I have lived on Lake Minnetonka for many years, and getting to downtown Wayzata in ONE MINUTE is the BEST.

We are 1 mile to the Best Sunset location on lake Minnetonka - it's very important. Each night take a 5 minute boat ride to the best sunset on Lake Minnetonka (Robinson's bay has a 4 mile view - for water sunsets).

WAYZATA BAY IS THE ONLY SPRING WATER BAY ON LAKE MINNETONKA, (CLEAR WATER) 80' Deep Bay, NO WEEDS, SANDY BEACH Great for Swimming.

No Bridges and 1 minute BY BOAT, to Downtown Wayzata for your RESTAURANTS & SHOPPING. LARGE PUBLIC CITY DOCK.

OTHER BAYS have shallow water (5-6' deep) so weeds grow - causing smell or boating problems by July and NOISE FROM FAST RUNNING BOATS, BRIDGES and long trips to Sunset locations.

WE'RE IN A QUIET BOAT ZONE, so 3 MPH Slow/Quiet boat activity. Fun to watch slow boat activity, with a Long 1+ Mile View over water.

COMPLETELY REMODELED BRAND NEW HOUSE INSIDE/OUT including: All New Windows, New Air Conditioning, Completely New Kitchen with New Stove/Microwave/Oven/Dishwasher, Granite Counter tops, New 25' GLASS WINDOW (Marvin Sliding Doors) on First Floor and SECOND FLOOR - GREAT VIEWS over lake.

All Window treatment/drapes are New. Electric circuit box, outlets/lights and plumbing New.

All Furniture is New: Beds, sofa's, Chairs, 50' TV's HD, Comcast Recordable HD with HBO/SHOWTIME INCLUDED.

The Main house is a 4 bedroom , 3 bathroom house with 2 boat docks (up to 30' boat) and is located on the South shore of Wayzata Bay. Guest house available to sleep 4 more and is completely remodeled brand new furnished same as Main house. Internet/wifi/42' TV/HD and New Air conditioning.

We have a MAIN FLOOR BEDROOM (QUEEN BED), Two steps/stairs to get to Dock or House. The yard is flat and 225 feet long, and its on a dead end street, which is quiet and safe for the kids to play.

The GUEST HOUSE (BRAND NEW) is a 1 bedroom house complete with full kitchen, full bathroom, bedroom w/Queen bed and living room with Queen size sofa/sleeper, Washer/Dryer, 42' TV/LCD HD DVD and WiFi internet (Comcast Business service) for faster internet/Video's, and its own dock for a boat up to 25'. Granite Counter tops in Kitchen & Bathroom with 14' Ceilings with Leather furnitue, office desk and a BBQ looking over a great flower garden area.

1000 yards away is the intersection of Hwy 101 & Minnetonka blvd for the Best food stores, Restuarants, and other services.

The other locations on Lake Minnetonka are 20-35 minutes farther away from these two cities. Our House is the best area for docking sail/power boats (up to 30 feet) because its protected from the normal Southwestern winds and power boat traffic - NO LOUD BOAT TRAFFIC (No Wake Zone). No waves or wind which keeps the boats protected from large waves at the dock.

I have been living on the lake for 30 years - and you will love this location. I waited for many years to get this location - Just to get to downtown Wayzata easily.

About Scott Sorenson

I had to wait 15 years to buy this house/LOT because they never come up for sale on Wayzata bay. Wayzata bay, on Lake Minnetonka is close to the city of Wayzata and downtown Minneapolis. Everything you want to buy, like food etc. is just 1/2 mile away. Wayzata is a spring feed lake so its clear and no weeds - great for swimming. I have been renting this house for only 1 year, but I have been renting out my other homes in Naples, Florida for 8 years so I am organized and know what people want when on vacation. Everything you would ever want is at the house because its my main house and I left everything in place to use: 50' Plasma TV (2) new furniture, BBQ and all the linen and kitchen equipment you'll ever need. You can reach me when anything goes wrong.

Scott Sorenson purchased this house in 1994

Why Scott Sorenson chose Wayzata

Wayzata bay is a DEEP WATER bay close to Downtown Wayzata, so its the best location on Lake Minnetonka. Spring feed clear water, no weeds, Deep Water always, and a low speed (no wake zone) traffic. Wayzata bay is close to Hwy 101/Minnetonka Blvd where all the shopping is: grocery stores, resturants, hardware stores, excercise clubs, gasoline and wine shops/on/off sales. the regional mall is only 2 miles away and the best golf courses (public) in all of Minneapolis 5 miles away (Rush Creek GC). 1 mile to 494/394 which is the freeway circling the city. 20 minutes to the International airport (MSP). this location is beautiful during the month of September for fall colors and great weather. See my web site to see more pictures etc.

