“The Fancy Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We call this lake Fancy because the houses all around it are amazing. Walking or biking around this lake gives you inspiration, and truly feeds your architectural appetite for a good month. We prefer biking around this lake, just due to its odd shape, but that also makes the walk more interesting than some lakes (especially others which have more foliage to block your views). You tend to see more peaceful and interesting things on this lake as well... such as painters and "sit-in's".

“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.

“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!
