Enjoy the charm of historic Excelsior. We welcome you to The Guest House, and specifically our newly remodeled Carriage House. This is the perfect vacation home for families from near and far. The Guest House is steps away from an abundance of fine dining, shopping and beautiful Lake Minnetonka! Also located along the 15 mile Lake Minnetonka Regional bike trail, which travels east to Minneapolis, or West to Victoria and several beautiful regional parks. You will surely leave your stay with us energized, yet relaxed and refreshed.

Only 25 minutes from Downtown Minneapolis or MSP airport and two blocks from scenic Lake Minnetonka, our community is full of activities year round. The home overlooks downtown Excelsior’s popular Water Street, selected as one of the sixteen “best main streets in America” by Parade Magazine.
