Found this place while researching another resort located nearby. Crystal Brook is billed as a German resort and if you look at the web site it appears that it is all German, all day, every day. The reason I note this is because my husband is German and as soon as I saw the web site I knew he would absolutely love a getaway involving meals like his mother and grandmother used to cook and German music at the Brauhaus. I spoke to the owner when making reservations and explained that this would be a surprise for my husband and that we were looking forward to the German atmosphere. The surprise was on us, though, because no German meals were served, and there was no German entertainment. When I asked our host about this she said that that only takes place during the summer months and since this was September the German food/entertainment is only provided on weekends. I don't know why this wasn't mentioned during our phone conversation, but had I known I would have made reservations for a weekend instead of mid-week. I was disappointed that my surprise didn't work out, but that being said, we did enjoy a relaxing getaway. The meals, though not German, were delicious and the food was plentiful. They even packed a lunch for us the day we went sight seeing. Three meals a day were included in the price, so it was a tremendous bargain. There was music and dancing at the Brauhaus, and we spent an enjoyable evening there. Everyone was lovely, and the room was immaculate...very rustic/dated, but perfectly fine for us. It's definitely worth a visit.
