Deephaven Highlights:

  • One of the earliest hotels built in the area was built in Deephaven at the present Walden Site in Deephaven Park.  The Hotel St Louis could house 400 guests and vacationers from all over the country who came to spend their summers at this luxury hotel. 

  • Another hotel, located in the current Cottagewood part of Deephaven, called the Keewaydin Hotel, also helped accommodate the growing amount of tourists to the area.

  • Unfortunately at the turn of the century, both of Deephaven’s luxury hotels were destroyed by fire.

  • Deephaven is also home to the Minnetonka Yacht Club. MYC was founded in 1882 and is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the country. MYC has two facilities- one on Lighthouse Island and the Carson’s Bay facility. 

  • The Cottagewood General Store in Deephaven is pure Americana. Since 1895, the Cottagewood General Store has been serving up a healthy dose of Norman Rockwell-esque perfection.  The General Store still sells penny candy, hosts backyard barbecues, and neighbors coming together at this central neighborhood location. The store sits adjacent to the Cottagewood Children’s Park and has Friday evening Grill Nights, a family Fourth of July celebration, breakfast with Santa, and many more community events. The store is run by the non-profit Cottagewood Community Foundation and people can buy in and help support this darling piece of history.

  • Cottagewood is a sub-neighborhood of Deephaven and is one of the highest-demand neighborhoods on Lake Minnetonka.

  • Community docks are available for the residents of Deephaven throughout the city.
