LAKE HOME ON UPPER SOUTH LONG LAKE

Brainerd Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

Lovely lake home on an 800 acre lake with fishing for Bass, Walleye, Crappies and pan fish. Nice swimming, although expect some weeds in July and August. Enjoy beautiful sunsets. Relax in a hammock reading a book. Grill your catch of the day on a nice shaded deck. Look for shooting stars and satellites around the campfire at night. Snuggle up in a comfy chair in a knotty pine living room to chat, read or take a delightful nap. Even let the chipmunks eat out of your hand on the deck.

Three bedrooms with queen size beds. There is a single sleeper sofa in the living room. Room for 2-3 sleeping bags and air mattresses on the porch. This lake home was built in 1985 so it is modern construction.

No pets allowed.

Guests are asked remove sheets from beds and put in pillow cases to be washed.

Paul fell in love with this lot in 1979. Over the next six years he lovingly built this cabin. It is a beautiful place to relax, read, enjoy a sunset, watch the birds, feed the chipmunks and enjoy being with family and friends.

Paul Schalekamp purchased this cabin in 1985

This is a lake home that is in a quiet area and away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet only 10 minutes from the Brainerd shopping area. The cabin is on a level lot under the pines, yet has an open play area between the lake and cabin so you can easily watch the children or grandchildren play.

Perfect Hosts

  • 5 of 5
Paul & Deb are absolutely wonderful hosts. They will try very hard to make you feel welcome and accomodated. On the day we arrived, Paul was there personally to greet us. He made every effort to acquaint us with the property and points of interest in Brainerd and the surrounding area. The home itself is lovely and the panoramic view of the lake from the patio and dining room area is simply amazing. The well-manicured lawn is perfectly level out to the lake and the dock is solid and very safe to walk, sit, or fish on. We enjoyed spending time on the deck just relaxing and feeding the chipmunks - who, by the way, seem to be very friendly and accustomed to guests eager to feed them. Although we did not catch a whole lot of fish the week were we there, we did have enough for one nice fish fry and a few more to take home. Sitting around the campfire at night, roasting marshmallows, and star-gazing was a highlight. We also enjoyed visiting one of the area's golf courses as well as mini golf in Brainerd. We would recommed this place to anyone for a fun, relaxing vacation.

Lovely home!

  • 4 of 5
Pros: Well-appointed and charming home. Spacious bedrooms, nice open layout and very clean. The porch was great for our 3-year-old in the mornings, we just closed the french doors so he wouldn't disturb those still sleeping. We loved the large yard, deck and fire pit. Plenty of seating available indoors and out. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and the laundry was great (especially loved the clothes line for drying). Lots of storage for clothing in the bedrooms, as well. There was a sandbar nearby that we were able to canoe and/or bike to. Lots to do in the Brainerd area.

Cons: We do not have a boat and renting one on this lake proved difficult (wished the owner would have offered boat rental for an additional fee). We ended up renting a pontoon on Gull Lake for an afternoon. There wasn't much for a beach - very tiny little sandy spot for our son to play. No wi-fi and sometimes even just getting a decent phone signal was difficult.

Overall, we had a wonderful, relaxing time on the lake! I would recommend this rental.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here and had a blast! With three kids in high school or college we found so much to do. When we arrived Paul and Deb made us feel like we were old family friends and made it very comfortable. The cabin was perfect! You could roast marshmallows and hot dogs by the fire, stay inside after a long day, or go out to the famous Rafferty's Pizza in Brainered. We'd done it all! Fishing was great! My daughter caught a Northern right off the dock! Somehow spent more time doing that than tubing and skiing which is very unusual. This vacation was most definitively one to remember. Would go back in a heartbeat! It was a major plus that your puppy could come as well!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this little cabin! We had everything we needed there and if we didn't we were only 15 minutes away from Brainerd. Everyone enjoyed feeding the chipmunks, the kids had a blast. It was really nice having a full kitchen and laundry. We really loved having our own access to the lake, with our own dock we were able to fish and we even rented a pontoon one day and were able to pull up back home whenever we wanted. As an added bonus the weather was perfect the whole time. This cabin was a great value for the money, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little secluded spot on the lake!

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a fantastic week at this terrific property.

Paul was very accommodating to my questions as we arranged the trip and very friendly and helpful to us upon arrival. The neighbors were very nice and welcoming also.

This cabin is very comfortable and extremely well cared for. It is clear that Paul and Deb have spent much time and energy (and TLC) making this a wonderful lakeside retreat and our family enjoyed every minute. The cabin is super clean, the bedrooms are roomy and very comfortable, the kitchen is terrifically equipped, and the living room and porch are both wonderful places to relax after a long day of playing on the lake, shopping in town, golfing nearby, or taking in the many fun things to do in the area. The location is great -- you can run into town easily or avoid it completely and we did both. The yard is beautiful and provides plenty of space for outdoor fun.

I would highly recommend this property to any family looking to have a great get-away. We stayed in the summer but I bet it is great year round. As we were leaving, my son stopped, and went back in, saying he wanted just one more look around so he could really remember all the good times we'd had this week. What a terrific spot!
