About Scott Soderholm

Scott and Kate live in Alexandria. Having grown up on a lake, both realize how much joy one can experience living on a lake. Wanting to share that experience with others motivated us to purchase Red Roof Retreat on Stalker Lake.

Scott Soderholm purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Scott Soderholm chose Battle Lake

Even though the Alexandria area is full of lakes, the Battle Lake area is even more full. This property was chosen because it is close to the water, quiet and provides good fishing and plenty to do.

Really nice place.

The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable...cozy. Had everything we needed. The lake was beautiful as was the surrounding area. My family and I had a great time.

Very nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the cabin justice. They did a great job with the remodel. Also there is a kitchen table that's just to right of the kitchen picture that can sit about 6. My son is 2 so we brought a little picnic table for him to sit on while eating, but didn't end up needing it. Also there's no pictures of the water or shoreline to give you a sense of what the lake is like from the dock. It's mucky from the shore, but there a sandy area at the end of the dock that's about 3ft deep. The owners were very easy going and we hope to stay here again until we have a cabin of our own.

If you do go, make sure to check out Eagle Lake just to the east off of hwy 78. That has to be the clearest, bluest lake I've seen in MN.
