Our house is an older cottage with 1950's grandma charm. Expect vintage linoleum, slightly warped floors and doors. That being said, we do have a new bathroom, stove, dishwasher, fridge, roof and mattresses. We live in the house half of the year.
Crystal Lake is a deep, clear, natural glacial lake. 70 feet deep, Crystal clear, spring fed. Widely considered the nicest lake in the area! There is a constant breeze because we are high on a ridge, making Crystal lake a great escape from sticky city life. Our private lake access is directly in front of the house, about 75 feet from the front door. You can chill in hammock, take out the canoe, go for a swim or sun on the deck.
Our house is backed by a golf course, making for picturesque views from both sides of the house. The backyard is flat and a nice spot to throw the frisbee. We also have a toddler slide.
We live in the country so we have all kinds of critters around.
Elk mountain is 10 miles away, a quick 18 minute drive.
We have very comfortable beds. And amazing sunset and sunrise views. You'll have a blast!
Bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, lakefront, lake, backyard, canoe, hammock.
My husband and I will be sleeping elsewhere but will come by to makes sure your are finding everything. If You'll have our cell phone numbers as well. Occasionally we may need to stop in to fix something, or pick something up.
This is a cozy, romantic family cottage, great for curling up to read a great book in. Have fun sledding behind the house with the neighborhood kids, skiing, relaxing by the fire or in a hammock. Watch a movie and sleep in a very comfortable bed. Our vibe is mellow, comfortable and creative. We are popular with artists, ski instructors, families and small groups of friends. We want you to have fun, but we are not the place for an all out party.
We have a 11 month old, and although we have moved things around to do some light child proofing, you are still going to need to keep an eye on your little one. You are free you move things around as you need to...and give us any tips as to how things could be safer! We do have a travel playpen/crib & high chair available if you need it please let us know.
A cat often lives here, although she will not be here during your stay, please keep this in mind if someone in your party has severe allergies.
Please be aware that our deck by the lake does not have a railing yet, making for an awesome view, but maybe not the best place for little ones. Check out the pictures and see what you think.
No smoking inside the house. No pets.
No smoking inside the house please. No pets. Please respect the 2 pm
check out time, as we usually need to get the house turned over the same day. Leave your skis/snowboard outside. There is a cat that often lives here so please be aware if you have severe allergies. Please drive 15 miles or less on the private road around the lake, lots of kids and pets around. Use caution with the lake and the wood stove. State law asks that you bring a life preservers if you take the canoe ( they should be under it). No parties.
I am from Northern Virginia ( near Washington DC) originally and I have lived in many places around the US. I am currently in Pennsylvania. I am an artist and ski instructor. I love to travel, I love animals, hiking, and being outside.
Artists and those needing a meditative escape have been coming to stay for years, and I love to share the healing creative energy of this house.
My husband Scott is my co-host, he is a chef and a ski instructor. Would you like him to make you a dinner during your stay? It's delicious and can be arranged for a small fee!
