SWMN Lake Life

WELCOME! Everyone knows Minnesota is "Land of 10,000 Lakes", but have you had the chance to encounter lake life here in Southwest MN!? I can promise you - you'll grow to LOVE it! I am your Lakes Area Shoreline expert! Whether buying or selling (residential or commercial), you have found your go-to person. I grew up living 6 miles West of Lake Shetek and spent many evenings and weekends out at the lake at our family cabin. The name Shetek is derived from "pelican" in the Ojibwe language.

LOCATION: Lake Shetek & Lake Sarah aren't far from many surrounding towns - whether its running to Slayton or Tracy or Marshall for groceries, coffee, lunch, or downtown shopping - it is the perfect middle of the road location to come for a week or weekend with family & friends! Looking for something fun to do? End-O-Line Railroad ParkLake Shetek State ParkPainted Prairie Vineyard, & Casey Jones State Trail are just a few hidden gems in the area to check out!

THINGS YOU'LL LOVE: Whether it's recreation, fishing, or quiet time at the lake, Lake Shetek & Lake Sarah offer it all. Don't forget to check out Key Largo on Lake Shetek or Pelican Cove! Whether visiting by land or sea, these two options are the perfect spot to catch a drink & dinner or enjoy live entertainment on the weekends! If you don't already, you will grow to love The Lakes area. And when you are ready to make it 'home' or your home away from home, I'll be here!
