Lovely home on Gull Lake

  • 5 of 5

2 couples (aged 65+) stayed here the week of July 4. The home is very well maintained and had everything we needed and more. We had a little trouble figuring out how to work the large tv in the living room so we just borrowed the remote from the room with the smaller tv and it worked fine. We love Nisswa and routinely come every year or 2 to the area but we may try to come earlier in the year next time to avoid the abundance of mosquitoes!! To the owner's credit, we only saw the can of Deep Woods Off in the cupboard when we were cleaning up and ready to leave. (The bug spray we brought with us didn't stop those pests at all so make sure you bring some with deet!!) We enjoyed the visits (outside) from both neighbor's friendly dogs. We'd gladly stay here again.

Gullwood Shores is a lovely Holiday get away! Our party of 11, mostly adults and teenagers, had great space in this home. The lake is phenomenal....the boat lift and dock are awesome. The locale of home near Baxter, Nisswa, Brainerd offer alot of fun for rain days or sun fried days....The stairs to the water offer built in exercise, which on a vacation with liquor and food delights is definitely needed:) Even my 75 year old Father did those stairs. Hot water, good shower pressure, garbage disposal, garage, decent beds, wood pile ready to go for bon fires, sound proof sunroom, the list goes on for +++...The only addendums to note are: basement bedroom bed is super firm. Would recommend bringing 3" eggshell if you need some "soft". Also, parking the boat & trailer in the driveway is a bit of work. It can be done, just be prepared. Gullwood Shores is a great VRBO. We plan to book again. Owner is super responsive too.

It was a great place for a get together as a girls weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay... the only thing that was a bit of a bummer was the dock was not in and there were no stairs to get down to the lake! Great place for a get away with friends though!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Catie and for deciding to stay at our property. I know there are a lot of alternatives out there. The dock probably still isn't in as the company is way behind because of the late ice out. This was communicated prior to your arrival. Also, the stairs from the landing to the lake are removable and those go in with the dock. If you decide to come back, you'll notice that the stairs/landing and dock are all brand new in 2018.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

The road is a bit sketchy (single lane), and if you are bringing several cars the parking is tight.

The house was awesome though

Owner's Response: Thanks Travis for your comments and your business. During the winter months it is important for guests to be aware that Minnesota winters are unpredictable, therefore there can be some snow cover.

After-Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to hang out and relax for a few day after lots of busyness. Way too cold (below 0) to spend much time outdoors but we brought a portable ice house and cross country skis so managed a little time on the lake. With 8 adults and a 2-year old we had plenty of room to play indoors, room to cook, watch movies, ping pong contests and board games. We'd love to visit again in the summer sometime. Owner very helpful and responsive.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! 4 couples had more than enough room. We had fun playing ping pong and discovering the snow mobile trail off the lake just north of the property. Views are fabulous and home is cozy and clean.
