Waterfront Home on Betsie River near Crystal Mountain w/ Fireplace, AC, Firepit

Take in the sights and sounds of the Betsie River and the surrounding woodlands at this quiet log lodge just outside Thompsonville, a beautifully secluded piece of property with 600 feet of water frontage on the river. It's a home that's just as inviting in winter as it is in summer, with the ski slopes of Crystal Mountain, bike trails, and the scenic shores of Lake Michigan all within minutes.

This tree-lined lodge is well-furnished and atmospheric, with natural log details, large windows, and central air conditioning throughout. If you're on a family ski trip, you can come inside to warm up by the gas fireplace, unwind in front of the flatscreen cable TV, and watch the snow pile up on the tree branches outside. As for summer, it's a time to barbecue on the gas grill, dine outside on the deck, and play lawn games in the grass. As the evening rolls in, you can keep warm in the private sauna in the garage or by the outdoor firepit sheltered by a pergola.

The kitchen is well-equipped for a crowd, offering stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar for four, and a dining table for six. A cozy den awaits upstairs for the after-dinner hours, where you can watch DVDs, play board games, or log onto the free WiFi at the desk as the day's clothes spin in the washer/dryer.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor, two more bedrooms upstairs, and one bathroom on each of the two floors.

We loved the home at River's Bend. My kids enjoyed exploring the river bank and we were close to lots of diversions at Crystal Mountain (climbing, alpine slide, driving range), mini golf and ice cream in Benzonia, beach and dining in Frankfurt, the lighthouse at Port Betsie. It was a perfect last bit of relaxation before school starts.

Loved the home, the private wooded lot , the sound of the river, the birds and the giant bird feeder hanging outside the window, the fire pit area was fantastic, the hot tub clean and hot, well stocked kitchen , location was perfect, close to golf courses and restaurants, . I gave it a four because upstairs bedrooms do not cool off and it’s very hot sleeping and getting reading, needs better cooling, downstairs was great.

Clean, spacious, and inviting. We greatly enjoyed our stay and the convenience of being so close to the ski resort.

The house was absolutely stunning both inside and out. We loved the amenities and location. We saw at least 6 deer run through the property down to the river. We loved it so much, we booked it again! We can’t wait to come back this summer!

We love Rivers Bend and have stayed here several times. The view of the river and the property is what keeps us coming back. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen is fully stocked with enough to bring and prepare our own meals. The sauna is a nice added benefit and fun. Very close to Crystal Mountain at about 2 miles. Iron Fish is right around the corner as well.
