2 LAKES! PONTOON AVAILABLE AND DOGS WELCOME. 335' LAKESHORE BY ALEXANDRIA

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Alexandria - The Isthmus At Elk

Unique Property With A Lake On Each Side Of The House.

You can look far and wide and never find one like this again. We have a four bedroom house on two lakes! You can watch the sun rise over one lake, then watch it set over the other one. Too windy today on one lake? No problem, it's perfectly calm on the other. Never miss a moment of enjoyment. There is 335 feet of private lake shore to enjoy with a private beach!

We now have a 20' pontoon boat available for rent.

This lake home has the ideal location. The back deck and bedroom windows are about 15' from the water of Lower Elk Lake. Enjoy a cool morning breeze through your bedroom window. Out the front there is another 165' of private shore on Elk Lake to go with the 150' of shore on Lower Elk Lake. We have a private sandy beach, hammock, fire pit, dock, and a boat lift on Elk Lake. There is another dock on Lower Elk. Along with the pontoon boat we also have two brand new kayaks and two paddle boats for you to enjoy. There is also a 14' fishing boat and even fishing rods if you need.

The home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, rumpus room (with foos-ball table, electronic dart board, and board games), eat-in kitchen, deck, two patio doors right over the lake, all on two-thirds of an acre. There are seven beds that will sleep up to ten people in this 1,600 square foot home. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and there is a washer and dryer. We have a flat screen TV, high-speed internet, and a WDTV (to watch cable TV over Slingbox software). You can bring up to two dogs if you'd like (if housebroken).

Elk lake is the best swimming lake in the county. There is a public sandy beach with lifeguards (Certain hours only) only a few hundred feet away.

Both Elk and Lower Elk are great sand bottom fishing lakes. In either lake you can go after Walleye, Northern Pike, Large mouth Bass, and Sunfish. In 2014 we heard they're even catching Crappies on Elk. You're able to fish from the shore, the docks or from a boat. There is even a fish cleaning table by the garage.

Only two miles away you can find Hoffman, MN. Hoffman is a small quiet town but you'll be able to get most of the necessities you'll need there. It has a gas station, two restaurants, a bar/restaurant, grocery store, liquor store, service station, and other shops. There is even Red Rock Golf Course located three miles away.

If you need a little more action than sleepy Hoffman is able to provide that's not a problem as you're only about twenty minutes away from Alexandria MN. Alexandria has lots of shopping at dozens of antique stores and other shops. There are plenty of restaurants, retail stores, golf courses, and even a winery.

We'd really love to share our little bit of heaven with you.

Key words: Sandy Shore, fishing, walleye, cabin, pontoon, golf, relaxation.

Great Family Fun

  • 5 out of 5
We booked the cabin having never done the VRBO before. The cabin was very spacious and slept 10 easily. The fact that they allowed us to bring our family dog was a big plus. The pontoon is an excellent idea for people without their own boat as we used it daily. The nearby beach is great for families with young children. We had some good luck fishing on Elk Lake but didn't try Lower Elk Lake. The teenagers with us made great use of the kayaks and paddle boats. There is definitely plenty to do and the accommodations are excellent. We brought our own beach towels otherwise everything else is there for you to use. Definitely considering a return trip next year.

Owner's Response: We know a lot of our guests enjoy that they don't have to leave their dogs home. And we're also happy another family enjoyed the pontoon. Hope to see you again!

Great place with everything you need!

  • 5 out of 5
We tried this place for our family vacation and it worked out great. The cabin is cozy and well appointed with everything you need. It totally fits the "cabin" feel we were looking for (cabin decor, not someones elegant lake home). Beds are comfy and we never needed to turn on the A/C (in late July) even though the days were hot. Great cross breeze and sleeping was very comfortable.
We took advantage of everything the cabin had to offer; kayaks, paddle boats, pontoon. The kids loved that the swim beach was so close as well.
Kitchen had everything we needed to make some nice meals and the grill on the deck worked great.
Hoffman is only 2 miles away and the grocery store had everything we needed to cook and prepare meals for the week and it was easy to run in and fill the gas tank for the boat and pick up bait as well. The farmers market on Wednesday evenings offered great local vegetables.
I would definitely come back to this cabin again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great Minnesota-on-the-lake vacation!

Fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, son, and I spent a week here and had a great time! We used the pontoon and enjoyed cruising the lake and even catching fish. I caught walleye, bass, and northern all from the pontoon. My 1.5 year old son enjoyed swimming and playing in the water at both the cabin's private beach and the nearby public beach. Great cabin that had lots of space and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. We will be back again next year!

Relaxing place, great fishing, dog friendly, lots of space, friendly owner

  • 4 out of 5
We had a wonderful time at this cabin home. Our party consisted of two adults and one dog. The cabin is quite large and had a lot of extra bed linens, towels and blankets available to guests. Ample cooking supplies provided. Very nice back deck with gas grill, umbrella table, chairs and water view. We caught many large mouth bass in the main lake where the fishing boat launch is located. The pictures posted in the listing advertisement are very accurate. We did not need to use the basement area recreation room as the main level and upper level bedrooms met our needs just fine. We did notice a mildew like smell in the basement area. The main level bathroom is very nice and looks like it was recently remodeled. Overall this was a nice place and we had a great time. We would return for another visit and recommend it to others. Thank you Tim and Jody.

We enjoyed our stay

  • 4 out of 5
We had a great fishing experience at this cabin getaway. Everything was very clean and homey. We enjoyed the fishing and caught the biggest fish ever when we were there. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fishing and sitting around the fire at night (if misquitos aren't too hungry). Even fishing off the dock was good if you don't have a boat to go fishing in.
