About Bonnie Brand

The Brand Family has owned Pine Cone Lodge since 1960. Starting as an American Plan resort serving 3 meals a day to guests in the Lodge. With the way family vacation, Pine Cone now has become a group of vacation homes. We are a licensed MN resort. The new homes have replaced the old cabins. We are the third generation owners.

Bonnie Brand purchased this house in 2014

Why Bonnie Brand chose Park Rapids

We bought this property to add to our resort. The land was originally owned by Pine Cone. We needed to sell it in 1993 so we are very happy that we were able to buy it back. It provides a home on its own lots but you still have use of the rest of the resort. .

the home was great.

  • 5 of 5

The home is great layout. Plenty of room, nice three bathrooms. Room in the yard for some games like bags. Sandy shore close enough to watch kids from three season porch. Layout offers quit bedrooms from the rest of the living area. Only knock, the dock does not have cleats or poles to tie boat to it. if you have a large group ask about parking.

Fantastic get-away for girls' weekend

  • 5 of 5

My book club is thankful to have found this wonderful property for our annual retreat. The house is comfortable and generous in size with multiple areas to gather and sleep. We've stayed here twice in recent years and look forward to returning again. The surrounding area is lovely with easy access to the Heartland State Trail and other amenities. The size of the house lends itself to families as well as smaller groups. Our club has seven members and we have ample space. Bonnie always responds to our scheduling questions promptly and has made us feel welcome.
