Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Restful Lakeside home
This clean and relaxing cottage has comfortable beds and couches with a great little balcony to sit and have breakfast in the cool of the morning. The dock and lawn are perfect spots for enjoying the water or an evening fire while darkness descends. The location has access for heading north or south to the ocean or city, but I usually prefer staying put and reading or looking for the eagles and loans. Susan and Allen are great hosts.

Restful, Relaxing, Refreshing!
This beautiful, comfortable home on the lake has all the amenities you need with anything you might want nearby! A quiet place without being secluded. The waterfront has perfect access for adults and children from the shore with plenty of space for boats and kayaks from the dock. The owners are also nearby if you have a question. So much wildlife! We watched 2 eagles from the front porch! We will definitely be back!

A little slice of heaven
I have been coming to Crystal Cottage for my vacation for quite a few years now, and it always is a delight. The cottage is right on the water, with lots to do on the lake as well as locally. But mostly I don’t want to take day trips because I enjoy being on the lake so much. Just sitting on the balcony with a book and a bottle of water is an easy way to spend a summer day. The cottage itself has absolutely everything I’ve needed, including great kayaks and all the water floats you could possibly want. The cottage itself is neat and clean and ready to become home within an hour of my arrival. The new air conditioning unit was a welcome addition on those super hot days. Susan and Allen are wonderful, friendly, and helpful. I’ll never look elsewhere to vacation!

Wonderful stay
Crystal cottage was the perfect get-away for 3 friends. The home is spotless, fully equipped with everything you would need, and adorable. You can enjoy the lake view from the deck or the patio surrounding a chiminea. The owners have provided plenty of "lake toys" to enjoy the water, and the water is crystal clear. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer or more convenient place to spend a relaxing week on the water.

Susan, I have lost the information to contact you! I loved your lakeside rental and need to make payment for reservation end of July 2021. PLEASE CALL ME at 720-315-2594. This place is fantastic and a great place to retreat after the pandemic craze. I love the last time we were there when we rented the sail boat. We had a blast! Hope to hear from you soon!

Wonderful
What a wonderful, relaxing spot on a crystal clean lake. The owner has really gone to lengths to make sure your stay is comfortable. The house has lots of charm with all the little touches. You really don't need to bring anything other than your clothes and food - everything else is there. Everything you would want for a lakeside vacation is here - kayaks, relaxing views from the deck or the chiminea, swimming, pool table, floats, grill, and more. The owner is very responsive and helpful.
