About Joe Weekley

Long time former vacation lake home renters who decided to act on our dream and build our own lake home. Due to years of experience renting from others, have made this lake home the type of home that our family and children would have wanted to rent.

Joe Weekley purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Joe Weekley chose Brainerd Lakes

Our children learned how to waterski and fish on the beautiful whitefish chain while we spent time enjoying this serene up north area. After a fun-packed day on the lake, our kids were lulled to sleep by the loons. This is a tradition we made and hope you too can make it yours.

What makes this cabin unique

This is our dream lake home that we designed with family and friends in mind. We chose the lake and the view first and then built the home. We incorporated an open floor plan that has majestic windows overlooking the lake.

What a lovely lake home, what a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful late summer vacation at this ideal location on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes.

This new lake home is very large and beautifully decorated, and it is laid out in a very family friendly way. The kitchen-dining-living great room with its two-story windows to the lake was fantastic for family time and for just kicking back enjoying the view or watching TV.

The master suite on the main level worked out great for grandma and grandpa. The two bedrooms on the upper level with lake views from the loft family space, and the two bedrooms (plus spacious family room) on the lower level provided great privacy and separation for the entire family. Most importantly, the mattresses on the beds were soooo comfortable!!

We had great weather and spent many leisurely afternoons outside relaxing and reading under the pines on the large, lake-facing, grassy lawn. The home is set on the high bank that surrounds much of the chain providing fantastic southeasterly views of Pig Lake. The steps down to the private boat dock and to the large inflated swimming raft are well constructed. The dock easily accommodated the pontoon we rented at the Bait Box in Crosslake for cruising the large Whitefish Chain of Lakes.

We found that everything was very clean and that the home and property were very well cared for. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with, and we promptly got our damage deposit refunded after we returned home.

We would definitely love to stay again at this lovely lake home.

Minnesota Retreat for Extended Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

There was eight in our extended family group from NY, NJ, TX and MN. The cabin home was perfect with 5 bedrooms on three floors with large family and eating areas easily accommodating all of us. It felt like a beautiful retreat away from everything with a beautifully decorated cabin / home and a gorgeous view of the lake. Very relaxing atmosphere for those wanting to get away.

We rented a pontoon boat from bait box and fished almost every day. The house is located on a smaller lake just off the bigger lake providing several great areas for fishing. We were not very experienced but did catch some bass, catfish and northern pike.

There was so much to do in the area....we rode bikes, played golf, fished, shopped, hiked on nature trails and just enjoyed the overall ambiance of the area. The nearby small towns of Crosslake and Pequot Lakes provided friendly atmospheres with many things to do. There was even a flea and craft festival in town where we purchased some beautiful hand made quilts.

In the evening we often used the outdoor firepit, played bouce ball or grilled outside the home. Weather was chilly at times (last week in Aug) but most of the time pleasant even without the sun.

We would highly recommend your home and location to others.

Awesome Week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week vacation and had a wonderful time! We have three young boys who love to be "up north" at the cabin and this place definitely has that feel, from the neighborhood and surroundings to the cabin decor and the lake. Some of the things we enjoyed were being on the Whitefish Chain but located on a bay or smaller lake so the water was calmer. We love to grill and cook and the kitchen and eating areas both outside and inside had all we needed to accommodate depending on the weather. Beautiful fire pit and chairs and wonderful stargazing like we don't see in the city! Our boys enjoyed fishing and caught several off the dock, even a couple of "keepers" that they were proud of. Thanks to the owners for being so polite, pleasant and easy to work with. It is evident that you have aimed to please the renter and would say you have definitely accomplished that!

A Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is magnificent. All 10 of us (aged 2 - 66) plus infant were comfortable. We prepared all our meals grilling a lot. We fished, played in the lake, bounced on the trampoline, and played tag in the yard. We made s'mores in the fire pit. We rented a pontoon one day and had fun tubing. We enjoyed walking around Nisswa and having yummy pizza there. It is so beautiful there nestled in the trees among so many lakes. The purple Widow's Tears on the hill are pretty.
