About Lisa Schwanke

This has been our family's summer retreat for the past 25 years. My daughter and her family own the cabin right next door. Talk to her son, Michael who manages the property about guided fishing trips, unique day trips and where the best spots are to recreate on the lake. He knows the hidden gems! If you'd like to setup a trip during your stay visit or contact him at

Why Lisa Schwanke chose Crane Lake

This place is unique in that it's one of few that has road access - making your arrival and departure smoother and easier. Cabin is rambler for easy access.. Lake side windows for gorgeous views. 200 ft of lakeshore frontage allows for spectacular views and privacy. Nearby Scotts Seaplane base is a convenient launching pad for fly-in Canadian fishing trips. A 10 min boat ride to Voyageurs National Park and the BWCA - miles and miles of pristine wilderness and unexplored interior lakes.

What makes this cabin unique

Provides a great home-base for daily adventures on and off the lake, as well as a relaxing, comfortable space to start and end your day.

Alot of things had changed in the house since we viewed the house over a year ago. No tv reception.

Owner's Response: We apologize for the lack of Satellite TV. To be fair we've had a Smart TV in the cabin for 3 years, which is also listed in the description so that hasn't changed. I'd be happy to help you back your trailer out and set you up with a fishing guide next time so you have better luck, I know a good one!

Fantastic Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow...what else can I say. After spending five days here, I cannot wait to get back! The cabin is well equipped with everything you could need/want. It's super clean, convenient, and in a quiet secluded part of the lake. Crane lake gives you access to so many other waterways with amazing fishing that you are open to your imagination. Highlight of our vacation, was a guided fishing trip with Michael to Lac Lacroix. He put us right on the fish, cooked an amazing shore lunch, and helped me catch the largest walleye of my fishing career. I can't wait to go back!

Nice cabin with all the amenities you would want in a Northwoods getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and spacious. It had 2 docks, a fish cleaning station, a firepit with a picnic table next to the firepit. Nice location. Far enough from civilization for a getaway but with enough necessities nearby.
