About the property

This home sleeps 17 people in beds not pullouts or futons. 3 kings, 11 twins.

Beautiful home on Round Lake, part of the Gull Lake Chain of Lakes.

As soon as you walk into the home you are greeted with a floor to ceiling view of the beautiful lake. The large living room has a cozy gas fireplace, comfortable furniture and opens into the sun room, the perfect little escape for an afternoon nap or read. The open floor plan is ideal for large family gatherings. The dining room features a custom built table with seating for ten and is open to the beautifully updated kitchen with stainless appliances, seating for four at the island, and plenty of natural light. There is also a 1/2 bath on this floor. Also on the first floor is one of three master bedrooms. This room has a king bed and a private bathroom.

Going up the grand staircase you will find the other two master bedrooms. Both have a king bed and private bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms are on the bottom level. This is the perfect retreat for all of the kids to enjoy. One bedroom has two extra long twins and a set of twin bunk beds, one has two twins, and the large sixth bedroom has two twin bunk beds and 1 twin bed, sleeping eleven in total on this floor. These bedrooms will all share a 3/4 bathroom on this level. Another amazing aspect of this home is the large game room on the bottom level. Everyone will enjoy evenings around the game table, watching movies and relaxing in the cozy den! The lower level has huge windows with views of the lake, so you don’t feel like you are in a basement.

The backyard is accessible through the sun room on the main level! When you walk outside you are greeted with a lush lawn, fifty feet of private sandy beach, trees for shade, a fire pit, grill and an amazing 100 foot private dock extending into the clear shallow water of Round Lake.

About Jeff Boettcher

I grew up in Ramsey MN and graduated from Anoka High School in 1986. We own a small plumbing business "Nowthen Plumbing". We have always loved the Brainerd Lakes area and started coming on the weekends during the summer of 2011. We have been looking for the perfect rental for some time and we felt this was it.

Jeff Boettcher purchased this house in 2016

Why Jeff Boettcher chose Brainerd

This home is located is on the Gull Lake chain of lakes. You can boat right from the dock to a number of bars and restaurants. There is a nice sandy beach with a gradual slope. This home also sleeps 17 people in beds not on couches or pullouts. Where else can you stay and have three master suites?

What makes this house unique

The house was designed and built by Nor-Son builders in 2002 for grandparents that wanted their adult children and grand children to have their own bedrooms. Having three bedrooms with king sized beds and each with their own attached bathroom is very unique.

Awesome home.

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest home we have ever stayed at. Everything is in top notch condition. The owners are so nice to work with. They have so much for the children, movies, games, kayaks for kids and adults, ping pong and many beach toys for adults & kids. This was our 2nd year at this home and hope to come back for many more years. The beach and lake is perfect for children. A fun time was had by all family members.

It has great space for all to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Home is very well equipped all needs! We brought things we thought we needed and they were already there. Plenty of kayaks for kids and adults! The sandy beach and the shallow water pasted the dock was perfect for the little kids. We would definitely like to go back.

2nd annual summer family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Once again the entire family gathered to enjoy a lake vacation. The home was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed gourmet meals the kids were happy to prepare in the wonderful kitchen. Everyone enjoyed the water and sand (the grandkids loved the toys). Jeff keeps the swim area pretty clean of zebra mussels, but if you like to walk out farther swim shoes are recommended. We will return next year!

Wonderful Vacation Spot.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, perfect lake and beach for kids, swimming, and water sports. Kitchen very well stocked with loads of pans, utensils, silverware, dishes, and glasses (best ever out of several other rental properties over last 12 years). Two sets of washers and dryers came in very handy with 15 people over a week (gets a best rating as well). Lots of outdoor chairs. Nice beach campfire location. Will definitely go back. Minor recommended changes would be to expand driveway and add an ice maker in garage as vacationers need lots of parking and ice.

Beautiful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family reunion with 11 people. Everyone had their own space and the gathering places were spacious and comfortable. Everything you can think of was available in the kitchen. Loved having an evening fire outside. We highly recommend it!

What a wonderful place to creat memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently spent a few days at the house creating memories. Thank you Jeff for putting us up in such a great place. The sandy beach area was excellent for the kids, and the kayaks and paddle board provided hours of fun. The house is beautifully decorated and everyone had their own bedroom, showers and space. The kitchen was well supplied and very spacious. We spent a lot of evening time around the fire pit and watching the beautiful sunsets and making smores with the kids. Had a great time!
