About Jenn and Tony
We're Tony and Jenn - a native East Coaster (Tony) and Minnesotan (Jenn) who are currently rearing our family of four children in southern California. Jenn grew up in Illinois but often visited Gull Lake; the place where her mom's family spent summers. In early 2017, we fell in love with this beautiful property and saw the potential in the large home that had undergone several renovations through the years. We were confident that we could transform the home into our dream home and make it something truly special for not only our family of six but also our extended families and friends. Over the winter of 2017/2018 we underwent an extensive renovation and fell in love the with house all over again. The home was transformed into a bright, modern and comfortable gathering place. As Californians, we aren't able to enjoy our home as often as we'd like, so we decided to share it with others - the way we used to before we purchased our home.
Jenn and Tony purchased this House in 2017

Beautiful home and beautiful views
We absolutely loved this home. There was so much space for our whole family to enjoy! The sunsets were amazing each night! The kitchen had everything that you could possibly need!
Great family reunion spot
My extended family spent last week at Jenn & Tony's home in Nisswa. We had a wonderful visit and thoroughly enjoyed the home. The house has been recently renovated and looks like an HGTV success story--a truly gorgeous home, especially the kitchen! We really appreciated the kids playroom and kids accessories (high chair, crib, utensils, etc).
I think the downside for us was the lack of a large, flat backyard. The hill made it a little hard for outdoor games but our little ones were on the beach and in the water the entire week. The fire pit could be bigger/smoother as well. However, the long dock made it possible to tie up two boats which was awesome.
The home is enormous but unfortunately due to some local city laws you cannot have more than 12 people stay in the home. The rules are quite strict on this point.
If you're looking for a beautiful home close to everything Nisswa/Gull Lake has to offer, I think this home is a great choice for you.
Thank you Liz for your review and feedback. Yes, we're constrained by the city to the number of times and number of travelers to whom we can rent, and I know you had a very large group. The 4'-10' slope from the house to the lakefront is considered a "gentle elevation" but maybe the photos don't completely reflect that...I'll review the description and photos to ensure that we're accurately representing the property. Thanks again for choosing to visit us.
Perfect fit for our family gathering
Our family of 8 adults and 6 little kids all enjoyed our stay at this spacious, nicely decorated home. It has a clean, crisp, uncluttered ambiance. All the amenities we needed were there and then some. Having 2 dishwashers was unexpected but proved to be very handy.
The shallow water and beach play area were perfect for our little ones.
We’ve rented quite a few vacation properties over the years, this one was our favorite ! We hope to be back next summer.
Thank you Ann for your wonderful review! We really enjoyed having you and your family.
Beauty and serenity on Gull Lake
The house was even better than expected! It was very comfortable, beautifully designed and newly refinished with thoughtful details throughout that made a big home feel cozy and warm. We loved the decor and style. The convenient location was an added bonus. We felt like we were at a secluded retreat, yet we were 10 minutes from adorable downtown Nisswa and great restaurants on the lake. Jenn and Tony were great hosts and quick to respond to our questions. We will definitely return and highly recommend!
Thank you Nancy! We loved welcoming you and your family. Hope to have you back some time soon.
