Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Clubhouse has 2 bd/2 ba with a full kitchen, living room & deck. It shares a 4-acre wooded lot with a 1 bd/1 ba cabin (rented separately) and tennis court, outdoor sauna & hot tub, stretching/exercise room, & walking trail. One bed is king-sized, one is a full. Plus there's a futon in the living room. A one-room bunk house (3 bunks) available to rent, too. Downtown Nisswa & Paul Bunyan Trail just 1 mile away. DOG FRIENDLY! The house is professionally cleaned between every reservation.

The space
This is a special place we call the Clubhouse -- it's all one floor (no stairs!) and it's great for families with kids or pets ($75 pet fee), business travelers, or a weekend getaway with friends.

The hot tub and sauna are on a deck off the back, and a new tennis court was completed in the summer of 2018 (all of which are shared with any guests in the other cabin).

For larger groups, we have two options:

1). The "Little Cabin" on the property is available to rent, as well, that sits about 100 feet from the Clubhouse. It's a full cabin with 1 bd/1ba, kitchen, living room and porch and is available on a separate Airbnb posting under "Cozy Cabin" in Nisswa.
2). The "Bunk House" on the property is a three-season, one-room building (about 12'x14') that has three bunks. It has baseboard electricity/heat, but no plumbing, and will be available during Spring, Summer and Fall (basically April through October, depending on weather). There's not a separate Airbnb listing for this, so if you're interested, please message me.

Where you’ll be

Nisswa, Minnesota, United States

Our place is in the Roy Lake Heights neighborhood on Roy Lake. There are some incredible year-round homes, as well as seasonal cabins...and is one of the closest streets to downtown Nisswa (less than a mile) that's on the Gull Lake chain. Downtown Nisswa has unique shops and fun places to eat (like Raffertys, A&W, Ye Olde Pickel Factory, Big Axe micro-brewery, Adirondack coffee and others). Winter hours for most places are a little scaled back, but summer hours are wide open. Grocery shopping is best at Schafer's (about 5-7 min drive) or you can go to Super Valu in Pequot Lakes (about 7-8 minute drive). Other great places to eat or visit in the area that are 5-15 minute drive like Grandview Lodge, the Pines Golf Course, Zorbaz, Bar Harbor Supper Club, Lost Lake Lodge, Sherwood Forest and a bunch of others. Craguns, Maddens and other resorts on Gull Lake with pools, tennis, golf, etc. are about a 20 minute drive on the west/south shores of Gull Lake.

Originally from the Twin Cities, my family and I have been going up to Nisswa and the Gull Lake chain of lakes since I was a kid. We love it Up North and hope you do, too!
