Brainerd cabin description

Escape to this classic “Northwoods” cabin with knotty pine interior and stone fireplace. Enjoy views of Upper South Long Lake from your living room, dining areas, sun room and new cedar lakeside deck. A level 45’ stroll brings you to a private beach with gentle elevation and a large cedar dock. This is a wonderful vacation spot for families with children! Towering pines and the call of loons provide a true “Up-North” experience. South-facing cabin and lakeshore receive wonderful southerly breezes and mature trees provide plenty of shade. Relax to the sound of waves lapping against the shore. Bring your boat to enjoy water sports and fishing although you will be able to catch fish right off the dock! Lakeside picnic table for pleasant, shaded dining. After a day spent on the water, relax around the campfire and roast some marshmallows. We even provide the firewood!

Enjoy morning coffee in the sunroom with wicker seating and views of the lake. There is a dining area in the kitchen with windows that over look the lake and also an eating area in the living room. A large stone fireplace, knotty pine walls and the vaulted ceiling provide a comfortable setting to relax in the evening. Each of the 2 bedrooms have pine floors, a double bed, and ceiling fan as well as ample closet and dresser space. An updated bath features tub with tiled shower. (Shower has a 6 foot ceiling). For your convenience, laundry facilities are provided and there is also a retractable clothes line for hanging damp towels and swim suits.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Dan and Roxanne work and live in Colorado. We met while living in the Brainerd area and always have felt at home at the lake. Our trips to the cabin are often the inspiration for many of the photographs your see on the walls. Roxanne runs an art studio in Colorado.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brainerd:
                  The Brainerd lakes area has always been a very comfortable setting for recreation, the night life or just being pulled in an inner tube behind the boat. We enjoy unwinding, entertaining friends and family in a relaxing environment.
