Lake Mendota Architecture

Homes on Lake Mendota range from modest one-story ranches to spectacular multiple level, multi-million dollar homes complete with elevators and extensive parking and storage for your all your toys. As more and more of the older homes on Lake Mendota are torn down and replaced with new homes, prices on Lake Mendota have soared, especially in Madison, Shorewood Hills, and Middleton. Homes located on Lake Mendota in Maple Bluff tend to be larger and more worthy of restoring but some have nonetheless been torn down and replaced as well, resulting in some of the areas most incredible lakefront homes and estates. Maple Bluff is where you'll typically find the largest Lake Mendota lots, although there are still some wonderful opportunities on the north side of Lake Mendota in nearby Westport. In addition to wonderful vintage gems and modern showcase homes on Lake Mendota, you'll also find both old and new Lake Mendota condos for sale in and around the Madison area.

Lake Mendota Lifestyles

The University of Wisconsin-Madison borders the south shore of Lake Mendota, making areas lake homes in Shorewood Hills especially popular with U.W. professors and doctors who need to remain within short commuting distance of the U.W. Hospital & Clinics. Madison Wisconsin summers offer a mild climate with average temperatures of 67 degrees. Wiling away the time will be relatively comfortable in the summer and you'll certainly be able to enjoy sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of your pier or deck. Lake Mendota is a sports-friendly lake so be sure to bring your motorboat, your sailboat, your jet skis and your waterskis. Stick around in the winter and there are no shortage of cold weather activities to enjoy on Lake Mendota either: ice skating, ice fishing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, kite flying and kite skating, just to name a few!
