The Red Cottage is a beautiful, cozy cottage located one block from the lake on a large lot shaded with huge oak trees. The cottage is situated on a paved, dead-end street in a nice, serene setting. Cottage guests have access to the lovely 724 acre all-sports Crystal Lake from their own private dock located on the lake, just a short walk away. Crystal Lake has a sandy bottom and gradually deepens, making it great for swimming as well as fishing, and boating. Crystal Lake is located in central Michigan, Montcalm County.

Perfect affordable escape

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect! Had several guests out to enjoy the weekend and they all awed over the affordability and the location and the perfectness! It was super clean, fully stocked with firewood, lawn chairs, kitchen everything, blankets, towels, just bring your clothes and you will be set! Dock was a short walk from cottage but beautiful. The water is very sandy with no seaweed perfect for kids to swim right off dock. We decided to not rent the pontoon but was wonderful that it was made available if we wanted to. Renter was so hospitable. Met us at cottage to show us around and make sure we had all our questions answered and we knew where Dock was. Kids loved the tree swing in the front yard. Many memories were made, thanks for an enjoyable time!

Relaxing Cottage Getaway on a Beautiful Lake

  • 5 of 5
My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage on Crystal Lake. This getaway is located in the quiet town of Crystal on a beautiful recreation lake. This cottage was the perfect size for our small family of four and could have easily slept 2-3 more people. The A/C window units served as great "white noise" for our little ones so they weren't woken up by the adults that stayed up later talking, watching TV, or enjoying the fire pit outside. There is a great rope swing that the kids definitely enjoyed! Even though this rental is in a more remote destination, we still got great cell phone service, and the cable television was nice one evening when it rained. We definitely look forward to staying at the little red cottage again!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5
This cute little cottage - a block from the lake had everything we could want & then some! We were looking for a cottage to rent on a lake in Michigan - near where we "used to live" so we could visit old friends & family (and have a comfortable home base) - just before my son deployed for Afghanistan.
It was a little chilly - early in the season - but the owners had heaters - plenty of blankets - and a generous amount of firewood for us! With 2 bedrooms & the sunporch - the accomadations were roomy for: Granny, Son, Daughter-in-Law, and grandson!

We had plenty of room to entertain dinner guests & they have a nice firering (for roasting up those "S'mores!). Walking distance to the beach & playround (then too several nice resturants - AND an Ice Cream stand) were additional - plus's to this rental. We had great times on the pontoon - plus cuaght a few fish! Our stay was all too short & we'd love to come back again!!

Great family gathering spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the Red Cottage! Lots of room for gathering on the deck outside when weather permits or inside in the enclosed sunroom with huge windows with screens to keep the bugs out. Beds were very comfortable and lots of them... ny husband and I took the sunroom's twin trundle beds and loved the fresh air coming in through the screens at night. Ceiling fans helped move the air, but if it had been hot enough every room has its own A/C. Lots of towels, supplies, and dishes, the owners thought of everything!
Thanks for a great Memorial Day weekend! We will be back!
