kent peterson purchased this House in 2002
Why kent peterson chose Crosslake
I started coming up to the Crosslake area in the early 1960's when I attended a summer camp on Trout Lake and have been visiting ever since. I purchased the home on Ox Lake in 2002 because of the setting of the property and its access to the two lake areas.
What makes this House unique
The most enjoyable benefit has to be the view of the island. The beautiful tree's and the quite location are hard to beat. Ox Lake is a very clear lake and with no public access and its not to busy and the fishing is great. Having access to the Whitefish chain offers many additional boating possibilities and access to Restaurants from the water.

Island View Retreat
This property has everything we could expect for a family vacation. Plenty of space to visit, to prepare and share meals, spend time on a peaceful and beautiful lake, taking a boat, a canoe, a kayak, or a paddle board for an adventure or a quiet paddle. The cabin itself is beautiful and accommodating, with touches both old and new: fieldstone foundations, fireplace, gorgeous woodwork, stone tile and hardwood floors, and a large kitchen. The cabin also boasts recreational equipment for indoor activities in its own game room. Outdoor spaces included a generous fire ring, adirondack chairs for reading and admiring the beautiful lake views, a deck, hammock, and a large lakeside dock. We all enjoyed this place's many amenities.
New favorite vacation spot
This property has the warmth and charm of my favorite childhood vacation spot. Not fancy but relaxing and homey. Beautiful clear lake and great dock and water toys
Wonderful place-a MUST!
Beautiful property, lake and plenty of toys and the tranquility is indescribable. The home is very clean, and well appointed with plenty of room to spread out. This is a must stay for larger groups.
This is a beautiful area with lots to do! We enjoyed our stay and came home rested
Relaxing property and lake
Cabin and property provides many nice places to relax and enjoy quiet time or table activities. Lake is very quiet and great for fishing, kayak, swimming. Raft offshore was a favorite place to hang out. Cabin is older but in great shape and has a lot of charm. Single bathroom on the main floor should be considered if thinking about larger groups. Would return to this property without concern.
Beautiful week on Ox Lake
This is a lovely old lake home with some modern updates. It has a lovely calm feel to the house. Our group of 9 really enjoyed themselves. We loved eating on the deck and taking in the beautiful view. We were lucky that the weather was very moderate (low 80's) and that it cooled off nicely at night. The many ceiling fans kept the temperature very comfortable. On the not so lucky side, there was a huge hatch of mosquitos --the grocery store was sold out of bug spray! We managed pretty well and all brought home numerous bites. This is just Mother Nature and not anything that could be controlled.
We also enjoyed using the kayaks, Stand up paddle board and canoes. Our kids are all adults but that doesn't mean they don't like extra water toys! The raft off shore was also enjoyed and utilized.
A wonderful family week at the lake.
