About Wayzata, MN
Wayzata is a small lakeside community in Hennepin County, Minnesota, United States. It is about 16 miles west of Minneapolis, just outside the Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area, on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. It is known for its small town environment. It has historically been a place for the wealthy of Minneapolis to have their country estates and summer cottages. The name "Wayzata" comes from the Dakota word meaning “north” or “north shore.” The Mdewakanton, a subtribe of the Dakota nation, treasured Lake Minnetonka—the "Big Water"—as a place for hunting, fishing, and harvesting wild rice and maple sap.
