"Up North Feel... in the Metro"

With a population of just 2,400... you'll definitely feel like you're in Northern Minnesota. Yet, you're just 12 miles from Minneapolis.

Some of my best memories include watching fireworks from 5 of the surrounding cities reflecting in the lake at Excelsior Bay!

You can boat up to several great restaurants or enjoy dinner on the docks overlooking the Lake Minnetonka. Take the kids swimming or charter a boat and enjoy the afternoon on the water.

What's not to love!?

"Historic Excelsior"

Excelsior is a wonderful town with a rich history. Walk downtown towards Lake Minnetonka and you can picture the old paddle wheel boats and grand hotels. Excelsior has kept much of the historic charm but infused new shops and dining spots creating a vibrant lakeside atmosphere you are sure to enjoy. This is a fabulous place to live with outstanding Minnetonka Schools.

  • Lake Minnetonka
