Lake Wawasee is Indiana's largest natural lake, but it's better known as home to the prestigious Oakwood Resort and an impressive list of celebrities who reportedly enjoy spending time on the shoreline. In addition to an upscale hotel with 80 guest rooms, the resort rents lakeside cabins and vacation homes. People buy Lake Wawasee Real Estate because they enjoy the spectacular views and the long list of water sports and nearby attractions.
When you invest in Lake Wawasee real estate, you can enjoy the views and entertainment year round rather than settling for the occasional visit. Rumors have swirled that celebrities like Oprah Winfrey have purchased lakeside property in the area, and Al Capone was once a regular visitor to the lake. You're clearly in good company whether you invest in vacation rentals or decide to make Lake Wawasee your permanent home.
There are currently more than 1,000 residential homes on the Lake Wawasee shoreline, including rental properties and full-time residents. There are some limitations on where builders can create new homes, since the Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation, the State of Indiana and a variety of wildlife protection agencies are strictly enforcing conservation rules to protect hawks, eagles and many other animals that depend on the lake for survival.
When shopping for Lake Wawasee real estate, you can expect to find lakeside properties with private docks and beaches. While many homes are directly on the lake's main body of water, others are located on channels extending from the lake. Channel property can still deliver immediate access to the water, and you can always boat your way to the main lake for recreational activities.
Once you invest in Lake Wawasee real estate, you will enjoy an enviable lifestyle that many people never experience. For instance, you can boat into the lake and enjoy outdoor church services on Sunday. You can park your boat or other watercraft at the lake's "sand bar" and jump off for safe swimming in water no deeper than four feet. You will also have access to the Wawasee Family Fishing Area where largemouth bass, bluegill and many other varieties of fish will nip at your hooks.
Visitors can access the lake through Lakeside Park or Henry Ward Park in Syracuse, but your lakeside home can deliver a private entrance free of tourists. Residents also have the best access for fishing competitions and other exciting events held on the lake each year. Since there is no enforced speed limit during the day, you may even consider Lake Wawasee the perfect place to add a little excitement into your daily life.
