About Paula Schwartz

Getawayupnorth is our second property in the Brainerd Lakes area. Our first cabin was purchased 10 years ago and we LOVE this area. Our kids have been raised 'at the cabin' every weekend and we can't say enough of the memories and strong family bonds created. The intent of the Merrifield Lake home is that it will be our permanent home in years to come. In the meantime we wish to share our beautiful lake home with others.

Paula Schwartz purchased this cabin in 2013

This lake home has all the comforts of home yet offering all the uniqueness of a 'get away up north' in Minnesota.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. The house is very comfortable, with entertainment options for any kind of weather. The lake is crystal clear, with a gently sloped sandy bottom. The additional option for the pontoon makes lounging at the lake even more fun.

Great place! Fun, clean, quiet, and all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t tell you how pleased we were with this lake home rental! It’s actually better than the pictures represent. Everything was spotless and so well maintained. It was so nice to have everything there waiting for you including paper towels and laundry detergent. Even the yard is nicely landscaped. Not something you see in other rentals. The lake is very clear and of course we had a blast with pontoon rides and water sports. We did rent a jet ski from Dave’s Sportland Rental and had a pleasant experience there as well. There are so many other great qualities, including the conscientious owners, but will wrap it up in one word - EXCELLENT! Thanks Paula and Thomas for providing a most wonderful week of vacation for our family.

Beautiful, comfortable lake home.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 families of 6 just got back from a great week at this wonderful lake home. We enjoyed fishing, seeing wildlife and just relaxing. This home is very well kept and had plenty of room for the 6 of us. It has a nice deck off of the living area with a fire pit for making s'mores or just hanging out by in the evening. There is a nice, sturdy dock to secure your boat to and a bench to sit on and enjoy watching the loons swim by. the owners were extremely nice and easy to work with. We highly recommend this lake home!

A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Pulling off Highway 3 at the “yellow bike” and driving through the beautiful tree lined private drive we knew we arrived someplace special. There is no doubt we were “up north”. The house is great, and exceeded our expectations. Our little dog Samantha loved to be included and welcomed. The pride and love Paula and Thomas have put into the place shines in so many ways. The landscaping and yards are beautiful. Although we did have to make difficult decisions…did we want to watch the stunning sunsets from the large upper deck? Or the cozy screen porch? Or the dock?...Did we want to say home for dinner and cookout on the gas grill? Or the Weber? or did we want to venture out to one of the great local restaurants. We simplified and tried them all…with great success. Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven with us!
