On the south side of the lake there is one street (Park) that has newer brick homes on it and can access the lake via a canal.  Though some of the newer brick colonials sit right on the lake.

There are ranches, colonials, contemporary.  Many of the small ranches right on the water have no basements, but the newer homes have walkout basements.  The early homes are aluminum and vinyl sided but you will find some beautiful brick colonial homes.


School Lake General info

School Lake is just a round lake and doesn’t have much boat traffic on it.  Of course on the weekends it is a little busier.  Most of the shoreline is homes though there are a few spots that are natural with cattails and water lilies.  School Lake is connected to Hope Lake which lies on the other side of Old 23.  The lake levels are balanced by both spring fed lake levels.   It is a great little lake for people who love the water but don’t want the noise and traffic of one of the big lakes.

There are two different subdivision associations on the lake.

My quote of the day is:

There is no reason to go to India for peace.  Or to take up Yoga or take relaxation classes.  Spend a day on a lake watching the wildlife and you will find your peace.

Positive, Patient, Persistent!
