PRIVATE LAKEFRONT WITH BEAUTIFUL SUNRISES

Alexandria Cabin Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, fully equipped lake home

Beautiful, private property at the end of a cul de sac, next to a wildlife preserve. Enjoy swimming from a private dock in crystal clear water. This beautiful lake home with a spacious screened-in porch and patio is only 75 feet from the water’s edge, making it easy to keep an eye on the kids playing in the sand or swimming. The property is approximately 3/4 mile from a boat landing for your convenience. There is plenty of space to spread out in the home, and the large wall of windows allows gorgeous views of the lake from inside the home.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • limited accessibility
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

I grew up in Iowa and spent my summers on this lake with my parents from age 5 until I was an adult. The beauty of the lake continued to draw me back to my parent's cabin even after I was married and had kids. A couple of years ago, my husband and I decided to find our own place on the lake that we will retire to someday. In the meantime, we'd like others to enjoy the beauty of our lakeside retreat.

Pamela purchased this cabin in 2010

Lake Ida is one of the cleanest lakes in the Alexandria area. We love the private, relaxing location. We also love that the home is on a flat lot that allows easy access to the lake - we can sit on the dock, or sit on the patio or porch and still be close to the water. And the sunrises over the water are amazing!

The people in the Alexandria area truly give meaning to the phrase 'Minnesota nice!' Your days at the lake can be as busy or as relaxing as you choose. You can enjoy all of the activities a lake has to offer. Lake Ida is the second largest lake in Douglas County with over 4,400 acres to boat, paddle, swim, sail, or fish. It is a very clean lake and is one of the most desired lakes in the Alexandria Area. If you're looking for a more relaxing vacation, you can simply relax with a good book or puzzle while enjoying the beautiful view. If you prefer to get out and do things, we are only 5 minutes away from hiking trails at Carlos State Park, 10 minutes from several golf courses, or 15 minutes from a live performance theatre, movie theatres, bowling, many restaurants, the Central Lakes Bike Trail, and a quaint downtown shopping district with boutiques, antique stores, and craft shops. Alexandria even offers minor league baseball and the Viking Speedway, if you like auto racing.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the last week in June. It was private and just perfect. Fishing off the dock for the kids was awesome and they had caught some bass before I had the first load in. The screen porch was great and very clean/nice lake. I couldn't have asked for more. I would love to stay here again.

Perfect Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5
We came to Alexandria to play in a local golf tournament and were looking for a lake rental that could accommodate our two families. The home, lake and grounds exceeded our expectations and made for a perfect family getaway. Lake Ida is clean and beautiful and we woke up to bright sunshine daily! We brought up our speed boat and paddle boards and we found calm water for all of water activities. The home was better than advertised and was exceptionally well appointed. (awesome kitchen!) It is a really great place for a big group and the wide open living spaces made it great for cooking, eating together as a group and hanging out. The home was very clean and the sleeping accommodations were cozy and very comfortable. The owners were great to work with and have a lovely lake home. We hope to rent again next Summer! It's a beautiful spot.

The home was beautiful and spacious. We spent plenty of time in the kitchen and were not on top of each other! We loved the two ovens. The yard was immaculate and the lake so clear. The kids enjoyed the sand and swimming. They loved jumping off the dock. The depth of the water was perfect for our 7, 5 and 2 year old children. The porch was perfect for playing late night games. There is absolutely nothing to complain about! We had to do some work, so we just brought a hot spot for internet. The lake was chilly and would've been enjoyed more if the weather had been warmer. It's the perfect spot for floating! There is a great running/walking loop of about 3.5 miles and we were not attacked by bugs like we've been in other places. We ventured out to the nearby winery and then to a great restaurant one evening. We also went to the amusement park one morning and had lots of fun playing mini golf.
We felt spoiled in such beautiful accommodations! Thank you for sharing your lake home with us - it was a true blessing to our family to have the time together in a comfortable, relaxing and refreshing setting.

Lake Ida Lake Home

  • 5 of 5
This was/is an excellent place for a family vacation. The lake home was even better than described. The screened-in porch was a great place for evening meals. The grandkids really enjoyed the swimming and sand beach. The privacy really made this lake home unique. Plenty of room inside and out for the 15 of us. Lake home was very clean and well supplied for all our cooking needs. We couldn't have asked for a better location or place to stay!

What an awesome place for a family vacation. A beautiful home exactly as shown on VRBO, very clean and the kitchen very well supplied with everything you can imagine. WE loved the screened in porch and the large patio to sit on and watch the children play on the beach and swimming. The water is crystal clear and nice sandy beach for the kids to play. IT is very quiet and private. The fishing is great, the grandkids had so much fun catching sunfish. Can't say enough about this vacation home and property, hoping to come back next year.

What a great place to have a family reunion! It was represented well in the listing.The parking lot can easily hold 5-6 vehicles and a boat and the house is just as spacious! The owners went out of their way to provide a clean, well stocked kitchen and the dining tables are massive to hold big extended families. There are ceiling fans in every room with well marked wall switches. The bunks were comfortable and everything was very clean. Our family really liked the reverse osmosis drinking water . There is good fishing to be had off the dock (and everywhere in the lake) and friendly neighbors that check on you if it storms. The cabin itself is very peaceful and private. Perfect for sitting on the patio and watching the sunrise and in the evening relaxing in the screened in porch with your favorite beverage. We loved just watching the grandkids play in the sand by the lake. Hope to come again next year!
