About Blaine Kriesel

We have been coming up to Cross Lake from the twin cities for family gatherings over the past several years. We have found the area to be so incredibly peaceful and feel the stress melt away. An awesome place to relax, unwind, enjoy the outdoors, and soak up lake life!

Blaine Kriesel purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Blaine Kriesel chose Crosslake

We fell in love with this property as we drove down West Shore Drive. Perfect views on Cross Lake. You can't beat big water views combined with perfect sandy shoreline, easy elevation and a great mix of pine & hardwood tree lines.

What makes this cabin unique

The home has big picture windows, sliding patio doors, and an open feeling like you are right on the water. The lakeside deck is huge with the additional concrete patio and deck under the canopy of trees. All that combined with the over sized lot, lakeside fire pit, and great location, it is a wonderful place to be!

Cozy winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our weekend reunion. The cabin was very cozy and slept 14 of us comfortably. The house was well stocked, so anything we forgot, we ended up having on hand. The owners were also very accommodating and responsive, and I was able to communicate with them immediately when we blew a fuse and couldn't find the breaker box. We used the shuttle service to go to Zorbaz, which was really convenient. Great location, cozy cabin and accommodating owners. Overall, we had a great weekend and would definitely rent this cabin again.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin worked great for our New Year’s celebration. The cabin was very clean, bedrooms were comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked. The owner had the driveway plowed and made sure that the cabin was at a comfortable temperature upon our arrival. It’s in a great location, very close to restaurants and there’s a shuttle service that’s easy, convenient and cheap. Being right on the lake, this would be a great cabin for ice fishing and snowmobiling. The owner (Troy) was very attentive and made sure that our weekend stay went smoothly.

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic property for vacation. Open concept home with plenty of room. Nice sand with clear water. Great for boating and floating! The yard was excellent for games and we enjoyed many campfires in the evening.

There was a great walking and bike path across the street that we used daily. There was also a very nice boat launch about 2 miles down the road. We were close to town and we rented paddle boards which was very convenient and easy and lots of fun!

Troy was very attentive during our stay which we appreciated. We have rented several places on this chain of lakes over the years and would recommend this property without any reservations. We are looking forward to coming here again!

Will rent this property every summer!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to enjoy family and feel like you are in your own home! Enjoyed a magical week at this home with 4 generations. Set up great for all, from 5-75 years old. Space to have independent time or all together time, or both! Open upper level gathering space, wonderful lower level that walks out directly to lake and yard activities. Upper deck for blissful breeze catching views or stage for karaoke performances! The owners were very attentive and responsive throughout the entire process. Well appointed and VERY comfortable. Beach is to die for!! Sugar sand for floating, great depth for boats and skiing.

We hope to be back every year. There is no better rental on the whitefish chain.

Thank you Troy for sharing this awesome treasure with our family!
