Manager info

About: 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.

Why Excelsior:
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.
