About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

This lovely 1500+ sq. ft. Lake Home is near Garrison MN on Round Lake (in the Brainerd Lakes Area), just a short 1-1/2 hour trip from the Twin Cities. Minutes from a boat landing on Mille Lacs Lake.

This is the place to bring your family and friends for a relaxing time. This 1500+ sq ft house with three private bedrooms; it has 2 full bathrooms (one being off the master bedroom). You have all the comfort of home. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, utensils, dishes and small appliances. There is a full size refrigerator with large top freezer, stove, oven, and of course a microwave oven for late night popcorn, while watching your favorite DVD/VHS movie on the TV or your other favorite TV programs. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. Be sure to pack your favorite beach towel!

This Lake Home Retreat is your dream vacation on a great quiet lake with sandy beach and beautiful clear water. The lake is great for all activities - fishing, boating, swimming, skiing, paddle boating, canoeing, tubing, or just relaxing. It has great swimming for children with a shallow sandy beach with gradual depth. Provided for your enjoyment: canoe, paddle boat, bocce ball, ladder ball, croquet, board games, cards as well as a DVD/VCR for rainy days plus Dish Network to enjoy your favorite sports or shows! Relax by the lakeside fire pit and watch the beautiful sunsets over the lake. Maybe enjoy golf at one of the many courses nearby (Rutgers Bay Lake, Cuyuna Country Club, Mille Lacs Lake Golf to name a few of the courses), or how about an evening at the Casino just 7 miles away, or shopping, great eating and recreation in the Brainerd Lakes Area. For the kids, or kid in you; how about Paul Bunyan Amusement park just 10 minutes away or mini golf in nearby Deerwood. Maybe curling up with your latest favorite book, or playing board games or cards is your style. Enjoy your favorite grilled food on the large deck with the Weber grill, but remember your charcoal and lighter fluid!

If fishing is your pleasure - you will enjoy trying to catch maybe a resident northern, walleye, bass, or pan fish or just some great sun! Round Lake is about 1000 acres and up to 128 ft deep in the middle. Remember to pack your favorite lures and poles, and don’t forget your life jackets!

You, your family and/or friends will create some of those memories you will cherish for years to come. Don’t forget your camera. No guns, please.

About The Owner

We enjoy our lake home very much! We have another Lake Home and decided to rent this one - as we have decided to keep both in the family.

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

Location was great - not too far of a drive from the Twin Cities with great roads. Close to Mille Lacs Lake for some great fishing - close to Brainerd for great entertainment. The best thing is Round Lake is a great lake, just the right size, not too busy with a lot of other boaters, it has a sandy beach with very clear clean water, and great swimming for the entire family. We are located in a great bay with very few other property owners.

What makes this house unique

The tranquility of the lake and sunsets are just amazing. It is hard to explain until you have experienced it. The sandy beach, quiet lake, swimming, and just soaking up the sun on the dock or relaxing by the fire in the fire pit are so enjoyable. The large lot makes it nice to enjoy other lawn activities while still enjoying the water. Also, watching the resident eagles soar and osprey dive for fish add to the total enjoyment of the lake experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for the great weekend cabin. The kids love swimming in the sandy beach and we had fun jumping off the dock. I would love to visit again in the future!

A beautiful week!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have returned to this cabin. The cabin is very clean and the property is well maintained. The sandy bottom beach is great! The sunsets are incredible and we have enjoyed the view from the water, next to the lake by the fire and from the cabin.We also love exploring around the area. There are a lot of options near by. The owners are wonderful hosts! We would definitely come back.

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cabin for our group of 4 guys, enough room to spread out in. The sunsets are fantastic! The owners were great people who take pride in their rental. I am already planning a return trip in 2017 with my wife! We couldn't ask for a cleaner cabin! Thanks Karen and Doug!

Perfect weekend!

The cabin is clean and comfortable, and we hung out on the large deck or floating in the lake! The owners take great pride in the cabin and the grounds, and made for a fabulous girls weekend! Highly recommend it!

Cozy cabin, perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Four of us stayed here - four adults and one toddler and the size was just right. The shallow, clear,sandy beach is perfect and a standout feature for us. We also loved the big beautiful deck, bonfire area, and lawn. The kitchen and home are well stocked with everything we needed (i.e. Cooking utensils, etc). The cabin overall is well taken care of and clean, and the owners are super thoughtful, professional, and considerate. We would stay here again!

Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 8. Two kids and six adults and we all had plenty of room to eat, sleep, and relax. The kids played all day and the adults had some nice quiet time at night to build a campfire and catch up with each other. The only complaint is that we didn't have more time! Would definitely like to make this a yearly trip!

Serene couple's retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I received this vacation as a gift from our adult children and what a gift it was! We spent the week at our leisure on sand beaches, crystal clear water and towering trees. The sunsets were fantastic reflected on the glassy water. We golfed three of the local courses and enjoyed their scenic beauty as well.

A special thank you to the host and hostess of this property for their cordial sharing of information, people, and local hot spots for us. We appreciated your open friendliness and all the people we met at Round Lake.
