About Paula Schwartz

Getawayupnorth is our second property in the Brainerd Lakes area. Our first cabin was purchased 10 years ago and we LOVE this area. Our kids have been raised 'at the cabin' every weekend and we can't say enough of the memories and strong family bonds created. The intent of the Merrifield Lake home is that it will be our permanent home in years to come. In the meantime we wish to share our beautiful lake home with others.

Paula Schwartz purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Paula Schwartz chose Merrifield

This lake home has all the comforts of home yet offering all the uniqueness of a 'get away up north' in Minnesota.

What makes this cabin unique

Extra large yard, pet friendly, pontoon available and all the amenities of home at the lake!

A Wonderful Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home + beautiful surroundings = an amazing week at the lake. We had a great time celebrating Christmas and the new year up at the lake thanks to Paula and Thomas. Despite the lack of snow we had fun ice skating and ice fishing on the lake. Our dog loved running around on the lake and enjoyed chasing the blowing grass. Our family continued the fun inside while we warmed up by the fire by playing games, watching movies and playing pool. Our girls said their favorite parts of the week were skating, learning to play pool and dinner at Raferty's in Nisswa, a family favorite. Plenty of space for an extended family getaway and the bunks made it fun for the kids to share a room. We would definitely recommend this cabin for a getaway in any season. Thank Paula and Thomas!

Owner's Response: Getaway Gophers! Thank you for your wonderful words. You are the first winter guests and we are thrilled to know that others enjoy the winters at the lake too.....even with the lack of snow. We hope you will consider coming back in the summer and enjoy all the warm weather activities Lake Edward has to offer. Paula and Thomas

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, especially appreciate all new updated appliances, granite countertops and great bathrooms. Bedrooms were large and very comfortable. The availability that the owners made of their new pontoon was the icing on the cake- we were able to be on the water every day and truly enjoy the great outdoors and what Northern Minnesnowta has to offer- the BEST place to be in the Summer.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the pontoon and the beautiful lake......everyone keeps telling us how good the fishing is......we need to get out there ourselves! Thank you for staying at our home and we hope you will come back again! Paula and Thomas

We had a wonderful week again at this property. Although the weather was not so good to us as last year--we had some rainy days--this cabin still provides ample space and activities to have an enjoyable time even when it is rainy. We particularly enjoyed the pool table and the DVD player/tv in the lower level. The owners have really thought of everything you might need for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommend!

Exceeding expectations

  • 5 of 5

The VRBO listing displayed and described a beautiful getaway near Nisswa for our extended family - grand parents, parents, and grandchild. The billing was spot on. The granite counter tops, hickory cabinets, new stainless appliances, dishes, glasses, silverware, pots and pans all completely met our needs. Plenty of kitchen space for the cooks. Our family of 7 fit very comfortably in the beds with sufficient towels to go around and to the beach. The custom pool table provided lots of distraction when we were not in the water - bocce ball, crochet, volleyball, kayak, canoe were all supplied - and a golf cart to get you down to the water. We brought our ski boat and kept it on the provided boat lift. Situated on a beautiful lake of good size. The lake was quiet - a couple of ski boats, a jet ski, and a half dozen fishing boats. We had a great time - it was our first but hopefully won't be our last.

Beautiful property + excellent owners = wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting the property and it was even better than the first! The cabin itself is outstanding and the outdoor amenities are great. Everything is as pictured and well kept, the owners are terrific.

We had our four kids with us, ranging in age from 15 - 23, and there was something for everyone, even our two dogs! The pool table was well used and we thoroughly enjoyed the use of the pontoon boat. Evenings on the deck, watching the sunset, were very relaxing.

Shopping and restaurants are nearby, we recommend the burgers at the Half Moon bar just down the road.

We're already planning next year's visit!

Fun, relaxing vacation for all ages

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, clean and private. The view is peaceful and the setting relaxing. We were pleasantly surprised that the lake was a good size, not busy and the water was warm. Fishing off the dock was great for kids. We loved playing outdoor games like badminton and bocce, and enjoyed the bonfire and s'mores. Our kids and parents enjoyed all the amenities and we loved reconnecting as a family. Nearby Paul Bunyon bike trail is worth bringing your bikes too. Even if the weather isn't nice, this house will keep your family entertained and relaxed.
