"Beautiful neighborhood"

When you walk the streets of Lynnhurst you'll find gorgeous homes in a variety of different styles, tree lined streets and beautifully landscaped yards.

You'll also find Lake Harriet and Minnehaha Creek, both part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway they provide residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities; walking, running, fishing, sailing, paddle boarding, canoeing and swimming. Lake Harriet is also a great place to catch a concert and grab a bite to eat. Bread and Pickle recently opened in the bandshell, it's a great spot to stop and enjoy the view. The neighborhood also boasts great local restaurants like George and the Dragon, The Lynn and The Malt Shop as well as unique local shops like Patina and Zinnea.

The average home price in the Lynnhurst neighborhood is $498K. This is based on information from the Regional Multiple Listing Service of Minnesota Inc for the period of 09/01/2012/09/01/2013.

"Its like living in a small town, in a big city"

I have been a Lynnhurst Resident for 10 years and have really grown to love it. My kids go to Burroughs Elementary School which is just a fantastic place. The teachers are great, and there is strong parent involvement. There is a very strong sense of community. Many of the local businesses, shops and restaurants are owned and operated by Lynnhurst Residents, which I think is important. And of course, the proximity to Lake Harriet, and Minnehaha Creek/Parkway running right through the neighborhood gives it that extra special character.
Pros
  • closeness to lake area for reasonable price
  • Close to I-35W

"Great Lake Community"

One of the more popular neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Lynnhurst is in the southwest region of the city. While its homes are not the least expensive of the metro, they are more reasonably priced than those just to the north along the lakes. The current average price of a home in this area is just below $300,000, and most of the homes are owned. The homes have been largely renovated over the years, and the yards are typically large and well-maintained. Unlike the nearby Lyndale neighborhood, Lynnhurst does not have very many apartment buildings for rent.
Lynnhurst also gives residents great access to the lake regions, including the very popular Lake Harriet witch it borders directly in the north. The lakes are great places for year round activities, including boating, swimming, and skating. Another one of the great water attractions for the area is Minnehaha Creek which flows right through the neighborhood.
Even though Lynnhurst is one of the outlying neighborhoods of Minneapolis, residents can still often find what they need from retail in their own community. There are nice shops, restaurants, and unique little stores along the streets. If you need larger retail options it is sometimes even a good idea to then travel outside of the Minneapolis district to one of the suburbs to the south or west. These are often closer and have less traffic than if you travelled further into the city.
Pros
  • closeness to lake area for reasonable price
Cons
  • further from retail
