About the property

Upper South Long Lake

Don’t miss your opportunity to lounge at the Lazy Loon! Take advantage of an up North experience in our updated, single level, 3 bed/1 bath home with a spacious, open floor plan, and fully equipped kitchen to meet all your cooking needs. Upper South Long Lake is 800 acres of fun, located just 2 hours north of the Twin Cities and less than 10 min SE of Brainerd.

Enjoy full-sun throughout the day and into the evening with our south facing exposure, 100 ft of sandy shoreline, a small sandy beach for the kids, and of course, fishing from the dock will promise to be entertaining. The property’s level elevation, with no sloping or stairs to the lake, make this an easily accessible set up for all ages and abilities. When you are ready for a break from the sun, relax under the large shade trees and enjoy dinner from the deck , while embracing the stunning lake views, the loons, or even an occasional eagle or two! Of course, don’t miss out on evening smores and gatherings around the firepit.

We have you covered for cool, rainy days inside with a variety of board and card games, puzzles, and plenty of family friendly DVD’s. Or, just snuggle in with your favorite book/ magazine in the secluded 3 season porch.

We have taken great pride in this home in the short time we have owned it, and would only hope that the families that consider choosing to share our home will appreciate and respect it as well. We are looking for responsible adults and/or families only please. Absolutely no parties and no smoking allowed!

About Dee and Todd Wietgrefe

Our dream to become cabin owners became reality in October of 2013, after vacationing on this very lake! We are pleased to be able to share with you a part of our dream, in hopes that you too, may create unforgettable family memories.

Dee and Todd Wietgrefe purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Dee and Todd Wietgrefe chose Brainerd

We have done a complete transformation of the interior in our short time of ownership. Everything from a new color scheme in nearly every room to creating a dining room area, and therefore opening the kitchen space, and adding coordinating appliances. We look forward to ongoing transformations as time elapses, but for now, please cozy in and relax.....let the work to us!

What makes this cabin unique

Whether lounging indoors or out, we are certain you won't be disappointed with the breathtaking views of the lake.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Lazy Loon while visiting family. The view was beautiful and the surroundings were very peaceful. We even got to enjoy the big deck a bit in November. The bedroom with two twin beds was perfect for our kids and there was a nice assortment of books for them. Everyone was comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Owners very responsive and we'd stay again!

Perfect family get-away

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! The cabin was perfect for our family and very nicely decorated. My kids loved all the books and toys- which certainly came in handy as it rained a few days during our stay- what thoughtful touches by the owners. The deck and beach area were nice and our kids loved catching fish off the dock! The owners were very easy to work with and responsive to our questions before and during our stay. Staying at the Lazy Loon was a perfect family get-away and we will definitely be back!

We weren't ready to go home & sad to leave the Lazy Loon

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a fabulous place to stay. The home is immaculate, so cozy and well cared for. We prepared most of our meals and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed (pans, utensils etc...). The location is perfect - away from it all, but just a short drive to get necessities. I travel a lot and it takes a lot for me to feel like I am "home away from home", but honestly, this is exactly how I felt. We will definitely be coming back and no complaints whatsoever. You can feel the love that Todd & Dee have for this home.
