About Greg

We built this cabin because we fell in love with Lake O'brien. The cool clean water, wildlife, mature trees and evening fires are some of the features that make our home a wonderful place to "escape" from the stress and daily grind. Sleep with the window open and hear the loons calling in the spring, it is absolutely serene.

Greg purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Greg chose Brainerd Lakes

With 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with plenty of room for family, a workout room and 225 feet of sandy beach, this is the place to go to enjoy your next family gathering. With special prices in the summer, fall and winter, it is the perfect place to get away with someone special for a long weekend and relax in front of the stone fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay, there was plenty of room for all to do their own thing. It is a great place to have our family together in one place. The kitchen is a cooks dream with plenty of counter space to bake or just gather with snacks etc. Our granddaughters had homework to do, the loft was great for that, they could study yet be a part of our conversations. Football was on the TV for the guys and the gals were playing games and baking cake our son-in-laws birthday.

The weather was great for taking family pictures, with the leaves turning it will be a memory not forgotten. We will definitely come back!

Fantastic Girls' Weekend Destination

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed, and clean. Eight women for four nights and we never left! It is even better than the pictures. While the well pump went out on our first evening, the owner was very responsive and had it fixed the next morning. We all agreed we have found our annual destination and can't wait until next year!

You won't find a better place to relax and recharge.

  • 5 of 5

We bring four families (6 adults and 8 children ages 4-12) and there is plenty of flexible space, beds, bathrooms and bedrooms in a beautiful house, facing the lake. Lake O'Brian is fun for swimming, (shallow sand bottom near the shore), a place to relax in the sun and listen to the loons or see an occasional bald eagle. The fishing was good for us, plenty of smaller pan fish near the dock, larger perch and bass in the weeds and several even larger fish trolling. There is a large grocery store, available bait, gas and an amazing ice cream parlor near by. But the most amazing thing is the night. The night sky is amazing.

The Lake O'Brien cabin

  • 2 of 5

The place was a little crowded for the 14th of us but we made it work. Also, a lot of wasp around the house. When they cleaned fish one of my daughters would be there to kill them to avoid being stung. My husband did get stuck in the ear but that turned out OK to. We also were surprised no one mentioned that the garage was not included in the rental. This would have been nice to carry thinks into the cabin instead of running outside all the time. Refrigerate may have been oversized but we had to limit our purchases to as needed because with 7 different families having to made the meals 1 time during the week we ran out of run and also had to buy ice to keep the beer and pop cold. Otherwise fun was had by all. Enough fish caught for a fish fry, enjoyed seeing eagles come out of their nests and catch fish for their meals, loons were out and got to listen to them when close to the cabin. Pontoon was nice except the life jackets were in water so we ended up taking them out and storing them in the screened porch. This was another great family gathering. This was our 10th year of staying on a lake, our Christmas gift to our children. Works great with great memories. Thank you for letting jus share this memory.

Great place to go for a weeks getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a place to stay for a week, you can tell it is going to be great as you drive into the driveway , the house is big and spacious for our whole family and has everything you need as if you were home. The lot wasn't quite so big but still had plenty of room to play games on. We tubed and did some water skiing during the week. the pontoon that came with the cabin was very nice for fishing and just riding around enjoying the lake. We all had a lot of fun. Looking forward to staying there again.

A great place for families to have a wonderful vacation together! Gary & Wendy B

  • 5 of 5

This is a WONDERFUL place inside and out! Super clean and had everything we needed. We had our 3 adult children up with their families and there was more than enough room for everyone to have their own space. A bathroom on every floor was a plus. The lake was so clear and clean. with a nice sandy beach for the kids to swim in. We had a blast!!!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

beautiful home, quiet lake. we had 15 people in home, enough room for sleeping accommodations. We stayed 6/18 - 6/25 2017, was a cool week, so a bit more time in house. Use of pontoon was enjoyed by all, fished from pontoon, but used more often just to cruise lake. All in all, everyone gave the week a thumbs up.

Lake O'Brien is 188 acres, and one of the clearest lakes in the state, with water clarity down to 22 feet. The fishing is great for northerns, bass, walleyes, crappies and sunfish. Skiing, after dinner sunset cruise on the Pontoon or a walk through the mature pine forest are just a few of the attractions. World class golf at The Legacy, The Preserve, Deacons Lodge or the local Crosswoods are available close by. For the shopper, you can visit downtown Crosslake and Nisswa, Christmas Point or Fleet Farm. There are numerous restaurants nearbye, but don't miss dinner at the Riverside Inn and an Ice Cream Cone at Lake Country Crafts and Cones in Crosslake. The wild rice at the Bungalow is outstanding. For you winter enthusiasts, the snowmobiling and cross country skiing are unbeatable!
