snowmobile weekend

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cabin right in the heart of alexandria but you feel like your out in the woods. Well maintained and clean with 5 bedrooms and 2 baths, if you are going sledding it is right off the trail. Owner was very accommodating to early check-in and everything was ready when we arrived.

I would recommend this place for anyone.

Cabin on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion in Alexandria was a fun getaway for all. The log cabin on Lake Victoria was a spacious and pleasant home where we could all fit and enjoy the beautiful cabin and lake front views. The 5 bedrooms fit all of us and we had room to spare. Thanks again Erik and VRBO for this beautiful family reunion.

Family Winter Fun

  • 5 of 5

Nine adults and six small children enjoyed a magical Christmas get together on a secluded lake in an amazing updated log cabin. Favorites were: relaxing in the front sun room, cooking meals in the functional and tastefully updated kitchen, comfortable beds and locations in the cabin that allowed for privacy and napping, having folding chairs and table available for meals and games, being close to Alexandria for supplies and groceries and working with the owner Erik who was responsive and accommodating. An added bonus for our active family was being able to ice fish in front of the cabin and enjoy sledding nearby. We came away with some amazing moments together and memories for a life time.

Extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot think of a better place to have stayed in the Alex area for my son's wedding. Beautiful home right on Lake Victoria, with all of the amenities one could ever want or need. This home has easy access to all of your shopping needs, yet when you are at the cabin you are swept away by the beauty and quiet of the woods and the lake. I slept out on the sun porch, which forever will be known by me as the Tree Fort. Stunning views morning, noon and night. My family and I oohed and aahed over and over again at the spaciousness of the cabin, the fabulously clear lake, and most importantly the graciousness of the owner Erik at providing so much in his beautiful lake home. Lasting memories were made and will be forever cherished at this fine property.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to Lake Victoria for 15 years. Our previous rental was sold last year so we needed to find a new place to stay. All I can say is that I wish we would have found this place years ago! Overall, the home is very clean, nicely updated and offered a lot of space for 12 of us to spread out. The bedrooms were all spacious and the beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are also nicely updated and come with bath and hand towels to use. We do all our own cooking for the week so having a huge kitchen out of which to work and the grill right outside on the main level was awesome! The sunroom was a great place to sit in the morning and watch the sun rise. It was also very comfortable in the evening with the windows open listening to the waves splash against the beach below. The dock and deck down by the lake were also popular spots to relax! On top of all that, the owners were very pleasant and accommodating. Highly recommend a stay here. We have already booked it again for next year!

Girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a beautiful location. There were six of us women in town for the state bowling tournament. Couldn't have been more perfect. Plenty of room, comfortable beds and furniture. My favorite spot to be was the sun room. Right over the lake and very inviting. My bowling team mates were very impressed with my find and I enjoyed the praises. :) Jonah is awesome and helpful to work with and I would recommend his rental in a heartbeat.
