About CM

We live and work in CA for now but this is our home and your stay here will reflect that care and attention to detail.

CM purchased this house in 2010

Why CM chose Brainerd Lakes

If you are looking for a resort style yet family friendly Up North experience for a big or small group, this is the place. Calculate what it would cost you for more than one family to stay at an area resort and see how it compares to having the privacy and intimacy of your own house for the duration of your stay.

What makes this house unique

6 1/2 Acres. 'Dogtrot' or breezeway with fireplace. 178' of Private Lake Shore and beachfront. This is a private lake. Serene. Typically not very busy. You will be right across the road from the Whitefish Chain of Lakes so if you want more action you can have it within minutes. We have our own landing capable of handling jet ski or small aluminum fishing boats. For larger vessels you can put in numerous places on the Whitefish Chain.

Great family memories!!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin with more than enough space for a large group. The cabin was clean and well prepared for us, and has all of the things you need to enjoy your stay! The lake itself beautiful and quiet.... TONS OF FISH! Easy catches of bass especially, but some northern and perch as well! Great clear water and beach area. The beach area had a lot of grass growing up in the sand but we easily raked it away. We rented a pontoon for the day (very reasonable!) on the chain through Al's Marine. Great service!

This property is immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the cabin itself beautifully built and furnished, but the landscaping is really nice too. We were there three nights and even though it rained most of the time we never got bored because there is plenty to do inside as well as the surrounding area. We bought a bunch of wood for a bonfire and even though it rained it still didn't stop us since there's a really nice outdoor fireplace. The owner was friendly and down to earth from the very beginning and made the experience easy and pain free. I would highly recommend this property and you honestly can't beat the price for what you get.

Impeccable property perfect for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lake home was amazing for our recent winter getaway with our group of four families. Very kid-friendly! More than enough space for everyone to feel comfortable. Sledding, ice skating and cross-country skiing mere feet from the front door. All of us would love to stay here again!

I almost hate to leave this review ...

  • 5 of 5

But, we had an outstanding time! The place is amazing with room enough for everyone and the location can't be beat. There isn't enough stars for this review. It was difficult to leave. I didn't want to leave a glowing review in case we can't get in next time because everything is booked :). We do an annual couples snowmobiling trip every year around Valentine's Day and all 8 of us said we would absolutely stay here again. This is a tough crowd and we've never stayed at the same place twice. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We couldn't have been happier.

Couldn't have been more pleased

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. This is a beautiful home that's obviously very well-cared for, with plenty of space for our entire group of 12. Nice amenities, teenage boys loved the pool table. And a wonderful natural setting. Owners were very responsive and easy to work with.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a family gathering with about 12 people and had an absolute blast. There was plenty of room for everyone and you still felt like you had your privacy due to the size of the house and the different “wings” of the house. The pictures on VRBO are great and all but they really do not do the house justice, it truly is immaculate. There is also a lot of property in the backyard and front yard which is perfect for lawn games, sports, and night games. There is a nice nightlife with restaurants and bars within a mile or so if you want to go out but I was plenty content hanging out at the quiet and secluded home with very little lake commotion which made the stay even more relaxing. The owner was responsive and very easy to work with throughout the whole process and I would highly recommend renting out this house for large or small gatherings.
