Orono cottage description

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.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: 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....

                      Why the Owner 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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      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...
