Overview

Photos and Description of the Alexandria vacation house rental

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, 2 Kitchens, 2 Family Rooms, 2 gas fireplaces on Lake Brophy

Welcome to Brophy Reflections, a year round rental property! Built in the early 60's this rambler boasts beautiful sunset views from a bank overlooking Lake Brophy. Park your vehicle in the attached garage and walk into our comfortable, tastefully furnished home. You will be drawn to the large living room windows and look out over the lake. Cozy is what you'll feel when you turn on the gas fireplace. There is a tv with a smart DVD player that connects to wifi. You can access your online movie accounts. There is no cable, Dish or the like.

The dining table seats 6-10 with the two leaves.. The fully furnished kitchen has microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher. Salt, pepper, sugar and flour may be available, and also Ziplocs, foil and plastic wrap. These items are not guaranteed. The three bedrooms and one bath are at the south end of house and can be separated by closing the pocket door. Great for napping and quiet time!

Our blue bathroom gives you a taste of the 60's and you'll find towels, a limited supply of tp and kleenex, even a toothbrush if you forgot yours. There are wash cloths, hand and bath towels for our guests to use.

The blue bedroom has one twin bed, and one full. A full size bed is in the small bedroom which looks over the lake. The master bedroom has a queen and a corner window with a lake view.

Downstairs we have a fourth bedroom with a full Tempur-pedic and a twin Sleep Number bed.

Downstairs you'll find a cozy spot with a sofa bed and loveseat. There is a 32' flat screen with DVD player. There is no satellite service, however, we have provided an HDMI cord you may use with your computer or tablet to access downstreaming with your personal Netflix account (or the like); there is also a smart DVD player. Wifi is provided.

The little kitchen downstairs is furnished but has no dishwasher (dishwasher is in upstairs kitchen.) We have a CordaRoy king sofa which converts to 2 king size mattresses for additional sleeping. Kids love them! There is a walk in shower with a seat. Laundry facilities are also downstairs. The downstairs is like an apartment: kitchen, bedroom, bath and living room with a gas fireplace.

Go out the downstairs door and walk onto a shaded patio. The new steps down to the lake are many but there is a landing with a bench you can take a rest or watch the lake action. Brophy is a quiet lake on the chain. You may swim, jet ski, water ski, fish or whatever. Please have lots of fun but at the same time respectful of the neighbors.

Our front yard is family friendly. There is a fire pit with chairs out front. Set up the badminton, croquet, or play whiffle ball. Roll down the grassy slope, play tag or throw the football and have fun! Also, a dog kennel which has a doggie door to the shed. Yes, you may bring your dog with pre-approval and additional fee but the dog must remain on leash, kenneled or downstairs. A Dog Addendum must be signed.

Brophy Reflections is less than 10 minutes to Alexandria. Beautiful sandy Latoka beach is only 1.5 miles away. Go another direction and walk that same distance, just around Lake Cowdry to the bike/walking path. Alexandria offers so many outdoor opportunites. During the winter Brophy Reflections is less than half a mile to the snowmobile trail. After a great day of sledding you will come home to a cozy warm house. If you enjoy skiing and snowboarding Andes Tower Hills is about 15 miles away. You can fish on Brophy or go to one of the area lakes. Golfing is convenient as ArrowWood is only a 10 minutes drive. The museums in town are so interesting, shopping is unique, AAAA theatre offers entertainment throughout the year. There is bowling, miniature golf and cinema. Tennis courts, playgrounds and restaurants are right in town. There is always something to do in Alexandria! Most of all you can take advantage of your vacation and relax.

This unique property can be used for businesses. There is room for meetings, team building activities, and a printer for your use. Bring your own paper. Train during the day and relax at night. Treat your employees to a stay.

This a perfect location for a 'Girls Getaway'. You can scrapbook, play games, chat, watch movies, etc. There is a card table perfect for puzzles or projects. Homeschool moms can bring your curriculum and do some planning!

Have a "Guys Getaway", family reunion, bridal shower, the ideas are endless!
