Closest bay to Minneapolis!!

***************************************************

* All NEW construction, built for Family Vacations!

***************************************************

Only NEW house available for summer rental on Lake Minnetonka!!

This house was designed and built from the ground up for family vacations (and is wheelchair friendly).

One-level living!! All on main floor (very rare on Lake Mtka) with NO STEPS:

- Roll from street to driveway to main floor with NO STEPS !!

- high-speed WiFi (plenty fast for Netflix, Pandora, etc)

- Kitchen: fully stocked - with lake view

- table seating for 6 on outdoor deck plus 8 indoor plus 3 more at island breakfast bar

- Great room / family room

- 60 inch TV in great room with DISH, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, all Premiums, Netflix, Amazon

- giant 20 foot wide door opens to deck - no posts, no glass when open!

- giant 50 foot wide deck overlooking Lake Minnetonka

- Master bedroom suite with lakeview

- Master bedroom walk-in closet with safe

- private Master Bath with Jacuzzi bathtub with window to lake

- separate large Master shower with two opposite sprayers and shower window to lake

- 55 inch TV in MBR with DISH, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon, all Premium channels

- 2nd bedroom (two twins)

- guest bathroom with shower

- LAUNDRY - with full-size front-loaders

- 2-car garage

All of the above features are on the MAIN FLOOR!

LONG side of house is built along shoreline, so most rooms in house have a lake view. This is VERY rare on Lake Minnetonka, as most homes were built with the SHORT side of the house along the shoreline, providing only one lakeview room per floor.

Walkout lower level has:

- huge game-room with lake view

- queen bedroom with lake view

- with 42 inch TV with DISH, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon, all Premium channels

- bunk bedroom with full and twin mattress

- 1 bathroom with shower/bathtub

- many large windows

- French double doors to lake & dock area

Is it REALLY the BEST rent-able home on Lake Minnetonka? Dont take OUR word for it - of COURSE we think so. Look at all 30+ VRBO calendars for Lk Mtka rentals. This house filled summer 2015 the FASTEST of ALL Lake Mtka homes listed on VRBO!!

It is the nicest rentable house on the entire lake - probably in the state!

It is located in the best location of any rent-able Lake Mtka house - very close to 494 and 394 and Mpls

It is the best VALUE on the lake - it is priced lower than most 4+ BR homes to encourage 30 day rentals - which is MUCH easier on the neighborhood.

***************************************************

This is the nicest most luxurious home available for short-stay summer rental on east half (close to Minneapolis and I-394 and I-494 - where people want to stay) of Lake Minnetonka!!

Closest Lake Minnetonka rental home to Minneapolis on the entire lake! (Most of the home rentals on the lake are 20-30 minutes further away from Mpls by car).

Why spend 8 hours driving up & back to the Brainerd Lakes area when you can stay in town!

House is ON LAKE MINNETONKA.

No roads, no marsh, nothing between house and lake except the backyard lawn.

You can rent this house in the summer, and STILL take the kids and grand-kids to soccer practice because it is IN TOWN!!

***************************************************

* Amazing features:

***************************************************

LARGE great room 25 x 30 ft with a 20 foot wide patio door that opens to the lake view completely.

A giant glass bi-fold door brings the outside in!

Wood tiles in great room leads out to gorgeous giant deck with same wood tiles.

Internet and large thin TVs with satellite channels

Bedrooms:

MBR: main floor King bed: awake to lake views through large Andersen triple-wide french swing door. Private master bath suite accessible only from MBR with Jacuzzi tub which gives lake view through large window.

Mbath shower with TWO sprayers and a window to the lake IN THE SHOWER!

Boat launch is 300 yards away, so easy to launch your boat, drive boat to your private dock, and walk back to get your car.

Close to many great restaurants accessible by boat and by car.

Only 2 miles to I-494 loop provides access to the best that the Minneapolis area has to offer.

***************************************************

* Wheelchair friendly !!

***************************************************

Designed to provide EASY driveway access for people in WHEELCHAIRS! There are NO STEPS leading into the house from the street or driveway!! (this is one of the few homes in MN without any steps leading to the front door)

Entire main floor is accessible to wheelchair guests (except showers & tub)!

Entire lower level is steps free (except shower & tub) (Walkout provides step-free access)

(DISCLAIMER: Management makes NO CLAIM to be ADA compliant in any way)

**************************************************

* Buy or rent???

