Northview Bank Lends in Brainerd
Brainerd is synonymous with “Minnesota summer vacation.” This makes sense when you consider that it is an easy drive from the Twin Cities and has 460 fishable lakes within 25 miles. This also means an abundance of lake cabins for sale, just waiting for you to carry on the proud tradition of escaping to Brainerd.
The Whitefish Chain of Lakes is a centerpiece of the region. It is comprised of 14 interconnected lakes that run through Crosslake, Pequot Lakes, and Pine River. Just south is the seven-lake Ossawinnamakee Chain.
Gull Lake is very large at nearly 10,000 acres and is one of the most popular lakes in the area. It features many lakeshore cabins and supports a good population of walleye and northern pike.
Pelican Lake is over 8,000 acres of fun with many cabins and a couple of resorts and a youth camp. It offers excellent clarity and a public beach and is popular for both fishing and watersports.
Brainerd’s charms extend well beyond the lake with hiking and biking trails for summer use (including the 112-mile Paul Bunyan Trail and the new 22-mile mountain bike track at the Cuyuna County State Recreational Area) and snowmobiling and cross country ski trails for winter. Hunters will also find lots to like in and around Brainerd as they explore the 33,000 acre Crow Wing State Forest just 20 miles northeast of town.
Golfers will rejoice with 20 golf courses located within 30 miles of Brainerd. And, whether you’re looking for a quick lunch out, an all-American breakfast, or fine lakeside dining, Brainerd has it. If you’re looking for a family outing, check out the Bump N’Putt Family Fun Mini Golf or any of the numerous museums or historical parks.
And of course, Brainerd is an amazing resort community, with all those fishable lakes so close to town.
