Located 11 miles west of the Twin Cities, Wayzata is a lakeside village highlighted by beautiful neighborhoods, high quality developments, and a thriving business community. Rich in history, Wayzata is home to artwork, antiques, and collectibles. The railroad boom in the late 1860s put Wayzata firmly on the map. James J. Hill brought his great Northern Railroad to Wayzata and the train made daily trips to and from Minneapolis. This convenient means of transportation made Wayzata a weekend destination for the people of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Today, many Minnesotans choose Wayzata as a year-round weekend destination. During the summer months, the sparkling blue waters of Lake Minnetonka feature clusters of sailboats, cruisers, and families enjoying time together along the shores of the lake. In the winter, you’ll see the lake littered with ice houses, skaters, and hockey players of all ages enjoying the frozen surface of Minnesota’s most famous lake.
Located at the northeast tip of the lake, this charming community is nestled around Wayzata Bay, providing unbeatable view of Lake Minnetonka during any time of the year.
