Aitkin House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-23)

Built with beauty in mind, you will love this getaway. This house is the definition of relaxation. We built it ourselves and use it occasionally for our own family gatherings but all the time in between it is perfect for you and your family to escape to the country. Located on the Mississippi River you will surely experience wildlife and fantastic view of the river. There are tons of local events year round that can be accessed on the surrounding towns chambers of commerce (Aitkin,Crosby,Brainerd) websites. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need to prepare your own meals or you may contact us for local catering suggestions. Sunsets and sunrises are fantastic. The balcony on the riverside is very comfortable and patio furniture is provided. There is a 30X30 great room with extra lighting for late night activities. This location has been used numerous times for groups that get together and enjoy crafts such as scrap booking and quilting. Additionally this is a perfect facility to bring your church groups.

Excellent vacation spot for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had rented the home for a weekend away with friends and it was ideal for our large group (16), the home was beautiful and just a short drive into Aitkin. The common space was huge, the beds were comfy and the kitchen had everything we could have possibly needed for dishes, cookware and utensils. We had a wonderful time throughout each day playing yard games we brought along on the vast lawn and enjoyed fires at night with the fire-pit near the river. Billie the caretaker was very responsive to any questions we had and checked in to make sure all was well. Highly recommend this rental.

BEST FAMILY GET-AWAY WEEKEND EVER!

  • 4 of 5

Family get-away in this cabin was probably the best I've ever been to. Its beautiful inside and out, love the yard, plenty of acres and space... we fished right off the river (Mississippi), we enjoyed the sauna, we have plenty of space to sleep. Very spacious place, recommend for kids. Everything was an A+! Only thing I would wish for was a lake behind the house AND more walking scenes/distance/hiking & WiFi.

wonderful crafting weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property both inside and out is beautiful, we had a group of 19 women for a crating weekend, noone felt cramped at all. We are looking forward to returning again next year. The property was clean when we arrived and the house is warm and welcoming. Our overall experience was very positive.

beautiful, wonderful, amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how absolutely beautiful this place is. Charming, rustic, spacious, and so accommodating for just about any event. We actually rented the house for our wedding /honeymoon and could not have been happier. We have guest raving about how beautiful the place is. The owners are also amazing to work with. So friendly and helpful. We are hoping to make an annual trip out here for family get togethers. Can't wait to return!

Scrappers Gone Wild

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 17 ladies spend 5 AWESOME days!! There was plenty of room for all our supplies, equipment and pictures (which can be quite alot of stuff). The kitchen was very well equipped for all our needs. The view is awesome!! It is a quiet country setting but yet close enough to town if you need something. The owners are more than accomodating and were a joy to work with. We can't wait to go back next year!!
