If association living at a lake appeals to you and your budget is under $200,000, I have a new listing to tell you about. Tomorrow, one of my partners at Counselor Realty, Linda Akenson, will add a new listing to the Alexandria Multiple Listing Service. It is at Interlachen Shores (County Road 120 and close to Eddy’s Interlachen) and in this aerial photo, it is the home at the back left. Yes, your lake view is impeded by another home in this associationbut this a is and affordable and perfect three bedroom, 1 bathroom seasonal lake home with a list price of $185,000. The only drawback of this association is that pets aren’t allowed. It is a laid back and friendly group of people that take great care of this property at the north end of the lake. (update: it has sold)

I have been viewing your website now for about a year. It is fun to see the videos and the webcam. I lived in alex from 1969 to 1981 and graduated from Jefferson. My parents owned the association when it was a resort know as Orono resort and in also included the cabin to the left on the aerial view. That cabin was known as the Abbey cabin although I’m not sure why. My family bought the resort from Esther and Al Matthews. We vacation in Alex every year for a week in August and started this tradition four years ago. In that first year that we came up we were lucky enough to be allowed a tour of the home I grew up in (and my family built) which would be the second home back from the lake on the far right side. It was alot of fun to see the house again. I understand that in that past few weeks the four bedroom cabin on the lake (the one that blocks the 3 bedrooms view) was sold before it even got on the market as the owner had passed away. In fact, I was called by a friend and they offered to try and give me a chance to buy it. I probably wouldn’t have anyway as I would need to rent it and you can only rent it once in the summer. I was actually good friends with the Hoppe family that lived next door to the resort when I was a child (they still own the cabin, the family owns the Hoppe lumbar yards in Lincoln Nebraska), and also took care of the Wedum’s dogs Chip and Flash (springer spaniels) who had the home on the right on the resort (I’ve seen the huge new home there now.) Anyways, just thought you might like a little background on the property. I always wished we hadn’t sold the resort. We made many good friends from the people who stayed there. Thanks for the interesting articles and the ability to see broadway on the webcam.

What a treat to hear from you. Thank you so much.
Did you ever meet Claire Hoppe? It was so sad to have her leave this life. She is missed.
David Thompson says
Yes of course. She was the one who was there the most. I was good friends with Tad who is my age and is now a lawyer in California. His father is John Hoppe I believe and Claire I think was John’s mother or his aunt. The other Hoppe that is my age is Brian Hoppe and I don’t remember what is father’s name is. I talked to Tad for the first time in over 30 years the other day and we spent an hour remembering the days when we put on ski shows for the resort folks as children. By the way Tom Akenson was an English teacher at Jefferson when I was there, but I was never in his class. You probably know my brother Rob who still lives in Alex. Thanks again for the website.

What year did you graduate? My class was 1987 and Tom was my English teacher for a year. Now, he is a friend and partner. Love Linda and Tom!
