Food scene
A most excellent Asian fusion restaurant, in high demand in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. I recommend ordering in advance (like, at 11am when they open, for an evening meal pick-up) for take-out, or making a reservation for dining in. Located .5 miles from the cottage.

Located near the Linden Hills shopping area, Lake Harriett is a wonderful lake to walk around. Be sure to catch the rose garden on the NE side of the lake, and the live arts happening throughout the summer at the Bandshell. A quick walk up the hill to the west of the lake leads to quaint shops including Sebastian Joe’s ice cream. If you like chocolate, I recommend Nicollet Pothole 😉

Gorgeous neighborhood, leisurely place to walk, and connected via waterway to Bde Maka Ska, Cedar Lake and Brownie Lake. During winter months you can ice skate, play hockey, and make use of the warming house on the east side of the lake. In February Lake of the Isles is the location for the Luminary Loppet: a ticketed event (must purchase tickets in advance), patrons are released in waves throughout the evening to walk, ski or snowshoe around Lake of the Isles, taking in the breathtaking ice sculptures and luminaries, as well as live music, hot beverages, and food trucks. It is truly remarkable!

What better place to have a library than on Library Lane? :) Our local library here in St Louis Park is small & cozy, and offers rooms in which you can work if you’re looking for a quiet spot to get away, hold meetings, etc. Located 1 mile south of the cottage. If you need a bigger library, check out the one located near Ridgedale Mall, about 3.5 miles from the cottage.
