About Kay Musech

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 Kay Musech chose 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. A

                                                            Hope to come back again and again.

                                                            Really enjoyed the cottage. Clean and welcoming, easy walk to Excelsior, and all the amenities we were looking for. Good communication with owner was an added bonus. Hope to stay there again next year.

                                                            Very cute, well appointed, wonderful location!

                                                            We had a wonderful visit. The home was clean and we had everything we needed. We did wish there was a space out front to sit in the mornings and enjoy the view of the lake! It was a great location with the park across the street!!

The owners were very responsive and detailed oriented. We had such an amazing time here that I would defiantly try to find my way back in the future. Thank you so much!!!
