Brainerd Lakes Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and relax at 'Peaceful Pines' in the Village of Crosslake. This property is located on the east shore of Crosslake and has one of the most desirable locations on the entire Whitefish Chain of lakes. We are just a short walk to the Riverside Restaurant, Crosslake Dam and Corp of Engineers campground with two boat launching ramps.

This cabin is where you can relax with a glass of wine, read a book, watch the some of the most beautiful sunsets right here in the backyard or on the big deck! It's a great place for families and friends to get a way for some relaxation and enjoy the lake life.

Our Cabin is located on 3 wooded acres with plenty of parking for boat trailers and several cars.

In the main house there's a large family room upstairs with a 12' long picture window overlooking the lake, a stone fireplace, TV, DVD player and stereo system for your enjoyment.

Last spring we renovated the living room a new couch and 2 very relaxing Lazy-Boy chairs, they are the perfect relaxation spot after boating around the lake all day!

The kitchen was recently renovated, with new S/S & black appliances, granite tiled counter tops and maple cabinets. The dining room which is part of the kitchen has a mid-century country french table that seats up to 8 people and a matching server/hutch. The kitchen comes fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses, small kitchen appliances and tall he utensils you could need. There is also a kitchenette on the lower level with a refrigerator, sink and microwave oven, which is handy for keeping your beverages cold and snacks ready for the boat.

The master bedroom is located downstairs with sliding glass doors that lead to the walk out lower patio area. This room has a queen size bed, dress, chest of drawers and a small walk in closet. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, one on the lake side of the house and the other on the south side. The lake front bedroom has a double/full size bed and the other room has a queen size. There is one bathroom upstairs and 2 downstairs. We have a laundry room with a washer/dryer and utility sink just off of the kitchen area on the way to the garage.

On the back deck that over looks the lake we have a table with 6 chairs which is the perfect place for those family meals while on vacation or cocktails with your friends while watching the amazing sunsets!

We also have a large 8' wood picnic table in the yard and a fire ring for those evening bon fires and roasting marshmellows. This is a perfect location for entertaining your friends.

This is the perfect get away home because all you will need to bring are your clothes & toiletries! It's move in ready!

Keywords: This is a great 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 2 story cabin right on Crosslake with views of the 2 islands. This is at the center of everything!

About Craig Lindholm

My husband is a native of Minnesota and has been coming to Crosslake for part of every summer for over 60 years. Other family members first purchased property on Crosslake in 1948. We are pleased to be able to share this special place with others who will find the area charming and the perfect getaway place to visit and relax. It's a great place to build family memories.

Craig Lindholm purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Craig Lindholm chose Brainerd Lakes

We decided to invest in this cabin in order to be close to family and friends in the area. Our adult children have formed a special connection to this location as well.

What makes this cabin unique

Crosslake and the Whitefish Chain of Lakes are exceptional. Our location is fantastic for swimming with sand bottom and gradual depth increases. Front-row seat for the July 4 fireworks and sunsets are beyond description. The convenience of being so close to local merchants, groceries and restaurants is a real plus. Last but not least, our neighbors are the best!

Great Week On Cross Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Peaceful Pines. Quick review of our stay; it was fantastic. The cabin & grounds were in perfect condition upon arrival. The cabin is fully equipped from kitchen cooking & outdoor grilling gear to relaxing. The beach area is excellent as is the dock system & boat lift. Location makes walking to town for dining or groceries a 10 minute stroll. Due to being located on the east side of the lake, you can watch the sun set every evening directly across the lake. Peaceful Pines is a great place to visit for a summer vacation whether you are young or old. I am looking forward to our visit next summer. RDP

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The view from the cabin was beautiful. My family loves the Crosslake area, from fishing

to golf and many places to dine. We will be back. Any questions we had were answered

by Craig or his father who lives close by.

My wife and I have been boating on the Whitefish Chain and spending time in the Crosslake area for the past 5 years. We decided to book a cabin and spend a week on Cross Lake. We picked this spot due to it's location and sunset views, but that is only the start. The cabin is so clean and well maintained. It has a separate grilling "shack" with a Weber gas grill and a charcoal grill. The appliances are all new, the furniture, beds, TV, and other accommodations are all top shelf.

The patio has a glass top table with seating for 6 that overlooks Cross Lake with a spectacular view at any time of the day, but the sunsets are AMAZING!! The entire beach is soft sugar sand all the way out to the end of the dock. There is a fire pit next to the beach that is also a great vantage point to watch the sunset. The wireless boat lift was a major plus for our stay. It was nice not having to tie up the boat and hope the wind and waves didn't destroy it. (One negative is that there is no canopy for the lift so the boat is susceptible to the elements) However, having the lift available is a very nice feature.

I would highly recommend this property to someone looking for a great family vacation. The property lays out perfect for easy access to the town for groceries, ice cream, restaurants, coffee (all within walking distance). Plenty of parking space and a boat landing within half a mile. The cabin itself has 2 bedrooms up and the master in the walkout basement. Two refrigerators, one up and one down helped to keep food and beverages cold. It has one big wall AC unit to cool the house with fans available to move the air. If you don't have a great vacation staying here, it won't be because of the accommodations.

Peaceful Pines...

  • 5 of 5

...was true to its name! Very nice, clean, and homey place and fully stocked. True that you only need to bring your personal items to enjoy a beautiful week in Crosslake!!

There are so many places to visit around this summer home. Take your bikes if you can!!

But many things within walking distance too!!

Craig and his Dad were very easy to work with and made our stay inviting!! We left a pair of sunglasses there and they even took the time to track them down and send them back to us!! Thank you!!

This was a once in a lifetime family trip!!

Do keep in mind tho that it really only does sleep 6 adults...7 if one would like to sleep on the sofa (not a roll out) in the living room! BTW...from the living room...The view of the sunset is incredible!!!!

We so enjoyed our nightly fires on their beautiful!

Thank you for these great memories we made!!
