Lay of the Landing: Lake Minnetonka Has a New Luxe Hotel

The Hotel Landing is the first hotel to open on Lake Minnetonka in half a century.

Good news for couples who want a lakeside wedding: The Hotel Landing will be the first hotel in more than 50 years to open on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. Even better news: The boutique property is stunning.

In addition to the 92 sparkling guest rooms, two-story restaurant and Nordic-inspired spa, the hotel, which opened June 16, is a versatile wedding venue. Ceremony and reception sites include the Great Lawn, a large balcony for more intimate ceremonies and the 2,710-square-foot Wayzata Ballroom.

“Our reception space is truly one of a kind and designed with weddings in mind,” says Andrea Vieyra, director of sales and marketing for the Hotel Landing. “Our ballroom is overflowing with natural light, so guests will feel connected with nature and the beautiful lakefront throughout the entire event.”

The ballroom holds 200 guests and is fully customizable, which means you can create the indoor/outdoor rustic wedding of your dreams, or a super-sleek modern affair. And because the hotel is the only venue in the area built to accommodate so many people, the elevator is the only ride home you’ll need. The Hotel Landing, Wayzata, 952.777.7900,
