We have great neighbors next door. Our sister built the house. She sold it to a nice couple. We couldn't have asked for better neighbors. Its close, but we're comfortable with it. A cozy warm space for sitting by the fire, writing at your desk, or gazing at the lake.

We loved the little cottage on the lake. The cottage is just what the pictures showed; cozy and quaint. The sunsets were spectacular! We went home well rested and ready to go back as soon as we can!

The little red cottage has a quaint, cabin-like feel that provided us plenty of relaxation while still remaining close to the cities. The property right on Lake Minnetonka is close to neighbors, but still feels like your own. What really made our stay was Arlyn’s hospitality - sh…

Cozy but comfortable, with a small piece of beach and a large lawn for kids. Great sunsets and a great host round it out! We would go again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful, clean, cozy cabin with beautiful lake views. A unique find on Lake Minnetonka. Arlyn is very responsive, generous and flexible, and her cabin is full of interesting items and everything you'd need to have a great vacation in an adorable neighborhood.
