Deephaven Homes & Real Estate



You will know when you have reached Deephaven when you see the Hill Property as you enter the city from the east side of Minnetonka Boulevard. This location is incidentally the shopping district of Deephaven where coffee shops and small stores abound. Another landmark for which the city is known for is the Cottagewood General Store, located adjacent to the Children’s Park. 

Nestled in Lake Minnetonka’s southeast shores and surrounded by woodlands and bays, Deephaven is a refreshing city to visit and to reside in. Its close proximity to Lake Minnetonka allows both visitors and residents a chance to enjoy and bask in the lake’s beauty. 


Deephaven was named after the title of a book. The name was given by a certain Hazel J. Burton, a resident of Carson’s bay, after she was asked to give a name for that railroad station at the foot of the hill. 

Population profile 

Deephaven is an average-sized city with a population of 3,853 as of the 2000 census. There are 1,098 families residing in 1,409 housing units. A great majority or 97.35% are Whites. The rest of the population is composed of a mixture of Hispanics or Latinos, African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, Pacific islanders and other races. 

The residents of Deephaven are on top of the ladder compared to the other Minnesota cities income-wise, with each household having an average income of $101,278. It also has a remarkably low poverty level, with only 1% of families or 2.6% of the total population below the poverty line. 


Deephaven follows a weak Mayor-Council plan which means that the mayor’s power is equal to each council member aside of course from the mayor’s duty to preside over council meetings. 

Where to go 

With 76 acres allocated between the 5 parks that offer basketball courts, hockey rinks and picnic grounds, Deephaven is a veritable destination for outdoor adventure among residents and visitors. Those moving in to the city can look forward to lots of adventures. The five parks are: 

1. Thorpe Park-The Thorpe Park, which is considered the primary park of the Deephaven community, used to be a farm maintained by local farmers George and his father Frank Bennis. It was upgraded by the local government in 1996 and now offers outdoor adventures for families. It offers off-street parking, playground and picnic shelter, flower gardens and a pond, two ball fields, two tennis courts, a warming house, facilities for hockey, inline and open skating, basketball court, trails and a drinking fountain. It is also a good place for those who want to get a good exercise or just relax for a while. 

2. Cottagewood Children Park-The Park will always be remembered as the site where the donkeys of the Hazeltine sisters were allowed to graze. However, they were banned by the city council in 1918 and since then animals were no longer allowed to be tied inside the park. It is also famous for being the venue of the annual celebration of the 4th of July. 

3. Pump Park- It is a small park across the St. Therese Church and mostly used by those who work and reside in the neighborhood. The people maintaining the park are still in search of the old hand pump, which was once located in the park, so they can install it in the park to give it a sense of history.
