"The house and its surroundings are picturesque and did not disappoint. If your interests involve fishing, swimming, paddling, boating or just plain relaxing, look no further than this Lakeside Home.
Our family of five spent a week over the 4th of July and endured nothing but a fabulous time. Ox Lake is a private oasis with minimal fishing pressure and situated just far enough from the quaint town of Crosslake. The seclusion of the Ox Lake was a plus for us as we allowed our three boys (15, 11 and 9) to fish at will from every provided vessel and never worried about their safety.
The real gem is Dick, the owner. He is nice, respectful, available and treated us like family. You will not find a better host.
Thank you for a week of beautiful family memories."

"Walhall Retreat was perfect for our family of four. Sometimes when you go on vacation, I find that it takes a day or two to truly let your hair down and relax. Not here! We were able to find much-need relaxation as soon as we arrived. The cabin is well cared for and well-loved. It oozes history, family, love and years of laughter and memories. We live a few states away and weren't sure which of Minnesota's lakes to pick and from there, which house. Well..we happened upon a real gem.
The cabin is cozy so if you are looking for a sprawling place, this may not suite your needs. It was just right for us and had that "throw back" feel that we gravitate toward in a cabin. They have thought of everything - lots of hooks for towels and clothes; a clean/refurbished bathroom; reading nooks with good lighting; shelves filled with books in case you forgot yours; fishing nets; a "Viking Trail" scavenger hunt for kids; and much much more. Our kids loved the loft sleeping area and we loved the separate breezeway off the kitchen for cards after the kids went to bed. If you need/want TV time during your visit, they have you covered. We never turned it on. Between morning walks, games with the kids, fishing all day, trips to Ben's Bait Shop, Larry's Foods and the ice cream shop in town, who had time/interest?!
We recommend that anyone who books here spends a bit of time at the six-lane bowling alley in town and also hits the road to Zorba's on the Lake about 15 minutes way. We do not own a boat and rented "Blue Betty" the fishing vessel for our stay. Again, it was just perfect for our needs. Kurt made sure it was there upon arrival and magically knew when we needed gas.
Can't say enough about our stay here."

"Recently stayed here for two weeks, This lovely vacation spot is in excellent condition and the location is convenient to everything in the Crosslakes area. The owner is very pleasant and co-operative. Also, we rented the pontoon and it ws a great ride in wonderful condition at a very competitive price. Highly recommended."

"My family of ten enjoyed our time at the cabin. It was clean and neat, and we really enjoyed the facility and lake. There was a contract that said I'd receive my damage deposit back after two weeks... it took almost four. The owner approved my paying a boat launch, indicating he would reimburse me for it. But it remains unpaid and the owner isn't responding to my email."
