What a great resort. A hidden jewel. My 4 year old just loved Crystal Kids and the magic carpet lifts. The instructors are the best. Very kid friendly. They knew just how to get my son on the slopes and love it! The lodging is the best in the midwest. I have stayed at all the other large resort in Midwest MI and Crystal rocks! Very clean accomodations and the Cottages at Water's Edge are great for a large family! Every lodging option was updated and had a Up north decor. They understand what it take to provide great customer service. We had a few issues and the resort staff was their to make sure we left happy! Highly recommend the resort to anyone who has a family that needs to learn how to ski! They seem to focus on being a place to learn whether it is how to ski or golf! We stayed this past summer and my golf lesson with pro Brad Dean was extrodinary. I took off 9 strokes on my game in just one year! THanks to the entire staff for caring about me.
