    Alexandria, Minnesota - Lake Homes, Cabins & Lake Lots

    An hour northwest of St. Cloud, Minnesota lies the quaint bedroom community of Alexandria; a welcoming locale with outdoor recreational opportunities galore. The country seat of Douglas County, Minnesota, Alexandria is home to a little over 11,000 residents.

    Located in the North Woods, the region surrounding Alexandria was once home to a variety of Native American peoples. As European settlers moved into the region in the late 18th and early 19th century, fur trading and logging became economic staples of the region. Today, tourism is the economic stronghold of this community due to its multitude of area lakes and resorts.

    For festivals, the area around Alexandria cannot be beat. Ancient lore suggests that the Vikings once visited the area as early as the 14th century, a much-disputed and controversial claim. Here, the Kensington Runestone resides in the Alexandria museum, the artifact locals point to in order to substantiate the claims that Vikings once visited here. Outside the museum, a 25 foot tall statute of a Viking named 'Big Ole.' Originally built for the World's Fair of 1964 in New York, the statute today towers above spectators in Alexandria, serving as an adopted mascot for the city. Every year, the annual Vikingland Band Festival where marching bands compete against one another is held in Alexandria. Other area festivals and events include the Art in the Park festival every year in July, the annual Douglas County Fair held in August, Carlos Creek Winery's Grape Stomp in September and the city's Apple Fest in October.

    Alexandria is remote, yet easily accessible from major metropolitan areas such as St. Cloud and Minneapolis-St.Paul. For those who prefer to fly, there is a public airport at Alexandria named Chandler Field. Drivers can connect with the region by travelling on Minnesota State Highways 27 and 29, both of which run through Alexandria. Interstate 94 passes to the south of the city, which connects this region to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

    With countless area lakes, Alexandria is an ideal destination for anglers and fishing aficionados. Walleye, perch, northern pikes, crappies and bass are to name but a few of the species found in the lakes and streams of this region. Hike through the towering pine forests; fish along serene lakes such as Darling Lake, Lake Mina, Lakota Lake, Geneva Lake, Victoria Lake, Andrew Lake, Lake Mary and Lake le Homme Dieu; or just relax on one of the area golf courses. Winter brings its own pastimes including ice fishing, snow mobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and, of course, a competitive game or two of hockey. If you don't play yourself, never fear, Alexandria boasts its very own Junior A ice hockey team from the North American Hockey League's central division known as the Alexandria Blizzard. No matter how you choose to spend your time in Alexandria region, you are sure to feel reinvigorated by the fresh air and crystal clear Minnesota lakes.

    Alexandria is located on the legendary Central Lakes Trail. The path is fifty-five miles long and connects the city of Alexandria with Dalton, Ashby, Melby, Evansville, Nelson, Brandon, Fergus Falls, Osakis and Garfield. The path is open to all non-motorized forms of transportation including bicycles, in-line skates, walkers and runners. In certain designated times in the winter, snow-mobiles are permitted on the path. Originally an old railroad line converted to a paved path, the Central Lakes Trail winds its way through some of the most beautiful countryside you will likely ever encounter.

    With crisp, clear air and countless opportunities for outdoor recreation, you and your family will almost certainly find yourself longing to return to the Alexandria region year after year. Why not take the plunge and invest in your very own lake property here in the Minnesota North Woods? Regardless of your budget and needs, you are sure to find just what you are looking for here on the lakes of the Alexandria region. Luxurious lakefront properties dot the shoreline, many of which feature an array of amenities including things such as gourmet kitchens, private swimming pools, hot tubs and even private docks. For those seeking less ostentatious digs, rustic cabins are the perfect spot to stay in the Minnesota North Woods. Lakeshore lots where folks can construct their very own visionary dream home here on the lakes of the Alexandria region are always a highly sought commodity. For those looking to invest, but not relocate, various services will help you find folks to rent to during times you are not using the property in order to maximize the usage and generate a little income along the way. If you find the perfect property for you and your family, be sure to act quickly. Otherwise, you risk losing out on the opportunity of a lifetime if another buyer snatches it up before you!
