The White House Cottage is a classic “traditional” family summer cottage, located in the Congregational Summer Assembly on Crystal Lake, just north of Frankfort MI, and less than an hour’s drive from Traverse City.

It has five bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and lots of character (including WiFi Internet access). It is located about 100 yards back from the biggest (and private) beach on Crystal Lake — big enough for exciting sailing and boating, small enough for safe swimming (the CSA has a roped and guarded swimming area), and one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in Michigan. A delightful one-mile walk to the west through the woods takes you to the private CSA beach on the Big Lake, a favorite place for sunsets. The cottage is perfectly situated for families (especially with small children) wanting to be near the beach.

This cottage has been in the same family for five generations and is named for our ancestors who bought it during the Depression: P.J. and Maria White. We rent it out weekly during July and August each year to offset our operating costs. This website provide photos and details about the property.
