Cozy cabin nestled in the woods, right next to the lake, secluded from others
About Susan Williams
West Crooked Lake and the surrounding area is nature at its best. As you look around you will see tall pines, wild flowers, abundant wildlife and a home to a family of loons. West Crooked Lake Resort was originally known as Timberlost Resort & Campground and was owned by the Jerrold and Doris Skadberg family for over 25 years. The Skadberg family had been coming from North Dakota to the Park Rapids area for their family vacations for decades and they came to love the trees, lakes and wildlife. In 1979, they decided to purchase Timberlost and to make Minnesota their permanent home. Several of their nine children, including myself, Susan, were involved over the years in helping Jerrold and Doris operate the resort. In 2003, I purchased a portion of Timberlost Resort and established West Crooked Lake Resort and constructed a new cabin and remodeled existing cabins with a northern decor to welcome all. I became familiar with the resort business through the years of helping my family with Timberlost Resort and decided to continue the resort tradition that my parents had started. Prior to purchasing the resort, I was an owner of a software development company and still work for that company. I enjoy getting away from my Dillon, CO residence to relax at our Up North resort with my two children, Nathan and Tomiko.
Susan Williams purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why Susan Williams chose Nevis
Family is very important to me and it is wonderful that we can keep this beautiful lake resort in our family. My family has been visiting the Park Rapids area for our summer vacations for over 50 years. We really love it here.

Wonderful cabin really close to the lake shore.
The team was super responsive to our questions, the check-in process was super easy, and the stay was absolutely delightful. We will be going back.
It was a very cute clean comfortable little cabin!
It was perfectly laid out and set up with everything we needed and more! The one room size may be small but it didn’t feel tight, it still felt spacious and was just right for our likings! :) The lake view was fabulous with the shoreline nice and close, which we love! It was a peaceful, relaxing & beautiful lake. The loons sang every day and evening with their little fluffy baby in tow that so cool to see!!
The temps were cooler than a normal for a June week but our stay was just what we needed from the busy rush of life. Thank you Susan for renting your quaint little cabin out for us to stay at and being so accommodating with the dates we needed, and thank you to the Management staff that were friendly and helpful. We do plan to be back another time. :)
good quiet location, nice lake views, but small
We enjoyed our stay in this studio cabin north of Nevis. Bed is good, cute little kitchen, but very little counter-top space. Full size fridge. Bath is tiny and cramped for my 6’3” height. Only 1 side table w light for reading in bed. Floor gets cold when outside temp drops and wind blows. Friendly property manager who is available to answer questions.
Thanks, Rick, for writing a review. I am sorry if the space was too small for you. We do have the size of the living area (324 sq ft) included in the listing and there is a photo looking into the bath, which does show it is small. I never want to mislead anyone. I hope that you might consider another cabin at our resort. Our 2 and 3 bedrooms cabins, which we will rent as one bedrooms in the fall and spring, are much more spacious.
Sweet cabin tucked away with great view of the lake!
Overall our stay was amazing! We chose this for our anniversary getaway and were not disappointed! The cabin is perfect for a couple with lots of amenities so you really only need groceries and you are set! Area has lots of little tourist shops to visit within 30 minutes. Fishing is good! We didn’t utilize the paddle boat, canoe or kayak but they are easily accessible to all cabins. Saw lots of family’s playing yard games and firewood is available for a fire if you like! We miss it already but will definitely be back!!
Great location & Everything we needed
We were pleasantly surprised by the amazing view of the lake we had from the cabin. The cabin was cute & fully stocked with everything we needed. The resort had all the beach & water toys, life jackets, dvds and lawn games we could have needed. Only complaint is the bed was a little uncomfortable.
So cute and really charming, perfect for two.
Really a nice place, wish in cabin 5 we could of seen the lake more. I liked the movie selections and board games for our rainy weekend. The resort was well kept, suoer clean cabin.
