Brentwood Estate, which was recently featured on Discovery Channel's 'Epic Castles' series, is an incredible 45+ acre property with over 2,000 feet of shoreline. For the first time since Brentwood was built in the late 1990's, this breathtaking property is available to the public to enjoy through weekly home rentals beginning May 2014. This most exclusive residential property in central Minnesota with its immaculately manicured lawns, over-the-top beach, gorgeous floral gardens, and serene walking paths is a true paradise at the north end of Big Chippewa lake. 3-1/2 mile long Big Chip is nearly 100 feet deep and is consistently ranked one of the clearest lakes in Central Minnesota with a DNR rated visibility of 11 ft. WOW! That means you can see the lake bottom at that depth. We can accommodate a maximum of 10-14 people in each of our three full-sized homes. We also have a cozy apartment for 2 guests. For corporate retreats or large family reunions, rent the entire property (up to 38 people) and have it all to yourself. Please take note: Brentwood Estate is known for its seclusion and serene grounds. In order to accomplish this private-estate atmosphere, we hold very true to the maximum capacity per house as designated: St. Francis - 14 people, St. Michael - 12 people, St. Anne - 10 people and St. Joachim - 2 people. We may make a small exception to allow small children who are in cribs or pal-n-plays to exceed the maximum capacity, but you must obtain approval through the owners. In those instances were an exception is being made, it will be noted on your confirmation receipt at the time of booking. No exceptions will be allowed unless you receive prior approval. **Minnesota state law requires resort owners to maintain a registry of all guests. Each guest staying at Brentwood Estate will be required to fill out paperwork to comply with this state law. We have a fleet of a dozen golf carts, five boats, numerous canoes, kayaks, paddle wheels, paddle boats, wind surfers, etc, etc that are yours to use for free while you stay with us.

Mary Hill is open seasonally from 9:30am to 10:00pm. We did say 45+ acres, didn't we? Spend hours walking on our wonderful paved/groomed paths or sitting in one of the three spacious gazebos on the property. If you are looking for a relaxing escape, spend some time at our Frog Pond listening to the gently splashing water fountain and the birds singing in the nearby trees. Take the kids down one of the forested path to our little school house in the woods complete with a full-sized 'Harriett' the holstein. Play a game of tennis on our beautiful tennis court if you are looking for a good workout. When you're finished enjoying the beach, the lake, or the scenic paths, treat yourself to a well-deserved malt, sundae, or banana split in our unbelievable 50's malt shop where all ice cream treats are less than a buck. The malt shop will only be open daily for a couple hours in the late afternoon or evening. Brentwood has two truly remarkable outdoor religious areas. The first is a Rosary Path & garden just up the hill from the St. Francis house. The detail that went into planning and building the Rosary Path is truly remarkable. The plants and flowers that line this incredible path add to it's wonderful charm. Each of the stained glass inlays in the path represents a bead of the Rosary. The second is the Stations of the Cross Path deep in the woods at Brentwood. This area of the property is a very special place that all will find incredibly moving and peaceful. The immaculately manicured lawns, beautiful beach, gorgeous floral gardens, and serene walking paths make Brentwood a true paradise on the north end of Big Chippewa Lake. Come spend the week of a lifetime with us at Brentwood Estate. ST. ANNE (So Peaceful You Won't Believe It) NOTE: FRIDAY CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT ONLY!!

It has three wonderful living spaces (sun room, family room, and formal living room with 25 foot ceilings), a large brick fireplace and windows facing nearly every direction. The interior furnishings are spectacular. The kitchen will easily accommodate your group regardless of size.

The third bedroom is on the walk-out level with a king bed and sliding doors to the back yard. Each bedroom has it's own private full bathroom. This house sleeps a maximum of ten people.
