Lake Carlos Villas
Welcome to Lake Carlos-Your Home Away From Home:
Lake Carlos Villas is an 18-unit cooperative located on beautiful Lake Carlos in central Minnesota. We are managed by our owners through a Board of Directors. The developers have been gone for many years so there are no sales people or pressure sales.
It provides an ideal vacation for those seeking serene lakeside relaxation, or the fun activities of nearby Alexandria. Guests can enjoy a lakefront beach, the resort’s own 14-foot fishing boat, all-season indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, game room, and lakeside walking and biking paths. Kids can romp in the playground, while adults can enjoy the adults-only club room and library. Lake Carlos Villas has provided an enjoyable get-away with golfing, swimming, and fishing in the summer; ice fishing, skiing, and snowmobiling in the winter. There are laundry facilities on-site. The villas are close to shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, and entertainment. Cook up your own catch of the day on a lakeside grill, spend the evening relaxing by a fire, and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of this unique retreat.
There are two 1-bedroom units, two 3-bedroom units, two 2-bedroom units with lofts, and twelve 2-bedroom units. In addition to the individual units, there are other facilities, including an adult club house/library, an outdoor pool (summer only), an indoor pool, and a large hot tub by the indoor pool.
Lake Carlos is the largest of a group of lakes in Minnesota’s Alexandria lakes region. The clear, deep waters of this glacial lake make it an outstanding attraction for fishing, boating, waterskiing, and scuba diving. Beautiful Lake Carlos State Park rests on its northern shore. Visitors to the area can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, golf, tennis, and exploring the other nearby lakes. Winter brings excellent cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. In and around the lake area and town of Alexandria, visitors can enjoy shops, restaurants, entertainment, cruises, helicopter and airplane rides, and the Carlos Creek winery. For family fun, there’s a water park, Casey’s Amusement Park, and a petting zoo. The Runestone museum in Alexandria, presenting evidence that pre-Columbian Vikings settled in the ‘New World,” is a must-see.
