Why Fletcher and Nancy Johnson chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Northern Michigan has been a favorite summer get-away for years! Once our kids were old enough to enjoy snow sports, it became a favorite winter retreat as well! Crystal Mountain is the perfect location for our vacation condo! We can enjoy snow sports, golf, and close proximity to the treasured Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore!

What makes this condo unique

In the heart of Crystal Mountain Resort and Spa, our condo is extremely convenient to activities. 5 minute walk to slopes, spa, and golf clubhouse, restaurants, and more.

Our 38th anniversary celebration week

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed the week we stayed in the condo. We especially enjoyed the modern, refurbished kitchen where we cooked fabulous gourmet meals each evening. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Some had written they had a problem with the wifi, but it worked really well for us. The condo is located in a very family friendly area. For us it was delightful to be able to see so many families together enjoying their time together. We went for walks and runs every day and loved the many day trips and wine tasting opportunities available to us. Highly recommended.

Comfortable & Convenient with an Affordable Price and Flexible Scheduling

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the heart of Crystal Mountain surrounding the outdoor and indool pools, rock climbing wall, zip line, fitness center, spa, restaurants, slopes, etc. and has the benefit of being close to Crystal Lake, Frankfort and Beulah. The condo was clean and cozy upon arrival.

We had a sound issue after arriving after midnight which kept us from falling asleep. We grudgingly contacted Nancy around 1:45 am and she not only answered the phone, she was determined to help us find a solution to mitigate the problem....and she followed through. The resort told Nancy the problem was solved, but on night 2 the noise resumed around 2 am. We called Nancy the next morning, talked through the issue and within a short few hours the issue had been resolved. Not only were the owners attentive to our needs and understanding that we were on vacation, they were dedicated to finding a solution for us. I highly recommend this condo not only due to location, cleanliness, price and flexible scheduling options (you can rent nightly vs. weekly), but also knowing the owners are phenomenal and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best stay possible.

Owner's Response: Dear Laura and Jesse: Thank you for the kind words. We can't express how appreciative we are of your graciousness during the process of figuring out what the mystery-noise was that awoke you! Our first priority was for you and your family to have a wonderful time at the resort and for you all to thoroughly enjoy your stay. So, having said that, we were happy to work to find a solution! :) You both were very kind throughout the process and we appreciate the extra investigative work you did to help the Resort staff isolate the noise outside of the condo and ultimately fix it! We hope to welcome you back soon!

Nice layout and view and location but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Mainly kitchen and bath need updating. Housekeeping left a bit to be desired. Vacuumed when we got there as bits of food and paper here and there. Also had to sweep front porch and deck of debris. Ladies shoes left in closet!

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth: Thank you for taking the time to review our condo. We feel badly that the house-cleaning was not up to snuff! We will certainly communicate your feedback to our team. We keep as many up to date photos on our website, as possible to accurately depict the accommodations. Some fun news: we actually have some plans in the works to make some updates to the bathroom. A fall project! Hope to welcome you back and we hope you enjoyed your stay. Thank you again for the review.
