Welcome to the McCabe Cabin on Lake Henry. We call it a cabin, but with 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and over 5000 square feet it really is more of a lake home. Whether you are looking for a place large enough to have a family reunion or someplace intimate enough for a small gathering the McCabe Cabin is the perfect choice.

We started renting it out to friends and family in the summer of 2008 and had such a positive response that we have decided to expand it to off season and more specialized rentals such as scrap booking. Check out the photos and the description in the following pages and contact us if you have any further questions. Thanks for your interest.

Why Owner chose Alexandria Township

We purchased this home in 2005 and have not been able to use it as much as we had hoped so we decided to rent it out during the weeks that we are not there. It's located on a quiet lake within walking distance of downtown Alexandria MN.

                                                        Great place to stay. Our group had a fabulous stay. Beds were comfortable & bedrooms had good light & storage. Even had fans which was awesome for people that like to have them for sleeping. It was well equipped with kitchen pots & pans, towels, games, movies, etc... Owners were very responsive and easy to work with.

                                                        Wonderful place! Great amenities! Easy to work with owner.

                                                        Lynne T.

                                                        We enjoy our stay each year...great amenities and offers a very relaxing feel...

                                                        Great place for a large gathering.

                                                        Mary A.

                                                        This is a super place with lots of space . We had 13 people with enough room for eating , sleeping, and getting away from crowd. It was -30 so didn't get to try out sauna, fire pits or grilling; but there was plenty of games, movies, and books. The town has every kind of shopping too. Only wish there would have been 1 more room with a double /queen for couples, though we could have used air bed or futon. Hope we get a chance to check it out in summer or fall this year. Owner is very prompt at returning coresponces.

                                                        Awesome property with very comfortable accommodations for our family Thanksgiving Holiday party!

                                                        Jon J.

                                                        The property and accommodations met all our expectations and we would gladly return again. We would recommend this property to any family or group looking for a place to get together for visiting and relaxing.

                                                        Family Friendly getaway property

                                                        Edward T.

                                                        Its not easy to find a place that accommodates a larger group and has amenities for all to enjoy. The weather cooperated with us so we were able to have family "outdoor game" time in the spacious park-like property. We were able to have campfires both nights and were thrilled that firewood was included for our use. A very nice set-up that we thoroughly enjoyed - inside and out! If we go back next fall - we will bring our bikes - didn't realize their are many miles of paved walking and biking trails a short distance away - another plus in our book!

                                                        What a beautiful home!! This was an amazing place for my family to stay for my son's wedding.

                                                        Mary S.

                                                        Everything about this home was wonderful. We can not get over the amenities included such as the outdoor water toys & fishing gear. It was like going to our own family's cabin, everything down to the sleeping bags, air beds and all the utensils and small things you need to make a home made meal in the kitchen. It was warm and inviting, not to mention absolutely beautiful!! My family and I want to thank the McCabe family for allowing us to enjoy a wonderful weekend in their lake home while we celebrated my son's wedding. We loved this place and will look forward to more visits in the future. It was beyond my expectations and I 100% recommend this place for anyone visiting the Alexandria area.
