Located on the Manhattan Point Peninsula which separates Big Trout Lake (of turqouise water fame) from Whitefish. We are 1/2 mile down the Peninsula from Manhattan Beach Lodge and just a mile or two from all the hotspots and activities in Crosslake, such as Moonlight Bay, The Warf, the famous Crosslake Ice Cream Parlor, Crosswoods Golf Course and its putt putt facilities. :-)

A fabulous family retreat with 'Maui' type views and plenty for the kids to do on and off the water.

Exciting 'in town' activities including antiquing, fabulous restaurants, golf, pubs, mini golf, and shopping opportunities. Lots of fabulous communities nearby as well, making for great excursions, such as Nisswa, Breezy Point, Pequot Lakes, Emily, Crosby and Pine River. Major tourist attractions in Brainerd, including the Brainerd International Raceway just 25 miles away. Half a dozen or so of world class golf courses await those with a need for recreational diversity!

About John

We have had a lifetime of wonderful experiences at Deeside and enjoy sharing it with guests.

The property is large enough to hold some heavily wooded areas and many deertrails. Deer generally migrate each evening at dusk through the property and the feeding areas lakeside.

Towering pines throughout the property are splendid, but none more memorable that the pines that surround the 'north fire pit' creating a sureal darkness which opens to a splendid view of the stars which simply can't be captured in the 'cities' - a very cozy, peaceful 'planetarium' effect.

The 'south firepit' provides some 'away' space for the teens and possibly a good spot for some wummer fireworks.

John purchased this cabin in 1998

Why John chose Crosslake

Located on Manattan Point on Whitefish Lake and adjacent to Big Trout Lake.

Deeside is the best. Gorgeous views and beach on Lower Whitefish Chain. Lots of deer, wildlife, tons of things to do for the kids.

What makes this cabin unique

Cozy cabin and bunkhouse, loads of activities for all ages and one of the very finest settings on the entire Whitefish Chain.

Very Nice Family Spot

  • 5 out of 5
Fun! We had a great time at Deeside. The Fisherman Fished. Swimmers Swam. Water Skiers Skied. We played horseshoes. We cruised all around the lake. Especially enjoyed docking at restaurants on the lake. The “Warf” was our favorite. Those in our family who avoid the sun had fun on the deck surrounded by beautiful TALL Pines reading a book, playing cards or just chatting with a beverage watching the sun set. The galley kitchen is new. The grocery store in town is a bit pricey but we still enjoyed some great steaks and corn on the cob on the grill. The kids loved having a camp fire and making real old fashioned s’more’s. We plan on staying again and will probably bring some food with us next time. One other thing there are some great places all over the area if you like shopping, especially antiquing.

Best Spot Ever

  • 5 out of 5
Tried to post before but didn't get through.

Great spot. We had a big group. Lots of room and pretty private as generally nobody in adjoining properties. Fishing was great. Caught some nice walleyes and lots of bass and northerns. Huge chain of lakes. Swimming was excellent. We spent tons of time on the beach and on the docks.

Maid was great. Super views and dinners on the deck. Lots to do in town.

Thanks for a great time.

Outstanding!

  • 5 out of 5
I live in Maui and own a Marina so my expectations run pretty high.

This property was really great. We have friends on the chain that we came to visit and found ourselves spending nearly all of our time at Deeside.

The boat was great. Lots of power. Kids had a riot tubing and did some skiing. My wife loved the shopping and antiquing around town. The beach and dock area were great. We hung out there alot. Nice sandy beach, swimming and party deck.

Great dinners outdoors under some amazing pines. The views reminded me of home.

Fun at night building fires or playing pool.

Friendly. Regina was great!

Thanks for having us!

Great escape for family and friends

  • 5 out of 5
Wonderful setting for a family with teenage kids and room for them to bring their friends. Tons of activities for an active group. Perfect beach for volleyball, sunning and night time camp fire. The bunk house also allowed the adults to take a break from teenager noise.

Beautiful setting overlooking Whitefish Lake. Charming cabin with a great north woods feel.

Disappointing

  • 2 out of 5
Although the overall location was fantastic (Manhattan Beach, close to Crosslake), the property itself needs quite a bit of work. We have small children and the long hike to the beach and back was difficult. I think the pictures and description of the beach are misleading. The cabin sits on top of a steep hill and not on the beach. At the bottom of the hill, we had to walk through weeds to get to the beach. The maid brought a sickle for us to cut down the over growth so we could walk through. I weeded the shoreline myself and used the beach rake to attempt to clean up the area.

The boat was not covered and had several inches of water in it. It was also not working properly. The owner did send a repair guy out to fix the boat, but we never did use it and regretted the decision to not bring a boat of our own.

The property was NOT clean and well-maintained. We walked into dirty floors and dirty bathrooms. The bedding was clean. The maid was quick to respond to our needs and helped us clean the cabin after we arrived. The vacuum was not working, which was a huge part of the problem. We were also disgusted by the moldy curtains, but once again, the maid was very kind and bought new shower curtains that same day. The downstairs toilet stopped working half way through our stay.

We did enjoy the backyard - great fire pit area and plenty of seating for everyone to dine or enjoy the fire. We loved driving around the neighborhood in the ATV. The area was also great for bike riding we did quite a bit. Lots of wildlife. The deer didn't seem too scared by us - fun to watch.

I think this place has potential but it needs quite a bit of work for it to be rental worthy.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in Deeside and strive to make it better each year and for each visitor. We appreciate any and all input and constructive criticism is always good as it raises the bar!
Our maid, Regina is great. First issue raised after some 200 visitors. When Regina cleans it sparkles. I have great confidence in her.
2013 was tough with late spring. I budgeted 7 days “up north” but spent 30. Added four new aluminum/cedar docks and rebuilt the remaining 11. Added new motors to both lifts. The main deck and yard furniture were all freshly stained. We added four new Adirondacks and recycled out some of the older steel variety. With nearly 2000 sq ft of deck and dock space it’s hard to have too many chairs! ?
The lot is one of the best on Whitefish Photo on VRBO Bi-level gently sloping 40 ft. total elevation. Portion left natural for deer habitat. 40 fresh bags mulch this spring. I inspected the 15 ft pathway this weekend. Looked fabulous. Incoming guests, returning from last season were thrilled.
Kathryn requested 4th of July week at a 40% discount. I was not able to accommodate. We did allow early arrival. Regina responded immediately with new items, though the old were freshly laundered and but a few months old.
The vacuum is Hoover Pet HEPA filter which I insist on as we do allow pets. We test the vacuum cleaner before each incoming guest to make sure a quarter cleanly navigates the full length of the hose to the flooring. Regina assures me it was well functioning both when Kathryn arrived and departed.
I had Mercury Optimax expert in town diagnose the boat. He double checked and cleaned the battery terminals and test drove it and indicated it ran perfectly. My 1000 mile journey this weekend to inspect the boat and property confirmed same.
Both water closets are barely a year old. I installed a new oversize lift station pump this spring. The entire system is very modern. Regina was not advised of any issue with the plumbing until the morning of Kathryn’s departure. The plumber that we called out was able to identify the issue fairly quickly. He indicated it was pretty clear that it was malicious. Regina indicated the cabin has never been left so messy. But she is a trooper. She arrived at 10:00 AM, tracked down a plumber/had the place ready for incoming guests by 4:15 PM.
Regina and I take comments/criticisms/suggestions seriously. We appreciate the above comments and know they will help us focus on continued improvement!
