Car: Recommended

Alexandria is located in the scenic central lakes region of Minnesota with over 300 lakes within 20 miles of town. Many have Public Access and swimming beaches for visitors to enjoy.

Cedar Rose Inn is located in a very historic and well-kept neighborhood with many beautiful homes over 100 years old. Easy walk to many antique shoppes downtown where shoppers can stroll the historic main street enjoying coffee shops, bookstores, museums, and live theatre.

The world famous Kensington Runestollne, authenticated stone evidence that Vikings were here 100 years before Columbus, is residing in the downtown museum.. a must see if you like history!

The Central Lakes Trail is the longest continuous paved trail in the US and provides cycling, hiking or nature walk opportunities with new 10' wide path. Passes between many lakes, small towns, and beautiful rolling countryside.

There are two licensed wineries within minutes of the home....Carlos Creek, which offers entertainment, tasting and many good Minnesota-grown wines and Burr Vineyards, a small boutique winery with nature trails, outdoor tasting events and tours by appointment.

Inspiration Peak, second highest point in Minnesota is only 25 miles North of town....a good place to exercise, picnic and view the Minnesota landscape.

If you like Golf, you are at the boyhood home of professional golfer Tom Lehman, who frequents the Alexandria Golf Course-site of the popular Resorter's Tournament.

Guides are available for anyone wanting to fish the many deep pristine lakes in the area. Or maybe just rent a pontoon or boat and travel the Chain of Lakes for a relaxing summer evening.

Douglas County was settled by a broad mix of immigrants in the late 1800's because it has many of the same topographies of Germany, Scandinavia, England and Ireland all in the same county.

Year Purchased: 1995

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was so well-preserved over the many years when other older homes were bulldozed or converted to apartments, because it was owned by people who really appreciated it's splendor and unique character. For 40 years, Alma Anderson ran it as a Hostess House, hosting teas on the front porch, special dinners for guests, and a meeting place for influential people in town. The house immediately welcomes you when you drive in the circle drive and see the majestic porch and swing. Once inside the front door, you know you have found a very special place to relax, read, converse or just dream about what the walls could tell you if they could talk.
