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!!

Beautiful cabin with quality amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual MLK hugged weekend with friends and this cabin was wonderful! The spaces, including bedrooms worked wonderfully for our group of 9. 8 might have been a little more comfortable. The cabin is really well appointed with lots of extras in the kitchen. Matt and Renae we're super responsive and helpful. Great experience with them and time at the cabin!

Relaxing Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin - nice and cozy in the cold weather. Well appointed. Huge windows bring nature indoors even on a cold winter day. Lots of birds to watch while having coffee in the morning. Very comfortable beds. Great Sonos sound system throughout the cabin. Owners Matt and Renae are nice to work with and very helpful.

Wonderful Fall Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a the O'Brien Lake Cabin during the 2nd weekend of November for a long weekend. We truly enjoyed the cabin for it's easy living and the location. The large surrounding windows brought the outside light into the cabin. It was like camping, but with ALL the comforts and none of the hassle. It felt remote, but the convenience of the Crosslake grocery stores and restaurants being 10 min away allowed flexible options for whatever we wanted to do. We had a great day trip of driving up to Walker (Reed's Sporting Good store) and then Bemidji to see Paul Bunyan and Babe and looped back through Itasac State Park. I would recommend this cabin and location to anyone! Renae and Matt were great hosts and easy to work with. We'll look forward to planning another trip here!

We thoroughly enjoyed the well appointed, spotless cabin, fires inside and out, and cruising on the pontoon to view the lovely fall colors. We look forward to returning soon!!
