About Philip Klitzke

My wife Jody and I are 50+ self employed Information Technology professionals working in the Twin Cities. We love to travel, swim, canoe, kayak, run, bike and other out door activities. We have five grown children, one grand daughter (4), and another grand baby on the way. We and our 100 # yellow lab (Sam) have enjoyed the cabin these past years. Sam loves to retrieve any thing thrown off the dock. We have purposefully made the cabin 'dog friendly'. We find great satisfaction renting our home to families, friends, groups that need a large, accommodating lake home that is near the twin cities. We really enjoy reading the stories in the guest book. We hope you'll consider our lake home for your vacation plans.

Philip Klitzke purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Philip Klitzke chose Minnesota

We bought this cabin because of the water front, and located on the Cross Lake, Snake River, Pokegama water system. There are lots of activities nearby or just snuggle by the gas fireplace with a good book.

What makes this cabin unique

Lots of space! Open dining, living, kitchen area affords great mingling of a large family gathering. Lots to do for kids or adults. The master bedroom suite with it's own closet and bathroom provides intimacy even when there's a crowd in the house.

An expansive deck extends the openness to outside during the spring-fall seasons. Cool breezes off the lake keep it refreshing even in the hottest summer days. Air conditioning has been installed for those really hot days of summer.

Girls trip 2016

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place, plenty of dishes etc. Deck was a great place for meals, with plenty of seating. We have been doing girls trips for 20 years and this is one of the top ones (and we always pick a different place every year). It's hard to find a place in the summer that you don't have to stay for a week, that's a big plus. The only thing I would say negative is that the walk down to the beach is a little much mostly because we are over 60. But the area by the beach is wonderful, you can get out of the lake and sit by the fire to warm up. Phil called to make sure everything was good, they stopped by to check the beach because there was flooding, but we were good. Property was cleaned and well maintained, I would definitely recommend this place. Close to the city too.

Very comfortable and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed the welcoming space! The description was accurate, the drive to get there was convenient and the place was clean and inviting.

We fished, canoed, kayaked, swam, floated. hiked nearby and in the evening sat around the lovely fire ring as the sun set. The kitchen was so well equipped. We lacked for nothing. We could all sit around the large dinning room table or sometimes out on the spacious deck with a beautiful view of the lake through the mature trees.. We enjoyed the many seating areas that allowed for reading or reflecting privately. The bedrooms and one couch accommodated all twelve of us. It was a great place for my family to gather!

Wonderful Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property description was accurate and the landscaping, beach front and fire pit were better than the pictures. The facilities and amenities were perfect for a family of 7 adults and 3 preschoolers. The property was clean and ready to occupy when we arrived. Phil and Jody were great to work with, responded promptly and provided helpful information. We were blessed with perfect weather for beautiful sunsets and so much outdoors time by the beach, on the dock and around the fire pit. The adults and small grandchildren loved the beach. Fishing was excellent as our group caught walleye, northern, bass, crappie, sunfish, and catfish. This property is located close to Pine City which made it very handy to get groceries and bait. Our family greatly enjoyed our time at this cabin. We have already recommended this property to several family members and friends.
