About the property

Upper South Long Lake

Don’t miss your opportunity to lounge at the Lazy Loon! Take advantage of an up North experience in our updated, single level, 3 bed/1 bath home with a spacious, open floor plan, and fully equipped kitchen to meet all your cooking needs. Upper South Long Lake is 800 acres of fun, located just 2 hours north of the Twin Cities and less than 10 min SE of Brainerd.

Enjoy full-sun throughout the day and into the evening with our south facing exposure, 100 ft of sandy shoreline, a small sandy beach for the kids, and of course, fishing from the dock will promise to be entertaining. The property’s level elevation, with no sloping or stairs to the lake, make this an easily accessible set up for all ages and abilities. When you are ready for a break from the sun, relax under the large shade trees and enjoy dinner from the deck , while embracing the stunning lake views, the loons, or even an occasional eagle or two! Of course, don’t miss out on evening smores and gatherings around the firepit.

We have you covered for cool, rainy days inside with a variety of board and card games, puzzles, and plenty of family friendly DVD’s. Or, just snuggle in with your favorite book/ magazine in the secluded 3 season porch.

We have taken great pride in this home in the short time we have owned it, and would only hope that the families that consider choosing to share our home will appreciate and respect it as well. We are looking for responsible adults and/or families only please. Absolutely no parties and no smoking allowed!

About Dee and Todd Wietgrefe

Our dream to become cabin owners became reality in October of 2013, after vacationing on this very lake! We are pleased to be able to share with you a part of our dream, in hopes that you too, may create unforgettable family memories.

Dee and Todd Wietgrefe purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Dee and Todd Wietgrefe chose Central

We have done a complete transformation of the interior in our short time of ownership. Everything from a new color scheme in nearly every room to creating a dining room area, and therefore opening the kitchen space, and adding coordinating appliances. We look forward to ongoing transformations as time elapses, but for now, please cozy in and relax.....let the work to us!

What makes this cabin unique

Whether lounging indoors or out, we are certain you won't be disappointed with the breathtaking views of the lake.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Loon. Everything we needed was provided and even had a garage area that we could stage all of our activities that we planned. The view was awesome, the entire side of the house is a window onto the lake and beach. The kids couldn't wait to get into the water. They loved the beach and chasing minnows. It was a very comfortable place to stay, everyone had their own room and even our twin boys had their own beds and some toys to keep them occupied during some rain one morning. The house is very spaceous and eveyrone could spread out and enjoy the day and evening. It is very quiet and relaxing and the neighbors were very friendly and helpful.

The location is nice as well, close to Brainerd for biking and the town and close to Mille Lacs for fishing and boating. The lake the cabin is on also has some great fishing. We caught walleyes within ear shot of the house and there were plenty of bass and panfish around. I wish I had some more time to really explore the lake as it has quite a bit of structure and opportunties.

Thanks agian and we look forward to visiting again soon!!

Chad, Dawn, Claire, Jackson and Reid.

Perfect Spot on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the Lazy Loon. It's right on the lake with a beautiful view and a large beach for kids to play. The interior of the cabin is absolutely beautiful. We had all the amenities we could have wished for- anything and everything for cooking meals, washer, dryer, a garage to park in, grill, fire pit, etc. The owners are so accommodating and easy to work with. We look forward our next stay at the Lazy Loon!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation at the Lazy Loon. Even though the weather wasn't good, the lake home is a great place to just hang out. This year we did dinner "theme" nights, each from a different country and knew we could pull off 5 course dinners because of the well appointed kitchen. It's just an all around great place to stay for families. Thanks again.
