Spectacular!
I have stayed at the Crystal Lake Lodge now in all seasons! My winter adventure included ice skating right out front on Crystal Lake, downhill skiing at Crystal Mountain, cross country skiing at Sleeping Bear National Park on several trails leading out to Lake Michigan, snowshoeing out the back door into the woods around Round Lake, sitting by the warm fire in the living room and cuddeling by the fire in the master suite! My spring visit was facinating watching all the wild flowers pop and mushrooming right out back! Nights were cool but the days were warm and sunny. My summer visit was awesome as a bought a kayak and learned to paddle in the shallows of Crystal where I knew I could still touch! Coffee on the beach, after a run, every morning and wine on the beach to watch the sun go down. My fall visits have been the most peaceful! I paddled out back on Round Lake at sunset with the most glorious color show ever! I've sent Mary photos for the web-site, enjoy. I love the fact that I can vacation and work at the same time, the wireless internet makes that possible. I often set up in the solarium to work where I can look out into the woods and out to Round Lake, I've see eagles, deer, and a bobcat, a pretty awesome office view! I've enjoyed cooking in the 70's vintage kitchen but I have also tried some very wonderful local restaurants. I love the lake and the woods and the spirit of the area! Mary is a great host and very responsive to any questions about the lodge or the local area. Every time I have stayed here the lodge is clean and inviting. The beach is already lovely but her plans for waterfront enhancements for next season sound terrific. I like the fact that she always asks for suggestions on how she can improve the amenities to enhance my next visit, now that's customer service. Thanks Mary! Looking forward to my ski club adventure at the lodge this winter, I think the gang is all going to love it! CB
