Gull Lake "Gold Coast" lakefront - Sleep up to 14, Fish, Swim, Boating, Relax, Incredible sunsets
2670 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Leroy
14 Guests . 4 Bedrooms . 3 Bathrooms


Welcome to our latest vacation rental on the shores of main Gull Lake. My wife and I have owned and operated short-term rentals for many years now and we look forward to sharing this incredible property with you. We are also the owners of VRBO property 1126647. A 5-star property located just south of Brainerd on Crow Wing Lake. We have previously worked in the hospitality industry so we understand what guests are looking for. Book with confidence to enjoy the vacation you deserve.

This property features a main house that sleeps 6 and bunkhouse that sleeps 8. Both overlook main Gull Lake in Brainerd, MN. This home sits on what's known as the Gold Coast of Gull (west side so you catch all the breathtaking sunsets). Many homes on VRBO promote their access to Gull - the "Gull chain", Upper Gull, "Gull access"...none of those are Gull Lake so don't be fooled by tricky ads that lead you to think you're getting the true lake experience. Brainerd Lakes Area natives know that there's no comparison to the real thing.

If you're unfamiliar with Gull Lake, it features homes owned by movie stars, lottery winners, professional athletes (like the former owner of this home!) and many others. It's the place to be if you travel to northern Minnesota in the summer.

Guests will enjoy level and easy access to the hard bottom lake, excellent fishing exists throughout the area where you can catch world-class Walleye, Bass and other game fish. You can have a fire in our outdoor fireplace (wood provided) and use a Weber gas grill on one of the large concrete patios. Enjoy suntanning on the massive dock system that is a full 6' wide (unheard of in most areas).

Check-in @ 4pm, check-out at 11am (We cannot accommodate early check-ins during the summer season - Memorial Day thru Labor Day)

> Please view the rental agreement detailing the items we've agreed upon. Dates, number of guests, etc. Included will also be our Rental Rules. It's a set of very basic, common sense based rules that we ask each renter to follow. We are constantly evaluating our policies and rules so they are subject to change prior to your arrival. You will be alerted to any major changes via email.

I don't have a boat, any suggestions?

> Rent mine! I have a gorgeous Avalon pontoon that I rent for $1500/week. Send me a note if you're interested in learning more about this.

What if we have problems during our stay?

> Depending upon the issue, we can usually deploy a maintenance technician in short order. We do have an agreement with a local HVAC company in case you lose heat or air conditioning. They're available 24/7.

**Turnover day is typically Friday. Checkout @ 11am, check-in @ 4pm (flexible arrival dates are possible, email us for info)

If you have questions don't hesitate to send an email. You'll receive a prompt and courteous response.
