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.

This place exceeded our expectations. We've stayed at a handful of VRBO lake homes, and this one was definitely the nicest. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are well outfitted and very easy & comfortable to use. The basement rec. room and porch were great for hanging out later in the night and when it rained.

The sunsets were gorgeous, and the long grass expanse from the cabin to the lake was great to throw the tennis ball for our dog and play bocce ball. Our toddler daughter loved playing in the sand by the water, chasing the dogs around the grass, wading in the the lake, and taking rides in the golf cart. We had a lovely time roasting marshmallows by the bonfire one night as well. The property wasn't very buggy at all (we've had stays at other cabins which were spent mostly checking for and removing ticks), and we saw deer, egrets, hummingbirds and other wildlife. Really, the only thing itme I wouldn't give perfect marks to is the lake front. It's a bit weedy/mucky, and the long dock invites a lot of seagulls to perch and poop on it. That said, there's a great clear area of shallow water out a bit where you could wade/swim around in, so you can still easily enjoy the lake.

Another nice amenity are some of the things in relatively close proximity. My brother-in-law and I took a morning trip to Cuyuna State Park (~20 minute drive) and mountain biked, and we all went to Nisswa as well to eat out and shop.

The house was clean when we arrived and everything was in good working order, the whole experience was stress free. The property owners are friendly, available and easy to work with as well. I highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Brian, thank you for your response. The property's lake front was unattended for several years and we are slowly working on clearing the area directly in front of the sandy beach......slowly but surely.....but yes there is clear water and great swimming about 1/2 way out the dock. Thank you for choosing Lake Edward and we hope you come back! Paula and Thomas

This property worked out beautifully for our family. The property was clean and everything was in good repair. The owners have really thought of every detail. The property was well-equipped and well supplied with all the basic necessities. We enjoyed the wonderful dock and the clear water. It was especially nice for our grandchildren as the water is shallow for quite a ways out. The multiple living spaces in the property also worked out well for our 3 generation family. The owners were readily available to answer any questions. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

We had a great two week stay. The cabin was well appointed with all conveniences that we desired. The place was beautiful, clean and well maintained. The lake was good for swimming; sandy bottom, crystal clear water, and reasonably shallow a good way out. Lake and road traffic was minimal. Close enough for bicycling, shopping, and dining out. Despite the presence of lakefront neighbors, the place a nice secluded feel. The fire pit, bocce ball set and pool table provided hours of entertainment. The deck for morning coffee and evening dinners was perfect. We also spotted deer, a bald eagle, orioles and hummingbirds from the deck.

The owners were readily available and very responsive to any questions we had during our stay. The place was perfect for us and our college age daughters.

Excellent location and the property was PERFECT for our family. Lovely interior and had many amenities. It was very clean and well kept. Loved the lake b/c it was crystal clear and shallow. The location was wonderful for biking, golfing, restaurants, wildlife. We biked the Paul Bunyon trail and golfed at Crosswoods, which was beautiful and very reasonable! As for getting to the biking trail, one does need to ride a little distance on the highway to get to the trail, or use a bike rack to transport the bikes. The owners were very responsive to all emails and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Nothing surprised us about the property, except it was better than we expected!
