If you are looking for the 'cabin experience', this classic Minnesota cabin won't disappoint. This property was just completely renovated in the fall of 2014 and is a brand new listing on the rental market as of late March 2015. Essentially this property is brand new inside and out. Done in a true cabin feel, it has a wonderful open floor plan on the main level that features a combined great room/kitchen/living room. This area features vaulted ceilings, a wonderful screen porch overlooking the lake and a real stone fireplace for those chilly nights; and all with panoramic views of beautiful O'brien Lake. The main level further features a lakeside master bedroom and bathroom complete with tile shower. The lower level features an additional bedroom, a second designated bunk room, and an additional informal bunk area along with a second bathroom which also includes a custom tile shower. In addition, the lower level features a built-in game/puzzle table along with a leather sectional couch and entertainment area for a rainy day or movie night! The lower level also features tremendous lake views and all interior spaces (main and lower level) flow seamlessly to a large lakeside firepit area just steps from the water for those true Minnesotan's! The rental comes complete with a pontoon boat (2014 Bennington), and of course a hammock in the yard for those lazy days. For those that need to stay connected, the cabin also includes Wi-Fi and two high definition TV's with DirecTV (including a lower level area that has a blue ray DVD player and surround sound). And don't worry, you won't be roughing it, the 2014 renovation was done in good taste so along with the granite counter tops, the wood plank floors, and the reclaimed details it also brought all new mechanical systems including air conditioning, new appliances, and a Culligan softened water system.

Situated 5 miles east of the town of Crosslake, crystal clear Lake O'Brien is spring fed with a water clarity of 24', the cleanest lake in the entire watershed district. The lake itself is surrounded by mature pines. There is approximately 5 miles of shoreline, of which about a quarter of the lake is undeveloped state owned property. During the summer, this recreational lake is perfect for fishing, skiing, wake boarding canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding and all water based activities, including floating on an air mattress!! There is a sandbar where you can walk across the lake which is a favorite gathering spot for 'kids of all ages'!! It's location on a quiet tar township road make it perfect for a morning walk or bike ride. During the winter months the lake is perfect for ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and is a perfect base camp to access the endless miles of groomed snowmobile trails.

This property is perfect for a family, an extended family, or a couple families; we have a limit of 9 occupants. There are 2 Queen beds (1 per bedroom), 3 single beds (in the bunk areas) and a double bed (bottom bunk). We do keep our calendar updated and so if you are seeing availability then it's likely available. Upon reservation confirmation you'll receive a complete 'what to bring' list so you are prepared for your time up north. Feel free to inquire with any questions you may have and we’ll be prompt to reply! We pride ourselves on keeping our property and structures/equipment pristine and are certain we'll exceed your expectations in that regard. And further, since we also live on this lake, should any questions or problems arise we can respond quickly. In fact, your only disappointment will be when you have to leave!!

Charming Cabin Feel with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a fantastic stay at the Cabin. The living area was cozy and functional with amazing views of the lake. Our family loves to cook, and we were amazed by how well stocked the kitchen is. With a great layout, integrated music system, updated bathrooms and a beautiful fireplace, we felt like we were at home from the moment we walked in.

The location is also amazing. Although we went in the winter, we were still able to enjoy the beautiful scenery. It was very quiet and serene, and we enjoyed walking around (and on) the lake. We saw the resident bald eagle every day when we turned off the main road. Between him, the numerous deer, the birds, we got a full-on nature experience.

Overall the trip was amazing. Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay there longer. We look forward to going back in the summer when we can really take advantage of the rest of the lake and the surrounding areas.

Beautiful Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend away at Matt & Renae's cabin. Matt & Renae were friendly, generous, and easy to coordinate with. The cabin was beautifully finished and comfortable. Great size for our group of 6. Lots of nice walks around the lake, games around the table, and long mornings reading.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our girl's week end! It has everything we needed and more. It is very well thought out with all the little details, and the beds were amazingly comfy. We enjoyed the sound system to play music and never even turned on the TVs! We loved watching the deer and eagles on our trips to and from Cross Lake, which is such an easy drive from the cabin.

Thank you so much, Matt and Renae, for allowing us to 'borrow' your cabin to create some wonderful memories!
