If you are seeking a peaceful vacation get-away that still feels like home, please read on about Beulah View Cottage.
The village of Beulah is on the northwestern coast of Michigan, minutes from Lake Michigan, on Crystal Lake. The Benzie County area is considered a premier vacation spot that has been loved by generations. Crystal Lake is one of the largest inland lakes in Michigan, known for it's sparkling blue water that "appears" as travelers from north or south come over the hills around Beulah on US 31.
Our Cottage is near two dead end streets in a quiet spot, just one block from the main street of Beulah, and two blocks from the public beach and boat launch ramp on Crystal Lake. It is an older home, remodelled inside and out, and comfortably sleeps 10.
We encourage folks to look on line at the websites on our
"contact us" page for more details about things to do in Benzie County and northwestern Michigan. Right in the Village of Beulah there are great shops,a deli, restaurants, pubs, bowling alley, bicycle/watercraft sales and rental, grocery store, antiques, and new in 2005, the Betsie Valley trail head building. The town tennis court and playground are two blocks away right by the Crystal Lake beach.
Within a 10 to 30 minute drive you'll find the Cherry Bowl drive in theater, many golf courses, local art galleries, tubing, canoeing, fishing, and wineries. Unlike many resort areas up north, most shops in Beulah and surrounding towns of Benzonia and Frankfort, stay open year around. Benzonia is one mile away and has full service stores, fast food, etc. Beulah is the Benzie County seat, and Frankfort has a full service hospital open 24 hours a day-7 miles away.
The beaches of Lake Michigan in Benzie county are beautiful and secluded, and are by far one of the biggest attractions for people visitng western Michigan-summer or winter. The Sleeping Bear Dunes and National Seashore are a short drive.
Crystal Mountain resort is Michigan's most visited ski area. In summer it has a wonderful golf course and small water park open to the public. It is 12 miles from Beulah.
In the winter, we offer 2 night stays with flexible check in/out times, as an alternative to slope side lodging for skiers.
Betsie Valley trail is used one way for snowmobiles, the other way for walkers, cross country skiiers, snowshoeing, and biking. It is accessible one block from our rental.
