FAQ 1 (Frequently Asked Questions) : Is there laundry facilities?
No, you will need to go out in town to do laundry. There are two laundromats within 20 minutes from the cottage.
Is there phone service?
Verizon cellphone coverage is poor. There is a house phone available for guest. Local calls are free. Bring a calling card for regional and long distance calls. The cottage phone number will be provided to you once you sign the rental agreement.
Are there beach chairs?
A few old beach chairs are in the cottage. Bring your own if you are particular. The beach chairs are useful for sitting on the dock or at the sandy beach.
How is the swimming?
The name of the lake says it all, Crystal Lake. The water is comfortable July-September. A sandy beach is close to the cottage and is good for children. The dock, a short 100 steps from the cottage, is great for swimming too. The lake is a mixture of gravel and sand near the dock. Bring water socks if you have sensitive feet.
FAQ 2 (Frequently Asked Questions) : How big is the dock?
The dock is about 15 feet long. It is suitable for boats up to the size of a small motor boat. Larger boats may be able to be moored a few yards off shore. The water gets to a depth of 6 to 10 ft in about 30 feet off shore.
Is there a boat launch?
There is a public boat launch less than a mile up the road. Short of slipping the boat in the water next to the cottage, this launch spot is very convenient.
