Simply unbelievable! To our repeat guest you are in for a vacation surprise of your life time. To our future guest you will be a part of the transformation. Effective May 15th 2014 the main level of this house will essentially be brand new. Entire new kitchen with new cabinets and Granite tops everywhere, Two entirely new bathrooms with granite and tile and showers in each one. One walk in shower about 4 x 6. Many other items, improvements and enhancements. Pictures will be updated on this site upon completion. For those that stayed and are returning you are in for a unbelievable transformation. You liked it before...You will simply be shocked.

“Alexandri-ahhh’... Easy to Get to, Hard to Leave”! Why just settle for just one lake, when you can be on the CHAIN OF LAKES and visit multiple great lakes without leaving the comfort of a boat/pontoon! Come Enjoy Boulder Beach Lodge! For more detailed pictures and information about our lake property on Alexandria’s Chain of Lakes, visit our website at www.boulderbeachlodge. com

Something new for 2013!!! Many of our guests have asked about pontoon availability. We now have a solution for you… a pontoon right out the door located 25 feet to the lake, on an electric lift, under a canopy! No work, no hassle… just plain fun! Ask us about our pontoon availability!

This lake home has a spectacular location on the west side of Lake Carlos in Alexandria, MN. The entire property is extremely private situated at the end of a dead end road. This beautiful lake home is approximately 25 feet from the water’s edge, which makes you feel like you are in a house boat, and has perfect elevation to the beach (a dream for those that frown on many steps and/or those that are disabled). The landscape is unbelievable, complete with LED low voltage lighting along the boulder walls, beach and dock. The grass is perfectly irrigated to keep the lawn in perfect condition. A full beach of sand from shore to way out into the water for swimming! There is a wonderful area for those lake side bon-fires to relax and enjoy the sounds of the waves & loons. You will be amazed by the impressive views!!!

You will also have access to the connected 1.5 acres of land that will allow parking trailers, vehicles, playing ball or any other outdoor activities. In the fall, we have four apple trees on our property that are amazing, and we encourage our guests staying to use the apples… eat a snack whenever or use them for your baking pleasure during your stay! The entire property is defined by a cedar split rail fence, and you will quickly see how much space there is! There is a large dock with the covered pontoon on an electric lift for those that desire, and a bench on the dock for you to sit on to enjoy the view, listen to the loons or cast a line out (fishing is amazing off the dock)! There is another separate dock system that is also available for those wanting to land their own boats. Boulder Beach Lodge is approximately 1/3 mile down the road from a perfect boat landing for your convenience.

In June 2012, we brought this house to the next level! New carpet, wood floors, tile, fresh paint and brand new furniture in living room, dining room, sitting room, new interior decorations AND all brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances were added! In June 2013, we added brand new deck furniture, brand new dishware in the kitchen, and free internet with Wi-Fi including a new computer for our guest’s convenience!

The interior of the home is large with approximately 2000 square feet on the main level alone. The master bedroom is gigantic with 2 queen beds and 1 twin bed. The room off from the master is 10’x10’ with another queen size bed. The last bedroom has 1 queen bed and 1 twin bed. Our living room has a large couch, loveseat, ottomans, 2 lay-z-boys, large screen TV and tons of floor space. The kitchen has a large island, tons of cabinets, refrigerator with ice maker, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and all the items you need. The sitting area off from the kitchen has 2 brand new glider rockers to enjoy the beautiful views of the lake! Our dining area has a brand new full dining room set that sits any large family! The laundry room is also located on the main floor with a large washer and dryer for all your needs, not to mention a view! Inside the same room is a desk that holds the computer with internet and Wi-fi for our guest’s accessibility! There is an attached two car garage for your use that holds a newer refrigerator with ice maker for your overflow needs and a great fish cleaning table! The basement has a pool table for your enjoyment along with another bathroom and shower. For the health of our visitors with allergies, we do NOT allow smoking or pets in our home.

We want you to enjoy our lake home property and have fun exploring the chain of lakes! The activities are endless… Carlos Creek Winery, Casey's Amusement Park, Arrowwood Water Park, Viking Speedway, Kensington Museum, MN Lakes Maritime Museum, many golf courses, shopping center, bowling, many restaurants and much, much more! There is something for everyone's enjoyment!

Prior to your arrival, to make your vacation hassle free, contact us to arrange firewood for your lakeside bonfires, a pontoon available and/or a kayak available, each for an additional minimal fee. Ask us for pricing and details.

Prices are subject to change without notice until rental is booked.

This location is the perfect spot for our needs. We plan to retire here someday.

Explore the Alexandria's popular Chain of Lakes! Fishing, swimming, boating, all water recreation! We love to go from lake to lake and stop here and there to enjoy different views and visit lakeshore restaurants. There is nothing missing from this Minnesota lake spot. We love staying on the quiet dead end road where you end up in the choice spot on the west side of Lake Carlos. We enjoy the closeness to the water’s edge and no large amount of steps to the perfect sandy elevation!

Exceeding expectations

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
During our working career "exceeds expectations" was the goal for our annual reviews. It was hard to attain but always strived for! Our time at Boulder Beach definitely exceeded expectations. The hosts were totally gracious and easy to work with from our very first contact. The home was immaculate and so well stocked. We wanted for absolutely nothing during our stay. Playing games around the large dining table, sharing family meals, fishing and enjoying the large yard kept everyone entertained from ages 1 to 67! We would happily and without reservation recommend this property to anyone desiring a getaway to relax, re-create and renew. It worked great for us.

Wonderful experience! The house was immaculate and well kept! You could sense the pride in ownership as soon as you walked in. We were greeted by the owner Rick. He took the time to share with us the layout of the house, temperature controls, television operation and dock area. Our parents, who are in their late eighties and early nineties, were able to stay three weeks in this lovely home. They greatly appreciated the ranch layout, walk in shower and spacious master bedroom and bathroom. Everything you could possible need was in the well stocked kitchen, even an electric griddle! The house is located within steps of the lake. We loved hearing the water lap on the shore. The beautiful sunrises and call of the loons was an extra bonus. The owners, Rick and Doreen took the time to meet our family and even provided our parents with an anniversary cake and extra treats during their stay. Rick and Doreen were very gracious during our stay. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We felt extremely comfortable having our parents stay for three weeks. We knew if they needed anything or if a problem arose they were in excellent hands. Thank you Rick and Doreen for giving us this piece of mind. We would strongly recommend this property. We have our reservations in for next year! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful lake home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your beautiful review with such kind words! It is so awesome to get to know you and your family. We thank you for choosing our home and are grateful that you are coming back in 2014! Looking forward to it! We are pleased for the chance to have gotten to know you and your family. All I can hope for is that we live a long life, and if we do, the laughs from your parents will inspire us to act like kids! They have such a positive outlook on life! What an inspiration!

We just completed a wonderful month (August) at Boulder Beach Lodge lake home. Each year we think the current year is the best. However, 2013 was super!!! Our guests all raved about the house and it's finishes and the care. The lawn was highly noted - it was very full and lush and green. Everything shows pride in ownership. The owners definitely want their guests to be happy and comfortable - they both are so attentive! It was wonderful to have family and friends visiting . We all were comfortable and had all the accomodations for kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms that we needed. The teens had plenty to keep themselves occupied with the beach, swimming and the pool table. We all enjoyed the pontoon! There were very few days we didn't use it! We came away with neat memories and not ready to leave. That is the case every year - know we are fortunate to be at Boulder Beach Lodge for a month. We will be returning again in August 2014!
