About Bayside, LLC
Hello, my name is Dean. I have purchased this property with the idea of retiring here someday. Until then, I plan to share it with my renters. Born and raised in a small town in central Minnesota. I have four daughters and seven grandchildren.
Bayside, LLC purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Bayside, LLC chose Alexandria
I currently live on a small lake and enjoy all aspects of lake living. In planning for retirement, I knew I wanted to continue to live on the lake and wanted the 'perfect' setting: level lot, natural sugar sand beach, chain access, fishing, swimming, skiing, etc. I happened to drive by this property and it met all my wish-list criteria. Despite not being ready for retirement yet, I knew I had to act on it now as properties this good do not come around often!
What makes this Cottage unique
The perfect level lot and natural sand was the selling feature for this property. An added bonus is the perfect location; country feel with city amenities.

Another successful family camp fun
Third year our family, of now 12, has stayed here, including the House. Everyone gets a room and bed. The cottage is suited for a couple that wants to get away from the rest of the family if desired. The house accommodations are spacious and you don't trip over everyone. The beach is well suited for the little kiddos to swim and play. The dock is hit or miss for catching keepers (fish), but we managed to do pretty good this year, including a large mouth bass caught by our 5yr old nephew.
VRBO review from our stay 7/23 thru 7/30
Perfect location and accommodations for the two of us. My only suggestion for improvement would be the mattress and bed frame. It was a little rough for a week even for lake cabin bed. The frame made so much noise if made any slight movement. Saying that, I’m really hoping I can book your property next year. Bill and Cathy Froyum.
Hi Bill & Cathy,
Thank you for the positive review. We have never heard any concerns about the bed before this. The frame and mattress were both purchased new for the rental but we will definitely check into it. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you stay with us again.
Cottage great addition to rent with the house
We have 11 of us staying at his location. Second year back and already booked for next year 2018. Cottage is small and great for two people but can accommodate more if you want to be cozy. Great location for biking, fishing, shopping , or just hanging in the shade on the deck.
Beautiful little cottage with a great view!
Family rented both properties (including home next door). Great cozy cottage with easy access to the lake. Need to go to Sunnies (a short walk across the street) and get an ice cream. Dean was easy to work with and all returned communications quickly. Everything we needed was right there. We'd love to return, but need both properties. Unfortunately, neither are available together for the majority of the summer. Guess the word is getting out! Seriously, you will not regret booking this property.
Thank you for the review of our property and our Little Cottage. Yes you are correct. The word is getting out that we have a great property to rent for a Lake vacation. So it's best that you book at least a year in advance to get the week you want for your vacation. Thanks again for your review.
Great little cabin!
We had a wonderful stay at your cabin! Everything about it was perfect. The convenient store next door is so nice to grab some ice cream, a quick snack or a bag of ice. We enjoyed the sandy beach everyday and took a walk to the public beach a few times. The kids fished off the dock every night and caught a TON of little sunnies. We can't wait to rent your property again.
Our Family Camp used the House as well as this Cottage. We originally were going to have this as the get away for the family of 5 with 3 little kids, in case kids needed to nap. But found it better suited for 2, as it is small....but quaint. Has all the amenities as the house and was perfect for us to do breakfast there. Bought our own pan for eggs as we frequently find pans at rentals difficult to work with (but we kind of sort of expect that, and will bring pan next year as we've already placed our order to rent again). We then walked over to the house and hung there with the fam rest of day. Utilized the deck of house as a great gathering place.
Thank you for the review! Yes, the cottage does sleep four but is very nice for two! We are glad you enjoyed your vacation stay with us. The cottage does have a furnished kitchen but you are always welcome to bring favorite pots/pans or specialty items for cooking your favorite meals. We look forward to having you stay with us again!😎