**************************************************

At first glance, Lake Minnetonka homes appear expensive to rent. However comparing renting to purchasing:

Cost of 4 br home on east half of Lake Mtka:

$1,500,000

monthly mortgage payments at 4.2% fixed 30 year loan:

financing P & I: $7300 per month

property taxes: 2000 per month

utilities: 500 per month

repairs & maint: 1000 per month

-------------------

total: $10,800 per month = $129,000/year

Divide that by 3 (the 4 summer months that people want to vacation here) and the total cost of ownership = $43,000 per summer month.

So renting this house for a summer month costs LESS THAN HALF of owning a similar house!!!

About j s

In our mid-fifties and sharing our dream home!

j s purchased this house in 2012

Why j s chose Wayzata

My wife and I have always dreamed of a place on Lake Minnetonka. In 2012 we purchased this amazing property and filled up 26 giant dumpsters during the demo and rebuild.

We are looking forward to vacationing here with our kids and grandkids in the years ahead.

We also want to share it with others - so many can enjoy this resort-like setting in Minnesota.

What makes this house unique

This house and location are amazing. Most of us cant afford to live in a resort setting year-round. But now your family (and mine too) can enjoy it for a time. Everyone who has stayed here has enjoyed it and wants to return next year. It is tough to get weeks here as the summers are not very long. I am very conscientous of offering first dibs for next year to the families that stayed with us this year.

SUPERB home in perfect Location, Location, Location

  • 5 of 5
From the first contact with the owners to the moment we landed at home in Dallas, everything was first class.

Walking in the front door, we could tell that this house was going to be a treat. My wife and I looked out towards the lake. Wait - there IS no back side of the house - its gone!! The giant door folds away and its like being in the Caribbean - the outside lakeview comes right into the living area.

The kitchen and great room wood-tile floor keep right on going out to the expansive deck. This house took alot of design and build expertise. It is not like any other we have seen in the northern climates.

The kitchen was fully stocked and with such high-end appliances. And all so new!

Our kids immediately noticed the giant model train running around ceiling in the lower level. That is a fun amenity for all ages.

Our family kept busy for the entire stay - there were so many things to do at the home including the double kayak, stand-up paddleboards, fishing poles, pinball, shuffleboard, slot machine, jukebox, ping-pong, PS4 Playstation, and more. And then there were all the city activities too!

We rented a pontoon boat to keep at the dock and the launch is less than a block away so it was easy to walk there.

Overall we had a great time in this fabulous home and are looking forward to returning!

Very high quality Lake Minnetonka home, excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of an extended stay at this lovely home over the winter while our townhouse was being built - Joel and Marcia have truly thought of everything, and if they haven't, let them know and they'll most likely add it! They are very attentive, responsive, and trustworthy. I've stayed in many rentals via VRBO, and this is by far the best.

It has a well appointed master suite with great views and french doors to the deck, a large double shower and separate bathtub, top notch bedding and towels throughout, well equipped laundry, beautiful guest bathrooms (one up and one down); a wonderful kitchen that has all the appliances, dishes, and utensils; and best of all the floor to ceiling (and it's a very high ceiling, with several skylights!) windows looking out on Gray's Bay, with wall-to-wall doors that open completely up to the expansive deck - amazing! They have very nice TVs that are equipped with Dish Network, and WiFi works well throughout the house. The lower level has many fun toys (ping pong, shuffle board, pinball, jukebox, toy train, slot machine...) and is pleasant with lots of windows; you can walk right out to the back yard and the fire pit down by the dock.

It's in a quiet neighborhood, and has easy access to shops, restaurants (Spasso is great - nice but not too expensive/fancy; they have a car service if you want to be picked up/dropped off, and they own the wine shop next door with great prices - they'll even let you buy a bottle in the shop and bring it into the restaurant - and Snuffy's Malt Shop next door is great for burgers & malts). You're a short distance to the Wayzata lakefront shops and restaurants if you go north on 101, and if you go south on 101 it's 8 minutes to the super Target and much more. Access east to 494 or north to Hwy 12 is ~10 minutes, with easy on/easy off.

Any time of year, this is a great place to stay, and should appeal to couples up to large families - you can't go wrong!

