About the property

3 Bedrooms 1.5 Bathroom & Bunkhouse with 1/2 bath - Sleeps 9

Welcome to The Water's Edge Cabin!

We can accommodate small groups for that retreat/ girl’s weekend getaway you've been planning, bring the family for vacation, or make it a second honeymoon with just the two of you.

MAKE YOUR RESERVATION NOW FOR THE SUPERBOWL!! Nice quiet location 55 minutes from the stadium. (Special event pricing, contact owner for details please)

Maple Lake boasts over 800 acres of great fishing where you can enjoy boating, water skiing, and swimming. We also offer canoe rental.

PONTOON rental is available from Bremer pontoon rental. You would need to make arrangements for this yourself, it is a local company that has very nice up-to-date boats available. They book quickly so you will have to be in touch with them as soon as you know your reservation dates.

Our newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 1 ½ bath lake home has 2 gas fireplaces in 2 separate living rooms. We have a gorgeous knotty pine bunk house with ½ bath that sleeps 2 and provides your own private retreat. The eat-in kitchen connects to our massive upper deck (with gazebo) so BBQ’s are a breeze. (Please note, one bedroom is considered non conforming as it has no window and is in the lower level, but it is near a walk out sliding door)

The downstairs fireplace room walks out to our lower deck with ample seating right over the lake. A fire ring overlooking the lake is great for roasting marshmallows and listening to loon calls.

Included are a washer and dryer and air conditioning.

Sorry no pets or smokers please.


Nearby are the charming towns of Annandale, Monticello, and Buffalo with antique stores, bowling, golfing, restaurants, shops, and other treasures. The Albertville Outlet Mall and Cabellas are about 20-25 minutes away.

See a TWINS, VIKINGS, TIMBERWOLVES, WILD or GOPHER GAME in downtown Minneapolis/St. Paul. The Mall of America is just over an hour away.

About Owner/Manager

We are a happily married couple of over 35 years, with 6 grown children, and several grandkids. I grew up spending summer at my folks cabin, and after we had our family, spent many weekends together there. Now we love having our own place. Family is very important to us, so we have put a lot of energy into making our place a great getaway for families. We love to work on projects together, go boating, have bonfires, and play softball.

We love this lake living so much we bought another property on this lake and are building another cabin ourselves.

Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2006

Nice quiet getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Very close to the lake. Fishing was good. Dock was great. Cabin Not flashy or high end but adequate. No wifi or cable tv. Bunkhouse was a nice area for our teen daughter.

Cute place with lots of amenities. Pretty views and great decks!

  • 5 of 5

The only downside is that you’re packed in a bit tight and not a lot of room for kids to run around. Overall excellent value and experience.
