Overview

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!!

Quiet, deceptively large and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful quiet family getaway. Our family of five was able to stay there with tons of space to spare. The location is nestled into the woods, facing a quiet river. Would be a great for a small family reunion, or a fishing trip with your buddies. Great restaurants and local shops are just a few minuets away. I would recommend this rental for any one looking for a quite getaway.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Leaves were starting to change colors. The view was very nice and relaxing. There was lots of wildlife. We could hear owls and loons at night. We canoed. The wild rice was at it's peak so there were lots of birds hanging around. The grill on the deck was large and propane was provided. There were plenty of condiments. For 3 couples it was very affordlable. Love the fireplace.

Great space for a weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

Four of us stayed at the property for a girls' weekend. Got there just in time the first night to catch a beautiful sunset over the river with the leaves changing. The fire pit is at a bit of an incline but manageable. There was a bit of mustiness and it could have been cleaned a bit better (some dust and cobwebs) but all in all it definitely met our needs. Lots of room in the fridge/freezer and adequate space to cook. The dining room space was great for playing games, there was comfortable furniture in the living room to hang out in and visit, and we enjoyed some time on the picnic table on the patio when it wasn't raining. Will certainly consider this place again when planning another weekend away with friends or family. Thanks!

Overall our stay was average

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived the basement of the house is very musty smelling to the point when I returned home our clothes smelt of it. With anyone with allergies this is not the optimal circumstance.

There was dirty dishes in the dishwasher and there was dishes with mold on them. We had to hand wash and then run them through the dishwasher.

The one TV did not have any sound.

The front storm door handle fell of the first time the door closed. We fixed that on our own.

The house is very dated to the 70's.

The upstairs bathroom only has a tub with no shower.

It did however provide the space we needed for the 4 couples who stayed.

It was nice to have some of the basic condiments provided as well as basic linens and towels.

The pillows were comfortable.
