Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12, Exceptional lake View

Our 4-bedroom A-frame offers an exceptional view of Lake Darling. You will feel like you are on the water as you gaze out the lakeside windows. This home is as close to the water as you can get. There are beds to sleep 8 plus a queen airbed and a queen sleeper sofa. Three tiers of decks provide a wonderful, relaxing hangout. The property includes 900 feet of lakeshore that goes all the way to the channel connecting Lake Darling to Lake Cowdry. The property also includes a double garage.

Lake Darling is the third largest of the eleven lakes that make up Alexandria's Chain of Lakes. On the Chain, you can spend the whole day on the water.

Lake Carlos State Park is just minutes away. This beautiful park offers fishing, volleyball, swimming and miles of hiking trails.

Bring your bicycle because access to the Central Lakes Trail is less than one mile away. This trail stretches 55 miles from Fergus Falls to Osakis and then connects with the Lake Wobegon Trail. These trails are built on an old railroad bed, so the grade is easy for walking, pedaling a bicycle, or rollerblading.

About Connie Hammje

Alexandria is our hometown, but it is a fabulous vacation destination. We live on a farm close to town. We purchased this A-frame on Lake Darling for a dual purpose: a close get-away for us and a vacation rental.

Connie Hammje purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Connie Hammje chose Minnesota

Location was important to us. Being on the Chain of Lakes allows access to 11 different lakes. It is also close to town giving convenience for shopping and entertainment.

What makes this cabin unique

When you are in our A-frame, you feel like you are on a house boat. As you look out the windows on the lake side, it is like you are ON the water, not next to the water.

Very clean and accomidating vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my family. We had 3 families and each could have a floor. The house was very clean. And the view of the lake was spectacular, my husband and son went bass fishing and had really good luck! We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad to hear our place worked out well for you. We would love to have you back next year. We already have several bookings for 2018, so you might want to lock in a date if you know what will work for you. Thanks, again, for staying at our cabin. Connie

Beautiful View But Noisy Traffic

  • 4 of 5

I picked this house for the lake view and its location right on the water. One person described it as like being on a ship because when looking out the windows you don't see the small piece of land between the house and the water. The new windows facing the lake are huge and sparkling clean and the view is spectacular from every room. Very comfortable furniture and beds. The internet was strong and the cable functional but with a limited number of channels, but we have a Roku so that wasn't an issue. The fixtures and finishes are a little dated but everything is in good working order and spotless. I could see this home has been very well cared for. I don't have a boat and didn't fish but the dock and fish cleaning room off the garage are very nice. The only problem I had was with the traffic noise. The house sits about 20-25 feet back from a busy road and the traffic is pretty loud day and night. The noise distracted me from the peaceful feeling of sitting on the deck in the evening. This was mid week in September and the lake was quiet so I imagine in the summer there would be so much noise from boats and jet skis on the lake that the traffic would not be as noticeable. My husband didn't mind the noise. He was too busy enjoying the view.

It was a great property. Everything needed was easily accessible

The property was great. Everything you except from a lake cabin. Dock was great with easy boat rental and the lake was crystal clear.

August Adventure 2017

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed every minute of our recent stay at this property. Excellent location with ample parking. The double garage was a plus. The cabin is very spacious and quiet. Great lake views from decks/bedrooms. Very clean and comfortable. Convenient features with door/garage locks, etc. We were able to use the grill (charcoal & starting fluid included) and fire pit (wood not provided.) Great dock. Would have been nice to have access to a boat, etc., but understand. All were extremely satisfied & look forward to returning again.
