Our family has enjoyed vacationing on Bay Lake for over 70 years - 6 generations. We have made many memories and many friends here in the area.
Teresa and Matt purchased this cabin in 2014
In 2011 we found a place of our own on Bay Lake that offered lake access and a lake view. But in 2014 we could not pass up the opportunity to own a lake front home on Bay Lake. We are ready to make many more Bay Lake memories with family and friends.

This was our second time staying at this vacation property. Again this visit was outstanding. The fish were biting and we ended the week with a tasty meal of fish. The weather was also great, so we were able to enjoy the large backyard. We also attend church services at Church Island - that is always a treat to spend the service with Mother Nature. We are looking forward to another return visit in the very near future.
Five Star Review
Stayed here for a fishing trip with my dad and two sons, and it was perfect for us. Everything went smoothly and was as represented. Thanks for letting us stay there. I would recommend staying there to anyone.
We completely enjoyed our stay at Bay Lake. The fishing was great right off the dock and the rest of the lake is wonderful as well. We spent part of a day just cruising around and stopping to fish here and there. We enjoyed a campfire and smores one night and the lake was just like glass. The home was very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you may need. If you want to use the dishwasher or washing machine, bring your own soap!! We forgot, but picked some up when we visited Brainerd, Baxter, Nisswa, Garrison and Crosby the day it was off and on rainy. Crosby was having their summerfest so we enjoyed walking around to all the crafters, etc. while the boys fished!! There is a great binder full of information about the home and the areas surrounding Deerwood that the owner has put together. That was useful! Everyone had a great time and as with any vacation or getaway, it wasn't long enough and went way too fast! Thank you for the use of your wonderful vacation home! We will definitely keep this spot in our catalog of "will/would visit again"!!
Great location, close to many eating establishments, 20 minutes from Brainerd....
My two friends and I spent three nights here. It was right on the lake with beautiful views. We felt right at home during our stay and could not have asked for more. The house was clean and the listing description accurately depicted the location, layout, and amenities. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!
Home was just as advertised. The view of the lake was very nice. Our fishing was good. Many restaurants within a few miles. Had a very good time would recommend it to everyone.
We had a nice relaxing stay. Cabin was just as described - a perfect getaway for a two. Nice location, quiet, peaceful, great view of lake. Thanks!
