About Mark and Anne Reiner
The Reiner Family has lived on Lake Miltona for 13 years and have lived in the area collectively for over 30 years. We enjoy sharing our home with others and have always been pleased with how our guests care for our home during their stay. We welcome families both large and small for their gatherings. We love our neighbors and they will enjoy seeing you vacation here, so we ask that you are respectful of them as well. We cannot allow pets at all since we have members of our family with severe allergies. Of course, no smoking. We will not accommodate bachelor or bachelorette parties.
Why Mark and Anne Reiner chose Leaf Valley
Our home was designed for entertaining at the lake. We come from large families so the home was built to share with others. We hope you will come and enjoy this property when it isn't in use by our family. We have family nearby in case you need anything. This home is relatively new, but was designed to feel like an old time lake home. Hopefully, the minute you enter you will feel like you have stepped back in time and will relax and enjoy the lake as you would have in days gone by. The home features large gathering areas including a great room that opens to the kitchen, a large 11x36 four-season room that can be converted to a scrap booking or quilting area. The kids will love the built in European style bunkbeds! There is also a screen porch that overlooks the lake and is one of the best napping spots in the world. There is a copper clad wood-burning fireplace, deck, large shady lawn and awesome sandy beach. The rental is by the week from June through August and available for 3 day weekends throughout the remainder of the year for retreats. We can accommodate up to 14 quilters or scrapbookers with individual tables, special lighting and more. Lake Miltona is one of the finest lakes in the area known for fabulous fishing, clean water and every kind of water sport. Within a short distance you will find Carlos State Park, bike trails. downhill skiing, antiquing, live summer theatre, many opportunities to enjoy local musicians, an award winning local winery and so much more. Lake Miltona is also known as an excellent ice fishing lake and the snowmobile trail is nearby. The slogan for Alexandria, the neighboring town, is 'Easy to get to, hard to leave.' Come stay and we think you will agree.
What makes this House unique
The things most people love about our home is the warm and welcoming feel the minute they walk in the door. It is new, but has the look and feel of a charming old lake home. The great room provides space to gather for a meal or visit with a small or large number of people around the beautiful copper-faced fireplace which features huge antique beams. There are also lots of places to get away and read a book or just enjoy the summer breeze. Across the road is a picturesque farm with a small lake that provides awesome pictures of sunsets. Out front you have shade, beautiful sunrises and lots of sand. You might even want to bring your boat/pontoon or rent our pontoon and enjoy a leisurely tour of the amazing 5800 acre lake. You can stop by the sand bar where dozens of people gather to play volleyball and mingle in crystal clear water with a sand bottom. Once again, the easy accessibility of this home makes this an easy place for everyone to visit. Looking forward to meeting you

OUTSTANDING COMFORT, CONVENIENT AND SPACIOUS IN EVERY RESPECT!!
You aren't going to find a better set up to have a family gathering! Huge accommodations and property. Private beach with an optional pontoon, charcoal grill and fire ring. Extremely quiet and super comfortable sleeping! The kitchen is stocked better than your house! The owner, Anne, is incredibly prompt, welcoming and overly accommodating! The house was set up with all age groups in mind...high chair, bed rails for toddlers, toys, books and games. We loved the huge center island for visiting with others who were sitting by the wood burning fireplace. Truly, so much space you may lose someone :) Extra fridge in the garage, very large parking and nice cement area for basketball, trikes... The screened in porch just off the sunroom is a bonus!
The weather was a total wash out! Wind, very cold and constant rain most the time! But, having such cozy, convenient, and spacious accommodations allowed us to enjoy a wonderful weekend together filled with great memories, good food and lots of visiting!! I plan to return, and can't wait to enjoy the outdoor space :)
We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed our home! We were hoping for better weather for you all but we sure are happy to hear that even just staying in the home alone without all of the other outside amenities proved to be a wonderful time.
We were very pleased with this rental. We had a total of 16 adults and 4 children at this property the weekend of February 16th. The kitchen was well equipped. The rooms were clean with extra blankets available. The easy access to lake was a plus, allowing several walks to the ice fishermen in our group. The toys and books were a big plus as well as the swing set outdoors for the kids. A few more floor mats by the front door would have been helpful, otherwise we have no complaints and many have said we would come back. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Thanks for a great get away!!!
Everything was great
Everything was great and perfect for us. We are hoping to go back again sometime. We would highly recommend this cabin for a large group
Such a warm and inviting home!
We've been staying at this property for 4 years now, and we would never want to stay anywhere else! There are 24 of us that share the home and we never feel that it's too crowded. Your house is spacious, the property itself is beautiful, and the kids LOVED the new Rainbow Swing set! We look forward to making many more memories here!
We are happy to provide people with a consistent place to stay year after year. We also are happy to hear that the new Rainbow Swing Set has been a hit so far!
Absolutely perfect for a large gathering!
I don't know where to begin with all the accolades I have for this house and the owners, this was a perfect week for us! The house is spacious, comfortable, inviting, and well maintained. If you are looking for a lakefront property for a large number of people you can look no further and book this gem immediately with no hesitation! There are plenty of things to keep the children happily playing from the beach to the play set and all the toys and games inside, as well as quiet areas for adults to get away to read a book or just watch the sunset. I have no desire to ever search for another Minnesota lake destination. This is it!
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad to hear that you all enjoyed the beach, the play set, and the home itself. We are so happy when we hear that people wish to return!
We had a great time at this gorgeous house on lake miltona. Perfect backyard and beachfront to enjoy yard and water games. The owners were very kind and accommodating, I would definitely return and recommend the house to anyone hoping to enjoy lake life with a large group. 5 stars!
We just can emphasize enough how much we enjoy hearing that our home is comfortable for large families! Thank you for your review.
