BAY LAKE - COZY, SPACIOUS LAKE VIEW FAMILY HOME (3 BR/3BA)

Crosby House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 in beds-10 person max)

Enjoy your family getaway on beautiful Bay Lake. Just a few hours north from the Twin Cities brings you to the heart of the lakes area. Bay Lake is a 2,435 acre lake filled with bays, points and islands and is one of the top bass fishing lakes in Minnesota. With its many bays, Bay Lake is safe on the windiest of days. Remember to pack your favorite lures and poles.

The three bedroom, air-conditioned split level lake home (2,324 Sq Ft) has all the comforts of home. Sleeps six with room enough for ten if bringing portable cribs and airbeds. Three private bedrooms: One master suite with a queen bed, one bedroom with twin beds and a downstairs bedroom with a double bed. Three bathrooms include two with bathtubs/showers and the downstairs bath has a shower. Amenities include a washer and dryer, bedding, and towels, a kitchen fully stocked with cookware and dishes, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, hand mixer and toaster. Spacious living room and dining area and separate family room on the lower level. Sorry – No Pets or smoking allowed!

The lakeshore is just a few steps away (about 350 ft) with a short walk across the road to a public easement. Enjoy the large backyard for family games and a patio for relaxing and grilling. A charcoal grill is provided, but don’t forget to bring the charcoal. There is also a fire pit on the hillside for bon fires.

Driveway has plenty of space for boat/trailer parking. The public access for boat launching is just 3 miles away. Need to rent a boat? Bay Lake Marine offers affordable rentals and is located across the bay next to the public access launch. Bay Lake Camp/Church Island pontoon shuttle is just a mile or so down the road. Take the pontoon shuttle to the island and enjoy outdoor church services, open to the public, held each Sunday during the summer.

The Brainerd Lakes area offers something for everyone: Heartland Hockey camp is just 6 miles away. Mille Lacs Lake, Minnesota’s premier Walleye factory, is a short 10 minute drive and 20 minutes from Mille Lacs Grand Casino. A variety of golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants, movies, antique shops, amusement parks, miniature golf courses, museums, and shopping are all a short drive away. Enjoy the world class 25-mile mountain bike trails, covering 800 acres in the Cuyuna’s County State Recreation Area near Crosby. Other activities in the Cuyuna’s County State Recreation Area include scuba diving and fishing for Rainbow and Brook Trout. Into auto racing? Brainerd International Raceway is just 30 minutes away. Take a short 1 1/2 hour drive to Duluth on Lake Superior to see the large orr boats come in on the ship canal and tour the famous lighthouses of Two Harbors and Split Rock.

Suggestions to bring: CDs, DVDs, food and drinks, storage containers for left overs, dish & hand soap, laundry soap, shampoo/personal toiletries, beach towels, sun screen, life jackets, water toys, fishing equipment, insect spray, picnic items (napkins, paperplates, plastic silverware), charcoal and BBQ utensils.

Your family will love this home. It is a wonderful place, well maintained, pretty setting and definitely not your typical dingy cabin, you will not be disappointed. I take great pride in providing a setting for fun summer memories! Please feel free to email with questions or additional pictures.

My family has enjoyed vacationing on Bay Lake for over 70 years - 6 generations. We have made many memories and many friends here in the area. In 2011 I finally found a place of my own to enjoy Bay Lake year round and for many years to come!

Wonderful Stay

  • Submitted: Feb 20, 2014

This was our second time staying at this vacation property. Again this visit was outstanding. The fish were biting and we ended the week with a tasty meal of fish. The weather was also great, so we were able to enjoy the large backyard. We also attend church services at Church Island - that is always a treat to spend the service with Mother Nature. We are looking forward to another return visit in the very near future.

We rented this house in July 2013 for a week and found it to be very clean, comfortable and spacious. With 2 teenagers we had plenty of room to spread out. We have friends that have a cabin on Bay Lake and spent most of our time at their beach. Bay Lake is outstanding, great fishing, boating and swimming. Theresa, the owner was great to deal with. We are planning on coming again!

Owner's Response: So glad that you and your family had an enjoyable time at the lake. You rented during the hottest week of the summer, so being at the lake was the best place to be. It was also nice that the location of my property was convenient for visiting your friends. I look forward to your return.

July getaway

Four professional women and I shared this great lake home over the 4th of July weekend to play in an annual golf tournament at Rutgers. The home was spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, beds are very good, and the yard is great for outdoor games.
One possible negative was the taste of the water. We were glad we had brought bottled water to drink. (We knew in advance that at times the water has an odor - the owner had told us so.)
The weather was warm and humid during our stay so we were glad to have air conditioning.

We dined at the Deerstand and Lonesome Pine - two of our favorite spots in the area and shopped at the Christmas store in Baxter.

We are hoping to be able to stay here again next summer and would surely recommend this VRBO to others without hesitation.

Owner's Response: You hit the hot spots on your visit to the Brainerd Lakes area - Two great restaurants and shopping at Christmas Point. Yes, as I mentioned, the water can smell of iron at times since Deerwood is in the Cuyuna Iron Range. There is filtered drinking water in the kitchen. Your tournament sounds like fun! We will be glad to have you and your friends back next year.

Excellent Accommodations!

Our family enjoyed our stay at this Bay Lake home for 3 nights; June 13 - 16. My wife and I, along with our four children, plus Grandma & Grandpa found this home to be the perfect setup the 8 of us. The house was very spacious; we really liked the open floor plan. There is definite pride of ownership here as every room was extremely neat, clean and comfortable. The house had all the comforts of home. Couldn't have asked for better weather - we opened the windows each day which brought a nice comfortable breeze inside. Each evening we had a great time playing games around the dining room table (a HUGE selection of board games was provided!) We brought our bicycles and enjoyed several leisurely bike rides along the quiet and scenic lake-shore road. The owner was also very responsive, friendly and helpful during all of our interactions. Mille Lacs is nearby and Brainerd is only 20-30 minutes away, so if you're looking for a nice place to stay in the Brainerd Lakes Area and don't want to pay the pricey rates to be directly on the water then I highly recommend this home. We will be back!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that your family had an enjoyable stay in the Bay Lake area. I do take great pride in the home and appreciate you recognizing that.

The blacktopped road along the lake is excellent for family bike rides and walks - glad you enjoyed your rides. My family also really enjoys playing board games while at the lake. It's sad that we don't take the time to play more often at our own homes. I guess there is something about playing board games at the lake and having good, quality family time.

Let me know when you want to make a return trip!

A group of friends and I spent a weekend at this beautiful home! There was plenty of space for the 9 of us. The house has a large backyard, great for yard games and a bonfire. The owner was very helpful and provided restaurant recommendations. We had a great Saturday night dinner at Zigs which is just a short drive away!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your friends had a great weekend. Also glad that you took my recommendation for Zigs. My family really enjoys this restaurant. The outdoor seating, overlooking the golf course and small lake is so relaxing!
