Fairway Living at the Lake: The Best of Both Worlds

If you love spending time on Indian Lake, somewhere along the line you have probably dreamed of owning lakefront property. What could be more relaxing than waking up, ambling downstairs, and enjoying a steaming cup of coffee while watching the sun dance on the water?  Spending your weekends on your boat, enjoying the sun and grilling. 

What could be better than that?

Well, we have one other option that is not only convenient but beautiful and cost-effective.  While there are a ton of advantages of living right on the lake, Indian Lake also offers a second location that could appeal to you just as much (or possibly even more) than lakefront living. This is owning a home right on the fairway!

Purchasing a home on one of the pristine golf courses at Indian Lake truly gives a homeowner the best of both worlds. You get to enjoy fairway living and still have ALL of the perks of a lakefront home- and often at a fraction of the price!  

Advantages of Fairway Living

Choosing a home on one of the golf courses in the Indian Lake area, including the Indian Lake Golf Club and the Northwinds Golf Course,  is an attractive option for many buyers. For golfers, proximity to the golf course is an obvious perk, but the benefits do not stop there.  Homes on the fairway offer the same picturesque beauty found through the Laurel Mountains. Your home may look out onto the scenic views of the fairway itself or out at the mountain scenery.  Many lots are partially wooded, giving you that feeling of truly being in the mountains–but without the isolation of real mountain living. Homes on the fairway are conveniently located for families with children, commuters, and retirees.  Children will attend the nearby Shanksville-Stonycreek schools, a highly rated school system. Commuters will enjoy easy access to nearby highways. It is just a 25-minute drive to the Somerset Turnpike Exchange.  

Homes on the fairway are a great choice for people working in Johnstown, Bedford, Somerset, and Latrobe.  Retirees will enjoy that same easy access to the turnpike as well as the short drive to any of the several golf courses found within a 30-minute drive. And one of the best features of homes on the fairway is the price; you can often find larger homes at smaller prices! Fairway living is often a much less expensive option than a home on the lakefront itself, making it a more accessible option for many buyers.

Easy Access to Indian Lake

In addition to the many advantages of living on the fairway, homes on one of the local golf courses offer easy access to Indian Lake.  Fairway properties come with full lake privileges to Indian Lake, a private lake with no public access. Many fairway homes are actually located within walking distance of the lake.  This makes it easy to take part in all of the outdoor activities available at Indian Lake such as boating, fishing, swimming, or just going out to dinner at a lakefront restaurant.  

This easy access is available year-round.  Snowmobiles and ATVs are welcome in the Indian Lake community, so it is easy to get around even when it is not walking weather.  Boaters can dock their boats at the Indian Lake Marina, Wenatchee Park, or other private docks.

Fairway living offers easy access to the lake along with the many advantages of fairway living.  Whether you are dead set on a lake house, love the idea of fairway living, or could be happy with anything in between, give us a call at Indian Lake Realty.  We are committed to helping you find a home in the Indian Lake area that works for you.
