When you come to Gull Lake, you’ll want to be as close to the fun as possible! Why not make it a true lakefront vacation, and stay in one of our lakefront vacation homes? Make sure you don’t miss a minute: head straight out the front door and into the water; enjoy spectacular views from your bedroom; bonfire on the beach at night! Gull Lake is Minnesota’s premier lake destination, and your Nisswa lakefront rental will put you right in the middle of the action. Come check it out!
Our Nisswa lakefront rentals have everything you need to enjoy a great getaway. Fully stocked with all the amenities, all you have to do is show up! You’ll find we’ve thought of everything: from linens to Wi-Fi, we’ve got you covered for a great lakefront stay. The best part is, you’re so close to the water! Take your morning cup of coffee outside and watch the sunrise over the lake (if you’re a morning person), step out your door for a swim any time of day, and enjoy romantic moonlit walks on the beach at night.
Obviously, a lot of the fun here in Nisswa revolves around enjoying Gull Lake. You can spend all day just lounging around on the beach, taking a swim here or there. But if you like to get out on the water itself, Gull Lake is a great place to enjoy water sports such as water skiing and sailing. And of course, lots of people come here to fish! If you don’t have your own pontoon boat, you can rent a fully stocked tritoon with room for up to 14, so you and yours can have an awesome day angling and cruising around the lake!
For a day of great exercise and adventure, why not explore the lake at your own pace via kayak? Or, for something new, consider taking a stand-up paddling lesson, and enjoy the view from atop the water. This popular sport is a great workout and a wonderful way to enjoy your time on the water. For those who prefer a bit more adrenaline with their lake fun, you can also rent jet skis and whiz around with your friends!
ON-SHORE FUN IN NISSWA
If you need a break from the lake, there are also a lot of other awesome things to do around the area. There are tons of great trails to hike and bike around the Gull Lake area, starting with the incredible Paul Bunyan Trail. This impressive 120 miles of paved trail winds all through the Brainerd Lakes region, and you could easily spend a whole day just cruising from town to town, stopping at lakes and enjoying the scenery. You can also head over to the Cuyuna Lakes and walk the trail that winds along these interesting lakes that were former mining pits. The Cuyuna Lakes are also a popular snorkel spot, so bring your swimsuit and plan to hop in!
For a more action-packed outdoor adventure, check out the Brainerd Zip Line Tour. It’s much more than just one fun zip line; it’s seven! This 2.5-hour tour is a great way to get a new view of the scenic Brainerd Lakes region, and it ends with an exhilarating (optional) 50-foot freefall experience.
If you’re in the mood for something calmer, you can always play a round of golf at one of the fine courses in the area. Pines is rated the best golf course in Minnesota by Golf Digest, and it’s easy to see why. Their 3 sets of 9 holes each offer fresh challenges for beginners and experts alike, and the friendly staff will keep you coming back for another round.
Need to keep the family occupied? You can’t go wrong with a stop at Nisswa Family Fun Center for a ride down some water slides on a hot day! This small family-run water park is popular with visitors and locals alike, and it offers a fun range of slides to keep everyone happy. With wading pools for young ones, and hot tubs for the adults, there’s something for everyone to enjoy here at Nisswa Family Fun Center.
You’ll also find lots of interesting local businesses to browse in downtown Nisswa. Stop by The Fun Sisters for a quirky collection of “girl stuff,” as their sign advertises. With moderate prices and a great attitude, they’ll help you find your next unique outfit. Head to Loide Oils & Vinegars, a tasting bar for specialty imported flavors that will help dress up your next meal. Finally, when you’re ready for a rest, stop by Big Axe Brewing for some great craft brews that will cap off your day in style.
