Property type house

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

A wonderful place to get a way from it all. Quiet area on the Mississippi back water. The fishing is some of the best in the area. Canoeing or kayaking among the islands is a favorite activity. Birdwatchers will love the variety of birds as we are on a major migratory corridor with nesting grounds for multiple types of birds . Just 7 miles outside of Brainerd, 15 minutes to Nisswa and 20 Minutes to Crosslake puts this home right in the middle of all the Brainerd Lakes activities. There are many great restaurants and shops nearby. The golf courses at the different resorts are only 20 mins away. Watch the sunset from the deck or the dock over the river in the evening. Outdoor amenities include a grill, a dock, fire pit and a canoe. Indoor amenities include 2 queen size beds, 1 full and 2 twin beds, linens, furnished kitchen and 2 gas fireplaces. All bedrooms have a view of the water. Great place to bring snowmobiles. Access to hundreds of miles of trails. Now is the time to come check out the birds!!! April and May we get a huge variety of migrating birds. Bring your binoculars!!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 1 week. It was wonderful. Very peaceful with great views! The wildlife was amazing to see. It was nice being able to prepare our own meals in the kitchen and the grill provided. Plenty of room for everyone. We had a great family time and would definitely stay here again.

Relaxing location with unique river views

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful view of the river, from the house itself and from the small landing a few yards up and across the road. Being on a point of land that gave us two very different views of the Mississippi. Since it wasn't a boat landing, we didn't have to deal with a lot of traffic. Very nice!

The house and deck were very nice areas to hang out and relax. There was a fire pit down near the river shore that we used both nights. The property drops off from the upper yard to the river, so it wasn't an ideal space for sitting around the fire. But obviously, we made a way. The fire ring is in good shape, a nice size, and there was firewood provided.

The house had plenty of space - full size kitchen and dining. We enjoyed being able cook our own meals, both on stovetop and on the grill on the deck. Everything worked and we had most of the utensils and dish ware we needed.

The only drawback was that the house had not been cleaned very thoroughly before our stay. Nothing was filthy, but it lacked a good solid dusting and vacuuming. The corners and ceiling fixtures were more cob-webby than I would have liked.

We were near enough to to Brainerd and Nisswa to do all we wanted to without too much driving, but not so close that we had to deal with traffic sounds or problems.

Had a great getaway with old friends.

  • 5 of 5

Used it for an annual guys trip. Plenty of room for all of us. Great feel to the cabin. Seemed pretty private at the end of the road. Had a great time. Owners were great, as in we communicated just enough, not nosey, very accomodating. Only downside was the cooking pots and pans. We were cooking for a lot of people, and had to be creative with prep (which is kinda part of beeing at a cabin). Definately not a swimming location, but had fun fishing in the canoe. Overall had a wonderful experience would definately use it again.
