The Best of Lake Minnetonka Since 1996!

Tonka Bay

Tonka Bay was originally settled in 1853. Twenty years later Tonka Bay experienced a rapid growth period. Expensive cottages popped up along the shore, and in 1879 a magnificent hotel was built just across from Big Island.

The Tonka Bay Hotel boasted “all the modern conveniences,” including: long, luxurious porches; music and dancing; amateur theatricals; gourmet cuisine and steamships that left on the hour for various “exotic” destinations.

Now-days, Tonka Bay is less like a resort town and more like a cozy neighborhood. But if you know where to look, you can still find some excitement brewing.
