Property description

“Alexandri-ahhh’... Easy to Get to, Hard to Leave”! Simply unbelievable! To our repeat guests, you are in for a vacation surprise of your life time! To our future guests, you will be a part of the transformation! Effective 5/15/2014 the main level of this house will essentially be brand new! Entire new kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter tops everywhere. One bathroom has been completely remodeled with granite counters, tile, shower, new cabinets and towels. The master bathroom has a brand new 4x7 walk-in shower with beautiful new tile and unique features! There are MANY other items, improvements and enhancements done for our guests’ enjoyment… new beds, new mattresses, new sheets & pillows, new comforters, the entire house has been repainted, new wall decorations, new large screen television, new computer with internet availability, PLUS MORE! For those that are returning, you are in for an unbelievable transformation! You loved it before...You will simply be shocked now!

Why just settle for just one lake, when you can be on the CHAIN OF LAKES and visit multiple great lakes without leaving the comfort of a boat/pontoon! Come Enjoy Boulder Beach Lodge! We have a pontoon available right at your fingertips on an electric lift with a canopy! No work, no hassle, just plain fun! Ask us about our pontoon availability! For more detailed pictures and information about our lake property on Alexandria’s Chain of Lakes, visit our website at www.boulderbeachlodge. com

This lake home has a spectacular location on the west side of Lake Carlos in Alexandria, MN. The entire property is extremely private situated at the end of a dead end road. This beautiful lake home is approximately 25 feet from the water’s edge, which makes you feel like you are in a house boat, and has perfect elevation to the beach (a dream for those that frown on many steps and/or those that struggle or are disabled). The landscape is unbelievable, complete with LED low voltage lighting along the boulder walls, beach and dock. The grass is perfectly irrigated to keep the lawn in perfect condition. A full beach of sand from shore to way out into the water for swimming! There is a wonderful area for those lake side bon-fires to relax and enjoy the sounds of the waves & loons. You will be amazed by the impressive views!!!

You will also have access to the connected 1.5 acres of land that will allow parking trailers, vehicles, playing ball or any other outdoor activities. In the fall, we have four apple trees on our property that are amazing, and we encourage our guests staying to use the apples… eat a snack whenever or use them for your baking pleasure during your stay! The entire property is defined by a cedar split rail fence, and you will quickly see how much space there is! There is a large dock with the covered pontoon on an electric lift for those that desire, and a bench on the dock for you to sit on to enjoy the view, listen to the loons or cast a line out (fishing is amazing off the dock)! There is another separate dock system that is also available for those wanting to land their own boats. Boulder Beach Lodge is approximately 1/3 mile down the road from a perfect boat landing for your convenience.

In June 2012, we brought this house to the next level with new carpet, wood floors, tile and brand new furniture in living room, dining room, sitting room, new interior decorations AND all brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances were added! In June 2013, we added brand new deck furniture, brand new dishware in the kitchen, and free internet with Wi-Fi including a new computer for our guest’s convenience! NOW… this March-May of 2014, we remodeled this home to the max. You will love the space and beauty!

The interior of the home is large with approximately 2000 square feet on the main level alone. The master bedroom is gigantic with 2 brand new queen beds and 1 twin bed with new mattresses, pillows, linen, and a new television. The room off from the master is 10’x10’ with another brand new queen size bed with new pillows and linens. The last bedroom has 1 brand new queen bed and 1 twin bed with brand new mattresses, pillows and linens. Our living room has a large couch, loveseat, ottomans, 2 lay-z-boys, NEW large screen TV and tons of floor space. The kitchen has a large island, tons of cabinets, refrigerator with ice maker, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and all the items you need. The sitting area off from the kitchen has new glider rockers to enjoy the beautiful views of the lake! Our dining area has a new full dining room set that sits any large family! The laundry room is also located on the main floor with a large washer and dryer for all your needs, not to mention a view! Inside the same room is a desk that holds the computer with internet and Wi-Fi for our guest’s accessibility! There is an attached two car garage for your use that holds a newer refrigerator with ice maker for your overflow needs and a great fish cleaning table! The basement has a pool table for your enjoyment along with another bathroom and shower. For the health of our visitors with allergies, we do NOT allow smoking or pets in our home.

We want you to enjoy our lake home property and have fun exploring the chain of lakes! The activities are endless… Carlos Creek Winery, Casey's Amusement Park, Arrowwood Water Park, Viking Speedway, Kensington Museum, MN Lakes Maritime Museum, many golf courses, shopping center, bowling, many restaurants and much, much more! There is something for everyone's enjoyment!

Prior to your arrival, to make your vacation hassle free, contact us to arrange firewood for your lakeside bonfires, pontoon availability and/or a kayak, each for an additional minimal fee. Ask us for pricing and details.

Prices are subject to change without notice until rental is booked. Please give us a call if you have any questions... we look forward to meeting you and sharing our beautiful lake home property with you! We are a local family that is HERE AT YOUR CALL should you need us; no worries about working with out-of-town owners and/or strangers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
This location is the perfect spot for our needs. We plan to retire here someday.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Explore the Alexandria's popular Chain of Lakes! Fishing, swimming, boating, all water recreation! We love to go from lake to lake and stop here and there to enjoy different views and visit lakeshore restaurants. There is nothing missing from this Minnesota lake spot. We love staying on the quiet dead end road where you end up in the choice spot on the west side of Lake Carlos. We enjoy the closeness to the water’s edge and no large amount of steps to the perfect sandy elevation!
