East Isles is a neighborhood within the larger Calhoun-Isles community in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. It lies between Hennepin Avenue to the east, Lake of the Isles to the west, West Lake Street to the south, and West 22nd Street to the north. Together with parts of Lowry Hill East and other nearby neighborhoods, East Isles is part of the larger, but unofficial, Uptown neighborhood.
Architects William Gray Purcell and George Grant Elmslie designed the Catherine Gray House in this neighborhood, at 2409 Lake of the Isles Boulevard; it is currently owned by Brian and Mary Longe. Behind the Catherine Gray House, on Lake Place, is another significant project by Purcell & Elmslie – the Purcell-Cutts House. The Cutts family bought the house years later and lived there for many years, and then donated the home to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The home is now a museum and is open to the public for tours. Signs denoting the neighborhood incorporate that window designs of this house.
