About Julie Tripp

We have enjoyed the cabin for 25 years and our children grew up spending their summers here. This property is extra special to us and we want to share the cabin up-north experience with you.

Julie Tripp purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Julie Tripp chose Lake Shore

There's no place like the Brainerd lakes for vacation fun! The Gull Lake chain is the premier Minnesota Up-North vacation spot. We love it! The fishing is excellent. There are restaurants on the lake for dining out and Gull Lake Marina is just across the bay with gas docks and boat rentals.

What makes this cabin unique

Our peninsula where we spend time swimming, fishing, boating, tubing and grilling our dinners and roasting marshmallows is spectacular. It's a level elevation with a large area for playing volleyball, pitching a tent, or soaking up the sun while the kids swim and go down the water slide. We have shared our place with many friends and family over the years. We've made many memories while at the cabin, and we know that you will too!

Great Cabin With Great Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. It offered all the needs we were looking for; spacious area for all the guests, great waterfront, and easy access to many amenities! I would recommend this cabin to anyone and I will likely look into using it again in the future!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We went up to the cabin with a bunch of old college friends. It was the perfect cabin for us. Very nice and spacious and had the cabin up north feel to it. The yard was great with a lot of space and perfect fire pit area down next to the lake with a lot of sitting. Only a mile away from some fun bars we checked out, Zorbaz and Cowboys. Also very close to gas station and grocery store which was very nice. Would love to come back again in the summer to use the lake but it was a perfect weekend.

Terrific Red Cabin on Gull Lake

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I had our families and three dogs together at this fabulous property for a full week. Great fishing, superb location and one of the prettiest private points on Gull. Julie, the owner was super nice and totally available if we had any questions or requests. There was plenty of space and yet felt very cozy and warm. Everyone had a great time and we want to come back!

Awesome Cabin & Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at your cabin! The cabin is great! All the amenities that you would ever need plus the great north woods decorations, plenty of room, and a pool table to keep everyone entertained. The area by the lake is perfect to enjoy a bonfire or go swimming or enjoy the views of the boaters passing by. The swimming area is very nice and weed free and the kids really enjoyed the slide and the parents enjoyed the nice bench on the dock. The hill is a bit of a hike, but well worth it for the large flat area by the lake. We caught (and released so they are still there waiting for you!) 50+ blue gills, sunfish, perch, rock bass, and large mouth bass right off the docks. The location makes things even better. A very quick drive to Zorbas, Bar Harbor, or into Nisswa. The location at the intersection of Upper Gull, Gull, and Lake Margaret makes for awesome and quick access to all the parts of the lake via boat (including the marina for gas, Zorbas or Bar Harbor for some food & drinks). The location on the channel was great during the stormy days, Gull lake was very rough but it was nice and calm by the cabin allowing for continued fishing and boating. The owners were excellent to work with and very responsive.

Gull Lake Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well equipped and comfortable cabin. The grandkids enjoyed time by the lake swimming. Beaching our boat on the sand bar on Gull Lake was a lot of fun. We appreciated the use of the boat lift at the cabin and the attention by the owners to our questions and effort to make our stay fun and welcoming. Great eating places especially Zorbaz and fun times in Nisswa at the turtle races and shopping. There were other fun activities for kids and adults in the area including boating between lakes.

My wife and I spent our 10 yr anniversary at the cabin. The cabin was perfect, a very warm cabin feeling. It is tucked back into a perfect part of the lake with access to the entire Gull chain. Perfect yard and lake shore fore the family to enjoy even though we left our 2 kids at home. The owners were very professional and handled the rental perfectly from beginning to end. Truly a perfect place that led us to a perfect anniversary. Thanks for the memories, we will rent again without question.

Very close to Schaefer's Grocery Store (full service grocery) and Brainerd International Raceway. Pirate's Cove miniature Golf and Billy Bones Go-cart racing are a must!

Hop in the boat and drive to Zorbaz for pizza or Bar Harbor for a delicious dinner. Gull Lake has many restaurants and marinas on the water for your convenience.
