Welcome to our beautiful Victorian Italinate home built in 1858 and fully restored in 1994. We are located off Excelsior Bay on Lake Minnetonka, near some of the best shopping and restaurants in the Twin Cities. Our home over looks historic Water Street and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. This is the perfect spot for celebrating a special weekend or a fun getaway. We also accommodate business travelers looking for an enjoyable stay while away on business.

The Bird House was a safe, comfortable place to stay while I visited a friend in town. Jeanne had my room ready for an earlier check in and showed me where the snacks and drinks were, including a nice Keurig coffee maker available all day. The living room and front patio are nice places to enjoy reading or talking with other guests. Breakfast was wonderful, everything homemade, and served with the best tomatoes ever from their garden. The house is located at the beginning of a wonderful street of shops, restaurants, with lovely Lake Minnetonka at the end. The Bluebird room was small, but clean with a private hall bath that had a big soaking tub but no shower.

My husband and I went to this b&b had a nice time but I guess did not meet my standards for a b&b. Was decorated a little outdated. Stayed at better ones. Would recommend at maybe a different time or for an older couple.
