“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.

“A Lovely Inner City Walk”

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