BEAUTIFUL SANDY BEACH AND BREATHTAKING SUNSETS !

Alexandria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

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!

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.

Judy Backhaus purchased this house in 2012

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 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.

Wonderful Home, Beach and Fishing!!

  • 5 of 5
Our week on Maple Lake was everything we hoped for and more. The house was clean and inviting with it's cheery colors. There was ample space and comforts for 10 of us ranging in ages from one to seventy+. We couldn't have been more pleased with the sandy beach and the wonderfully clean water. All ages enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat. The fishermen were happy to have caught sunfish from the boat and off the dock. Thanks "Getaway Group".

Maple Lake rental home by Alexandria, MN

The lake home was beautiful! So very clean and welcoming. The lake was small, quiet and very beautiful. Loved the outdoor patio. Decorated very well with bright colors and comfortable furniture. Not the brown grungy look that you see in most homes. Thank goodness. The owners were very professional and organized. Will rebook for next year.

We had a fantastic week at this lake property. Our boys enjoyed catching fish off of the dock
and playing with the kayaks and paddle boats. We enjoyed the clean and roomy cabin. The cabin
was stocked with everything that we could possibly need-even several flat screen televisions in
various rooms. We would strongly recommend this property to our friends and family.

Our idea of lake living!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing!

We stayed this past week with my husband and daughter (4) along with my 2 sisters and their husbands and kiddos (2 months, 2, 2 and 5 years old) and our mother.

It was PERFECT!
We enjoyed the patio, swimming in the crystal clear lake, kayaking (with rental), paddle boating (with rental), fishing off the dock, lounging on the comfortable furniture inside, making smores by the fire pit, walks with views of the lake, and making family meals in the fabulous kitchen!

There was nothing more we could have asked for on our stay!

We had the chance to meet the owners, and they are beyond friendly and accomodating! They felt like old friends and at this rate, will be because we loved it so much, we booked our week next year before we left!

We can't wait to come back and enjoy "our house" on the lake for a week!

Thank you for a wonderful and memorable week!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Nicole! A "getaway" should be relaxing, fun and worry-free, so we were thrilled that your stay turned out that way! Our house is definitely "your house" when you come to stay! Have a great school year----Judy and Julie

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. Your "Get Away" was perfect for us.
We enjoyed our time so very much that we are already booked again for next year. It was the perfect set up for our family group. The house was gorgeous, the owners were fantastic and we enjoyed our time getting to know them while we were there.
I would recommend this property highly especially to families with small kids. The kids could run around the house, go outside, play on the shore or in the water, and play in the large yard. It was perfect for all of the adults as well. We kayaked, road the paddle boat and went golfing.
It was wonderful to meet you, you are such great people and it shows in your home. Thank you so much for such a great experience!
