Orono Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Lakeside Cottage on the Crystal Bay of Lake Minnetonka

A small community located within the Orono city limits to the north. This city is on Smith's Bay and is home to the Minnetonka Center for the Arts as well as French Lake. The city is small and secluded with lots of natural features, with most of its amenities coming from Orono and Wayzata, such as their parks and shopping.

Please Note: The property is not a good choice if your group likes to party into the evening, since there are neighbors directly on both sides of the property.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty

I am a realtor with Counselor Realty in the Lake Minnetonka area. 17601 Hwy 7, suite 100, Minnetonka MN 55345. Office phone 952.473.9500

I enjoy sharing the lake Minnetonka experience with others....

Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty chose Orono

I have lived on Lake Minnetonka for 28 years, first in Tonka Bay, and then nine years at the cottage, first as a renter, and then owner since 2008.

I have so many amazing memories and special times with family and friends over the years.

It has a special quality of being such a calm and relaxing environment, being close to the water, and level with the water.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage is charming in its own cute way, it's small open floor plan allows you to see the lake from almost every room. Because of the short distance to the waters edge, it feels like you are always engaging the lake.

The evenings are wonderful sitting by the waters edge with a small bonfire, or from the hot tub watching the sparkle on the water from a big full moon.

The morning sunrise is spectacular from the end of the dock with a cup of coffee.

The Cottage has serenity, and good energy...

Not what is advertised!

  • 1 of 5
We stayed here 4 nights and not quite what we expected. There is only a full size bed in the bedroom and a youth bed in the alcove area, not a twin bed. The A/C wall unit in the bedroom dripped into a bucket, very annoying. When it rained the ceiling leaked in the dining room where you could see black stains on the sheet rock, perhaps mold. Also, parking is very limited. You could only put a very small compact car in the garage since the garage door is undersized. The lot location is very nice but a very uncomfortable house to stay in.

Owner's Response: There are three beds at the cottage, a full size bed in a private bedroom, a full size sofa sleeper in the porch overlooking the lake, and a expandable twin bed to accommodate a youth or an adult. Unless requested to the full length, the bed is kept at the shorter length for a youth, just to save space in the room.

Sometime in August I was told by a Guest that the third A/C in
the bedroom began to drip some water, hence the container. We were not able to change out the new air conditioner due to back to back bookings that were already scheduled for August, the new air conditioner is being installed now that we are able to do maintenance at the property without disrupting guests.

I was not aware that there was an recent issue with a ceiling leak. Roof work had been done to remedy a ceiling leak in 2013. Spring 2014 was a very rainy, and no issues all of this summer. This will be resolved!

Regarding the garage, yes, it is a tandem garage as stated on the description on the VRBO website. The garage can accommodate two regular size cars however not trucks or SUV'S due to the height of the garage.

Cottage was small but nice. Great access to the water. Lots of spiderwebs everywhere that could have been easily taken care of. Owner was very responsive when we contacted her for a couple of things.

Nice place if you dont mind rain

  • 2 of 5
This is a lovely place but the roof is shot. The last night we stayed here we had rain pouring in and water all over. The owner is very nice but I thought we should have gotten either a refund or a free stay another time since we got zero sleep and some of our things got wet. The location is lovely and so is her decorating but price is too high for this small place with maintenance issues.

Owner's Response: One of the first guests we had stay at the cottage experienced a very strong rain storm with 3" - 5" of rain in a very short period of time, and rain did come into the porch area of the cottage.
The roof was repaired immediately, we just experienced another heavy rain storm this past week, and there was not a drop of rain in the porch.

The weather this late summer has been wonderful, with a nice breeze off the lake, and no need for air conditioning.

Sometimes it can be very tranquil to enjoy the sound of a heavy rain, and watch it on the water.

Charming little cottage

  • 4 of 5
Lovely little rustic cottage in a great location on Lake Minnetonka. Close to restaurants and grocery store. FYI - the second bed is a small iron child's bed, very charming but not long enough for a teenager or older child. It definitely won't fit two small children. Otherwise, very sweet little property with a wonderful and relaxing view of the lake.

Owner's Response: The cottage is perfect for a romantic get-away, and also for a small family.

The Iron bed frame accommodates both small children to an adult with it's expandable frame, and bedding, provided either way, upon request.

The full size sleeper, is perfect for sofa use during the day, and for additional sleeping area for a couple, a single or for children.
