    A wonderful place to stay

    We stayed as a family (couple with our toddler) and all of us loved it.
    The house enjoys a perfect location.
    The house is super comfortable and not missing anything.
    The only problem: we couldn't stay for more than 1 week!

    Wonderful Cozy Cottage

    We loved so much staying at Lynda and Ben's place that we have been here twice. Lynda and Ben are great hosts and super helpful! We came in September 2020 and spent Christmas time as well for the last two weeks in December. As a great surprise for us, Lynda set up an amazing Christmas Tree.

    The house is perfect to relax, has a wonderful terrace with BBQ where we used to have breakfast almost every morning (during our stay in September). Our 4 year old daughter loved the play ground they have in the backyard. The house also has private access to a lake and during the night we enjoyed the fire pit!!

    From a cleanliness point of view everything was spotless when we arrived and all bed linens where in individual bags. They strictly follow Covid-19 guidelines. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook at home. There are shops and restaurants 5min away by car.

    The house is in Orleans, which has easy access to great beaches, like Skaket beach and Nauset beach. Our favorite is Skaket beach because of the amazing sunset views. It is also very well located if you want to take quick day trips to Truro and Provincetown.
    We are planning to come back again, We highly recommend it!!

    Beautiful House and Location

    My family recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. The house had everything we needed with plenty of space for our 2 kids and dog. We took advantage of the large deck and fire pit every day. With COVID-19 it was great to be able to cook or BBQ and eat at home when we wanted.

    Crystal Lake was very clean and another great way to enjoy the sun and water without dealing with crowded beaches. Though, if you want to go to the beach there are two great beaches (Skaket and Nauset) within 10 minutes. This location in Orleans was so close to anything we wanted to do.

    I would also like to say how great Lynda and Ben were. Dealing with the new COVID-19 protocols adds a lot of work and they followed everything and made my wife and I feel very comfortable and safe in the home.

    Nice Valentines Day Weekend Getaway

    My wife and I enjoy a nice weekend on the Cape...especially during the off season. The Crystal Lake Bungalow was a nice find. Quiet, clean and comfortable. The owner, Lynda, was very nice, responsive and easy to reach.

    We stayed in the master bedroom on a very comfortable bed. We are in our sixties so a good night's sleep is very important to us. We didn't do much cooking but found the kitchen to be clean and well equipped. The shower was awesome, lots of hot water.
    />The location (Orleans) was about an hour ride to P-Town and the National Seashore was just up the road for a nice beach walk. We'll be renting again next year.

    Great House, Great Hosts!

    Ben & Lynda are warm hosts and have provided everything you could need for a carefree vacation! Our sons loved the kayaking and fire pit, the pooch was comfy and we loved having the inviting master away from the living area. The kitchen is the best equipped I have ever stayed in! We will definitely be back!

    Wonderful Stay!

    Our stay at the bungalow was lovely. Everything you could need was provided by very accomodating property ownders Lynda and Ben. The home was clean, comfortable and allowed us to keep our two dogs with us for vacation. The property was well maintained and access to the pond and the use of the kayaks was a bonus for our boys. We enjoyed the fire pit as well. Though the home does not have A/C, we were never warm with the breezes that flowed through the bungalow and fans available to keep the air moving. For a small family, the perfect home base for the Cape. Worth considering if you want to stay in the area. Super close to Nauset Beach. show more show less

    Nearly perfect Cape Cod vacation!

    We had a wonderful weeklong stay at this home this past summer. The bungalow was the perfect place to stay and relax, being just a mile to the center of Orleans. Everything we needed was there, including bath and bed linens! A private dock on Crystal Lake is a short walk down a path from the rear of the bungalow where we were able to use our paddleboards (the rental also allowed the use of canoes and kayaks provided by the owners). The only thing that would have made the vacation a perfect one would have been to have our entire family there. We'll be back there for next summer...this time with everyone! show more show less

    Wonderful cottage, wonderful time

    My wife and two teenage sons visited late May of 2019 and enjoyed this wonderful cottage. The location on Crystal Lake is ideal, the cottage is beautifully updated and the amenities (not only shampoo and lotions, but well-stocked firewood) were outstanding. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, grilling on the deck and hunkering down during a rainstorm. My sister and her two teens joined us for several days, and there was room for seven. And the owners, Lynda and Ben, are great folks.

    A beautiful site on a lake on Cape Cod!

    My husband and I had a great time on Cape Cod. We've not been there for some time and it felt like coming home! Our new home away from home was just great. The bungalow was very comfortable and the surroundings were serene. We were able to use the canoe on the beautiful lake and that was an added bonus. Our host were very gracious and welcoming. We do hope to come back soon!

    A Definite Favourite!

    Coming from the UK, we have been regular visitors to the Cape over the last 10 years or so, constantly seeking the perfect property. Three years ago, we stayed at Crystal Lake and had a fantastic time - the lake, with the craft provided, and the fire pit, ensured that there was something to keep my husband occupied, while I sat on the deck and read or watched the birds, when I didn't fancy being active.

    This year, having decided to revisit Portugal, I just happened to notice that the Bungalow was free on the dates we were able to go, so we booked it - the only place we have ever re-visited. And we have just returned from another wonderful trip. The Fagens are so welcoming and helpful - they indulged my husband's pyromaniac tendencies by providing him with an endless source of wood to burn, and the addition of a couple of kayaks meant that he was able to spend even more time on the lake. The sign of a good rental for us was that we didn't feel that we had to go out all day, every day. Although we did re-visit a lot of our favourite places, there were a couple of days when the only trip out was to the Fish Market or Grocery Store, to re-stock. We swam there, watched the turtles, fantasized about living there, and generally chilled out. We really didn't want to come home at the end of our fortnight. And we can't wait to go back - here's hoping!
    As there are only the 2 of us, the single bathroom wasn't a problem, but overall, the house is well-equipped and - crucially - the living room furniture is comfortable for sitting, once the marshmallows are done and we finally retreat indoors! The house's location is great, too - not too far from shops, beaches and The Hole-in-One! All-in-all, a perfect holiday base.

    Ben and Lynda have owned and rented the property since 1992. Since acquiring the property we have gutted and renovated the Bungalow kitchen and bathroom, added a 600 square foot deck, built a fire pit, added a children's playscape and added a large lake float - 2 canoes, 2 kayaks and a rowboat. In 2020 we added air conditioning in each bedroom and in the common area. Beginning in the early 2000's we began accepting one family pet. In the summer of 2010, we began providing bed linens and bath towels, along with a variety of other amenities. All our guests need to bring is themselves, their food, beach chairs, bikes and clothes.

    Our primary goal is to make our property is as family friendly as possible. Over the years - we have surveyed our guests about the accommodations - so that we could make improvements which would make our guests feel as though they were returning to THEIR family vacation spot.

    What is special about this property?
    The Bungalow is a warm and inviting house. It is close to all the activities that the Town of Orleans has to offer. We Love to host families and have attempted to make the property as family friendly as possible. Long before it was fashionable, we began accepting the family pet. We provided sheets and towels long before other owners and we continue to update and upgrade furnishings on a regular basis.

    What is special about your town?
    Orleans is more than a resort destination. There are town beaches on both the Atlantic and Cape Cod Bay. There are a number of fresh water ponds, the Cape Cod Baseball League, the local theatre, a plethora of shops, restaurants and art galleries. There is something for all age groups and all interests in Orleans. Orleans is a thriving year round community which just happens to have a thriving summer guest population.
