Get Your Priorities Straight at West Crooked Lake
Ease off the throttle and roll through the forested gravel bends as a sign appears ahead, on the left: West Crooked Lake Resort. Finally, a country, lakeside retreat — without the monotony of endless resorts and boat traffic stretching into the horizon — humbly greets fellow visitors.
Aside from a handful of quaint, neighboring homes and a camping area hidden under the trees, there’s just five charming cabins and a log lodge to appease the ambiance. Each cabin has its own little balcony or deck, grill and elevated lake view.
Take a full, 3D walkthrough tour of the cabins and grounds here.
Yet Cabin #2, a full log cabin with it’s own distinct presence, is the highlight of the tour. Entertain a whole host of guests with three-level living, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a walkout basement, huge vaulted ceilings, a towering backyard deck and a kitchen-living room area suitable for a feast of a summer cookout.
But the lake completes the package. Take a kayak or canoe to the mysterious, little island across the bay while the others watch from their beach towels. West Crooked Lake is true to its name, and exploring its nooks and inlets offers great fishing and photographic opportunities. Norway pines define both shore- and skyline in nearly all directions, a continuation of the Mantrap chain of lakes that’s well known for its angling history.
What’s more, a fish-cleaning shack, laundry house and recycling area add the adequate amount of conveniences to make a weeklong trip enjoyable, not unbearable. See the full listing here.
