About Judy Owen or Carolyn Owen

The owners have been offering luxury vacation homes to guests for over 25 years. They take pride in offering high-end accommodations which provide a backdrop for incredible memories. The Haven was purchased in 2003 and is currently going through a remodel that will be completed in early spring 2018 that will expand it from 4 to 6 bedroom and from 2 to 3.5 baths. Expanded living space with fireplaces up and down will provide a great place to spend time with friends and family indoors and a new covered deck along with the open deck provides a space outdoors for all.

Why Judy Owen or Carolyn Owen chose Alexandria

The Alexandria, MN area offers a great variety of activities and Lake Louise is calm and family friendly. Summer brings water sports, picnicking and relaxing by the beach. Fall color is breathtaking and winter sparkles with snow, cross country skiing and sitting by the fireplace.

What makes this house unique

The guests will enjoy having room to seat 16 for dinner, cooking in the gourmet kitchen and having the pontoon available whenever they want to use it. Your family and friends will love having lots of space to gather and yet being able to find a quiet place for solitude too.

Haven get away vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The home was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We had a couple of minor issues arise and found the owner Judy to be most helpful and responsive! We will be returning in the future. Beautiful setting!

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The weather was excellent, the house spacious and clean, and the fish cooperated. Well, they cooperated enough to at least allow us to have a fish fry on the last night of our stay. The lake was very clean, allowing the kids to enjoy watching the fish attack their bait. We used the paddle boat and pontoon, which provided a beautiful time on the water too. The kids loved the full playground set, as well. The house has everything that you will need for a great time away. Also, Richard and Judy were excellent to work with and I would recommend them very highly. Check it out!!

Great quiet place!

  • 5 of 5

This property was large enough to accomodate 10 women. 2 bathrooms was an added bonus. The kitchen was large and spacious and a great gathering place for morning brunch. The use of the pontoon was an excellent addition. The lake is small and quiet with little traffic. We had a grand time! We'd be happy to come back again!

Great place for a week at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our grown kids and young grandchildren. There was plenty of space to spread out or to gather. The extras such as double towel bars, hampers, and luggage racks in each bedroom were a very nice touch. Having the pontoon was great for both the adults and the kids. The whole home was very well equipped and we especially appreciated the crib, high chair, exersaucer, rainbow play set, toys and books for the little ones. We had a few really warm days so the air conditioner made for much better sleeping. Both runners and bikers in the group took advantage of the nearby Central Lakes trail. Thanks so much for many happy memories!

Family Fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Haven! We had 4 adults and 6 kids to enjoy every amenity the Haven had to offer! What captured our attention was the pontoon that was included in the rental!! We have rented many VRBOs, and this by far was the BEST for a fun family vacation. The home was clean and well-stocked with bedding, towels, and beach towels! Beds were very comfortable!! We will rent again because of the pontoon, the location, and lovely Lake Louise!! Thanks for everything!!
