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!

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!
Clean, beautiful, easy check in and check out. Highly recommend!
Great house on a great lake!
Perfect amount of space for our three families with kids- we each had our own space but plenty of common areas to come together. The water was very nice and clear and the kids loved playing on the lily pad in lieu of a beach. The house was very nice and clean with great views of the lake. It was a great retreat!
A True Minnesota Lake Vacation
