About the property

1900 Sq Ft ,3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Lake House On Lake Irene Mn

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

Home features open floor plan with vaulted tongue & groove pine ceilings, a gas fireplace, 6 panel pine doors, log railings, a loft area with bedroom, a master bedroom, two full bathrooms, a family room with sliding glass door to 10'x24' deck, a finished lower level family room with a beautiful pine bar, electric fireplace and finished bedroom. Additional 2nd floor deck. Partially furnished with: washer and dryer, bedroom furniture, couches, and futons. Home also features two car extra large garage (28'x26'). 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.

Single Barrel Ridge!! Amazing Chalet Lake Home Right On Lake Irene

A very spacious and cozy cabin. The layout and sleeping space was perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

Our second annual sister in law weekend was a huge success at Barrel Ridge. It had the perfect amount of space and the layout is perfect for everyone to hang out in one area, or spread out too! It was my second time staying here, and I’ll more than likely be back. It snowed quite a bit during our stay and someone was there to clear the driveway bright and early on the day of our departure so that we could easily pack up and get out of the driveway. The owners are extremely attentive and respond quickly to email or text messages. I highly recommend staying here, and can not wait to go back! (Hopefully in the summer next time)

We rented Single Barrel Ridge for our winter family get away. The place was clean, kitchen was well stocked and the kids loved the toys and games! The owners are easy to work with and communicate well.

Relaxing New Year's family celebration

  • 4 of 5

We planned our family Christmas over New Year's weekend at Single Barrel Ridge. It was a perfect home for the eight adults and two dogs. It was really cold so we didn't get to spend any time outside but that worked out ok since there is so much space in the house. The house had everything we needed for a really relaxing and fun weekend!

Relaxing Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our group of moms to relax for the weekend! First, the view was amazing! Great on-site amenities - fans in all the bedrooms was a plus. Keith did a great job of providing detailed information regarding the home, local things to do, places to eat and grocery stores. The place itself was well cared for and clean. Thanks for sharing your home!

Our cabin is approximately 10 minutes from Alexandria MN down Highway 29. It is also about 10 minutes from Carlos Creek Winery, which is a great place to visit and do a wine tasting! 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.
