Excelsior is charming and has the feel of a small city rather than a suburb. Some of our favorite pass times are sailing, boating, biking, walking, antiquing and playing with our 2 dogs in the huge park across the street.

We love the quiet small town feel but Excelsior also becomes busy and fun for family and friends during the summer. The 4th of July is a big event here and this home is right in the heart of it. After completely renovating the house, we decided to rent it out to families looking for a lake retreat, just 25 minutes away from downtown Minneapolis.

A slice of heaven!

If you are looking for a classic, cozy cottage to escape to, this one is for you! Last weekend three girlfriends and myself spent two nights at this cottage in Excelsior an it had everything we were looking for and more. Inside, the decor is a *wow* everywhere you look. It is clean, light and bright yet very comfortable. Outside, we were only steps away from shops, restaurants, coffee shop and a wonderful spa.
The view from the cottage was beautiful even now, despite the ice and snow that are lingering far beyond their welcome. I imagine once summer comes, the view will be all the more stunning! Thank you, Kay, for sharing this absolue gem with us!

This is a beautiful place to rest and relax. The interior design provides everything needed for recharging yourself. The furnishings are lovely! The staircase is totally unique. The kitchen seems newly remodeled and if fully equipped. We enjoyed the park and the waterfront across the street. We watched the boats as we walked along the shore. Good roads connect to shopping and entertainment in Minneapolis.

This is a very comfortable property and generously stocked. The description and photos are accurate and it was sheer delight to stay here! It is a cute town and easy walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The park (with swimming beach) is just across the street. Looking forward to our next visit.

Beautiful rental home!

We found the property just as described and pictured, recently renovated! Kitchen was remarkable with upgraded appliances. PET FRIENDLY!! The home is FULLY stocked with linens, towels, soaps and kitchen items. The property manager Sarah was quite helpful and accessible via phone, text, email. This home offered us the opportunity to be as close the lake as we could afford. Rates were very reasonable. We enjoyed walking the park/beach area right across the street, and all the nearby restaurants. Highly recommend Yumi's Sushi - excellent! Also rented a pontoon boat for a day from Rockvan(sp?) marina/mid-week special was very affordable. I would definitely recommend this property to one couple or couple with 1 child. Only 1 queen bed, with an additional trundle bed in loft. We wanted to re-rent it for later this summer, but is booked through Aug. of 2013. Only concern was: the only AC is upstairs, and it took us a day to figure out how to keep the main floor cool through use of the AC and ceiling fans, and bought two additional floor fans at Target: but usually not that hot on the lake.
