About John and Julie Gleason

This has been our family retreat since 2004 and this is the first time we are offering this fantastic location to others. We have made so many special memories over the past 10 years with family and friends. Now it's time to make lasting memories for your family and friends.

We have been vacationing in the northland lakes area all of our lives and and raised our children doing the same. Once you've visited this area you too will be hooked.

John and Julie Gleason purchased this cabin in 2004

Why John and Julie Gleason chose Crosslake

We grew up going to the family cabin. Once we had our own family we decided we needed a place we could call our own and raise our boys. We knew the Whitefish Chain was the place to be. The water is clear, there are plenty of fish and it's a great place for water sports or just hanging out on the lake. There are restaurants on the lakes (I can't imagine being on a lake without restaurants). There are islands you can pull your boat up to and hangout. The lakes go on and on. You can pack a cooler and never get bored! If you haven't been to MN before know that when you walk down the street, when you pass another boat everyone waves. So wave back, it's the Minnesota charm. This is our favorite place to be.

What makes this cabin unique

Location, location. When looking for a cabin, we walked into this home and our son said, 'This is the one, you've got to get this one.' So glad we listened. Close to everything, you can walk or boat to so many things.

Bring your own boat or rent a pontoon only 1/4 mile away.

Also available snowmobile rental and jet ski rental

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time on Cross Lake this summer. The cabin is on a great spot on Cross Lake, right next to shopping and restaurants. The cabin is well maintained, and everything worked great. The lake is very nice with a nice dock and access to boat rentals less than a mile away.

We are seriously considering coming back!

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family just got back from a wonderful stay at this lake home. The accommodations were perfect for four adults plus they allowed my small dog which was a huge bonus. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything u would need. We spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the beautiful view. In the evenings it was nice to sit around a campfire or soak in the hot tub. Moonlite bay was very close so on the weekend it did get rather loud with the band playing on Fridays and Saturdays. It was quiet in the house so it wasn't a big deal. The owners were very friendly and quick to answer any of our questions. Overall it was a very good experience and I would definitely recommend this place.

Great Cabin, Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I rented this cabin for the 4th. Slept 10 of us comfortably. Great fire pit. Great dock space. Swimming dock in the water. Easy walk to Moonlight Bay. Bikes were useful for running to store. Lots of activities in close proximity. Overall great place and would recommend to anyone who intends to have some nightlife within walking distance.
