My husband and I grew up in the Brainerd Lakes area and lived in various places in the state for 22 years. In 1997 we were able to move back and enjoy once again living in our hometown. We purchased the cabin in 2004 from Tim's folks, as we live next door to the property. We proceeded to remodel it to our liking and then decided we needed to rent it out and share the beauty of our property and area with others during the summer and fall months. We have really enjoyed getting to meet various people and have made some new friends from this experience. We would love to meet you as well! -Sandy and Tim

Sandy Lander purchased this cabin in 2004

The unique benefits of our property is that it is situated between 2 lakes and you have access and views to both of them. Also the privacy and peace and quiet is hard to find elsewhere unless you are situated in a really remote area. We are within 10 miles to fun little towns like Nisswa, Crosslake and Pequot Lakes.

This is a beautiful, relaxing cabin. We felt so comfortable here. Hubby got in some fishing & I spent the evenings sewing! We are working on the schedule so we can come back next September!

Great Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My husband and I chose Pinecone Cottage for our honeymoon. We could not have been any happier. The cabin was clean, cozy, and had everything we could have asked for. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and we also enjoyed the extended TV package. It was very private but Sandy and Tim were near enough to help with any issues that we might have had. They were very helpful and super responsive to any questions. We had a great time using the boat on the lake, which we mostly had to ourselves everyday. The fishing was great fun, we caught blue gill, crappie, large mouth bass, and pike. We even saw a pair of nesting loons. The weather was perfect and the one rainy day we had we used to explore the area including the Itasca State Park. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone that wanted a peaceful and relaxing getaway. Thank you to Sandy and Tim for sharing their little piece of heaven with us.

Pinecone Cottage

  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pinecone Cottage! The cabin was immaculate and had everything we needed. We have two small children (6 and 3) and they slept well on the daybed and trundle. The cabin has a full kitchen (with plenty of pots, pans, etc.) and a full bath with a tub, which is also nice for kids. We did spend an afternoon at Pelican Beach (just down the road), but most days the kids just enjoyed swimming at the cabin. There was a wonderful breeze that kept the cabin cool and we enjoyed listening to the loons at night. We didn't have time to explore the lake or do any fishing, but we saw plenty of sunnies and bass right by the dock. The cabin is about a 15 minute drive to Nisswa or Brainerd, so nicely situated. Sandy and Tim are wonderful to deal with, and you will probably not find a better deal in the Brainerd Lakes area. Barring any unforeseen scheduling conflicts, we are already planning a return stay next summer!!

My wife, granddaughter, and myself spent a week at this lovely cabin. We all had a wonderful time. The location of the cabin, being so close to the lake was great. We fished off the dock everyday and had two fish frys! We enjoyed the solitude of the cabin, but also liked the fact it was close to all the Brainerd area attractions. We would highly recomend this vacation spot and hope to make it a regular stop for us!

Relaxing or Fishing, This is the Place

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 10, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Thank you to our host Sandy and Tim who were both very kind, helpful and generous with their time to offer guidance and recommendations for places to see as well as things to do.

We enjoyed our week (7/30-8/6/2011) at the cottage with our two daughters, ages 16 and 21. My 16 year old has already announced that she wants two weeks next year.

The cottage is a lovely place surrounded with tall pines and on the shores of Markee Lake. The location is a very peaceful relaxing location with the occasional call of the loons.

The living room has about 14 screened in windows which allows nice ventilation and also allows the sounds of nature to visit you. A powerful ceiling fan also does a great job bouncing air down the gabled pine ceiling.

I found the room a great location for napping and searching the web. Tim had recently added a window air conditioner to the living room if temps warranted, but we were fine without it.

If you are into fishing, this lake offers the opportunity for large fish. We caught many pike and large bass. Our catch included a 32 inch Northern Pike. The fish were released back to the lake for you to catch on your visit. The week we were there, we found success using red crawfish colored Wigglewart crank bait made by Storm.

The cabin itself is well equipped. I like my internet and my TV at night and this cottage has high speed internet and DIRECTV. In the kitchen, it has the little extras that some rentals lack, such a pizza pans, cutters, etc. If you want a nightly fire, Tim has a covered reserve of aged firewood cut and stacked.

Sleeping: The bed in the bedroom was very comfy. I know the photo of the bedroom might make the room look cramped but actually, that is not the case. There is plenty of room on each side of the bed. In the living room, you will find a full sized day bed. Underneath that day bed is an equal sized flat rollout bed already made up. In addition, there are two couches, a rocker and a recline chair with footstool, in the living room for sitting and napping.

You cannot go wrong in selecting this cabin. I would recommend bringing some seat cushions for the boat, but other than that, you are set for a relaxing and wonderfully located vacation with this rental.

Thank you again Tim and Sandy.
