Crystal Mountain Fall Festivities

Mother Nature’s Homecoming

A slight chill in the air means one thing – fall has arrived. Vibrant crimsons, oranges and golds transform Benzie County into a fireball of color.

Last year, Crystal Mountain was voted the Top 15 Best U.S. Resorts for Fall Getaways from Fodor’s Travel. During your stay, we highly encourage you to visit M-22 for a color tour unlike any other. Less than 20 miles from the resort, M-22 was voted Best Scenic Autumn Drive by USA Today and listed on the Top 30 Great Midwest Fall Color Getaways by Midwest Living Magazine.

Spend a few days with us and keep the memories for a lifetime.
