20 tips for buying a lake home in NW Wisconsin – #18 Is a smaller lake right for you?

Most people prefer larger lakes; there’s more to see and more to explore.  But if you’re willing to settle for a smaller lake, the same home may also come with a smaller price tag.  What’s more, there are some real advantages to being on a smaller lake.

Chances are, it’s going to be quieter.  Lakes below a certain size just aren’t very interesting for jet skis and water skiers; they tend to see more pontoons, fishing boats, or canoes.

You’ll have fewer neighbors, and you’ll probably get to know them better.  Depending on the lake, fishing pressure may be lighter.  Fish may be both larger and less wary.
