The SpaceFeels like a resort, but without all the commotion! You may love the deck and beach so much you'll never want to come in; but then again, you can enjoy the lake view while warmed by the fireplace in the spacious living/dining/kitchen area. Guest AccessYou'll pretty much have full access to the place, which includes up to 4 bedrooms, plenty of parking space, and access to: private boat launch, canoe, paddleboat, 2 docks, hot tub, campfire, private living room, basketball, ping pong, WiFi, fridge, washer/dryer, kitchen, dining area, deck, and main living room. You will not have access to the main bedroom & bath, garages, or lower level storage and utility area. Interaction with GuestsWe've enjoyed being onsite hosts for many guests, and have reviews that can help you understand more on this. Since we live here, when we have guests that prefer their hosts be offsite, we try our best to accommodate. If you have a strong preference that we stay offsite, please let us know up front when you inquire or request to book. But if it's not a concern, let us know that too, as that will free us to stay home if we want. Either way, if you've ever wanted to wake surf, I love to drive and coach, so let me know if you are even curious about this, so I can plan to be around if/when you'd want a pull behind our boat. The NeighborhoodOur south end of Burgen Lake is all sugar sand shores, and very clean water. The water drops off fast enough that you can safely dive off the docks. Almost every home is occupied by year-round families, so it's a very family-friendly atmosphere on and around the lake. Getting AroundOur lake home is just 5 minutes off the main Alexandria exit from I-94, and very close to many other lakes, and only 2 miles from WalMart and other shops. Our lake is excellent for recreation, as well panfishing. The area has a great variety of things to do and places to eat (search for Vacation Alexandria MN). Other Things to NoteGreat place to stay any time of the year! Fall is beautiful here, and there are many arts and crafts events in the area through mid-November. Enjoy all kinds of winter fun right outside your door, including ice-fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, skating, camp fire, or simply enjoying the warm fireplace and hot tub.
