About Mark and Kristin Backlund
Kristin grew up in Crosby and her parents still own the family home next door. 5 years ago this property became available and we decided to purchase it as we knew we would eventually make it back to Crosby to retire. Now married to Mark and living in Columbia Heights, MN, we make it back as much as we can, however with three active children we find it difficult to make it back as much as we want. We decided to let others experience the quaintness of the community and our home.
Mark and Kristin Backlund purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Mark and Kristin Backlund chose Crosby
Crosby has always been home to Kristin and she still refers to it as her home. She has worked hard to make this property unique to her personality. Due to all of the outdoor activities in close proximity and the downtown area only a few blocks away, you really can have it all. A quiet day sunning in the private back yard, relaxing in the lake or on a beach, fishing the dozens of lakes nearby, sipping coffee at the local diner or coffee shop, and shopping in Crosby and the surrounding little towns within a 20 mile radius really gives you a feeling of getting away. What's best is it's only 2 hours from the Twin Cities.
What makes this Cottage unique
The big bay windows face west and there's nothing like sitting out front facing the lake and watching the sunset with a cool breeze coming off the lake. Great outdoor up north setting with all of the comforts of home!

Perfect Up North Getaway
This home was perfect for my husband and myself! Everything was neat, clean and very homey. We loved the location and will definitely be back!!!
We love the cottage at Crosby!
We had a delightful family vacation here, our fourth in five years, and we plan to be back again. It's the perfect lake house for us!
This place was perfect for our short family get away!
Had a great stay for a family wedding. Great location almost on the lake and across from the park. Just a couple blocks from groceries and restaurants. Although we were mostly occupied with family while there, would love to spend some more time just enjoying the town and this is a great comfortable place to do that.
3 brothers. Fishing
As in the past, our stay was very comfortable; and as always, the large kitchen is a Hugh plus. We will be back. Keith, next door, is always good conversation and we look forward to it. Thank you. Ed
