Great place to relax and "chill" near the lake. Currently, one of the few places in Wayzata where you can dock a boat for a bit. Great live music in July on Wednesdays!

We were here with a (family) wedding party. The party was taking photos with Lake Minnetonka in the background while we hung out and walked the grounds. Very pretty, very scenic. Well-maintained.

Great place to visit for kids and adults. Lovely little gardens at the entrance. Learn about Wayzata's history and see all the workings of a vintage rail road station. They let you blow the train horn. Lots of volunteers to make your visit special. Outside...More
