Lake Homes & Properties for Sale in Minneapolis – Member of Northstar Minnesota MLS
In Minnesota, we’re blessed by being a state containing an almost endless number of lakes. In Minneapolis, itself, several beautiful lakes are within the city limits. Offering easy access to fishing, boating, and other recreational opportunities, these lakes are jewels set in urban surroundings. Neighborhoods that include one of these lakes are always popular with Minneapolis homeowners, and are eagerly sought by home buyers. Surrounded by parks, these city lakes bring a bit of the beauty of Minnesota’s natural heritage right into our largest urban area.
Each of Minneapolis lakes is surrounded by parkland, making lakefront homes not an option for home buyers. However, homes in neighborhoods near these lakes provide easy access for nearby residents, who take full advantage of the benefit of the parks and other facilities. These lakes include:
- The Chain of Lakes – Located in the western side of Minneapolis, this chain of lakes includes larger lakes, like Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, Lake Calhoun, and Lake Harriet, along with smaller lakes, like Wirth Lake and Brownie Lake. In an area bounded by West Broadway to the north, Lyndale Avenue on the east, and 50th Street West on the south, and the city limits of Minneapolis on the west, the neighborhoods around these lakes have been popular places to live for many decades.
- Diamond Lake – Just to the east of I-35W, and near the southern edge of Minneapolis, this small lake is surrounded by parkland and is a charming corner of the city.
- Lake Nokomis & Lake Hiawatha – Located in the southeastern quarter of the city, and home to a large and inviting park, these two substantial lakes also sport an urban golf course and offer fishing and other activities. The neighborhoods around these lakes offer many opportunities for homebuyers.
- Powderhorn Lake – This tiny lake, located in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood, is a tiny gem in the city, and the neighborhood around it is popular with families.
