out so well for you.  It is a great property with loads of things to do.  Thanks also for the kind words for the FVR staff.  We hope to work with you again soon.

Fantastic Property!
We absolutely LOVED this property! Clean soft bedding, super clean bathrooms pleasantly stocked with wonderful smelling soaps and lotion! The balcony view was so peaceful over the golf course. Loved the feel of this resort with so many things for the children. Stumbled onto the art walk up the mountain and couldn't believe what an amazing spot that was. Just everything about our stay at this condo far exceeded our hopes and dreams. We would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you

Beth, we love how much you liked Crystal Mountain!  It is a pretty special property with lots to do.  We look forward to working with you again!
