What can I say? The cottage is everything you could ask for and more. It was very clean and well kept. The lake was as its name, crystal clean. It was close to restaurants, grocery stores and Dunkin Donuts. The kitchen had everything you needed, the linens and towels were fresh and clean. The beds very comfortable and the bathroom...

Management response:

Thanks so much! We're very happy you enjoyed yourselves. We liked seeing the kids out on the lake in the kayaks. Looking forward to having you again next year.

What a wonderful week-long stay we had at the Crystal Cottage in Gray! The property is very easy to find and the house is right on the lake. Susan was great to work with and was available for any questions we had. The house itself is everything you would want in a summer rental, including on-site laundry, a pool table...

Management response:

So glad you had such a good time! Always happy to see young children introduced to kayaking. We'll look forward to seeing you again!

We spent a week at this lovely home on Crystal Lake. Great property for two couples or more. It boasts a nice private yard and dock with a cushioned boat slip. Parking is ample. Wonderful beds, linens, etc. Perfect central location for those looking to enjoy all Maine has to offer. Crystal lake is quiet and great for water enthusiasts...

Management response:

Thank you so much. Thanks for your suggestion of adding wine glasses and a shade. You will find them for sure next year! We look forward to having you again.
