About Dani or Eric Larson

My husband and I grew up in the area enjoying all it has to offer. The house has been in the family since 1982. We now live in the Twin Cities and love to visit there and spend time with old friends.

Why Dani or Eric Larson chose Crosby

The house is available for rental use at this time and we want to share it because it is such a great area. With the popularity of the area with miles of hiking and biking trails we want to make it available.

What makes this house unique

The home is in such a great area being only 1/2 block from town, 3 blocks from the lake and 3-4 blocks from the trail system.

Great place to stay near the trails

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Townie as a group of guys reconnecting after 25 years out of college. It was a great spot for us to hang out and have close access to the Cuyuna trail system. The owners were very responsive and flexible as some of our plans shifted. I’d highly recommend this for a small group or family looking for a stay in Crosby.

Nice and cozy. It was perfect and we loved it.

The only suggestion: a hand rail all the way to the top of the stairs for us older folks with minor disabilities with our legs.

Great location and great house

  • 5 of 5

Blocks from the beach, from antique shops on main street, from a great brewery, restaurant and coffee shop. A short 6 block bike ride to the Cuyuna trails. Our two families had a great stay at the Townie.

Memorial Day fun

  • 4 of 5

Came to Crosby for some Mt. Biking which was amazing! The house was a perfect place to stay being about 1/2 mile from the Cuyuna biking trails. Having a locked garage for our bikes was great. The house was very clean on the inside but the outdoor furniture was too dirty to even use. The kitchen could use some plates as there were only plastic plates and very limited glassware. May also be good for people to know that if they are planning on cooking they'll need to bring seasonings, cutting boards and other kitchen utensils as they are very limited. We had to buy a spatula to cook eggs in the morning. All minor issues but good for people to be aware of if they are planning on cooking in. Everything else was great!!! There are plenty of beds to sleep in, although the two double beds are in one room so be aware if you're two couples renting you'd have to share a room. Another plus, nice neighbors who were happy to tell us where to find the recycling center and others who were happy to chat about biking. All in all a very nice time in Crosby.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback! Sorry about the dishes! We may have lost some utensils that we were unaware of after the remodel project! Will pick up some more:). There are no groceries at all provided. This is strictly a vacation rental and unoccupied between guests:). Thanks again; we always appreciate guests letting us know how we can make the stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! Dani and Eric
