About Greg

We built this cabin because we fell in love with Lake O'brien. The cool clean water, wildlife, mature trees and evening fires are some of the features that make our home a wonderful place to "escape" from the stress and daily grind. Sleep with the window open and hear the loons calling in the spring, it is absolutely serene.

Greg purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Greg chose Crosslake

With 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with plenty of room for family, a workout room and 225 feet of sandy beach, this is the place to go to enjoy your next family gathering. With special prices in the summer, fall and winter, it is the perfect place to get away with someone special for a long weekend and relax in front of the stone fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay, there was plenty of room for all to do their own thing. It is a great place to have our family together in one place. The kitchen is a cooks dream with plenty of counter space to bake or just gather with snacks etc. Our granddaughters had homework to do, the loft was great for that, they could study yet be a part of our conversations. Football was on the TV for the guys and the gals were playing games and baking cake our son-in-laws birthday.

The weather was great for taking family pictures, with the leaves turning it will be a memory not forgotten. We will definitely come back!

Fantastic Girls' Weekend Destination

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed, and clean. Eight women for four nights and we never left! It is even better than the pictures. While the well pump went out on our first evening, the owner was very responsive and had it fixed the next morning. We all agreed we have found our annual destination and can't wait until next year!

Great beach, clear lake. Perfect for young children

  • 4 of 5

Our grandchildren spent a part of every day in the water. It is shallow and clear for a long ways out. It is the best beach/lake that we have stayed at in the 17 years we have been doing this. The house was nice, but the living space (kitchen, dining and living) was a little cramped for 17 of us but otherwise just fine, We had a great week together and made some wonderful memories. It was a short drive to Cross Lake if we needed anything.

Our yearly family cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most fun weeks we have had. We have been staying a cabins since 2004 and this was the BEST!. Besides a great cabin the beach was great for little kids. they spent so much time in the water it was great. The owners are GREAT to work with and helped us make memories that will last a life time. The 4 year old said "Grandpa, I want to live here forever!" That really sums up how fun it was. 8 adults 7 grandkids. with 4 bedrooms 3 bath rooms and a huge area for the kids to sleep and play it was great. The pictures don't do justice to what a great place it is. Grandpa & Grandma and all the kids and grandkids.say THANKS for the memories.

Wonder Time

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home, and the owners are very responsive. The beach is perfect for little kids, one of the nicest we have stayed at. We followed the suggestions in the book to visit , and we loved those places as well.

The lake traffic was very quite the week we stayed, great fishing off of the dock for the kids. A enjoyable, relaxing vacation.

Mother’s Day weekend

  • 4 of 5

Home was beautiful, there ended up being only 8 of us but it was perfect weekend away! The one fault we had was the fridge had a foul smell to it, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. We just tried to open and close the fridge as fast as we could. I would stay here again!

Lake O'Brien is 188 acres, and one of the clearest lakes in the state, with water clarity down to 22 feet. The fishing is great for northerns, bass, walleyes, crappies and sunfish. Skiing, after dinner sunset cruise on the Pontoon or a walk through the mature pine forest are just a few of the attractions. World class golf at The Legacy, The Preserve, Deacons Lodge or the local Crosswoods are available close by. For the shopper, you can visit downtown Crosslake and Nisswa, Christmas Point or Fleet Farm. There are numerous restaurants nearbye, but don't miss dinner at the Riverside Inn and an Ice Cream Cone at Lake Country Crafts and Cones in Crosslake. The wild rice at the Bungalow is outstanding. For you winter enthusiasts, the snowmobiling and cross country skiing are unbeatable!

Other Activities: Cross Country Skiing
