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. ...moreless

On the Property

Car: Recommended

The models on our page are our own children and/or family. Located on the 270 acre private Ox Lake with spectacular bass and panfish fishing. This is adjacent to the Whitefish Chain of Lakes, specifically Crosslake. Ox and the Whitefish Chain of Lakes are located in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area in Northern Minnesota. Fourteen lakes make up the Whitefish Chain: Upper Whitefish, Lower Whitefish, Arrowhead, Bertha, Big Trout, Clamshell, Cross, Daggett, Hen, Island, Little Pine, Lower Hay, Pig and Rush. On the Whitefish Chain you will find incredible Fishing, Scenery, Resorts, Lake Homes and Lake Property. Roughly 14,000 acres of water. Check in-out for summer weeks is Friday-Friday.

Year Purchased: 2010

About: 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.

Why Crosslake, MN, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
