Crosslake (Cross Lake) cabin description

Our custom built cabin in a premier location on Rush Lake on the Whitefish Chain, offers you a place to retreat and experience as much or as little as you like during your stay. The setting with 125ft. of sandy shoreline offers gorgeous tranquil views of the lake. With or without coffee in hand, you will wake up and be drawn to the deck to look over the lake and let the view sink in as your eyes come into focus. We are very fortunate to be located on Rush because it is perfectly central to all the major lakes on the chain. This location makes it less than a 5 minute drive to town including Reeds (the grocery store), restaurants, Dairy Queen and The Chocolate Ox (for ice cream), and all the fun little shops Crosslake has to offer. You really capitalize on the location if you have use of a boat. There is good fishing on Rush and you have very easy access to surrounding lakes for fishing or to boat-up restaurants or simply to cruise “The Chain.” Where you stay on the chain is very important to consider because the location of many cabins make the trip to town or to restaurants by car OR boat much more time-consuming. Other activities within a 5 minute car ride are tennis courts, huge kids playground and miniature golf.

The cabin is thoughtfully designed with very generously sized bedrooms with a variety of bed sizes including 2 kings, 3 queens, a beautiful crib, and 2 sets of custom built twin bunk beds…all quality mattresses, no futons or roll-aways and with hygienic freshly cleaned coverings over all mattresses. The cabin sleeps 10-12 people.

The spacious open floor plan on the main level offers stunning views of the lake with windows spanning the entire lakeside of the cabin. The fully-equipped cook’s kitchen is open to the dining and living rooms. This enables families, friends and the cooks to interact at all times. There is a breakfast bar perfect for kids to eat at or to serve hors d’ouevres. The kitchen is spacious enough for several people to be part of the cooking and clean-up process. One of the best features of the entire cabin is the huge wrap-around deck spanning the entire lakeside and wrapping around to the dining room. It is accessible through 2 different sets of sliding glass doors making the outdoors always just a step away.

The cabin also features a huge flat concrete driveway with a basketball hoop and is suitable for many other activities. There is an outdoor fire pit ideally situated overlooking the lake, perfect for watching the moonlight shimmer on the water while listening to the waves gently roll and the loons call to one another.

              Owner info

              About the owner: My name is Ben Wismer and I am the proud owner of our beautiful cabin retreat on Rush Lake. My father custom built the cabin with careful attention to detail. His foresight and planning regarding the siting of the cabin, the floor plan and the care taken in each step of the building process has left us with a gorgeous lakehome to enjoy in an ideal location on the premier Whitefish Chain of lakes. In addition to the cabin itself, the two things that make this the ultimate MN destination are the connection you feel with nature and the sense of adventure you feel through the array of activities available both on or off the lake. If nature, tranquility and time to reflect is what you are looking for, go no further. If swimming, boating, fishing, waterskiing or golf trip your trigger, go no further. If you are like me, you want to do it ALL...or at least try! What you don't fit in this time, you fit in next time.

              Why the Owner Chose Crosslake (Cross Lake):
              My grandfather receives the credit for his foresight over 50 years ago that The Whitefish Chain of lakes would someday be one of Minnesota and the mid-west's premier destinations. Having a custom built lakehome retreat was a dream shared by several generations of my family as well as the vast majority of Minnesotans. We invested in this location because of the 13 lakes there are to explore and because of the charm and amenities that the town of Crosslake has to offer. Having said that, our particular location on the chain is worth pointing out. Most of the restaurants, shops, gas stations, grocery store are all located within just a 5 minute drive of our cabin whereas cabins on many of the other lakes can be 15-25 minutes to town. If you are fishing or boating to restaurants our location is very hard to beat in terms of proximity to restaurants and central location on the chain itself. A 5-10 minute one-way boat ride can easily be a 30 minute one-way journey or more from other locations on the chain.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Having vacationed in Crosslake at our cabin my entire life, I know close to everything there is to do up there. For me, top priorities every year are boating, waterskiing (now tubing for my kids), swimming, dining at local restaurants, basketball in our driveway, relaxing on the wrap-around deck taking in the lake view. We are on Anchor Point Road which is a delightful road for walking, jogging or biking one of which I fit in almost every day. In the evening you will often encounter deer along the road.
