About the Property
A Perfect Cabin On A Perfect Lake
Our Lake Cabin was completely renovated in modern Scandinavian design and completed in 2015. It sits just off of one of the most desired and quiet lakes in Minnesota, Trout Lake, on the Whitefish Chain.
Relax out on the back deck, on the dock, or even in the sauna, all of which overlook the lake and its sunset.
The cabin has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor/ attached bathrooms, and an upstairs loft with a king size bed/ 2 twin beds. It also has a rec room above the garage, complete with a large couch, TV, and poker/ card table. The kitchen has been fully remodeled, complete with all new stainless appliances. A full deck sits on the north side with a gas grill and chiminea that looks out to Big Trout Lake, one of the only freshwater coral lakes in the US. Enjoy Smores and your favorite beverage of choice by our large fire pit right off the water.
Bring your family and come check out our piece of paradise!

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My wife grew up in Brainerd, MN, the closest airport to the property, operated by Delta airlines. Her deal was, if we live in TX, we will have to find a way to spend time in MN for the summer. This place has a true spot in our hearts and we just wish we had more time to spend up there- and want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do! This year is special because it is completely remodeled the way we (she) wanted it, in Scandinavian interior and design. We spent all of last summer and this winter going over plans and it finally has come together. Also, we are avid golfers and have plenty of feedback for other area activities and things to do, please email us if interested in finding out more on the area and what it has to offer. There are plenty of options!
Why the Owner Chose Crosslake, MN, USA:
As stated above, this is the area my wife grew up and the best lake on the Whitefish Chain, a beautiful chain of lakes offering plenty of restaurants and beautiful views to enjoy. We plan on using this property for years to come with our family and decided to open it up to others when we are not around simply because we don't want it to go to waste. At this stage of our lives, we have only been able to use it one month out of the year.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We looked at plenty of other properties all across this chain of lakes, there are plenty in this area worth looking at but Big Trout Lake is very special and anyone familiar with the area will agree. Great swimming and clear water (rock bottom, no weeds!), beautiful sunsets, it is just the lake of choice for us and many others. We prefer the Whitefish Chain because it is a little further north than Gull Lake area, still has multiple lakes and boating opportunities, great people, and beautiful elevation and views in comparison to other areas and lakes. We had a flood two winters ago and had to make a decision whether or not we would just fix it up and sell or go ahead and design our dream cabin (a few years earlier than planned) now and attempt to use it as much as possible. Well...it is nearly finished and we couldn't be happier about the results and times we can see ahead to use the property! We haven't spent enough time to really enjoy the new layout yet but before the flood and still today, we love the view from the upstairs loft. For our guests, there is a king bed and two twins (one big happy family?!), as well as a couple of sitting areas up there to read or enjoy quiet time while overlooking the lake and beautiful pine trees below.-
