Alexandria house description

WE ARE NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR THE SUMMER OF 2015 !

A great spot for a 'Getaway' for your family or friends vacation! You deserve it, so let the Alexandria area give you the time away that you need!!!

Beautiful, two year old lake home on a private, sandy beach...it doesn't get much better than this in lake country! Gorgeous sunsets, water fun and spacious lawn will make your vacation experience everything that you could imagine!

We want our guests to feel a true 'beach house' atmosphere, so our decor emphasizes this atmosphere in an upscale way!
Our property has 150 feet of lakeshore, with a gradual entry which makes it perfect for swimmers of all ages. The shoreline is a continuous flat, sandy beach where children can play and build sandcastles, while adults relax nearby in the water or on the patio deck. The yard has plenty of space for yard games, bonfires, and outdoor fun.

As you enter our newly renovated and totally updated lake home, you will quickly notice the beach/cottage theme that is transferred throughout the entire house. Everything is brand new! The entryway is welcoming and has ample room to store your belongings. As you enter the Great Room, with its vaulted ceiling, you will be impressed with the space to gather together as family or friends. The kitchen is attached to this area and the new white cabinets, center island, and stainless steel appliances make it an efficient and friendly space for eating and visiting. Three of the four bedrooms have queen size beds and the fourth bedroom has a set of bunk beds, along with a roll-away bed. Both bathrooms are easily accessible and have showers and/or tubs for your convenience. As you leave the Great Room/Kitchen area to go out to the lake, you will quickly notice one of the best features of our home.....no steps or hills to navigate! Just go down a few steps from the deck and you are on our paver patio with the sidewalk that stretches 50 feet to the sandy beach! Relax on the patio or by the paver- fire-pit as you enjoy the beautiful sunsets of Maple Lake! Minnesota evenings don't get much better than this!

Maple lake is a clear, spring fed lake that is one of the most desirable lakes in the area for swimming and fishing. It is rated as one of the top 12 lakes in Minnesota for walleye fishing, although you can also catch bass, northern pike, crappies and sunfish in abundance. Yes, fish can be caught right off the end of our dock!!!

Experience the Alexandria area by shopping at the quaint downtown stores, visiting the mall, exploring the many wonderful golf courses or indulging at the numerous restaurants. In addition, children of all ages will enjoy Casey's Amusement Park or the Arrowwood water park. One could enjoy sporting events such as watching Beetles Baseball games or Nascar races at the Vikingland Speedway, or shooting trap at the nearby Trap Shooting range. The Carlos Creek Winery is another area favorite.

In addition to the summer fun, we also offer weekend, or weeklong packages for fishing, snowmobiling, scrap-booking, or family holiday gatherings throughout the remainder of the year. We have a hard-side fishhouse placed on the lake, ready for occupancy. We will have the holes open and the house ready for those who are looking for a winter fishing experience. Snowmobilers... there is a trail that runs very close to our cabin. You will enjoy miles of riding in the Alexandria area.

Those interested in scrapbooking will appreciate the tools we have available for your use in addition to the peaceful and relaxing setting.

There is certainly something for everyone's entertainment pleasure!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We call ourselves the 'Getaway Group'....we are two couples that saw the opportunity to own a lake home together as one more great adventure for the four of us to do together. The 'men' in our group are both self employed, so have flexibility in their schedules to accommodate the needs of our guests. The 'women' are both educators, and work together in the Alexandria school system. They also travel together and host women's trips called 'All About Me Getaways'. The four of us have deep roots in the Alexandria area, and have always loved Maple Lake. We look forward to serving you in our new lake home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
                  Maple Lake is known as one of the cleanest lakes in the Alexandria area. Lee and Judy were born and raised in the Alexandria area, and Mitch and Julie have spent summers on Maple Lake with Julie's family for 35 years. We love the peaceful, low traffic, relaxing environment this home provides. When looking for 'just the right place' to purchase, our criteria was simple... would we want to vacation here ouselves?... our answer was ABSOLUTELY! :-) We hope you will love it as much as we do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Alexandria area is ripe with friendly people, much to do, and beautiful lakes! You will quickly understand Alexandria's tagline, 'Easy to get to, hard to leave', once you have spent some time at our home. Your days could be as full or as relaxing as you wish for them to be. You can choose to be busy with water sports, fishing and swimming, or you can choose to relax while enjoying the beautiful view and relaxing location. If you are looking for a little more adventure, Alexandria is only 5 minutes away where you will find several golf courses, a live performance theatre, a movie theatre, many wonderful restaurants, the Central Lakes Bike Trail, and shopping of all kinds. Alexandria has a lovely downtown area, particularly for women who have a fondness for boutiques, antique stores, and quaint little shops. Relaxing by the bonfire while enjoying the beautiful sunset will be the perfect culmination for your fun-filled days. This fall and winter we will be open year around; for ice fishing, snowmobiling, scrap-booking, and winter getaways.
