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.

What makes this cottage unique

New gourmet kitchen in 2011.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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
