    Crosslake, Minnesota - Lake Homes, Cabins & Lake Lots

    As summer slowly winds to a close, kids go back to school and the air takes on the first chills of winter, many of us start to dream of the perfect getaway. A respite, if you will, from the craziness of everyday life. Why not consider the great state of Minnesota? I know. You're thinking, "Why would I plan to go to Minnesota in fall or winter? That's crazy. Isn't it cold?" While Minnesota is certainly colder than many places, it is, in fact, the perfect four-season destination for those who thrive on outdoor recreation of all types. Autumn brings incredible hues and wildlife seeking to store up food for the upcoming winter. Temperatures remain relatively warm during the months of September, into the first part of October, particularly in the height of midday. Winter brings its own wonderful events. From snow-shoeing, to cross-country skiing; down-hill skiing to ice fishing, northern Minnesota is a great place to experience winter in all its glory. Spend the day out in the brisk forest and return to a roaring, romantic fire in your cabin's fireplace. What could be more perfect or romantic than that? In spring, be there to witness the forest thawing and coming to life around you. Animals such as black bears, timber wolves and rabbits emerge from their cozy winter nests in search of food. Listen to the sounds of the ice cracking as it slowly breaks apart in the warming temperatures. Spring is life renewed here in Minnesota.

    For a particular Minnesota destination, why not consider the city of Crosslake, Minnesota, located on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes? A remote, yet easily accessible destination, Crosslake is located on the shores of Cross Lake itself. Crosslake is located in Crow Wing County, just thirty minutes north of the greater Brainerd and Baxter areas. Its population is a little over 2,000 permanent residents, making it both a cozy and welcoming destination. With 121 miles of shoreline, Cross Lake is a great spot to buy or build your very own North Woods retreat! Whether you intend to relocate, or just use the property periodically, owning a vacation cabin or home near Crosslake, Minnesota is sure to be an investment that will pay off in the long run. With interest rates at historic lows, now may just be the best time to act. Contact a trusted real estate professional, such as the agents at LakePlace.com for assistance with your purchasing or selling needs.

    Crosslake and the surrounding regions claim literally dozens of clear, cool Minnesotan lakes. There are more than 13,500 acres of water in the fourteen interconnected lakes of the Whitefish Chain of Lakes alone. Fishing here is a classic pastime and even through the coldest months of winter, anglers come to this region to tackle a little ice fishing (no pun intended). Area resorts and cabins available for rental are the perfect way to come and experience all the Crosslake, MN region has to offer before committing to a real estate investment.

    Whether you are just visiting, or staying for an extended period of time, Crosslake offers numerous festivals and events where folks can come and absorb a little North Woods culture. St. Patrick's Day is a huge celebration, complete with a parade and other community events. WinterFest, celebrating the magnificence of Minnesotan winter is also a classic, featuring horse drawn carriage rides, a snow mountain for sledding, pond skating and, of course, hot chocolate and soup. In late summer/early autumn, be sure to check out Crosslake Days, an event complete with a car show, beer garden, music, chili cook-off, entertainment, games for the kids and artisanal crafts for sale.

    Even if you don't happen to be visiting during a time of a festival, life is never dull here in Crosslake. Fishing is a way of life. Imagine catching a walleye, frying the fresh fish over an open campfire and enjoying, all within the span of an hour. Yum. If fishing isn't your thing, try golfing at one of the fine area golf courses. Dine at a local establishment and get to know a few Crosslake residents. Chances are you will make a friend with a truly interesting character or two. Local recreational areas, such as the Cross Lake Recreation Area, feature camping and swimming, perfect for a weekend getaway. The Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway allows folks to explore this region from the comfort of their own vehicle and runs straight through Crosslake around the Whitefish Chain of Lakes. For the history buff in your traveling party, be sure to schedule a step back in time by visiting the Crosslake Historic Log Village, complete with 19th century buildings.

    Crosslake and the greater Brainerd area are conveniently located a mere two to two and a half hours from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul. With outstanding outdoor recreation, welcoming locals and scenery like you've never seen before, you may have just discovered your next choice for four-season vacationing fun!

    Crosslake Minnesota Real Estate

    Crosslake, a city in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, is a destination as charming as it is scenic. Crosslake is located on the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway and is home to the Whitefish Chain of Lakes, a series of Minnesota Lakes peppered with lovely, secluded islands. With a population of approximately 1900, Crosslake is the picture of small town charm set against a backdrop of amazing scenery and beauty. So come on over, kick back along the 121 miles of gorgeous lakefront shoreline and experience true relaxation in north central Minnesota!

    Crosslake was originally established as a small logging community of north central Minnesota. After the Cross Lake Dam was constructed in 1885, logging became a booming industry in the region and many lumberjacks settled in the Crosslake area. During the days of Prohibition in the 1920's, Crosslake and the surrounding areas became a haven for notorious gangsters such as Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, Legs Diamond and John Dillinger. In fact, legend has it that area roads such as Bourbon Lane and Old Whiskey Road, were named for the hidden stills and other bootlegging operations that once peppered the surrounding countryside. As the logging and railway industries declined in the 1920's and 1930's, Crosslake and the surrounding north central Minnesota area emerged as one of the premiere vacation destinations for tourists from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and other parts of the midwest. Today, with its luxurious resorts, countless amenities and the pristine wilderness surrounding the city, Crosslake is a fabulous destination to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

    Downtown Crosslake is home to unique shops and cozy restaurants, providing an excellent afternoon activity for the whole family. Antique lovers will delight in the large variety of relics for sale in the local shops. Golfers can catch a glimpse of the local wildlife as they play one of the seventeen area courses. Boats are welcome on the Whitefish Chain lakes and spending a day relaxing on the soft waves will create delightful memories for you and your family. Fishing is plentiful and many area resorts features package deals that will assist everyone from the novice to the expert fishermen in their quest to catch the perfect specimen. In winter, enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or ice fishing in the Whitefish Chain area. Regardless of the season, you are such to find an abundance of exciting activities and events.

    If you happen to be a history buff, a visit to the Historic Log Village in Crosslake is a delightful way to spend an afternoon. Here, adults and children alike will enjoy hearing about the days when pioneer settlers made their way into the central Minnesota region to build their homes and communities. The Historic Log Village features a turn of the century schoolhouse, a bunkhouse and a logger's shack, all meticulously restored and maintained.

    Every year in March, Crosslake hosts the St. Patrick's Day Parade & Celebration, a Irish American tradition at its best! Crosslake Days is another annual community celebration, featuring five days and nights of Minnesota revelry. Held annually in late summer, Crosslake Days celebrates the history, culture and laidback lake lifestyle of the Crosslake community. Locals and visitors alike will enjoy events such as the classic car show, the boat parade, cook-offs, costume contests and athletic tournaments.

    For a unique and truly memorable winter experience, plan to visit Crosslake during the annual weekend of Winter Fest, beginning in late January. On Friday evening, Winter Fest is opened with a spectacular fireworks display. Saturday and Sunday activities include a pancake breakfast, snowmobile rides for the kids, ice bowling, dog sled races and even daring car races on frozen lakes, ice condition permitting, of course. With so much snowy fun, Winter Fest is sure to create wonderful winter memories in the Crosslake region for you and your family this year.
