Finding Lake Homes in Northeastern Twin Cities Suburbs, Minnesota

MN Twin Cities Real Estate MLS For many Minneapolis St. Paul metro area homeowners, owning a lake home, either on the shores of a lake or nearby, brings up images of Lake Minnetonka, with its mansions on the shore selling for millions of dollars. They may also think about homes on lakes far from the Twin Cities. It surprises many home buyers that lake living can be as close as a nearby suburb. One of the prime areas in nearby suburbs of Minneapolis St. Paul are the communities just to the north of the Twin Cities. These northeastern suburbs offer many opportunities to buy lakefront and lakeview homes, along with homes in close proximity to lakes. These communities are close in, making commuting easy, while offering all the possibilities for lake recreation you’d find at more distant lakes.

Best of all, the homes around these suburban lakes don’t come at the high prices found at more famous lakes, making lake home ownership available to a wider range of home buyers. Some of the lakes and communities in the northeastern suburbs include:

  • Vadnais Lake, Vadnais Heights – While Vadnais Lake doesn’t offer boating or swimming, a small neighborhood on its shores provides opportunities to purchase a lakefront or lakeview home in a quiet community. From MLS listed condominium homes priced under $150,000 to beautiful, spacious homes in the mid six figures, this lake is worth looking into.
  • Gervais Lake, Little Canada – Just north of Highway 36, near I-35, is a small lake system, with Gervais Lake as its focus, located in the city of Little Canada. Offering boating, fishing, swimming, and more, it’s surrounded by lovely lake-front homes, with more homes in neighborhoods just off the lake. MLS listed homes on the shoreline range from just under $400,000 and up to the high six figures.
  • Lake Owasso, Roseville – Just to the west of Little Canada, Lake Owasso offers opportunities to own lakefront and near lake homes on a small, quiet lake that offers fishing, swimming and water sports without being overly busy or crowded. Lake-front homes range from the low to mid six figures, with occasional real bargains available at Northstar MN MLS.
  • Lake Johanna & Lake Josephine, Arden Hills – near Highway 51, north of Highway 36, the city of Arden hills is home to these two lovely lakes. Both offer the full range of lake activities. According to Northstar MN MLS, each lake offers a range of available homes, from just over $200,000 to over $1 million in price. Surrounding neighborhoods also offer buying opportunities near these popular lakes.
