QUAINT COTTAGE ON 85 FT OF COOKS BAY

Mound Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This charming Lake Cottage will take you back in time when life was simple. This property is tree-lined and private with a gorgeous western view of Cook's Bay on Lake Minnetonka. When you are here, you are truly in your own world enjoying the water, serenity and recreation. Enjoy the fabulous new gourmet kitchen, gardens, or sit in the Adirondack Chairs and watch the vivid panoramic sunsets high above the waterline.

Sleeping 6 people, the cottage is situated on 90 feet of private lake shore on Cooks Bay. Just one block away is a city park offering tennis, baseball, basketball, a woods and field, and for families, a playground for the younger children. The town also has an award winning skate and BMX park.

Bring your boat or rent one from the marina around the corner and use our private dock for water fun. A canoe and paddleboat is included for our guests. Lake Minnetonka boasts 125 miles of shoreline with many interesting channels, bays, islands for exploring, and 12 boating restaurants throughout the 15,000 acre lake. You can kayak to Caribou Coffee through the Mound channel just across the bay. The new 25 mile Dakota bike trail, the best bass fishing on the lake, golf courses, miniature golf, driving ranges, shopping, antiquing, beaches, restaurants and movie theaters are minutes away.

The Cottage is close enough to the Twin Cities that you can also enjoy the amenities of metropolitan life in the same day with only 35 minutes to the Mall of America, airport, downtown theater life, shopping and city lakes. Or enjoy the shopping, coffee houses and fine dining in the celebrated lake towns around the area like Wayzata, Excelsior, Navarre, Long Lake, Tonka Bay and Mound.

Cottage Lake House

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
Absolutely perfect! Five stars indeed. This property exceeded our expectations for a Minnesota lakeside vacation rental. The house is so charming. We were spoiled with the newly renovated kitchen. The layout of the house is open and great for family /social gatherings. The furnishings are very nice. The bedrooms are spacious, and the beds are decadently comfortable. The property itself is enchanting with many garden areas, an eating terrace, and the most relaxing spot was the Adirondack chairs looking out onto the lake. The property is lined with trees that created a beautiful frame for our view of the lake, and made the property feel very secluded. The views and the sunsets were stunning. The best part for us was the property's private dock and canoe. We really enjoyed hanging out on the dock, and taking a morning paddle around the bay. The hot tub was an added bonus too! Karen is very kind and accommodating. We enjoyed meeting her when we arrived, and we are grateful that she made her beautiful vacation home available to us. It was a very memorable week, and we were sad to leave. Our week at the cottage is now part of our top 5 holidays! Thank you Karen

Making Memories on Lake Minnetonka

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012

Every summer our family returns to Minnesota from Canada looking for that special place to build family memories on Lake Minnetonka. We found that place on Cooks Bay. The quaint rental home is filled with personality, uniqueness and modern amenities. The lake access and view draw you into hours of fun and captivating sunsets. The property is magnificently cozy & quaint, exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Karin for sharing!

Best Value on the Lake!

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
We have rented for a couple of years on Lake Minnetonka and this property was the best one by far! I grew up in the Twin Cities but now live in Northern California but love to expose my kids to the fabulous summer lake culture of Minnesota. The cottage is in a great location - convenient to most of our destinations (We took in a Twins game and were able to get back to the cabin after the game in less than 30 minutes). The cottage has a warmth and charm that is hard to find on the lake - we felt right at home there as soon as we drove up. The house lives larger than it actually is due to the open kitchen and large front porch. One of the best parts of the property is the fire-pit and and chairs out in front of the house. This location sits high enough off the lake so that there always seems to be enough of a breeze to keep you cool and bugs away. We rented a tubing boat from On-Trailor Boat Rentals out of Delano (20 minutes away) so the kids had a great time tubing and skiing while the adults enjoyed touring historic Lake Minnetonka. The kids loved having the hot-tub on site! The owners were very easy to work with and responsive to our calls. In short, this cottage is a gem!!!

Wonderful location for lake activities

  • Submitted: Sep 7, 2012

I looked at several other places on Lake Minnetonka in a similar price range before ultimately choosing this one, and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. It's a great location for lake related activities. I brought my own sailboat along and docked it all week, but the owners provided a canoe and kayak. There are a variety of interesting channels and smaller lakes and inlets accessible by canoe or kayak nearby that were really fun to explore, and the location on the bay is perfect for launching a sailboat. The dock was also a nice place to take a dip and cool off on the hot days, and the hot tub was a wonderful attraction on the cooler days (there were both in the same week in mid September). In addition to being a great location for lake activities, it was also within about a mile's ride of one of the nicest new bicycle trails in the state (the Dakota Trail) which provides wonderful up-to-15-mile (one way) rides in both directions . . . and one one end can be connected to the Luce Line for much longer rides all the way to downtown Twin Cities or out into central Minnesota. The house itself is wonderfully decorated, with a very charming look throughout . . . but then the kitchen has significanty modernized/remodeled and is--quite frankly--nicer than the one in my own home. The lake facing windows on the main living room provide a wonderful view of the yard and the lake...but for a really outstanding view, the adirondack chairs out at the top of the landing provide spectacular sunset lakeviews in the evening. I entertained a couple of small groups during the week and everyone raved at how wonderful the place was. The owners were VERY easy to work with and--as an added bonus--I found my security deposit refund check in the mail practically the day after I arrived home. I would definitely rent this property again if it were available.
