Crosslake (Cross Lake) cabin description

Come listen to the wind whisper through the trees, the gentle waves against the shores of Bertha Lake and step into a time when things were simpler and back to nature.

Relax, unwind get away, play, bathe in the sun, go swimming, boat and see the lakes of the Whitefish Chain, bird watch, fish off the dock or sit around the fire and roast some marsh mellows. Take a walk and explore 20 acres of wilderness. If that's not enough, you're just minutes from golfing, shopping dining and dancing. You can even take in a new movie!

                        This vacation home is truly rustic in such an amazing way. From the stove, the wooden beams, the decor, and stone fireplace it really felt like a cozy old cabin, but it was very spacious. For the age of the home, I was surprised how large the one bathroom was. The property is very secluded. We did a lot of fishing (caught crappies, northern pike, bass, rockbass and sunnies), swimming, had bonfires and walked the .4 mile driveway. The dogs loved the water, and although there is not a beach, the water right off the deck is not "weedy" and starts out pretty shallow. Perfect for cooling off. The sunsets from this side of the lake were also amazing!!! They provided a lot of chairs outside so you don't really have to bring much. There were lots of fans too since there is no air conditioning. The boat launch was only about 2 miles away and was very convenient. Hope to be back!!

                        This is a very comfortable, rustic cabin in a beautiful area. The kitchen is spacious for a place of this age, and it was well-equipped. The setting was very peaceful, and my young daughter enjoyed "nature walks" down the long driveway through the woods. We caught a lot of fish off the dock, mostly small but some "keepers" (though we didn't keep). The lake was fairly quiet mid-week but noisier on the weekends (which is typical). There is not a beach to speak of, but the lake bottom was fairly sandy and my kids enjoyed swimming and paddling around. We used the fireplace on the cool mornings, and the firepit on the cool evenings. It was a wonderful, relaxing week away from it all. Recommended.

                        The cabin was exactly as described. The photos were pretty accurate to what we found when we arrived at the cabin. The property was clean. There was an issue with the washing machine but was taken care of quickly the next day. I would recommend this property to a friend. We enjoyed the Stonehouse in Nisswa for breakfast items. Also, Giovanni's Pizza in Pequot lakes was good. The ice cream parlor in Pequot Lakes was a favorite.

                        We had a great time, it is just a wonderful older home that takes you back to simpler times. All of the amenities are there, we enjoyed NO TV, although we did bring a small TV for movies at night or the occasional video game. Great privacy and good fishing right off the dock. Beautiful view and firepit. Easy access to the chain. Highly recommend !

                        My familiy Witchwater get away was perfect. The pictures and description on web-site was right on. Working with Jodie was a pleasure. The cabin was rustic but extremly comfortable just what we were looking for, " the up north expereance". Looking forward to an opportuniity to return. Highly recommened !!

                        Unfortunately there were a number of problems with the property. The listing said Rustic and it was. Had water problems starting the first day - sand in the pipes, oven didn't work. The manager was very responsive got someone out to fix it but problem reoccured within a day. Oven never worked and after the repair person looked at it the stove had a major gas smell so we didn't use it the rest of the week. :( bummer. Outdoor furniture was broken and/or dirty. View was beautiful but it needs work. Asked for a partial refund, did not get it. We left early.

                        Manager response: I am sorry the urge to leave early was felt. The property has so much to offer! Most of the issues were fixed within a couple of days. I do feel a need to explain some things. A new well had been installed and with the crystal clear water came a bit of sand. The pipes were flushed again, but there is still sand. This is common with some of the wells in our area. The faucet screens will have to be emptied as they get plugged with sand. As for the stove/oven, there were no issues with previous renters or the following renters. The stove/oven is from the 1950's. As in the good old days, the gas is turned on when is use and burners are lit with a match stick. Complete lighting directions are now posted. All suggestions to help make your getaway as pleasant as possible are appreciated.

                        We had the pleasure of renting this property for the past 4 years until purchasing a place of our own on the Whitefish Chain this year. If you are looking for a true up north experience on the Whitefish Chain, this property offers 350 feet of shoreline and 19 acres of total privacy. The rustic cabin gives you that true up north cabin feel, while being in the heart of the finest chain of lakes in Minnesota. This location is very private with the whole 19 acres fully wooded and the wildlife is spectacular, from the deer to the birds there is no shortage of nature to appreciate. Our kids would actually pitch a tent outside looking over the lake and spend some nights "camping out" and other nights in the cabin. This is truly an amazing piece of property and a great experience for the entire family.
