About the property

5 Bedroom/2 Bath Lakefront Home Sleeps 13

From the moment you arrive, you will not be disappointed. Step into the recently remodeled one-level home and you will see lots of up-north appeal. The large master suite has a vaulted cedar ceiling and a gas stone fireplace, and offers amazing lake views with french doors leading to the deck. Laying in the king sized bed, view the stars in the sky at night and the sunrise in the early morning. There is a master bathroom that has tile floor and shower, and granite topped double sinks. This room has satellite TV. Bedroom 2 is a large 'bunk room' and has a king sized log bed, and a log bunk with full size on bottom and twin on top, also has a TV for watching movies or playing games . Bedroom 3 has a king sized bed, bedroom 4 has a queen sized bed, and Bedroom 5 has a full sized bed. The pine plank flooring flows throughout the open kitchen-dining and living room area. Through the living room french doors is a large 3 season lakeside porch that has a newer couch with a chaise and pull out bed. The porch leads to the large deck, where we enjoy the shade and lake breezes. The large lakeside yard is perfect for yard games; boccie ball and bean back toss are a couple of our family favorites.

The clear lake and great swimming area is forgiving of the elevation (approx. 36 steps to the lake). The elevation also allows for the amazing view and the gentle breezes on hot summer days.

About Linda Steffen, Licensed MN Real Estate Broker

Russ and I call Brainerd our home, but our true love is heading to the cabin on weekends and letting our worries and stress melt away as we take the scenic hour drive north on the windy road to Longville, between the lakes and through the pines. We cherish the time spent with family and friends at the cabin.

Linda Steffen, Licensed MN Real Estate Broker purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda Steffen, Licensed MN Real Estate Broker chose Longville

As a lifelong resident of Brainerd, known as the heart of lakes area, I discovered a whole new love for lake country when we purchased our Longville lake home in 2011. The tranquility of Mule Lake, known for its' clarity and the thousands of feet of state-owned shoreline, is ideal for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating. Huge white pines line the lakeshore and attract many eagles and loons. We enjoy the small community and the many popular year round events that it hosts.

What makes this house unique

Surrounded by lakes and forest, Longville has been a popular vacation destination for many years. Located in North Central Minnesota, the area provides some of the best fishing, boating, water sports, hiking and biking in the summer and fall. The famous Longville Turtle Races have been enjoyed by all ages for many years. Every Wednesday afternoon from June through August, streams of cars descend on the little town of Longville on the shores of Girl Lake. Family-friendly activities are happening all year round in Longville.

Wonderful Thanksgiving 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (6 adults - 6 kids) stayed at this property and there was more than enough room to be very comfortable. While it was too cold to be outside exploring there were plenty of fun board games to keep all of us entertained. The little ones kept saying "we love our new cabin home". Thank you Linda!

Great spot for the kids and grandkids!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this beautiful lake home. It is well maintained, clean and had plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 4 kids. The lot is particularly beautiful, with lots of maples, oaks and even some white pines. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. We actually appreciated the fact that there was no WiFi, as we spent more quality time together. The grand-kids loved the play structure!
