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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Minnesota

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Fabulous Week and Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Maple Lake!!! The weather aloud us to enjoy swimming, fishing, the lily pad, paddle board and the new kayaks that were provided with the cabin. Everything there is perfect to allow our whole family to enjoy a week of fun. The addition of the freezer this year also made it so easy to keep everything for the week. Thank you Mary for sharing this awesome place with our family!!

Family Vacation 2014

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year staying and it could not have been better. The house is always clean and up to date. This year a boat lift had been added which was awesome. The outdoor areas are great for family fun. We only spent one night in the house. The rest of the week we were on the deck down by the shore or around the campfire. The steps to the lake new rope railing adds a unique touch to the setting. Thanks for the great place to stay!!!!
