Amazing chalet style 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 1900 sq ft home on beautiful Lake Irene with over 100' of hard, sandy shoreline.

Huge yard and empty lot next door. Great fire pit with wood provided! It is a beautiful smoke free home that we think you will really enjoy!

Single Barrel Ridge is a ten minute drive from Alexandria, MN and the chain of lakes (Carlos, Miltona, L'Homme Dieu, Darling, Geneva). It is very easy to get in and out of town, and is within walking distance to the local convenience store. It is also only about 10 minutes from Carlos Creek winery, a great place to have some food and enjoy a wine tasting!

We hope you have a blast, get a chance to enjoy the lake and views from the deck, and can't wait to return! We do ask that you do a cursory cleaning prior to leaving. The cleaning fee covers a cleaning crew for 4 hours, time required beyond that will be deducted from the damage deposit $25 per hour required). Also, we have a strict no-smoking policy. If this policy is violated, we will keep the entire damage deposit to pay for the cleaning required to rid the house of the odor.

Pets are negotiable and a $100 pet fee is required. Please let us know when inquiring that you will be bringing a pet.

The minimum primary renter's age must be 25+. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age should we feel it necessary.

Thanks for looking, and if you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask! -Keith and Leah

About Keith Meyer

We are originally from Minnesota and bought the cabin in 2014. We are both active duty service members in the US Air Force, currently stationed too far away to use our cabin as often as we'd like! We make it back a couple times a year with our two little girls but don't want it to sit empty when we are not there. Hoping others can enjoy this amazing property!

Why Keith Meyer chose Parkers Prairie

This lake is very quiet and offers great walleye, northern, bass, crappie, and sunfish fishing. We like that Lake Irene is peaceful and has very little boat traffic! The house itself is only a minute off Highway 29. There is a convenience store within walking distance from the house, and it is only 15 minutes from the town of Alexandria, which has great restaurants, bars, shopping, Carlos Creek Winery, golfing, and lots of other great places to check out!

What makes this chalet unique

We fell in love with the cabin feel of the house, and we think you will too. There are great views from both decks, and great fishing even off the dock. It is an amazing home and we think you will really enjoy it.

Another great stay

Love the privacy. Bedrooms on 3 levels was perfect for our family. Amenities are excellent. Enjoyed the kayaks. Fishing off the dock with the little kids worked just great.

Single Barrel Ridge

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful vacation home on Lake Irene in Minnesota. It's very spacious and has all the amenities. The view of the lake is spectacular and the proximity to other attractions is top notch. We do this type of rental every summer and this one is one of the best.

Another great family cabin weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Single Barrel Ridge is a fantastic place for our annual family cabin weekend. The place is perfect for couples, kids, and pets. Keith is a spectacular host with family on the lake who are ready to drop by at a moment's notice with items like more firewood.

The lake is quiet and relatively clean with a nice area to swim with the kids. The new dock with the ladder is a bonus! I highly recommend this place!

Perfect cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us comfortably stayed for a long weekend. We were impressed how well stocked the cabin is. Can choose to conveniently make meals at the cabin or head into town with many restaurant selections. We enjoyed great fishing off the dock, s’mores at the fire pit and one simply can’t beat the stunning view! Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Well-maintained, roomy, clean, nice dock, big decks, well-equipped newly-built lake home

  • 5 of 5

This lake home fit our family’s needs very well. There was a lot of sleeping space, and the dock area was great for recreating in the water, especially with the kayaks and paddle board as well as fishing. The owners were very friendly and responded quickly to all of our questions.

There are lots of great shops, restaurants and bars in downtown Alexandria. One of our favorites is Zorbaz, which is a Italian/Pizza place with a great bar and atmosphere! Another good spot to check out is the local dive bar, Herbies, in Carlos.
