About Jared Gruett

Business owner, husband and father of 4.

Jared Gruett purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Jared Gruett chose Brainerd

We did not intend to rent when we purchased this second home. as our children have grown older (and we added some too!) we were unable to use the home as much as we had originally. We decided to rent the home out to help offset the cost of ownership and to justify keeping the home.

What makes this cabin unique

It is a very unique property on 5+ acres with lakeshore on two lakes. It is very private and tranquil, we love to relax and unwind when we are there anytime of the year.

Amazing Cabin & Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at this cabin and have loved every minute of it. The cabin is very beautiful and had all the amenities that were needed for a week stay. Our toddlers enjoyed running around on the big lot and having endless hours of fun playing in the sandy beach. I loved that the cabin is located close to Nisswa/Baxter/Brainerd so that we had many options on rainy days. The owners were very helpful as well. Can’t wait to go back!

Great family fun, despite the rainy weather!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week during our family vacation. Locals said it was the second-latest thaw ever, so the weather was unseasonably cool. Despite that, we had a great time!! The kids enjoyed fishing here. We lit the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. While visiting, we rented a boat for a day, went geocaching, explored Brainerd and the other area towns. The accomodations were comfortable and very spacious. Our kids loved the bunk beds. The view of the lake each morning was AMAZING!!! And the enclosed porch was a nice break during the rain. Overall, we would definitely recommend a stay here.

Lovely Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful two week stay at this home in Nisswa, MN. Everything was clean and spotless, and working well. Pretty lake setting, great weather, and congenial visitors (kids, grandkids) contributed to a terrific vacation, best we've ever had.

Family of six

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! The cabin was beautifully decorated and immaculate! We searched for the best fishing in the area and found that it was right off our own dock! We caught sunnies galore and a 12 inch and 18 inch pike along with a one pound bass. Can you believe it? We cannot say enough about this beautiful place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the knd words and the news of your great vacation. Our inability to use the home as much as we would like bums us out. Stories like yours make us feel good about our decision to share our home with guests like you and your family. Thanks again and Best Wishes, The Gruetts
