Quiet, Peaceful, Quaint and the PERFECT Get-A-Way!
"My husband and I spent 3 nights at this wonderful retreat! We were celebrating our 3rd anniversary and wanted somewhere that we could relax and not be on any sort of time schedule. This was the PERFECT spot. The bungalow is small but has everything you would need and then some! The grounds were just beautiful and Barry and Glen were so very nice and had a ton of information about the lake and all the area's surrounding it. We wanted somewhere really nice to eat for our anniversary and they had a ton of suggestions plus gave us a coupon book to use. The weather was cool and at one time somewhat rainy but we must preferred that over too hot! We did some fishing off of the dock and I actually caught the biggest fish I've every caught! In fact, between the 2 of us we caught 37 fish. We didn't keep any of them but had a fun time catching them. We spent some time in the hot tub one evening which was great considering the cool weather. Alexandria is just a short drive from there and we enjoyed some of the antique and specialty shops downtown. We also took a walk into Holmes City which is less than a mile from the bungalow. We just can't enough about our time there. Thanks so much Barry and Glen. We loved it and very HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxcation!! Mark and Karen"

Perfect large, upscale home for large group or family
"Loved staying in this large, upscale family home and working with Sherry. We had family from the West and East coasts and both young and teenage children. PLENTY of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space. Huge kitchen and eating area with a beautiful deck to watch the sun rise in the morning. Loved eating outside in the evening on the spacious deck. Sherry was a dream to work with. For every question I had her answer would include an offer to assist with booking services. She is truly full service and delightful. Thank you!!!"

"Walhall Retreat was perfect for our family of four. Sometimes when you go on vacation, I find that it takes a day or two to truly let your hair down and relax. Not here! We were able to find much-need relaxation as soon as we arrived. The cabin is well cared for and well-loved. It oozes history, family, love and years of laughter and memories. We live a few states away and weren't sure which of Minnesota's lakes to pick and from there, which house. Well..we happened upon a real gem.
The cabin is cozy so if you are looking for a sprawling place, this may not suite your needs. It was just right for us and had that "throw back" feel that we gravitate toward in a cabin. They have thought of everything - lots of hooks for towels and clothes; a clean/refurbished bathroom; reading nooks with good lighting; shelves filled with books in case you forgot yours; fishing nets; a "Viking Trail" scavenger hunt for kids; and much much more. Our kids loved the loft sleeping area and we loved the separate breezeway off the kitchen for cards after the kids went to bed. If you need/want TV time during your visit, they have you covered. We never turned it on. Between morning walks, games with the kids, fishing all day, trips to Ben's Bait Shop, Larry's Foods and the ice cream shop in town, who had time/interest?!
We recommend that anyone who books here spends a bit of time at the six-lane bowling alley in town and also hits the road to Zorba's on the Lake about 15 minutes way. We do not own a boat and rented "Blue Betty" the fishing vessel for our stay. Again, it was just perfect for our needs. Kurt made sure it was there upon arrival and magically knew when we needed gas.
Can't say enough about our stay here."

"We had a great time with our grown kids and young grandchildren. There was plenty of space to spread out or to gather. The extras such as double towel bars, hampers, and luggage racks in each bedroom were a very nice touch. Having the pontoon was great for both the adults and the kids. The whole home was very well equipped and we especially appreciated the crib, high chair, exersaucer, rainbow play set, toys and books for the little ones. We had a few really warm days so the air conditioner made for much better sleeping. Both runners and bikers in the group took advantage of the nearby Central Lakes trail. Thanks so much for many happy memories!"
