Property description

Welcome to our "Eagle View Retreat"! NICE 2 bedroom cabin for rent on Rush Lake of the Whitefish Chain. INCREDIBLE LOCATION 25 mi north of Brainerd. The beautiful Whitefish Chain consists of 14 connected lakes, with 13,000 acres of water, 119 miles of shoreline, and is Minnesota's premier recreational destination! Very clean and new cabin with great "Up North" decor. 8' sliding door to deck which overlooks the lake only 70' away. Beautiful sunrises. 2 bedrooms plus convertible couch in living room, sleeps 7, 1 full bathroom, cable TV, wifi, stereo, washer/dryer, AC, patio, screened porch, picnic table, gas grill, beach, 2 docks, campfire pit, fish cleaning area, canoe + 3 kayaks to use, large cement pad for parking, AND ** we have our own boat landing!

One block out there is a ski run and great swimming sand bar. Plenty of space in the yard for your lawn games.

The Chain offers great boating, (You can boat to 5 restaurants plus the DQ!). The fishing boasts walleye, bass, crappies, northern and pan fish. Along with golf, fine dining, and many activities and festivals, this is one of the most picturesque areas in northern Minnesota! Experience warm summer breezes and gorgeous fall colors. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck while watching a beautiful sunrise. Or mosy down to the dock to stare at the lake, listen to the loons, and watch for a fish to swim by. Have the kids fish off the dock, and cook hot dogs and s'mores over a fire. Go by boat to lunch or dinner, and go out on Lower Whitefish to watch the sun set. There are several options for boat rental right in Crosslake if need be. Our elevation to the lake is gradual, with only 4 steps down to the dock.
Responsible adults over 30 and families. No pets, no smoking in the cabin or the screened porch. No bachelor or bachelorette parties. This is a quiet area, we live right next door. We love our neighbors and we want them to continue to love us. If you want to be loud and party then this property isn't for you. There is a minimum 1 week rental from Sat to Sat. $1700 per week. $500 damage/cleaning deposit required to confirm reservation. Full rent due 2 weeks prior to arrival. Renters to do full cleaning and laundry before departure. If the cabin is not left as you found it and ready for the next renter, then a cleaning fee of up to $350 will be kept out of the deposit. Renters liability for damages or excessive cleaning required is not limited to the amount of the deposit. Renters are liable for full payment for restoration or repair of damages premises or furnishings. Better rates if not peak season, or for longer terms. Please call with any questions!
Thanks, Julia & Doug

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We are a retired couple from Rochester, Mn. We were owners of several business's there up until 2007. We purchased this property when our boys were young, after looking for 17 months! We had both vacationed in this area since we were kids, and enjoy the "up north" laid back lifestyle. We love Mn for spring, summer, and fall and then we winter in Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Crosslake, MN, USA:
Our home is right next door so we are available to help you 7 days a week should the need arise. We do not work through a property management company.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We feel our north country offers the best for whatever you want to do. There is plenty of outdoor fun for all seasons. You can relax as much as you want in the tranquil surroundings of the cabin, read a book, sit in the sun, take a romantic boat ride during sunset, have a glass of wine on the patio, or fish off the dock. Or, we are close to town and all activities so you can also be as busy as you want to be. We are just 1/2 mile away from the lively atmosphere at the Bourban Room for lunch or dinner, or 1 mile to Moonlite Bay with a great outdoor deck with music in the summer, or fine dining at Manhattan Beach with the best sunset view around!
