About the Location:

Lake Country Region

The Lake Country region of Wisconsin (west of Milwaukee) is one of Wisconsin’s best kept secrets. Those who live there relish the summer because, as its name suggests, it’s lake country. Abundant waterfront property, lakeside restaurants, boating activities, and endless summer days characterize this southeastern corner of the midwestern state. The Lake Country region is an affluent yet friendly community west of the big city. But although it offers some of the best outdoor recreational opportunities in the state, that’s not the only thing it’s known for. It’s also a region highly close knit, with a strong emphasis on family values and education. The schools in the Lake Country region are some of the best in the Milwaukee area, even the entire state.

Moving to the area brings charming houses on tree lined streets and idyllic views from the backyard into focus. With a median household income of more than $100k a year, Lake Country is an affluent and sophisticated neighborhood, but one that is also incredibly warm and welcoming as visitors discover what those who live there love so much about it.

On the weekend or downtime, catch a Badgers game or root on the Packers, Brewers, or Bucks. Midwestern sports culture is at its best in the Milwaukee area. As for Lake Country, despite being so close to the bigger city of Milwaukee, the area has preserved the charm of small town living where residents take pride in their community and strive to keep it a great place to live.
