About Sherry

I have lived in the Brainerd area for 47 years. I can offer you several ideas of nice places to eat and exciting things to do in the Brainerd Lakes area.

What makes this house unique

I pride myself on assisting my guests on planning a memorable stay at my lake home. I know a lot about Brainerd Lakes area and I am happy to make suggestions about fun and exciting things to do. Anywhere from having a float plane pick you up at the end of the dock for a bird eye view of the lakes. Or assisting you with a professional fishing guide or helping line up a fishing boat, speed boat or jet ski. If your a biker there are amazing bike trails near by. If you just want to go for a nature walk the Pillsbury State Forest is only a few blocks away. There is also a horseback riding stable within 5 minutes. And for the kids, the pig races are a hoot to see at The Bears Den in Leader, MN.

The comment that I most often get from my guests are that the pictures do not do the home justice and that they appreciate all the extras that are included in the home to make their stay more enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sherry,

Speaking for our group of 5 semi-professional golfers...we so enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort sporting lodge. While reminiscing each evening about our various Eagles and Birdies. We also reveled in watching your eagles and birdies at the lake house!

We look forward to staying here again as a respite from the oppressive heat of Houston and the oppression of our lovely wives.

All the best from the golf pros from Texas!

Wonderful lake home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed several days at this lovely home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Just five of us (family) so we had lots of space. Sherry was very accommodating. Would love to come back again. Thanks! NR

Fabulous lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at Sherry's beautiful lake home for four nights. The home is beautifully decorated and was furnished with everything we needed. The fire pit was one of our favorite places. We also enjoyed swimming off the dock. Sherry's suggestions for places to go for dinner and food to try were spot on. The home is in close proximity to many restaurants, bars, and breweries. Sherry is wonderful and easy to get a hold of. We will definitely go back!

Great place for large groups!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic trip staying at this spacious cabin on Gull Lake. The cabin was great for our family with kids, and two additional couples who came to enjoy it for the weekend with us. The view from the deck was amazing. We liked the location and proximity to restaurants on the lake. Sherry was extremely helpful and always available for questions. It was also really nice that tp, Kleenex, paper towels and soaps were provided and there was plenty to get us through the week! At other properties we often have to provide our own or so little is provided we end up doing a shopping trip right away. They even thought to provide extra sets of keys, something we've never seen in another vrbo cabin!

I would have given 5 stars but felt the property by the fire-pit and lakeshore where a little neglected, but I was the only one who seemed to care!

There were 8 of us that stayed here in June. Sherry was very helpful and helped us with all our needs. The house was stunning and there is a lot of room. The fishing was good and we enjoyed ourselves.

Stunning property!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of 6 other women in early June of 2015. Sherry was very helpful and accomodating of our needs. The property is spectacular and in a beautiful and quiet location. We couldn't have been happier with the house or location. We enjoyed our morning coffee down by the lake, eating and relaxing out on the deck overlooking the lake, and taking in all the area has to offer. Sherry had great suggestions for restaurants that didn't disappoint. It was the perfect getaway spot for some teachers needing a little R and R after a busy school year!

Perfect large, upscale home for large group or family

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this large, upscale family home and working with Sherry. We had family from the West and East coasts and both young and teenage children. PLENTY of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space. Huge kitchen and eating area with a beautiful deck to watch the sun rise in the morning. Loved eating outside in the evening on the spacious deck. Sherry was a dream to work with. For every question I had her answer would include an offer to assist with booking services. She is truly full service and delightful. Thank you!!!
