BEAUTIFUL CAPE COD-STYLE HOME ON LAKE MINNETONKA, STEPS TO EXCELSIOR

Excelsior House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths With Beautiful Sunset Views On Lake Minnetonka (Sleeps 15)

This magnificently remodeled Cape Cod-style house is located on 70 feet of west-facing shoreline, providing beautiful sunset views across Lake Minnetonka's Gideon's Bay.

From the street side, a brick paver walkway guides you up to a covered front entry with glass doors leading you into the open foyer with it's clear views of the lake through a wall of windows in the great room.

A vaulted beam ceiling rises from the full-length windows that overlook the spacious lakeside deck. At one end of the great room is a generous formal dining dining space and access to the deck. At the opposite end is the big screen TV and gas fireplace.

The chef in the family will be able to appreciate the views from the great room as well, with an expansive pass-through window over the kitchen sink. The kitchen has polished granite counters, state of the art appliances and a fabulous center island that seats 6 comfortably.

Just upstairs from the kitchen is the 'family wing'. It offers 4 bedrooms, a large full bath and an enormous family room with large screen TV, large sectional and plenty of play room!

Just 2 steps down from the kitchen area is another large bedroom and full bath. It can be totally closed off and makes a wonderful guest suite, with lounge chairs and TV. Very private.

A striking open staircase in the foyer leads up to the private owners' suite. The bedroom features large windows overlooking the lake! Waking up has never felt better with those incredible views! The owners bath includes a jetted Moen tub and shower, two closets and plenty of windows with fabric blinds to maintain your privacy while allowing in natural light.

Just past the foyer area powder room are 2 steps leading down to the lakeside 'dressing room' and seperate laundry room. The dressing room is conveniently located by the door leading out to the deck and lake. There are lots of cabinets with life jackets, beach toys, towels and other storage.

Spanning the width of the home, the lakeside deck offers a gas grill, built-in benches, two dining tables with swivel rocker chairs to enjoy the beauty of the lake. Your trips to and from the dock, boat and lake could not be any easier with the smooth flat backyard. The house and decks are just a few yards away...

The dock is less than a year old. It has a 2 jet ski drive on lift, a boat lift with full coverage, a swim platform and bench and room for at least 2 more boats to park. There is plenty of room to swim, sunbathe and fish on the dock.

Along with the rip rap shoreline the beach has a sandy play area with 2 steps to go into the water. It is a hard sandy beach, wonderful for swimming. In front of our property there are green and red lane bouy's that boats must stay between. Therefore, there are no boats allowed to come near our dock making it extremely safe for swimming, protecting our boats and property from large wakes and generally a safer lake environment, with very little boat traffic. There is also a lakeside firepit for evening fires and roasting s'mores while listening to the sounds of the lake as it comes alive at night.

The beautiful, quaint town of Excelsior is just a 5 minute walk up the bike/walk path from our home. It offer's everything you can imagine. Wonderful boutiques, ice cream shops, coffee houses, sushi bar, Mexican restaurant, Irish pub, live music, art galleries, yoga studio, pet shop and way too many other things to mention!! All just a short stroll away!

Year around activities can be enjoyed, including boating, water-skiing, fishing, kayaking, swimming, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice-fishing, snow shoeing and skating. Just behind our home is the regional trail that winds along the lake and is enjoyed by bikers and walkers, in the summer and cross country-skiing in the winter.

Perfect Family Reunion on Lake MTKA

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion here in late fall and had a wonderful time. The layout of the house was perfect for a family gathering of ages between 4 to 70. The adults had a place to congregate (kitchen, livingroom) and the kids had their own living room area with TV and DVD player. Plenty of rooms, bathrooms, parking, and the views of the lake from the living room/kitchen/master bedroom are amazing. It's a short walk in to downtown Excelsior or the Commons beach area. The owner and property manager are very responsive to emails and easy to work with. I would love to rent this place again!!!

Birthday bash

  • 5 of 5
I planned a boat party weekend on Lake Minnetonka and invited friends and family. My family stayed here and friends were visiting often throughout the weekend. It was great for entertaining. If children were sleeping, we wouldn't disturb them. Plenty of room for sleeping and parking cars. A friend parked a boat at the dock and it was quiet with easy access to the big lake. The pictures of the property were very accurate, just what I expected or even better. And the owner and property manager couldn't have been more helpful and available for questions. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed for 5 days/5 nights with a group of old high school friends and we could not have enjoyed a better time at this beautiful lake home. The house is spacious and right on Gideon's Bay of Lake Minnetonka. There is plenty of space in the backyard to play volleyball, beanbag toss, throw frisbee, and enjoy a fire while gazing at the lake. Words cannot express how truly great our experience was on this stylish Excelsior property. I would highly recommend and plan on booking again in the future.
