Why Chad Runge chose Alexandria
Lake Ida is one of the most beautiful lakes in Minnesota. This lake home has everything you need to enjoy the lake and all it has to offer.
What makes this House unique
This lake as an "original boathouse" located right next to the lake. Douglas county no longer allows these amazing boathouses to be built this close to the water anymore per the county regulations for building. As such, we have a property where these structures are "Grandfathered" in. In the photos you'll see the picture of the rooftop deck on the boathouse. It offers amazing, panoramic views of the lake beginning with watching the incredible Minnesota Summer Sunrise. If you're really fortunate, you'll be out early enough to hear the loons talking to one another, and maybe even see the Swan's landing, or fish jumping in the cool foggy morning air. Just down the steps from the boathouse is a brand new paver patio with a built in fire pit, right next to the water! This home is staged and ready for your summer vacation at the lake! Surrounding the house itself is a deck where you can enjoy more of the incredible lake views, or sit and have a beverage while you watch the kids swim or fish!

We, the grandparents, had an absolutely wonderful stay here with 2 of our daughters and their families (6 adults, 5 grandkids ages 6 mos to 6 yrs). The space in the house worked perfectly. We loved the sandpit that was just outside the boathouse and a few feet from the shore. Sounds minor, but the beach towels that were provided were great. The kitchen provisions were totally complete. We loved it!
The property was as described, which for us was perfect! The lovely home was the best vrbo we have stayed in. We had 11 people and the house did not seem crowded at all. The property allows so many "spaces" for people.....quiet times or family gathering space. We all truely had a great time! Thank you!!!
Great location and cabin
We had a wonderful time staying at this cabin. It is very clean and comes with everything you need to stay plus have fun. Property manager is very responsive with all communication. Only gave it 4 stars because AC unit wasn’t working very well so a couple nights were pretty warm inside the cabin.
Beautiful lake vacation site.
We had 13 of our family members staying here and the house was able to accommodate all of us very well. The entire experience was amazing and the kids, and the dogs, really had a great time swimming. The added addition of being able to rent the pontoon put an exclamation mark on the entire experience! The rental process was easy and we were able to get in touch with the owners and property manager quickly and easily. The beautiful lake, the site and sounds of the loons and eagles and the good weather we were lucky to have made this a vacation we’ll always remember. I highly recommend this location for your family vacation.
Beautiful vacation rental!
We had a wonderful time celebrating our 40th Anniversary with our kids and grandchildren at this beautiful lake home. The house was clean, spacious and very well stocked. There was plenty of room inside and out for 7 adults and 2 children to be together or spread out. The outdoor areas are beautiful and was our favorite place to be. Our meals could be outside with plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed the kayaks, paddle boards, lily pad for the kids, and the fire pit for roasting marshmallows. Lake Ida is very clean, and a fun lake to pontoon on. The location of the house was always calm. We were able to see and catch fish right off the dock. Chad was great at the communication before and during our stay. We definitely hope to go back to this wonderful place!
Great spot on Lake Ida
We had a great time at this cabin on Lake Ida. The yard and outdoor deck seating were our favorite. There are lovely views and shade when you needed it. It was an added bonus to be able to use the kayaks, paddle boards and lilly pad. We made use of them all as the weather was fantastic. The cabin was clean and had plenty of space for our 2 families. The large double dock is in great shape and we were able to dock 2 boats easily. The property manager was very responsive and easy to work with. One thing you'll want to have a plan for is your boat trailer as they are not allowed on the road. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
