For a conveniently located, family-friendly home that’s suitable for remote-work, check out the Crank House.
This place is ideal for families—not only do you have access to the entire three-bedroom house, but you’ll also get to enjoy a spacious yard, the Shop & Lounge (more on that later), and secure storage for your bikes and gear. And, its location is ideal for red dirt, paved trail, and in-town adventures:
Mountain bike trail access? Just over three blocks away (to Drag Line trail off of HWY 6)
Paved trail access? Ten blocks to the paved Cuyuna Lakes State Trail
Proximity to town? Only one block north of Main Street, Crosby (shopping, restaurants, entertainment)
Also, just three blocks away is Crosby Memorial Park on Serpent Lake (swimming beach, skate park, playground, and boat launch)
From the moment you walk in, you’ll know you picked the right place: it’s ultra-clean, ultra-fresh, and has an open floor plan that feels bright, cheery, and welcoming. They’ve gone out of their way to provide comfortable accommodations for the whole family: a master bedroom with memory foam queen mattress, a second bedroom with a pillow-top 14” queen mattress, and a third bedroom with a full/twin bunk bed. And the bathrooms feature oversized massage showerheads for washing away the day’s red dirt!
The kitchen includes full-size stainless-steel appliances and is fully equipped for serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner—or, prepare your meals outside on either the gas grill or the Weber kettle grill (charcoal is provided).
Outside, relax on the shaded front deck, an excellent gathering zone for our spring, summer, fall days—or enjoy the yard and the various yard games available: bean bag toss, ladder toss, croquet, bocce ball. And after the sun goes down, gather around the fire pit for stories and s’mores (firewood is provided!).
Want to ride before work, over lunch, after work, or all of the above? The Crank House is the perfect midweek (or full week!) getaway—offering remote work capabilities so you can work and play throughout your stay. They even have desks in the bedrooms—including a sit-stand desk that can go up or down in the master bedroom—high-speed Wifi, and 27” monitors for you to use with your laptop!
They’ll even help you get your workday mornings off to the right start by providing their special blend of Crank House coffee.
The Crank Shop & Lounge
After a day of adventuring, spend your evenings relaxing at the Crank Shop & Lounge—a large, insulated/heated garage space located just behind the house. Here, you can stream music or movies on the 60” smart TV, play some ping-pong or foosball, and store your gear. For cyclists, there’s also a Park Tools bench repair stand, an outdoor wash station, and a secure, nine-station bike rack. Important to note: while there’s no parking in the garage (it’s entirely a hangout/gear storage space), there is plenty of parking in the back alley for cars, trucks, trailers, you name it.
Close to adventure, plenty of space for your family, and outfitted for remote work. Book the Crank House for your next stay in Cuyuna.
