We chose the vacation home because it is driving distance from our home and it is easy to get to. With 600 feet of shoreline we have plenty of privacy. We also love the lake and the Alexandria area with the sparkling snow in the winter and it is very close to Andes Ski Resort. In the spring/summer the area offers many activities besides golfing, water skiing and fishing. If the weather is not great for water sports or golf we enjoy all the shops in Alexandria including many antique shops. In the fall the trees are beautiful with the color changes and the area is also great for fall fishing and hunting. The Long Lake Hunting Lodge is just out of Brandon, MN, just a few miles from the lake home. These are just a few of the reasons we chose the Alexandria area.

We enjoy walking around the large yard in the morning while sipping our coffee or sitting on the patio enjoying the view of the lake. The lake views from inside the lake home are awesome from most every room in the home. The golf course is two miles down the road and that makes it convenient for the days we want to golf. The golf course also offers breakfast and lunch if you want a break from cooking. We love to water ski, jet ski, tube and fish on the lake. Another highlight is watching and listening to the loons. There are also some bald eagles that frequent the sky and loons on the lake. There are also many more lakes in the area to check out if one desires.

Sharon & Dennis
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family for our vacation rental. You were great to work with.
This was such a relaxing home for our family--plenty of room for all activities, indoors & out. Grounds were beautiful, as well as the inside. Everything in wonderful working condition & very, very clean.
We would all recommend this property to all vacation renters.
Thanks again,
Bev & Mauri

A REAL VACATION GEM!

  • 5 of 5
This hidden place is more like a private resort with the well manicured/decorated "park like" yard. All the birds were fun to watch and to wake up to, along with the fresh morning breezes. It was way above and beyond our expectations from the photos provided. Just as others reviewed, there is plenty of room to have all different age groups meeting at once. We would not have needed to drag along crock pots etc. as the kitchen is very well stocked! The views are breathtaking from anywhere in the house or the yard. The cleanliness of the house was impeccable! Our group was happy that they do not allow pets as we have a few with bad allergies. Owners were very helpful before we arrived answering any type of questions we had. Fishing was good, caught a little of everything, (Northern, bass, crappie, sunfish) and enjoyed frying it up in the outdoor fish fryer they have available. Our weather was on the cooler side, but not much rain so we took advantage of being so close to the bike trail (2 miles into Brandon) and rode to Alexandria and back. About 27 miles round trip, but so nice to come back to the beautiful fire pit just steps from the house to relax that night. There is absolutely nothing we could of needed during our week stay. If you are looking for the best of the best for your family gathering, then look no further. We can only hope it works out for us to come back again. We have rented many times in many states from VRBO, and this one tops the whole list. Thanks again Sharon and Dennis! P.S The guys loved seeing Dennis' garage. I think they were a little jealous to tell you the truth. =)

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had 10 people spend a full week at this house. It was as advertised and actually more spacious than we expected. The master suite is like a small apartment itself! The lakeside grounds are extensive with two fire pits and two docks. The bird feeders brought in many birds, including non-stop finches. (Have to admit the squirrels were pretty entertaining also.) The front lawn is large and also beautifully landscaped. With a "man cave", family room, living room and reading/game room there were many places to either gather or find a quiet place to read. This home is very well cared for and the owners seemed willing to please, but we really didn't have any reason to contact them after settling in. The only thing annoying was the icemaker--noisy and very little ice, but they had warned us of that prior to our arrival.

We found the location of the Central Lakes Trail easily accessible for biking and running. There are a number of golf courses in the area. We also trailered a boat and there were many fishing lakes. It's a quick trip to Alexandria, which has some nice shopping and a nine-plex move theater. Grandma Patty's is a must for breakfast, located only 2 miles away in Brandon. I would also recommend Sixth Avenue Wine and Ale in Alex. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was very nicely furnished and the dining room was big enough to seat the entire family..

I highly recommend this home.

PERFECT HOME FOR A LARGE GROUP.

  • 5 of 5
What a great home! The photos do not do it justice. Excellent space for entertaining - with such a great backyard and quick access to the water. We spent the days laying on the dock warming up in the sun and cooling off in the water. BBQ'ed in the evening with lawn games and board games around the table after dinner. The owners were excellent to work with. Very attentive and quick to answer any questions. You can tell they care for the house and the folks that stay. We all enjoyed the location as well - very secluded but close enough for a quick run to Alexandria. Thank you for a great weekend!!! We're keeping this on our list for future trips :D

FABULOUS SPOT FOR OUR BLACK SHEEP MYSTERY TOUR!

  • 5 of 5
Thirteen ladies spent a wonderful weekend at this gorgeous lake property. The setting is peaceful and quiet, nestled on several acres with lots of trees and great bird-watching. The house is spacious and nicely arranged; lots of room for all of us to visit together or find a spot for a bit of alone time. The pictures do not do justice to this beautiful home - you will truly enjoy the well-kept home and all of the amenities it offers. We did not spend much time outdoors but the lake provides a nice ambiance and there are walking trails on the property. Alexandria is close by so we zipped over there for shopping and a winery visit. The owners of this property are committed to making sure you have a memorable experience, answering all questions and keeping in touch from the time a reservation is made. We'd recommend this to families, a group of frends, or ladies looking for a weekend away.

This home was just as described--beautiful inside and out. We were there for 10 days with 8 adults and 6 children and everyone had their space!! Dennis and Sharon were very friendly and helpful--got the jet ski going for us, moved the paddle boat and replaced the the grill within an hour after we notified them that it wasn't heating and checked in with us to see if we needed anything. We loved the idea of the privacy of the property and the fact that the lake was so quiet.
The only downfall for us, being we had 6 granddaughters ages 17 to 3, was the number of steps to the lake and then no beach at the bottom--the older girls swam and jumped from the dock but the youngest wouldn't go in the water. Fortunately the public beach, which was almost like a private beach, was a short ride across the lake and our girls had a great time in the water there.
This home was the nicest place that we have rented on a lake and Dennis and Sharon could not have been better to rent from. We thank them for the opportunity to rent their beautiful home.
