About Melanie A. Miller

My grandparents once owned a home on Gull Lake and I spent almost all of my summers their. It's such a special place, that I bought my own to share with my son who is 9.

Although I grew up in a different state I know generations who come back from all over the world to experience the beauty and peace of the Lake. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Melanie A. Miller purchased this house in 2011

Why Melanie A. Miller chose Brainerd

This home is situated on one of the best locations of the lake and has a reputation of a lovely neighborhood. It is on a culdesac and has views of both sides of the lake. Unusual on the lake. When it is calm on the lake on one side, it may be windy on the other.

The house has a beauty that I was floored by than any other property, including my grandparents home.

Beautiful property and fit the needs of our group.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay for our ladies weekend! There was plenty of space. We were bummed we had bad weather as the lake/Beach area looked amazing. I give 4 stars instead of 5 as the stove didn't work. Melanie was great to work with. I would definitely rent again! Would be a great place for kids too.

Adult Girl's Weekend in September

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a girl's weekend and couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. Melanie was a pleasure to work with and available to answer any questions we had prior to and during our visit. The pictures posted do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful! If we return to Nisswa for a girl's weekend in the future, we will definitely stay here again.

Perfect Weekend Getaway With Friends

  • 5 of 5

My 10 friends and I had a wonderful time at Melanie's home on Gull Lake! We arrived on Friday and stayed two nights. The space was so beautiful and had that perfect "cabin" feel. It was my first time up north! The only thing I wasn't prepared for was the iron smell of the water (but I think that is normal!) It was honestly perfect for our group. 2 people slept comfortably on the couches downstairs, however there were 2 air mattresses available for use. The master bedroom was lovely, but before claiming this room, make sure you are okay with two others sleeping right above you in the loft space (which was so adorable). The house is located right on the lake, and we definitely took advantage and made our way down there to throw around the football and walk around. Very much looking forward to coming back this summer. We also took a shuttle to Zorbaz, about a 10-15 minute fun drive. I would definitely recommend this place for a family trip or a weekend getaway with friends! Bring plenty of food and games and you can't go wrong here. Melanie was easy to communicate with and was available to answer all my questions before and during our stay.
