Testimonials

The cabin was great. We especially liked the kitchen and the barbecue. There were a lot more utensils and appliances than we expected which was nice. There were canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards available to use free of charge which are a lot of fun. The location is excellent as it is close to some great bike/hiking trails. I would stay here again.  Skylar, May 2018

My family had a great time at the cabin. The cabin had air conditioning and wifi which was really nice and unexpected. The fishing was good on the lake and the resort provided paddle boards, a canoe, kayaks, a water trampoline and games and movies! Overall great experience and would definitely recommend 🙂  Janelle, May 2018

My husband & I stayed here for a long weekend the end of September. The resort being back in the woods is beautiful, quiet& calming. The lake was very clear & clean. The cabins are very clean & stocked with everything that a person needs down to coffee creamer if you happen to forget yours! We met Susan , the owner & 3 of her sisters. All very sweet & welcoming! We will be back!!!  Tracey, October 2017

We had a very enjoyable stay at West Crooked Lake Resort. The cabin was ultra clean. The lake is clear and great for boating and fishing. We also liked the wooded setting away from the main road.  Pam G, October 2017

Our family has been staying at West Crooked Lake Resort since 2011 for our summer family vacation. We love the personalized, family-oriented atmosphere that Susan and her family provide from the beautiful landscaping and clean, well-appointed cabins (our family has stayed in cabins #3 and #5 in the past and now stay in #2) to the fun activities for every age group. During our stays, we have had children of all ages from babies up to teenagers as well as multi-generational adults, and cabin #2 has always accommodated our needs whether by including thoughtful amenities such as baby gates, a cot in the closet with extra sheets and pillows, or a washer and dryer or by providing enough space in the three-level cabin that one can find a quiet corner to read or relax in amid a large family group. There’s also the wonderful wrap-around deck and lower patio for enjoying as well. On the lake and outdoors, the older kids and adults love the paddleboat, the “Bongo” (water trampoline), kayaking and canoeing while the little ones enjoy paddling in the clear water near the shore, building endless sandcastles (with all the fun building tools provided), and playing on the playground. All of these activities are within view of each of the cabins. We really only leave the resort mid-week to head to Nevis or Park Rapids for additional provisions; otherwise, we are content to just enjoy the beautiful lake and our time together. We always look forward to hearing the first loon call and seeing the first bald eagle fly overhead. We’re so happy that we found West Crooked Lake Resort. It’s become a family tradition where we have made so many memories and look forward to making many more in the years to come.  Sasha, July 2017

If you are looking for a great place to get away and relax, Susan’s cabin will be a perfect place to go. The location is secluded and far enough from the city. The cabin itself is well maintained and up to date. The host, Susan, was nice and flexible. She was present throughout our whole stay and helped us when asked. Her brother’s family was up for the weekend too and they were great company as well. Overall, it was a great experience. My family and I will definitely come visit again.  Julia, July 2017

I have been coming back to West Crooked Lake Resort for at least 8 years. I’ve kind of lost count. Secluded in the forest, this resort is small and so lovely. The water is clean and clear. The grounds are beautiful. Close by are casinos, Dorset, Park Rapids, and Nevis. Always something to do, great places to eat, and shopping to your hearts desire. I love West Crooked LakePat, July 2017

Just wanted to send a quick note saying how much we enjoyed your resort and cabin.  It was so nice there and weather was pretty good all things considered, and your brother went out of his way to make us comfortable.  We enjoyed visiting with him.

And thanks so much for the nice bottle of wine.  That was very kind of you and we enjoyed it immensely.  The leave were just starting to show their color so it was difficult to leave the trees for the prairie.  I hope we can rendezvous their again next year.

Again, thanks much for your hospitality.  Stan,  September 2016

This was a wonderful find. We booked last minute as we decided to bring our dog with us for our weekend trip. Susan was a wonderful communicator and the whole experience was great. We will definitely stay there again when we are in town!  It was private, the perfect size for us and an absolutely adorable cabin in the woods.  Patty, September 2016

This is a fabulous little resort. Very quiet and has every thing you need. The one room cabin (Cabin 1) is small, but has everything you need for a weekend stay. The kitchen is very well equipped to make a meal, whether you grill or have another meal. The deck on the one room cabin was small, but just the right size for two adults and a dog. Susan is a great hostess and will ensure you have what you need. Check it out!   Edie, September, 2016
