location was phenomanol; there was too much decor for our taste, but that seemed to be her personal style. except for an unclean shower downstairs and unclean microwave; all was good. steps off to the right side coming out of front door need some repair. notes in house were helpful

Response from Patricia:
The comment about the unclean shower and microwave was discussed with my cleaning person as she is normally very through! Cleanliness is extremely important to us and these items indeed had been overlooked. Always an effort is made to improve and to strive for complete guest satisfaction!

Location, Location, Location Great home in a great location overlooking beautiful Lake Minnetonka and all within walking distance to shops, restaurants, grocery store, and more! Everything in kitchen was upgraded and was well stocked of dishes, utensils, etc. Clean bathrooms, and very eclectic décor We loved it and look forward to going back sometime.

Great location, very responsive host. Perfect spot for having fun in Excelsior. This is an older home, so expect some imperfections, i.e., worn carpet, some lighting challenges.

This is a great space to enjoy all that Excelsior has to offer! Calm, serene and fabulous views, yet close to all the action during the many activities offered here. A beautiful week!

Cozy and wonderful home with a full and well-equipped kitchen. There are views of the lake from the kitchen and some living room windows. A true artist home with lots of unique touches inside and places to sit and enjoy the views outside. Would not recommend for a family with small children as there are many things which could break including a beautiful baby grand piano. We have teens, so it was perfect for us! The lake is across the street and there are various boat tours. A short walk will take you to the main street in town where there are lots of quaint shops and restaurants.

I come from a long history of lake life having grown up on Lake Bemidji. I was blessed in 2004 to be able to purchase my dream home in Excelsior. I have enjoyed creating beautiful spaces both inside and out with lovely gardens, patios, and comfortable areas to relax. Although I currently live in California (can't take the cold!) I continue to enjoy my Excelsior home as I am able with family and friends. I am pleased to share this wonderful and magical space with my guests.
