About CM

We live and work in CA for now but this is our home and your stay here will reflect that care and attention to detail.

CM purchased this house in 2010

Why CM chose Crosslake

If you are looking for a resort style yet family friendly Up North experience for a big or small group, this is the place. Calculate what it would cost you for more than one family to stay at an area resort and see how it compares to having the privacy and intimacy of your own house for the duration of your stay.

What makes this house unique

6 1/2 Acres. 'Dogtrot' or breezeway with fireplace. 178' of Private Lake Shore and beachfront. This is a private lake. Serene. Typically not very busy. You will be right across the road from the Whitefish Chain of Lakes so if you want more action you can have it within minutes. We have our own landing capable of handling jet ski or small aluminum fishing boats. For larger vessels you can put in numerous places on the Whitefish Chain.

This is a private lake. There is no access to the homeowner's association landing. We have a landing on our own property. It will only accommodate small trailers for small fishing boats or jet skis. You will need an experienced trailer backer and capable people to get these smaller vessels off and on the trailer. Many of our guests will put a larger vessel (or rent one) on one of the 14 lakes on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes.

Best Family Christmas Ever!!

We stayed at this immaculate house for 10 days over Christmas break and had such an amazing time. We had 15 people ranging for the ages of 3-73 and everyone had a blast. The house never once seemed too large or too small. The different areas of the house made gathering together as one large group or being all spread around the house easy to accomplish. The accommodations of the house made it extremely easy to be there for that long, the house is truly setup for extended stays. Simply put, I would find it hard to find more of an amazing place.

Even though we experienced some of the coldest weather a person could imagine we found the property, the town of Crosslake and surrounding communities flexible enough find ways of keeping us entertained and never once having the feeling of being stuck inside. The weather was crazy, 3 times the air temp at night was -30, oh my! On the days that it was bearable to go outside we found the downhill sledding that is right outside the house to be a lot of fun and fishing to be excellent. My brother, whom is an avid fisherman, stated “people would drive 8 hours for fish like this”.

The owner’s were extremely easy to work with, a bit too easy. The response time on any of our questions was quick.

Crosslake itself is an amazing little town with everything you will need. The restaurants, bars, shopping, bait shops, microbrewery, grocery stores are all very nice and a quick drive to get to. The local people seem to be very genuine and nice.

We truly are hoping to make another trip out to this place soon. Would give this place, town, and experience 11 stars out of 10 if we could! Thank you to the Moser family, you guys rock!

Best location for our wedding.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I hosted 40 people for our wedding over Labor Day weekend at this cabin. 18 of us stayed in the cabin--5 different families. We had the greatest time celebrating here. The spaces were immaculately clean and comfortable. The kids loved playing hide and seek around the house and you'll probably find some of our nerf darts around the house :) The outside space provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and reception. We couldn't be happier with our decision to get married here. Thanks Mosers!

Great family memories!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin with more than enough space for a large group. The cabin was clean and well prepared for us, and has all of the things you need to enjoy your stay! The lake itself beautiful and quiet.... TONS OF FISH! Easy catches of bass especially, but some northern and perch as well! Great clear water and beach area. The beach area had a lot of grass growing up in the sand but we easily raked it away. We rented a pontoon for the day (very reasonable!) on the chain through Al's Marine. Great service!

This property is immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the cabin itself beautifully built and furnished, but the landscaping is really nice too. We were there three nights and even though it rained most of the time we never got bored because there is plenty to do inside as well as the surrounding area. We bought a bunch of wood for a bonfire and even though it rained it still didn't stop us since there's a really nice outdoor fireplace. The owner was friendly and down to earth from the very beginning and made the experience easy and pain free. I would highly recommend this property and you honestly can't beat the price for what you get.
