Baker National Golf Course

Reviewed By loririchh - Minneapolis, Minnesota

I play Baker a lot and really enjoy the course. I've played it a couple of times this year and the course is in decent, not great shape so far this year. Water hazards come into play on several holes. The course isn't too long from the whites but from the blacks/blues it plays pretty long. A weekend afternoon round can last a little long but so far this year play has moved along pretty well. An sunny afternoon round at Baker is very enjoyable for the scenery.

Beverage cart service on weekends is pretty good, Clubhouse at the turn has food for purchase.

Overall I would recommend Baker to any golfer who enjoys a fair but decent challenge.

Big Stone Mini-golf and Sculpture Garden

Reviewed By polkadots_eve - Minneapolis, Minnesota

After reading many reviews of local activities to get ideas for group activities when some out-of-town guests came to visit, we and our guests set off for a not-insignificant drive to Mound. During the drive I wondered if I had made a mistake but rest assured, it is worth the drive. The mini-golf course is 14 holes versus a traditional 18, but each one is so creative and unique that it is totally worth it. And after the mini-golf .... the sculptures! There are some really incredible and unique sculptures out here in essentially a field in the middle of nowhere. And after the sculptures, farm animals! Donkeys, goats, horses, cows!

Not to mention that the course and sculptures present numerous photo opportunities for anyone so inclined.

We are so glad we made the drive to try this and will absolutely return

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Reviewed By David K - Bloomington, United States

This historic rail trail rolls through some of the most expensive real estate in Minnesota. It goes behind the original Tonka Toys factory and is totally paved. We made it from Wayzata to half way around Lake Waconia and came back, It was 15.5 miles one way for the part that we did, it continues out to western Minnesota, Very smooth, very beautiful and an easy ride. Loved it. The first 13 miles are maintained by The Three Rivers Park District and the remainder by Carver County, It goes by several wineries including Sovereign Lake which was closed this late in the year,

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. Ordered three Grumpy Burgers (double patty, choice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, Canadian bacon, mayo) baskets w/ fries. A pint & two rum & cokes. Good pours. Burgers very good. Service great (attractive, attentive & sharp). Worth a stop.

We attended an all-evening wedding reception aboard what appeared to be a brand new yacht.

Absolutely gorgeous, everything was polished and spotlessly clean. Service of champagne and bartenders were absolutely flawless. Food was good for a buffet.

The cruise on Lake Minnetonka took us out and past many very high-value homes.

Loved it. Best charter we have been on.

Lupine Brewing Company

Reviewed By Brad H - Maple Grove, Minnesota

Went to Lupine brewing the other night to meet up with friends and found the environment friendly but more importantly the beer selections to be full of flavor. The chai vanilla porter was great and packed a flavor punch, the murder of cranberries stout was subtle but smooth tasting, and the Rout brown ale and Oktoberfest selections also delivered on taste. With at least 6 other additional brews to choose from, you're sure to find something appealing. Staff were very friendly and attentive too.

PaddleTap is a custom boat tour company! Roughly 25 to 30 feet in length, with "paddle" stations where you physically move the boat using a custom paddle wheel. There is a table/bar in the middle with coolers that can store your favorite beverage. We have a backup gas motor that is used as needed! Private tours ranging from 10-24 total guests! Located on Lake Minnetonka! The best form of fun possible! PaddleTap has a LazyTap (double deck party pontoon) that is new in 2018. Try that out if Paddling isn't your thing!

Reviewed By bjaeger7 - Plymouth, Minnesota

We booked the Paddletap with a group of good friends. We had an awesome time! The views of Lake Minnetonka were amazing and the boat was a lot of fun. We paddled some and let the motor do the rest! The captains were really friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend taking the tour.....you won't regret it! We also had dinner at Lord Fletcher's before we paddled....very good!
