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

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

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.

Had fun fishing!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for an extended weekend in the beginning of the summer. We took our two dogs who loved the big yard.

The mosquitos were quite bad (likely from the wet weather) so we did not get to enjoy the deck or fire pit. There is a screened in porch, but we did not use it. My husband saw a "snake" by the screen door (I did not see the snake... EVER), but the furniture looked really comfortable.

It was raining for two of the 4 days, but we still went fishing. This was a surprisingly good fishing lake. Great bass fishing in the reeds across the lake from the dock. Caught 30+ bass in a few hours between three of us on the boat. We even caught some walleye and northerns on the cabin side of the lake at break points! The lake was easy to navigate, and there was more underwater structure for fishing than expected as it is a bowl structure lake. The gas station up the road had bait and really long hours of operation so it was very handy. The dock had a slip for our boat.

The basement was nice to have during the rainy times. We played darts and pool which was fun.

The kitchen was really nice. All new appliances and a Keurig (huge bonus)!

Loved the cabin manual which gave all the info needed. Including an explaination for why the water has a sulfur smell. We did drink bottled water, but used the water for cooking and it seemed fine.

We had a really good time on Lake Edward!

Comfortable lake home!!

  • 5 of 5
Paula and Thomas,
We just spent a "mini" family reunion at your lovely lake home. We all agreed it was beautifully done and we were ready to relax. We enjoyed the pool table, large TV and the dining table was just great for cards..and seated our family and friends comfortably. Everything was available for cooking and we enjoyed many meals at "home". The upper outdoor patio was enjoyed so many times for the first cup of coffee in the morning and for lunch....a great view! Our schnauzer, Dusty, couldn't get over the massive green lawns and ran all over with us, free as a bird.The location was also convenient, as we are originally from Brainerd and had friends and relatives to visit, too. Our only drawback was the "odor" in the water and having to wash bedding and putting it back on.....at age 76-83. We made it though!!! We're young at heart. Thank you for "sharing" your lake home!!
