Minnetonka Beach is located on the shores of Lake Minnetonka.

In 1884, Minnetonka Beach was annexed by Medina Township. The community was incorporated as an independent village in 1894.
After the Hotel Lafayette burned in 1897, a portion of the property became home to the Lafayette Club. The original clubhouse of the Lafayette Club was built in 1900 and burned in 1922. The current clubhouse was constructed in 1924.
