About Scott & Deb Hadley

We are Deb and Scott Hadley. We purchased this lake home in hopes of retiring here someday. We live in southern Minnesota where I am currently an elementary school teacher and my wife works for the University of Minnesota as an Extension Educator.

Our lake home has been a great place for our friends and family to gather. We are sure you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Scott & Deb Hadley purchased this house in 2013

Why Scott & Deb Hadley chose Minnesota

My wife and I chose this property for several reasons:

1. Beautiful level lot

2. Home is just steps to the water

3. Great location

4. My home town where I grew up is just North of Alexandria 17 miles.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique benefits of this lake is the access to 10 more lakes if you choose. Convenient to Viking Speedway as well and only 3 miles to town.

The perfect place for relaxation, fun, skiing, fishing and most of all making wonderful memories.

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week with my family at this wonderful home on the shores of Lake Brophy. It is everything in the listing and so much more. The home was so welcoming with it design and furnishings. Everything inside and out was so well maintained and clean. Whether you are going to fish, ski, relax or just enjoying the wonderful view of the lake (just steps from the home). This is the place to be.

The home is close to so many things to do, hiking, parks, museums, shopping and so much more but we find that we love spending every minute of our time at the home and on the lake. But do check out Brophy Bay Mart just a short walk away. They have anything you might have forgotten, plus bait and the best mini meat market ever. The beef sticks are amazing.

Excited to go back for a week next year to make more fantastic memories.

A special thanks to the owners for their quick and caring responses to any questions. Best place we have ever stayed! Thanks Scott and Deb
