A beautiful 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 ski chalet-style 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 campers, neighbors, or noise to invade your precious vacation.
The home sleeps a maximum of 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 public 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 with bass and northern pike. INCLUDED AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE ARE: A newer 20' PONTOON BOAT (including gas), a 14' FISHING BOAT with electric trolling motor and 2 KAYAKS for hours of enjoyment on the water. Remember to pack your favorite lures and poles, and don’t forget your beach towels! Life vests are provided. 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.
Yard games include bocce ball, ladder golf, horseshoes and a small swimming pool for toddlers. There are board games and 2 Blue Ray players for rainy days. 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 in 25' of water. Golf at one of the many courses around, or spend an evening at the Casino just 30 minutes away. Shopping, restaurants and other recreation are close by in the Brainerd Lakes Area. A Weber grill will cook whatever you wish, but remember your charcoal and fluid! An evening campfire at the lakeside fire pit is a must.
Enjoy some of the best winter sports our lake home has to offer. Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing are all popular with many trails in the area. Fall is also a great time to visit us with still warm days and crisp autumn nights. Minnesota's fall colors are second to none.
Whatever the season, you will have a vacation your family will remember for years to come.

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 Aitkin, MN, USA:
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 Chalet:
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.
