About Carla Findlater

While it's our new home away from home, I grew up in the surrounding area. Crystal Lake holds many fond memories for our family. My father Harry is the property manager, who is just five minutes away in Plymouth. We're also proud members of the Crystal Lake Advancement Association.

Carla Findlater purchased this cottage in 2012

Map

Crystal Lake is clear and warm, perfect for swimming, kayaking, boating or fishing. The lake and sandy beach is 30 feet from the comfort of the lower level of this house. There are many activities available for your enjoyment in the area. Take a day to see the World famous Road America only minutes away and known for the best road racing. It hosted the 2011 NASCAR race, the American Le Mans Series, three major Vintage Races and the SCCA June Sprints, as well as motorcycle weekend races. If golfing is your interest there are 2 beautiful 18 hole courses nearby, Quit Qui Oc and Sir Lancelot. If you are looking for a challenging course there is Kohler’s world class Black Wolf Run (host of the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open or Whistling Straits (host of the 2010 Men’s PGA). Relax after a day of fun with cocktails or a cookout on the patio. Enjoy a breath taking view of the lake off the deck. Visit the farmers market and the quaint little shops in Elkhart Lake or drive 5 miles south and visit historic downtown Plymouth. Where you can have fun playing mini golf, visit the Water Park, shop for antiques or eat lunch at an old fashioned drive in complete with car hops. If hiking or biking is of interest there are many trails just minutes away in nearby Kettle Moraine State Forest.

Perfect home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family with three kids had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home. It had everything to enjoy, from kayaks to the fire pit. Kids loved fishing, swimming, playing hide and seek in the unique nooks and crannies of the home, and playing foosball. It's a perfect place to relax and unplug. We would most definitely stay there again.

Great getaway home!

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was a perfect weekend getaway home for my friends and I. There were 10 of us in this trip and the house was spacious enough that we did not feel overcrowded. We took full advantage of the living room, the back patio, and the back yard as gathering places for lively conversations and meals. We also used the fire pit to gather around one night.

Pros:

- The house is nicely decorated, comfortable, and clean.

- The owners are responsive in the booking process; and also when we were at the house and we had questions. They replied right away to our emails and texts.

- Some of my friends used the 2 kayaks available and had a lot of fun with that

Cons:

- The kitchen is small so it’s hard to have more than two people work in the space at one time.

- The friends who slept in the downstairs’ pull out couch said it wasn’t the most comfortable, but it’s doable for a short stay. Just a heads up with those with back problems.

Note:

If there are too many things plugged in the kitchen, it might overwhelm the circuit breaker as we had to reset it a few times when we had the griddle, coffee machine, and a waffle maker (which we brought ourselves).

Gorgeous Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

This lake home on Crystal Lake is very comfortable, well appointed, and certainly one that I would rent again. Crystal Lake is small, but gin clear, and we enjoyed use of the kayaks to sight see. Locate not far from hiking trails in the Kettle Moraine area. Also close to local supper clubs in what is called the "holy land" area of Sheboygan/Fond du Lac counties.

The house has everything you'd ever need, including wireless. Gorgeous views of the lake. It's a bit of a climb down from the parking area, so I'd caution anyone with difficulty ambulating stairs.

Relaxing Getaway! (even with two small children)

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the property is beautiful!!! The home is equipped with everything you will need except food and clothes! This made for the perfect 4 day getaway for the four of us. We have two small children who found the beach area to be quite entertaining! They also loved spreading all of their toys out in the upper level along the back of the house which overlooks the lake! What a beautiful, peaceful view! Although the home does not have curtains in any of the rooms, the kiddos were able to nap in the sunshine because they were exhausted! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Our week at this property was fabulous. The house is beautful, sits on the shores of beautiful Crystal Lake. Home comes with access to private pier & alot of fun lake "toys". It will become a summer tradition for us. Owners are teriffic and take great pride on thier home & property. A place to slow down, lay around & watch the sun move arcoss the sky then settle in to admire the vast stars @ night!!! Easy ride from Milwaukee.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lake house. The kids had a blast in the water and the parents enjoyed some relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Andrew and Carla were extremely accommodating and the weather was, too. I highly recommend it!
