Lake Minnetonka - Brown's Bay


Welcome to YBC Minnetonka – Brown’s Bay! We have another location as well at Smith’s Bay.

You heard that right! We have TWO locations for your enjoyment!

Whether you are looking for dining, lodging, indoor/outdoor recreation, there are so many activities to do when you visit Lake Minnetonka!

For dining, we highly recommend Lagos Tacos if you are looking for the best taco in town, Tonka Grill & BBQ if you want some delicious summery flavors, or Yumi’s Sushi Bar for an awesome sushi experience! Lord Fletcher’s and Maynard’s are also incredibly popular among our member base. Excelsior Brewing Company is also a great stop on your exploration of Minnetonka, popular for their own events like MaifestBeerthday, and Oktoberfest! 

Need to satisfy your sweet tooth? Stop in at the popular Red Bench Bakery for some delicious and fresh pastries. For all of you coffee lovers, we recommend Dunn Brothers Coffee right off of Lake Street. Pop in for some fresh java before your boat outing! 

Looking to make a weekend of your trip to Lake Minnetonka? We highly recommend the Bird House Inn Bed and Breakfast Hotel! Not only is it stunning, (built in 1858) it is also right in the area so you can explore (just a 7-minute walk from Excelsior Bay and only 19 minutes to Downtown Minneapolis)!

Looking for other outdoor activities? Enjoy some of the gorgeous sites on and around Lake Minnetonka including: The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Lake Minnetonka Regional Park, (with a playground for the kids!) or the Lowry Nature Center! And while you’re on your YBC boating outing, be sure to check out the Crane Island Historic District, an island hub of vacation properties worth sight-seeing.

Minnetonka is a lively area with a wide variety of establishments, so make it the best day ever by booking a boat at YBC Minnetonka and exploring today!
