3 BR townhome - ideal location on Lake Carlos - large sandy beach and level lot
About Katy Olson
Lake Carlos Bay is a family-owned complex. Dave and Lynda purchased the old Lazy Day Villa Resort property on Lake Carlos in 2015. They, along with their daughter, Katy, and her husband, Jon, worked to develop and plan Lake Carlos Bay - it opened in the summer of 2016. Much time and reflection has gone into the building of Lake Carlos Bay - a well-designed, modern facility that offers an ideal vacation for a single family or larger group. All five units (plus now the game room!) are named after Dave and Lynda's six grandchildren.

Fun in the Sun at Lake Carlos Bay
Beautiful property, with enough amenities (game room, fire pits, pizza oven, water toys) to keep us at the lake. Our Grandkids mentioned that we never went into Alexandria to Go-Cart and Mini Golf because we were too busy!
We'll be back!

Great Family Getaway
To start the grounds around the condos are well landscaped and maintained. The parking area is a bit tight but we were informed of that by Katy beforehand so we were not surprised when we arrived to unload our vehicles. The condo unit itself was immaculate and what you see in the pictures is what you get. The lake side lawn and beach is great but the shoreline is made up of a lot of small rocks until you get into the water up to your knees which we solved with water shoes or simply jumping off the dock. There is plenty of dock space for boats and fishing of the end of the docks. Both of my granddaughters caught there first fish during the week off the end of the dock. Plenty of water toys to keep everyone busy and happy. Dave and Lynda were available when we checked in and gave us the run down on how everything worked and where to find things. They were close by all week if we needed anything and we appreciated that. We did use the gas rock out front for smore's which the little girls just thought was the greatest thing. All in all it was a great week at a great place and we will certainly keep Lake Carlos Bay on our short list of places to return to.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. Thank you for your thoughtful review, feedback, and kind words. We really appreciate it. We are glad you and your family had a great time and enjoyed your vacation. We appreciated you as renters and would love to have you back to Lake Carlos Bay in the future. Thank you!
Beautiful location—wonderful hosts!
This was our third stay at this property and each one was awesome. The property is extremely well maintained and comfortable. Katy and her crew have really thought of everything to make a week at the lake a fantastic time. We will definitely be back next year!
Thank you so much! We appreciate your kind review. We so enjoy families like yours and truly appreciate you returning...glad you enjoy Lake Carlos as much as we do. Thanks again!
Very nice property; perfect for a couple families!
The property was well taken care of with tons of activities (game room, paddle boards, paddle boats, swim platform, kid toys, ladder golf, bocce ball, swing set, fire pits, pizza stone oven, hammocks, etc..). This is a perfect place for a couple families to make some good memories, catch some good fish, play some water sports and end the night with a bonfire. Our kids were never bored! The location was perfect because you had close access to two other lakes which was nice when we rented a pontoon and jet ski. The owners are super nice and easy to work with. They were available to answer any questions and always made sure the property was well taken care of during our stay. The condo unit had everything you need and more. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your fabulous review. We so appreciate you taking the time to tell others about Lake Carlos Bay. It was great to have your family and we so appreciate your reservation. Hope to see you again! :)
