What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Crystal Lake

Marathon and harvest meat market. Neighborhood unique mix with many cultures. Love going out to eat with friends and family

We know all of our neighbors, and can count on them to have our best interest at heart. The trees are homes to many varieties of birds and there are many squirrels. I am 2 blocks away from a nice sized lake which I enjoy recreationally.

Our small down town with its little shops bars and restaurant, it also has a nice little park in the middle of town that people walk through and sit on benches and they hold events there a few times a month

clubhouse pool quiet streets close to groceries to drug store cab walk if i wanted to restaurants fast food close packages safe to leave a doos=r astep

The fast food restaurant is very convenient and close to me Be Street Smart When Living in a Bad Neighborhood.
