About Bret & Melissa

We have 2 children and enjoy getting away and experiencing what the area has to offer.

Bret & Melissa purchased this house in 2014

Why Bret & Melissa chose Minnesota

Less than 2 hours from the Twin Cities made this a great location for us. After purchasing the house we completely remodeled it to bring it up to date and make it more enjoyable.

What makes this house unique

We love the large flat yard and the sandy shoreline. There is plenty of room for activities.... not your typical cramped cabin lot. Up north cabin feel, but close to town for shopping & activities. Plenty to do for everybody nearby.

Found our perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we have been looking for! My friends and I try to have a girls weekend 2-3 times a year. We each have our own little projects we work on together and this home is set up perfectly for us. The large open design keeps us all together no matter what we are working on. The kitchen, dining room, and the living room offer ample space for all of us!

Relaxing GetAway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed 2 nights here to get a break, and this place was just what we needed! Beautiful views, comfortable furniture, fantastic layout, tastefully decorated, and immaculately clean. Just what the doctor ordered for a weekend of rest and relaxation.

Clean, comfortable, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a weekend getaway to visit family in the Baxter area. The location was perfect, which was why we were so happy to find this cabin! When we arrived we were SO pleased to find that the home was fully stocked with everything we needed- including the kitchen. We had a fantastic weekend ice fishing, eating yummy food, playing games, and watching movies! Thank you for providing such a fantastic place for us to get away to!

Perfect for four to six adults or four adults and two to six kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bret & Melissa's home. Everything was clean and well cared for. The kitchen layout was fantastic and the updates throughout the home are smart and purposeful. There are games everywhere you look, which is great for unfortunate weather days. We just loved everything about the place. It looks like eventually there will be an additional bedroom and bathroom downstairs, which we were happy to see. We are getting married in Brainerd next spring and we are thrilled to be enthusiastically recommending this house to our Guests looking to stay in a VRBO style accommodation rather than a hotel.

Thank you Bret and Melissa, we had such a great time!

NIce stay for group of five

  • 5 of 5

We came to coach a volleyball tournament--two coaches, signifigant others and a five-year old. The place is nicely renovated and tastefully decorated. We used the fire pit, where the owner charges just $5 for wood. There was every necessary utensil in the kitchen, including a Keurig and even some spices (we made fajitas). It also boasted a beautiful lake view. The home is in a neighborhood, and has off street parking for four cars (no garage). If I had to complain about one thing, it would be the abundance of beetles that seemed to creep in the house and hang out on the ceiling near the lights. Nothing the owner could do to change this, but I suppose if you do not like bugs, you are not renting "cabins" or rather a place like this, which I would call a lake home. Thanks for the great stay--would love to come back and use the pontoon!

Owner's Response: Thanks Alesha for the review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and had fun at the volleyball tournament. We will look into the beetle issue, thanks for letting us know. Our apologizes, this time of year is difficult. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Also, happy you enjoyed the fire pit. Always fun to chat and enjoy time by it. We look forward to you booking in the future.

Great place for a lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Brainerd and wanted to have a place to house people for a mini-family reunion in early October 2016. This lake house worked wonderfully. The owners Bret and Melissa were always responsive and available for any questions, although there weren't any we had. We rented their pontoon boat during our stay and it gave us fun times on White Sand Lake. The house was immaculate. The location is ideal - just a few minutes from anything you'd want or need in the Brainerd/Baxter area. I'd highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thanks Stuart for the nice review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay! The pontoon is a great way to check out the lake and relax on the water. We enjoy being so close to everything, but still having the cabin feel. We hope you will come back in the future!
