Why Andrew Janis chose Brainerd
We fell in love with this house the first time we saw it. Great views from every window, close to the water on a small, quiet lake. The first time we went, there was a loon calling to us from the lake, and an owl from the woods. A great blue heron likes to sit on the end of our dock and walk around our shore. The cabin has a great layout, and is appointed with knotty pine and a beautiful wood burning stone fireplace.

Great place to enjoy activities and share time with friends and family .
The location on a medium sized clean clear lake was ideal for our family to kayak , using our own yaks as well as the 2 provided . The beach area was in tune with keeping the health of the lake in mind with an adequate sandy area for kids and adults to play in water . The swim raft out a little distance keep swimmers in touch with a place to rest up a little and hang out . Overall it was a peaceful setting with loons , eagles and sunfish for kids of all ages to catch right off the dock . The accommodations were clean, comfortable and functional . A very pleasant open area for cooking and dining , keeping everyone in the mix of conversations . Some high lights that brought smiles were the vast array of ‘ thinking ‘ games , toys and puzzles , from chess to legos ! Dining outside on the lake facing deck was great : the lack of bugs and afternoon shade from 1pm - sunset made being outside a treat for everyone . The best question to ask someone if they truly think something to be worthwhile / enjoyable , is to ask if they would do it again . Our group’s collective answer is a resounding YES !
Loved this place!
We had an amazing week at this cabin. It was meticulously kept, had everything we could have ever wanted -- including toys for my youngest and a cool loft bedroom for my teenager! The host was so accommodating! It was a great experience. Can't wait to go back!
We loved it!!
We were thrilled with our stay! The cabin is clean, very comfortable and well stocked with supplies. We especially appreciated the kids toys, books and movies as well as the kids plates, cups and utensils! The close proximity of the cabin to the lake was fabulous! The separate porch area was great too and a wonderful morning coffee spot to watch the sunrise over the lake and entertain my toddler until the others awoke! We really enjoyed this quiet lake. As soon as we arrived we were already talking about a return trip. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!
Beautiful Cabin - Great for Families and Kids!
We loved our stay in this beautiful cabin! The cabin is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated with quality furniture/beds and furnishings, and is well stocked with supplies. This was a perfect spot to stay travelling with a 3 year old as we especially loved the kids toys, books, puzzles and movies on hand! The porch was a great spot to drink morning coffee and watch the sunrise over the lake and entertain my daughter while the other adults were still sleeping. The close proximity of the cabin to the lake was fabulous! We enjoyed the sand beach area and swing. My daughter caught her first fish off the dock. We also loved that this lake is quiet and peaceful. Andrew is easy to contact and work with. We would love to come back. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
Wonderful, relaxing vacation
Our family of 7 had a much needed relaxing vacation at this, beautiful cabin. The high ceilings and windows with the beautiful views were a delight. Everything was so clean, well kept, an abundance of homey touches, and the kitchen was so well stocked.(a highlight for Mom). We enjoyed the quiet, clear small lake with the kayaks & canoe, fishing off the dock & floating raft, and our own paddleboards. The lake was perfect for our teens and younger children as they could venture far out and still be safe & in view. The trees were perfect for several hammocks we brought and the fire pit was great for evening relaxation. The beds were so comfortable (the futon was perfect for our oldest who was able to join us for a couple of days) and living area & 3 season porch were cozy for reading, game playing, and nighttime movie watching. It was a plus to have a washer/dryer! The whole cabin is so well thought out with all the nice amenities and the beautiful lake makes for a perfect vacation for a family that needs together time and relaxation. Brainerd is close enough for a night out of pizza and mini golf. Didn't take the time for Paul Bunyan Land as the lake was too much fun. Andrew was easy to contact (we never did have a problem though). We will definitely want to come again!
3X RETURN CUSTOMER- LOVE IT HERE
This cabin home is most perfect for our family, we truly do love it here. We have stayed 3 summers here for our vacation and wouldn't want to go to any other lake or home. Miller lake is so peaceful and serene with plenty of beautiful wildlife. The kayaks make it enjoyable to see all parts of this small lake. Dealing with the owners is a breeze. The home has everything you need to "live a normal week", cooking, movies, games, and have a restful sleep in comfy beds.
It's only a few min from Paul Bunyan Land , Brainerd, MilLacs lake. We went to the turtle races in Nisswa, FUN! Thank you so much, it's our perfect getaway! See you next year :)
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We always love having you back. See you next year!
