If you’ve ever wondered about lake homes for sale in Polk County, this is a great time to look into them. This area of western Wisconsin is known for its prime, and relatively inexpensive, lakeshore properties. (Did you know that even Hall of Fame baseball great Kirby Puckett had a lake home on Deer Lake in St Croix Falls?)
Polk County lakes are abundant with fish and the area teems with wildlife. On any given day from your deck you may see deer, interesting wild birds, or even the occasional bear. The lakes in this area are pristine and well cared for which results in quality lake shore living at a reasonable price point.
The benefits to living on a lake are many. Besides the tranquility that comes from sipping your coffee in the morning while watching ducks or loons on the water, you can also enjoy easy access to boating, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and waterskiing.
Sunsets and sunrises are majestic and, if you’re the type of person who enjoys that sort of thing, it’s nice to be able to view those from your own window or deck. The privacy that comes with lake living is another added benefit.
In the winter, you can easily put your shack on the lake right from your own yard. Forgot something? That’s easy, just go home and get it! You can also take advantage of the ice by snowmobile or cross country skis.
Because the number of lake homes for sale in Polk County are limited, there is a good chance your home will retain or increase in value as you live there. This is great if the day comes when you decide to relocate.
Oftentimes, people who are interested in a lake home already have a lakeshore cabin. While these also provide the amenities mentioned above, it can be a challenge to maintain two properties. Owning a lakeshore home allows you to care for only one property and eliminates the need to drive to and fro from the cabin. Imagine all the benefits of cabin living in your own back yard!
