"NORTH SHORE" OF THE LAKE 

The word Wayzata is derived from a Lakota Sioux phrase meaning North Shore. The city is located in the North East corner of Lake Minnetonka.  Wayzata is one of the oldest cities on the lake. It was originally inhabited by the Dakota Indians, transferred ownership to Spain and then France, and was eventually sold to the United States of America from France in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase.

The city began growing in 1855 with new residents that created a local commerce hub by building a sawmill, blacksmith shop and a hotel.  James J. Hill and his western expansion of the railroad system helped grow Wayzata’s tourism by making it a popular summer destination for Minneapolis inhabitants. The city hasn’t stopped growing since!  

Wayzata, with its booming downtown area, has the most robust retail and restaurant scene out of any other Lake community. The city offers transient docks within steps to downtown so if driving to dinner or the shops by boat suits your fancy, then you'll always have a place to complementary park while you shop and dine.  

The Wayzata real estate markets offers a diverse variety of homes and there is wide range of properties such as:  

  • downtown homes that highlight walk ability 

  •  neighborhoods of new construction

  •  historic neighborhoods with homes from the '20s

  • the “Gold Coast” of Lake Minnetonka- the prestigious streets of Bushaway and Ferndale with their sprawling lake lots and palatial homes

  • new condominiums, townhomes and one level living added to downtown Wayzata. There is even an assisted living complex that provides independent living options all the way to 24/7 hour nursing home assistance.

Wayzata, with its close proximity to downtown Minneapolis (12.5 miles), plentiful amenities with restaurants and shops, municipal docks, and lots of property choices, is a fun and exciting place to call home.  There are great schools and easy public access to Lake Minnetonka makes Wayzata a perfect choice for both lakeshore and non lakeshore real estate.

Wayzata has its own Police Department, Fire Department, Post Office and City Hall. The multiple fire and police stations help ensure a quick response time. Over the past few years, the rate of crime has decreased by over 40%.  The overall crime rate for the city of Wayzata is 39% lower than the national average making it a safe and secure place to call home.
