About Mark and Kristin Backlund
Kristin grew up in Crosby and her parents still own the family home next door. 3 years ago this property became available and we decided to purchase it as we knew we would eventually make it back to Crosby to retire. Now married to Mark and living in Columbia Heights, MN, we make it back as much as we can, however with three active children we find it difficult to make it back as much as we want. We decided to let others experience the quaintness of the community and our home.
Mark and Kristin Backlund purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Mark and Kristin Backlund chose Crosby
Crosby has always been home to Kristin and she still refers to it as her home. She has worked hard to make this property unique to her personality. Due to all of the outdoor activities in close proximity and the downtown area only a few blocks away, you really can have it all. A quiet day sunning in the private back yard, relaxing in the lake or on a beach, fishing the dozens of lakes nearby, sipping coffee at the local diner or coffee shop, great shopping in Crosby and the surrounding little towns within a 20 mile radius really gives you a feeling of getting away. What's best is it's only 2 hours from the Twin Cities.
What makes this Cottage unique
The big bay windows face west and there's nothing like sitting out front facing the lake and watching the sunset with a cool breeze coming off the lake. Great outdoor up north setting with all of the comforts of home!

Perfect location and comfy home
We stayed here for a couple nights so we could bike the Cuyuna MTB trails. It was a great location with easy access to the trails and downtown area. We could walk to dinner, bike to the trails and it was a very comfortable home.
I felt at home the minute I walked it. The cottage is in a perfect location.
The lake is just a house away and has a fishing pier, easy walking to city park and downtown. Inside the cottage is tastefully decorated, plenty of living and sleeping space, kitchen well equipped, and backyard is an enclosed gathering space. I would certainly stay here again!
The house had a lot of amenities and was very clean. The location was great as we could walk to restaurants and was only a short ride from the bike trails!
We really enjoyed our weekend stay at the cottage again. Can't wait for the week in June. Everything you need is available at the house. We were able to walk to down for food, drinks and shopping.
Very beautiful cabin!
The cabin is very well kept! The cabin felt like home, we had everything we needed right there at our finger tips. The kids loved the fire pit and making smores!!! Not to mention yhe neighbors are all so sweet.
Cute family home close to everything
My wife and I have visited Crosby quite a few times, mainly for mountain biking. I think we've found our new home base. On this trip, we came up with another couple. The kitchen is spacious, the backyard was perfect for our dogs, and the proximity to everything in town is hard to beat.
The one suggestion I would make is that the full sized bed and some of the twin beds be replaced with more queen beds.
Huge multi level playground, bike and skateboard park, basketball court, softball fields, camp area, boat launch, fishing pier, and long beach. Well known for fishing as well as mountain biking in the mining pits.
