What we Love about the Forest Lake area:


Forest Lake is a nice lake town located in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities, just 30 minutes north of the downtown areas. The schools are excellent, there are many churches, and the neighborhood is safe and very friendly. There are some nice lakes just minutes from our home, and beautiful parks and walking/biking trails to enjoy. Our home is located on a private pond with natural wildlife and gorgeous scenery facing west which gives us fabulous sunset views. Many families play on the pond during the winter months, and we canoe on the pond during the summer months. We are minutes from the freeway, and just 40 minutes to the airport which makes for easy commuting while experiencing a smaller community for your family. Forest Lake is a great city, and a wonderful place to live!


Great things about your town?


Forest Lake is a nice lake town, with a quaint downtown area. We love the community and feel the area has given our family a wonderful place to live. There are walking/biking trails, coffee shops, access to lakes, community social events, art performances, community education events for all ages, and easy access to the Twin Cities. The schools have high ratings and opportunities for the kids to experience which enriches their development.


What great things do you do in Forest Lake?


Our neighborhood is very friendly, quite social, and extremely safe. You will see many kids at the local park, as well as some empty nesters walking the neighborhood for their daily exercise. It is a quiet, inviting neighborhood for all ages. We have a neighborhood block party each summer, and many families get together for holiday parties and other seasonal parties. People come to our neighborhood for trick-or-treating because everyone is out and it is a welcoming environment. Our neighborhood is close to shopping, grocery stores, coffee shops and has easy access to the freeway.


Some of the Great Parks/Playgrounds Nearby:


Shawn Silvera Park, Beltz Park, Forest Lake school parks, Big Marine Park


Some Great restaurants nearby:


We love to eat at the local Italian restaurant called Za's, which is downtown by the lake. Just a short walk away is the quaint and delicious Italian chocolate store and the local hand-dipped ice cream shop. We also enjoy Don Julio's Mexican restaurant, The China Buffet, Applebee's, and Key's Family restaurant where everything is made from homemade in their own bakery and coffee shop. There are some fun pizza places and some other local restaurants in the area.



Wonderful Grocery Stores or near by shopping:

We have some of the major retailers such as Walmart, Target, Aldi, Maurices, Cub Foods and a few other smaller stores. Fitness is important to Forest Lake residents which you can enjoy the local Anytime Fitness, Snap Fitness, Kettlebell Academy, Forest Yoga, Karate, and soon a YMCA will be built near the library with many classes for all ages! Just north 15 minutes are the North Branch Tanger Outlet malls, and 20 minutes south is the Rosedale Shopping Center. The Mall of America is only 45 minutes away which has entertainment for all ages and fantastic shopping!


How do you feel about the Schools:


The Forest Lake schools have great teachers, and many opportunities for extracurricular events for kids at all ages. The community education programs include a top notch preschool program, ECFE program, Montessori school, charter schools and public schools. There is a local indoor pool which offers Red Cross swim lessons, and many events for adults and children. There are many sports options for students in the schools, and other programs such as student council, theater club, and music programs. The elementary school classroom sizes are low which ensures the kids get the attention they need. We love the schools in Forest Lake and our kids are getting an excellent education.


What did you do for interests and hobbies near to the property?


We enjoy walking to the park, visiting the local farmer's market, getting ice cream down by the lake, and ice skating on our private pond in the winter. We attend concerts and visit museums in the Twin Cities as well as water parks, shopping and cultural events and fairs. The lakes are another entertainment option for us, and they are just minutes from our home. Watching the kids at their sporting and music events are another highlight, where they have year round activities to keep them healthy and developing in their skills. We are also minutes away from outdoor activities such as camping, hunting and state parks within a short drive.


Additional property highlights, upgrades, recent updates that have been done.


We have recently invested in some property updates to include a new Master shower, new fireplace downstairs, new carpet, new basement bathroom, a new coated driveway and freshly painted throughout the home. Our home is very clean, and well-taken care of which you will notice when you visit our beautiful home. In the past 3 years, we have also put in a new refrigerator, new washer and new dryer. We have an in-ground sprinkler system, upgraded lighting, upgraded bathroom counters, granite bathroom counter and granite fireplace, sound system wired in the movie room, and extra tall ceilings in the basement. We have put in new architectural shingles in the last 7 years and our home has some exterior upgrades such as an all brick garage front. Our home has beautiful landscaping, fire pit landscaping, and one of the best lots in the neighborhood nestled on a pond with amazing views.


Key points about the house that you were drawn to when we first looked at the home:


When we purchased the home, we loved the lot being on a pond with no other homes across the pond. It is a protected wildlife area so there cannot be any additional homes built in the wooded area, which makes it very private and beautiful. We have a canoe we enjoy on the pond, and the neighbors ice skate and play hockey on the pond during the winter months. We see many deer, wild turkeys, birds, and other animals in the wooded area beyond the pond. The sunsets are fabulous and make it worthwhile to enjoy year round. The open floor plan in our home is very inviting and spacious. We have 3 bedrooms on one level, and 2 bathrooms on one level. Our basement is a great entertainment area with the built in speaker connections to play your favorite movies, with the gas fireplace keeping you warm. The basement bedroom also has built in shelving with French doors that can also be your home office. Our backyard is serene and peaceful as we enjoy fires on many evenings with our family and friends. You will love this location and our home will be a great investment for your family!
