Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Our Family has been coming to the Alexandria area for over 20 years. We were fortunate to purchase a cabin with other family members in 2003. In 2011 my wife and I purchased this property which was built by the previous owners. It was their dream home, lovingly crafted and cared for. We are now the caretakers of this beautiful property. We are happy to share it with you and we hope you discover the charm of life on the lake as we have.

Why Alexandria, MN, USA:
This home is second to none for finish, warmth, amenities and location.
