Why Chad Runge chose Alexandria
Lake Ida is one of the most beautiful lakes in Minnesota. This lake home has everything you need to enjoy the lake and all it has to offer.
What makes this House unique
This lake as an "original boathouse" located right next to the lake. Douglas county no longer allows these amazing boathouses to be built this close to the water anymore per the county regulations for building. As such, we have a property where these structures are "Grandfathered" in. In the photos you'll see the picture of the rooftop deck on the boathouse. It offers amazing, panoramic views of the lake beginning with watching the incredible Minnesota Summer Sunrise. If you're really fortunate, you'll be out early enough to hear the loons talking to one another, and maybe even see the Swan's landing, or fish jumping in the cool foggy morning air. Just down the steps from the boathouse is a brand new paver patio with a built in fire pit, right next to the water! This home is staged and ready for your summer vacation at the lake! Surrounding the house itself is a deck where you can enjoy more of the incredible lake views, or sit and have a beverage while you watch the kids swim or fish!

Great getaway home
This home is for sure a five star. The whole property, inside and outside, is very clean and well maintained. Kitchen has all the dishes, glasses, plates,silverware,pots,pans and utensils that you need and sometimes two of something you might need. The best VRBO home that we have stayed in.If you like to watch the sun rise over the water this is the place to be. There is plenty of space inside and outside for a large group of people to spread out if they need to. Chad responded quickly to a question we had and I know would have responded quickly if we had needed him. Rented the pontoon for two weekends and were glad we did. Bob and Brenda (owners) brought the boat over and picked it up twice. It was wonderful meeting them. Will for sure come back to this home again for a very relaxing getaway
This lake is beautiful! The house was as expected from viewing the pictures. It is a large place with all the amenities you could want. Our only complaint was the AC unit went out our first morning there. It got pretty miserable in the house during the day. It’s a good thing we spent most of the day on the water. Other than that, a wonderful place and an exceptional lake.
Great weekend at the lake!
We had 6 couples for a fun weekend getaway and it was the perfect size for us! The lake was beautiful and clean. We loved that they provided the lily pad, kayaks and paddle boards. We also used the firepit one night. Everyone was very impressed with how clean the home was! Beds were comfortable and all linens were provided. Literally everything one could think of was there (except we couldn’t find a pizza cutter ;) ). Great place to stay! We were very happy with our stay and would love to return. Thank you!
Very clean, great location and amenities. Very easy to work with.
We had twelve people at the lake place for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is well maintained and well furnished. The property is a beautiful setting on the lake and the sunrises are fantastic. There are a lot of seating options out side. The water equipment was a great hit for my sons and grandchildren. Having a boat lift was also nice. We also enjoyed the fire pit. We will definitely return in the future if available. Len Wohlman
Fantastic family reunion
All three family’s got to spend time together having a blast. We came with a boat but decided to rent a pontoon also, and the resort down the street was very accommodating. We swam, enjoyed the kayaking, paddle boarding, and the kids loved the Lilly pad. We even caught enough fish for appetizers one night. The house layout worked perfectly. It was like three master suites. Each family took a section and we gathered in the common areas. Upon leaving everyone said let’s do it again next year.
Thanks for allowing us to use your home!
