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.
Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose Forada
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!

What a wonderful home to gather familly!
We absolutely loved this home. It is so spacious, clean, and comfortable. She has adorable decorating ideas. We felt very comfortable.
We always gather family which is harder to do as our kids are growing up. Our time together is about bonding, cooking, games, relaxing and having fun. There are so many games there that we would not have needed to bring our own.
The screened porch is wonderful. The backyard has a beautiful deck. My family always humors me each year and I do photo shoots of everybody. The rock staircase to the water was an amazing backdrop for pictures. We had many wonderful pictures just within the backyard. It may have rained and stormed out the whole weekend our kids and their girlfriends/boyfriends were there, but we had an amazing time.
We always cook together when we gather. The kitchen was very well-stocked with pots and pans and dishes.
We enjoyed a fire one evening that it didn't rain. It's so quiet and relaxing in that neighborhood.
I highly recommend this house rental. You need to book over a year ahead of time and that says a lot about the quality provided here. We hope with the timing of our vacation picks that we can return next year.
Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm so glad you and your family had a great time together...that's what it is all about! I know the weather didn't cooperate for you, and want to thank you again for all your help after the storms. We so appreciate renters like you, and is the main reason we offer our lake home for family vacations.
I hope you will return next summer or fall-we would love to see you again!
We had a wonderful time with 6 adults and 2 grandkids(2 and 1 month). We basically hung out, read.
The home was the perfect size for our family. Basement was great for our Grandson to run around. Highlight was my grandson and I took a little walk and visited with John at his fish decoy shop. What a kind, generous soul. We spent part of the morning shoveling snow and playing outside. Cooked some brats on the grill- very nice Weber grill. Had a great campfire on Friday afternoon and evening. Would come back in a heartbeat!!
Great house, great host
Perfect stay on this lovely hours at the lake. There's everything you need, the house is big and the view is stunning. Mary is a nice host who s promptly to respond you're requests.
We definitely loved our stay
Time and place together
This lake home had welcoming spaces - - - the screened porch, the deck, the fire pit, the dock - - - for our family to be together, to talk, to have fun. The number of beds was adequate, the kitchen good for meal preparation, the laundry a convenient extra. To top it off, the weather was pleasant!
Thank you for your kind review! We enjoyed have you as our guests and hope you will stay with us again!
Great overall amenities!
Really enjoyed the mix of the large dining/living area, together with the screened porch and deck. We could light a fire in the fire pit and enjoy it from both locations! New Washer/dryer, newly remodeled bathrooms. Lots of space and beds. Sorry we didn't discover the 'Lily Pad' until late in the trip - the kids loved it. Only 10 Mins from Alex (and a Culvers - yea!). Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for your kind review and we are so glad you had a good time on your vacation! We enjoyed having you and your family as guests and hope you will stay with us again in the future!
Great place to relax.
Really enjoyed the Lilly pad. Great place to relax.
Always a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us!
