About kent peterson

64 years old. Own and manage residential income properties in St. Paul, MN.

kent peterson purchased this house in 2002

Why kent peterson chose Crosslake

I started coming up to the Crosslake area in the early 1960's when I attended a summer camp on Trout Lake and have been visiting ever since. I purchased the home on Ox Lake in 2002 because of the setting of the property and its access to the two lake areas.

What makes this house unique

The most enjoyable benefit has to be the view of the island. The beautiful tree's and the quite location are hard to beat. Ox Lake is a very clear lake and with no public access and its not to busy and the fishing is great. Having access to the Whitefish chain offers many additional boating possibilities and access to Restaurants from the water.

Beautiful week on Ox Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely old lake home with some modern updates. It has a lovely calm feel to the house. Our group of 9 really enjoyed themselves. We loved eating on the deck and taking in the beautiful view. We were lucky that the weather was very moderate (low 80's) and that it cooled off nicely at night. The many ceiling fans kept the temperature very comfortable. On the not so lucky side, there was a huge hatch of mosquitos --the grocery store was sold out of bug spray! We managed pretty well and all brought home numerous bites. This is just Mother Nature and not anything that could be controlled.

We also enjoyed using the kayaks, Stand up paddle board and canoes. Our kids are all adults but that doesn't mean they don't like extra water toys! The raft off shore was also enjoyed and utilized.

A wonderful family week at the lake.

We had a weeks vacation in July and could not have chosen a more perfect place. This cabin has so much character... we were pleasantly surprised!! The large windows, ceiling fans and comfy furniture made it so liveable. There are so many great spots to read a book, have a cup of coffee, or just look at the towering pines. We prepared a lot of meals and the kitchen was very well stocked. We used the canoe and went out and explored the island, listened to loons calling daily, had campfires and grilled on the two Webers. We have friends on the Whitefish chain who came to visit and they were in AWE of the views! We would come back in a minute!!!

Beautiful cabin, fabulous setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cabin for a cozy northwoods get-away! It was clean, spacious, well-stocked and our kids especially loved the walk-out level rec area. Great cross-country skiing nearby, and walking on the lake ice was fun as well. The cabin is close to the town of Crosslake, so getting groceries, going out to eat, and other activities are only minutes away. Kent was easy to work with, offering suggestions of good hiking and skiing areas nearby. I would highly recommend this property for anytime of the year. We'd love to come back in the summer!
