Watch for bald eagles, there are many on the lake! We have a sandy beach play area that sits above the lake shore, 150 feet of sandy, shallow lake shore, and a 60 ft dock for your boats. Great for skiing/tubing/wakeboarding without running into lots of other boats! Lower South Long Lake is a gem of a lake, approx. 1400 acres, very quiet, offering great fishing for walleye, bass, northern pike, crappies and pan fish, along with all the other boating fun. Sit around the fire at night looking out over the lake, with a great view and even when its hot we usually have a breeze. Sit on the swing or lay in the hammock in the shade and take a nap. Its all about kicking back and relaxing.Hiking, biking, golfing, Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox all nearby.

We provide a paddle boat and row boat (bring a fishing boat motor). Our lake is very quiet and our cabin is on a dead end road. We have great neighbors, lots of room in the yard to play or hang out without being on top of other cabins. The lakeside of the cabin is tree covered so on the hot days there is lots of shade. There is a breeze almost every night so even on hot days its pretty nice (and the A/C inside doesn't hurt) Don't miss this wonderful family owned cabin for your families to start their summer vacation memories! Two hours north of Minneapolis, seven miles SE of Brainerd. The boat access is just down the road from our cabin.

NOTE: we limit the number of day/visiting guests to 4 out of respect for our neighbors. If you'd like to have a ONE time larger gathering you need to notify and coordinate it with us ahead of time. NO pets, No smoking inside.

About Julie Sheehy

This is our family cabin that we continue to make improvements to, including our a total remodel of half of the main floor so we have a new kitchen, full bath, half bath, mud room type entry and all new carpet upstairs. Due to kids activities we knew we would not be able to use it for parts of the summer so we share it with other families. This will be our 14th year of renting to families that want to vacation together and start their memories!

Why Julie Sheehy chose Brainerd Lakes

We bought this property to begin our families memories. Our neighbors in Plymouth had a cabin on the lake and every year when we'd visit them they'd say 'why don't you buy a place'.. It worked and we did! It's a quiet lake, the fishing is great and we have awesome neighbors. Because it's only 2 hours from the cities it's easy to get to. It was a duplex when we bought it, and we first put a door between the 2 sides and the updates began. We decided it didn't work to have a duplex and we wanted a single family style cabin so we gutted the kitchen/bathroom areas (1/2 of the main floor) to the studs and started over. We love the new layout and works so great with plenty of room for everyone so you are not on top of each other. With our big yard both front and back and 150 feet of lake shore you have lots of room to enjoy your stay!

What makes this cabin unique

Big open lot, lots of privacy, wonderful lake.. Its a beautiful knotty pine cabin finished interior but with all the new amenities.. Big firepit area, great swing to watch the sunrise if you get up early enough, 60 foot dock, wonderful lake.

Cabin on South Long Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the cabin. Plenty of room for our group. The view of the lake was great. The kids were in the water all week and they could fish off the dock too. Close enough to drive to Brainerd, Nisswa and Garrison if needed. Would definitely come back again.

It sits up the hill, so we have breezes come in even on the hottest days with lots of shade around the cabin from big old trees. There are many things to do in and around Brainerd, all within 5-15minutes. Golf, shopping, restaurants, hiking and biking, see Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, and the Brainerd International Raceway.
