Brainerd house description

SUMMER: During summer season OUR LAKE HOME IS A WEEKLY RENTAL ONLY-- Saturday to Saturday stay for a maximum of 12 guests (Adults and children). A peaceful retreat for multi-generational families or small groups to spend quality time together.
FALL & WINTER: During fall and winter season we have a 3 night minimum stay.

A beautiful, AIR CONDITIONED, CHALET LAKE HOME awaits your visit to the Brainerd Lakes Area. It is situated near Aitkin, MN on Sullivan Lake just over 2 hours North of the Twin Cities. The home has over 1,900 finished square feet on three levels, a 22' vaulted ceiling of knotty pine, and three stories of windows overlooking the large deck and lake. Our lake home retreat is unlike any other…on PRIVATE land with no cabins, campers, neighbors, or noise to invade your precious vacation.

The home sleeps 12 in beds with 2 private bedrooms and a dormitory-style loft. With the amenities of home-- a washer and dryer, bedding and towels, a kitchen fully stocked with cookware and dishes, a microwave and 2 TV’s and Blue Ray players.

This 100-acre private lake has NO PUBLIS ACCESS and is deep with up to 42' of water and 2 miles of natural shoreline. Fishing is great entertainment for “big and little” kids alike……primarily pan fish, bass and northern pike. A newer 20' pontoon boat, a 14' fishing boat with electric trolling motor and 2 new kayaks are yours to use at no extra charge (this includes the gas)! Coast Guard approved life vests are provided in all sizes. While there is no sandy beach, a wonderful public, sandy swimming beach is a short drive away on Pelican Lake with clear, shallow water for blocks out into the lake. We do have a swimming platform anchored in 20' of water out from the dock and 2 kiddie pools for toddlers.

Yard games include bocce ball,croquet, ladder golf, jarts and horseshoes. There are board games, puzzles, and 2 Blue Ray players for rainy days. Bring along your favorite DVD's. Enjoy the surrounding woods and yard, bask in the sun or read on the large deck overlooking the lake, relax on the dock bench, or sun and swim from the 8'X8' swimming platform anchored in 20' of water. Golf at one of the many courses around, or spend an evening at the Mille Lacs Casino just 30 minutes away. Shopping, restaurants and other recreation are close bye in the Brainerd Lakes Area. A Weber charcoal grill will cook whatever you wish. An evening campfire at the fire pit is a must. You will have a vacation your family will remember for years to come.

Let us be your Family Vacation Destination!

Sincerely,

Marilyn Paquette, Manager

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About: I very much enjoy my lakehome but as a business owner I am busy and use it very little. Instead of leaving it vacant most of the time I wanted to make it available to you to have an alternative to the mundane 'same old thing' resort style vacation. Stay at my home year round as I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Thank You, Dave

                  Why Brainerd:
                  My father purchased the land in 1956. He was enamored by the property's beauty, the tremendous fishing, and the privacy. In 1996 I tore down the old cabin and built the three level Ski Chalet-Style Lake Home with an open loft to facilitate the 'togetherness' that a 'cabin' is supposed to convey. Since I am so busy with work and I use the place only a couple weeks per year, I decided to share it with you!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I enjoy all aspects of the place including peace and quiet, all the wildlife in the woods surrounding the house, great fishing, swimming, the large deck overlooking the lake, all of it. It's also the rarity to have such a large private lot on such a nice lake with no neighbors. It makes me glad I purchased those additional lots adjacent to the property. To me, there is no replacement for seclusion and privacy and this place really delivers.
