Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Alexandria

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Home With Beautiful Lake Views

New 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home on Lake Cowdry. There are 5 queen sized beds, 2 bunk beds, and a queen size hide-abed. There are beds for 16 people and there are also 8 recliners. There are also 4-32' televisions, 1 in each bedroom. Two family rooms, one with a 52' television one with a 50' television. The lower level walk out features a nice electric fireplace. The open kitchen/dining area is great for entertaining and spending time with family and friends. Stainless steel appliances. A very large 14' x 54' deck overlooking the lake has a 6' overhang, and is a great place to relax and unwind. A fire pit is located on the lake side bank, overlooking the lake. The house is located within 2 miles of downtown Alexandria where you will find many shopping and dining options. We have now added wifi and Netflix!

Beautiful Lake Home On Lake Cowdry

This home is great for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a large family gathering. It has an open floor plan and worked very well to accommodate our large group. We enjoyed the large deck and the gorgeous view of Lake Cowdry. The kitchen is well furnished with needed cooking items. We did feel the stairway to the basement might benefit with some form of handrail. Bathrooms could use more towel bars and towel ring or bar by sink for hand towels. Basement bedrooms are very nice but could use blinds or shades for privacy. Bedrooms would also benefit from lamps at bedside. The home was clean. Quiet neighborhood. We loved the beautiful lake and enjoyed playing on the lake. The fire pit area is very nice but it is dark if there is not a large fire burning. The area is beautiful with fun downtown shopping. Nice dining places in the area. Our family would recommend this home to our friends and we would love to use it again for our family.

Spacious, clean home on Lake Cowdry

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in Tony's home on Lake Cowdry. There was plenty of room for our family to relax. The deck and outside space was really nice. My son, my mom, and I had a lot of fun with the kayaks and paddle boards.

It was a beautiful home and we would love to return another summer.

Great place to stay, but needs some tweaks.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay! My family of 9 adults and 9 children were very entertained with the nearby beach, the lake right out in front of us, and the kayaks and paddle boards! We were very grateful for the weed roller. The weeds in Lake Cowdry are widespread, so having some lake that was weed-free was much appreciated! We brought a Maui Mat and a boat for tubing so that also brought some fun!

The kitchen seems pretty well stocked. Some more serving bowls would have been nice, along with some Tupperware to store leftovers.

The bathrooms really need hooks to hang towels. And a shelf or cabinet to store belongings would be nice as well. There wasn't a hand towel anywhere which was odd, so having a few of these would be helpful.

There seems to be a bee hive in the house near the air conditioner. Bees were everywhere, 2 people were stung.

Now, the stairs going down to the basement. Very unsafe. So unsafe that my sister-in-law fell down them and damaged her shoulder. She was so injured that she had to sleep on one of the couch recliners the last night, icing it every two hours because of the pain. Thank goodness the incident happened the night before we left so she didn't have to be in pain while the rest of us enjoyed the outdoors. You NEED handrails. This is no joke.

Clean, comfortable, and great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations and all were met with this rental. It was super clean, right next to town but really quiet on the lake. Spent every night around the fire and days were filled with kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing. New wash machine and dryer and three full baths for clean up. Had a supper for fourteen on the patio with a great view. Friendly neighbors and fully stocked home made for a great stay. Thank you so much.

The property was immaculate and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed are stay at Tony's house very much. We had 10 adults and 6 teenagers staying there. He stopped over to introduce himself and ask if we needed anything but did not bother us. The refrigerator and freezer had ample room for our needs. The washer and dryer were top of the line. The beds were comfortable and the outside deck had a beautiful view of the lake as we drank our morning coffee. Tony had plenty of firewood for the fire pit. There was plenty of room to spread out and not be on top of each other. The only issue would be the stairs leading to the lower level. They were a bit narrow in some places and we had a gramma who had a walker and needed to sleep on the lower level but we made due. Thank you Tony so much for sharing your amazing house. We look forward to staying there in the future.

Cousin's weekend

  • 3 of 5

Had a very pleasant stay on Cowdry lake! House was very clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed. Plenty of towels comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, and cozy surroundings to feel right at home. House location was ideal for getting around the area and just minutes into Alexandria. took in the downtown shops and Carlos Creek Winery. Enjoyed an evening out by the fire overlooking the lake and listening to the loons. The owners were very prompt in responses and seeing that our stay had everything we needed. They also stopped by to meet us which was great!! Tony is very pleasant and great to work with!! Very important to him that we were happy with our stay. The only issue we had was we didn't seem to get enough water pressure in lower level shower. Not sure if it was the showers fault or the operators. :) For suggestions extra towel racks and tables for bath items in baths would be great and also some bedside table lamps for ones that like to read in bed would be nice. Believe me not having these items did not damper out stay! Will definitely recommend this home to others and hopefully return ourselves in the future!! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!!!
