After a warm welcoming and leaving our luggage in our clean room (with a beautiful lake view), we walked the 50 m down to the resorts private beach. After that we drove to the restaurant in collaboration with the resort for a nice discounted dinner and drinks (could have walked in retrospect as it was just 1.2km away) . In...

Nice clean and comfortable rooms. Great view of the lake, and the sunset in the evening. Nice beach area, and lake access. Short drive to Frankfort and Lake Michigan also. Definitely will visit again.

We were visiting family that was staying in one of the cabins. We had a hotel/motel room. Room 22 was very nice and VERY clean. We couldn't have asked for more. Cabin #1 was awesome. Very nice updated bathroom, nice hardwood floors through out, and very spacious kitchen. Great general layout that was great for just hanging out.

Beautiful property! The private beach is priceless! Great staff, including the staff at the Cold Creek Inn that they also own. Stop there for dinner at a discounted rate if you stay as a guest at the resort. Clean, comfortable and well cared for. Wish our room had a mini fridge but that is our only complaint. We regret not...

I have been coming to the Crystal Lake Resort with my family for well over 20 years. There's a reason for this: there is no better place to enjoy beautiful Crystal Lake.

Pleasantly surprised with the hotel grounds. Upgraded to a private cabin and it was perfect! Unit #7 was clean, comfortable, private, and newly renovated 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit. Beach was just steps away. Photos attached. Check it out!

Stayed here for two nights, we were in room 15. Room was perfect, very clean with a comfortable king bed. They have a beach area with chairs. Looks like every room has a view of the lake. Would stay again.

Reservation process was easy, check went well also. Our room was clean and simple. Nice size bathroom, with a good supply of towels. Complex was quiet and clean. The beach was nice and lounge chairs were nice. What you get for money is a clean conservative room, in heart of community. Only thing we wished for, rental or use of...

Great views and sunsets. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Would recommend this place for a stay. The owners restaurant is a wonderful place to eat. The only thing is wish they had coffee in the rooms.

Second Floor, Newly remodeled, Fantastic View of the Sunset on the Lake. Clean and crisp. We had only 24 hours but will return. My only minor gripe is the bathtub was a little slippery. We will arrange a week's stay next time.
