About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Brand New House/Cabin: Available stating in September 2017

We will update this site in the next couple of weeks. This is an absolute unique Shack. The square feet are about 1368 on each level. The lower level is a dolled recreation area with bathroom and shower. The Trapper Shack is located with a "Tree House" view of Lake Carlos. It is on a private dead end road. You will get a dock and pontoon with this rental and full use of the chain of lakes. I will update more information soon. In the winter this will allow access to the chain of lakes, for fishing or snow shoeing or whatever you like. The fire place and coziness of this view and the Old Farm house charm will be a weekend you won't forget. Frankly I wish I could get be here during the snowiest winter ever. Every season at this location will be unique and a one of a kind stay.

Why The Owner chose Central

Private dead end road. Perfect elevation! The view and access to the lake are simply not available at most locations.

What makes this house unique

Explore the Alexandria's popular Chain of Lakes! Fishing, swimming, boating, all water recreation! We love to go from lake to lake and stop here and there to enjoy different views and visit lakeshore restaurants. There is nothing missing from this Minnesota lake spot. We love staying on the quiet dead end road where you end up in the choice spot on the west side of Lake Carlos!

Wonderful Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Boulder Beach Lodge for our Christmas Holiday. The owners helped spread the Holiday cheer with a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations to make us feel at home during our stay. The added touches were unexpected and extremely nice. The house has recently been updated, was very clean, and easily accommodated our family of six.

The kitchen and bath were equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The property sits right on the lake, which would be a great benefit in the summer, but did allow us to step right outside the door to do some ice skating. It is conveniently located close to town with only a ten minute drive to the grocery store, but remote enough to feel like a lake getaway.

The owners checked in with us on a couple of occasions to make sure everything was OK. We also owe them our thanks for letting us overstay our time due to wintery weather on the day of our departure, which made travel difficult.

Truly a great place to stay and the owners were wonderful. We highly recommend Boulder Beach Lodge and hope to make it back during the summer to enjoy the unfrozen lake.

A Perfect Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Boulder Beach Lodge was the perfect family vacation. The hospitality provided by the owners was very inviting and made us feel welcome in their lake home. Rick gave us a personal tour of the property and answered all of our questions. The accommodations are new and luxurious with plenty of space to spread out as well as two modern bathrooms.

The lake home sits right off of the lake and the views are simply stunning. With kids ages 2 through 18, there is something for everyone at Boulder Beach Lodge. Our 2-year-old daughter absolutely loved the private sand beach and the crystal clear water. The 10 to 13-year-old kids loved swimming in the water, fishing off the dock, and playing pool. The older kids enjoyed the kayaks while the adults enjoyed the deck and the view. Everyone enjoyed the pontoon, bon fires, s’mores, and spending time together.

We enjoyed Boulder Beach Lodge so much that we have already booked for next year. Can’t wait!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Boulder Beach Lodge! The house is beautiful, updated and very clean. There was plenty to keep the four generations entertained! The beach was perfect for the grand kids as great grandma and great grandpa enjoyed the view from the deck. The pontoon was enjoyed by all of us! The owners are wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. We certainly plan to go back in the future! Thanks again!!

Year Four

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year at Boulder Beach Lodge! What a wonderful family experience for all of us. Our grandsons absolutely love Boulder Beach Lodge, from fishing, jumping off the dock, pontooning, helping Rick with tree trimming, and evening fires. This year we watched a loon convention right off the dock. There were about 9 loons giving us quite the entertainment one morning. Thank you for another fabulous week at the lake. We will see you next year!
