Excellent location for sightseeing Excelsior, especially for the 4th of July. Mia was easy to work with and graciously left accommodations/supplies available for children (as we were staying with several young kids). Great back yard for grilling and relaxing.

Mia's house was great! We spent majority of our time at a golf tournament outside of town, but her house was the perfect location. It's very convenient to walk to all shops and restaurants that Excelsior has to offer. We had a wonderful week, and Mia was easy to work with and made the process very easy.

We had an absolutely marvelous week in Mia's cottage, which I would actually describe as a full size home with all of the extras including a wonderful master suite on the top floor. Mia and Mike were so gracious to allow us in a little early and met us to show us how everything worked. It is such a charming home with their may personal items adding so much charm. It's only a couple of blocks to the beach and the great public park, "The Commons" where we had a front row seat for the 4th of July fireworks display over Lake Minnetonka. The very walkable Excelsior main street is only a few blocks down the street with a great coffee shop, restaurants, bars and a super good grocery store. The whole trip was magical. So many superlatives, we will be back!

We had a wonderful stay at Mia's place! She was very responsive, accommodating and helpful prior to and during our stay. The place is gorgeous and in a fantastic location in Excelsior close to the water and downtown restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is lovely and very quiet. The house clean and beds were comfy! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a cozy retreat in beautiful Excelsior!
