“Crystal Lake Cottage - A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

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 immaculate. We loved kayaking around the lake or taking leisurely rides in our paddle boat. Susan and Al were the perfect hosts and were available if we needed them for any questions or concerns. We had a blast and have already reserved our week for 2018.

“Peaceful, Scenic, Kayaks, and Close (Enough) to Portland, Freeport”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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 and foosball table, extra linens and pillows, full-sized refrigerator and all necessary items for cooking. There are lots of windows and great cross breezes to keep the house cool if you do not want to use the air conditioner or fans, which is one of the things I love most about Maine. They have a private dock and provide kayaks and life vests for adults and children. Our 6 year old LOVED kayaking and became adept at paddling on his own. What a great memory that is! Evenings were spent on the patio right on the water's edge with a fire in the chiminea. There was plenty of wood and there are extra lawn chairs if you have guests. The cottage is an easy driving distance to Freeport and Portland, which was great for meeting up with our local friends. We usually rent closer to the ocean, but our stay at Crystal Cottage has made us "lake people" now. We'll be back!

“Lovely lakeside home”
Reviewed August 1, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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 and nature lovers. This home is cozy with modern amenities. We will be back for sure. Many thanks to S and A.

“Best”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this delightful lakefront home. The amenities are above average. The home is beautifully furnished and well stocked with everything you need, including linens. We enjoyed playing pool and foosball in the basement, sitting on the dock, swimming in the clear water and kayaking around the lake. The owners are friendly and helpful.

“Beautiful and relaxing with lots of activity options!”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in August 2016

This cottage was clean and comfortable with beautiful views. The owners were very accommodating and helpful in suggesting family friendly activities in the area. With Pineland farms and wildlife parks close by, fishing, swimming, and kayaking at the cabin and only a short drive to nearby cities for city life activities, we were never lacking fun entertainment. Will definitely be staying here again (if it's available) during future trips up North!

Western exposure,with plenty of sun to enjoy crystal lake! A fully equipped home with everything you could need. Two kayaks are available to see the resident eagles and loons. Every night we enjoyed the chimenea after sunset on the patio looking at the lake. There is an aluminum dock that made easy access for swimming .
