  • lake home

    "The home is fully equipped all you need to bring is clothing and food. We had nine people including the children and there was plenty of room to spread out. Great lake view on a huge lake. Small town within a mile has a grocery store and cafes. Really hard to find any fault with this property. We would use it again."

Lots of games for the kids, great dock, to fish or to jump off, lift for our boat, screen porch, fire pit...... We would recommend this any family that would enjoy relaxing, swimming and fishing !! Will definitely come back another year. Thank you MJ and Lola......"

  • Beautiful!

    "Each year four couples get together for a few days. We have done this for 25 years. This year we went to Lake Pointe, as we enjoy the outdoors and thought. Alexandria, Minnesota would be a nice place to visit. When we looked at the website, we knew we were getting a nice house, but when we drove up and actually saw it we were totally amazed. We walked around the house not believing this place was ours for a few days. The outside has a nice pontoon and paddle boat that work well. The yard is absolutely gorgeous, with tables to seat many people along with a smaller table right close by the lake. There is also a fire pit close by the house with chairs there for eight people. We were there in early September and enjoyed the sunrise and sunset outside listening to the loons. At the time we were there, it was very quiet and peaceful since it was off season. You can fish from the dock if you like, but hang on to your rod as the bass will pull your rod right into the water! And that water is cold when trying to retrieve it. We can only imagine how beautiful it is right now with the leaves turning colors! The inside of the house is huge and beautiful! There is a gourmet kitchen with beautiful granite countertops. Everything you need is right there. There is also a large formal dining room and living room. We mostly spent our time in the bright, cheery sunroom playing games or enjoying the outdoors, but believe me, if you need your space, you can find it here. I noticed there are many items available for children, like pack and plays, walker, high chair, rainbow play set etc...so this also would be a great place for family reunions. We loved our time there and in Alexandria. It would be very difficult to think anyone would not enjoy their time at Lake Pointe. The owner was also always available if we had any questions. Loved it!"

  • Ice Fishing

    "This property felt like home the minute we opened the door. It was very convenient to stay right on the lake that we were fishing on although we could have stayed with family. It had everything we would need to enjoy a week stay and the owner was very easy to work with and very helpful. We really had a great stay and would recommend this property for a great place to enjoy the lake."

Alexandria Travel Tips

Alexandria Vacation Rentals: The Perfect Bases for Exploring Minnesota'

Alexandria is in the heart of Minnesota, close to a number of interconnecting small lakes, including Lake Winona, Lake Agnes, Lake Henry, Lake Victoria and the larger Lake Geneva. The historic downtown district has a busy calendar of events, including the Awake the Lakes Festival on Memorial Day Weekend, the Vikingland Band Festival in June, Art in the Park in July, and the Minnesota Food and Wine Festival in September. The town has plenty of small shops and restaurants to meet most requirements.

Things to Do from Alexandria Lake Houses

This flat scenic area is ideal for cycling and hiking with miles of footpaths and bike trails. There are also plenty of antique and specialty shops. The 300 lakes in the area offer great boating and water sports opportunities in the summer. Fishing enthusiasts can catch walleye, bass, perch and panfish, among other species of freshwater fish. In the winter, the area has miles of tracks for snowmobiling, cross country and downhill skiing and the latest craze – snow tubing!

The great outdoors areas are ideal for wildlife and bird watching, especially along the lake's shoreline and wetlands. Sandhill cranes, prairie chickens, buntings, grosbeaks, owls, hawks, warblers and swans can all be seen in the area. Larger wildlife includes wild wolves, bears and moose.

More organized family activities can include a day at the famous Runestone Museum which houses a huge slab of greywacke covered in ancient script, or the newly opened Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum.

Exploring the Neighborhoods Around Alexandria Cottages

The 150-mile long Otter Trail covers many local areas of natural beauty in this circular drive. Head for Fergus Falls, Pelican Rapids, Perham and Battle Lake, where artists often set up stalls showcasing their work. Other beauty spots in the area are the forests and lakes of Maplewood State Park, Glendalough State Park and the panoramic overlook at Inspiration Peak. The historic Phelps Mill and millpond were built in 1889 and make a lovely photograph.

Maple Lake has over 866 acres of spring-fed waters, giving it exceptional clarity. It is ideal for boat trips, swimming, or fishing from the dock.

The Weather and Climate at Minnesota Vacation Rentals

Minnesota is a great place to visit for outdoor activities from late April through October. Summers are warm with temperatures often topping 80 F. There is rainfall in Minnesota all year-round but the wettest month is June. The winter months have heavy snowfall from December to March, with temperatures well below freezing.

Great Reasons for Choosing Minnesota Vacation Rentals

Visitors to Alexandria are likely to be seeking outdoor pursuits, fishing and water-based activities. Minnesota vacation rentals offer plenty of space for storing bicycles, kayaks and other equipment to make your vacation fun. Vacation rentals are usually far better located than hotels, in secluded woodland settings and with lakeside views from their private decks. With your own waterfront home-away-from-home, you can swim and fish from your own dock, grill outdoors and do a host of activities which are not available from a hotel room. Make the most of the indoor and outdoor space offered with a vacation rental, especially for those with children. Best of all, a vacation rental often works out to be much cheaper than comparable hotel rooms, especially if you prepare meals and barbecues at home rather than eating out.

Getting to Alexandria Vacation Rentals

They say "Alexandria is easy to get to and hard to leave" but as far as transportation, it is very easy to reach. The Hector International Airport at Fargo, North Dakota is about 99 miles from the center of Alexandria; the drive is also very scenic.
