Lake Carlos Villas
Reviews of Lake Carlos Villas
Our visit was in May, 2003.. we had a comfortable 2-bedroom, 1-bath, full kitchen unit with a gas fireplace.. the staff is friendly and competent... the ownership of the resort is interesting in that the Vacation Ownership Assosciation (VOA) holds the deed and the members inturn hold perpetual right- to-use certificates.. this facilitates transfer of ownership and incurs only modest transfer fees...
This is a rather small resort (about 20 units) .. it is not new, but well maintained.. the units are very clean and bright .. an interesting feature of the resort is a stand alone building which houses a library and which is reserved for adults (a retreat from the kiddies)... also available are both indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a miniature golf course... the resort is located on Lake Carlos, which is a very large lake with a fair amount of fishing and boating activity.. the immediate area offers many attractions including antique shops, golf and state parks..
The Runestone museum in Alexandria is a not- to-be-missed attraction... it is based on evidence that the vikings pre-dated Columbus in settling in the 'New World".. it is a VERY impressive museum for a relatively small town... Alexandria is a thriving community about 2 hours drive northwest of the Twin Cities (MSTP)... Joe T.
Lake Carlos villas is a quiet and peaceful resort. Great for fishing. You even get a fishing boat for the week. Very nice units. A GREAT place for a nice relaxing vacation. We enjoyed it there very much. Stayed there twice and hope to again soon.
