"My wife and I have been boating on the Whitefish Chain and spending time in the Crosslake area for the past 5 years. We decided to book a cabin and spend a week on Cross Lake. We picked this spot due to it's location and sunset views, but that is only the start. The cabin is so clean and well maintained. It has a separate grilling "shack" with a Weber gas grill and a charcoal grill. The appliances are all new, the furniture, beds, TV, and other accommodations are all top shelf.
The patio has a glass top table with seating for 6 that overlooks Cross Lake with a spectacular view at any time of the day, but the sunsets are AMAZING!! The entire beach is soft sugar sand all the way out to the end of the dock. There is a fire pit next to the beach that is also a great vantage point to watch the sunset. The wireless boat lift was a major plus for our stay. It was nice not having to tie up the boat and hope the wind and waves didn't destroy it. (One negative is that there is no canopy for the lift so the boat is susceptible to the elements) However, having the lift available is a very nice feature.
I would highly recommend this property to someone looking for a great family vacation. The property lays out perfect for easy access to the town for groceries, ice cream, restaurants, coffee (all within walking distance). Plenty of parking space and a boat landing within half a mile. The cabin itself has 2 bedrooms up and the master in the walkout basement. Two refrigerators, one up and one down helped to keep food and beverages cold. It has one big wall AC unit to cool the house with fans available to move the air. If you don't have a great vacation staying here, it won't be because of the accommodations."

"I grew up going on summer vacations to various lakes throughout northern Minnesota and wanted to introduce my family (wife, 13 and 10-year-old) to the experience for the first time. I spent a significant amount of time looking through all options in the area and spoke to several other homeowners prior to choosing this home. In addition, I have utilized VRBO several times previously. This is a first-rate place to stay and I highly doubt one could find a better choice in the area - my family loved it. It's an absolutely beautiful home in a great location. You walk right out to the lake rather than having to go up and down large stairs. We loaded up at a store before our arrival and cooked many meals and never once experienced a shortage of pans, utensils, blenders, etc. In addition, they had a pantry with basic items in case we had forgotten anything at the store. This is not common with VRBO homes; but came in super handy. It was easy to replenish items the next time we went to the store. It’s a quiet place with very friendly neighbors. We rented a pontoon that easily was tied up to the dock when not in use. We also utilized the fishing rods and fished with the kids right off the dock. They had a blast catching them. The owners also provided some water sport equipment that was thoroughly enjoyed by the family. Another intangible item that this owner provided was a multi-page list covering everything about the house and surrounding area. A great list of restaurants with comments on each, places to shop and visit. I checked in with David a couple times during our stay asking a question or two and he was extremely prompt and helpful with his replies. Plus we always had his cell number if we needed something. We slept as good or better on the beds than we typically do at home. We highly recommend this VRBO home and will absolutely be returning to it the next time we plan a trip to the area."

"From start to finish, Wendy and Gary could not have been more accommodating and informative. Since this was our first time with VRBO, we started with the best. The home was pristine with beautiful window views of the woods, bathrooms with every bedroom, and a kitchen state of the art. The finished basement with games and bar lead outside to fire pit and hot tub. The pontoon took us through the gorgeous chain of lakes with bald eagle nest viewings and sights to last us a lifetime. Many memories made with our family and would highly recommend."

"We just finished a two week stay here. It's our second year staying at this location. It worked great for our large family with ages ranging from 4-90 years old. It has everything you could ever want in a vacation get away from boat lifts, great beach, grill and the best kitchen and gathering room you will ever find. We have stayed in 5 other locations on the Whitefish Chain but this place takes first place. The owner makes you feel right at home and very welcome. We can't say enough about this location. You have to see and be there to fully appreciate it. It's great😀"
