Lake Minnetonka

Certainly one of the most beautiful lakes Minnesota has to offer, Lake Minnetonka is located southwest of Minneapolis. At over 14,000 acres, the lake offers a spacious, relaxing departure from city life while remaining only fifteen minutes from the Twin Cities, making it an ideal location for many families looking to relocate. Lake Minnetonka is surrounded by some of the most beautiful lakefront resorts and cottages, and in the current buyer’s market, the time has never been better to invest in a new home. If you are looking to fulfill your dream of owning a beautiful lakefront home, I would be happy to set up an appointment to work with you.

There is never a lack of recreational opportunities with the lakes surrounding the Twin Cities, and Lake Minnetonka is no exception. Each year, Minnetonka is host to thousands of visitors who come to swim, take the boat out for a spin, or fish in some of the richest waters in the state. The lake is known for its game fish such as largemouth bass, but is also thick with walleye, yellow perch and sunfish, among others. For those who do enjoy sailing or angling, the lake provides multiple docks with easy access. Additionally, several private charter services are available to book a cruise for your family, which is a great way to both enjoy the amazing scenery of the area, as well as familiarize yourself with the different parts of the lake.

Lake Minnetonka is also host to one of the finest regional parks in the state. This 292 acre area offers plenty for both adults and children, making it a popular weekend spot for family gatherings. For those looking for some exercise, the park hosts three trails; one paved 2.5 mile trail for hikers and bikers, one mile-long path for pedestrians, and a mile long turf trail for pets. Kids will be drawn to the sprawling 20,000 square foot creative play area with a nautical theme, and which includes a cargo hold, climbing structures, and many slides—including two twenty-foot slide rides. Your kids will certainly enjoy their weekends at the park just as much as you.
If you are currently thinking about your options with purchasing a home, and are interested in acquiring some prime real estate, I would be happy to set up an appointment to introduce you to the area. Lake Minnetonka has some of the most stunning homes around its extensive 140 mile shore, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Many older homes along the lake have been recently restored, but there are also plenty of tear-down opportunities for those who are more interested in building their dream home from the ground up. Many multiple-acre locations are available with immediate access to the lake, so you have the opportunity to secure plenty of land to begin planning. Whatever your needs are, I would be happy to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Whether you are a seasoned owner of real estate, or you are considering buying your first home, you need someone you can trust to ensure you will get the best deal available at a price that appropriate for you.
