Impressively Quaint, Wayzata MN
So, you are thinking about calling desirable Wayzata (pronounced Why-ze-ta) your new home? Lucky YOU! Situated just 15 to 20 minutes from Minneapolis, Wayzata (population about 4100) is a place you will love to call home.
We welcome you to this impressively quaint little town located on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. Lake Minnetonka was named by the Dakota Indians, it means “Big Waters”, and known as one of the largest lakes in the state. Yes, boating (speed or sailing as well as fishing (yes, we have ice houses on the lake in the winter), and swimming at Wayzata Beach are just a few of the activities on the Lake. Want some really crazy fun? Join us for the Chilly open held in February, or James J. Hill Day festival in September, or the “Enchanted Wayzata” holiday winter shopping extravaganza. Once a summer resort for the many visitors by train from Minneapolis, it is now a year round resort!
Create unforgettable moments in this caring and friendly community. Clean air and expansive views of the lake, art, culture, sports, and great restaurants abound. The queen of the lake offers nearby challenging golf courses including Baker National Golf Course, private country clubs such as Wayzata Country Club and Woodhill Country Club, upscale specialty shops (Talbot’s, Acorn, LeBlanc, The Little Cone, The Five Swans’ to name just a few), and extraordinary cuisine (Gianni’s, The Blue Point, D’Amico’s, Sunset’s, The French Bakery). In addition, Wayzata is home to a very fine school system and several private schools as well as a very steady business community.
Don’t miss the historic Wayzata Depot for a little history or catch the historic rescued-from-the-bottom-of-the-lake-and restored, Minnehaha Ferry boat during the summer for an excursion on the Lake! Enjoy strolling Lake Street and stopping at one of the two coffee shops for a cup as you gaze at the lake, admire the lovely city gardens or do a little window shopping!
Whether looking for a single family home, town home or condo, you will be delighted with this little piece of heaven! Heaven can wait, can you?
