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!

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.

Perfect for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Enough space for 13 girls to hang out, sleep and get ready comfortably! We especially enjoyed the spacious living room. This home is beautiful and exactly what you see in the pictures. The owners are great to work with and everything is immaculate! We would highly recommend staying here and can't wait for our next stay!

Lovely lakeside home perfect for women's work retreat!

  • 5 of 5

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about this beautiful home. Furnished with everything you could possibly need with linens and kitchen supplies. The home is perfect for a big group for sleeping as well as common conversation spaces. View is spectacular. Weather was not perfect and we still had an amazing time. We will absolutely be back and plan to get our family and friends up for a trip within the next year. Also, communication with owners was very timely and helpful. Hate to even say how great it was because we want to make sure we can get a reservation again next year!
