About Vicki Selmecki

Jim and Vicki have been vacation rental guests for the past 15 years throughout the US and Europe. We have been in many beautiful homes, cabins and apartments and now we have the opportunity to share our Lake Home. You will enjoy the best that the Northwoods of Minnesota has to offer.

Vicki Selmecki purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Vicki Selmecki chose Brainerd Lakes

This is the epitomy of "getting away from it all" with the benefit of having major shopping , sight seeing, bike and snow mobile trails, world class dining, golfing and fishing within 10 miles of our home. But why would you want to leave the river?

GIRLS WEEKEND / STRESS RELIEVER! A friend and I booked a long weekend to get away from the stress of everyday life. This gorgeous home is tucked away on a very quiet road. When we arrived the only thing we heard were birds chirping and a squirrel in the leaves. We opened the door and saw the view....it felt like heaven on Earth. The home has everything a person needs plus more. The three season porch is absolutely beautiful and we spent a lot of time on the deck - coffee and cocktails. During the day we went to the unique shops in Nisswa and also went to ZorbaZ restaurant on Gull Lake.... always enjoy that atmosphere. Even though it was a last-minute trip, we were fortunate enough to enjoy the peak fall colors - absolutely gorgeous! Each evening was spent at the house watching the beautiful colors in the sky. We feel very grateful to have had the time to enjoy this beautiful home and setting!

The Gull River Retreat was Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Gull River Retreat was Beautiful. A Wonderful place to stay. We had all the comforts of home with a awesome view of the river. It's a home away from home. We all didn't want to leave. I'd never been to Minnesota now I know I will come back. Thank you Vicki for offering a great home for folks to stay in sure beats the alternative of a boring hotel. We will definitely come back and stay again someday. We had a wonderful time.

Something for everyone!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, CLEAN, well maintained. The lot is pretty and surprisingly private. We truly enjoyed our family vacation; Brainerd Zip Line, The Landing for great dining, Pirates Cove Mini Golf....but mostly.....the cabin, the river and indoor game time.

The kitchen is well stocked, beds comfortable, Paul and the owners were fantastically helpful.

The ONLY down side was river access. It was not easy to launch kayaks, float or swim off the dock. The river is beautiful, however, when out in the boat!

Our week at Gull River Resort

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at this retreat! The house was so amazing! It was very beautiful and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with the basic necessities and much more than we expected. The beds were very comfortable and there was more than enough room for all of us to sit in the dining area for meals and games. The river was great, lots of room for tubing and water skiing. Being bird lovers it was nice to have a good view of them at the feeder. We were also lucky enough to have a few sightings of the Pileated woodpecker's. They are awesome! It was also fun for us to try and keep those persistent squirrels off the feeder. I would definitely recommend this retreat for a family get away!

Our week on The Gull River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, wonderful, relaxing are a few words that describe our week at the Retreat. The Gull River is more like a lake. It is very peaceful and quiet. The place was sparkling clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. The porch was a great place to hang out. The master bedroom was so comfortable and I loved the blanket so much that I went to Costco to get one!!! (The twin beds were advertise as being able to put together, but the other furniture in the room prevented this from happening). There is plenty to do in the area - we golfed at the Preserve and the Reversible 9 at Cragun's. 20 minutes away from Nisswa - a cute little town with lots of shopping and 2 brewery's. Dinner at the Classic at Maddens is always good (a 10 minute car ride). Grocery stores, Target and Costco are close by. We so enjoyed watching the birds at the bird feeder and had fun keeping the squirrels off. Can't wait to reserve it for next summer!!! Thanks so much!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We love the birds (squirrels not so much!) too! I've updated the listing to reflect that there are two twins. We really appreciate the feedback!
