“My wife and I absolutely loved our time at Crystal Lake House. It was extremely well appointed and we felt it was the perfect romantic getaway for the winter. We loved the wood fireplace and fully stocked kitchen. We even played some old board games that we haven't played since we were kids. I can't wait to come back”

“I have been using AirBNB for over ten years and this is simply the BEST place I have ever stayed! The biggest thing to point out is how amazingly kid-friendly Katharine's home is! My son is almost 3 years old and he had an absolute blast! Tons of new toys to play with, a private beach with sand toys and Katharine even lowered the hot tub temperature so he could safely get in for a few dips. The tire swing in the shape of a horse was a BIG HIT! He didn't want to leave!! As a mother it is unbelievably rare to stay in a place that feels so easy. High-chair and pack and play were there ready for us and lots of room for both so we didn't have to struggle. The views of the water were to DIE FOR!! And Katharine even set out a ton of little treats for us! I seem to consistently forget essentials like cooking oil and butter and spices but they were all there for us to enjoy, therefore saving me a trip to the store. I cannot say enough good things about this place! We will definitely be back!”

“This cozy, attractive, and comfortable home nestled in a most scenic lake environment turned out to be a rare find, and contributed significantly to enhancing an already quality itinerary in Nova Scotia. Its central, yet private location, still offered us quick access to a variety of areas by our rental car. Side trips were taken to trek in in Mount Uniake Park, to cycle on trails in the St Margarets Bay area, and to meander in the Waterfront area of Halifax. It also took only under an hour to drive to the Tidal Bore Rafting Resort for our rafting adventure. This lovely lake home is also conveniently situated only 45 minutes access to the Halifax airport. And when our active day was complete, quality time was spent sipping wine while viewing amazing lake sunsets, and enjoying steak and lobster BBQ dinners on the deck. It's lakeshore location would otherwise be a wonderful place simply to relax, and enjoy the lake, if one did not want to leave the area or engage in any other activities. All this was enhanced by an affable greeting from our host, Sean, who during our stay also checked to make certain we were content, and that any of our home-stay needs were met. Thank you for such quality hospitality, Sean, and for making this stay such a pleasant and enjoyable time.”
