"Natural beauty, facilities, proximity to Michigan’s great Up-North… a time to step off the Merry-Go-Round. A place to reflect on the more important things of life. The old saying goes, “Heaven and earth are only three feet apart. In some places even thinner." Crystal is one of those places."

-Armand Aronson

“What an ideal setting and great facility options for a variety of groups to enjoy for retreats, reunions, conferences, and youth/adult camps. Being close to Lake Michigan, dunes, nearby areas for hiking, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, provides an ideal opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.”

-Neil Topliffe
