The space

The Orange room comfortably accommodates 2 people with a contemporary King bed. The Green room fits 2 people with it's cozy Queen bed. Both rooms offer wifi, ample closet space and crisp,clean and comfy linens. Relax or watch TV in the den, belly up to the owner's bar, or grab a cup of coffee and some granola before heading out to relax by the lake. We have 4 seasons of fun in Minnesota, so you may get to swim, watch the loons, throw in a fishing line from the dock, canoe, make friends with the local ice-fisherman, leaf-peep, roast marshmallows, build a snowman or ski across the lake!

The guest bedrooms are private, and the den and bar area are shared, although the owners will typically be on the upper level of the house. The bar area has a microwave, dorm refrigerator, coffee maker, snacks and an ice machine. In order to ensure reasonable amounts of privacy for everyone, the upper level will not be available to guests unless we specifically invite you to join us. Guests can access the lower level patio, back yard and docks. The lower level bathroom will generally be for the exclusive use of guests. We will only accept reservations for both rooms at the same time if the guests are related, or part of a group of friends that are comfortable sharing the bathroom. Max number of guests in the house is 4. We do not accept children under the age of 10.

We are former innkeepers, so we enjoy interacting with guests, making recommendations and providing the skinny on the Lake Minnetonka scene, local restaurants, music and recreation, but we both work and may not always be available, so our preference is for guests that are independent, low-key, respect our home and can follow the check-in instructions.

We love that we are located right on Lake Minnetonka, and can explore the lake by boat, ski's or snowshoes! Check out the party scene on Big Island and explore the many unique lakeside communities. There are fun independent shops and restaurants all around the area, as well as trails for biking, running and walking. It's a quick jaunt to the Mall of America, the MN State Fairgrounds, an explosion of local breweries, Twins baseball stadium and much more.

You will need a car to most easily navigate the Lake Minnetonka area. Public transit here is limited. Parking at our house is outside on the far left side of the driveway. Car rental is easy to arrange if you are arriving at MSP airport. If you opt to take a day trip into Minneapolis or St. Paul you can park and then explore via our new light rail system. Biking is also a great way to explore the lake area. Don't be surprised to see big packs of lycra-clad cyclists navigating the lake spring, summer and fall! Come winter you will see snowmobiles and cars and trucks on the lake!

Wifi, cable TV, air-conditioning, linens and towels provided. Access to laundry room, canoe, fishing gear, hair-dryers, iron, ironing board, fire pit.

Pontoon and speed boat excursions may be able to be arranged for an additional charge. Hosts can provide more information on this during your stay.

Wonderful lakeside home. Easy access to Excelsior and Wayzata both. The bed was comfortable, the common space was a joy, and the beach was amazing.
