About Sandy Lander
My husband and I grew up in the Brainerd Lakes area and lived in a couple of different places in the state for 22 years. In 1997 we were able to move back and enjoy once again living in our hometown. We purchased the cabin in 2004 from Tim's folks, as we live next door to the property. We proceeded to remodel it to our liking and then decided we needed to rent it out and share the beauty of our property and area with others during the summer and fall months. We have really enjoyed getting to meet various people and have made some new friends from this experience. We would love to meet you as well! -Sandy and Tim

What makes this Cabin unique
The unique benefits of our property is that it is situated between 2 lakes and you have access and views to both of them. Also the privacy and peace and quiet is hard to find elsewhere unless you are situated in a really remote area. We are within 10 miles to fun little towns like Nisswa, Crosslake and Pequot Lakes.

Another beautiful visit
This is our third stay at the Pine Cone Cottage. We love the location on two small and quiet lakes. We like to take out the canoe to just enjoy the water, wind, and sun. The kitchen is completely stocked with cooking supplies. All you need to bring is your own food. We have also enjoyed being close enough to Nisswa, Brainerd, and Baxter that we can grab a bite to eat, grocery shop, or find a tourist activity. We will definitely be back.
This cottage is cozy, with great lake views from each window. We spent our time going for walks, sitting around the fire, and listening for the loons. The owners are right next door if you need anything and are wonderful people--great place!
It was a joy to have you back at our cabin! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope you can make it again in the near future!!
The prefect lake getaway!
Sandy and Tim were the best host! Took us out on the pontoon, let us barrow fishing rods, provided yummy lemonade, the cabin was stocked perfectly and even the bananas had a little basket to sit in! We had friends come over during the day and there was so much to do. From the paddle boat to fishing off the dock. So many great memories! Highly recommend! Best place to stay to get away and relax! We hope to come back and make more memories! thank you!
We loved hosting these friends from out of state! Hoping one day this sweet family can move back to the area!❤️
Just completed a week at the Pine Cone cottage which proved to be a home run in terms of everything we were looking for..........privacy, quietness, abundance of fish, quality/clean cottage, gracious hosts, high speed internet, etc. The best testament to this rental is that fact that, before we left, we booked a week for next year. Sandy And Tim are superb!!!
Stop looking and book this Cottage!!!
Beautiful cottage, outstanding views!! Highly recommend!! Sandy and Tim have thought of everything have done an outstanding job with their Pine Cone Cottage. A perfect get-away for any one looking for peace and quiet, nature, fishing, antique shopping and REST. Bald Eagles!! There are beautiful Bald Eagles and we were fortunate enough to see their babies as well!! We have been traveling to Minnesota every summer for several years now and this has been, by far, our favorite!!
Awe, thanks so much Cindy, for your great review! We try to show improvements every year and want our guests to feel comfortable, relaxed and even spoiled:). Would love having you again anytime!

Exactly what we were looking for!
My wife and I chose the Pine Cone Cottage for our 15th Anniversary get away. We could not have picked a better place. The cottage is super clean and cozy. The fishing was great. Having high speed internet and all the tv channels you could ask for was a very nice bonus for the rainy time. Five stars is not enough to show how great this amazing stay was. Tim and Sandy are the most AMAZING and friendly hosts. We plan on seeing them again in the future. Thank you both for everything and all the EXTRA help and making us feel at home and like we were friends and not just renters. You two are GREAT!
Del and Teresa were wonderful to host and we thought of them more like friends than guests!! We will look forward to them returning in the future and I'm sure our dog Chloe does too!🍗 😊
