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

Our family rented out Paula's beautiful lake home on Lake Edward last week. If you are looking for a lake home to rent out 2hrs away from the twin cities, this is the place you want to rent. The house is beautiful with lots of room for you family. Our dogs loved the place with all of the room to run around. Fishing was outstanding and we rented out Paula's pontoon which had lots of room for the whole family. Lots of shopping only a few miles away. Don't miss out on a chance to rent this lake home for your family.. Thanks again Paula!!!!
Great place! Fun, clean, quiet, and all the amenities!
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.
Best VRBO I have rented yet! First year my family had no desire to leave for any reason. Everything you could imagine was provided. I mean EVERYTHING. Paula and Thomas were perfect to work with and quick to respond. I'm thinking I have found my "forever rental" (as long as they will have my family!). Have already booked for next year. It is truly a home away from home. Amazing!! Thank you Paula and Thomas
Summer family trip