What makes this house unique

Its a 4 bedroom house with great views over the lake and a quiet street. Boating docks for your rental pontoon or other speed boats you may want to rent. Howard's Point rents the boats and are nice people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott, Thanks for letting me stay at your house because the location is the best. We enjoyed the new furniture, TV/Stereo and kitchen equipment for us to cook each day. The boat dock and water is great for swimming, and the stores for food are really close. Its very quiet and we will be back. Thanks again Kirk.

Title is fine

  • 5 of 5
Great location except for trying to go for a bike ride or walk with stroller. Coming out of the area where the house is located is difficult with traffic. Would be nice to have a side walk in that section so it is not so dangerous for about 2 blocks. After that you can go into a neighborhood with playgrounds and trails and it is great. The house was great. It was pretty clean and we received fast service for a plugged bathtub and request to get the dock in. Could have used more deep cleaning and dusting although we understand the tight timetable turn around.
The interior photo's were very accurate. The exterior photo's were a bit more unclear. We did not realize that there was a road/bridge directly across the water that you see when sitting outside but the noise was minimal. I would recommend it to a friend and actually a friend came by and said they would keep the place in mind after they move this summer for when they want to come back to Minnesota for a visit. Como park zoo, and Mall of America were places we visited and enjoyed. Also, enjoyed the nearby boardwalk and parks.. All in all the house was great and we appreciated the wonderfully equipped kitchen and bathrooms with shampoo, toilet paper and paper towels. Great access to the water from the dock and for swimming or fishing or boating. Nice that it was located in the slow wake zone of the lake so that there was little wake/noise from passing boats. Wonderful outdoor patio, gas grill and fire-pit. Beautiful sunrises over the lake.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your nice comments. The house should be cleaned perfect when you arrive so I will have Andrew deep clean the house this week end again. It's a big job to make sure everything is great but I will keep working on it. Walking on our dead end street is very private and safe, so you were talking about the street 300 yards away, and it could use a sidewalk. A project did start this week by the city, which will add sidewalks and more landscaping, and better control the intersection. I hope you enjoyed downtown Wayzata because its great for food etc. Thanks for your nice comments about the house and yes everybody loves it. Scott

Great way to spend oiur 3 months while waiting for our new home to be built!

  • 5 of 5
This was the ideal setup for our family. We needed a fully funirshed rental for 3 months while our new home was being built. It was great to take advantage of the last few weeks of warm weather on the lake and be close to everything we need while we were in transition.

The home is literally steps from the water and downtown Wayzata is seen across the bay and a short boat or wave runner ride away. The home has a great deck with a nice grill. The inside is recently updated and will comfortably sleep 8. This lake home is ideal for anyone when wants to experience Lake Minnetonka or is looking for a convenient and fun option for short term living.

Owner's Response: Julie I'm glad you enjoyed all my work when I completely remodeled the house, and organize it for 8 people to enjoy the lake. The location is the best part, and that's very close to Downtown Wayzata for all the activity/shopping/food etc. There is nothing else I could do to make the house in better shape, All New Windows, Air Conditioning, Kitchen/Appliances & Furniture. Thanks Scott

Great location on Minnetonka

  • 5 of 5
House is located in a great spot on the lake, with access to nearby towns by car or by boat very easy, and yet a feeling of seclusion and quite despite being so close to everything. The descriptions and pictures are spot on. Overall a great house and location that we return to now annually as a great place to gather the grandparents and have a place "away" yet close!

Nice improvements this year to the house as highlighted, and in particular steps were built into the rock wall to allow easy access to the swimming area by the dock.

Owner's Response: John - Glad you like the improvements to the interior house and beach access. The location is the BEST as being on Wayzata Bay allows quick access to downtown Wayzata and enjoying the only Spring Feed Bay on Lake Minnetonka. Close to everything you want but still very quiet. Its a BRAND NEW HOUSE now with a 5th Bedroom in our Guest house if you need more room. The New Air Conditioning is very important when its hot outside. Thanks again John. Scott & Andrew (manager)

Small Beach House

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the smaller guest house on the property with my friend just after a major upgrade to the house.
The smaller house is clean, spacious, light and efficient as you can see in the last pictures which show it.
The bedroom side is quiet and comfortable. The kitchen is easy to use and features many items needed.
The entertainment and main living area is enjoyable and well set up.
The location of the house is very convenient to shopping and yet in a quiet area. Access to the lake is very convenient. This is one of the best bays of the lake.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable experience and great way to be on Lake Minnetonka.
Thanks, Scott- I'm looking forward to next time!

Owner's Response: Jack - I had fun remodeling the Guest house to 100% Brand new, because the new 14' ceiling and New appliances, Cabinets, Granite Counter tops in both Kitchen and Bathroom, 42" TV Comcast/HBO/Showtime and fast internet makes this house great for short vacations or all summer long. New windows and track lighten in the ceiling was fun to do. Enjoy the lake and boating.
