"I am sad to think that someone new is taking our place at this Cabin/Lake Home...It was an amazing week. Lot's of great memories were made. This Lake Home is incredible, so spacious, open to enjoy all's company, but plenty of get-a-way space if need be. I did not come a cross anything I needed in the kitchen that was not available.
The Foosball and bumper pool were a great fill in and was used a lot, then there is the bean bag toss that was also used.
The fire pit is a nice area, the old chairs by the pit were amazingly comfortable and very unique.
The fishing was OK.... we caught Bass, Northern, and walleye. You can catch plenty of pan fish, but never caught any that we considered large enough to keep. We did discover that trolling the shoreline is the way to go...we did catch some nice Bass at the little island right out from the cabin. Leeches and worms were the choice of the week for the fish.... and of course the white twister tails. We did do some night fishing from the dock, caught some nice bull heads and a dog fish, that was all our Grandson was after and he caught one... was nice to watch his happy dance. We were lucky enough to be night fishing during the meteor shower, it was an amazing show, we probably seen 20 shooting objects in the night sky.
The town of Aitkin will have all you need, its about 15 minutes from the cabin. They have a nice grocery store and anything else you would need.
We did go to Bingo at the Legion on Tuesday night (adults only) I won 66.00, had a few drinks...it was fun.
I want to thank the the owners for opening up their great home to us for the week.... it truly was an amazing place.... The Tipton's Cedar Rapids, Iowa"

"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."

"This property is perfect for a family getaway. The cabin was clean, updated and stocked with essentials for our stay. Downstairs was a cute play area for the kids with plenty of toys to keep them entertained. Our 2 1/2 year old son could not get enough of this play room. Upstairs was a loft which would be perfect for older kids as well. The exterior of the cabin was beautiful. We spent a few nights at the fire pit, very relaxing! We also spent many hours on the beach and dock fishing. The beach is amazing. Although there are neighboring properties we were never bothered by others and the property was large enough to make us feel secluded. Would recommend this property to families of young kids, but really anyone would have a great time here!"

"My son attended the Heartland Hockey Camp while I popped in and out as a spectator. This house location is ~10 minutes from the camp, but is set far enough back from the main road that you would think you were in the land of trees and lakes with just a few neighbors.
The house is very quaint and provides all the necessary facilities. Not lavish, but is very clean and a terrific place to kick off the shoes and relax.
Owners were the nicest people you can meet. They go above and beyond any other VRBO owner experience I have had in my many years of renting.
If you are planning on being in the area and weighing out your options (and price is a concern), this rental should be at the top of your list."
