As someone who sells a lot of waterfront properties here in Northwest Wisconsin, I’ve noticed that buyers shopping for a lake home or cabin will often have one very specific request. They want level, sandy frontage—or at least a sandy bottom that’s good for swimming.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with a gravel bottom, or even a muck bottom. That sort of shoreline might be better for fishing, and it’s also more inviting for waterfowl and other wildlife. Still, it’s not surprising that I get a lot of requests for up-north lake homes and cabins with a sandy, gently sloping waterfront. This year I’ve already sold several of these lakeshore properties. Fortunately, I have more available right now.

Because lake homes and cabins with a sandy shoreline are especially sought-after, these listings almost always include a photo showing the actual sand bottom. (Other Realtors do this, too; I’m pretty sure I’m not giving away any trade secrets here.) No matter how beautiful the home itself, no matter how magnificent the view, and no matter how photogenic the custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and stone fireplace, I still try and squeeze in “The Obligatory Sandy Bottom Shot.”

Although you should probably consider other criteria, too, sometimes it’s nice to see photographic evidence that a particular lake home or cabin really does have a shoreline with a sandy bottom. So here, for your viewing enjoyment, is a splendid collection of sandy bottom shots.

A few of these lake homes and cabins are already sold—including the delightful 2 BR chalet on Leader Lake that’s only steps away from the sand shoreline at the top of this post. But if you’d like to learn more about my “sandy bottom” lake homes and cabins that are still available, visit my Edina Realty website. If you like what you see, give me a call.

(And if you’d prefer a rock and gravel bottom for better front-yard walleye fishing, or a sand and muck bottom for more bluegills, bass, and water lilies, give me a call. I can definitely help you find a lake home or cabin with that sort of shoreline, too.)
