Where is Crystal Mountain Resort, MI?
You’ll find our Crystal Mountain Resort house rentals in the town of Thompsonville, located in northwest Michigan. The winters yield tons of fresh, powdery snow—over 11 feet per year—making it a dream destination for skiers. Thompsonville is just 45 minutes southwest of Traverse City, where you’ll find great food, breweries, and even more outdoor activities.
Skiing near our Crystal Mountain Resort rentals
If you’re coming for the ski season, you won’t be disappointed. Book yourself a pass to enjoy Crystal Mountain’s 58 downhill slopes with 102 acres of skiable terrain. Don’t worry if you’re a novice skier, as there are a number of lessons available for all ages and skill levels. Cruise down the fresh powder or explore over 15 miles of cross-country skiing trails—including night lighted trails. If that’s not enough action for you, try your hand at fat tire snow biking or snowmobiling. Or you can practice your spins with a fun afternoon of ice skating, or even cozy up for a romantic horse-drawn surrey ride.
Outdoor activities near our Crystal Mountain Resort house rentals
While there’s certainly something to be said for Thompsonville in the winter, it’s the abundance of year-round activities that make this place so special. A summer or spring visit only means more possibilities for having fun.
Our Crystal Mountain Resort house rentals are near two incredible golf courses—Mountain Ridge and Betsie Valley—both of which are four-star rated by Golf Digest. You’ll also have access to tennis, hiking trails, and disc golf. Let the kids run and splash at the Park at Water’s Edge, a one-acre water park with a swimming pool, water cannons, and more. Thrill seekers will love trying activities like a zip-line, ropes course, climbing wall, and outdoor laser tag. There’s even an alpine slide, where you can careen down a 1,700-foot track on a specially-designed sled for an unforgettable ride.
No trip to Michigan would be complete without seeing one of the Great Lakes, and our Crystal Mountain Resort rentals are just minutes away from the vast beauty of Lake Michigan. Head to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore for hiking, an afternoon picnic, or to catch jaw-dropping sunsets. A number of boating and fishing tours are available, as are kayak and canoe rentals for exploring the nearby Platte River.
When you’re done exploring the outdoors, grab a bite at one of the nearby cafes and restaurants, or make the drive into bustling Traverse City, where you’ll find everything from low-key burger joints to fine pan-Asian cuisine. If you really want to pamper yourself, you can book a facial or massage—or both—at the Crystal Spa.
