Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Crosslake - 1930's ALL original LOG Cabin

Fantastic Privacy, Views And Charm From This Amazing Piece Of History

Sleeps approx 12 in 4 bedrooms with 3 & 1/2 bath and includes an additional sleeping loft for 3 well behaved kids or young adults! My family has owned this for nearly 50 years. Of the several hundred homes on the popular Whitefish Chain, there is only one other cabin that is in such original, untouched condition! Even the furniture is from the 1920s and 1930s. This cabin was the only cabin to be featured three times in the prestigious Crosslake Historical Log Home Tour since the tour began 20 years ago. Antiques, log chandeliers and bear rugs hanging from loft railings add to its amazing wonder. Nooks, crannies and cozy corners abound! Huge screened in porch (with antique birch bark canoe perched over the beams) ,... The porch comfortably seats 12 for dining, snoozing or schmoozing! And, a 12 ft x 60 ft long, huge deck runs the entire length of the cabin and also seats another 12 - 14 around a log table and gas fire pit. Huge sweeping lawn down to the lake and almost panoramic views from the bluff overlooking the islands across the water. State land adjoins this property so it feels as if you are miles from civilization but the town of Crosslake is only 4 miles away and you can walk 3/4 to the charming local pub! Pleas call me for additional pics and info. Nancy 973 670 1952

About Nancy Thayer Haggerty

Grew up in St. Paul; my husband was born and raised on the east coast. We have retired here to the family cabin where I have been spending summers all my life. My folks bought this cabin almost 50 years ago! We spend winters in Palm Springs, play lots of golf and travel. We are blessed. I have no children so we are truely happy to be able to share this wondrous cabin with other families. This past summer of '14 was the first time we hep ave EVER rented it and we were so delighted with ALL the families who stayed here! Wonderful,wonderful families who loved it and took such good care of it!...most are planning a return visit in summer of 2015 so I sincerely believe we will book up early.

Nancy Thayer Haggerty purchased this cabin in 1965

Why Nancy Thayer Haggerty chose Crosslake

This cabin has become a landmark on the chain as it is one of the few remaining original, untouched log cabins. Most everyone knows of it and many boats slow down in admiration as they pass by! It has been featured three different years at the Crosslake Historical Log Home Tour which was begun by my mother and our current neighbors who also have a wonderfully special home. 90% of the furnishings and decor are original and of the 1880 - 1930 antique period (minus, of corse, modern neccessities ie; beds, appliances and TVs). A wunderous step back in time! We think you'll just marvel as you will feel like you are back in the 1920s / 30s of 'Up North'...but still, the cabin is very comfortable and liveable .

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin and the grounds are unusually peaceful, private and serene. My husband and I were married on the lawn overlooking the lake 25 years ago. Could be used for a family wedding !? An amazing deck runs the entire length of the cabin and has French doors leading to it from almost every room in the cabin. The huge screened in porch makes for great entertaining and just hanging , talking eating, laughing and drinking late into the night!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
What a perfect home and location for our family summer vacation. It surpassed my expectations and we will definitely try to come back here again. We have 3 children and I can't describe the excitemnt they had in exploring this beautiful log cabin home with its nooks and crannies for hide and go seek. It was beautifully kept and was the perfect get-a-way. Situated right on the lake with a dock that was perfect for our boat and wave runner. I spent lots of time on the swing overlooking the lake and the goregous deck off the back of the house. We roasted marsmallows in the fire pit and played in the large back yard. We saw lots of deer and enjoyed walks in the area. It was a quick ride to town where there were several great restuarants. The owners of this beautiful log cabin are the best and made us feel like family staying in their home. The home is decorated with wonderful antiques and neat things to see. We enjoyed perfect weather, but there are TVS and DVD players if you need a break from the sun or have a rainy day. We enjoyed building puzzles (there are a couple there) and playing a bunch of games. We stayed for a week and I didn't want to leave. I definitely recommend it.

The best experience you will ever have in Northern MN!

Wow….this cabin is amazing!! We stayed there from July 26-August 2nd. The pictures do not do it justice on VRBO. The cabin is well decorated and very clean. The large deck and screened in porch was perfect for viewing the lake and visiting with family and friends. The deck even has a gas fired pit which added a nice touch as one sat outside in the evening listing to the loons call.
The backyard was beautiful and well landscaped with a lot of privacy and a very nice fire pit for roasting hotdogs and doing s’mores.
We used their bikes and canoe at the cabin almost every day. There is a nice sandbar a short canoe trip from the cabin for swimming where the water is about 2-3’ deep.
All in all a 5 star rating!!
The owner is super sweet and very professional making you feel like family.

LOTS OF LIVING SPACE!
