Why Teresa and Matt chose Brainerd Lakes

My family has enjoyed vacationing on Bay Lake for over 70 years - 6 generations. We have made many memories and many friends here in the area. In 2011 we found a place of our own on Bay Lake that offered lake access and a lake view. But in 2014 we could not pass up the opportunity to own a lake front home on Bay Lake. We are ready to make many more memories with family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

The public access for boat launching is just 6 miles away. Need to rent a boat? Bay Lake Marine offers affordable rentals and is located next to the public access launch. Bay Lake Camp/Church Island pontoon shuttle is available at 16257 Brighton Point Road, about a 7 mile drive. Take the pontoon shuttle to the island and enjoy outdoor church services, open to the public, held each Sunday during the summer. Shuttle starts running at 9:30am.

The Brainerd Lakes area offers something for everyone: Heartland Hockey camp is just 6 miles away. Mille Lacs Lake, Minnesota’s premier Walleye factory, is a short 10 minute drive and 20 minutes from Mille Lacs Grand Casino. A variety of golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants, movies, antique shops, amusement parks, miniature golf courses, museums, and shopping are all a short drive away. Enjoy the world class 25-mile mountain bike trails, covering 800 acres in the Cuyuna’s County State Recreation Area near Crosby. Other activities in the Cuyuna’s County State Recreation Area include scuba diving and fishing for Rainbow and Brook Trout. Into auto racing? Brainerd International Raceway is just 30 minutes away. Take a short 1 1/2 hour drive to Duluth on Lake Superior to see the large iron ore boats come in on the ship canal and tour the famous lighthouses of Two Harbors and Split Rock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second time staying at this vacation property. Again this visit was outstanding. The fish were biting and we ended the week with a tasty meal of fish. The weather was also great, so we were able to enjoy the large backyard. We also attend church services at Church Island - that is always a treat to spend the service with Mother Nature. We are looking forward to another return visit in the very near future.

Wonderful getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at Bay Lake. The fishing was great right off the dock and the rest of the lake is wonderful as well. We spent part of a day just cruising around and stopping to fish here and there. We enjoyed a campfire and smores one night and the lake was just like glass. The home was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you may need. If you want to use the dishwasher or washing machine, bring your own soap!! We forgot, but picked some up when we visited Brainerd, Baxter, Nisswa, Garrison and Crosby the day it was off and on rainy. Crosby was having their summerfest so we enjoyed walking around to all the crafters, etc. while the boys fished!! There is a great binder full of information about the home and the areas surrounding Deerwood that the owner has put together. That was useful! Everyone had a great time and as with any vacation or getaway, it wasn't long enough and went way too fast! Thank you for the use of your wonderful vacation home! We will definitely keep this spot in our catalog of "will/would visit again"!!

Owner's Response: So many cute, unique shops in the towns mentioned. It's always our rainy day activity too! The neighbors have lily pads off their shoreline - Makes for great bass fishing off the dock! Glad you enjoyed your time. Agreed - there is never enough time spent at the lake - looking forward to having you back.

Wonderful place to get away

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I spent three nights here. It was right on the lake with beautiful views. We felt right at home during our stay and could not have asked for more. The house was clean and the listing description accurately depicted the location, layout, and amenities. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

Great place to stay on Bay Lake

  • 5 of 5

This home is large with plenty of room to spread out and very clean. It was great to have a large kitchen with everything you need to cook or grill. The screen porch looks out over the lake and a great room to relax in with nice breezes. We love coming to Bay Lake because the lake is clean and has good fishing and we love to just cruise around the lake, stopping here and there to fish or swim. The shoreline at the home was not great this year for swimming but the owner had told us ahead of time that may be the case, not a problem for us since we have friends with a cabin on the lake and we spend a good deal of time there. The large yard was great, we had a camp fire a few times and enjoyed playing bocce ball with our teenage kids. The only negative was the beds were uncomfortable. The owners area awesome! We have rented several times from them, Teresa is very responsive and really makes sure your stay is great. We definitely would recommend staying here and hopefully we will be back this summer!
