Come experience Crooked Creek Retreat, a log cabin nestled in the pines and valleys created by the St. Croix River. Situated 90 minutes north of the Twin Cities, a quiet getaway with family and friends is just moments away. Enjoy mornings of birds singing and dew in the prairie, or snowy quietness among the white pines.

Crooked Creek Retreat is a place where artists can be inspired and can create together, where musicians can craft their songs and where families or small groups can gather by the fire and share in the experience of connecting with one another.

We offer one main log home and two rustic pine cabins, for up to 18 people.


The main home, a cedar log cabin, comes equipped with a full kitchen, 1 ½ baths, and a woodburning potbelly stove (as well as forced air heating). The open living area is welcoming for cultivating community. This cabin sleeps 2 in the main floor bedroom (queen bed) and 2 in the loft (queen bed). Two twin beds are in a cozy basement bedroom (with egress window). A hideabed couch is also available for an additional sleeping option.

Pricing: $200 for weekday nights, $250 for weekends (Fri, Sat nights)


The Maple Group Cabin is a unique, open and versatile space used for group retreats: family reunions, artist learning and training retreats, yoga, painting- you dream it! The cabin is heated by a large woodburning stove and sleeps 6 on built in beds. The group cabin utilizes the rustic and pleasant outhouse down the beaten path. Access to the main cabin baths is also an option, as it is right across the yard. Includes gas stove and fridge. No running water but a large Rubbermaid comes in handy for water use!

Pricing: $100 per day/overnight.


The Pine Hunter’s Cabin is down the path and past the barn, on a hill all its own. This rustic cabin has a queen bed and 2 twins (with inflatable mattresses), sleeping four. The Hunter’s Cabin is heated by a wood burning stove. A hand pump is located behind the cabin for fresh water (fill a Rubbermaid container for drinking, hand and dish washing). The outhouse is a little hike up by the Maple Cabin. In wintertime, this cabin is accessible by snowshoes, skis and sled only, as the road is not maintained.
