Best Reasons To Live On A Lake!

Best Reasons To Live On A Lake

Michigan is a great place to live, work and play year-round, but summer truly brings out the best of our state. We're known for having more shoreline than any other state in the United States, not to mention, we have over 11,000 inland lakes. According to the Michigan Historical Society, you are never more than 6 miles from an inland lake or 85 miles from one of our Great Lakes.

So what's the big splash about living on a lake? Since were Michigan natives, let us tell you. 

1. Relaxation

Studies prove that water can provide relaxation. So what better way to unwind from a long day at work than by sitting on your waterfront deck? Living on a lakefront property provides you a daily dose of relaxation both in the morning and at night. 

2. Entertainment

Your house will be the it place to be. Everyone will want to come spend the sunny days in your backyard oasis. Take advantage of your popularity and host BBQ's and parties from late spring to early fall (weather permitting). 

3. Recreation

Your home is the ultimate playground. Living on a lake gives you endless possibilities, jet skis, boating, fishing, kayaking, the list goes on and on! It's time to suit up!

5. Kids

Having a lake is perfect your kids. They can spend their summer days outside and out of your hair. What better joy will you get out of life than watching your kiddos have a fun day on the water?

6. Property Value

Living on a lake is a big deal! The resale value for homes with water access is huge. We suggest investing in a waterfront property. 


Living on a lake provides breathtaking views. You'll find Instagram worthy pictures are available morning and night. Lights, camera, action!

8. Privacy - No traffic

Homes that are located on/near lakes typically give you more privacy and isolation. More isolation means less traffic, especially if you reside on a private lake.
