Verified reviewexcellent

Crystal barn was simply magnificent - we had the most amazing time there and were so well looked after by such a friendly and accomodating staff! The place itself is beautiful - surrounded by the most spectacular lake and forest in which we spent a day paddling on and walking through! There were no faults to this place - and we will be back again! Regards G&T
