Photos and Description of the Crosslake vacation cabin rental

Fantastic Privacy, Views And Charm From This Amazing Piece Of History

First, PLEASE save yourself ridiculous new fees by contacting us directly. VRBO just initiated big fees by constantly urging you to book through thier website....under the misleading suggestion that you are better protected!! Well, we owners would like to talk to you / vet you as much as you should want to talk with us and vet us! We have been renting this wonderful family cabin for the last three summers. Every renter has received their full deposit immediately. That is because we have spoken with them prior to their renting. We have screened them and they have screened us! ANYWAY....on to the description.... This landmark vintage cabin sleeps 12 comfortably in 5 bedrooms with 3 & 1/2 bath . This number includes a sleeping loft for 4 children or young adults ( no bathroom in the loft area.) Our family has owned this for nearly 50 years. Of the several hundred homes on the popular Whitefish Chain, there is only one other cabin that is in such original, untouched condition! Even the furniture is from the 1920s and 1930s. This cabin was the only cabin to be featured three times in the prestigious Crosslake Historical Log Home Tour since the tour began 20 years ago. Antiques, log chandeliers, and bear rugs hanging from loft railings add to its warmth and charm. Nooks, crannies and cozy corners abound! Huge screened in porch (with antique birch bark canoe perched over the beams) ,... The porch comfortably seats 12 for dining or schmoozing. A 12 ft x 60 ft long, huge deck runs the entire length of the cabin and also seats another 12 - 14 around a log table and gas fire pit. Huge sweeping lawn down to the lake and panoramic views from the bluff overlooking the islands across the water. State land adjoins this property so it feels as if you are miles from civilization but the town of Crosslake is only 4 miles away and you can walk 3/4 to the charming local pub! Please call me for additional pics and info. Nancy 973 670 1952

Although the cabin measures only about 2,400 feet, it feels much larger with lots of interesting nooks and crannies. Also, that number does not include the large screened in porch that measures another 300 square feet-ish and the long deck that runs the entire lenght of the cabin which is another 500 sq. feet -ish. LOTS OF LIVING SPACE!
