Brown's Bay is named after James B. Brown, an early settler on Lake Minnetonka from Kentucky. Brown's Bay has 3.7 miles of shoreline and 696 acres of water within the bay. Located near Lower Lake North, Tanager Lake, Wayzata Bay, and Smiths Bay, this body of water is one of the 37 lakes and bays which are interconnected and make up all of the Lake Minnetonka Bays.
Bracketts Point and Lookout Point form the western and eastern boundaries of Brown's Bay, which abuts Lower Lake North. Water depth is anywhere from 10 feet to 80 feet, and water clarity has been designated A by the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for the area. Spirit Island, Tanager Lake, and Peavey Lake are part of the ecosystem that makes up Brown's Bay which is located primarily in Orono and Wayzata.
You can see Brown's Bay from shoreline drive as you motor past North Shore Marina, and those who venture down Ferndale Road West can also catch glimpses of the Bay to the south. Brown's Bay is also home to some of the most expensive homes on Lake Minnetonka, with the recently torn down Southways Estate on Bracketts Point being a prime example at over 36,000 square feet.
