Minnesota House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is truly a gorgeous property and a place to make dreams come true. It was built in 2008, so everything is new, no old cabin smell here!! As you can see the windows overlooking the lake allow you to take in all the lake has to offer.

The views of the sun rising in the morning and the sun setting at night are truly breath taking. If you are a fisherman, then you have come to the right place as it is not more than a 5 minute boat ride to some of the best walleye and musky fishing on the lake. No matter if you like to go sailboating or jet skiing it is all here for the taking. You will enjoy the ease of having your own boat landing and private dock.

There is also a marina within walking distance if you have a large boat, need gas or just looking to hang out with the locals. Our lake home is 3.5 miles to Garrison, 23 miles to Brainerd and keep in mind that after a day on the lake its only a 15 min drive to all the night life at the Grand Casino and several restaurants with amazing food. You can also enjoy some of the best golf courses in the state of MN, go to see Brainerd International Raceway or bike ride on the paved Soo Line Trail just south of our property. No matter what it is you enjoy, this is the place where dreams come true.

About Stacy Deason

Cary and Stacy currently live in Brainerd, Minnesota. Cary went to school at STCU. Cary looks forward to hunting season, as he is an avid huntsman. Stacy is presently a homemaker and takes care of our four beautiful children. Stacy's passion is flying airplanes. Mille Lacs is plenty big to land a plane. We always dreamed of having a home on a lake. In 2008, we found this location and started to build this lovely house, to someday be where we retire. We thought we would share it to the public, so that everyone can enjoy what this home and lake have to offer. We love fishing, boating, skiing, also watching the sunrise and wildlife in the morning is just beautiful. Listening to the waves at night as you watch the sun go down, makes it feel like you are at the ocean. In the winter we enjoy ice fishing, and the winter activities the town offers on the lake. The snowmobiling trails in Garrison can get you anywhere you want to go, even to the casino; we love to eat at the seafood buffet. Hope you enjoy this home, as our family loves it.

Why Stacy Deason chose Minnesota

This lake and property intrigued us as it is filled with everything you need if you are a fisherman, snowmobiler/ATV or hunter. We chose this side on the lake because it was the best for Walleye and Muskies. During the Spring you can see the Muskies under the dock finding warmer, shallower water. You are surrounded by it all. With your own private dock and landing, it makes it easy to get in/out on the lake. If you don't have a boat, the Marina is walking distance and on our street to take you to the fish. We have a nice paved, quiet street to rollerblade and bike. A big yard to play games and nice paved driveway for your boat. Water and electricity is provided right by the dock. The private/covered hot tub has enough room for six adults, and it is nice after a hard day out on the lake, open all year around. We designed the house for large families with an open floor plan, makes the house feel roomy and comfortable. There is a beautiful view from every room, just breathtaking. The town of Garrison is three miles and 15 miles to the casino, if you love to gamble. Crashing of the waves at night, sounds like you are at the ocean, somedays you can't see the other side. This lake has activities all year around, lots to do. We just love the view and the fishing is awesome most all year around. Beautiful wildlife, peaceful and very relaxing at our home.

What makes this house unique

Mille Lacs Lake is an outdoorsmen's and fishermen's dream, full of every kind of fish and wildlife from Eagles to Deer. There is every kind of fish in this lake, from Walleye to Muskies. Ice fishing is the best! Our home is located on most desired side of the lake. Snowmobile and ATV trails located off the highway about two miles north, Minnesota has over 27,000 miles of trails. All of the activities that are offered on this lake are like no others, from fishing contests, to car racing on the ice, to wind sailing. This lake is 27 miles in diameter, third largest in the state, you can't see the otherside of the lake. Just a gorgeous place to visit.

Great time in Garrison!

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I rented Cary and Stacy's cabin for a weekend getaway, and we couldn't have asked for a better time. It has a great layout and was a great size--actually more than we needed for 9 people!

It had all the amenities we needed, with the exception of extra toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags... but that was an easy run to the small supermarket in Garrison. Everything else was provided, including great quality towels, nice dishes, ample fridge and freezer space for food for the weekend, everything!

We ventured out to Kathio State Park (about 20 minutes away) and climbed the 100-foot observation tower. It was gorgeous looking out over the fall leaves and Mille Lacs.

We are considering making this an annual trip and highly suggest other people check out their great cabin.

Something for Everyone

  • 5 of 5

Had the fortunate experience to stay at this home over New Years with my large family, and it was perfect. Best way to summarize it is this home has something for everyone. From the layout of the house allowing the younger kids to enjoy the game room/family room while the adults enjoyed each others company in the large kitchen/dinning room, to all the entertainment accessories (hot tub, poker table, family games)...a great time was had by all.

Girls weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

7 of us girls booked this home for a weekend getaway! We were amazed at how spacious the house was! Amazing accommodation and Stacy was very very very nice to work with! Even with it being -20 below we still were able to enjoy the hot tub. More than we were expecting. Would recommend bringing Tupperware to put leftovers into otherwise there was lots of kitchen supplies!

We will definitely be putting Tupperware in the kitchen, you will have some there for your next trip. I try to make sure everything is perfect and the cabin has everything needed for a stress free vacation. Sincerely, Stacy

Wonderful Christmas Away

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to see the cabin decorated as we visited for a long weekend over Christmas. The home was bigger than we anticipated. The kids loved all the toys there and the adults liked the foosball, Atari, and card table. We had lots to do inside and enjoyed the winter outdoors, too! Lots of space to hang out and large enough dining table to fit our large group. The owner connected us with a company to rent snowmobiles and it may be the highlight for us all!

Owner's Response: We wanted to thank you for choosing our home for your Christmas vacation. We wanted to decorate for you to make your Christmas feel like you were at home. So happy it met all of your needs and was spacious enough to fit your whole family. Glad the kids had a fun time in the mild winter weather we had that week. Hope to see you next year or even this summer for a beautiful Mille Lacs Lake getaway. Take Care, Stacy

The Ripple River Hunting Crew

  • 5 of 5

We rented the House of Dreams for hunting season this year and it was great (we were spoiled this year and loved it)! Everything we needed was there and the house worked perfectly for our crew. Stacy was always available and more than willing to help if we needed anything. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you so much!

This place was amazing. Much more than I expected actually. A few friends and myself stayed for the weekend for my "bachelor party" and it was perfect. The hot tub was great, the yard was big enough to play football and everything we needed besides food was provided. The weather just happened to be perfect the weekend we were there. It was a little windy so the lake was a little choppy and we decided to stay off of it and we also heard that it wasn't the best lake to go swimming in because of people getting swimmers itch so we didn't spend any time in the water. The view was beautiful and the lake was so big it looked like we were on the ocean. The golf course down the street (Northwood Hills) was in pretty good shape but it is very wooded and we made the mistake of not bringing any bug spray. The course played very well. The greens and fairways were in good shape and the clubhouse and golf carts were brand new. There was so much to do inside and outside the house we were never bored. The card table was great for everyone to play poker (chips and cards in the game cupboard) and the retro arcade was great as well. I can't wait to come back and have to time to spend an entire weekend here and be able to relax a bit more than we did as we tried to fit a lot of activities into a short weekend.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you got more than what your bargained for on this property. We try to make it as comfortable and clean as possible for everyone. The house is so close to everything you need. The house is on the right side for the best fishing experience. Glad you like the big open space, it is intended to be more inviting with big families. Hope to see you again in the future. Stacy D.
