About Bill Johnson
Claire and Bill built their new lake home ten years ago and moved from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul to reside permanently on beautiful and pristine Kimble Lake. The home was designed in a way that accommodated the needs of their growing and athletic family. They have two married daughters who, after they and their husbands graduated from college, returned to the Twin Cities to make their homes. As Claire and Bill say, they are blessed to now have four talented grandchildren. As a result, more time is now spent in the Twin Cities watching and enjoying the many fun activities of their grandchildren. They now plan to spend more time in the cities and have decided to rent their lake cabin from time to time so others can enjoy the many amenities of their lake home. The way their lake home was designed makes it a perfect retreat for other families to enjoy "Up North" living during any of Minnesota's four seasons. Claire loves genealogy and her work as a masterful genealogy detective. Bill loves photography and learning more about his Native American heritage. Their interests are reflected in the design and decor of their lake home.
Why Bill Johnson chose Ideal
Claire and Bill love this special property known as "Shady Pines". It is not only located on a beautiful small chain of lakes, but is situated on 25 wooded acres which allow for nice walking trails with many photo opportunities. Walking through the woods makes one totally realize the beauty of our Creator's work. Shady Pines will leave renters many good memories of the fun and relaxation of being "Up North" in Minnesota's lake country.
What makes this Cabin unique
Renters will be able to enjoy the sunsets, sunrises and beautiful star formations from either the shoreline dock, from the unique backyard patio, from one of the property's many unique deck areas, or just sitting by a campfire next to the water enjoying delicious s'mores.

Beautiful Setting for Friends to Gather
Our group of six couples has enjoyed this beautiful home for the last two years. We are able to be together but have enough private space for each couple. The house is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Just sitting around the table looking out at the lake encourages laughter and good memories. The home's owners are friendly and so easy to work with.
Wonderful home for our 12 person card group
We enjoyed everything about our stay in this lovely 7 bedroom home. It was neat and clean and furnished with everything we could need...plenty of towels, refrigerator space, extra tp and lots of bathrooms. We stayed during January of 2018. We will come back!
Perfect stay over Christmas
We spent Christmas weekend at this beautiful house and had a great time. There were 3 couples and 3 (grown) kids in our group and we all felt very comfortable having our own bedroom suites. The kitchen, the dining room and the living room are perfectly set up for large groups to gather, to cook and enjoy meals together. The kids loved the library loft full of books and games and an amazing view. We really appreciated the architectural details and personal touches throughout the house. The owners even decorated it for Christmas for us! Thank you, Claire and Bill for sharing your home with us!
Clean, well-kept and fully stocked
A total of 14 brothers, sisters and spouses spent 4 nights at this beautiful property in September 2017. We were all impressed by how clean, organized and well-stocked it was. The dining room table was big enough for all of us to sit and eat together, and the lay out of the main floor allowed us to all hang out together. Bill and Claire were wonderful to work with. They were there when we arrived to show us around, quickly responded to a couple of texts that we sent them during our stay and came back to check in with us before we left on Sunday morning. We highly recommend this property to others.
Great place for family to come together! Plenty of room for all 4 families to settle in!
Loved everything about the place and our host Bill and Claire. Only disappointment was that the hot tub broke before we got there and we couldn't use that at night. We hunted, fished, golfed, mini-golfed and the kitchen was so well set up it made cooking for a large group a breeze. So glad to have a table big enough to seat us al too! Recommend!
Our week was absolutely wonderful. Our family enjoyed the lake,walks on trials,bonfires and hottub.
It was so relaxing on the dock in mornings having coffee and listening to the loons.The sunshining on the water. It was like a dream:)
Our cabin rental is located in the heart of Minnesota's lake country in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes area and just off the Paul Bunyan scenic roadway. The much used Paul Bunyan Trail for walkers and bikers is only 5 minutes away and access to the well known Whitefish chain of lakes is just across the road that leads to our cabin. The Whitefish and Breezy Point golf courses are within a 10 minute drive from our cabin as are many unique dining establishments. Our cabin is the prefect place to fully enjoy northern Minnesota's outdoor beauty.
