About the property

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

This lake home is located in perhaps the most desirable location on the Whitefish Chain, on the east side of the lake where you'll see the most amazing sunsets. It's only 2 minutes from shopping, gas stations, restaurants, golf course, the Crosslake Dam & The Corp of Engineers camp ground and RV park. Where there are 2 boat launching ramps.

Come and relax at 'Peaceful Pines' with it's beautiful views of the lake, sandy beach and sugar sands all the way out to the end of the dock! You'll love experiencing amazing sunsets with a glass of wine while sitting on the large outdoor deck or on the beach.

It's a great home 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. There is 120' of sandy lake shore and clear water. We have newer docks with a solar powered boat lift.

The home has a large family room upstairs with a 12' long picture window overlooking the lake, a queen sofa bed couch, 2 very comfortable Lazy-Boy chairs, 2 small ottomans and a stone fireplace. There's a 50" flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo system for your enjoyment. There's also a large over sized A/C unit to cool the upstairs on those hot humid days. This room is the perfect relaxation spot after a fun day of boating around on the Whitefish Chain!

The kitchen was renovated a couple of years ago, with S/S & black appliances, granite tiled counter tops and maple cabinets. The dining room has a mid-century country french table that seats up to seat 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 to the lower level walk out patio area. You'll have lake views from your bed. This room has a queen size bed, dresser, chest of drawers and a small walk in closet. The larger full bathroom is downstairs, along with a half bath right inside the lower level entry door. For quick trips from the lake.

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 south room has a queen size. There is a 3/4 bathroom upstairs between the 2 bedrooms.

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 lake front 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 while watching the amazing sunsets!

In the yard overlooking the lake, there's a large 8' wood picnic table and a fire ring for those evening bon fires and roasting marshmallows. This is a perfect location for entertaining your friends.

Looking out to the lake, there's a covered screen house that houses a Weber gas grill and an Weber charcoal grill. You can cook out even if it's raining!

For those wonderful summer nights we have a fire ring on the sandy beach.

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

All of these amenities will make for a wonderful get-a-way lake vacation that will give you life time memories with your loved ones.

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

About Craig Lindholm

My husband is a native of Minnesota and has been coming to Cross Lake for part of every summer for over 60 years. Other family members first purchased property on Cross Lake 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 Crosslake

We purchased our 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

Cross Lake 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!

A beautiful week on Cross Lake.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of August 5th on lovely Cross Lake. The cabin was very clean and well equipped with everything a family would need for a fun stay. The sunsets were awesome as we sat by the fire pit on the beach. There was plenty of available split wood for the fires. We were fortunate to meet the owners, Valerie and Craig, who are both super friendly people. There is a second refrigerator in the basement which was very useful with six people in the cabin. Without a doubt this is a place we want to come back to. You will not be disappointed.

Everything you could want in accommodations. Clean, comfortable and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property, along with the accomadations are fantastic! Our boys who are 8 and 5 could not get enough of the fishing off the dock, swimming and smores! For those with a boat, having the remote power boat lift was awesome! I highly recommend a nearby pontoon rental for a day. It was a great way to enjoy the chain of lakes in comfort. Bring your bikes! The bike trail through Crosslake is a block away with many restaurants, ice cream shops and mini golf along the way. None of us wanted to leave! We were lucky enough to meet the owners Craig and Val towards the end of our trip. Wonderful people! 5 stars all the way!

Cozy. Great view.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was adaquit. The bedrooms on main floor were a bit small. Basement bedroom was good. It would have been nice to have a microwave down stairs, fan and perhaps a love seat and an actual door on the bedroom area instead of a curtain as some people are early risers while others prefer to sleep in a bit. The shower heads were not very good. I suggest in the upstairs shower you get a shower with a hand held to it. As that shower was quite small. The living room and dining area was nice. The deck and fire pit were great. We also used the grill and noticed a screen was missing so mosquitoes were a problem while cooking. It was also very nice to have a washer and dryer as well as dishwasher. We enjoyed our stay very much. The town has everything you could need.

A Great Week On Crosslake

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd summer at Peaceful Pines. That in itself says a lot. Cabin is 100% suited to our needs and sits on a wonderful lake, with a nice sand beach, a perfect dock system & boat lift; what more would you need? Sitting on a nice camp chair at the end of the dock looking towards the west, having a hot cup of coffee along with a good book at 8:00 am can't be beat, especially with the sun rising behind you. Looking forward to 2018. Thanks again to the Lindholm family!

What a vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure you will find a more beautiful spot on Cross Lake to have a vacation. This place is within walking/biking distance to the grocery store, playground, beach, ice cream shop, and gas station. There is no need to drive the boat around to find a sandbar to play on because there is an awesome sandy bottom right next to the dock. The powered boat lift is another plus.

This was our second time staying here and we will be back again. The owners are awesome people who genuinely care that their renters have a great experience. You will not be disappointed in this property.
