Photos and Description of the Excelsior vacation cabin rental

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Want up North, but not the drive? This is the retreat for you. The beautifully decorated Lake Cabin is Perfect for a Romantic Couples getaway!! Big Island is located on Lake Minnetonka, only minutes from Minneapolis. The cabin is located on 1 acre of wooded land with a fabulous view of the lake. It is a wonderful get-away from all the pressures of life. Sit on one of the two decks and relax as you enjoy the views of boats sailing by and the glow of the amber setting sun!

Big Island is located between Excelsior and Wayzata, both of which are filled with restaurants and shops. You can drive your boat to the free public docking at either town. Excelsior is 2 miles away from cabin and Wayzata 4 miles away.A quick minutes boat ride to a fun fabulous dinner out on the lake! And if you want solitude, you can spend time hiking around the island and see where the original amusement park used to be.

This is a beautiful cabin where you can enjoy nature, yet still be close to urban delights.

*Please note: This property is accessible only by boat.

Mainland parking, dockage, or boat rental is not provided by owner. Foster Bros. Marine rents boats in Delano. Their phone# 763-972-3199

We are very excited about renting the cabin this year! It has been all remodeled, newly furnished, and beautifully decorated. Once people see, it they love it! The cabin is very upscale and comfortable with two decks.

Upper deck: overlooking the gorgeous view of the lake with two very comfortable chairs with ottomans to relax, read, or have your morning breakfast and coffee.

Lower deck (which sits off the water): has a high top table, swivel bar stools, red umbrella and potted flowers at your feet. There you can enjoy the setting sun with cocktails. There is a sandy beach with extra chairs to sit down and put your feet in the warm sand or build a sand castle!

Inside cabin features include:

-Beautiful woodwork

-Newly tiled floors

-New kitchen appliances and cabinets

-New bathroom with jetted tub

-Beautiful romantic open loft bedroom (which overlooks the living room)

Everything is beautifully decorated with an eye for details and enjoyment!

Tie up to the 75 foot dock. It's great for fishing and the sunnies are always biting!

*Fishers- This bay is one of Lake Minnetonka's prized bass fishings spots (walleyes, northerns, bass, and muskies).

A large fire pit, which overlooks the bay, is complete with large boulders to sit on to roast marsh mellows for s'mores. 4 new kayaks are available to rent, $50 for 3 days or $75 for the week, per kayak.

Remember, this property is accessible only by boat!

There are several full service marinas that are close to the island. For overnight vehicle and boat trailer parking there is one close at Grays Bay Landing, 17232 Grays Bay Blvd. Minnetonka, MN and in Orono - 3366 North Shore Drive, Orono, MN

We cannot do parties or more than 4 guests due to our septic and well systems. We also do not want the wear and tear of our property and furnishings. This is an upscale, exceptionally clean and well decorated cabin. It is perfect for a Romantic Couple Getaway!! We are excited to share our cabin with mature, responsible, and respectful renters so that the cabin will stay in great shape for years to come.
