Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: Our family would pack up and head to the cabin on the last day of school each year, and not return home until the day before school started in the Fall. It is here that my fondest memories of growing up are. Just a short 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities of Minnesota, it is a place that will melt away the ordinary stresses of life with it's quiet 'up North' country atmosphere. The lake is clean and refreshing on a hot summer day, and weekends bring the local cabin-eers up for relaxing, boating, grilling and entertaining family and friends. The sunsets are beautiful, the storms are intense, the evening skies are filled with bright stars and there is an 'up North' quiet not found anywhere near a city for sleeping and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
Our family cabin was passed down through the generations. The lakefront is known as the 'Gold Coast' by area residents, due to it's sandy beach that offers safe, rock and weed-free swimming, with Beautiful sunsets and the Lake Miltona Golf Course.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The views overlooking the lake are incredible! Living room opens up to a large wrap around patio with lots of seating. Two bedrooms offer partial lake views, and if you get an evening with waves on the lake, the sound of the waves are reminiscent of the Ocean. Awaken to the sounds of loons and birds with the peaceful quiet of the North-woods.
