Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Nisswa

I am looking for the right family to enjoy a summer vacation in a beautiful cabin with plenty of room and only 600 feet from a sugar sand beach and dock with large sundeck. Great swimming area.

The log home was built in 2000. It features an open architecture that fosters group interaction and fun. This cabin is close to championship golf courses, restaurants, spas, night clubs, shopping, and much more. We can only rent three times a year, so we will be looking at family vacations only with a minimum stay of two weeks. Please call to discuss your requirements in more detail.

About Mark Utter

I grew up in the Twin Cities, but spent my summers here at Gull Lake. I am the fourth generation to be living the dream and spending much of the summer at Gull Lake in the family cabin accross the street. I also wrote a book called 'BrainerdBound: Landmark to the Lakes' which is a coffeee table picture book about the area. I sold 12,000 copies and will provide you with your own copy.

Mark Utter purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Mark Utter chose Minnesota

I have been coming to our family cabin for my whole life and wanted to have my children enjoy the same thing. My wife and I decided to build a log cabin (home) accross the road to provide us with more room and the ability to have our children, with mom, live all summer 'at the lake'. Now our kids are grown and we have decided to rent this property until they have kids and want to live up here in the summer.

What makes this cabin unique

This is truly a special place. The neighbors we have around us have owned their cabins for decades. Rarely do cabins come up for sale on this beach. We are within a few quarter mile of historic Grand View Lodge and are on the most beautiful beach on the lake. The north shore of Gull Lake is a special place with clean, crystal clear sand bottom swimming area.

Fabulous cabin, neighbors too close

  • 4 of 5

We had such an amazing weekend. We found the cabin to be clean, functional, and really cool. Unfortunately we were too noisy for the neighbors by having 10+ people around the fire pit. The owner was very polite and patient while we got volume under control. With everybody celebrating indoors with windows and doors closed, we had a great time quietly enough. It was a bit of a shame being at a cabin in a beautiful area and staying indoors in nice weather.

Family Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were first timers for our family gathering, but we will definitely be back! This home is clean, well kept and has everything to keep all ages busy inside or out. A bonus for us was a short walk to shop, dine or enjoy a spa day at a nearby resort.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin furnished with everything you will need. It truly became our home away from home. The fully stocked kitchen has every appliance and every cooking utensil that a gourmet cook will need. My group cooked lots of our meals in the kitchen and we were never short an item that we needed. The location is peaceful and a perfect place to rest. It is located close to sevveral small towns that provided enough shopping and spa experiences to keep us all happy. I would recommend this LUXURY LOG HOME to all of my friends and I plan to return.
