Lac La Belle
Bright blue lakes and rolling hills punctuate this desirable area in
northwestern Waukesha County. Boating and fishing are popular
here. This is an area filled with natural wonders, most of them
created by glaciers thousands of years ago.
Lapham Peak
, located
in the
Kettle Moraine State Forest
near Delafield, is the highest
point in the county with an elevation of 1,233 feet above sea level.
It is also near one of the hottest development areas, with many
new upscale homes and subdivisions, especially near Oconomowoc
and Delafield.
Delafield
is an antique hunter’s dream. The village has taken
on a decidedly historic theme. Following the lead of
The LANG
Companies
, which is based here, several new buildings have been
designed with Williamsburg-style motifs. It also is home to
St.
John’s Northwestern Military Academy
, one of the oldest and
most respected military schools in the nation.
Lake Country was once known as the “Newport of the West.”
Between 1870 and 1930, hundreds of Milwaukee, Chicago and St.
Louis residents took the train to
Oconomowoc
to relax at the
resorts or in one of the area’s many palatial houses. Lake Road in
Oconomowoc Lake
used to be known as
“President’s Avenue”
because so many of the country’s leaders vacationed here,
including Taft, Grant, Cleveland, Coolidge, McKinley and Teddy
Roosevelt.
Hartland
is located in the center of Waukesha County’s Lake
Country. Twelve major lakes are located within five miles of the
village, which features a scenic downtown surrounded by homes
dating back to the 1920s.
Pewaukee
is located on the
northeastern edge of Pewaukee Lake, the largest lake in the area
for sailing, waterskiing, boating and swimming. It also yields more
fish per acre than any other lake in the state. Local and national
sailing regattas are common throughout the summer. During the
winter, the lake is speckled with ice-fishing shanties. Given the
beauty of its natural surroundings and its central location in the
metropolitan region, this area is home to many new subdivisions
and business parks.
Chenequa
is a small, exclusive community that
features expansive homes wrapped around the shores of
prestigious Pine Lake.
New Berlin/Muskego
Although originally settled in the 1800s, most of this area was
developed in the last 40 years as Milwaukee moved westward. For
the most part, these are rural communities that don’t have
traditional downtown districts.
New Berlin
boasts many beautiful
homes. There is a variety of subdivisions within this expansive and
still-growing community, from compact, neighborhood-type
developments to sprawling subdivisions with estate-type
properties. Water lovers flock to
Muskego
, which offers three
lakes for summer and winter enjoyment – Big Muskego Lake, Little
