About The Owner
In the early 80's I visited the Whitefish Chain area and decided that I wanted to spend as much of my free time there as possible. My favorite lakes were Trout and Ox lakes because they were the clearest lakes in the area. I bought my 1st cabin in 1982. It faced Ox Lake and also had a dock on Loon lake. Ox lake has no public access so it is still very pristine and is loaded with fish. I also kept a boat on Loon lake so I could enjoy everything that the Whitefish Chain had to offer.
The Owner purchased this house in 1993
Why The Owner chose Crosslake
Having had a cabin on Ox Lake for many years, I decided that I wanted to build a lake home. I waited 5 years for the perfect piece of land to become available. It is a 450 ft deep lot with Ox Lake on one end and Loon Lake on the other. Route 66 runs through the Loon Lake end of the land. The home was built facing Ox Lake to enjoy the large Norway Pines, Eagles, and serenity offer by that lake. My dock on Loon Lake gives me access to the Whitefish Chain and all of it's fun.
What makes this house unique
You will be amazed by the clarity of Ox Lake. It's like boating on an aquarium. If you choose to, you can canoe to the north end of the lake, portage over the beaver dam, & you are on Little Ox Lake. This is a small 60 ft deep lake with NO CABINS! Great fishing in a wilderness setting. You have free use of our canoe and boat launch. On the Loon lake side you have dockage and use of a boat lift that will fit boats to 17 ft. This property is large, beautiful and very quiet.
