Evoking the spirit of Northern Michigan’s traditional vacation cottages, Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa dates back to 1956, when a group of locals moved in and cleared the slopes of Buck Hills for skiing. Now, the sprawling hotel—with 92 rooms and suites, 87 condos, and 78 townhomes and cottages—is a 1,500-acre all-seasons resort, complete with downhill ski runs, miles of cross-country trails, two golf courses, and a one-acre outdoor water park. It’s a great choice any time of year, but winter is ideal: many of the spacious accommodations, inspired by early 1900’s Arts and Crafts bungalows, are furnished with cozy, primed-for-cold-weather amenities, such as whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces. 

Room to Book:

The MountainTop townhomes have the best views, easiest ski-in/ski-out access, and a private, shared pool for guests.

Insider Tip:

The mountain’s best skiing conditions are on Crystal Mountain’s North Face. Head out at the 10 a.m. for unbeatable first tracks.
