About Lori

I have been coming up to the. Brainerd/Nisswa area since I was 5 years old. We originally had a cottage on Nisswa lake. My father built this home in 1989 and we spent many incredible times up here year after year.I live in McKinney Texas and I am busy raising 2 daughters and working in the ceramic tile industry as well. While I absolutely love the Brainerd Lakes area distance prohibits me from visiting as often as I would like. I enjoy running, golfing and water skiing.

Lori purchased this house in 1989

Was truly and excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations by a long way. After renting small resort cabins a few times for almost the same price, This home was clean, well stocked, and beautiful. The owner was more than easy to work with, and I know that my wife and I will be returning to this home again. The furniture is comfortable, the bed, at least in the master, was beyond comfort expectations. The dock is great, and has a very good swimming area, and also had a nice yard space by the lake, including a fire pit. This was a great area for our dog to lay around while we were swimming in the lake. While I was there, the cable on the boat lift broke, and was fixed the next day.

I can't say enough about how great it has been to work with the owner. Not to mention, that I caught more fish during this week than I have caught in a long time. Bass, walleye, Northern (34+ inch), crappies, and sunnies were all caught.

All in all we had just a fabulous week.

My husband and I have rented many properties , stayed in many time shares that were considered Gold Crown but none of them even come close to this property. It was very comfortable, very,very well supplied and clean. We loved the fishing and the view from the deck was great. The only challenge we had was that we had 2 in our party who struggle with negotiating steps and there are many especially going to the dock. We will be going back soon.

Couldn't Have Been Better!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent years spending large sums to go to a resort on Gull Lake. This was our first foray into lakehome rental, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The home was large, clean, and well-located. Even better was the owners personal attention! Prior to our arrival, Lori was quick and attentive to my email inquiries. During our stay, she was but a phone-call away. I was called away for a family emergency during our stay, and she sent the nicest card in response. My whole family felt as though we were staying at a home of a personal friend! We are waterskiers and found her dock to be well-suited for our boat and the location of the home near Wilson Bay was perfect. We will certainly be returning to this home for future vacations! I'd highly recommend this home to anyone seeking a quiet place with a fabulous view...just don't take the time we want next year!!!!!

Outstanding!!!! Truly the best.

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO on numerous occasions in many different states. I read the reviews very carefully, and I truly use them to narrow down my choices. I can honestly say that my experience with this property was the best I have ever had. 2 things stand out for me, communication and cleanliness. Let's start with communication. The owner (Lori) responded to everyone of my numerous questions and concers within a five minute time period. I have never had an owner make me feel this comfortable before. When we got to the property, not only was it spotless, literally EVERYTHING was provided, all the way down to the charcoal and lighter fluid with never happens at other rentals.. The house has two decks over looking Gull lake, and to watch the sun come up is breath taking. I wish I could add my own pictures to this review, as then you could see what I am talking about. There is ABSOLUTELY no doubt in my mind that I will be in this property again next year if it is available.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and if we come back to the Gull Lake area this fall / next year, we would not hesitate to rent this house again. The property was very nice and very well cared for with lots of extra amenities and a million dollar view of the lake.

What was as important to me is that the people you are renting from are truly nice people and were very accommodating and easy to work with.

Overall a very enjoyable stay / rental experience.
