The Lakes of Lake Country

Welcome to the Lake Country Area in the northern part of Waukesha County in Southeast Wisconsin! Located just a short 1.5 – 2 hour drive from the Chicago Area and conveniently nestled between Milwaukee and Madison, you will never be too far from anything! More than 26 lakes play an integral part in the life of the residents in 10 different communities – Oconomowoc, Lac La Belle, Summit, Okauchee, Chenequa, Nashotah, Merton, Hartland, Delafield and Pewaukee. The character of each of these lakes ranges from small “north woods feel” to large “recreational fun.” And, you don’t even have to live ON the lakes to enjoy them! The residents in this area share an affinity with nature that provides recreational activities year-round! The sense of community is strengthened by events such as art festivals, lakefront music festivals, street dances, block parties, outdoor markets and beer gardens. Residents enjoy strong economy, excellent health care facilities, school systems consistently exceeding expectations, churches, convenient shopping for everyday needs and specialty/artisan items, and an abundance of dining choices.
