The Bike Vault is a 3BR walk-up conveniently located on Main St in Crosby steps away from shops, restaurants/brewery, trails, etc. with a distinct bike-themed euro-modern feel in a historic bank building w/amenities galore. Spacious & bright w/high ceilings + keep your bikes in the original bank vault at night (how cool is that?). Sleep well in the 3 themed BRs (Map/Tandem/Gear). Did we mention the oh-so-cool Bike Library? Enjoy!

The space
We fell in love with Crosby , the Cuyuna trails and this historic 110-year old First National Bank building. We have lovingly renovated the original 2nd floor Bank president/VP offices into an 1,100sqft unique space that pays homage to Crosby & biking (six collectable bikes adorn the walls). The over-sized commercial glass fridge holds all your food/beverages and the euro-modern kitchen let's you whip up the basics for breakfast, lunch and dinner (note: there are two portable induction cooktops & smaller euro-style oven). Watch your favorite YouTube vids or listen to your Pandora station on the 75" TV (fast WiFi) in the kitchen/hangout space. Upscale beds & bedding/100% cotton towels & sheets/vanity+hair dryers+mirrors in each BR (frees up the shower/bathrooms) to make getting ready for your next adventure a breeze. Addl supplies (e.g. broom/dustpan, vacuum, sheets) are located in the Tandem Room closet.

COVID-19
Please know that we’re doing our part to help you stay safe by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.) before you check in as well as allowing 24-48 hours between guest stays. To keep your costs down, we are subsidizing the additional cleaning costs.

The Vault
There are four professional business spaces on the main level of the building in addition to the original bank vault (locked keypad entry) where you will store your bikes. During regular work hours, please be respectful & courteous (shhhh!) as you wheel your bike down the hallway into the vault. Due to COVID-19, limit your time in the building's common spaces. In addition to also being mountain bikers, we love to collect & ride vintage cruisers, so you'll see our bikes in the vault. And stay foot-loose and fancy-free by leaving your bike gear (e.g. helmet, shoes, jerseys) locked safely in the vault.

GOTTA LOVE Those High Ceilings!
The Bike Vault apartment is located on the 2nd floor - there are 22 steps that you walk up to access the apartment (no elevator). We run the heat/air 24/7 to keep the temperature/humidity constant (keeps dust/allergen levels down), so please leave the windows and doors closed. Thank you!

No Pet Policy
While we love pets, we want to be sensitive to those with allergies (to keep our space as clean & fur-free as possible), so we have a strict No Pet Policy.

Guest access
You are renting the entire 2nd floor loft that includes a full kitchen, dining area, the Bike Library living area, 3 Bedrooms, full bath and half-bath.

There are 7+ downtown restaurants offering curb-side pickup or dine-in options within 1-2 blocks of the The Bike Vault.
Downtown Crosby is exploding with new businesses every day. Just steps away from The Bike Vault are a few of our favorites (we have a LOT): Iron Range offers excellent cuisine & fantastic outdoor setting, Cuyuna Brewing has tasty brews, Rafferty's where you can enjoy pizza & beer on the loft deck, Red Raven Bikes has delish paninis & cool bike gear, Trailside Tavern offers upscale bar food & specials and Victual (featuring Rave Creamwork's super premium ice cream) offers gourmet cheeses, fun/unique gifts & has MN's smallest liquor store.
Other great local businesses include the Croft Pub (tasty burgers/fries), North Country (great breakfasts), Mixed Company (coffee/tea/pastries/sandwiches), Hardwater (craft cocktails), and Spalding House Bar for tap beers/wine & spirits. Crosby simply has it all. Within 2+ blocks: Super One Grocery w/deli, 2 liquor stores, hardware store, pharmacy & more.

My hubby Jay & I are all about biking (we own 32 bikes!); we love to travel the USA and world to mountain bike/fat bike, and explore. We're avid outdoor seekers - we camp, hike, snowshoe, XX-ski, trail run, kayak, canoe, and SUP and are at our happiest in smallish cities, local & national parks (latest parks: Yellowstone and Grand Teton). While our home base is the Driftless area of Wisconsin (Madison), we also spend a fair amount of time near our favorite mountain bike trails (Cuyuna) in Crosby, MN so we can mountain bike/fat bike (and snowshoe, canoe/kayak/SUP) to our heart's content. Life is good.
