East Rabbit Lake Retreat

Come experience beautiful and serene East Rabbit Lake and the premier vacation hotspot of the Brainerd Lakes area. Rabbit Retreat is located 10 minutes from the towns of Crosby and Aitkin, and 20 minutes from the cities of Brainerd and Crosslake. The lake has a unique history of being without water for over 40 years during the Crosby area mining days, but today we enjoy crystal clear water with a deep hole of 370 feet. The 640 acre lake is amazingly private and is attached to the more developed West Rabbit Lake through a short boat channel. Our guest apartment was built in 2012 and is equipped with a Tempure-pedic queen bed, all new kitchen appliances, new washer and dryer, Direct TV, CenturyLink internet, tiled shower, and a forced air heating and cooling system. Outside accommodations include a small porch, patio area with table and swivel chairs, a charcoal grill, a fire pit with its own wood pile, your own dock with chairs and, lake access. To enrich your stay here we offer the use of a 14 foot fishing boat with motor, a canoe, several kayaks, swim raft, two bikes, paddle board, and snow shoes . We are only a few miles from the Mississippi River, area mining pit lakes, the nationally known Cuyuna mountain bike State Recreation area, and snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snow shoeing right out the front door. Come be a part of the Brainerd Lakes area and all it has to offer, while experiencing the wealth of seasons Minnesota is known for.

About Rad Royer

My wife and I fell in love with the 4 ½ acre lake property with its 300 feet of lake shore seven years ago and have been steadily building and transforming it. We lived in this 800 sq. ft. apartment, built in the middle of our property, until we moved into our completed home on the other end of our acreage. We recently decided to share the quiet and beauty of our Rabbit Lake experience with its wildlife, birds, fish, and all the Brainerd Lakes area has to offer with you, through VRBO. We offer you rest and relaxation, Direct TV, CenturyLink internet, a small reading library and DVD collection, a fully equipped unit (check out all that is included on our inventory list), the opportunity to tackle area trails, many 5K to marathon length, hiking, golf, biking, fishing, casual to gourmet dining, and so on. Winter activities are plentiful, as well. Downhill and cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snowshoeing, to name a few. Come join us in a place that we call “our piece of paradise.”

Rad Royer purchased this apartment in 2012

Perfect quite vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation! The cabin is perfectly stocked with everything you could need! We used Rad's boat an got lots of fish, I am pretty sure my son in the 4 days had well over 60 fish, nothing huge but still lots of fun for a 7 year old. The cabin is very clean and was perfect for our needs. I don't think I could say enough great things about this place & our vacation! We will definitely be back!!! Thank you Rad!

Lovely place for a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This property is as described in the overview by Rad, as well as by other reviewers. It's a lovely apartment above a garage, perfect for two. It is immaculate, well equipped and beautifully/tastefully decorated.

You can barely see the lake from the apartment since it is on the rear of the owner's property. A trail through the woods (maybe a 2 minute walk) takes you down to the lake and your private dock. We brought our own boat and enjoyed exploring and fishing East Rabbit and Rabbit Lake. The patio table in front was nice, but kind of out in the open. We grilled every night and stayed out until the mosquitos emerged!

Rad was very helpful, friendly but not intrusive. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this place.

Fun and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The "cabin" sits above a garage a little ways from the lake. There's a walking path to the lake and a private dock. Right away we felt very welcomed and comfortable at this place.

The cabin is very clean and decorated nicely. Rad was really nice and answered any questions right away. We brought our bikes along and spent a day riding the Cuyuna trails - some paved and some for mountain bikes. The trails start in Crosby which was a short distance away.

Crosby also has a nice public swimming beach too.

Overall, a great experience!
