Enjoy the charm of historic Excelsior. The Guest House is the perfect rental for larger groups with room for up to 17 guests. Our home is steps away from fine dining, shopping and beautiful Lake Minnetonka! We are located along a bike trail that travels east to Minneapolis or West through beautiful regional parks. You will be sure to leave your stay with us relaxed and refreshed!

The home is just two blocks from scenic Lake Minnetonka in the lakeside village of Excelsior, MN. Just twenty minutes from the Minneapolis. The home overlooks downtown Excelsior’s popular Water Street, selected as one of the sixteen “best main streets in America” by Parade Magazine. Excelsior Bay is the perfect point of departure for a fun getaway weekend, special occasion, romantic escape or a refreshing change of pace for the business traveler.
