A Brief History…

Deephaven was settled in the mid-1850s and was originally part of Minnetonka. It never became a major tourist destination to rival Wayzata or Excelsior, but it had its quiet charm. Wealthy industrialists were attracted to its rustic beauty and made their homes along the shore. In 1879, the Hotel Saint Louis was built on the bluffs overlooking Saint Louis Bay. This luxurious Victorian getaway, perched high above the lake, offered a sweeping panorama with an unobstructed view of Ice Boat Club Island, Yacht Club Island, and Big Island. A secluded beach was added nearby, and soon, charming waterfront cottages dotted the shoreline and wooded hills. The hotel is gone, but many of the cottages and much of the charm still remains.
