About the property

3 BR 2 BA cabin with Lake Minnetonka views from every room, quiet & private lot

Prime Lake Minnetonka location with an “up north” feel!

Situated on nearly an acre of wooded privacy, with 150 feet of south-facing Lake Minnetonka frontage and a large yard. Private and quiet wooded lot makes you feel like you are “up north” while being near Minneapolis/suburbs. Every room in the house has a lake view.

The cabin sleeps 10-12 people and is conveniently located 30 minutes west of Minneapolis on Lake Minnetonka. It is located 8 miles from downtown Wayzata, 8 miles from downtown Excelsior, and 3 miles from Mound.

There is dock space for your boat during your stay. There is room in the driveway for a boat trailer.

All rooms – kitchen, bedrooms and living rooms - have a panoramic view of the lake. The house is surrounded by nearly 1-acre of land, which is wooded for privacy from neighbors.

The cabin was just updated – bathrooms are new and clean, the kitchen is very functional with new appliances, and new carpet runs throughout the cabin.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed. The large second bedroom has a queen size bed and a bunk bed with a twin on top and full on the bottom. The bunk house has a queen bed, twin bed and full bed.

Note: We can provide high chair and pack and play upon request.

The cabin has two living areas, both with TVs. The main living area has a DVD player and a stereo with in-ceiling speakers in the living room and outdoor speakers on the deck. The cabin has basic cable and wireless internet.

Wake up to a beautiful sunrise right outside your window. Enjoy swimming in the lake, which has a nice sandy bottom and a sand beach area. Relax on the two decks, both steps from the lake. Enjoy a campfire in the outdoor fire pit, or lawn games in the large yard. For the kids, great climbing tree right next to the lake, and woods for them to play in. All activities are made even more enjoyable with a panoramic view of Lake Minnetonka.
