About Mary Waste

Our family would pack up and head to the cabin on the last day of school each year, and not return home until the day before school started in the Fall. It is here that my fondest memories of growing up are. Just a short 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities of Minnesota, it is a place that will melt away the ordinary stresses of life with it's quiet 'up North' country atmosphere. The lake is clean and refreshing on a hot summer day, and weekends bring the local cabin-eers up for relaxing, boating, grilling and entertaining family and friends. The sunsets are beautiful, the storms are intense, the evening skies are filled with bright stars and there is an 'up North' quiet not found anywhere near a city for sleeping and relaxation.

Mary Waste purchased this cabin in 1950

Why Mary Waste chose Alexandria

Our family cabin was passed down through the generations. The lakefront is known as the 'Gold Coast' by area residents, due to it's sandy beach that offers safe, rock and weed-free swimming, with Beautiful sunsets and the Lake Miltona Golf Course.

What makes this cabin unique

The views overlooking the lake are incredible! Living room opens up to a large wrap around patio with lots of seating. Two bedrooms offer partial lake views, and if you get an evening with waves on the lake, the sound of the waves are reminiscent of the Ocean. Awaken to the sounds of loons and birds with the peaceful quiet of the North-woods.

Quiet, peaceful place to get away and make some memories with family.

  • 5 of 5
Our family, 6 adults and a 2 1/2 year old all enjoyed our stay------ fishing, nice dock, beautiful lake,kayaks, grilling, relaxing, a trip to the winery very close by,playing games in the spacious living room when it was raining. Nice clean, comfortable beds, great stock of dishes, utensils, and the "extras" not usually provided most places. Great quiet, peaceful place to get away from it all and make some memories with family.

July 2013 Family get-together

  • 5 of 5
My family of 6 adults from California enjoyed a 6 night stay at this lake cabin. It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the beautiful sunsets, which you can also see clearly from inside the cabin. It feels like home to stay in someone's family cabin with all their furniture and decorations rather than to stay in a hotel. It might be a small thing, but it was great to have all the household paper products, dish soap, etc. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, and pots/pans. We enjoyed the paddle boat, the kayaks, the new dock, and the sandy bottom lake. The weather was sunny and beautiful most of the time, but 2 days were cold and windy. On the "bad" weather days there was plenty of room for everyone (plus guests) to be inside, play games, visit, and enjoy watching the weather/wind on the lake. We rented a pontoon boat for 1 day at a local resort. We would rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Barbara! So glad you enjoyed your stay. I am very glad you got to rent the pontoon boat as well! We are happy you could share a little of the place we grew up at and also that you were able to be close to your brother's birthday party! We do like to stock up on as much as possible so travelers don't have to bring a lot of stuff with!
