About the Property
3 Bedroom/ 2 Bathroom, Pet Friendly Property w/ 540 ft of Lakefront.
Robison Point sits on the very tip of Ovig's Point, in Merrifield Bay, on North Long Lake (a lake comparable to the popular Gull Lake). The cabin sits just 60 ft from shore, on a 0.67 acre lot, with approximately 540 ft of lakefront (275 ft of which is usable). There is abundant wildlife surrounding the cabin, including: several species of songbirds, loons, osprey, eagles, ducks, geese, red fox, raccoon, white-tail deer, fire flies, frogs, etc. Stay for a week, and you will likely see and/or hear all of them.
The cabin has two bedrooms and one bathroom on the main floor, and another bedroom and bathroom in the loft. We have enough beds to accommodate up to 9 people - more if your guests are willing to sleep on air mattresses. There is a queen bed in the front bedroom, an (extra-long) twin-over-queen bunk bed in the rear bedroom, and a twin-over-twin bunk bed and (extra long) full-over-twin trundle bed in the loft. All three bedrooms have ceiling fans. The upstairs bedroom has a small TV (w/ cable). We provide all linens and towels. The main floor bathroom has a large shower, and the upstairs bathroom has a free-standing bathtub. We also have a Pack-N-Play you are welcome to use.
The kitchen, living room, and dining room are all located in one large space under a vaulted pine ceiling on the main floor. There is a kitchen island with four stools, and a large dinner table with 8 chairs. We can provide extra tables and chairs, e.g. for scrapbookers and quilters, if you just let us know what you need. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric stove/oven, Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler, microwave, toaster, blender, two large refrigerators, a Keurig coffee machine, and all of the eating and cooking utensils you could ever need. The living room has a large leather couch and a matching loveseat. There is a large LCD TV with cable and a Blu-ray player. The cabin also comes with wi-fi access, if you would like to stream video, play online games, or just check your e-mail.
Outside, there is a wood deck with a large picnic table and an umbrella, along with a bench that doubles as a patio box. A gas grill is provided for you use (we provide the propane). We also have a fire pit, with plenty of free firewood provided. There are several deck chairs and four Adirondack chairs for people to drag around the front yard to sit wherever they please.
We have two docks. One is meant for swimming, and the other for fishing. The first dock is located directly in front of the cabin, and it sits in about 3 ft of water on a hard-sand bottom. It has steps on one end for easy access to the shallow water, and a ladder on the other end so children may repeatedly jump off the dock to their little hearts' content. The fishing dock sits on the very tip of the point, right on the edge of a drop off that falls from 2 ft down to about 30 ft. The fishing off of this dock is so good, boats frequently anchor just in front of it to fish.
Robison Point is 1.2 mi down a backroad, which makes for peaceful early-morning walks or jogs. For bikers, the Paul Bunyan State Trail is just 4.2 mi away, and you can ride it all the way into Nisswa (6.5 mi) or Brainerd (9.1 mi). If you're bringing your boat, the nearest boat launch is conveniently located just across Merrifield Bay, in the town of Merrifield. It is about 4.8 mi away by car, but only 1.3 mi away by boat. It is a modern launch with a concrete ramp and plenty of parking.
Our property would be a perfect match for most groups, especially families with young children, scrapbookers, quilters, and dog owners. However, the property would not work well for large groups looking for a place to party into the wee hours of the morning (many of our neighbors are families with young children, and late-night noise would not be tolerated well).
Just let us know, and we will assist with any boat, jet-ski, bike, and/or car rentals. We can also help you get to and from the airport.

The property is centrally located in the Brainerd Lakes Area. We are just 13 mi from Brainerd/Baxter where you'll find several of the major retailers and restaurants, including: Costco, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Olive Garden, Applebee's, Perkins, McDonald's, Culver's, Wendy's, Gander Mountain, Best Buy, and even 3 quilt shops. We are 11 mi from Nisswa, 14 mi from Breezy Point, 19 mi from Crosslake, and just 8 mi from Brainerd International Raceway (BIR). The Paul Bunyan Land Amusement Park is less than 20 mi away. The ultra-clear Crosby Mine Pits are just 26.1 mi away, and there is a dive shop in Brainerd where you may rent gear and get tanks filled. Also, the Mississippi River headwaters is less than 2hrs away, which would make a nice day trip, if you would like to be able to say you walked barefoot across the 'mighty' Mississippi. The Paul Bunyan State Trail is 4.2 mi away by road, and only 1.5 mi by ice.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Mark, Josey and their two daughters live in the Twin Cities. Josey grew up in the Chicago Area, and Mark in Minneapolis. Mark's family has owned lakefront property in the Brainerd Lakes Area since the 1950's. Mark spent most of his childhood summers on Gull Lake, where he grew to love the area and its unique culture.
Why the Owner Chose Brainerd, MN, USA:
When this property became available, Mark and Josey just knew they had to own it. The property was so unique, and North Long so similar to Gull, Mark and Josey couldn't have imagined a better spot for a vacation home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The property is far enough out of town you feel like you're in the Northwoods, but close enough that you may enjoy all of the conveniences of the city whenever you wish. You don't have to pack food for a week, because you can easily purchase everything in town after you arrive. If the weather is great, you can stay on the property all week and never leave. If the weather doesn't cooperate, you can go shopping at the mall or see a movie. The property offers the best of both worlds.
