Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12, Exceptional lake View

Our 4-bedroom A-frame offers an exceptional view of Lake Darling. You will feel like you are on the water as you gaze out the lakeside windows. This home is as close to the water as you can get. Three tiers of decks provide a wonderful, relaxing hangout. The property includes 900 feet of lakeshore that goes all the way to the channel connecting Lake Darling to Lake Cowdry. The property also includes a double garage.

Lake Darling is the third largest of the eleven lakes that make up Alexandria's Chain of Lakes. On the Chain, you can spend the whole day on the water.

Lake Carlos State Park is just minutes away. This beautiful park offers fishing, volleyball, swimming and miles of hiking trails.

Bring your bicycle because access to the Central Lakes Trail is less than one mile away. This trail stretches 55 miles from Fergus Falls to Osakis and then connects with the Lake Wobegon Trail. These trails are built on an old railroad bed, so the grade is easy for walking, pedaling a bicycle, or rollerblading.

About Connie Hammje

Alexandria is our hometown, but it is a fabulous vacation destination. We live on a farm close to town. We purchased this A-frame on Lake Darling for a dual purpose: a close get-away for us and a vacation rental.

Connie Hammje purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Connie Hammje chose Central

Location was important to us. Being on the Chain of Lakes allows access to 11 different lakes. It is also close to town giving convenience for shopping and entertainment.

What makes this cabin unique

When you are in our A-frame, you feel like you are on a house boat. As you look out the windows on the lake side, it is like you are ON the water, not next to the water.

Great for family time!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect-sized rental for our family of 8 (and a few kids)! We enjoyed being lake-front and the cabin's layout that allowed us to all be together. I gave it 4 stars because the road was a little busy at times and checkout time was early, but overall we had a great time! The host was very accommodating also!

Great Lake experience

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was the right size for our family vacation, we had 6 adults and 2 children. The kitchen was supplied good with all the essentials that you would need. It will be really nice when the basement has a bedroom as we used the air mattress which wasn't the most comfortable...but they did tell us basement wasn't completed yet. We had beautiful weather so the lake was calm, but very weedy. The kids were able to fish off the dock and caught sun fish!! Very fun! Cabin neat and clean but very close to the county road and high traffic. We would defiantly stay again. Great customer service always responded to question immediately.

Owner's Response: Regarding the comment about the weeds in the lake, I just want to clarify that our lake bottom was very clean during June and July. In August the bottom became weedy. We have purchased a tool that I believe will help us keep the lake bottom cleaner as we move into August next year. Guests who stayed during June and July did not experience the weedy lake bottom.

Fantastic "darling" cabin on Lake Darling

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I rented this cabin because we have family who live in Alexandria. The cabin was perfect for us - 180 degree view of the lake every morning (!) and a great layout that provided a bit of privacy for people on the 3 stories. The cabin is compact and very well designed. We plan to stay there again in the summer of 2017! Connie was a great host; we have stayed in other cabins previously in Alexandria and this is BY FAR the best one to date.

Nice Clean Property

  • 4 of 5

It was a delight to have a quiet place to stay. There really wasn't any neighbors present during our stay. The boat lift was new and the dock the was an excellent place to hang out as we took the boat out several times in a day. . We grilled out each evening and ate on the patio. Nearby Arrowhead resort rents boats and jet ski if you need to. We tend to Venture out but will surely stay here again.

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoys using the Central Lakes Trail - which is so close! We love being so near the water, because we do a lot of boating and water skiing. Also, the view from the living room, bedroom, and deck makes you feel as if you are right on the water! It is close enough to Alexandria to make it convenient if you need to make a quick run to get extra supplies. And if you do hit some rainy days, there are lots of indoor activities to do in the surrounding area.

Great Time Had By All

  • 5 of 5

Our family, ten in all, came together in June to share some family time. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of our "home away from home". It was very clean and homey. Everything, and I do mean everything, was provided but our food. There was plenty of room, the view was spectacular, the weather was great! We all agreed we would like to come together again at this property.

I would highly recommend this rental home to any size family. Make plans to come and ENJOY this property on Lake Darling.

Thank you - Brenda Hobbs
