I grew up on a dairy farm 12 miles from Alexandria and pursued veterinary medicine in St Paul. Spent 2 years in US Army and then 43 years practicing vet work until retirement in 2007. I married my dream wife Aggie, and together we operated our home as a Bed and Breakfast for 18 years, and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality industry as innkeepers. We also purchased a small farm near my birthplace in 1999 and converted it to a native prairie woodland nature preserve. In 2006 we planted our first acre of wine grapes, second a year later, and now have a small boutique winery for guests to enjoy.

We are proud parents of 6 wonderful children and 13 exciting grandchildren who live in Colorado and St Paul.

I live at the Inn in the winter now but will live at our cabin at the vineyards when vacation renters are in the home. Our family is excited about sharing this beautiful home for vacation travelers and preserve the long history of hospitality which this home has provided for so many years.

Florian Ledermann purchased this house in 1995

My wife and I purchased this property in 1995 so Aggie could pursue her dream of innkeeping. All six of our children were adventurous and settled in places we took them on family vacations....leaving an empty nest for us so why not open our home to travelers. Due to Aggie's recent passing, I have decided Vacation Rental will be the best option for this beautiful property.

This home was so well-preserved over the many years when other older homes were bulldozed or converted to apartments, because it was owned by people who really appreciated it's splendor and unique character. For 40 years, Alma Anderson ran it as a Hostess House, hosting teas on the front porch, special dinners for guests, and a meeting place for influential people in town. The house immediately welcomes you when you drive in the circle drive and see the majestic porch and swing. Once inside the front door, you know you have found a very special place to relax, read, converse or just dream about what the walls could tell you if they could talk.

Beautiful home, perfect place for gathering friends or families!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place to stay. A true historical gem. This big beautiful home has old world charm with updated modern conveniences. Each room offers personal privacy with a sitting area and its own private bathroom. The wrap around porch is the perfect place to gather for a glass of wine, a patio meal or to watch the sunset. Within walking distance to many restaurants and cultural activities, this home is convenient for anyone looking to get away and still be close to downtown. Definitely a stay that you'll always remember!

Alexandria is located in the scenic central lakes region of Minnesota with over 300 lakes within 20 miles of town. Many have Public Access and swimming beaches for visitors to enjoy.

Cedar Rose Inn is located in a very historic and well-kept neighborhood with many beautiful homes over 100 years old. Easy walk to many antique shoppes downtown where shoppers can stroll the historic main street enjoying coffee shops, bookstores, museums, and live theatre.

The world famous Kensington Runestone, authenticated stone evidence that Vikings were here 100 years before Columbus, is residing in the downtown museum.. a must see if you like history!

The Central Lakes Trail is the longest continuous paved trail in the US and provides cycling, hiking or nature walk opportunities with new 10' wide path. Passes between many lakes, small towns, and beautiful rolling countryside.

There are two licensed wineries within minutes of the home....Carlos Creek, which offers entertainment, tasting and many good Minnesota-grown wines and Burr Vineyards, a small boutique winery with nature trails, outdoor tasting events and tours by appointment (owned and operated by Cedar Rose Inn owner).

Inspiration Peak, second highest point in Minnesota is only 25 miles North of town....a good place to exercise, picnic and view the Minnesota landscape.

If you like Golf, you are at the boyhood home of professional golfer Tom Lehman, who frequents the Alexandria Golf Course-site of the popular Resorter's Tournament.

Guides are available for anyone wanting to fish the many deep pristine lakes in the area. Or maybe just rent a pontoon or boat and travel the Chain of Lakes for a relaxing summer evening.

Douglas County was settled by a broad mix of immigrants in the late 1800's because it has many of the same topographies of Germany, Scandinavia, England and Ireland all in the same county.
