My husband and I retired from Minneapolis, MN and are living our dream full time in the Brainerd Lakes Area. We built our home in such a way where we could have guests stay with private quarters and enjoy 'up north' Minnesota with all the comforts of home. Come enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the lake without all the other people from resorts. You will be back!

Erin purchased this house in 2004

I am from the area originally, and we have always had a cabin on Crow Wing Lake for the last 24 years. In 2004 we built our dream home, which could accommodate guests.

A great Lodge type home just steps from the shore. Perfect elevation and a great place to fish off the dock or go swimming. Then come in and enjoy a gourmet full private kitchen with granite counter tops, and all the dishes/pots/pans provided. There are 3 different sitting areas outside. A 40 foot covered porch, a 700 sq ft patio by the lake, and a side deck facing the lake. You will find a cozy spot to relax for sure!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience of doing VRBO, and it was all and more that we expected. Joan and I talked so many times prior to our visit. She was most helpful and we became fast buddies. With babies and all there were 10 of us. It is hard to find a place big enough for all of us, without being on top of each other. The most important things to me, is room and cleanliness, they exceed all of that and more. They were very helpful and friendly. Joan and her wonderful treats, Howards surprise for the kids, the great afghans we got to choose from, I could just go on and on. We all had a great time. They made sure we had everything we needed, Howard made the fires, everything was top notch. I hope to come back. Howard and Joan we all thank you for great memories in your home. Thank you so much, Sincerely, Dwight and Nancy Kottke

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Joan and Howard's lake house the first week of June. What a beautiful home they have! it is over 6000sq. Ft. and we had total access to the entire upstairs and property. Although they live in the home you would never know it. you feel as though you own the entire place. We only saw them when we needed them for assistance. Restaurant info, grocery shopping advice, where to buy bait, where to golf and the like. All advice was spot on too by the way. 75 degrees, slight breeze and no BUGS in northern Minnesota are you kidding! We has the lake to ourselves every day even on the weekends with never more than two other boats on the water. Caught one fish after another right off their dock and nice size on the lake. Very peaceful and quiet and Howard makes a great fire for you every night to watch the sunset by. The beds are super comfy and Joan has set up your kitchen and grilling station to include everything you will ever need. They even have two parking spots in the garage with remotes for the overhead door for your use. They think of and provide everything you will ever need to enjoy your stay. Added bonus? Joan is an accomplished baker and has fresh bars and cookies when you arrive! Make sure you take home the recipes! Overall, my wife and I have had great experiences with VRBO listings over the last ten years whether it's skiing in Colorado or staying in Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin but this is by far our best experience to date. Check them out. You will not find a better value or experience. I can guarantee you that.

DEFINITLY BETTER THE A HOTEL.

  • 5 of 5
My husband was working in the area and we stayed with Joan and Howard for 3 months this winter. We would highly recommend this home to anyone considering this rental and looking for a beautiful, quiet and relaxing place to stay. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and all of the usual kitchen supplies were there for cooking our own meals. If we needed anything all we had to do was ask. Having a washer and dryer included for our use was definitly a plus. Joan and Howard are very nice, friendly people who will do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Joan is a very good cook and we enjoyed many delicious treats during our stay. Even came home with several of her recipes. We would recommend this rental property to family and friends and hope to stay there again in the future.

FANTASTIC FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic! I met my family here for our annual family vacation...There was enough room for the 7 of us. The house was beautiful and was better than we expected...with so many of us having a kitchen is a must and this one had more than we could have asked for. Joan and Howard were wonderful, from the delicious brownies and bars, to building the fire and the fishing we couldn't have had a better time.

ENJOYED OUR STAY AT THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
OMG! We had so much fun here at Joan and Howard's Lake house. This house is so beautiful in and out from the bedroom to the outdoors. This house has everything just like home. If we needed anything, Joan had it. The smiles and the friendly hospitality we received was welcomed from out first day to our last day. The kitchens (yes two) was fun to cook in. My mom really enjoyed her birthday here at your home and we plan to return again. The grass surrounding this property was beautiful and the landscaping was picture perfect. The pictures on this site does not do this place justice! I would recommend this place to anyone who like nice things. We had a party of 7 ranging from 40 to 70 years old and everybody gave this place a two thumbs up. Again, thank you from Kim, Yuran, Betty, Yolanda, Isabelle and Ann from Los Angeles CA, Denver Colorado and San Diego Ca. July 16 -23, 2011
