Year Around Beautiful Lake Home on Birch Lake 3 hours from Minneapolis

Our home, our legacy... your playground and escape. Your home away from home. This beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, lake facing and lake shore property sleeps 8-10 comfortably. Spacious and fully equipped open kitchen. Loft suite, 2 main floor bedrooms and bathroom and one bedroom and bath on the lower level. Open floor plan. Very large deck, gas grill and seating for eight or more. Washer & Dryer on lower level.

NOTE: Our nightly rate is based upon 8 guests for your stay. Any additional guests incur an extra charge of $40 per night, per guest, to account for the extra cleaning, linens and towels necessary during their stay.

There is 85 feet of sandy beach and lake shore just steps from the front door. Dock available for securing your boat and fish house for cleaning fish. Birch Lake is incredibly clear and suitable for swimming, fishing, jet skiing, and boating. Bass, Northerns, Walleye, Crappies and Sunny's can all be caught on Birch Lake. The public landing is just 1 mile from our dock.

Birch Lake never disappoints with beautiful sunsets summer or winter. Within walking distance from our home is the beautiful Paul Bunyan State Trail, a multi-use recreational rail trail running between the cities of Brainerd and Bemidji. Named after the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan of American folklore, the trail is the longest continuously paved trail in the United States. Excellent for biking, hiking, in-line skating and snowmobiling.

Hackensack is walking distance from the home and the locals welcome the opportunity to share Mark's Market grocery store, Swansons Bait Shop, weekly meat raffles at the American Legion, the best Hardware store, tennis courts and the central town playground for youngsters. When not on the lake check out Bear Paws Movie Theater just 2 miles away

Walker is just 20 minutes north and is home to many shops and eating establishments. Be sure to check out Chase on the Lake, Northern Lites Casino, the annual Eel Pout Festival and Reeds Sporting Goods.

Winter in this home brings a whole new level of serenity! It is beautiful and quiet. The perfect place to rest, reflect and share comfort food over meaningful conversations, fires on the snow covered beach or fireplace and catching up on long awaited book reading. Cozy and intimate this is one of the most beautiful times of year to celebrate.

5/5 Excellent

Convenient convenient convenient!
On the lake...near the city park...near the bike trail....near the grocery. The house was perfect for our family. The loft was great for quiet reading or a dance party with Alexa!! Everything you needed for water sports or trail riding was there. 4 adult bikes and 2 kids bikes. Our kids loved all the toys and the playroom. It is great for families or adult getaways! Bring your clothes and your food and enjoy the view.

4/5 Good

Family Vacation
This is a great property for a group of family members or friends with ample bedrooms, bathrooms and space to play or relax both indoors and outside. Everything you may need is supplied except your food and drink, and the area has a lot to offer for recreation. We highly recommend Odie’s Place!

4/5 Good

Family Vacation
This cabin was very nice, with lots of room. My family and I enjoyed our stay. The beach area was very nice, with a sand beach, No weeds. Overall stay we really liked, we would rent again. Wished the dock was longer it was pretty short. We rented a pontoon, that took most of dock. Not a lot of room for swimming.

5/5 Excellent

Great property
The house was lively and large enough for 8 adults to spread out. The lake was clear and warm.

5/5 Excellent

Great place. Good Communication with Owner. Place slept 5 adults, 2 teens, and toddlers perfectly. Lake is great for swimming and fishing. Lots of movies and games, great deck. Only negatives were that a couple things we're broken and you are pretty close to neighbors, but the positives far outweigh. Will consider coming back.
