This home is only 7 miles to Hazeltine National Golf Club - home of the 2016 Ryder Cup!!! Stay on beautiful Lake Minnetonka for this event!. This newly renovated 4 bedroom, 4 bath light and bright two story home is the perfect summer lake home. It is located on a incredible south-facing lot within a 10 minute enjoyable walk along the Lake Minnetonka LRT Trail to the historic town of Excelsior. Swim and boat from the dock in the 'A' quality water rating. Enjoy southerly breezes on the warm days and relative calm on the blustery cool north-westerly wind days.
This two story home has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths on the upper level. The master bedroom faces the lake and has a king size Sleep Number bed. His and her closets. The master bath is new and has a tile shower, slate floors, and windows that overlook Lake Minnetonka and add plenty of light and fresh air.
The 2nd bedroom also overlooks Lake Minnetonka and has a double bed. The 3rd bedroom faces west and has a lake view with a single bed. A full-bath to accommodate guests in bedroom #2 and #3 is also on the 2nd level.
The 4th bedroom/great room is huge – 20’X20’. It is a light a bright room due to its many windows: south facing to view the lake, west facing to capture the afternoon sun, and north to add additional light
The main level has an open floor plan with views of the lake throughout. The Kitchen has stainless appliances, a slate floor, and granite counters which include a island bar for entertaining or informal eating area. The dining area is next to the sliding glass doors leading out to the deck (which is only 35 feet from the water!). The living area/ sun room has a L-shaped couch and overlooks the lake both to the south and to the west. A new powder room provides main floor convenience.
The lower level is finished and has a full bathroom, laundry, and a family room area with TV and office. This room has a large closet and can be set up as a 4th bedroom if desired. Egress windows face west which add plenty of sunshine into this area during the afternoon.
The house is very close to the water and you don't have to think about whether it is worth the effort to walk out to the dock with your cup of coffee in the morning - or whether to go back in the house to get the magazine you forgot.
The best part of the house is the location. It is an easy walk to downtown Excelsior and to its many restaurants, bars, ice cream vendors, even a movie theater. So why drive? Or if you prefer a vehicle, bring your bike because the Lake Minnetonka LRT trail (LRT) is a block away. (There are some bikes at the property for your use.) If you like biking, the Lake Minnetonka LRT extends westerly to Victoria and easterly to Hopkins. Both are about 45 – 60 minute bike rides.
The historic city of Excelsior boasts many entertainment options, all within walking distance. These include many restaurants in all price points: Bayside Grille & Maynard’s – both quick walks, Coalition, Victor’s on the Water, Haskell’s (bar & grille & liquor store), Jake O'Connor’s Irish Pub, McDonalds, Yumi’s Sushi, Lagos Tacos & Grille, Cast & Cru -very close at the Old Log Theater, The 318, The Suburban Gourmet Burgers and Pizza, Excelsior Brewing Company and others), a 4 screen movie theater, Dunn Brothers Coffee, Licks ice cream parlor, Adele’s frozen custard, many quaint shops, and many services including Yoga fit and Anytime Fitness. Kowalski’s grocery store is opening soon in a new shopping center under construction, and Cub foods, Lunds, Byerly’s, and Target are all within a 10 minute drive.
Lake Minnetonka is one of the State of Minnesota's outstanding lakes - a chain lake with many bays, waterfront restaurants, and towns. Boat to the many restaurants in the City of Wayzata to the north, to Lord Fletcher’s or Ala and Alma’s steakhouse to the west, or to one of the many Islands including Big Island, Goose Island, or Boy Scout Island. Or just boat all day and enjoy the scenery!
Due to City of Greenwood regulations, this home is available for 30 day rentals only.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I have lived on Lake Minnetonka since 1997. I have been a VRBO owner since 2009 and rent my Lake Superior cabin VRBO #228011 to over 50 happy renters every year.
Why the Owner Chose Excelsior, MN, USA:
I purchased this property because of its fantastic location. It's south-facing on St. Alban's Bay, and has sun pretty much all day on the dock. The Lake Minnetonka LRT trail is a block away and provides a off-road path for walking or biking into Excelsior. The water is St. Alban's Bay is rated "A" and the bay is perfect for water sports include kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, tubing, and swimming.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have completed renovated and expanded the home. It's the perfect Minnesota summer place - so nice to sit on the deck or the dock and enjoy the views, walk around the yard, or up the street to the trail or take walks, walk to dinner, the movie theater, or to the many quaint shops in the destination city of Excelsior.
