Big Spirit Lake Real Estate

Nestled right below the Minnesotan-Iowa border, Big Spirit Lake belongs to Iowa's largest natural lake spanning 6 miles north/south and 4 miles east/west. Year-round residents find themselves living on the Northern end of the lake, while more seasonal homeowners dwell on the Southern shorelines. Big Spirit Lake real estate is the number one choice for those who wish to be immersed in a more rustic and natural setting. With less commercial development along the shorelines compared to the other lakes in the region, properties found here are typically remodeled fishing cottages dating back to the 30s, as well as more upscale larger lakefront homes. These lakefront homes always have flawless views of the sparkling water, accompanied with private dock access, perfect for your collection of boats, canoes, and jet skis.

West Okoboji Lake Real Estate

The bluest and deepest of the lakes, West Okoboji Lake offers residents more recreational activities and real estate developments out of all of the Great Lakes. As you explore properties in this area, you'll find that much of the real estate here is seasonal, offering cozy lake-front condo complexes, cottages with boat access, and some luxury lakefront real estate options. Residents living here year-round in West Okoboji real estate experience feasible access to the surrounding towns. Due to this being the region's most popular lake, the property values are typically higher when compared to other Iowa Great Lakes homes for sale.

East Okoboji Lake Real Estate

East Okoboji Lake meets West Okoboji Lake at Highway 71 viaduct joining Arnolds Park and Okoboji. It's the longest natural lake in Iowa and is the most developed out of the Iowa Great Lakes. Though it's not the most popular place to swim, residents benefit from having easy access to boat ramps, calmer waters, and more affordable lakefront real estate. The majority of East Okoboji lakefront homes for sale are new condominiums, manufactured homes, and contemporary single-family homes. You'll also find the odd mid-century modern home that's been renovated to meet today's design and living standards.

Minnewashta, Upper & Lower Gar Lake Real Estate

Located between Upper & Lower Gar Lake, Minnewashta Lake offers more real estate opportunities compared to its neighboring lakes. Minnewashta lakefront real estate has charming cottages with private dock access, new condos, and some breathtaking luxury lakeside estates that can accommodate more than one family at a time.

Upper Gar Lake is quieter with a smaller population. In terms of real estate, Upper Gar Lake waterfront homes for sale are quite similar to what you'll find around Minnewashta Lake, but you'll have a better chance to diversify your home by building on untouched lakefront acreage or lot. Upper Gar Lake real estate offers prefabricated homes with lakefront access; the perfect turnkey options for seasonal buyers.

Lower Gar Lake is the southernmost lake out of all of the Iowa Great Lakes chain and is best known for its shoreline fishing, made possible by the lakes shallow water. Interested home buyers will have plenty of lakefront options to choose from the latest development at Pelican Ridge. Prefabricated homes and new rancher-style lakefront properties with communal dock access are available here. Most of Lower Gar Lake is protected so there's not a lot of inventory to choose from for the time being.

Does living in Iowa's finest lakefront real estate appeal to you? If so, be sure to get in touch with our Okoboji area experts at Hoien Realty! Our team is dedicated to finding you the best lakefront real estate options!
