There is everything you need to make this vacation enjoyable such as the 100' beach with an adult size sand pit next to the lake, very large deck facing the lake and surrounding the entire back of the house, and a fire pit surrounded by paver stones for sitting around making S'mores. There are four bedrooms, three bathroom (one is in master bedroom), new remodeled fully furnished kitchen, fish cleaning room with urinal, new four season porch, family room on both floors, formal dining room, high speed internet. The dock has a weed roller attached to keep the beach clean on one side of the dock and the other side has both a boat lift. Most pan fish can be caught right off the dock and cleaned in the 'fish cleaning' room. You will love the beautiful sunsets to watch on the deck with two patio sets, & many camping chairs. You can grill your food and sip on your favorite beverage while watching the sparkling waters of Lake Cowdry. There are two fireplaces should the nights get cool. The lower level has a cedar shake decorated wet bar complete with sink, full size fridge, high table and chairs.

About Patricia Kaiser
Part of our family grew up on a lake in southern Minnesota and loved it so this is our vacation home as we love God's creation with the lake's beauty, peacefulness, and calming. We live in south central Minnesota now and have enjoyed this as much as possible while still working full time. Retirement is a few years away and more time is spent now with new grandchildren.
Patricia Kaiser purchased this House in 2007
Why Patricia Kaiser chose Alexandria
We bought this property after searching for 2 1/2 years. We wanted it within 2-3 hours of our place of employment so we could enjoy it most weekends from April through October and occasionally during the winter. This area of the state has glacier lakes which run deep and clear with sandy beaches. Alexandria is a busy town with a charming main street full of shops, great restaurants, many lakes, bike trail, and fun shopping.
What makes this House unique
We love the big wide windows facing the lake covering most of the dining room and living room walls. When the kitchen was remodeled, another opening was made to be able to view the lake. Our favorite spot is the deck, especially to watch the sunsets - they are priceless. There is privacy on all sides as both sides of the yard have empty lots next to the lake. No pets or smoking on the property.
A great place for the whole family!
Once again this year we had a great vacation staying here. Everything from fishing to golfing. A great time was had by all.
Great house on lake Cowdry with everything you need to have a great vacation.
I would recommend this house for your summer vacation. The kitchen is well equipped. Lots of outdoor chairs and water toys for your use. The house and property is well taken care of and the owner is great to work with. Thanks Pat for making this work for us.
We would definitely stay here again. The house lacked nothing and had beautiful sunsets every night
We had such a wonderful stay in this home on Lake Cowdry. Patricia, the owner, was always quick to respond to my questions before and during our stay at her home. With the house were kayaks and bikes and beach toys and rafts and plenty of outdoor chairs. The kitchen had everything you could imagine needing and plenty of books and games for all ages. We especially enjoyed the 55 mile bilking trail nearby. It was a great way to see the beautiful lakes and farmland near by. We hope to have a replay of Minnesota vacation but we all agree we would like to stay a couple more days and enjoy the peaceful house on the lake.
Great property in a wonderful location on a very nice lake.
We had an absolutely fabulous week at this property. We are a family group ranging in age from 1 month to a 71 year old man. Everyone had a great time. The 4 year old girl said her fishing pole must be magic. (She even caught a small bass off the dock.) I do know we over packed - so many things are provided, such as book, games and movies for young and old, swim floaties, bicycles, a stroller, and even a potty chair for the 2 year old. The washer/dryer came in handy and so many pantry items were helpful. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a great time.
Thank you Ken and family for your comments. It was also a pleasure to be there on the day you checked out and it looked as if it had already been cleaned, very nice! We look forward to your week next year!
Truly a home away from Home.
Clean, comfortable and quiet lake home . We biked , kayaked and enjoyed the lake everyday. Grilled out and enjoyed the spacious Patio and slept in a few days .
Our large family really enjoyed our stay here. The home was super clean, well supplied, and had plenty of room for us! We spent most of our time boating, skiing, and floating on the lake. Our grandson loved catching many fish. We went to the movies, Zorbaz, and golfing....all minutes away! Patricia was very nice to work with and returned our damage deposit very quickly.
