'Up North' and Updated Vacation Home on Mule Lake that Won't Disappoint

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


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

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 purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda Steffen chose Northwest

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.

A wonderful week "Up North" at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine adults and one infant had a very enjoyable and comfortable week at Linda's vacation home. Even though we had read the description and viewed the pictures many times before arriving, when we walked in we were very impressed with the home. We fished and swam in the lake, played yard games, and in the evenings played games at the dining table. Everyone one in our family loved the house and lake and we hope to return next year.

Perfect for our family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful - views of the lake were spectacular. Steps to the lake were a workout for some of us, but the fishing was well worth it! Would definitely recommend this property to everyone and hope to go back ourselves!

Lovely vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great fit for our extended family of 11, including a toddler.

We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was well stocked with the equipment we needed, and there were extra pillows and blankets that came in handy.

Lots of outside space to play games, and decent fishing right from the dock. Maybe it gets busier when the weather is warmer, but the lake was pretty quiet when we were there.

We'd love to come again!

Beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 with ages from 6-63 had a great time. We had so much fun on the pontoon, swimming, barbecuing, yard games, and the fishing was amazing. We caught numerous small and large mouth bass right off of the dock. The fire pit was a nightly hang out to cap off our enjoyable sunny days with S' mores and good conversation. Your beautiful home met all of our expectations. We hope to come back next year!
