Charming "Up North" Lake Cabin For A Family's Enjoyment During All Four Seasons
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.

All as described. Our family enjoyed our stay at this lovely property.
Perfect location, very clean lake, wonderfull amenities!
Bill and Claire are gracious hosts with their large cabin on Kimble Lake, MN. Our visit with multiple families and eight children age 12 and under was outstanding! Thank you for all of the wonderful memories!
Gorgeous property with so much to do!
We enjoyed our stay here so much. We had 9 adults and 6 children. There was plenty of space inside and out. We enjoyed swimming paddle boating and kayaking in the lake, fishing off the dock and just enjoying each other around the fire pit. When we were spending time indoors the house layout was so nice in that we could have different groups doing different things at the same time. Bill and Claire were gracious and accommodating hosts.
Our family of three generations thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bill and Claire’s beautiful home! The house was extremely clean and well stocked. There is nothing we needed that we couldn’t find. Both the kids and adults loved the kayaks and paddle boat as well as the diving raft in the lake. The sandy beach area was great for those that liked to play in the sand. Fishing off the pier was a highlight for the kids as they caught some nice sized rock bass several days in a row. Bill and Claire are extremely nice people, just a phone call or text away, and make you feel right at home! We hope to be back sometime in the future!
Our family of 13 had plenty of room at the cabin, lots of bedrooms, bathrooms, different areas for people to go. There was plenty of toys to keep the kids happy. We didn't know the cabin would be on a hill with lots of steps down to the lake. Also, when sitting on the decks, there were so many trees you couldn't see the lake so had to always go down the steps to watch the kids in the lake. We appreciated being able to rent the pontoon and having the lake toys and life jackets for the kids. We had a great weeks and would go back if it weren't already rented next summer.
Kimble Lake Kabin
Our entire family enjoys going to Kimble Lake!
This was our third vacation there. Each year there is something new like the kayaks that kids and adults both had fun with.
Our hosts Bill and Claire are so accommodating and everything we might need is there! Plus the woods the flowers! Beautiful natural setting!
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.
