                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  Why the Owner Chose Evansville:
                  We chose the vacation home because it is driving distance from our home and it is easy to get to. With 600 feet of shoreline we have plenty of privacy. We also love the lake and the Alexandria area with the sparkling snow in the winter and it is very close to Andes Ski Resort. In the spring/summer the area offers many activities besides golfing, water skiing and fishing. If the weather is not great for water sports or golf we enjoy all the shops in Alexandria including many antique shops. In the fall the trees are beautiful with the color changes and the area is also great for fall fishing and hunting. The Long Lake Hunting Lodge is just out of Brandon, MN, just a few miles from the lake home. These are just a few of the reasons we chose the Alexandria area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy walking around the large yard in the morning while sipping our coffee or sitting on the patio enjoying the view of the lake. The lake views from inside the lake home are awesome from most every room in the home. The golf course is two miles down the road and that makes it convenient for the days we want to golf. The golf course also offers breakfast and lunch if you want a break from cooking. We love to water ski, jet ski, tube and fish on the lake. Another highlight is watching and listening to the loons. There are also some bald eagles that frequent the sky and loons on the lake. There are also many more lakes in the area to check out if one desires.
