Welcome to Crystal Lake East Shore Cottages. We have two clean beachfront cottages featuring wonderful views of Crystal Lake and within walking distance to downtown Beulah and the Betsie Valley hiking and biking trail. Crystal Lake is noted as one of the ten cleanest lakes in the United States. The lake is approximately 9 miles long and approximately 1+ mile wide. This lake is noted for it’s excellent fishing, morning water skiing and kayaking, and afternoon sailing opportunities.  

Our beachfront location features a clean, sandy bottom and a quiet location, away from busy traffic. Each cottage is available for rent weekly, from early June through September of each year. You can rent one cottage or both, for larger family get-togethers or whatever suits your needs.
