The Loons Nest is a 5 Bed 5 Bath townhome in the Causeway on Gull Resort near Nisswa MN.

It's absolutely HUGE for a townhome at 3,250 Sq Ft with Five Beds and Five Baths. Complete with two master bedrooms!

Newly built in July 2021, The Loons Nest is the perfect home to host multiple families with plenty of space for everyone to spread out over all three levels.

The resort has both indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs and a sauna house at the outdoor pool.  A short stroll down the wooded trail behind the unit takes you past your private fire pit on to the indoor pool building and the Causeway Clubhouse with a selection of arcade games plus ping pong and foosball.

The home rental also includes a dedicated boat slip on Gull Lake.  There is plenty of room for trailer parking in the overflow lot next to our building so you'll have plenty of room to park your boat or snowmobile trailers right at the unit.  If you need to rent a boat there are two options right on-site with YourBoatClub and LakeFunRentals and several others nearby.  You can get anything from a fishing boat or performance tri-toon to jet skis.  There are also many off-site rental businesses where you can get boats or ATVs to enjoy the northland.

This Loons Nest is the personal family cabin of our good friends Eric and Hailey and they have gone above and beyond in furnishing the unit with all the comforts of home and extras to make your stay a step above your typical resort rental.  The kitchen is fully loaded, games and puzzles galore, acoustic guitar, books, maps and all kinds of entertainment for evenings and rainy days. The home also has Six Smart TVs waiting for you to enter in your login info so you can access all your favorite shows and rent/stream a family moving after the sun goes down.

Eric has also gone out of his way to fill the garage with firewood and classic beach cruiser bicycles for you to zip down to Zorbaz on or take across the causeway over to Bar Harbor for cocktails. 

We are set in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes area.  The Location is awesome!
