Bring a good book, your boat, or swim gear, then come in and relax on the front porch.

We provide the wood, so you can roast marshmellows for smores!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: My husband and I retired from Minneapolis, MN and are living our dream full time in the Brainerd Lakes Area. We built our home in such a way where we could have guests stay with private quarters and enjoy 'up north' Minnesota with all the comforts of home. Come enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the lake without all the other people from resorts. You will be back!

              Why the Owner Chose Brainerd:
              I am from the area originally, and we have always had a cabin on Crow Wing Lake for the last 24 years. In 2004 we built our dream home, which could accommodate guests.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              A great Lodge type home just steps from the shore. Perfect elevation and a great place to fish off the dock or go swimming. Then come in and enjoy a gourmet full private kitchen with granite counter tops, and all the dishes/pots/pans provided. There are 3 different sitting areas outside. A 40 foot covered porch, a 700 sq ft patio by the lake, and a side deck facing the lake. You will find a cozy spot to relax for sure!
