"Eclectic and Wonderful:)"

This great neighborhood can be found between the South shores of Lake Calhoun and the West side of Lake Harriet in SW Minneapolis. Often referred to as "a small town in the City" Linden Hills represents ecletic urban living.

The business districts offer a variety of shopping and dining you can't find any where else. Folks love to browse the locally-owned stores that remind you of the past.
Pros
  • Mpls City Trolley
  • 50 Miles of Public Paths
  • Shopping at 43rd & Upton

"Charming Neighborhood"

In between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet Linden Hills is home to a few of our all time favorite restaurants and local shops. The streets are tree lined and the houses are amazing. You will want to get out of your car and just stroll along the streets in this neighborhood. You can walk to either lake for more of everything the lakes have to offer or stick close to the business district, this is where our favorite restaurants and shops reside. There is a strong sense of community here, you will feel it and see it in action at the local establishments. You really do feel like it's a place where everybody knows your name.
Pros
  • clean and close to nature
  • Natural beauty
  • Next to two lakes
  • Local businesses
Cons
  • home prices are on high end
  • Far from highways
  • hard to find parking on some streets in the summer

"Incredible location, gorgeous homes, small and local businesses"

Linden Hills is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Minneapolis. Known for bordering both Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet and having five parks, numerous trails and small local businesses. During the summer the neighborhood is booming with visitors and in the winter you will likely see your neighbors at one of the restaurants or coffee shops. Everything you need is right there in the neighborhood. The only negative I see to Linden Hills is that it takes about 10 minutes just to get to a highway.
Pros
  • Local businesses
  • Artistic vibe
  • Pride in ownership
  • clean and close to nature
  • Cottage homes
  • Natural beauty
  • Next to two lakes
Cons
  • Far from highways
  • hard to find parking on some streets in the summer

"Great little part of Minneapolis"

Having lived in many parts of Minneapolis (Kingfield, Powderhorn, Longfellow, Nordeast), I eventually bought a place in Linden Hills, and have lived here since 2007. The pros and cons others have written are pretty accurate. PROS: It has great schools, friendly people, and beautiful views. It's right next to Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun, summer concerts, awesome restaurants (do breakfast at Zumbro's, get some Thai at Naviya, wait in line for hours to get into Tilia, or skip the wait and hop into Brasserie next door), biking, jogging, Roberts Bird Sanctuary, buy a book and get it signed at the Wild Rumpus, rent a canoe/kayak/paddleboat, swim at South Beach, and people-watch anywhere. CONS: It is a very popular spot, so parking can be hard. Shopping and dining can mean long lines in the summer when the place is PACKED. Houses are very expensive. It is tucked away from the rest of Minneapolis and hard to get to from the highway. (Highway 100 is your best bet.)

  • Great restaurants
  • Great schools
