Prime Lake Minnetonka location with an “up north” feel!

Situated on nearly an acre of wooded privacy, with 150 feet of south-facing Lake Minnetonka frontage and a large yard. Private and quiet wooded lot makes you feel like you are “up north” while being near Minneapolis/suburbs. Every room in the house has a lake view.

The cabin sleeps 10-12 people and is conveniently located 30 minutes west of Minneapolis on Lake Minnetonka. It is located 8 miles from downtown Wayzata, 8 miles from downtown Excelsior, and 3 miles from Mound.

There is dock space for your boat during your stay. There is room in the driveway for a boat trailer.

All rooms – kitchen, bedrooms and living rooms - have a panoramic view of the lake. The house is surrounded by nearly 1-acre of land, which is wooded for privacy from neighbors.

The cabin was just updated – bathrooms are new and clean, the kitchen is very functional with new appliances, and new carpet runs throughout the cabin.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed. The large second bedroom has a queen size bed and a bunk bed with a twin on top and full on the bottom. The bunk house has a queen bed, twin bed and full bed.

Note: We can provide high chair and pack and play upon request.

The cabin has two living areas, both with TVs. The main living area has a DVD player and a stereo with in-ceiling speakers in the living room and outdoor speakers on the deck. The cabin has basic cable and wireless internet.

Wake up to a beautiful sunrise right outside your window. Enjoy swimming in the lake, which has a nice sandy bottom and a sand beach area. Relax on the two decks, both steps from the lake. Enjoy a campfire in the outdoor fire pit, or lawn games in the large yard. For the kids, great climbing tree right next to the lake, and woods for them to play in. All activities are made even more enjoyable with a panoramic view of Lake Minnetonka.

About Angela or Jason Alvig

We are life-long residents of the Lake Minnetonka area and live near the property. This is our summer cabin and we use it as much as we can.

Angela or Jason Alvig purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Angela or Jason Alvig chose Shorewood

We fell in love with this properly because it had amazing panoramic views of Lake Minnetonka, coupled with a unique wooded setting on a huge lot. It makes us feel like we are 'up north' while being only minutes from our home in the suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul. We remodeled the cabin to make it cozy and comfortable for our family and we thoroughly enjoy our time spent there in the summer. The minute we pull into the driveway we feel relaxed.

What makes this cabin unique

Panoramic Lake Minnetonka views/frontage

Large wooded lot with privacy

150 feet of lake front; sandy bottom and sand beach

Big driveway, plenty of off street parking

Kayak right out of the sandy beach

Close to Twin Cities metro

Lake Minnetonka - Quiet on the week days, and 'the place to be' on the weekends.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend. Jason and Angela made everything very easy. There was always something to do at the cabin (yard games, kayaks, swimming) and in the evening we could adventure out to a little night life around the lake.

We enjoyed it all! The home was comfortable with plenty of space for everyone. The bathrooms were adequate and appreciated the bonus of having a very accessible laundry room. With the kayaks, paddle boat, own beach and plenty of yard to play in, we couldn't have asked for more. Hosts are friendly and very accommodating!

We would highly recommend this property!

Sleeps 10 with comfort

  • 5 of 5

With two sitting rooms and two patios, our family members could have private time as needed during the week. The two kayaks were in use daily and the kids enjoyed the little beach. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked.

Perfect Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay! Jason and Angela provided a wonderful trip with everything you could need for a weekend on the lake. The house is in great condition and is in a perfect spot on the lake with amazing views. There is ton of outdoor activities to do whether its sitting around the fire pit, or taking a trip in the kayaks or paddle boats. Jason and Angela were always in reach if anything was needed though they made sure everything was all set before you arrived, including towels, sheets, basic cooking/ grilling necessities and more. The house is perfect for friends to gather and relax together. Couldn't have asked more a more perfect trip or a more perfect place to stay!
