About the property

Graystone Is On Lake Latoka A 700 Acre Lake Stocked With Walleye And Panfish

Graystone Lodge is just under 4000 sq. ft. on two stories. The main floor boasts 5 bedrooms. 3 BR's with queen size beds, and 2 bedrooms with twin beds and a trundle, a crib is in the Master BR., Laundry room stocked with cleaning supplies, living rm., gourmet kitchen with island seating, dining rm. seats 8, with room for more. An atrium door leads to a 20'X20' covered deck. The walkout level has 1 BR w/queen bed and a temperpedic king size sleeper sofa. A large family rm. with TV, full kitchen and laundry rm.

We have recently finished a partial renovation of this six-bedroom, 3 bath house on Lake Latoka.The renovation included completely redoing the walkout level and extensive landscaping. Rental will include a pontoon in season. The only extra charges are for gas for the pontoon and potential cleaning fees.

The upstairs kitchen is completely furnished with cooking and eating utensils, for many guests. Appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range, microwave. The dining room seats 8 comfortably with two additional seats at the counter. There is lots of seating space in the living room and a new upper deck is large, faces lake, has a roof with fans and outdoor furniture. The upstairs has the master bedroom (with a tv) with its own bath and outside deck , 4 additional bedrooms (smaller twin has a tv), with the other bath, and a laundry room.

The walkout level has a kitchen with cabinets, double sink, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and garbage compactor. There is also a dining table that seats 8. The family room has a 50 inch television. There is a full bath. The 6th bedroom is also in the walkout level. The sofa is a king-size Temperpedic sofa/sleeper.

There is also a washer and dryer on this level.

To describe the landscaping:. As you leave the house and walk onto a large paver patio, there is a gas grill. From the walkout paver patio, there are two steps to gentle sloping grass (approximately one foot drop over 25 feet) about 60 feet to a large paver patio at the lake.

There are two steps down from the grass onto the patio. There is a picnic table and chairs and a fire bowl.

Then there are a final 3 steps down from the patio to a 10 gently sloping foot ramp to the dock. There is no beach. You step from the dock into shallow water, which has a hard sand bottom approximately 2 feet deep. You may walk into deeper water as desired.

The yard is beautifully landscaped and somewhat shaded with large oak trees throughout the yard. Our neighbor has an open lot next door and prefers that our guests not use it. We still need to do a lot of the flower/weed cleanup-which is always ongoing. All of the work on the hardscape (walls and patios) has been done but the softscape (flowers) is a work in progress.

We believe vacations are not only for adults but for the children as well.We endeavor to provide a fun and safe environment for both.

About Judy Owen

Judy and I have owned and rented property in the Alexandria area for over 25 years. We want those of you who join us for vacation to have a house that resembles and is equipped as your own home. We provide linens, towels, pots and pans etc. so that if you want to cook you can.

The joy we get when we hear children laughing and playing lifts our spirits and is a reminder of our own grandchildren. It makes our work worthwhile.

Family fun at Graystone!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 (ages 6 to 70) stayed at Graystone recently and had the best time! The home was very clean and beautiful from the moment we walked in, and it had everything we needed. There was enough room for everyone to spread out but yet we had intimate dinners every night with everyone at the dining table. The pontoon was probably everyone's favorite part! The owner, Judy, always responded to my emails prior to renting and also during our stay very quickly. We enjoyed her home and working with her so much that we are already booked with her for next year! We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place with lots of space, a beautiful view, and an easy and nice owner to work with.

We had s great time at Graystone. Our family of 15, all enjoyed their time at the home. The owners were very helpful and checked with us several times during our stay by way of email. The home is equipped with everything you need. The pontoon was a plus as we enjoyed fishing and jumping off in the deep to swim. The smaller kids enjoyed the swing set. There was lots of grassy areas to play yard games on.

Best week ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation ever at Graystone Lodge!!! Judy and Richard have created such a wonderful oasis at their place and were so responsive to all our communication and requests!!! We just loved the fact that there were so many wonderful sitting areas - upstairs, downstairs, on the deck, and on the patios!!! We were able to have the most wonderful conversations and game times in those areas! How amazing that there were 2 ovens, refrigerators, & laundry rooms!!! The house had everything we needed and the weather was gorgeous and we swam and laid out on our floats every day... just fabulous!! One of the best highlights was the pontoon and we were able to fish off of it, and go for lovely evening rides to enjoy the spectacular sunsets!! Our family is closer because of our wonderful time together at Graystone Lodge and we would HIGHLY recommend this rental to anyone!!! Thanks again, Judy and Richard, for a spectacular stay!!!!!!!!! :) Roxy and family

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home July 10th through the 17th. We had rain and cool weather for 3 of the days we were there, but with all of the room and the two patios/deck our family of 16 adults and kids was not crowded. We appreciated the 2 kitchens and laundry rooms and spent a lot of time on the pontoon! The younger granddaughters loved the playground area. Because of the rain, we only had one night for a fire, but it is in a perfect area. We are hoping to be back again next summer. Judy was very prompt in answering all of the questions we had before hand. Definitely would recommend it for a large group.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of July 4th. Beautiful house! Love having 2 kitchens. Everything was very well kept. Had an issue with the pontoon the first day but the repair guy came the next day and we were on the lake. Playground area was perfetct for the kiddos as well as the shallow little swimming area. Had an assortment of games and reading material. 2 washers and 2 dryers--so I didn't have to wait for my sister ;) Spent a lot of our time on the large deck or out by the fire pit. Would highly recommend!

lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend staying at graystone. The house has many great features, 2 washers & dryers, 2 ovens & 2 fridges well equipped, plenty of refrigerator space for a larger group, very comfortable and relaxing. The owners were very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to please. The grand kids loved the playset and the toys that the owners provided. Thank you for a wonderful vacation

An abandoned railroad trestle provides miles of walking biking trails in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Several golf courses can challenge those par and over par golfers. Winter is an opportunity for cross country skiing and down hill skiing at Andes Tower Hills. Winter also provides a great opportunity for ice fishing or sitting by a cozy fireside enjoying a wonderful snowfall.
