Location & Attractions



We are located in west central MN about 2 hours northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Our villa is off Highway 29 halfway between Glenwood and Alexandria (6 miles from either town).   Our address is:
10099 - 218th Avenue
Glenwood, MN  56334.   

Directions from Minneapolis/St. Paul:
-Follow I-94 West (toward St. Cloud)
-Take the Alexandria/Glenwood exit #103
-Turn left toward Glenwood
-Go 6 miles to 218th Avenue (our frontage road) and turn right.   This is a sharp right hand turn and easy to miss - you will see Lake Reno on your right about a half mile before our turn.   The Green Iguana Restaurant and a Pope County sign are also on your right about 100 feet before our turn.  When we see the Pope County sign, we move onto the right shoulder and start slowing down.   If you reach the Lake Reno Resort, you have gone too far.
-Go to Villa # 9 on 218th Avenue
