“Beautiful area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Loved the Lake Calhoun area. It is beautiful and relaxing and a great place for canoing. A plus for me are the beautiful homes you get to see in Lake Calhoun.

“Excellent Canoeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

As a team building exercise our company rented canoes at calhoun and twenty of us paddled around lake of the isles for the afternoon. it was a hilarious and humbling experience learning to paddle in the backseat, it looks so easy in the movies.

“awestruck by the beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

when visiting Minneapolis, you MUST walk or bike around Lake of the Isle- gorgeous lake, beautiful homes, peaceful, tranquility. All the lakes and biking trails provide beauty and energy to enjoy- Cedar lake, Calhoun Lake, and Lake Harriet are all wonderful!

Very peaceful and great for walking, running, or rollerblading....nothing rushed over here in the quietness of the neighborhood.

This is a 2.5 mile walk through parkland and handsome houses in a residential area little more than a mile from downtown.
