About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

This lovely 1500+ sq. ft. Lake Home is near Garrison MN on Round Lake (in the Brainerd Lakes Area), just a short 1-1/2 hour trip from the Twin Cities. Minutes from a boat landing on Mille Lacs Lake.

This is the place to bring your family and friends for a relaxing time. This 1500+ sq ft house with three private bedrooms; it has 2 full bathrooms (one being off the master bedroom). You have all the comfort of home. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, utensils, dishes and small appliances. There is a full size refrigerator with large top freezer, stove, oven, and of course a microwave oven for late night popcorn, while watching your favorite DVD/VHS movie on the TV or your other favorite TV programs. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. Be sure to pack your favorite beach towel!

This Lake Home Retreat is your dream vacation on a great quiet lake with sandy beach and beautiful clear water. The lake is great for all activities - fishing, boating, swimming, skiing, paddle boating, canoeing, tubing, or just relaxing. It has great swimming for children with a shallow sandy beach with gradual depth. Provided for your enjoyment: canoe, paddle boat, bocce ball, ladder ball, croquet, board games, cards as well as a DVD/VCR for rainy days plus Dish Network to enjoy your favorite sports or shows! Relax by the lakeside fire pit and watch the beautiful sunsets over the lake. Maybe enjoy golf at one of the many courses nearby (Rutgers Bay Lake, Cuyuna Country Club, Mille Lacs Lake Golf to name a few of the courses), or how about an evening at the Casino just 7 miles away, or shopping, great eating and recreation in the Brainerd Lakes Area. For the kids, or kid in you; how about Paul Bunyan Amusement park just 10 minutes away or mini golf in nearby Deerwood. Maybe curling up with your latest favorite book, or playing board games or cards is your style. Enjoy your favorite grilled food on the large deck with the Weber grill, but remember your charcoal and lighter fluid!

If fishing is your pleasure - you will enjoy trying to catch maybe a resident northern, walleye, bass, or pan fish or just some great sun! Round Lake is about 1000 acres and up to 128 ft deep in the middle. Remember to pack your favorite lures and poles, and don’t forget your life jackets!

You, your family and/or friends will create some of those memories you will cherish for years to come. Don’t forget your camera. No guns, please.

About The Owner

We enjoy our lake home very much! We have another Lake Home and decided to rent this one - as we have decided to keep both in the family.

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Aitkin

Location was great - not too far of a drive from the Twin Cities with great roads. Close to Mille Lacs Lake for some great fishing - close to Brainerd for great entertainment. The best thing is Round Lake is a great lake, just the right size, not too busy with a lot of other boaters, it has a sandy beach with very clear clean water, and great swimming for the entire family. We are located in a great bay with very few other property owners.

What makes this house unique

The tranquility of the lake and sunsets are just amazing. It is hard to explain until you have experienced it. The sandy beach, quiet lake, swimming, and just soaking up the sun on the dock or relaxing by the fire in the fire pit are so enjoyable. The large lot makes it nice to enjoy other lawn activities while still enjoying the water. Also, watching the resident eagles soar and osprey dive for fish add to the total enjoyment of the lake experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for sharing your cabin with us this week to make family memories with our children and grandchildren. The swimming area was perfect for all ages. We loved hearing the loons each day and evening. We had a very relaxed week away from our everyday hectic schedules. P.S. We were definitely blessed with a perfect weather week!

Doug and Karen have a very nice place! The lake is so clean and clear and you can catch fish at the right time of the day. Close to many other lakes too! Doug and Karen are right next door and very helpful. They even brought over a bottle of wine and some cigars for my husband and me. Such a nice cabin! Fully stocked with EVERYTHING you could think of and some things you wouldn't (egg poacher!). There is no air conditioner, but only 2 of the days we were there were super hot and we just went shopping. Once the sun was down, it was fine, so many windows and fans make it super comfortable. We really enjoyed the Dish satellite TV as well! We haven't had cable in years! Jack Pine Brewery in Braxton, was probably the favorite place, about a 30 minute drive from the cabin and The Curio shop in Garrison is super cute for trinkets and souvenirs. Thanks again for everything Doug and Karen!

Are 5 stars enough?

  • 5 of 5

For the past 5 or 6 years we have stayed at various VRBO properties across Minnesota and we gave most

of them an "excellent" rating but Karen and Doug's property raises the bar for us! This place far exceeded our expectations! The very comfortable cabin, breathtaking views, exceptional hospitality.........really everything about our stay was perfect! We especially appreciated the use of the boat lift for our boat, level elevation to the lake, and nice wide dock. Karen and Doug go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and welcome. This will absolutely be our first choice for staying again in the future if we return to this part of the state!
