STUNNING BRENTWOOD ESTATE: BEAUTIFUL ST. FRANCIS HOME!! INCLUDES 5 BOATS

Alexandria House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom With Gorgeous Lake Views. Sleeps 14.

!! NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS 24 MONTHS IN ADVANCE!!

Brentwood Estate, which was recently featured on Discovery Channel's 'Epic Castles' series, is an incredible 45+ acre property with over 2,000 feet of shoreline. For the first time since Brentwood was built in the late 1990's, this breathtaking property is available to the public to enjoy through weekly home rentals beginning May 31, 2014. This most exclusive residential property in central Minnesota with its immaculately manicured lawns, over-the-top beach, gorgeous floral gardens, and serene walking paths is a true paradise at the north end of Big Chippewa lake. 3-1/2 mile long Big Chip is nearly 100 feet deep and is consistently ranked one of the clearest lakes in Central Minnesota with a DNR rated visibility of 11 ft. WOW! That means you can see the lake bottom at that depth. We can accommodate a maximum of 10-14 people in each of our three full-sized homes. We also have an apartment for 2, and one new suite for 5 (to be completed in September 2014). For destination weddings, corporate retreats, or large family reunions, rent the entire property (up to 43 people) and have it all to yourself. Our various accommodations rent from $895/wk in the fall & spring to $7900/wk during the peak summer months. Check them all out on our website at WWW.BRENTWOODMN.COM

We have a fleet of a dozen golf carts, five boats, numerous canoes, kayaks, paddle wheels, paddle boats, wind surfers, etc, etc that are yours to use for free while you stay with us. You just pay for your gasoline. We also have a fantastic Air Nautique 220 Team Edition wakeboard boat and four SeaDoos available to rent at below market prices.

Our on-site shared amenities are second to none. Just look at the photos!! A gorgeous beach and tanning area with adjacent sand volleyball, shuffleboard court, Rainbow Systems play structure, large outdoor fire pit and seven slip dock anchor the lakeside area of Brentwood.

Wander up to Mary Hill, the 11,000 s.f. main lodge just a few steps from the beach, and enjoy private pool parties in our awesome year-round heated indoor pool & spa. Down the hall find a cozy hospitality/meeting/board game area with a beautiful screened-in porch. Next in line is the wonderful billiard area with a custom Peters Billiards 9 foot professional pool table. Last, but surely not least, in the Mary Hill lower level watch your favorite televised sporting event or a DVD/BlueRay movie in our breath-taking 15 seat theater room. Mary Hill is open 240 days/yr. from 9:30am to 10:00pm.

We did say 45+ acres, didn't we? Spend hours walking on our wonderful paved/groomed paths or sitting in one of the three spacious gazebos on the property. If you are looking for a relaxing escape, spend some time at our Frog Pond listening to the gently splashing water fountain and the birds singing in the nearby trees. Take the kids down one of the forested path to our little school house in the woods complete with a full-sized 'Harriett' the holstein. Play a game of tennis on our beautiful tennis court if you are looking for a good workout. When you're finished enjoying the beach, the lake, or the scenic paths, treat yourself to a well-deserved malt, sundae, or banana split in our unbelievable 50's malt shop where all ice cream treats are less than a buck. The malt shop will only be open daily for a couple hours in the late afternoon or evening.

Brentwood has two truly remarkable outdoor religious areas. The first is a Rosary Path & garden just up the hill from the St. Francis house. The detail that went into planning and building the Rosary Path is truly remarkable. The plants and flowers that line this incredible path add to it's wonderful charm. Each of the stained glass inlays in the path represents a bead of the Rosary. The second is the Stations of the Cross Path deep in the woods at Brentwood. This area of the property is a very special place that all will find incredibly moving and peaceful.

The immaculately manicured lawns, beautiful beach, gorgeous floral gardens, and serene walking paths make Brentwood a true paradise on the north end of Big Chippewa Lake. Come spend the week of a lifetime with us at Brentwood Estate.

