About Rhett & Katie Marsten
We have owned this property since 2006 and, due to a relocation to Sioux Falls, we are making our vacation get-away available to you for short term rentals. This is the place where we have gone since we first met to now with our two young children to enjoy the finest of Minnesota lakes where you can feel like you're "up north at the lake" while only being 4 miles from downtown Alexandria. The city of Alexandria has so much to offer, during all seasons, with a quaint downtown full of local retailers and restaurants, to downhill skiing, to snowmobile and cross country ski trails, to some of the best pan fishing available on Lake Cowdry - where our lake home resides. We are not property managers, rather we are owners who are renting our home to you and your family to enjoy during the dates we aren't able to enjoy it. We sincerely hope you make memories during your stay in our lake home and want your experience to be a most enjoyable one.
Rhett & Katie Marsten purchased this House in 2006
Why Rhett & Katie Marsten chose Alexandria
Our home is extremely spacious, up-to-date and clean on one of the best lots that Lake Cowdry has to offer. In addition, it is very close to the local Central Lakes Trail (walking, biking, rollerblading, snow mobile, cross country ski) and downtown Alexandria and all of the shopping and great restaurants that Alexandria has to offer.
What makes this House unique
Our lake home was formerly two residences with 2BR, 1BA, full kitchen and living area including washer/dryer on each level. We have opened our home up to a single family residence with 2 attached garages, however, there are still 2 kitchens, 2 sets of washer/dryers and two full dining tables/living room areas which is PERFECT for groups who want to have the kids hang out downstairs while the adults enjoy each others' company upstairs. This home has a walk out lower level out to a level lake lot with a hard sand bottom. The water clarity exceeds 14 feet and the pan fishing off the dock is remarkable not to mention the kayaking in the 2 new provided 10’ kayaks. There's a cozy fire pit by the shore near the hammock strung between two trees on the shore. There are ample chairs and water toys to enjoy (tubes, camping chairs, picnic table, floating rafts, pails, etc) in the shed by the shore.

Great location. Close to local amenities.
Thank you for the review Colleen!
Immaculate, lake property in a great location
We rented this Alexandria lake home for a family gathering. The 1980s home has extensively remodeled, tastefully decorated and with lots of amenities. We appreciated having the two kitchens stocked with all the appliances and utensils we needed to prepare meals. A great location off a county road and just 3 miles to Alexandria was a huge plus as we made at least 3 trips to the grocery store. You cannot go wrong with this rental!!’
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of our lake home! We really appreciate it Joanne! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you’ll come back again.
I would recommend this place to my friends
The house had everything we needed. It was a great stay!!!
Thank you so much for being our guest Julie! We appreciate it and are glad you had a relaxing and enjoyable stay celebrating your sisters 40th birthday! We look forward to hosting you again.
The accommodations were wonderful and spacious for 3 families. We loved the two kitchens, lake and toys at the property. The owners did a great job of having necessities on site. The only (small) con was the property resides on a well-traveled road. In the end though, it did not matter because the backyard was spacious and there was no need to be in the front. Would stay here again!
Thank you for taking the time to share your review Liz! We greatly appreciate it and are happy to hear you had a nice stay at our lake home! Thank you again!
