Family week at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of August, 2016 at this property with our family! The home worked perfect for our daughter and her young children. We enjoyed the deck and grassy area up by the cabin and also spent a lot of time down by the lake and enjoyed the great beach and spacious yard by the water. There were 7 of us and we all felt like there was plenty of room! Great location on the lake with beautiful views. Access to Gull Lake was awesome as we pontooned (rented) daily around the many lakes. Karen is a great hostess....she was able to quickly remedy a few minor issues and was very attentive and prompt!

Storm showed owner's true colors

  • 1 of 5

Two days into our stay a very bad storm hit, with tornado force winds. There was terrible damage in the neighborhood, with hundreds of trees down (one unfortunately fell on my SUV, totaling it). We spent much of Monday starting yard cleanup, which had debris everywhere, along with other things such as recovering their paddle boat which had blown away. Late Monday evening the owner called and asked that we leave, due to the power and water being out indefinitely (and the septic system requires electricity to function), promising an appropriate refund. We understood and agreed to leave, which we did early Tuesday afternoon (after trees blocking the boat ramp were cleared, to get our boat out).

The problem came when it was time to discuss a refund. We figured we would only be charged up until the point of the storm (two days), as after that point we did not have power, water, or usable toilets (not exactly what you are paying for), and due to how we helped out. Instead Karen believed we owed four days since “it was our choice to stay until Tuesday.” We were surprised and ended up negotiating to three days. This was not a positive experience, but we accepted it.

Then it got weird. The refund check arrived in the mail only refunded back to four days, and came with a letter from Karen saying we left her property in poor shape, which included untrue accusations such as that we dragged her picnic table across the deck and scratched their new staining job (including an indignant remark that how dare we drag it rather than pick it up and move it!). We responded that this was unfair, pointed out the ridiculousness of some of the accusations (that obviously the tornado force winds had pushed the picnic table and it was out of line to assume that was us), informing her of how we pitched in to help, and asking her to honor the agreed upon refund. Karen responded that she would not budget, reiterating her accusations and going back to her line that it was our choice to stay until Tuesday. In the end, we were effectively charged for some of her storm damage. I’m still in shock that someone would treat her customers this way, with so little understanding or recognition of the facts and circumstances.

In short, most likely if you stay here things will go according to plan and you should have a good time. But if things don’t go according to plan, beware the owner that will focus on maximizing her own interests, with no consideration for her customer.

Owner's Response: THERE IS SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG WHEN A RENTER CAN LEAVE YOUR PROPERTY A DIRTY MESS AND INSIST THAT YOU DON'T CHARGE THEM FOR STAYING THERE. Yes, there was a terrible storm in Brainerd! We tried our very best to be as accommodating as possible during this time because of the circumstances. We asked the renters to leave midday on Monday when we found out that the power would not be restored until Friday. However, they stayed until late Tuesday afternoon. The note that the renters’ son is referring to was sent along with the rental refund and the damage deposit refund checks. The note simply said that we were disappointed with the condition they left our property in and why, and that we were charging for the 4 nights that they stayed (Friday-Monday), instead of the 3 nights earlier (prior to seeing the condition they left the house in) discussed. ***It took us an additional 3 hours to clean (the house) because they left the property very dirty and disrespected.*** The renters’ son (not the contract renter) sent a email blasting me on how dare we say that they left the property in poor condition (he did admit to 1 of the items mentioned in the note) and insisted that we refund them an additional night stay and apologize. AND IF WE DIDN’T, he would write a bad review on VRBO and give us a 1 star rating. We replied, “This was obviously a new situation an unchartered territory for everyone, we are willing to reimburse your parents for the one night. However, it doesn’t change the condition our property was left in. It appears as if you had been there for a couple weeks, we are not apologizing for sending the note expressing disappointment and why.” ***WE ARE VERY THANKFUL FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL FAMILIES THAT HAVE RENTED OUR PROPERTY FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS (40-50% of which are year-after-year returning renters) THAT TREAT OUR PROPERTY WITH RESPECT. IT IS TRULY A PLEASURE TO SHARE OUR VACATION PROPERTY WITH THEM! AND WE HOPE TO CONTINUE TO RENT TO MANY NEW WONDERFUL FAMILIES.***

We really enjoyed our vacation at this lake home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent the week at this home and everything was perfect. We fished, snorkeled and made a sand castle on the beach. We were able to make jewelry and play games at the tables in the house and read our books and relax in the beautiful yard. Shopping was great too in both Nisswa and Brainard. We would recommend this home to any family vacationer.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home, perfect for large families. We had 11 kids and adults total and the space was perfect! The owner was very kind and helpful. The nice thing was that this was their home rather than a rental property and you could tell. The beach, lake and property was also gorgeous! The only downfall was that there was only one fridge which made things kind of tight! Overall a wonderful experience!!