ST. FRANCIS (Our largest rental home)

NOTE: SATURDAY CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT ONLY IN 2014, FRIDAY ONLY IN 2015!!

The St. Francis home is a beautiful five bedroom house just west of the main Mary Hill estate. It has a wonderful living space with 25 foot ceilings, a large brick fireplace and a wall of windows facing Big Chip lake with interior furnishings that are spectacular. Its oversized kitchen will easily accommodate your group regardless of size. This house was built in the mid-90's and still has features (formica countertops, etc.) from that time. On the east side of the main level is the master bedroom (king bed) with private bath and sliding glass doors out to the spacious lakeside deck. On the west side of the main level of this home are two bedrooms, one with a great lake view, that share a common bathroom with two separate toilet & shower areas. Again, each of these main level bedrooms have a king bed. Upstairs you will find gorgeous views out to the lake and two nice sized bedrooms that share a common bathroom. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has a queen bed and two twin beds. This house sleeps a maximum of fourteen people. St Francis will have exclusive use of three electric golf carts and will have full access to all the shared amenities that Brentwood has to offer (see the photos and descriptions above). All five of our rental units will have shared use of our five complimentary boats. Since St Francis is the largest of our rental homes, it will initially have the highest priority on boat reservations in the event two rentals want the same boat at the same time. Throughout the week, however, we will ensure that even the smaller rental units get considerable 'boat time'.

During the fall and spring all our homes will be rented weekly but you can contact us for special pricing if you will not be staying all week. Rentals where you will not stay the entire week may be reserved three months in advance of the check-in date.

The owners, Keith & Annette Byman, and their three boys purchased Brentwood Estate the week before Christmas 2013. Keith grew up in west central Minnesota and Annette is from western North Dakota. They spent most of their married lives in northern California, north Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska. The boys all currently live in Omaha and Lincoln, NE and Keith & Annette are thrilled to be back in central Minnesota on their favorite lake.

Keith & Annette Byman purchased this house in 2013

For many years in the late 90's and early 2000's our family rented a small cabin on Big Chip and marveled at the breathtaking estate at the north end of the lake. We would cruise the old Crestliner up near 'the mansion' and marvel at her incredible beauty. Years later we are thrilled to have been able to purchase Brentwood Estate and will be forever grateful to the McLeod family for what they created.

St. Francis is an absolutely gorgeous home immediately adjacent to the main Brentwood lodge (Mary Hill) and all its wonderful amenities. Spending a week on this pristine 45+ acre property will create memories for a lifetime. All the water toys you need to enjoy Big Chip lake are included in your weekly rental. Come stay with us!

PARADISE!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!! AMAZING!!!! Brentwood is simply paradise!!! Words cannot describe this place. It is absolutely amazing!! The pictures of this entire estate cannot even capture its beauty. There is absolutely everything you'd want for amenities, plus more. We had a lot of children and they loved riding on the golf carts, going tubing, watching a movie in the theatre room, the swimming pool, and of course getting ice cream at the malt shop!! The teenage room was a hit too!! Keith and Annette are the nicest owners, renters could ask for. They were so hospitable to us, and were right there if we needed anything. They made popcorn for the movie, gave the kids freezies, and brought all the water toys, and tubes down to the beach for us to use. They are AMAZING owners and truly treated us like royalty!! In 16 yrs of renting places I have never wrote a review, but I had to for Brentwood!! We cannot wait to go back next year!!!! Thank you Keith and Annette for making our vacation so memorable!!

There is so much to see and do right at Brentwood Estate, that this may be one of the few vacations you take and never leave the property other than in one of our five boats (free for our guests). If you do leave the property, Douglas County is bustling from Memorial Day to Labor Day with a major activity almost every week. Take in the Vikingland Band Festival, Alexandria's Art in the Park, the Resorter's Invitational Golf Tournament, the Douglas County Fair, numerous small town street dances, or a host of other events.

Things quiet down a bit after Labor Day but you won't want to miss the fall colors which are absolutely breathtaking.
