Lice?? Shadow lakes is full of bedbugs and lice. Just saying.

Better yet..... there are some nice places for sale on the KKK River for under $200k. Private property, right on the biggest river around here and can do what you want to, and tons of fish. No monthly or yearly fees either. That to me is the epitomy of nice retirement

Spent Sat night in Shadow lakes.First, sat around a camp fire had a nice night.Went on a golfcart ride all 3 homeowners said s.l. winter and summer are like day and night.Now to get to facts,WEEDS all 3 said you can,t go from one lake to the next without cleaning your prop 2 or 3 times.The pool is run wonderfull.the maint. is top of the line.the fishing is on a scale of 1 to 10 a 5 .Trout for the last 5 years have been put in the fall after the summer people have gone.The thing that pissed off the people was you have 2 groups trying to run the place homeowner and pac some thing.All and all they like the place it is nice but weeds stop sales.and fishing should be a lot better.That is my book report Miss Breadwood.

I'm with you. The only thing you get on this site is gossip, lies and people who don't have a clue. They really need to get a hobby. I have been in SL for 15 years and have no problem. Fishing is great, weeds are a part of nature and fish need them to survive. Areas to swim in are free of high weeds. Grandkids love to come and visit, always something to do. Activities tries really hard to host many events ascwell as the fishing club.

Do not buy anything in Shadow Lakes. The place has turned into a trailer trash park with roaming dogs and kids who steal anything they can get thier hands on. Years ago it was nice, but I would run as fast as I could from this place now. Take a ride through it.. it is getting trashier as the years go by. If you want to loose your investment buy in Shadow Lakes. If not, take your business elsewhere.
Do you live there? I doubt it. You are wrong in your description. Yes, some villages are nicer than others, but the prices reflect that. Shadow Lakes is a wonderful community with friendly people, great amenities, gorgeous trails, plenty of activities and excellent fishing. We've been owners for years and
are very happy here. The community outside Shadow Lakes is quaint and nice, and has everything you'd need. Don't dis our community!

I always have a great time at SL. I hope to be full time ASAP. Braidwood library is great! We get movies,books,magazines and they offer all kinds of classes for adults and children.
Wilmington has a wonderful antique & gift shop on the main street called Trinity Knot. A quilt shop with classes. A Ben Franklin store too! The north park is decorated for Christmas and all hand painted by the community. There are tons of things that you can enjoy in Wilmington and Braidwood. If you crabin about the area you are just a big crab.

One of the residents lets call him "Ron Molenaar" is a huge racist dick with ears. If this loser is typical of the people who live out there stay away. Got about the I.Q. of a rock and the morals of a devil.
