About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Cozy Lakeside Cottage on Crystal Bay, Lake Minnetonka

A small community located within the Orono city limits to the north. Orono 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, hiking trails, shopping, and restaurants.

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.

About Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty

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....

Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Kat Kitt, Realtor/Counselor Realty chose Lake Minnetonka

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kat- your cozy cottage took us back to our life as newlyweds in Tonka Bay.

We enjoyed our time here and hope to return in the future.

Comfortable for 2 adults. An okay place if you're not to worried about frills. Interior is nice but small if you're a taller adult Needs lots of repairs and dock is dangerous with a slat missing especially if you had a child. Wall with sharp screws facing out is an issue also with children Overall we felt it was a relaxing trip but felt it is overpriced.

Clean, but in need of some repair

  • 3 of 5

It has it's charm and is clean and well decorated. Bed is comfortable. But, there are obvious areas that should be repaired. The dock has pieces of boards missing. The side of the home is badly in need of paint. There is a vertical row of about eight screws (the sharp ends) protruding out of a wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. Frankly, with a toddler running around, we were none too happy about these sharp points sticking out of the wall.

Owner's Response: Yes, the Cottage is older, a 1920's vintage, we have had the exterior professionally painted several times over the past 10 years and just cant keep it from peeling off? I was not aware of sharp screw tips but easy enough to remedy by snipping them off, no problem! We appreciate our guests comments, it helps to have fresh eyes and a different perspective to help us keep the Cottage maintenance in check.

Very Nice, Cozy and Charming!

  • 4 of 5

Great, cozy home. Myself and my sisters spent a weekend here in early Spring. The dock wasn't out yet, but that was fine, we spent time relaxing in the hot tub; so beautiful at sunset, such a pretty setting. The sofa has to be the most comfortable sofa that exists. Two of my sisters opted to sleep there as opposed to an actual bed because it is huge and ridiculously comfortable. The place is very well decorated and has a great feel. Very charming. Overall a very nice weekend: We had a fire, played games, cooked and even did some crafts. Couldn’t be more pleased! Also, I left some clothing in a drawer, and the renter was kind enough to locate and send them to me. I will definitely be back!

What an amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. It was our home away from home. My wife squealed when we walked in. The contact by the owner and her care for the place was evident. We had a great stay. I will defiantly come back!

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at the cottage and want to come again. The view and access to the lake was awesome, we were very comfortable. The cottage garage is better suited to a compact car, we had some parking challenges with our SUV. The cottage itself is darling!
