About paul

This cabin has been in my family since my grandfather and uncle purchased it 56 years ago. It has been owned for the last 40+ years by my father who passed a few years ago. In the past 15 years we have upgraded the place to a modern home with all the amenities. When my father passed my family had purchased the cabin. I have 5 kids between the age of 12-24 years old. 3 girls and 2 boys. I hope to create lots of memories for the future and someday pass the property on to my kids.

paul purchased this cabin in 1962

Why paul chose Minnesota

The reason that my family purchased land in this area was my uncle was a caretaker at the Lutheran bible camp up the road. Mount Carmel

What makes this cabin unique

The lake is large, weed free, and great for swimming.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Alexandria. Your home was just perfect. We had our whole family there and also the grand kids. The lake was beautiful as was the surrounding yard. We made so many memories for our family. We all enjoyed the hot tube to relax in. The grill was awesome as that is how we cooked our dinner every night. I would really like to thank Paul for the use of his home it was perfect in every way.

Comfortable house with good location to Lake Carlos.

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy renting this house and have done so for a week at a time the last four years. The three bedroom house is clean and comfortable. We like strolling on the paved road in front of the property. The boat lift is right across the road from the house and very handy to get back and forth from the lake. Kitchen is well stocked with everything we need to make our meals. We will be back many more times in the future!

Another wonderful stay at the Freeberg Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Freeberg cabin and I would definitely recommend the cabin. The cabin is always clean with great accommodations. We really enjoyed the back yard with the grill area and firepit. We also enjoyed the hot tub to warm up after a cool rainy day on the lake. We brought our own boat and the boat lift worked perfect to store our boat overnight. The owner is very nice and easy to work with! He is very accommodating. Overall this is a wonderful place to enjoy your time at the lake.

Cabin on Lake Carlos

  • 5 of 5

Although we chose the hottest week of the year, we still had an awesome time! We had been out in the boats at 100 degree + 'feel-like' temps for over 5 hours a day (got nice tans - lol), but we were able to come back to an air conditioned cabin, a hot tub we turned down as cool as it could be, and had all the things you have at home. The TV is limited, but we played Trivial Pursuit instead while our steaks were on the grill (both gas and charcoal are available). The washer/dryer are very convenient, and so is the fish cleaning station. We took FULL advantage of the fire pit (fire wood supplied) - the back yard is very nice! The only thing I had problems with is the well water - it's drinkable, but I don't like it. Bring lots of drinking water - there is a reverse osmosis system installed - just call me crazy. We plan to book a whole week next year (depending on schedules) - but we had a BLAST!!!!

Great place to host a girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This worked great for our girls get away! The layout of the home has a large kitchen that is open to the living and dining room it worked great for multiple people to help with kitchen prep, and still be able to socialize with everyone. The large sleeping rooms and generously sized bathrooms made this cabin feel more like a house than a cabin.

We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoors with ample backyard seating, a wonderful fire pit and relaxing hot tub. The lake across the street had a dock that jetted out to a crystal clear shoreline! We were lucky enough to have a PERFECT day on the lake!

Would definitely recommend to familys and group gatherings.

Great property

  • 3 of 5

Overall, I was very pleased with our stay. While I knew that the landing was on the other side of the street, I thought it would be more directly across. It was unclear which landing was the one to use; I felt there should have been house numbers on the stairs leading down to the landing. We didn't use the swimming dock or the water toys as they were on the shore and looked like they hadn't been used in a while. I did contact the owner regarding the swimming dock. He said he didn't have it in the water because people with boats thought it was in the way. He did say I could put it in the water. As I have never done that before, I didn't feel comfortable putting it in. So, if you want the swimming dock, make sure you ask for it. The hot tub had a green tint to it. I was assured that this was because of the well water and that all the levels were ok. We didn't use it. The grills were great. The fire pit was awesome. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. The beds were very comfortable. I would not hesitate to rent this property again.
