We spent a month at Cross River Lodge last summer (2011) and stayed in one of the cabins. It was no doubt the best vacation of our lives! We're going again this summer (2012) and are counting the days. John, Rose, Paula, and Doug are fantastic hosts. It wasn't long before we thought of them as family. My husband loves to fish and I love to hike We both love berry picking. There are canoes available free--first come, first serve, and also pontoon boats to rent. There are so many advantages to staying at Cross River. We checked out ALL the area cabins and lodges as far away as Grand Marais and CR was by far the best choice in every category. All the comforts of home in the Minnesota "wilderness." And a great break from the oppressive heat of Southeast Kansas!
