|A Vacation Rental.....
Glenwood is located in West-Central Minnesota in the heart of lake
country. It is approximately 120 miles northwest of the Twin Cities and
100 miles southeast of Fargo. It is just 13 miles south of I-94 from
Alexandria. Glenwood is a wonderful, family vacation town.
Our home, The Hermitage, is located approximately two miles west of Glenwood on
the quiet Long Beach road.
The Hermitage is a lovely, old home that has been in
our family since my grandparents built it in 1920, with rocks from
the lake. We have
renovated it for summer vacationing families. It is on 75 feet of
lakefront with a private dock and boatlift.
|Lake Minnewaska is the 13th largest of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes.
basin was carved out by glaciers thousands of years ago. As well as
being known for it's beauty, it is also a prime vacation spot for
boaters and fishermen. The lake, with its 24-mile circumference, has
some of the smoothest and warmest water for water-skiing that you will ever
experience!! We always marvel at the wide-open water with no boat
