Families or groups of friends will love the Lodge and Beach Bungalow setting. Five separate bungalows, each with a theme of it's own, are grouped together as a 'getaway' for families or friends. The five homes are brand new and are rented together as one unit.... Bungalow #1: 'Up North' is a one bedroom beach home that is handicap accessible with air conditioning for your comfort and lots of shade trees if you choose not to be lakeside. Bungalow #2: 'The Beach Bungalow has a 'Caribbean' theme with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, all new furniture, a sleeper sofa, air conditioning and much more! Step out your front door and you are less than 50 feet to the sandy beach. Bungalow #3: 'Sun, Sand and Seashells' has two bedrooms, one full size bathroom and a sofa sleeper in the common living area. Yes, this little lakehome is brand new and also sits less than 50 feet from the lake, with outstanding lake views from both the main and upper levels. All new furnishings, air conditioning, and a small patio area allow for eating lakeside or enjoying your morning coffee! Bungalow #4 was just finished in May and has a "Cottage" theme in an east coast style of lake relaxation throughout. "The Cottage" has two bedrooms, one bathroom, is air conditioned and has two levels for more fabulous views of Lake Latoka! Finally, the 5th Bungalow, also newly constructed is called "The Loony Bin"....yes, the Minnesota state bird is themed throughout this two bedroom, one full bathroom house above the Lodge. This bungalow has a sofa sleeper, AC and a deck for peaceful relaxation. The lower level of this home, called "The Lodge" has ample seating for all guests to gather at one time for a meal and family/friend fun! Washer and dryer facilities are also located in the lower lodge area as well as a bathroom facility! Throughout the property you will find beautiful landscaping with a firepit for the whole group to enjoy while watching the sunset! Enjoy sitting in the sand area or on either of the two docks! A great beach for small children to build their sand castles and wade into the water. A beautiful sandy beach and gradual incline make the swimming great for people of all ages! We also have a pontoon available for your use, as well as paddle boats, paddle boards, kayaks and a canoe! You will want to spend your vacation stay right at Latoka Lodge and Beach Bungalows!

About Judy or Lee Backhaus

We are three couples that went together to purchase this property as we saw it as a perfect setting for larger families or groups of friends. We are a hard working group of friends who have enjoyed creating this unique Bungalow experience for all of you.

Why Judy or Lee Backhaus chose Minnesota

All of us have admired this piece of property for years and finally had the opportunity to purchase it! Level, sandy beach on a beautiful lake, not far from 'the beach' and close to town. Sunsets and sand....we couldn't pass it up!

What makes this bungalow unique

Level to beach, hard sandy bottom, kayaking, paddleboating, fishing or pontooning! Close to town but far enough away to 'be on vacation'!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property! The bungalows are perfect with plenty of space. Very sandy beach and great swimming area. Each bungalow has its own character and uniqueness, words cannot describe how blown away our group was at the beauty of this property. Landscaping and yard were gorgeous and well kept, kitchens and bathrooms were spotless, and our group of 30 slept very comfortably. This weekend at the Bungalows made our Summer!!!

Great Family Get-together

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a few days here at Latoka Lodge and everything about it was fantastic. The bungalows are wonderful and beautifully decorated. The biggest decision was who got to stay in each bungalow. Everything we needed was right there. The outdoor space was beautiful, flowers were fantastic. The little kids really enjoyed the playground area. The beach was clean and sandy, and stayed shallow quite a ways which also was nice for the little ones. The bigger kids and adults had fun using all the paddle boards, paddle boat and kayaks. The patio and outdoor seating areas were great and had enough seating for all, 31 of us stayed. We had family pictures taken and the resort was a perfect back drop. Every single one of us had a wonderful time. The perfect resort for a family get together.

The perfect family!

  • 5 of 5

Latoka Lodge is an absolutely beautiful resort getaway. There were 20 of us for two weeks and we had an awesome time. The bungalows are beautiful and SO well equipped. It was wonderful that each family could have their own house. We were lacking for nothing!!! The outdoor space was incredible with a gorgeous view of the water. The kids spent their days in the water and the lake was so clear and close that we could relax knowing they were always within eyesight. The owners were quick to answer questions or solve any problems we had. It was perfect for our family and we highly recommend it to everyone. We will be back in 2016!!! Thank you for this beautiful place to gather and spend time together.

Perfect Reunion Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of about 22 assorted cousins and siblings found this to be an ideal gathering place. Each family had a private retreat with the 5 cabins, and the lodge area provided a gathering spot to share meals, play games and trade memories and photos. The lakeside patio was refreshing (and there were hardly any mosquitos!) Our hosts, Judy and Lee, have done an outstanding job of providing far more than basic supplies: the lodge kitchen has plenty of dishes, flatware, mugs, wine glasses, cookware, and of course, a 40-cup coffee pot. All the extras such as beverage coolers on the patio, hooks for beach towels outside, plenty of refrigerator space, a fish-cleaning table and freezer, paddle boards and kayaks, etc. made this a fantastic vacation spot. Thank you, Judy, for creating such a welcoming spot for us!

Gorgeous Bungalows/Super Lake-Cation!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this property justice! It was absolutely perfect for our family reunion, areas for the big group and separate quarters for privacy! The beach was sandy and water clear! Definitely coming back!

The Perfect Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We spent time at the "bungalows" this summer with our family and it was amazing! We enjoyed being so close to the lake, staying in clean, new houses and swimming and playing in such a CLEAN lake! My grandparents loved being able to be a part of everything - their "bungalow" was handicap assessable and right on the water. We were close to the town of Alexandria and only two blocks from the public beach - lots to do but our best times were just sitting on the patio by the beach and enjoying the campfire! We highly recommend this property to everyone! It was fabulous!
