Views we live for in Minnesota - Noerenberg Gardens

Picture perfect day on Lake Minnetonka

The azaleas are of the “Northern Lights” series, a Minnesota hybrid developed for bud-hardiness down to –35 degrees Fahrenheit.

Widely regarded as one of the finest formal gardens in Minnesota, Noerenberg Gardens was the lake estate of Grain Belt Brewery founder Frederick Noerenberg and his family. Noerenberg’s daughter Lora Noerenberg Hoppe bequeathed her family’s estate in 1972 with the directive that the house be razed and the estate be maintained as a garden for the public’s enjoyment.
