About Judy Backhaus
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
Why Judy Backhaus 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.
What makes this House unique
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.

2nd annual family vacation
Had 8 adults and two children. Property was very clean. Beautiful clear lake. Sandy beach area great for kids to play. Flat yard and closeness to lake a big plus. A little difficult getting all of us out at 9:00 am, but we did it!
Something for all ages
We had a great time. We had ages of 3-65. Plenty of space for 6 adults & 4 kids. All enjoyed the paddle boards, kayak, and paddle boat. Kids pulled in lots of fish off the dock! Guys caught some big walleye! Rented a pontoon & jet ski from local business & had tons of fun! Even got grandpa on a jet ski!
We are so glad that all of you enjoyed your stay at our lake house ! And caught lots of fish !!!
What a great vacation home. With 4 children, youngest is age 2, the flat sandy beach was just perfect. She loved playing in the sand while the rest of the family swam. The home was well furnished, super clean, and conveniently laid out. We will definitely return!
So glad that you enjoyed our property! Please come again !!!
I would for sure stay here again! Julie and Judy were great. The cabin so beautiful and perfect location!
