Beautiful 5000 Sq Ft Lake Home on Quiet Lake in Alexandria

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-15)

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 The Owner chose Alexandria

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.

Family Friendly getaway property

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful lake home!

  • 5 of 5

After almost 50 years of spending vacations in Minnesota, this lake home is by far the best accommodation we have ever had. It is as lovely as described and pictured. Plus everything you need for your stay is already there - linens, towels, dishes, games, whatever you might need to make your stay a pleasant one. The pontoon boat and kayak were used and enjoyed. Only fault we found was that the lake was not really a fishing lake, but otherwise our vacation was relaxing and very enjoyable. Lovely place and exactly as described.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth year we've rented this lake home and have loved it each time! It's beautiful inside and out. There's so much to do outside - pontoon, swimming, kayaking, two bonfire pits, large backyard, etc. The property is well-kept and extremely clean. Our family looks forward to coming here every time and it never disappoints!

There aren't enough words to describe this all-inclusive slice of Heaven. We weren't able to try all that the property and amenities offer, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the property is well maintained and very clean.The owners replied quickly to questions, and were very accommodating. There wasn't anything the property didn't offer, for a stellar week's family vacation! Thank you, Mickey!

Pictures on the website do not do this place justice

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked up the front walk I was falling in love with the cabin charm, but when we walked through the front door, my expectations were exceeded. I was worried that the property might be a little too suburban since it wasn't actually "Up North" as we were looking for the up north feel for our family vacation.

As soon as you walk in the front door, you are greeted with a beautiful home and awesome views of the beautifully landscaped backyard, patios and lake view. The whole back of the house has doors & windows open to the views. The back yard is surrounded by trees on both sides, so it feels very private while being in a quiet neighborhood and just a few minutes away from town, with access to restaurants, shops & retail stores. Make sure you go to the Northwoods Cafe for breakfast or lunch. we went there twice during the week as it was so reasonably priced and the food & service was great!! One of the best breakfasts I have ever had!!

We took full advantage of the dock, kayaks, canoe & pontoon. We fished every day and caught tons of crappie & perch & also caught some sunnies, bass & walleye. This place is so relaxing & there was something for everyone in our group of 14. We really enjoyed the patios and enjoyed multiple family bonfires throughout the week with plenty of outdoor seating for everyone.

Mickey was very responsive as we did contact him with a couple of things during the week. This place had everything & they did provide a list of things they have but I would like to see the owners put together a more comprehensive list of all the amenity items, such as games, personal care items (eg: hair dryers, beach towels) It makes it easier to plan what to pack without having to keep asking the owners as you think of things. I would highly recommend this place if these are the things you are looking for in a vacation cabin.
