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 Pequot Lakes
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.

We really enjoyed our stay. Love the swimming beach and the dock. great fishing. The house is beautiful and worked great for our family.
Great for big families!
My wife and I, my four adult children and their spouses and my four grandchildren (ages 1 to 12) all visited Shady Pines in mid-July. The seven bedrooms, three with king beds, two with queen beds, one with 2 sets of bunk beds and one with 2 twin beds was perfect for us. From the many bathrooms - to the jacuzzi tub, the outdoor hot tub, the deck, the outdoor fire places and the dining table that sat 14 - it was all perfect for us. The home fit our family wonderfully. Bill and Claire were excellent hosts and they have thought of everything. We loved our stay there and everyone said that they would be very happy to visit again in the future. You won't be disappointed!
Beautiful place! The place was well furnished!
Our family had a great time, love the place. Shady Pines is a great family vacation! The cabin is top notch. Even on a rainy day, there is enough space for everyone, to either be together playing games or reading a book. The private beach is a wonderful place for kids to play in the sand and a great place to sit and watch the lake or take a nap. Thanks to great owners, Bill and Claire!
Perfect week at Shady Pines
Once again our four generation family spent a fabulous week at Shady Pines. The accommodations are amazing with plenty of room for all of us. The addition of the kayaks this year provided many hours of fun on the lake for everyone. We enjoyed our week so much and are always so sad to see our time come to an end. Thank you, Bill and Claire, for sharing your "little piece of Heaven" with our family.
Thank you for sharing your family photos of your special four generation week at our lake home, and for the the kind words in your review about your stay at Shady Pines.

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!
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.
