Stonewood has crafted a legendary lake cottage, nestled on the Western shore of Lake Minnetonka in Minnetrista. Architecturally influenced by traditional lakeshore homes with nautical elements, this 9,418 square-foot cottage has everything today’s lakeside residence should offer plus many wonderful surprises.

  • With its curved, gabled roofline, balconies and stone chimneys with copper chimney pots and barrel vaulted, covered entry porch, the home’s impressive exterior promises impeccable design and craftsmanship within
  • A two-story boathouse delights family and guests alike for lakeside enjoyment, and besides boats, it is meant to store all the gear you need
  • Float around and enjoy the view from the lakeside pool. Then stop at the pub booth with bar and adjoining outdoor kitchen
  • The fabulous main kitchen showcases a custom stainless steel Jade range/hood, expansive storage including a full pantry and natural soapstone countertops
  • With a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald and friends, the “smoking room,” with its own ventilation system, has a lake view, fireplace and reclaimed wood floor and walls
  • Spiral stairs in the black walnut-paneled library and office give secret access to the master suite
  • Materials are meticulously selected and crafted, like the sunroom’s stone on walls and full range bluestone floor. Unique wallcoverings bring distinct personality to every room and crafted wood details include a reclaimed live edge bar top
  • The master suite has shiplap, double-barrel vaulted ceiling, fireplace and bath with marble floors and countertops. Enjoy coffee from your balcony overlooking the lake
  • A guest apartment has its own kitchenette and private bath. Kids love a hidden room as well as a porthole-inspired bunkroom
  • The lower level is a resort all its own, with extensive wine cellar, bar, game room with pinball machines, karaoke stage, screen room and exercise room
  • A pet room! Handy maintenance and the cats approve. There’s not just a mudroom, but also an oversized closet for gear
