Lake Minnetonka short term rentals

Hi all,

We are two families traveling to Minneapolis for a Korean Adoptive family conference, and are looking to stay near the lake for a few days afterwards to unwind. From June 29 (Sunday) to Wednesday July 2nd.

I grew up in Excelsior, Deephaven, and in Cottagewood - but haven't been back in 30 years.

and would love to be able to take my kids to the area I grew up in. We are 4 parents, two teens, and a 11, 9, and 5 year old.

I've looked at VRBO etc - and made inquries - but I'm wondering if anyone has resources beyond that.

Thanks in advance for any leads or assistance.

The lake are has become much a bedroom community. It will be tough to find a house to rent for short term near Tonka. You might want to look at a Hotel near Ridgedale or Eden Prairie and either drive or get a taxi.

Otherwise you are doing what I would do.
