About the property

House, 4 Bdrm, 2 Bths, (Sleeps 8)

Take the ultimate family vacation at our beautiful home on Lake Brophy, Alexandria – one of the most popular vacation destinations in Minnesota.

Our home sits at the top of a bank, at the end of a cul-de-sac making it private and quiet. There is large front yard for outdoor games and a gas grill for summer barbecues. Inside the four-stall garage there is an extra refrigerator and sink for cleaning fish.

Whether you want to fish or enjoy the lake, Lake Brophy has it all. We have 100 feet of lakeshore with a private dock. You can bring your own boat or rent one locally for fishing, water sports or quiet rides on the lake.

Winter time is a great time to enjoy Alexandria. Lake Brophy offers great ice fishing opportunities, ice skating or cross country skiing, snow mobile trails and more.

An outlet located at the northeast shoreline of Lake Brophy flows through a chain of small lakes and into Lake Cowdry. These channels are navigable by small boats and afford quality fishing experiences on lightly developed, natural environment lakes.

Gamefish, largemouth bass and bluegill sunfish are abundant, and catch rates are exceptional. Lake Brophy is an excellent choice for anglers seeking fast action and quality family-fishing experiences.

From both the upper and lower levels of the house, the views of the lake are spectacular. On the main level of the home, a fully equipped kitchen opens up to the living, dining and recreation rooms. A deck over looks the lake with a large table and chairs to enjoy the view and enjoy meals overlooking the lake.

The dining room table seats 8 -10 people and there is an island with additional seating. Views of the lake are visible from every angle, with large picture windows going across the entire front of the house.

The recreation room has a full size pool table, electronic dartboard, sitting area and gas fireplace . There are three bedrooms on the main level; two with queen size beds, one two twin beds. There is a full bathroom on the upper level.

The lower level walks out to a large patio over looking the lake. There is a large family room, laundry area, a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed, a walk-in closet and a beautifully tiled bathroom with an oversized shower.

At the lake side is a patio, yard and a sandbox for the kids. A long dock is provided and some of the best fishing has been had off the end of the dock in the early morning or late afternoon.

Our home is located 1/4 mile from a city park with play equipment for the kids. You can access the Central Lakes Bike Trail less than a mile from the house. At the end of the block there is a convenience store and gas station and downtown Alexandria is just 2 miles away.

About The Owner

We have owned this property for over 10 years and have spent many wonderful summers with our family enjoying Alexandria and Lake Brophy. Our children and their cousins grew up jumping off the end of the dock and snorkelling along the shore, fishing, tubing and water skiing from dawn to dusk. It is a wonderful house for large gatherings.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sisters and friends really enjoyed staying at this lovely house. Everything was clean, and it was so spacious. The views from the big picture windows are amazing, we even got to see a bald eagle, up close as he hunted for fish in the lake. The manager was quick to respond to fix a minor issue. Alexandria is a nice town with more to explore than I originally thought, we were busy everyday for the week we stayed there. The Central Lakes trail was great for getting in long walks everyday. Would love to come back and stay here again sometime.

Everything about this place was wonderful except for the many steps and the fact that there was no beach area. The house was spacious, clean, and in good order. The management was very helpful and accomodating. The garage worked great for cleaning fish. The lake was good for fishing. The pool table and the dart board provided extra entertainment.
