About the property

Brainerd, Minnesota

Have the ultimate retreat by escaping to this peaceful Brainerd vacation rental cabin. Situated directly on the shores of a beautiful, quiet lake that connects to the Mississippi River, this wonderful 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom home sleeps 5 guests and is the perfect place for those looking to relax or partake in activities like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, hiking, boating and more!


Master Bedroom: King Bed, 2 Twin Beds | Additional Sleeping: Queen Air Mattress

Featuring brand new construction, this property is actually a reconstructed boathouse nestled on the shores of the lake, meaning you can walk out the door and be in the lake within mere steps!

The house itself comfortably accommodate 5 guests throughout 1,000 square feet of tastefully appointed living space. Should you need more room for your travel party, there is a sister property available for rent located directly next door.

Sleeping arrangements include a plush king-sized bed and 2 twin-size beds in the main bedroom, plus a nice queen-sized air bed located on the home's second floor, all of which will ensure a good night's sleep before each new day of lakeside adventures.

The moment you arrive, you'll find yourself in awe of the amazing lakefront scenery and flourishing wildlife surrounding the property - large windows and sliding doors open up to an incredible lake view, and the sunsets here are practically guaranteed to take your breath away.

You and your companions will have plenty of room to unwind throughout the cabin's warm and welcoming interior, featuring an open concept floor plan with majestic vaulted ceilings and an abundance of glorious natural light, creating a very bright and cheery atmosphere for your vacation.

All the necessary comforts of home are here, including wireless internet access, cable TV, a supply of board games and puzzles for your entertainment, and a fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the essential cooking appliances. A canoe is also provided for your use and enjoyment while at the property.

At the end of the day, look forward to relaxing outside on the cabin's private deck, where you'll have a front row seat to observe the spectacular display of colors strewn across the sky as the sun crashes into the horizon.


No matter the season, the location of this home will always provide entertainment. The winter brings great opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating, and ice fishing. The fishermen in your group should definitely plan to bring their fishing gear along, as the lake bordering this cabin offers great walleye and bass fishing year-round.

A shared canoe will be available for use between the two sister properties on a first come first serve basis. You'll find a convenient boat landing nearby, in addition to fantastic hiking and walking trails close by. If you're looking to explore a bit further, be sure to check out Paul Bunyan Trail for hiking and biking trails, Paul Bunyan Land, or French Rapids, which has more hiking and biking trails, plus a 16K course for nordic skiing.

Even though you may feel a million miles away from the stresses of daily life while at this serene lakefront property, this cabin is only 3 miles from downtown Brainerd, with easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping. Ivan's on the Bay is close by and a local favorite for great happy hour specials. You can find more restaurants and shopping options over in Niswa, reachable in a 20-minute drive.

Other notable attractions and activities in the area include Brainerd International Raceway, North Central Speedway, movie theaters, Cuyuna bike trails, hot air balloon rides, Pirates Cove miniature golf, Grand Mille Lacs Casino, Military Camp Ripley Museum, and the fascinating Historic Log Village in Cross Lake, only 10 miles away.

Super cute boat house!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 2 kids, and I enjoyed our stay at the boat house. We loved all of the big windows looking out on to the lake. The proximity to town and groceries and target was great.

Peaceful, modern, beautiful - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The boathouse was better than I imagined and more then I hoped for. We were visiting Brainerd for business and looked forward to coming home every evening to our lovely place right on the lake. The location is ideal. The decor is well done. The king size bed is so comfy!

The boathouse was lovely! The view of the water was incredible. Unfortunately it did not have a swimming area for the kids, and fishing was very tough. However, Patrica was a wonderful host.

A lovely and tastefully done property

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a writing retreat - you can sit inside and feel like you are in the water. We got our project done! More proof of the lovely space. I took it down a star because if you do need heat, it is terribly loud. We managed with extra sweaters.

Lovely Lakeside

  • 5 of 5

This home was so perfect. It had all the necessities we needed for a quiet weekend getaway. The dock was lovely to sit on while watching the sunset. It felt clean and accommodating. We took a walk around the neighborhood and everyone we passed by was friendly and welcoming. All around perfect getaway weekend.
