About Big Island


A rare opportunity to own one of a few private islands on the famous Whitefish Chain of Lakes, in the center of Minnesotas premiere recreation area. Just 3 hours north of Minneapolis/St Paul airport for easy access from anywhere and Brainerd also has an airport, which is 20 miles away.

The Whitefish Chain has 14 interconnected lakes, which includes 14,000 acres of water and 120 miles of shoreline. And if thats not enough water for you, there are over 400 other lakes in the county.

Big Island is located on Rush Lake, the center of the chain, so you have easy access to all the area lakes. Big Island is about 30 acres, 1/2 of which is included in the sale (about 16 acres). The other half is owned by a conservation group and it can never be developed, yet you are allowed to hike on it so it is as if you own the entire island.

Even on busy weekends, you feel very secluded while on the island. However, if you are looking for activity, there are plenty of dining and entertainment choices you can boat to. There are more than 20 golf courses within 30 miles of the area, including some of the top rated courses in the state.

Unlimited parking for trailers and cars and a boat launch are available at the Crosslake Park, a short boat ride away. A small mainland lot may be available nearby for parking only.

2 small cabins are included. The larger cabin is about 800 sq ft and has one bedroom and bath and kitchen. The smaller cabin is an efficiency with one room and a bathroom. Both have decks overlooking the lake with amazing views and sunsets.

There is electricity and phone and even high speed internet, so you can work if you really need to. There are 2 docks, a boat lift, and plenty of very nice sandy areas to swim. The lakes are spring fed with the Pine River also running thru so it remains crystal clear all year.

Great fishing is available from the island. Wildlife abounds right on the island, too. Deer are often spotted and are known to swim over and have their babies on the island. An active bald eagles nest is located on the island and are frequently seen gliding by.

Any division or development would have to be approved by the city of Crosslake which we would be willing to help with. Purchase of 1/2 the property may be available also.
