About the property

Bring your entire family to beautiful Lake O'Brien in Crosslake, MN., located 30 minutes from Brainerd. With a sandy clear swimming beach and all the comforts of home, this cabin is the perfect getaway! The cabin has a wonderful 3 season porch, sitting area with a gas fireplace, and dining/kitchen area, all with beautiful views of the lake just 75 feet from the waters edge! It has two bedrooms (one king/one queen) on the main level plus a third bedroom (1 queen and 1 set of bunk beds) in the lower level. There is two full bathrooms 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. We also have a newly built (2012) bunkhouse which will sleep 6-8 people. The bunkhouse also has electric heat for winter time usage. The cabin also includes two high definition TV's (with DVD players) with cable TV and free Wi-Fi. Trust me you will not be roughing it, the cabin includes air conditioning, new kitchen remodel (2014), Kinetico softened water system, and two new remodeled (2014) bathrooms.

The cabin is situated 5 miles east of Crosslake on crystal clear (24 ft. water clarity) Lake O'Brien. During the summer, this is a perfect recreational lake for fishing, waterskiing, wake boarding, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and all water based activities. During the winter months the lake is perfect for ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and is a fantastic area to access the endless miles of groomed snowmobile trails.

Our property is perfect for one or two families which will handle up to 8-10 people comfortably! We do keep our calendar updated and so if you are seeing availability then it is likely available. Upon reservation confirmation you will receive a complete 'what to bring' list so you are prepared for your time up north. Feel free to inquire with any questions you may have and we will be prompt to reply! You will not be disappointed with this property, in fact your only disappointment will be when you leave!

Weekly rentals are from Friday to Friday with check in at 4:00pm and check out at 10:00am.

Wonderful Cabin on Beautiful Lake Obrien (includes new pontoon boat)
average rating of 4.962963 based on 27 reviews

Comfortable and has everything you need-

  • 4 of 5

The lake was not as big as we had hoped but it was a very nice lake. The sandbar was fun for all-the beach by the dock was warm and the kids loved playing in it. The pontoon was super nice and so much fun to toot around the lake and fish. The cabin has just about everything you could need, including the smore's forks for the fire. Cozy.

This property was spacious, nicely landscaped with gradual walk to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The house is designed well with room for different activities and privacy as well. We were pleased with the well-equipped kitchen, bathrooms and living room areas. Our granddaughters had fun in lower level with a supply of games and television. Their family had the lower level bedroom. It was handy to be able to wash laundry in big, well lit room. There are two screened in porches, great for viewing the lake and also storage..extra refrigerator in one. This year, we did not use the bunk house but that is a nice addition as well as a shed for bike storage.

We enjoyed the use of the nice, roomy pontoon and large dock on which we could relax and kids could fish from. The sandy beach was good for sand play and provided an area for launching any kayaks or canoes we brought. The nearby sandbar was used also. We also had campfires a few nights in the fire ring. This property is close to Crosslake for groceries and gift shops. We attended a Tuesday Funfair for kids in Crosslake and one rainy day went to Nisswa for a turtle race and shopping. There's plenty to do in area as well as just enjoying the lake, sounds of loons, etc. It is a great place to spend a vacation!

We've just returned from our family's second stay at this truly exceptional VRBO. Every detail is in place for you to enjoy complete fun and relaxation. What you have read in the glowing reviews is even more delightful when you experience it all firsthand. Our six grown children already have next year's dates on their busy calendars. That says a lot! Thank you Steve and Margaret for allowing us to create cherished memories at your amazing lake home.

Weekend Getaway

Our group of 6 guys had a great weekend at Steve and Margaret's cabin. Very clean, accommodating and plenty of room to sleep. Worry free as they provide most everything you need. Lake was clean and easily accessible. Very relaxing. Would love to return.
