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.

Fabulous Lake House

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my extended family at this vacation home and it was wonderful. We had several kids and 5 adult couples and everyone was thrilled with the accommodations - lots of space, clean and comfortable. We were extremely impressed with the well manicured lawn, lots of privacy and fantastic fire pit with lots of outdoor seating, grill, beach area, and lake access. The kitchen was very spacious and nicely appointed and there was plenty of dining space for our 10 adults and 6 kids. We all loved the size of the bedrooms and the quality of the mattresses and linens. Having Camp Holiday nearby was also great for rental equipment, their playground, and store. We highly recommend renting a pontoon along with the house, as it was great to have easily accessible to fish or swim or cruise around. The service from Therese and her team was also wonderful. Very attentive and helpful and made things very easy. Wi-Fi was great as well. I would highly recommend this house/lake/area if looking for a great getaway cabin for friends or family.

The property was well maintained with privacy on all sides!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The house was big enough to accommodate 20 of us easily without feeling like we were crowded. The kitchen provided a great variety of utensils, pots and pans and other items necessary for cooking. The house was clean from top to bottom, inside and out with a well manicured lawn and clean beach. The trees surrounding the property provided the privacy we were looking for without any neighbors other than the ones across the lake. I would highly recommend this house for a large group looking for a peaceful vacation!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 (4 families, all adults) stay at this house for 4 nights and it worked perfectly for our needs.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor (including master), two bedrooms upstairs and three in the lower area (walkout basement). The kitchen was large and had two refrigerators which was very nice for a large group. The furniture is very well done with leather couches and chairs in the living area and large dining table with bench seating in the kitchen area. There is a nice TV in the living room with satellite TV. Also, the wifi as very good in the house. There is a pool table in the basement and a nice washer and dryer on the main level.

There is a screened in porch that we didn't use much but is very nice and a decent sized deck with a newer Weber gas grill.

The backyard is large with a great fire pit in the middle. We brought boce ball and the yard made for some interesting play.

We met the owner, Therese, a couple of times and she is very friendly and was willing to help make our stay great.

Overall, the house was exactly what we were looking for and I would recommend this house to anyone.

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.
