About The Owner

The owners have been offering luxury vacation homes to guests for over 25 years. They take pride in offering high-end accommodations which provide a backdrop for incredible memories.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Alexandria

The Alexandria, MN area offers a great variety of activities and Lake Louise is calm and family friendly. Summer brings water sports, picnicking and relaxing by the beach. Fall color is breathtaking and winter sparkles with snow, cross country skiing and sitting by the fireplace.

What makes this house unique

The owners enjoy having room to seat 10 for dinner, cooking in the gourmet kitchen and having the pontoon and paddleboat available whenever they want to use it. Their family and friends love having lots of space to gather and yet being able to find a quiet place for solitude too.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls weekend at the Haven and had a great time. The house was very clean and well organized. We had everything we needed. Love the open kitchen, dinning and living room it is so cozy. The deck was so nice to sit out and watch the lake and have our coffee and meals on. It feels like home the minute you walk in the front door. We loved it!

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the Haven! There were 12 of us, ranging from age 2-65 and everyone had fun. We really appreciated finding a cabin with a pontoon included, because we used it daily. We heard that other people caught a lot of fish, but we weren't too lucky. The four bedrooms were very nice, and we particularly liked having a full-sized crib (and toys to keep a toddler occupied). The kitchen and living room layout are great for chatting and eating. The owners were very helpful whenever we had questions or concerns. I would recommend The Haven!

Haven Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week at the Haven. There were 12 of us with three babies under a year so the crib, pack and play, high chair, babyseat, exersaucer that were provided with the house were wonderful! Owners were very helpful in addressing any questions and concerns. Would definitely recommend the Haven and hope to come back next year.

Great Lake Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Haven for a long weekend in September. There were 10 guests ages 17-80 and plenty of room for everyone. The house is clean, comfortable, modern and big enough so everyone can have their own space. The landscaping down to the lake is beautiful. The pontoon and paddle boat were awesome. There is a great playground in the back yard as well as horseshoes and we LOVED the fire pit! The owners were awesome to work with and we would highly recommend this vacation destination.

Beautiful, Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at "The Haven" for three nights (06/13/13 to 06/16/13) and we were all impressed with the property. There were a total of 11 of us -- ages 1 to 62 -- and this lake home provided something for all of us!

The written description of the property is very accurate. At the time of this review, the pictures also show a fairly accurate portrayal of the property. (There have, however, been some upgrades...for instance, the deck is no longer wood, as shown, but is now composite and vinyl). The only notable difference I could see is that the dock doesn't look like the one in the photo. There isn't as much sitting space at the dock on the property and there was no floating swim/dive platform. The property itself was clean and well maintained. The owners were very hospitable and available by phone/email to answer any questions that we had.

Pros - Things we loved!
- Pontoon & Paddle Boat included in rental (WONDERFUL amenity!)
- Rainbow Play Set for the kids
- Ping Pong table, basketball hoop, puzzles, books, and other "extras" at the home for us to use
- Full size crib (no need to haul along the pack-n-play!)
- Plenty of bath towels, beach towels, etc.
- Well stocked kitchen (paper plates, paper towels, utensils, cups, etc)
- Top of the line Weber Gas Grill for cookouts!
- Fire pit area between the house and the lake
- Fishing was good (caught northerns, bass, and sunfish)

Cons - Things That Could Be Improved!
- Some of the kitchen pots/pans were "well used" and in need of replacement. We ended up needing to throw away 1 and 1/2 dozen eggs that we had made (scrambled) for breakfast after noticing that the teflon had flaked off the pan and into our eggs.
- Check out time was a little too early (10:30 a.m.) in our opinion. We opted to clean the home ourselves prior to our checking out as the cleaning rate was $25/hr if done by the cleaners, and we were told by the owners that the average cleaning time was three hours. In order for us to shower, get the kids ready, pack our vehicles, and clean the entire home prior to the 10:30 a.m. check out time we had to wake up and "get started" by 6:30 a.m. It would have been nice to have a later check out time (even 11:30 a.m.) so that we could enjoy our last morning together at the home without feeling so rushed to get everything cleaned and get out by 10:30 a.m.

Overall Opinion: We would definitely stay here again. Wonderful owners, well maintained home, great location!

Great vacation place!

  • 5 of 5
We were at the Haven June 12-16, 2011. The weather wasn't great but there is no controlling that! We found plenty to do otherwise. We wanted a relaxing vacation so we went for shopping, movies, extra naps, the kids really enjoyed the ping pong table, something different they don't get to do everyday. The house was spotless. Didn't '"smell" like a lake home like some places do. Big, soft, fluffy towels! When the weather did turn around, the boat was great and we even caught our share of fish. The only negative (and that's because I'm out of shape) was it was a lot of steps from the house down to the dock. Don't want to forget anything and have to make a second trip! Would definitely stay there again.
