About Chad Dixon

This is a great home that has been in our family for several years now. We have decided to share this wonderful experience with others, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Chad Dixon purchased this house in 2011

Why Chad Dixon chose Brainerd Lakes

This home is uniquely, and perfectly located between an award-winning Arnold Palmer designed golf course and one of the premier fishing and boating lakes in Minnesota. Nestled among some huge oaks and evergreens with a great view of the lake, it is walking distance to the clubhouse or the lake.

Our Christmas weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the lodge. It was very spacious and ideal for our family Christmas. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the family room was great overlooking the lake.

Great property for large groups!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was in a great location (close to the lake, town, shops, grocery stores, restaurants, etc) and was a perfect size for our family of 14. The game room and great rooms were great for gathering, lounging and taking in all the avtivities. Everyone had great fun with the pool table, Golden Tee game and the bonfire pit out back.

It came furnished with everything we would have needed (bedding, towels, dishes, silverware, laundry). The owners were very responsive through out the entire process answering questions before arrival and assisting during our stay. They even assisted with ordering the UFC pay per view event for us making for some happy campers in the cabin!

Minor updates could be made but nothing that would have ruined our vacation (grill not functioning, real curtains in the bedrooms/bathrooms, sporadic internet, light bulbs burnt out, loose handles). We enjoyed our stay and thank Chad and Michelle for their hospitality.

Good space

  • 3 of 5

We had a large group that stayed at the end of July. We LOVED the lake and Gooseberry Island. The home is lived in, but well able to accommodate a large group. Our biggest concern was the temperature. Chad controls it remotely, and I understand why, but we did cooking for our group and the house never truly cooled down. Chad and Michelle were very responsive to questions and great to work with.

Owner's Response: Hi Lynelle, thank you for taking the time to review. Unfortunately, July is a tricky month because it is so hot out, and the large windows overlooking the lake tend to drink in all of the sunlight keeping that room warmer than the rest of the house - especially with large groups of people. We had considered getting blinds and drapes, but felt it wasn't worth it. The great view from the living room overlooking Pelican lake is one of our favorite parts of the home. I am glad that you all had enjoyed your stay! Best wishes, Chad

Good location, great living room space, fun activities in the house

  • 4 of 5

The top reason for a four star rating is that most importantly to us, the owners were more than responsive to our needs during our stay. The house is not perfect - the kitchen could use more "stuff", especially for when the house is at capacity; the air conditioning does not adequately cool down the large, high-ceiling, living room space, and the grill ran out of gas as we were trying to use it. And, particular to our stay, there were some aspects that were annoying, but at the time, out of the control of the owners - the dryer was malfunctioning, and the necessary part was on its way to the house, and it rained so hard the awesome wall of pane windows overlooking the lake leaked significantly into the house. However, the owners arranged for the dryer to be fixed as soon as the part arrived, and as we were leaving, someone was coming in to take a look at the windows. Further, when we let the owners know the microwave was not working, they brought over a new one the same afternoon - all showing us the owners were attentive to the needs of the house and their guests. The great parts of the house were the large front room where we could all gather to hang out and play games, the pool table and golf arcade game that kept the kids occupied during the rain, and the fire pit where s'mores were made. The bedrooms and bathrooms were good, though real curtains in the bedrooms would be a good addition. It was a quiet setting, close to the golf course, the lake and the town. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

Great house. Larger than it looks.

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed this property very much. It has wonderful gathering spaces and is in a great location. It was also very clean upon arrival. The only reason for less than five stars involved several small things and a couple larger things, like the filtered water dispenser on the refrigerator was broken and many lights were burned out. This was especially a problem outside when we returned to the house at night. We would definitely rent this property again.

Ideal spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for bachelor party (15 men). The location is amazing. The property is conveniently location by Deacons Lodge and Breezy Point golf courses and Breezy Point resort. The drive to any and all locations is less than 5 miles. The property itself is in a private location or at least it feels private. There is not neighbors sitting right on top of you. There is plenty of yard space as we played a few different yard games.

The house is very spacious. Plenty of room to sleep, like I said more than enough room for 15 grown men to sleep and hangout. It rained one day while we were up there and we weren't sitting on top of each other. The house offers a pool table, golden tee and plenty of space upstairs to sit around play cards and storytelling. I would most definitely recommend this place to all. The house has some wear and tear but certainly nothing that would effect your experience. It was clean and communicating with Chad was very easy as he was extremely timely with his responses to our questions.

It is my belief the listing vastly undersells the common spaces in the house as well as the bedrooms and sleeping space. If you are looking for a location that offers Lake, Golf and "lake life" I recommend this spot.

Big Pelican Lake Information – The Minnesota Fishing Vacation Destination

Pelican Lake is one of Minnesota’s premier fishing lakes but in order to bring in your limit, you’re going to have to spend time learning the ropes and reefs. The bottom, fine for fish habitat, challenges the angler with an erratic mix of deep drops, sand bars, sunken islands and changeable weedlines. Your best bet is to hire a guide the first time out or watch other anglers to see where they congregate and record the spots for your own reference. Additionally, a depth finder and temperature gauge is almost a must. If you put it on the south end, find out where the line is at the ridge of the flats that extends immediately out into Jones Bay. That’s a good spot to begin. Pelican heats up later than many of the surrounding lakes so you won’t get much early action in the weed beds. Even when the water warms, this is a windy lake so it’s going to be a challenge to follow the weed lines. But that’s where you need to be. You may encounter two weed breaks, one at 10 to 15 feet and another at 20 to 25 feet. Either break is a good line to hunt. For early Bass, try the northeast bays  Mousseau and Nelson – fishing the edge of the reeds with plastics and crankbaits. In summer, go deep and find the cabbage weeds along the bars and points. Jig minnows and leeches at 30 feet or even deeper. For Northerns, follow much the same pattern as for Bass. Troll or drift the cabbage beds at 20 feet with sucker minnows and/or spinners. For Walleyes, bait a Lindy rig with a shiner or fathead and drift the southern side of Halverson Bay north of the rock line or go far south and trace the two holes off Lincoln’s Point and then cast the weedlines along the southern shore. A big challenge here is the clarity of the water. To avoid spooking the fish, some recommend electric motors, drifting, casting exclusively or waiting for nightfall for Walleyes. One strong advisory, check a good navigation map before setting out onto Pelican. Note the locations where rock formations are just below the surface. Preparation will make you visit to Pelican both safe and rewarding.
