                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Getawayupnorth is our second property in the Brainerd Lakes area. Our first cabin was purchased 10 years ago and we LOVE this area. Our kids have been raised 'at the cabin' every weekend and we can't say enough of the memories and strong family bonds created. The intent of the Merrifield Lake home is that it will be our permanent home in years to come. In the meantime we wish to share our beautiful lake home with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Merrifield:
                  This lake home has all the comforts of home yet offering all the uniqueness of a 'get away up north' in Minnesota.
