Situated in a quiet neighborhood, it is the perfect place to relax, re-group and spend quality time with your family. Sunsets are beautiful and the sun simply dances on the crystal clear water.

We do our best to accommodate you in every way.

If you would like to bring your own boat, the public access is just down the road, making it easy to get your boat in and out of the water.

Alexandria is just minutes away and boasts wonderful shopping, restaurants, golf, a winery and much, much more. Rodina Golf Course is just a few miles south of MJ's, and Forada has two bars/restaurants with great food for the nights you don't want to cook!

MJ'S ON MAPLE is available for rent in the winter months (off-peak Season) as well! This is an ideal getaway for snowmobilers, ice fisherman and family gatherings. You can snowmobile across the lake and cross Highway 29 to get to Lake Reno. Sit by the cozy gas fireplace, read and relax!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I have a lifelong, wonderful relationship with beautiful Maple Lake and the great people here. My family owned a cabin down the beach from MJ's for over 35 years, but was sold in 1997. Growing up, we would spend our summers on Maple Lake, and I have fond memories of fishing, boating, exploring and all my summer friendships. I had always hoped to one day be 'back on the lake' and was very elated to be able to find property again on Maple Lake.

                      Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
                      MJ's is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We are a family-oriented vacation rental. You can have a personal vacation experience that you would not be able to find at a busy resort or multi-unit complex. Maple Lake is a spring fed lake, and is truly one of the best lakes around. Crystal clear water, excellent swimming, fishing and amazing sunsets are just a few of its' many attributes. A large yard, 100 ft of lake shore, numerous maple and birch trees create a great sense of privacy and beauty.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Relax, sit back and enjoy a worry-free vacation. Located on the NE side of Maple Lake, the evening sunsets are wonderful! Wake up to the loons calling and enjoy a cup of coffee on the dock. End your day with a cozy bonfire and enjoy the stars and moon casting a glow on the water. Create memories to last a lifetime for your family in this large, comfortable lake home. All you need to bring are groceries, beach towels, and your family! We provide everything else!
