Wonderful place for a lake vacation!

The best vacation home we've rented in the Brainerd area - the place is set up with three separate living areas so everyone gets their own space when they want it, plus two levels of decking and a little screen porch, all elevated looking out over the lake. No mosquitos - go figure! Visiting some friends on nearby Crooked Lake, we got eaten alive, so the skeeters were active, just not at our place - maybe because it's elevated from the lake. Two living rooms on two levels, both with nice, comfortable furniture - not the usual beat-up castoffs from the 70s you find in many fishing cabins. Just a super nice place to chill out. Lake Margaret IS peaceful, even on the weekends, and the house is located in a very quiet area with large houses and lots of trees and room between for privacy. Boat rentals are available nearby, and we also enjoying parking our boat in a slip for cocktails and lunch at Bar Harbor just around the corner. The Cowboy was a great little bar & grill just a short walk or drive, and another place just down the road - I think it was called Sherwood Tavern. Some other close by places weren't open quite yet. It was fun to tour all through the lake chain, which is quite extensive, everyone we met was classic MN friendly & nice, and we caught a lot of fish with live bait on Lake Margaret - particularly off our own dock with the Twins game on the radio. We really enjoyed this house with only one small suggestion that a dishwasher would add to the convenience.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your time on Lake Margaret. I wish I could say that the mosquitoes simply don't like our location; however, we have a professional service that sprays our properties every three weeks so our guests do not get eaten alive. We are planning to do some little upgrades this fall, perhaps a dishwasher will make that list as well.
