Lake Alexander is a beautiful 2700 acre lake with 3 islands, two public boat accesses, and is located half an hour northwest of Brainerd, just a few miles west of Camp Ripley, and about 2-3 hours from the Twin Cities. At one time the lake had many resorts around it. This cabin is one of two cabins we have available that are part of the old Blue Front Resort. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Brainerd and yet close enough to take advantage of all the lakes areas offerings.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Family getaway converted to a vacation rental. We wanted to share the wonderful experience it provides on this beautiful lake. Many visitors enjoyed the cabin in the past when it was part of the Blue Front Resort and we wanted to make it available to people again.

Why the Owner Chose Cushing, MN, USA:
Great classic cabin on beautiful, quiet lake. Common area for kids to run and play. Excellent fishing and boating, and close to all Brainerd lakes area has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Experience the quaint lakefront cabin as it was during the resort days, as we have retained the nostalgic elements of this lakeside retreat. Listen to the loons and enjoy the views from adirondack chairs out front. Sleeps up to 6 people (2 on full in bedroom one, 2 on singles in bedroom two, 1 on single in sleeping porch, 2 bedrooms plus sleeping porch total.
