Pub room, screen porch, large deck, fire pit, dock, and large grassy yard. Three bedrooms up in the charming 100 year old house. Master hosts a king bed, second has a queen, and third bedroom has three twins. Additional sleeping areas in lower level. Bathrooms newly remodeled and one on each of the three levels. This property is ideal, right on the Dakota Regional Trail. You can walk or bike six miles west into St. Bonifacious or eight miles east into Wayzata.

There is mini golf two miles down the trail. Big Stone Mini golf combines the family fun of mini golf with a one-of-a-kind sculpture garden.

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is a 15 minute drive to Chanhassen. A regional gem!

You can walk to the 50's style Minnetonka Drive Inn where every Thursday night is Hot Rod night. Hot Rods from all over Minnesota show up to showcase their cars. Also serves a mean burger and some cool treats.

You can boat to either Fletcher's on the Wharf where bands are playing the latest and greatest. Watch the marina for a parade of boats - skiffs to yachts!

                  Lake Minnetonka is located 20 minutes west of Minneapolis. It is a 14,528 acre lake with bays, coves and channels.

                  Watch boat traffic from the spacious deck, moor your boat in the wide slip and walk on the Dakota Regional Trail. We are steps from this wonderful paved trail. Six miles west into St. Bonifacious or eight miles east into Wayzata. Enjoy shopping, restaurants and view in Wayzata or Excelsior.

                  We are located one mile by boat to one of Lake Minnetonka's premier restaurant, Fletcher's. You are also a very fun 20 minute boat ride into downtown Excelsior where you can use the public slips and enjoy the many shops, restaurants and parks.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We purchased this property in August of 2009 as our 'cabin without the commute.' We live just 20 minutes away in Victoria, MN. We have enjoyed it thoroughly but our don't utilize every week.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mound:
                  We were taking a family bike ride on the trail between Victoria and Excelsior on Father's Day 2009. I marveled at all the really great properties that you would never see from the main roads. It sparked the idea of owning something close - our cabin without the commute - idea was born!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This was the only house we looked at. We walked in on a sunny June day on the first day it was on the market. We could not write the check fast enough! It is charming, quaint and practical. The kitchen was updated, the bedrooms were spacious. The entertaining space was bright and cheerful. The screen porch and deck are east facing and get great shade in the afternoon.
