About Kay Musech

Excelsior is charming and has the feel of a small city rather than a suburb. Some of our favorite pass times are sailing, boating, biking, walking, antiquing and playing with our 2 dogs in the huge park across the street.

Why Kay Musech chose Lake Minnetonka

We love the quiet small town feel but Excelsior also becomes busy and fun for family and friends during the summer. The 4th of July is a big event here and this home is right in the heart of it. A

Hello,

I just wanted to thank you for the use of your cottage in Excelsior Friday night. I loved the interior design, retro furniture and what you did with the all the remodeling. My son came out and we went to dinner at the Irish restaurant downtown - the food was excellent. It was so nice to be able to walk everywhere. Saturday morning I got up about 6:30 and could not believe all the people jogging, walking and biking at that time of day! It was a nice inspiration to get out and exercise! There also was a triathlon Saturday morning - we could see the swimmers from the front window. It was a really nice get away after a very busy week at work (and not too far to drive). Also thank you for the bottle of wine - that was so thoughtful!



Take care,

Jody

Husband, pup and I enjoyed that sweet immaculate little cottage and the location/street was so fun. Private, quiet, convenient for walks and concert in the park, grocery,. Nicely appointed interior.

Hope to come back again and again.

Great cottage in a great location. Loved the staircase. This house has so many details lacking in modern construction. Hope to make a return trip someday. Skol Vikings!

Wonderful, clean, we felt right at home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful visit. The home was clean and we had everything we needed. We did wish there was a space out front to sit in the mornings and enjoy the view of the lake! It was a great location with the park across the street!!
