Located in the central lakes area of Minnesota there are many activities to pursue on this lake or within minutes of it. The lake association continues to keep this one of the cleanest lakes in the state. Less congested than the Brainerd Baxter area which is 15 minutes away, the Deerwood-Crosby area is very relaxing and offers some of the best antique shopping, winter or summer trails, fishing in the state. The Mountain Bike trails are some of the best in the country. http://cuyunalakestrail.org/
Year Purchased: 2004
About: We are an early 50's couple with 2 high school / college age kids and live and work in the Rochester MN area. I was born in the Rochester area and met Ann while at college. She was raised in the Lakes area of MN near lake Mille Lacs about 30 miles from our cabin.
Why Deerwood: My wife had been looking for the right place for over a year. - No weeds, no mud, not too many steps to climb up or down when we get old etc. When we drove by my wife recognized it from earlier listings she had seen. It was, for us, the perfect setting and had the potential that we were looking for.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: One of the few places with split field stone retaining walls and foundations. Also the Boathouse is an added plus since you cannot build them anymore only maintain the ones that already exist. As I have mentioned it is one of the cleanest lakes you will ever experience. No resorts or supper clubs on the lake make it very quiet. Views of the lake are available from 3 of the 5 sleeping rooms.
