Brainerd Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

New in 2010 - our lake home is located on Lower Whitefish Lake. The house features 100 feet of beautiful south facing sandy shoreline with perfect elevation and big lake views. The 3+ bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home (the fourth room has two full size built-in beds) has over 3700 finished square feet which includes a gourmet kitchen with fireplace, breakfast nook, and lakeside dining area, a mudroom/laundry, 2 fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, plus a large bonus room with wet bar, balconies, and our built in bunk. An extensive use of reclaimed materials can be found throughout the house. You will enjoy the scenic canopied drive out onto the Wabigoniss Shores peninsula and the privacy of the quaint neighborhood.

The house is perfect for families, mature couples and entertaining with its open floor plan and easy to work around kitchen. The large front yard and long driveway provide great spaces to play around. The lake in the backyard is just 75 feet away from the house - for easy access to the lake and no stairs.

Many additional photos available upon request.

Extensive high end dock space provides the ability to tie up your watercrafts.

Great family home on Whitefish!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our week at this home! We rented this home with my family for a week while my kids were at camp nearby. The location was fantastic! We had more than enough room to spread out and the home was pristine. We had a couple of younger kids so the sand beach was a huge draw for them. We rented a boat and it was very easy to get in and out of the dock. Definitely one of the best locations on Whitefish!! Everyone enjoyed swimming off the dock and the owner provided some water toys for us to enjoy. I loved that we could walk out of the house directly to the shore/dock, especially with younger kids. We were also given an extremely comprehensive list of restaurants, activities in the area, instructions for the house, etc. The owners were very helpful with answering any questions and they have really created a beautiful home for renters to enjoy. We had the most comfortable and relaxing week with our family and we look forward to renting again!

Awesome Minnesota Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

I grew up going on summer vacations to various lakes throughout northern Minnesota and wanted to introduce my family (wife, 13 and 10-year-old) to the experience for the first time. I spent a significant amount of time looking through all options in the area and spoke to several other homeowners prior to choosing this home. In addition, I have utilized VRBO several times previously. This is a first-rate place to stay and I highly doubt one could find a better choice in the area - my family loved it. It's an absolutely beautiful home in a great location. You walk right out to the lake rather than having to go up and down large stairs. We loaded up at a store before our arrival and cooked many meals and never once experienced a shortage of pans, utensils, blenders, etc. In addition, they had a pantry with basic items in case we had forgotten anything at the store. This is not common with VRBO homes; but came in super handy. It was easy to replenish items the next time we went to the store. It’s a quiet place with very friendly neighbors. We rented a pontoon that easily was tied up to the dock when not in use. We also utilized the fishing rods and fished with the kids right off the dock. They had a blast catching them. The owners also provided some water sport equipment that was thoroughly enjoyed by the family. Another intangible item that this owner provided was a multi-page list covering everything about the house and surrounding area. A great list of restaurants with comments on each, places to shop and visit. I checked in with David a couple times during our stay asking a question or two and he was extremely prompt and helpful with his replies. Plus we always had his cell number if we needed something. We slept as good or better on the beds than we typically do at home. We highly recommend this VRBO home and will absolutely be returning to it the next time we plan a trip to the area.

Oklahoma Gal

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful lake home! It was just as lovely as described. We met there for a close family reunion with ages varying from mid-twenties to late 60's, and the property was enjoyed very much by all. Most of us were familiar with the somewhat remote area, and enjoyed the scenic, rustic, peaceful beauty the property and area provided. Use of the kayaks was a big plus for the younger family members. We definitely would recommend this home.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with 5 friends at this beautiful and comfortable property over Memorial Weekend 2014. Owners left us a nice bottle of wine as a welcome gift! Spent a lot of time out doors as the weather was great - the dock and outdoor fire-rings are awesome. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. It is a small drive into town, about 10-15 minutes, but that keeps the area tranquil and unspoiled. Would love to back sometime soon!
