Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the Brainerd Lakes area and lived in various places in the state for 22 years. In 1997 we were able to move back and enjoy once again living in our hometown. We purchased the cabin in 2004 from Tim's folks, as we live next door to the property. We proceeded to remodel it to our liking and then decided we needed to rent it out and share the beauty of our property and area with others during the summer and fall months. We have really enjoyed getting to meet various people and have made some new friends from this experience. We would love to meet you as well! -Sandy and Tim

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The unique benefits of our property is that it is situated between 2 lakes and you have access and views to both of them. Also the privacy and peace and quiet is hard to find elsewhere unless you are situated in a really remote area. We are within 10 miles to fun little towns like Nisswa, Crosslake and Pequot Lakes.
