About Laura Schmitz

Property is owned by 2 families that live in the Mpls area. Two of the owners make their professional living in Mpls as builder/renovators as well as interior design.

Laura Schmitz purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Laura Schmitz chose Brainerd Lakes

We started looking for a Lake property last summer. We looked on Gull, the Whitefish chain, and Pelican. Our goal was to find a wonderful cabin/lakehome that was large enough in size to accommodate 14+ people and have that wonderful feeling of sand and pine trees. When it came to a sand beach, Pelican was an easy choice. The sand is beautiful! Totally flat yard makes it great for everyone from young families to Grandma and Grandpa. We were captured as soon as we turned onto N. Pelican Lane and drove down the winding, tree-lined road. The property is almost 1 acre and has pine trees lining most of the side elevations down to the water.

What makes this cabin unique

Our first set of friends that visited the lake house described it as 'Vail meets the Northwoods' The house is extremely warm and comfortable but also very stylish. No expense has been spared to provide a high end resort like expereince. The combination of the sand beach, house, and location are unparalleled in the area. WE hope you love it as much as we do!

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

The lakehouse was absolutely perfect for our girls' weekend getaway. The owners have thought of everything, and we admired every well thought out detail throughout our entire stay. The home is even more beautiful than pictured (if that's possible) and exceeded every expectation!! The view of the lake is hard to beat too -- absolutely stunning property and very well cared for. The owner was wonderful to work with and very responsive to all communications. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!!

SPOILED!!! AMAZING... you won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience! Pelican Pines is a very SPECIAL waterfront home. Our experience and anticipation began months before when I initially contacted Laura to rent this outstanding cabin. Laura was great to communicate with, her response time is very prompt and she was always gracious in answering all of my questions.

My husband and I chose to rent this home based on its location, decor, and amenities. We were not disappointed! The home is EXACTLY as it is in pictures... BEAUTIFUL. It is Vail meets cottage country! We hosted my extended family which consisted of 16 people total, including a baby, a toddler, 3 kids and 11 adults and a teen. The rooms were lovely, very comfortable and so spacious. No one ever felt crowded, you could always find a place to call your own. The main level living area and the lower level living area are wonderful and cozy places to gather. But the delight was the kitchen and dining area. It was divine and perfect... the kitchen made meal preparation a pleasure! We were spoiled by the luxury appliances and cookware!

I should mention the wonderful linens and bedding... all designer and luxurious.

The outside experience is as exquisite as the inside experience! The deck has a beautiful sitting and dining area... the intimate chairs off the master suite were a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the morning sunshine!

The front yard with paved driveway was a great place for the kids to play. The backyard is large, and we had several soccer and baseball games... so much fun! We enjoyed a daytime weiner roast and evenings by the fire pit. The owners have done a great job with the beach, offering many water toys like SUP boards, paddle boat and floats. I would be remiss to not mention the fantastic dock... a super place to sit and enjoy the sunshine and moonlight! The lake itself, is very clean... the water is extremely shallow in front of the beach. Very safe for kids to enjoy... they can walk 150 ft out and still only be in 3 ft of water!

The home has everything you could possibly want or need. Cross Lake and Pequot Lakes are neat little towns. However, it was very difficult to leave the lakehouse, because it's ambience was so enjoyable.

There are so many little details that made our stay exquisite! I want to thank Laura and her team for making our Labour Day weekend stay perfect! Our only regret was that our stay was not longer! We are spoiled, I am not sure how any other rental will ever compare!

Family Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

"This place is amazing" is what I kept hearing from everyone as they walked in during the week we were there. My wife's family reunion was held at Breezy Point so we decided to find a place on the lake for our family (us, 2 daughters, their husbands and our 4 grandkids) that would give us plenty of room and also allow us to have other family in the area stop by and visit. Every picture that you see on the website is exactly how this house looks when you get there. This turned out to be one of the best vacations that we've taken. From booking to getting there and getting in, Laura was extremely helpful. If you're coming to the area and are looking for SPECTACULAR, save your time and stop looking because this is the house that doesn't disappoint.

Everything we were looking for !!

  • 5 of 5

The lake home was absolutely lovely!!

The photos don't do this beautifully decorated cabin justice. The layout is ideal for dinner gatherings.

We had a wonderful relaxing family getaway.

We are looking forward to returning next season.
