The view from the front porch is just beautiful! I also enjoyed the short walk to the quaint downtown.

The location, trail, local shops and lake are fabulous. Crystal Lake is clear and enjoyable. The house was as described, and exceeded expectations. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and more than functional. Most important, this was the cleanest rental that we have ever stayed in. Spotless. An old cottage is delightful if it is clean.

The location was great! The home provided everything we needed. One recommendation: the two sets of bunkbeds could use an upgrade on the mattresses-especially the lower one in the farthest room, otherwise it was wonderful. (also it's good to remember there is no internet)

We had a wonderful stay at the Sunset View Retreat! Absolutely love the home and beautiful view of Crystal Lake. The home was very clean and cozy. I also loved all of the family games provided.

We had a wonderful stay at this house. It has a beautiful view of the lake, its a couple of blocks from downtown Beulah, its close to a ton of walking trails, Frankfort, platte river, Empire and other great cities. The legacy sculpture art park is on the grounds of chrystal mountain ski resort and it is awesome. The house was well equipped and comfortable. We took our dog and the front yard is fenced. An added bonus. It was clean. I love the cobalt blue color of the house. We would go again.

The house was overall very nice. We had difficulty with parking. We were given no direction as to where to park and different rules in area. Some neighbors were extremely nice and accommodating while others were rude. We also were given no direction as to what to do with trash so we just left it in bags at home. The view is stunning and the fence was perfect.

Great location - beautiful sunsets , close to town and right on the bike and walking path. Large, gated front yard which is unique for the area and great for kids. A little challenging for older adults due to steep narrow stairs to the bedrooms, but good for young families or a few couples.

Amazing views and so close to town! Plenty of amenities (kayak, beach toys, dock....) all made it super easy for us to jump right in and make this our home for the week! This place is situated right on the walking trail that is perfect for your early morning walks! The only thing missing are a couple of bikes which you can bring with you or rent in town! Overall a great place to set up camp for exploring this beautiful part of our state!

Great location, spotlessly clean, no air conditioning and no WiFi
We apologize this home does not have wifi or air conditioning as an amenities. We are sorry for any inconvenience and frustrations this may have caused. We hope we have the chance to host you again in the future.

We felt welcomed and taken care of as soon as we arrived. The house was clean and organized. Perhaps not spacious but properly proportioned. Walking distance to so much, including the incredible blue Crystal Lake.
