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).

Todd and Kim Dunlap purchased this cottage in 1975

Why Todd and Kim Dunlap chose Gull Lake

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.

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.

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.

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!

Great vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying at this beautiful, clean, well maintained cabin! A great destination for us, from South Georgia, to enjoy the cooler summer weather. Our family of four enjoyed everything this location had to offer...boating, swimming, fishing, biking, grilling, and sitting by the fire pit at night roasting s'mores. Knowing such thoughtful owners take pride in the maintenance on the inside as well as outside of this cabin shows...and is appreciated!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your second year at the lake. To travel that far you for a vacation at the lake tells us you must enjoy Lake Hubert and all the great things the Nisswa lakes area brings. The picture of the big bass you sent was awesome. Such a big smile your son had in the picture. Thanks for returning and hope to see you again. Let us know. We are already getting 2017 responses.
