Stayed in Aug 2015 with extended family for a week. Like anything when leaving your home community - life it what you make it. The staff at Crystal Brook are friendly, welcoming and hardworking. The food was wonderful and the accommodations, while dated, were clean and comfortable. The hiking was amazing, and the option to take a bagged lunch was... More

Had a great weekend stay with some friends . They call it schlock fest, it meant everything from the pig. The German meals were great, and each meal had german dishes in abundant portions, such as weiner schnitzel ,roll mops, jaeger schnitzel, fresh ham, etc. That evening music for dancing was in the capacity filled Brauhaus beer hall across the...

Three delicious and generous meals a day included in the low daily or weekend price. An authentic German Brauhaus attended by all the locals on Friday and Saturday nights. Live music. Family owned and operated. Secluded location.

My girlfriend just stayed here and said it was just average. The woman (wife owner) is extremely rude with an attitude. Not that much to do, kind of boring and overpriced. She said rooms were old and dated. Food was ok, nothing great. I was thinking about staying here for this coming holiday weekend, I called up and got a... More

We have stayed here for a week the last three years. We enjoyed the vacation by being close to North/South Lake for swimming, canoeing, and hiking the trails and we loved spending afternoons by the pool. The owner's son, Eddie, works like a dog cooking and keeping the paying visitors happy. His wife on the other hand gave us an... More

I thoroughly had a great time during my recent stay. Needing a home base for motorcycle riding, Crystal Brook provided an excellent location nestled deep in the woods. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to stay. My friend and I did the B&B option, although the all included meals package is their standard.... More

My review is only for the Mountain Brauhaus, as I've never stayed in the Crystal Brook Resort but I've gone to the Mountain Brauhaus all my life. I grew up in the area, moved away but return periodically to make the rounds of Cairo and Round Top (Winter Clove Inn, Hartmann's Kaffee Haus, Alpine Pork Store, etc.), and 30 years... More

We have been going to the Brauhaus for years and always had a great time.... Until last year, it seems that the owner has cognitive issues and can be quite rude. after an encounter with her the staff explained that sometimes she is quite nice and other times horribly rude they never know what will happen. After order pitchers for... More

I've stayed at this resort for many years and will continue to go back. An excellent value in an old-fashioned atmosphere. The owners are a two generation family that will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. Sure, the facilities could use some updating but everything is functional and spotlessly clean. A full American... More
