History of Minnetrista

Lake Minnetonka Campfire - Minnetrista MinnesotaAs with other Lake Minnetonka communities, Minnetrista owes its beginnings to the Native Americans that originally inhabited the area. The rolling landscape throughout Minnetrista could be attributed to the mounds built by the Natives. Being a perfect place for peace and serenity, Frank J. Halstead, one of the original settlers purchased a forty acre plot of land that became known as the Hermitage. Together with his brother, the hermitage attracted tourists to observe their remote style of lakeshore living. After the brothers’ passing, Halstead Bay, the furthest west bay on Lake Minnetonka, was named in their honor. This bay is currently home to many substantial lakeshore manors. The residential area is still known by those who live there as “The Hermitage.” Minnetrista retains the remote atmosphere that was originally sought by the first settlers, evident in the homes that are built into its beautiful landscape.

The bluffed lots perched one hundred feet above the shoreline offer unparalleled displays of the lake. And with boat traffic lighter on the western side of the lake, similar to the tranquility found in the Northwoods, homeowners relish the quiet waters and calming views.
