About the property

Completed remodeled in 2016, this modern Hawaiian style lakeside home has panoramic sunrise views of Lake Waconia and Coney Island. Located in a quiet neighborhood, it's just steps to your own private dock from the level lakeshore.. Fishing, boating, swimming and snowmobiling are at your doorstep. We provide kayaks and stand up paddleboards for leisurely lake enjoyment in the summer and skates, ice fishing equipment in the winter. Have your own boat or would like to rent one? No problem, you can tie up at the dock, run to the marina, or boat on over to Lola's on the Lake for a fabulous dinner.

With 130' of lakeshore, there is plenty of room to hang out and relax. Lake Waconia, at over 3,000 acres, is the second largest lake in the Minneapolis area, and features Coney Island, accessible only by boat. Coney Island is a 31 acre island that is in the process of being converted into a park. Explore the old ruins on the island, swing from the rope swing, or play at the sandy beach. With some of the best fishing MN has to offer you can jig for walleyes, top water bass, or see if you can find an elusive muskie.

The 2,000 SF retreat includes 3 bedrooms on the main level and 1 on the walkout level.

The vaulted master suite has a queen sized bed with it's floor to ceiling panoramic windows to take advantage of the sunrise every morning. Ensuite has an oversized soaking tub, double vanity sinks, and separate shower.

Bedroom number 2 has a full sized bed overlooking the lake. The third bedroom features a full sized bed as well. The additional bath on the main level features a walk in tiled shower.

The modern kitchen which overlooks the lake has a professional grade gas stove, all appliances and full complement of necessities. Whether you are grilling on the deck, or preparing a meal from the kitchen, it's easy to keep an eye on your family.

The main floor dining and living space are open and prominently feature the lake view. The copper barrel vaulted ceiling reflects the waves in different patterns all day long. If you need to warm up and relax, there is a gas fireplace and TV with Xbox and Netflix (no cable)

A walkout basement allows for convenient lake access. Living space has another gas fireplace and huge TV. It also has the 4th bedroom with 3 twin bunk beds.

On the outside, there is a large deck and grill, an outdoor living space overlooking the lake to hang out after a long day of fun, a relaxing hammock to fall asleep in, and the firepit next to the shore.

We are located a mile from the 20 mile long Dakota Rail Trail (a biking and hiking paved trail.) The town of Waconia (pop. 12,000) has unique shops, restaurants and activities. There is a marina located across the lake that has gas and bait, along with great recommendations on where the fish are biting.

This house was completely remodeled in 2016 and has every amenity. Main floor laundry room, mudroom, central air, parking for two vehicles.

About Tracy Dahlin

We are a family of 6 that can always be found in, on, or around the water. Love to travel and try new things.

Tracy Dahlin purchased this house in 2015

Why Tracy Dahlin chose Waconia

Our home is located on one of the best lots on Lake Waconia. I truly believe that people, especially kids, should have fun fishing, swimming and just hanging out enjoying nature as often as possible. Everyone should get a little sunburnt, a little dirty, and smell like wood smoke at the end of a perfect day.

What makes this house unique

Level lakeshore, shallow water, casual areas all over to just hang out.

Fishing was fun and we caught a lot right off the dock. Loved the view, the house and the yard.

Beautiful, peaceful Lakehouse

  • 4 of 5

It was a very nice gathering spot for our family to celebrate together. Fishing, cooking, playing games and having a wonderful lake view. The fire pit was used every night for us late nighters to chat, tell jokes and watch the flames before a quiet sleep.

A nice place for our family weekend!!

  • 4 of 5

Some things I would say about it. I wish they would say more things that are included like chairs for the fire. The gas tank on the grill ran out of gas.. it would be nice if they had it full. Trash cans should be empty before we started our stay. Overall it was a good experience!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your time at the Lake House! Because this is our main home, you can expect all the necessary day to day things like chairs, towels, condiments, bug spray, etc. All you need is a bathing suit, food and a couple of beverages. Sorry about the propane gas running out on the grill--I didn't realize it was getting low.

Excellent Lake Views!!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was exceptional during my stay. I had coffee in the morning on the deck watching the sunrise over the lake. I had a great time working/creating my meals in the gorgeous kitchen with the professional grade stove and oven.

I've already recommended my friends and families to check it out!
