About Todd and Kim Dunlap

Our family purchased this property in June of 1975 as a summer lake cabin. 2016 brings 40+ years at the lake. Our family and friends enjoy it much of the year but there are pockets of time that you can enjoy it too. You will find remnants of Dad's love of flowers with everything from spring tulips to tiger lily's and sunflowers to enjoy for fresh cut flowers at the table. Our own home is just 10 minutes away. Lots of memories here from the past and many to be made in the future. We can remember when the railroad used to go along the back of the property and blow its horn (now the Paul Bunyan trail).

Why Todd and Kim Dunlap chose Nisswa

Come and enjoy this park like setting. Lake Hubert is known to be crystal clear and is home to famous Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert. Maybe it will be the bright red Cardinal or the hummingbird at the feeder, the loons by the dock or a walk down the Paul Bunyan trail to the old Train Depot that you will fall in love with. You will want to return again in the future. Everyone that has stayed has mentioned the great beach and how much they enjoyed their stay. The water is deep enough for your boat and the property does NOT sit right on a busy road.

What makes this cottage unique

Four seasons of fun and relaxation, a cup of coffee on a brisk morning or a cold libation on a steamy afternoon sitting on the front deck area or on the dock, floating on a tube, laying in the sun on the large sand beach, listening to the pop of a fire in the fire pit, roasting marshmallows, taking a nap while the boys are golfing or fishing or while the gals are uptown shopping.

Clean and accommodating!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were super hospitable. We arrived and they checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and were available by phone if we had any questions. The house was super clean, cozy and the view of the lake was so beautiful!

Owner's Response: Fall at the lake is a great time of year. Less bugs, good fishing, the lakes area is at a slower pace. Hope to see you again.

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful location. It is super pretty and private, yet you do not feel isolated. The grass and flowers are very nice, huge beach, nice sand, nice dock. We enjoyed playing in the sand, having a dock to tie our boat up, and a lot of space to relax. There is a camp fire pit on the beach and you can watch the sunset and make smores. Todd has a shed you can use things out of - there were sand toys, boat bumpers, a few tubes, and more lawn chairs which we appreciated and used! The inside of the cabin is taken care of nicely, not updated in decor but certainly everything you need. The cable TV was nice when you have a child along to put on the Disney Channel while you make supper. :) We used the Paul Bunyon trail several times running through the back of the property. 2 miles / 15 minute bike into Nisswa for pizza and ice cream and shops - very fun. The lake has good fishing, husband caught a few walleyes and some bass, daughter and I caught many sun fish off the dock. We really enjoyed our time. The only thing we thought was a bit unique or odd is this rental doesn't include towels. That is part of the agreement you sign, well we forgot about it in the months that passed between booking and our arrival. So we had to wash beach towels during our stay to use as shower towels and dry hands with paper towels we brought. I take the responsibility for forgetting, and it was not a big deal, but just something to remember if you do book here that you need to bring. Overall I would recommend it, I think you will love this place and enjoy the peace, quiet and views from every part of this cabin. Truly something everyone can enjoy.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We have kept some towels in the linen closet just in case people run short or forget. We will leave more as back up in the future. We have a few people that travel across the country to stay and usually request towels so they don't have to haul all the way here. Easy fix. We were so excited your daughter was pumped about all the sand on the beach. Thanks for taking god care of things while your were on vacation at Lake Hubert.

Very nice cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was very nice and the grounds were beautiful and well kept. The cabin itself is a little older but very up to date. The owners were great to work with. Would definitely recommend.

Very cute and clean lake home. The beds are very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the privacy and park like setting with the beautiful flower gardens. The kitchen has new dishes, new silverware and newer pot and pans. The kitchen had everything we needed. Todd also surprised us with fresh flowers from the garden and a welcome gift for s'mores. We had a very nice time on Lake Hubert. I would highly recommend this lake home.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a "HOT" few days when you were here. Getting away from the normal everyday and spending it at the lake can't be beat especially in the heat! Hope to see you again. We will try to save a few fish for your husband for next time. Thanks again.

Great family adventure!

  • 4 of 5

Great place and accommodations were great! My granddaughter loved the bike trail and I used it for walking that was just next to the property. The lake was great and especially my son and his wife enjoyed fishing and we all enjoyed going for boat rides as a family. Nisswa was great for going for ice cream and shopping. Great place!
