Chad Dixon purchased this house in 2011
This home is uniquely, and perfectly located between an award-winning Arnold Palmer designed golf course and one of the premier fishing and boating lakes in Minnesota. Nestled among some huge oaks and evergreens with a great view of the lake, it is walking distance to the clubhouse or the lake.
First of all, I want to say how prompt Chad was at returning my emails. I was skeptical at first of renting a home as I have never done so before. We have been to Breezy Point Resort many times with family. This home is about a mile or so from the actual resort. The GPS took us right to the driveway. We rent this cabin for a group of friends for a Bachelor/Bachelorette party and we couldn't have been more pleased with the space. We brought a few air mattresses and made the sleeping arrangements work. The view was beautiful, especially when the sun rose. No home is perfect, but I would recommend this place to all of our friends whom did not get the pleasure of joining us. We have already been talking about renting in the summer. We went out ice fishing and caught a few fish, mostly bottle bass :) The local bars were decent and loved going into Nisswa and Pequot Lakes to do some shopping at the local shops and even found some neat items for our upcoming wedding (since our theme is fishing). Great place to gather with great friends. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us!!
Excellent place! In contrast to previous reviews, I found it very clean and well stocked with linens, towels, light housekeeping supplies, etc. Location was a very manageable drive from the Twin Cities, with many recreational opportunities even in the winter.
We rented the lake for our yearly family vacation. There was plenty of room for 10 adults and 8 kids. Loved the pool table and golf game in the basement. Would definitely think about staying here again.
My maid of honor rented this home for my bachelorette party weekend, and I have to stay that my experience could not have been any better. There was more than enough room for the 12 of us, and even though some areas of the home needed a little TLC, it didn't bother us at all. Chad set us up with his pal Jud who took us out on the pontoon all day Saturday and we had an absolute blast. I couldn't have had a better bachelorette party weekend and would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area.
I had the job of planning a guys weekend, and really struggled to find a nice place at a reasonable price. After ruling out all the resorts I found Chad's listing. The place itself is gorgeous! Chad even upgraded his cable package for us so we could watch the Wild game. The only thing we would've liked was a pool stick, the one there was broken, but that's a simple easy fix. Would definitely recommend staying here!
We had a great stay. This cabin was perfect for us and our friends. There was plenty of room for everybody to have their own room and not be crowded. The game room was awesome with a arcade game and a pool table with a bar right there! We will definitely rent this cabin again if available. The price was very affordable for what you get compared to other cabins in the area.

Big Pelican Lake Information – The Minnesota Fishing Vacation Destination
Pelican Lake is one of Minnesota’s premier fishing lakes but in order to bring in your limit, you’re going to have to spend time learning the ropes and reefs. The bottom, fine for fish habitat, challenges the angler with an erratic mix of deep drops, sand bars, sunken islands and changeable weedlines. Your best bet is to hire a guide the first time out or watch other anglers to see where they congregate and record the spots for your own reference. Additionally, a depth finder and temperature gauge is almost a must. If you put it on the south end, find out where the line is at the ridge of the flats that extends immediately out into Jones Bay. That’s a good spot to begin. Pelican heats up later than many of the surrounding lakes so you won’t get much early action in the weed beds. Even when the water warms, this is a windy lake so it’s going to be a challenge to follow the weed lines. But that’s where you need to be. You may encounter two weed breaks, one at 10 to 15 feet and another at 20 to 25 feet. Either break is a good line to hunt. For early Bass, try the northeast bays Mousseau and Nelson – fishing the edge of the reeds with plastics and crankbaits. In summer, go deep and find the cabbage weeds along the bars and points. Jig minnows and leeches at 30 feet or even deeper. For Northerns, follow much the same pattern as for Bass. Troll or drift the cabbage beds at 20 feet with sucker minnows and/or spinners. For Walleyes, bait a Lindy rig with a shiner or fathead and drift the southern side of Halverson Bay north of the rock line or go far south and trace the two holes off Lincoln’s Point and then cast the weedlines along the southern shore. A big challenge here is the clarity of the water. To avoid spooking the fish, some recommend electric motors, drifting, casting exclusively or waiting for nightfall for Walleyes. One strong advisory, check a good navigation map before setting out onto Pelican. Note the locations where rock formations are just below the surface. Preparation will make you visit to Pelican both safe and rewarding.
