About Minnesota

Lake Living in Minnesota

Looking for a lake house? What better place to look than the "Land of 10,000 Lakes"? All counted, whoever coined the term actually underestimated the number of lakes in the northern state by a good bit. There are just shy of 12,000 lakes in the great state of Minnesota, to go along with its 34,000+ miles of rivers and streams. It is a truly a treasure trove for anyone looking for fresh waterfront property and lakefront real estate. It even shares a border with Lake Superior. Many of the best lakes in Minnesota are found across the northern part of the state in the midst of one of the most beautiful and untamed wilderness areas in the United States, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, which spans over 1,000,000 acres.

My Minnesota

Minnesota's rich Native American history reached a critical point when French Fur traders arrived to the area in the 17th century. The American flag's permanence in the state would have to wait until 1858, when the territory became the 32nd U.S. state in 1858. Today, Minnesota, or the Northern Star State is known for its exceptionally kind people, outstanding affordability, and clean, natural beauty. Because of this, Minnesotans work hard to protect their pristine bodies of water and preserve them for fishing, boating, canoeing, and summertime swimming. Whether you're looking for a summer lake home in Minnesota, a peaceful place to retire, a close-knit lake community, or just a great investment, Minnesota is a great place to start your search for lake property. Here on Lakehouse.com, there are 1,383 lake properties available, and 238 with private lakes, ponds, or creeks. You search by lake, city, county, or by clicking around the interactive map.

Twin Cities and Small Towns

Minnesota has plenty of busy cities like St. Paul, Rochester, and Minneapolis, to name a few. These cities are renowned for being both green and clean. With the fresh air, green spaces, and bike trails, Minnesota residents are characteristically active and happy. The Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis draw many visitors, and for good reason. If not for the beer-brewing hub of the U.S., visitors come for the world-famous Mall of the Americas, an amazing assortment of amusement parks, museums, and parks perfect for the whole family, or exciting professional sports. The Twin Cities boast pro teams in every major sport: The Minnesota Vikings (NFL), Minnesota Twins (MLB), Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA), Minnesota Wild (NHL), and Minnesota United FC (MLS).

Minnesota is also chock-full of charming small towns, many with their own lakes. After after, its hard to throw a stone in Minnesota without it landing in a lake. Grand Marais is one such spot: a picturesque, quiet, mountainous beach town on the shores of Lake Superior.
