About Laura Schmitz

Property is owned by 2 families that live in the Mpls area. Two of the owners make their professional living in Mpls as builder/renovators as well as interior design.

Laura Schmitz purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Laura Schmitz chose Pequot Lakes

We started looking for a Lake property last summer. We looked on Gull, the Whitefish chain, and Pelican. Our goal was to find a wonderful cabin/lakehome that was large enough in size to accommodate 14+ people and have that wonderful feeling of sand and pine trees. When it came to a sand beach, Pelican was an easy choice. The sand is beautiful! Totally flat yard makes it great for everyone from young families to Grandma and Grandpa. We were captured as soon as we turned onto N. Pelican Lane and drove down the winding, tree-lined road. The property is almost 1 acre and has pine trees lining most of the side elevations down to the water.

What makes this cabin unique

Our first set of friends that visited the lake house described it as 'Vail meets the Northwoods' The house is extremely warm and comfortable but also very stylish. No expense has been spared to provide a high end resort like expereince. The combination of the sand beach, house, and location are unparalleled in the area. WE hope you love it as much as we do!

Absolutely Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Pines Lakehouse is absolutely incredible! The house is stunning with luxurious & inviting decor. It was cozy, relaxing, comfortable & perfect. It’s exactly as pictured!! The owners clearly take pride in this house & it shows in every detail. The owners are easily contacted with questions or concerns & are quick to reply, if necessary. The bedrooms are spacious & quiet with luxurious linens. The kitchen is gourmet with every item needed to have a marvelous feast! It is perfectly located just a few hours from the Cities. While we were there in the winter, it is obvious that the lakeshore is close to the house, flat, easily accessed & would be stunning in the summer months. We had such a wonderful time staying at Pelican Pines Lakehouse! I would HIGHLY recommend it!!!!!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect family weekend getaway!! Large enough for everyone to converse & play games altogether or to step away for some quiet time.

Everyone loved the decor, cleanliness, layout & most importantly, the accommodations of a real home. Bring clothes, personal hygiene products, food & games. Everything else is there already.

Laura was a pleasure to connect with & we hope to visit again.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

The lakehouse was absolutely perfect for our girls' weekend getaway. The owners have thought of everything, and we admired every well thought out detail throughout our entire stay. The home is even more beautiful than pictured (if that's possible) and exceeded every expectation!! The view of the lake is hard to beat too -- absolutely stunning property and very well cared for. The owner was wonderful to work with and very responsive to all communications. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!!
