About Doug Vinge

I also love gardening which you will see if you every stay .Totally enjoy the up-north lifestyle.

Doug Vinge purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Doug Vinge chose Brainerd Lakes

To live on the Whitefish chain of lakes has been a dream of mine since i visited it first when i was 16. I purchased the lot in 1994, remodeled what is now the guest house, built the Log house in 05, and a 30x60 garage and carriage house in 06. I caught my biggest walleye 50 yards of my dock, 28 incher.

Update:the guest house exterior and bath have been totally remodeled, check out the last picture on my site 2012.

What makes this cabin unique

beautiful beach, hard bottom swim area, some of the best golfing in the US within 15 miles.

great bass and northern fishing and even a walleye now and then, fishing guides will pick you up right at the dock, Marina with rentals and gas dock across the lake, boat to a golf coarse play a round and have dinner before you boat home, night life and dancing by boat, or a romantic sunset dinner, all by boat

Perfect for our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing family vacation - 10 adults and 3 small children. This place met every one of our needs and more! First of all, the home and property are incredibly beautiful. You will never want to leave. The kitchen and dining area are simply spectacular with everything you could possibly need to do your cooking. Just bring your food. We went out for dinner only one of the nights during the week and sort of wished we had stayed there and cooked it ourselves, because that was such a part of the fun. We spent a ton of time on the wonderful beach, which is huge and clean. We brought our own pontoon, fishing boat and jet ski, but there are opportunities for rental if you need it. The Bertha Boatworks is a 5 minute drive away for launching and a minute or two ride by boat - very convenient. We used the standing paddle boards and kayaks supplied by the owner and they were big hits with everyone. The sleeping accommodations were plentiful and very comfortable. There is a full kitchen in the lower level as well as another large family room. There are laundry facilities on each level. I could go on and on about all these amenities - just look at the pictures and read about them. Most importantly, the owner, Doug, couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. We had a storm one evening and the power went out, which falls under the "act of God" category. It came back on during the day, but Doug was more than helpful in dealing with it and checking on how we were doing. He really wants you to have a great time and does everything he can to ensure that. We highly recommend this place. We had one of the best vacations ever as a family. Extremely satisfied!

Happy Campers

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a two week stay here. It's our second year staying at this location. It worked great for our large family with ages ranging from 4-90 years old. It has everything you could ever want in a vacation get away from boat lifts, great beach, grill and the best kitchen and gathering room you will ever find. We have stayed in 5 other locations on the Whitefish Chain but this place takes first place. The owner makes you feel right at home and very welcome. We can't say enough about this location. You have to see and be there to fully appreciate it. It's great😀

A wonderful place to celebrate 33 years of Women's Weekend! The house is gorgeous and is great for a large group of friends. Lots of space for group gatherings and lots of spots for private time. We loved the beach, screen porch, the spacious deck and the beautiful gardens. Doug was a great host and was available for all of our questions. We plan to repeat next year!!

We stayed here for my parents 30th wedding anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. Beautiful log home with all the top end amenities. Plenty of places to lounge, the yard and landscaping is amazing, best beach on the whole lake. Truly the ideal log lake home. We will definitely be coming back!
