We had such an amazing time at this cabin. We've been staying in the Brainerd area for several years and this is one the best rentals we've had. There was plenty of room for five adults and two young children. The bunk beds in the lower level were definitely a hit with the kids! The cabin was clean and well kept not to mention beautifully decorated and lived up to the pictures online. We played for hours on end outside and appreciated the level yard (perfect for bocce ball, yard darts, etc.) and really loved the fire pit area with plenty of seating. We loved that the kids could play in the sand too! We also rented the pontoon during our stay and it was such a great addition to our vacation. The owners and property manager were very responsive. The check-in/out process and everything in between was fantastic. I would highly recommend this property to anyone!
Beautiful home with all the amenities
This home is gorgeous! They have everything, all the kitchen gadgets you would need, lots of blankets and pillows and even had fans in every room. The home is right on the lake with a little sand beach area for the kids to play in. We used the kayaks, jet ski and pontoon boat and never had to leave the home because we had so much to do! We caught lots of fish right off the dock as well. Very few places offer all of the things that the Lake House up North does and we couldn't have been happier with our vacation there. We are already planning our return trip next summer!
Girls weekend fun
We spent a Girls weekend celebrating my daughters upcoming wedding at this amazing home. The home was stunning, spacious and immaculately clean. The lake and property were perfect and had everything you could want for a wonderful lake vacation. The owners were wonderful and helpful in making our weekend amazing. Our families can’t wait to go back!
Cabin and property lives up to the beautiful pictures - and the hosts are great!
Rented this cabin for weekend gathering of friends. The weather was awful (low 40's and rainy all weekend in mid May), but luckily we picked this awesome cabin to spend the weekend in, because we all still had a great time. As I said in the title, the cabin really does live up to the expectations set by the great pics in the listing. The bedrooms were cozy and comfy, the living room and kitchen provided a great hangout area, and the basement was a great place to kick back and chill. The kitchen provided all of the tools we needed to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We did use the grill when it was 40 and rainy, although we would have liked to make use of the fire pit, kayaks, and other outdoor amenities. The hosts were very communicative, helpful, and friendly. They even left us a welcome gift basket upon our arrival.
All in all, this is exactly what I hoped for in my weekend rental to host a get-together for friends. Everyone in our group was super impressed. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a Minnesota getaway.
Great Getaway for the Crew
My close friends and I walked in the front door and immediately felt at home. The Lakehouse Up North is rustic and quaint in of the places you'd expect a cabin to be and modern in all of the places that you want any vacation home to be (gas stove, massive fridge, large TVs); none of the modern amenities seemed out of place. We rented the Pontoon as well. The storage for all of the life jackets, paddles for kayaks, etc... were so well organized and the boat was a dream to drive and ride on. Even though we didn't catch any fish we still had an excellent time toting around all day looking (it was too cold for the fish to bite that day - rumors of excellent fishing at Lake Sylvan abound).
My brothers and I have a week-long getaway planned later this summer and if The Lakehouse Up North were available on the dates we need, we would 100% have booked here.
Scott and Jenna are very well organized and incredibly accommodating to their guests. From the cute soaps in the bathroom to the welcome basket on our arrival (the coffee was excellent), the experience was perfect.
I cannot recommend more a couple to work with or a house to stay in.
Exceptional and beautiful
The cabin has beautiful views of the lake, is tastefully decorated and looks very new. We stayed 3 nights with grandparents and our 4 kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay even though it was chilly the whole time. The kids loved playing in the sand. They were happily occupied indoors in the amazing bunk bed room which had ample space to play board games as well run around. We were pleasantly surprised by the snack welcome basket that the kids immediately dug into.
Most of all, however, the owners were extremely kind and responsive. They contacted us soon after we arrived to make sure everything went smoothly. I cannot thank them enough for their huge favor of returning personal items that we mistakenly left behind. Not only were they extremely responsive, they retrieved our lost items and delivered them to our home after we returned. This is an exceptional cabin with EXCEPTIONAL owners.
