This cottage we call -The Beach Cabin- has history, but location is its' exceptional feature.

We would love to share our home with you!

The Beach Cabin is a completely separate house, not townhouse or condo, and can sleep ten or more. Two in King size sleep number loft bedroom, two in queen sleep number loft bedroom, two in queen sleep number first floor bedroom, two in two twin size beds in enclosed sleeping porch, and two in two single size 'klik-klak' microfiber sofas. We also supply air beds.

The unit has a full kitchen including four burner stove with large oven, full size refrigerator, and all needed pots, plans, plates, utensils, etc.

Full remodeled bath has custom tile and exhaust fan, etc.

The unit is arranged with two loft bedrooms up the stairs, enclosed bedroom with french doors on the main floor, large living and dining areas, and a sleeping porch.

Seating for 10 for dining inside or more outside on the giant 10 by 20 deck. Deck has a charcoal grill. Summer tent for enjoying the outside without insects.

The best feature of this property is of course the lake. Unlike some lake homes that do not have a sand beach, this 'beach house', which does not directly touch lakeshore, has access to a very lightly used very large public beach.

Right next to the beach is a Department of Natural Resources Fishing Pier. You don't need a boat to catch your limit! It's a great fishing spot, or for 'Sitting on the Dock of the Bay', as the popular song goes.

Of course, rental boats are nearby.

Without paying for lakeshore, you can enjoy all aspects of the lake as our family has for many years!

One very nice aspect of our property-- if you are the early riser, you can take your cup of coffee / fishing pole down to the beach and enjoy the sunrise... and if you are enjoying the end of the day, the sunset is visible from the same spot! Most of the time you have to choose one or the other at a lake place! :-( Here you have both! :-)

Built during the heyday of Lake Minnetonka, in the late 1800s, our beach house is in walking distance to the shops of a small town- Mound. We like the rustic charm and uneven century old wood floors. We hope you will too.

Locally, a long converted railroad line is a walk/hike/bike trail. (You can ride to the next county if you want!)

We supply some recreational equipment.

Multiple places to rent boats are very close, including speed boats, fishing boats, pontoon boats, and jet skis.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Scott and Jenna were incredible hosts and extremely accomodating! The house was in a great neighborhood on the lake shore with very close proximity to local paved bike trails (that will take you all the way into Minneapolis or out west) and the community. It was wonderful to sit on the dock every morning enjoying the sunrise and coffee! Scott and Jenna went out of their way to provide for my dog (a yellow lab) and I to make our stay wonderful and the fenced yard was perfect for my lab to enjoy her time outside. The house was furnished very comfortably with all the appliances & cookware anyone could ever want and a big screen TV (with DISH)! My family also came to visit with my three young nephews and nieces and they had a blast in the playroom/sunroom. There was plenty of room and beds for everyone to stay comfortably. My stay was absolutely wonderful and I would definitely recommend staying with Scott and Jenna!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and compliments! We enjoyed hosting you... truth in advertising, though~! We are one house from the lake, but have a dock and public beach within three minutes walk for swimming, and a Department of Natural Resources public dock for fishing, also! And it's actually cable tv, not a dish! (No reception problem when it rains! :-) ) We hope we can host you on your next trip to Minneapolis / Lake Minnetonka!

Lake Minnetonka is so close to Minneapolis you can see skyscrapers at Interstate 394 and 494! This urban lake is the 9th largest in Minnesota at 14,004 acres (5667 hectares) with about 125 miles (201 kilometers) of shoreline. It's large, and so are your activity choices. Of course everything in Minneapolis is easily accessible (28 miles away), but the Lake Minnetonka Lifestyle offers a lot! Lord Fletchers on Lake Minnetonka seats 300 outdoors at the wharf. Skateboard parks, Mini-Golf, the Beach and Fishing Pier can keep the kids busy. Everyone can appreciate being able to walk to the convenience store, coffee house, big grocery store, drug store, etc. There's always an art fair, farmers market, or festival going on someplace close! Contact us to learn more.

Of course swimming at the beach and fishing from the pier and dock are at the top of the list. Both are only a three minute walk!

Boat rental is right around the point of the bay. Fishing boats, Pontoons for the family, runabouts for water skiing, and jet skis are all available for rent. Pontoons can cost as little as $99 for a day rental.

There are many restaurants... with the grand-daddy Lord Fletchers of the Lake with docking for dozens of boats and seating for over 300 on the wharf!

The Lake Minnetonka and Minneapolis area have art festivals and other festivals just about every weekend.

Many local websites detail events. Or call your hosts, we have an email and our own website with recommendations.
