If you’re coming to Gull Lake to relax and enjoy yourself, why not make the most of it with a nice long stay? Our Brainerd weekly rentals are just right; they offer the perfect mix of comfort and nature to help you unwind with a weeklong stay. There’s so much to do here in Brainerd!
Your Perfect Rental Home
When you stay for a week or more, the rental home you choose really makes a difference. You don’t want just anything; you want it to feel like home! We offer premium rentals that have everything you need for a great weeklong stay. Enjoy the convenience of a fully stocked kitchen; kick back with your family and connect to your favorite entertainment; admire the gorgeous scenery through your huge and numerous windows! If you’d rather relax outside, communal fire pits are available along the beach in the summer season. Our Brainerd Gull Lake rentals will set you up for success on your vacation.
Things to Do During Your Week in Brainerd
Brainerd is a great place to spend a week or more because there’s just so much to do! If you’re a water person, you already know how much fun you can have on the lake when the weather is warm. You can bring your own pontoon boat or opt for the convenience of renting one here at Gull Lake. Our pontoon rental is actually a tritoon; that is, it’s got an extra tube for added stability while you cruise around on the lake. It can be rented by the day or by the week, and it’s fully stocked with everything you might need for a great lake trip.
Another great lake activity around here is kayaking. Spend a day paddling around and exploring on the water. If you’d rather try something new, consider taking a stand-up paddling lesson, and see the lake from a whole new angle. Or, if you’d prefer more adrenaline with your lake fun, rent jet skis, or get a ski boat and spend the day water skiing!
If you’re looking for fun on land instead, there are so many other activities nearby. Check out some of the area’s premier golf courses, like Pines in nearby Nisswa, which Golf Digest calls the best course in Minnesota. Offering three different nine-hole course options, there’s a challenge for everyone at Pines. If you’re traveling with family, you can still get your golf on; just play a round of mini golf with the kids instead, at Pirate’s Cove.
Feeling adventurous? Try out the Brainerd Zip Line Tour, a 2.5-hour, seven-zipline experience that will have you looking at the beautiful Brainerd Lakes region from a whole new angle. For maximum excitement, finish with the optional 50-foot freefall drop! Otherwise, opt for vicarious adrenaline thrills at the Brainerd International Raceway, and cheer on your favorite race cars.
If you’re more of a nature lover, why not explore some of the area’s great trails? There are numerous awesome rail-to-trail options in the area, many of which connect to the fabulous 120-mile Paul Bunyan Trail. This gem is the perfect place to spend a fun day (or more) riding bikes through beautiful forest and lake scenery, stopping off at little towns along the way for a meal or snack. If you’re looking for a nice gentle stroll, consider visiting the Northland Arboretum and exploring the gardens when they’re in bloom.
Another cool spot, especially if you have animal lovers in your group, is the unique zoo at Safari North. Not only can you see a wide array of exotic creatures, but you can also interact with them much more than at other zoos! You might not have expected this, but here in Brainerd, you finally have your chance to not only ride a camel, but also talk to parrots, pet tortoises, and feed giraffes. Plan a whole afternoon here if you’re traveling with curious children, because they won’t want to leave!
If you’re looking for relaxation instead, Brainerd has that too. Stop by the Jack Pine Brewery and sample some new and creative craft brews. Or just help yourself to some old-fashioned retail therapy: hit the mall in Brainerd, small businesses in Nisswa, or go on an antique hunt in Crosby.
Don’t forget, Brainerd is great in winter too! Ski Gull offers up a host of fun winter activities, including skiing, snowboarding, and tubing, and the area’s many great bike trails are also awesome for both fat bikes and cross-country skiing. Make the most of a winter stay by combining lots of exciting winter sports with plenty of cozy relaxation time. No matter what season you visit in, the possibilities are endless!
