Great stay at Crystal Lake
"I feel compelled to write a review because we had such a special week at this rental! The owner is just lovely to deal with. And she really takes great care to provide an AWESOME rental. No need to lug sheets and towels to this place - the beds are beautiful, comfortable, clean and already made! The cottage is a lake cottage but it's so CLEAN! The kitchen is well-stocked and CLEAN! Paper products are plentiful, which is also something that sometimes lacks at other rentals. Did I mention the place is ridiculously CLEAN? My only regret? I wish we had booked two weeks instead of just one. All rentals should be this perfect. Thanks to the owner for a truly great vacation at a great house."

"We loved the house and had an AMAZING time. We were 2 families staying here with kids ranging from 4 months to 5 years old and there was something for everyone. There was plenty of space and the views of the lake were incredible. The best part was the large expansive lawn with lots of water frontage. There is a firepit made from boulders from the property, a picnic table, a dock to jump off, water toys, a canoe and more. The care that is put into the property comes through. There are tons of toys, books and games and the kitchen is fully stocked. We have rented over 7 different properties through vrbo over the years and this one stands out. Owners were friendly and easy to deal with. Will definitely be back! Thank you!"

"Our family of 4 booked this beautiful home way back in the winter and we thought all spring and summer about our week at Alton Bay. When it finally arrived we had a great week of weather and the house was incredible. Very roomy and well equipped, the only thing we should have brought were our pillows as the down pillows seemed flat. The multiple decks, ah the decks-I can't say how many hours I sat out there, and 3 kayaks were used everyday even though we rented a 23' pontoon boat for the week, which fit nicely at the dock. We had company several days and the most in the house on one day was 11 and the house as large as it is still never felt cramped or congested. My husband fell in love with the wooden sculpture high up on the living room wall, he wants to know where you got it. We only turned the TV's on 2 nights (one night to watch the Patriots' play :)) and Tuesday the only day it rained a bit. We used the gas grill several evenings to cook and 1 night we even used the gas fire to ward off a chill in the evening air. We played games and 45's every night, we brought our own. All the games in the home seemed like they were missing a piece or a card- it would be nice if guests treated the game area with care.
Mount Major is just 1.5miles up the road and a great hike and incredible views from the top. We went to Shibley's for lunch and Pop's Clam Shell for dinner, both great spots to eat. This is a tremendous house in a tranquil cove. We truly enjoyed this very relaxing week and thank Brian and his family for opening up their doors to their well crafted home."

"I stumbled across this house on the Internet and I am very glad I did. I was looking for a spacious home for our yearly family reunion. The house and location exceeded all my expectations. It comfortably fit 8 of us with several beds that were not used. The house is set back from the road in a beautiful area of New Hampshire. The dining room comfortably fit all of us for dinner every night. The kitchen had all the tools to cook dinner with room for several chefs. The rear deck and hot tub were a great place to unwind. Sunset Lake is gorgeous. The walk to the lake through the woods was always beautiful and at the end you find Sunset Lake. The dock is large enough for at least 8 people to relax on. The lake is clean and quiet. We'd spend our nights relaxing outside looking at the stars and listening to the loons.
I can't say enough good things about the house and location. The house was spotless upon our arrival. Within a reasonable drive is Wolfsboro and a little further out is Woodstock, so there is plenty to do if you want to get out.
Dick was very accommodating and even called us mid week to see how we were. We would absolutely rent this beautiful house from Dick again. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away and spend a very relaxing week."
