Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Excelsior - Elegant Lake Minnetonka Home

Peaceful And Relaxed Setting

Please Note: 30 day min.

This upscale 4 bedroom, 3 bath cottage-style lake home was recently redecorated in a casual and elegant style. Quiet and secluded yet walking distance to the historic town of Excelsior.

It is an entertainer's dream home! The great room is open and airy with lots of natural light, a cozy stone wood burning fireplace, custom crown molding and a variety of areas for relaxing and entertaining. It includes formal dining and additional sitting room areas with spectacular lake and garden views. A bayed breakfast room adjoins the kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite counter-tops.

The main level also includes a vaulted glass conservatory with garden walkout and wet bar, and a three season screened porch that includes exterior metal ‘hurricane’ blinds with a remote control. The hallway is back-lit by two charming window seat bays, and features a walk in laundry closet, coat closet, and pantry|storage.

There is one main floor guest bedroom and three upper level bedrooms that include a master suite with an open air deck, full bath, and a large dressing room and closet.

The lush lake-side yard is filled with gardens, patios and a sandy beach alcove. Brand new outdoor kitchen patio with 42" Wolf grill. Exquisite landscape lighting adds light along the pathway, and creates a subtle glow to highlight the garden beds.

Year-round activities can be enjoyed such as including boating, water-skiing, fishing, kayaking, swimming, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, and skating. Across the street is a regional trail that winds along the lake and is a favorite among bikers and walkers.

We have installed a brand new, high-end, wireless music system and apple TV for a wide selection of movies. There are three flat screen TVs.

Remodeled in 2015

About Amy

I'm a native Minnesotan who spent a lot of time on Lake Minnetonka growing up. I love the natural beauty of the lake and all it has to offer.

Amy purchased this house in 2010

Why Amy chose Lake Minnetonka

Location Location Location. Close to Minneapolis yet it feels like you are hundreds of miles away up north. Its also the best part of the lake - close to restaurants and shops by either walking, driving or boating. The water is so clear and clean - great for swimming right off the dock. Sandy beach. Tranquil morning kayaking.

This property is so serene and peaceful -- just perfect for relaxing and spending time with loved ones.

What makes this house unique

Year round activities right outside the front or back door! Boating, water skiing, swimming, sun bathing, long boarding, jet skiing, fishing, and a nearby skate park. Cross country ski, or snowshoe, out the back door in winter, and hike, bike or jog along the Regional Trail in the summer. The bike/ski trail is accessed right behind the home.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many VRBO and AirBnB properties in the past but this home is by far the best because of its location and the relaxing and welcoming feel of the property. It was such a special vacation that our family will never forget.
