This house was my former wife's house who passed away on Valentine's day 2013. The reason for the cottage rental is for taxes, Insurance & upkeep only. Due to our children's age we have all agreed to keep the cottage until they are settled down with there hectic life's and older. Also if I don't return your call in 24hrs I apologize, Please call back as I have gotten incomplete phone numbers due to bad connections and static. I then am unable to call back.

Dan Thelen purchased this cottage in 1990

This is a one of a kind property. We have one neighbor to the East of the property. I've heard from renters of other property's who say when the went out on the porch for coffee in the morning the also had it with the neighbor's next door. Unless your on the lake Island this is the only property without neighbor's and arms length away to either side. It is very peaceful. And every neighbor is like a family member to myself and my kids they are the very best.......

This property has the most lake frontage of any other properties on Crystal lake that rents. Most properties on this lake have neighbors on both sides of the property and 50 feet or less of property. When renting from us you will not need to carry the kids and chairs across the road as most cottages. This is 1 of two propertys between the sail boat club and Roller Rink which is on the lake side all others are across the street from the lake.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
The week we stayed, the weather and water were a little cool. So we didn't do much swimming, but the cottage provided plenty of room for other activities. There is plenty of lawn space to set up lawn games, and enough room inside where we set up another six foot table for games and eating, as we had 15 family members there. The deck is huge, and a great place to sit outside with a morning coffee. For future renters, there is a pantry and cupboard space to put your own food; and there are lots of kitchen utensils. The one thing that a renter may want to bring is a bathmat and something to plug the drain in the tub, if they have kids that are too little for a shower.

There is a race track in Crystal for a Saturday night activity, and it is just under 5 miles around the lake - perfect for walking or biking. Thanks for the location for a relaxing week. I don't know of any other place that allows for such a great view of the lake from every room.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family goes to a new lake rental every summer, This place was wonderful and very affordable compared to others on these sites. There was a large deck with plenty of room for everyone as well as, a nice gas grill and fire pit for roasting marshmallows in the evening. The swimming was great off the end of the dock but a little weedy between the shore and the end of the dock, I will say the sea wall is high so little ones can not access water on their own, but at the end of the dock is a ladder and the water is very shallow for a long ways out. We brought our own boat for tubing and fishing, I must say we caught some big fish at this lake, the little town about 1mile down the street has a public beach and park that we went to a few times and a great ice cream shop that had excellent ice cream. The kids also enjoyed going to the roller ring about 1 or 2 blocks down the street but it is only open on weekends and the cheap movie theater in town is also only open on weekends so we didn't enjoy them as much as we would have liked to.

The lake very large and beautiful, lots of boats to see, very relaxing, The inside of the cabin is nice but I would recommend a little more pots and pans and no more then 8 people to sleep comfortably, There are 2 bedrooms 1 w/king, and 1/w queen and set of bunk beds and a small laundry room with a set of bunk beds. It was nice having the washer and dryer as well as, a dish washer and satellite tv, we enjoyed the board games that where there and also went on some nice walks.

Over-all, the cabin is very nice, cozy, relaxing, and we would definitely return again, The owner Dan was very nice and helpful, Great people and a very great place to rent.

Owner's Response: I have since added more pots and pans for your convenience. There is room for the spare of the moment quest if they have an air mattress in the Living room/Kitchen area if one preferred. Over all a wonderful renter and I appreciate the suggestions. Thanks Dan

Wonderful Place to Spend a Week!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to hang out with family! My kids had a great time in the lake as well as roasting marshmallows at the fire pit. The view from the porch was fantastic; a great place to just sit, relax and watch the boats go by. The owners were very nice and easygoing. Just overall a great place to spend a week and get away from every day life. Highly recommended.
