Property description

This cabin, part of West Crooked Lake Resort, located on West Crooked Lake in Nevis, Minnesota, is a very clean and well maintained cabin. The large main bedroom contains a queen bed and the second bedroom a full bed. The living area has a futon that sleeps 2, so the cabin sleeps up to 6 people comfortably. The main bedroom has a sliding glass patio door with access to an extra large deck where you can relax and enjoy a wonderful view of West Crooked Lake.

We provide complete bed linens. We supply toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and hand soap. You will need to bring your own bath and kitchen towels. Free Wi-Fi is part of your stay. This is a non-smoking cabin.

West Crooked Lake Resort, nestled along 400 feet of lakeshore, is a family-friendly resort located in the Paul Bunyan State Forest, surrounded by towering pines. We are a year-round resort, situated on the northeast shore of West Crooked Lake. While our location is quiet and serene, we are only 15 miles NE of Park Rapids, MN and 15 miles SW of Walker, MN, where opportunities for shopping, dining, and recreation are plentiful.

We provide activities on the resort for everyone. Although most of our guests like to fish, if that isn’t your thing, there are many other activities to enjoy. Build a sand castle on our sandy beach, swim in the gradual slope of the lake, play on the trampoline, take a leisurely stroll of the lake on a kayak, paddleboat, or canoe, or find time to enjoy them all. Enjoy a book from our lodge while relaxing on the beach. If the weather isn't cooperating, we also have many movies for the kids and adults, or board games for the whole family. You will also find yard games like volleyball, tetherball, badminton, basketball, croquet, and more! And just for the kids, we offer scheduled activities Tuesday and Thursday, and Wednesday is movie night.

The area offers many interesting and exciting attractions, such as Itasca State Park where the Mississippi Headwaters is located, a local winery, a fun park, the Heartland Trail (a paved trail, excellent for biking, walking, or rollerblading in the summer, and snowmobiling in the winter through the beautiful countryside), Northern Lights Casino, and many shopping and dining choices. Dorset, the “restaurant capital of the world” is just minutes from the resort.

Whether you want a summer vacation, to watch the leaves fall, or a snowmobiling trip, West Crooked Lake Resort can accommodate any adventure you're looking for.

Winter in Minnesota is an amazing time. Not only are there an abundance of ways to enjoy the snow, but the scenery is simply breathtaking. The snow covered pine trees and lakes are like something straight out of a picture. The crispness of the cold air makes the star-filled sky on a clear evening seem like they are within reach, and the moon shines so bright, it illuminates the snow. It’s an experience even those who are not fans of winter would find hard to dislike.

If it’s a winter vacation you want, West Crooked Lake Resort provides comfortable accommodations for large snowmobiling groups or just getting away with some friends. Ice fish all day, snowmobile directly from your cabin to one of the many nearby groomed trails, cross-country ski on local trails, or just spend your time in the warm and cozy cabin enjoying the Northwoods.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We grew up in Iowa but spent many summers vacationing in the beautiful Northwoods of Minnesota. We loved being up here every time we came, and knew this is where we wanted to be.

Why Park Rapids:
When we were ready to purchase a resort, we knew what we had in mind for a resort. After looking at many resorts, we visited West Crooked Lake Resort and both knew instantly this was the one. Located in a quiet wooded area, the cabins sit on the spacious grounds overlooking a secluded, beautiful lake. This is definitely a family vacation spot, with something for everyone - a large sandy beach with a water trampoline, canoe, and paddleboat; boats for fishing, or just touring the lake; activities for the kids; plenty of nature seeking; and of course, listening to the loons calling.
