“The Miner” Perfect for the biking, snowmobiling, fishing, and boating vacation

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,800 sq ft
Property type house

About the property

The Miner was remodeled in 2003 from one of the original mining homes in Crosby. After the mines were shut down the Crosby Taxi Service operated from this location. The Miner is now a beautiful 3-bedroom home that serves as our getaway to the lake country. Mountain biking, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling and exploring are just some of the awesome activities available.

The upstairs bedroom and bath are not included with this rental. Nobody rents the upstairs we just prefer to keep it closed off and only used during our stays. There are 2 bedrooms and one full bathroom on the main floor. Bedroom 1 has one queen bed. Bedroom 2 has one double bed. The living room and sunroom have enough space for air mattresses for extra guest. The kitchen is very large with plenty of room for cooking and gathering of friends. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need. Both bedrooms have linens and blankets. There are towels and wash clothes available in the bedroom closet. Laundry on-site. Air-conditioning for those warm summer days. BBQ-grill and fire pit located in the large back yard, perfect for a fun evening with friends and family. High speed internet and a flat screen TV so bring your Roku or Amazon Stick.

Crosby has so much to offer when visiting with family and friend. Awesome bike trails, walking trails, bike/water toy rental shops, a beautiful beach, fishing pier, large playground and skate/bike park by the beach, antique shops, coffee shops, home town feel bars, and so much more to enjoy.

Great place for a weekend of 'shredding the red'

  • 4 of 5

Place has 2 bedrooms and a ton of space for air mattresses. Kitchen is also well stocked with anything you might need (equipment that is) for cooking any meal. Might have been a bit on the high side price wise for the weekend, but at a better rate, I would absolutely stay here again!

Clean, updated and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Crosby for a wedding and everyone in our party loved this house. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially if you come up to trail ride Mountain bike at Cuyuna!
