One bedroom Lake Cottage with patio only feet from the water's edge.
About Bayside, LLC
Hello, my name is Dean. I have purchased this property with the idea of retiring here someday. Until then, I plan to share it with my renters. Born and raised in a small town in central Minnesota. I have four daughters and seven grandchildren.
Bayside, LLC purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Bayside, LLC chose Alexandria
I currently live on a small lake and enjoy all aspects of lake living. In planning for retirement, I knew I wanted to continue to live on the lake and wanted the 'perfect' setting: level lot, natural sugar sand beach, chain access, fishing, swimming, skiing, etc. I happened to drive by this property and it met all my wish-list criteria. Despite not being ready for retirement yet, I knew I had to act on it now as properties this good do not come around often!
What makes this Cottage unique
The perfect level lot and natural sand was the selling feature for this property. An added bonus is the perfect location; country feel with city amenities.
Max guests: 4 (sleeps up to 3 adults)

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
The cottage and house were perfect for our family gathering of 9 adults and 2 children. The beach and back yard facing the lake was great! Since there was a dock, we rented a pontoon boat so that we could fish and cruise the chain of lakes. The owner gave us a discount on the cottage since we rented both the house and cottage for the week. Also, communicating with the owner was prompt and easy. Will definitely rent both if our family gets together again in Alexandria...... Thanks
The property was beautiful, house was great, only problem was the water from water heater was hard, yellow water. Found out later by repair man water softener was unplug. Some cloth was "Ruined" by the rusty water when washed in wash machine. Let management know about problem and it was all taken care in a very timely manner.
Thank you for the 5 star rating. I am very pleased to keep seeing these ratings from our guests. It was unfortunate that one of your party must have unplugged the water softner during your stay in the middle of the week and then the softner was not treating the water that caused some of your clothes to get stained. I am so happy that I was able to pay a service repairman to get out immediately to remedy the situation by plugging the unit back in for you to enjoy the remainder of your stay. Also, our cleaning staff worked extra time after your stay to get the stains off all sinks, toilets and showers for our next guests.
Again, thank you for the five star rating and happy that you enjoyed your stay.
I would love to rent this property again. The only drawback for me was bed. It needs to be replaced
Very nice week in Alex.
Another successful family camp fun
Third year our family, of now 12, has stayed here, including the House. Everyone gets a room and bed. The cottage is suited for a couple that wants to get away from the rest of the family if desired. The house accommodations are spacious and you don't trip over everyone. The beach is well suited for the little kiddos to swim and play. The dock is hit or miss for catching keepers (fish), but we managed to do pretty good this year, including a large mouth bass caught by our 5yr old nephew.
VRBO review from our stay 7/23 thru 7/30
Perfect location and accommodations for the two of us. My only suggestion for improvement would be the mattress and bed frame. It was a little rough for a week even for lake cabin bed. The frame made so much noise if made any slight movement. Saying that, I’m really hoping I can book your property next year. Bill and Cathy Froyum.
Hi Bill & Cathy,
Thank you for the positive review. We have never heard any concerns about the bed before this. The frame and mattress were both purchased new for the rental but we will definitely check into it. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you stay with us again.
