BRAINERD LAKES CABIN ON HORSESHOE LAKE NEAR GULL LAKE & NISSWA

Brainerd Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This is a classic Minnesota cabin. Fabulous beach. Crystal clear water. Bald eagles and herons. Tall pines. The kind of place you envision when you hear "northwoods cabin." And it is only two and a half hours from the Twin Cities.

We love this cabin - the hand-hewn logs, the fieldstone fireplace, the beams in the main room, the loft with its little windows. Built in 1946, it's a place with history and one that's been cared for through the years. We love the scale of the buildings relative to their surroundings - they rest on 2 acres of land and the cabin itself is respectfully situated near the lake.

The cabin can sleep up to 8 comfortably plus two more in sleeping bags. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. Upstairs in the open air loft, you will find 2 twin beds under one rafter and a queen futon snuggled under the other.

In the summer, one of our favorite spots is out on the screened porch. We like to listen to the peepers in early summer and later, the hum of the cicada. There’s a lovely cross breeze that moves the air about. And plenty of seating for late night chats with friends and family. For quieter moments, relax on the couch with a good book and let the ceiling fan keep you cool.

Outside, enjoy 275 feet of lake shore. There are no rocks, so kick off your shoes and walk carefree. The lake has gradual elevation into the water so you can be watchful, not worried, about your little ones on the beach. Children will love digging in the sand, fishing and jumping off the dock.

There is plenty of space in the yard for a game of Frisbee or soccer.

When you’re ready to venture further afield, head over to Mission Township Park and enjoy the short biking/walking trail or the charming park built under a canopy of pines. There’s a grocery store in Cross Lake, just 5 miles away, and a liquor store too.

Bring your bikes, pick up the Paul Bunyan trail at Lake Hubert and head into Nisswa for some summer fun: turtle races on Wednesday afternoons; lots of shops; Rainy Days bookstore, one of the finest independent bookstores you’ll ever enjoy; ice cream and coffee shops; breakfast, you name it. Enjoy a meal at one of many area restaurants or golf at one of the renowned nearby courses which, when combined, provide 450 holes waiting to be played.

At the cabin, there's only one rule: "Everybody does what they want." It's an easy rule to keep and ensures that each one of you has a good time!

This 1946 knotty pine and log home is simply up-north welcoming and home-like. It is immaculate and beautifully maintained, with a fully outfitted kitchen (very hard to find in other properties we have vacation-rented), lovely porch, children's play area with toys and books. in fact, there are interesting, entertaining books everywhere, even cookbooks! Many-paned French windows provide an epic view of the lake and at one end of the main room is a handsome stone fireplace. Not only is there firewood on the porch but a stack at the lakeside fire-pit thoughtfully shielded with a piece of birch bark. Thankfully, the decor is tasteful and minimal with NO Minnesota "moose-kitch." We decided last minute on a November getaway and were not in the least disappointed. We hiked the many trails in the area, cooked, read, explored the neighboring small towns and slept in. The last two mornings there were 6 Tundra swans on the lake just in front of the cabin. Sweet. We have used VRBO 6 previous times (Sanibel, Maui, Camden ME, Bayfield, WI, and twice in Brooklyn - the worst ever) and this is the most comfortable, super-clean, beautiful place we have had the pleasure of staying in. Thanks to the owner for their thoughtful attention to detail.

This is not so much a "cabin" as it is a personal vacation resort nestled on a large private lot. The location to Brainerd, other lakes, recreation, and golf is just minutes away and very easy to find. Its on a beautiful quiet large lake, the moment you get there you will realize all you hear is nature at its best and the lake waves lapping against the shore. The "cabin" is fully stocked with anything you could possibly need, plenty of linens, towels, kitchen and cooking stuff. You could literally just pack a small bag, bring a little food and be completely content. The cabin is immaculate, charming and well decorated, everyday you will find some hidden treasure somewhere in some little nook or cranny. Just a wonderful place to stay for any occasion and really any age. Very very comfortable. Very close to food stores, pubs, hardware, really anything. A beautiful large yard, firepit, huge sand beach, long huge dock, shallow nice clean water with lots of fish. The descriptions dont do justice to what the place is! Thank you Curt for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. This is a classic case of underpromise and over deliver! We will be back!

Perfect Weekend

We arrived with bags of groceries in hand and were welcomed by a fully stocked kitchen to cook our meal. The weekend weather was frigid but the cabin was warm and inviting. A nice fireplace inside and a well-placed fire pit outside were great for burning the birch logs we split in the yard. Our weekend at Ha-Ha-Lun-Ji was a pleasant escape from our busy lives and we will definitely consider staying again next year!

Wonderful Vacation

This is a beautiful property! We had 4 adults and 4 kids - and we had a wonderful time. We did lots of fishing and caught plenty of fish right from the dock. We also made fast friends with the neighbors, and were soon fishing from their dock too. Everything was easy to use and easy to keep tidy, so we could enjoy time outside. Campfires were special, we saw the "neighborhood eagle" flying around, and rented a boat for a day so we could all enjoy boating, tubing and skiing. The lake was lovely and quiet. The house was perfect for us. We'd love to come back!

Our winter paradise! Sledding, xc skiing, snow forts and ice skating were all right outside the front door. The perfect break from the city, a chance to embrace winter and each other ;) Our children loved the games and books at the cabin and the novelty of it all allowed my husband and I enjoy a glass of wine together!
