About the Property

Charming Lake Home, Sleeps 20 for your retreat on Lake Miltona, Alexandria Area

This one of a kind, classic Minnesota lake home is available for rent for the first time, beginning in 2015.

The big, beautiful 6 bedroom and 4 bathroom home accommodates groups of 20 with over 4000 square feet of living space and a wonderful 'Great Room' just off the kitchen. The Pillars is ideally suited for family reunions, extended family vacations, and retreats.

Set on the East shore of the lake, you will enjoy the vast lake view and breathtaking sunsets from the many west facing windows.

Outside on the deck you will find a fire pit to enjoy roasting marshmallows and telling stories. Just down to the waters edge is the Boat House which has been renovated and re-purposed to become your own lakeside living room. Enjoy a cold drink in the comfort of shelter while the kids are kayaking or enjoying the paddle board.

The home comes with your own private dock and two boat lifts to accommodate boats up to 3000 lbs. Boat and pontoon rental are available too, just let us know!

Our week long rentals in the peak Summer months offer a check in on Friday of 4:00pm and a check out time the following Friday of 9:00am.

Most of our guests enjoy the opportunity to get away from the noise of everyday life. A quiet evening at the lake can recharge the soul!

In keeping with this thought, we do ask that you respect the neighboring property owners by maintaining a quiet environment beginning at 9:00 each evening or sunset-whichever is earlier. We ask that all of our guests behave in a manner consistent with that of a family environment at all times. Fireworks, discharging of firearms, loud music, loud parties and drug of any kind are prohibited. Unregistered guests and visitors are not allowed. As owners of the property, we care about your comfort as well as our neighbors comfort. We do enforce these rules to ensure that our guests and our neighbors are able to enjoy the lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Steve and Michelle have owned and operated a small, family resort on Lake Miltona for 11 years and have been in the hospitality business since they met over 20 years ago! We have three children and a large extended family. It is our pleasure to provide the well deserved get away you deserve. We strive to make every experience perfect!

Why the Owner Chose Miltona, MN, USA:
The thing we love most about this property is its warm, classic lake home feel. Its been completely updated yet still has the charm of the old lake home. The huge great room provides a space large enough to accommodate the whole group comfortably, yet there are cozy spots to sit quietly and enjoy a cup of coffee and a book as well. The front yard has lots of shade and space to play catch. The back yard is the lake with the most amazing sunsets you can imagine. We realize how important it is to have everyone under one roof. This home provides great gathering spots for the entire group with a beautiful setting on Lake Miltona - the largest and clearest lake in Douglas County!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty of Lake Miltona will provide the perfect vacation spot for your entire family! Gorgeous sunsets, fantastic fishing and tons of opportunities to create lasting memories for all generations! Yes, we are biased, but Lake Miltona is such a wonderful lake. You will be just 10 miles from the town of Alexandria, yet you will be amazed at how quiet the lake typically is. We live just two tenths of a mile away from the property. Although you will enjoy the privacy of your own property, we are close by the assist you with any needs that might arise during your stay.
