About Paul & Therese Erickson

Paul and I have owned and operated Camp Holiday Resort & Campground since 2003. We have two children and two pets. We love the outdoors, hunting, camping, fishing are many of the things we like to do as a family.

Paul & Therese Erickson purchased this house in 2012

Why Paul & Therese Erickson chose Brainerd Lakes

We have been looking for the right house to purchase for our retirement for when our kids take over the resort. That opportunity came about for us. A seclude, private home came up for sale on the east side of the lake. It is 30 wooded acres that has 900 ft of lake shore. The driveway winds you through the woods to this three story home. The house is all tongue and groove paneling.

What makes this house unique

You will also be able to you use all the amenities at Camp Holiday Resort & Campground.

Beautiful home, great owners who made sure all our needs were met!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was beyond gorgeous! The privacy and access to the lake can't be beat. Having camp holiday nearby allowed us to have access to boat and canoe rentals which were very reasonably priced. The home has 7 bedrooms which was perfect for our large group of extended family! Having 2 refrigerator's in the kitchen was super convenient and we had more space for food and drinks than we needed. The pool table was a hit for the kids and having 2 separate living areas was great for some separation between the kids and adults. Costco is a short 20 min drive away and the town of Garrison (5 min drive) had everything you needed. We have vacationed in MN and rented homes from VRBO for 6 years and we couldn't find a negative thing to say about this home..we loved it and are rebooking for next year!!!! Thank you to the owners for accommodating us and making sure we had everything we needed!!

Quiet, Spacious and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We are veteran VRBO customers and this was among the best places we've rented. We were a smaller group(5-7) but double the number would have been very comfortable because of the amount of room.

The accommodations are very nice, my wife was really impressed with the interior, the kitchen and family rooms were large. A nice screened in porch as well as a deck with a nice grill for cooking out. The lake wasn't very busy and there was easy access at their resort(don't fear its a 1/4 mile away) to fun rentals-canoes, kayaks, a pontoon. Therese was great to work with and very responsive, I would highly recommend!

As a group of 14 friends, this was a great space for us. The common areas were lovely and comfortable, the kitchen was beautiful and well stocked, and the bedrooms were comfortable. Having two refrigerators was a great help. Since we were there for a winter weekend and made soups and stews, I will remember to supplement bowls and spoons with paper/plastic ones when we return. We found ourselves washing them regularly. The kitchen table was lovely. When all 14 of us were not eating together, we were able to do puzzles and play games. I highly recommend this lovely home in a beautiful place. We were very comfortable, and the owners were very responsive. We called with a question, and they were able to help us. It was a comfortable weekend for a large group.

A group of 20 rented this cabin and it was perfect for us! The kitchen space was perfect [2 fridges!] Plenty of space for all of us to be in and not feel cramped. We really enjoyed this place and will be back!

Great Cabin for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was even nicer than the images. Plenty of room for our large group of 12 people, the beds were great, plenty of bathrooms, and great kitchen/dinning room. Great location - and the lake access was wonderful as well. The only thing that could have made this place better is a hot tub. Therese was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. Overall great experience, we'll be back!

Perfect winter get away for our big group!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our big family! our 5 kids and spouses and grandkids enjoy getting together in January to hangout, fish and play! We enjoyed this beautiful warm, big home was great! The garage was perfect for boots, fishing gear and went right into the laundry room that we needed as we had an oddly rainy weekend so the dryer and the fireplace helped with our many wet coats & mittens:-).... But the fish were biting! Crappies on the lake the house is located on and big ones on nearby Milacs. We were close to a great bait shop and all around the location was awesome! Best of anything Paul and Therese were by far THE nicest owners we have ever worked with!!! and we've been doing this for the past 5 years! They were so laid back and so willing to help with anything! It was a great weekend and so happy we found this gem!
