Buckskin Guest House is nestled on 58 acres of beautiful woods yet is just a few miles from all that Crosslake and the Whitefish Chain have to offer. Its large private deck overlooks two environmental lakes and the view of the starry sky at night is incredible.
Hiking trails are right outside the door and the bike/walking trail through Crosslake is about a mile away. Close to the swimming beaches, golf courses, boat launches, boat and toy rentals, and more, the Guest House provides a central location for access to fun! And for a night out, enjoy convenient access to the many restaurants and take advantage of the shuttle service that will pick you up and bring you back to the Guest House. Or stay in and have a fire in the private fire pit or grill your own food on the gas grill on the deck.
If you’re snowmobiling, take the access path out of the back of the Guest House that leads right to the Fifty Lakes Trail. A right turn and you are heading north on the Fifty Lakes trail taking you to the trails north of Crosslake. A left turn takes you on the snowmobile trail to the Crosslake trail heads (only about 3/4 mile to trail heads, restaurants, gas, convenience and liquor stores) giving you many different ride options—a different ride every day. No long access spurs or bumpy, windblown lakes to get to the trails. We're on the groomed trail system!
Attention Hikers and XC Skiers!!--We are one of the closest lodging options for the Nordic Ridge Ski and Hiking Trail system for cross country skiing and hiking. The trails can be accessed from behind the Guest House using the access path. Or, if you prefer, take a short drive (about 2 miles) to the Crosslake Community Center (located across the lake) and access the trail system from there.
For bike enthusiasts, the Cuyuna Mountain Bike Trail System is only about 20 miles away! Now there's an adventure for sure.
