About Linda Konat

We have been blessed to enjoy the beauty of Fagerness Point and Lake Minnetonka for over 20 years. Following a fire in the Fall of 2009, we had to completely re-build our home. We re-built on the home's original footprint but incorporated all of the necessities for living well in 2012.

Linda Konat purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Linda Konat chose Lake Minnetonka

Our lovely cottage is designed to remind you of simpler times but with all of the luxuries of 2012. Our cottage is one of only a few that remain on Lake Minnetonka. It is a magical place and retains a beautiful old-world charm. We know you will enjoy every minute of your stay and will want to come back again and again.

What makes this cottage unique

Lake front cottage with privacy yet 5 minutes from lively entertainment, beautiful walking/biking paths etc.

Awesome sunsets. Boat rental right across the bay. Great food in Wayzata. Very relaxing. Quick trips to watch the Twins win downtown. Mall Of America and Minehaha Falls..

We had an awesome time and would recommend this get away to anyone!

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My review is VERY overdue (sorry, Linda!). I stayed in this cottage in the late Fall and it was amazing. We were coming from the East and I was hopeful that it would be 'ok'...I had never stayed at a vrbo property and didn't know the area. I hoped at the least it would be clean. This cottage FAR exceeded my expectations. It was a 5 star property, but better. It had a more personal connection. As other reviewers mentioned, it was recently redone and everything was designed and built with such character. The finishings - the towels, sheets, etc. - are of the highest quality. I want Linda to come redo my own home! Linda was such a gracious host. The cottage was prepared perfectly for our arrival and she gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and attractions. I hope to stay again during a next trip to MN! Thank you for everything, Linda!

Perfect Lake Escape

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week on Lake Minnetonka. The photos do not do the the cottage justice. Everything was so neat and new that we felt like the first guests to stay at the cottage. We really appreciated the extra touches like a fresh bag of ice in the freezer and the basket of fluffy beach towels. Linda was a fabulous host and we hope to return again, maybe to experience the Lake in the wintertime.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this charming cabin by the lake.....Linda has thought of everything to make it like home. The cabin has been recently renovated and is in excellent shape with all new decorating and furniture indoor and out.Pretty flowers and landscaping. Comfortable beds. Sleeps 4 comfortabley. Ideal for a couple. NIce dock with good fishing. Swimming right off the dock. 2 car garage and room for two cars in the driveway for having guests over. Close to Fletcher's for casual dining and people watching. Rent a boat and you are minutes away. Interesting and friendly neighbors. Hope to be back next year.

Charming Cottage on Lake Minnetonka

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 30th Wedding Anniversary, it was the perfect place! The owners did an outstanding job of making us feel at home the moment we arrived. The place was very clean and we loved all the modern conveniences, but appreciated the feel of an old-time cottage. We brought our boat so we were able to explore the lake, which has many great restaurants. We also had pretty good luck fishing too... It was one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations we've ever had and have recommended this place to many of our friends and family.
