Classic lake home located on large private lot with 260 feet of shallow rock lined beach with a hard sandy bottom . This home has 5 bedrooms with 1 king, 2 queen and 4 single beds plus 2 sofa beds, one with queen mattress and the other with full size mattress. 3 full bathrooms, 2 stone fireplaces, a large living room, family room & kitchen on the main level.

The house is located 10 miles east of Brainerd and 8 miles west of the famous Lake Mille Lacs walleye factory. The Brainerd lakes area is also known as Minnesotas resort capital and home to many championship golf courses. Portage Lake is one branch of the Crooked Lake chain with over 900 acres of clear water for boating, swimming and fishing. The property is available year around and is a great place for winter sports. There are many groomed snowmobile & cross country ski trails close by. Ice fishing is also popular with small villages of ice fishing houses springing up on the lakes when the lakes ice over.

About The Owner

We are native Minnesotans who moved to Washington state in the mid 90's . We grew up enjoying the summers and the lakes of our home state and had both dreamed of owning a vacation property there someday. We have many family members in Minnesota and this large home has been a wonderful place to gather.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

We enjoy this area because of the water activities and great golfing nearby. It is also a convenient place to get to from the minneapolis airport.

What makes this house unique

The resident loon and eagles on this lake never fail to inspire us. Our property is around 2 acres filled with oak trees and in a rural ,peaceful setting.

Very enjoyable stay at this lakehome

  • 5 of 5

This lake home suited our needs perfectly! Very large and spacious home with air conditioning allowed us to feel right at home. Plenty of storage for groceries, seating for meals, open areas to relax, and parking for everyone. Really convenient location, the lake was beautiful, and with the wonderful pontoon, we enjoyed every minute. Loons, ducks, and a bald eagle visited daily. Large veranda out back was a favorite place for games and an Elvis entertainer. Best vacation, ever!

Family celebration

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property July 2 - 9, 2011. We were celebrating an anniversary so our whole family was in

attendance (15). We had a wonderful time, everything was as expected. The rooms were very roomy, just as in the pictures. Large driveway to acccomodate all our cars. The weather was hot and humid all week, thats when the pontoon was really appreciated, the lake was warm and clear for swimming, and floating on water toys. Some enjoyed the area golf courses, we dined at the Lonsome Pine, very good food. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful deck, and cooked hot dogs on the grill on the fire pit, along with good ole smore's. We would recomend this property to anyone looking for a good time, with plenty of room. The owner was very helpful in answering any questions we had, and the best part

was it was not very far from the city.

Family Vacation July 24 - July 31 2010

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. We loved the layout of the house and the large yard for badmitton and other yard games. The lake was so warm and clear for snorkeling and tubing that we went every day. The location of the house was perfect for shopping or just running to the bait shop. We all would recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect family get-away.
