About Scott Sorenson

I've lived on Lake Minnetonka for 35+ years and waited to buy and move to this location on the lake because it's close to downtown Wayzata. I worked downtown so I got to work in 11 minutes and came home to a small town lake environment. Have lived in Minnesota for 62 years and now live part time in Florida. real estate remodeling has been my business for 40 years and broker real estate in luxury areas like Wayzata and Florida. My wife is in Interior Design so we both have experience in luxury houses and working with people who can enjoy great houses in the Best locations.

Scott Sorenson purchased this house in 1997

Why Scott Sorenson chose Wayzata

Wayzata Bay is the best part of Lake Minnetonka and its close to Downtown Minneapolis, West Suburbs. Wayzata Bay is the best bay on lake Minnetonka with the only Spring water bay and enjoys less traffic on the water while still being close to downtown Wayzata by boat or car in 1 minute.

What makes this house unique

Brand New house best used for long weekends or months living right on Lake Minnetonka, enjoying the summer water, Fall colors and Winter Cross Country skiing and enjoying the city of downtown Wayzata for lunch/dinner/breakfast or something to do.

Perfect place for what I needed

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for two months while waiting for the closing on a house I bought. My stay was in the months of March and April and during that time the neighborhood was very quiet and I was able to spend time in the yard by the lake because no one else was staying in the big house. The apartment was very comfortable and clean. The location is fantastic - close to everything I needed and of course there is Lake Minnetonka right there. I have a dog and we found lots of places to walk in nearby neighborhoods and Minnetonka parks. The owner was very helpful whenever I needed to contact him.

Car: recommended

On Lake Minnetonka in City of Minnetonka and City of Wayzata you have all small city lake environment. Most restaurants on Lake Minnetonka are in Wayzata about 1 mile by car or 500 yards by water on boat. Wayzata bay is the only Spring Feed lake/bay on Lake Minnetonka so the water is clear/no weeds and deep. its a smaller bay so best for water skiing, fishing, and the real the best for sight seeing with all the great homes on this bay. Downtown Wayzata is also and added convenience for everything you need.

We are 1/2 mile to the best organic food stores and wine & food restaurants in the area. Best exercise club in Minneapolis is 500 yards from our house. Other shopping needs are also at this intersection.

Winter Cross country skiing is perfect right out our door on Lake Minnetonka. Summer Boating is also the best by putting your boat at our dock 80' from the house - giving you access to all of Lake Minnetonka. Fall sight seeing is fantastic from our dock, walking down our streets and for miles around lake Minnetonka right from our back door. Downtown Minneapolis is 11 minutes from our house to parking at the IDS Center in the center of downtown Minneapolis.
