                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Max and Kim Rathman, we built this home from our own design in 2000 and this is our first year of renting it out. We live in the Twin Cities and work in financial services.

                  Why the Owner Chose Merrifield:
                  We build this home because we travelled from Nebraska every summer to vacation in the Brainerd Lakes area. We loved the area so much, we moved to MN and build our dream cabin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We love to entertain, so this home is uniquely designed to house children and adults with plenty of room to get out of each other's hair.