Amazing home on Lake Minnetonka for our family!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing property on Lake Minnetonka!! We had our immediate family at the house all week and rented two jet-skis from Bay Rentals - what a blast!! Grand-parents and grand-kids visited off and on - so conveniently located near 494 for quick access after work or to see the attractions in the Minneapolis area!

The giant door is stunning - we have traveled all over but have never seen anything like this. The ENTIRE WALL opens up to the lake. The 20 foot window-wall is literally GONE. When the wall is open it looks and feels like a resort in the Caribbean!

Almost ALL of the rooms have lake views!

And the deck is where we spent a lot of family time. Tile floor looks like wood - its like walking on an indoor smooth floor. And with a glass railing the views of the lake are gorgeous!

We looked at many of the rental homes available before choosing this home; here is what this house DOESN'T have compared to others: No old wiring - no old plumbing - no old appliances. NO STEPS into house - this is an amazing feature. No steps meant my relative in a wheelchair could visit effortlessly. Our luggage rolled in so easily. And this house has no steps to the lake! And NO NOISE! No highways or busy roads near the house. And NO ROAD to cross to the lake or dock! And no noise from the lake - its a QUIET BAY by the house.

The fishing is fantastic - right off the dock!! We knew because of the decked-out high-end fishing boats with guides that seemed to troll by our dock.

The lower level sports games kept the kids occupied after a day on the lake. Ping-pong, pinball, shuffleboard table. And the slot machine was the best - the key is provided to retrieve the money back! (Can't do that at Mystic Lake Casino!!)

The kitchen is amazing. Now I know why people pay the big bucks for Wolf, Sub-Zero, Icon and Weber brands. We all took turns being pro chefs!

Everything is included at this house!

Loved the bed lamp switch buttons on the night-stands. Touch them and the lamp turns on! No fumbling for the tiny switches deep inside the lampshade.

Overall we had an amazing week - lots of family memories were made here!

Our only suggestion: Change the name to "The Ritz at Lake Minnetonka".

Owner's Response: Thanks K & B - so glad you enjoyed your stay at Lake Minnetonka!

We are happy to hear that you noticed and appreciated many of the homes features.

We agree - the giant door is amazing - it took a whole year to design, plan, order, manufacture, and install the 20 foot wide door. In fact the entire house was pretty much built around that door system! It is supported from a massive beam ABOVE the 1200 pound door - the door is actually hanging from above!

In 2014 look for even more features at the house - we are adding a Wurlitzer "Bubbler" CD jukebox in the game room, a large-scale model train, and even an outdoor shower to the house!

Excellent lake home

  • 5 of 5
What a great home, great location. Loved the openness of the kitchen/family room and flow to the deck overlooking the beautiful lake. We also enjoyed the neighborhood, nearby parks, bike trails and walks. We also enjoyed the stand-up paddle board and 2 person kayak, the game room in the basement. What didn't we like? Nothing!

The tandem kayak and stand-up paddleboard were a big hit this season and the September weather was perfect to enjoy them.We designed and decorated the house for a vacationing family retreat from the ground up and we are happy to hear that it worked so well for your family!

Wonderful family lake vacation house

  • 5 of 5
Our family with 3 adult children, spouses, and grandchild spent a wonderful summer week on Grays Bay. Many good memories were made.
The house was spotless, as everything is brand new. It is well furnished with high end range/oven/grill and other appliances. The great room is a large comfortable space for hanging out together and it opens up to a large lake front deck, where we enjoyed our evening meals. The ping-pong table and pinball machine on the lower level provided many hours of entertainment.
The quiet residential neighborhood location was a pleasant surprise. Grays Bay is wind-protected for quality waterskiing during the weekdays, and no-wake weekend rules made it relaxing and quiet for swimming, floating and sunsets. Being on the east end of Lake Minnetonka very near 101 made it convenient for family members who work in Minneapolis to blend work and vacation time. The close-by public boat ramp made it simple to launch our boat.
The owners are local and were very responsive when we had questions. We highly recommend this rental property.

Owner's Response: Thanks J & J. We are glad to hear that your family enjoyed their stay on Lake Minnetonka and that is exactly what we hoped for. Its nice to know that all the little things we added to the house didn't go unnoticed!

When we think about Lake Minnetonka, it is quite unique; how many US cities have a large usable recreational lake in their metro area?

We feel fortunate to have this in Minnesota and we are happy to share it with your family!
