About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6, maximum allowed)

This property is located between Ox Lake and Loon Lake of the Whitefish Chain, and has frontage on both lakes. The lake home faces Ox Lake. Ox lake has no public boat access/launch. This means it is a quieter lake with better than average fishing.

We have docks on both lakes, but you will only be able to launch your own boat on the Whitefish Chain side of the property. We furnish a rowboat, canoe, paddle boat, and kayaks free on the Ox Lake side. A newer 9.9HP 4-stroke Yamaha outboard motor can be rented and comes on an aluminum fishing boat. Pontoon boats can be rented on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes. County Road. 66 passes through the west side of this large property. The road is over 350 ft. from the home, so you see no traffic and it is still very peaceful. Ox Lake is a 254 acre, 72 ft deep, extreme clear lake with no public access.

Ox lake is known for it's pristine beauty and fantastic fishing for bass and panfish. Ox has a pine studded island that eagles are currently nesting on - bring your camera!

From the Loon lake dock, you can explore the 13 lakes of the Whitefish Chain with its bars, restaurants, and water sports.

Back at the lake home you can gather around the 17 ft tall, fieldstone fireplace in the great room or enjoy the peaceful outdoors on more than 800 sq. ft. of decks. The new lakeside deck is 58 ft wide and has views you will never forget. The lakeside firepit is also a favorite spot.

There are 7 sliding glass doors and lots of windows in this 3000 sq. ft home so you can enjoy nature from the inside too! The 4 season porch is a wonderful room for casual meals or curling up with a book. The large master bedroom (14X18) has it own sliding glass door to the deck. All bedrooms have queen sized beds. Ask about special fishing guide rates for renters! Maximum number of guests is 6 people.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: In the early 80's I visited the Whitefish Chain area and decided that I wanted to spend as much of my free time there as possible. My favorite lakes were Trout and Ox lakes because they were the clearest lakes in the area. I bought my 1st cabin in 1982. It faced Ox Lake and also had a dock on Loon lake. Ox lake has no public access so it is still very pristine and is loaded with fish. I also kept a boat on Loon lake so I could enjoy everything that the Whitefish Chain had to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Crosslake, MN, USA:
Having had a cabin on Ox Lake for many years, I decided that I wanted to build a lake home. I waited 5 years for the perfect piece of land to become available. It is a 450 ft deep lot with Ox Lake on one end and Loon Lake on the other. Route 66 runs through the Loon Lake end of the land. The home was built facing Ox Lake to enjoy the large Norway Pines, Eagles, and serenity offer by that lake. My dock on Loon Lake gives me access to the Whitefish Chain and all of it's fun.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be amazed by the clarity of Ox Lake. It's like boating on an aquarium. If you choose to, you can canoe to the north end of the lake, portage over the beaver dam, & you are on Little Ox Lake. This is a small 60 ft deep lake with NO CABINS! Great fishing in a wilderness setting. You have free use of our canoe, paddleboat, rowboat, and kayaks. There is also a 14 ft fishing boat with a newer Yamaha 4-stroke 9.9 HP outboard that can be rented very reasonably for using on Ox lake. On the Loon lake side you have dockage available on our 30 ft long dock. This property is large, beautiful and very quiet.
