Thinking of Buying In Highland Lakes

Welcome Newbie, Please take most of the comments you read here with a grain O'salt, I don't believe that they are all residents of our community. I've lived in Highland Lakes year round for over 25 years and I will never leave. I raised my kids here and they are now mature & successful adults as are most of their friends. We've met & continue to meet many wonderful people here. I often speak to co-worker who ask me about our town & I love to brag how strangers wave to you when walking around the lake. Swimming...If you are familiar with lake swimming, Highland lakes are generally shallow and if it's a warm summer, there will be algae & weeds later in the year. The club does a decent job keeping that to a minimum and in general the swimming conditions are good to excellant. Commute...I have commuted RT23 all 25 years that I've been here & I find it to be not a problem once you become experienced with it. It's better to get out early, before 7am and/or leave after 8:30 if your hours are flexible. If not and you must travel during the rush, expect on average a 35 minute ride to Rt 287. Fishing...I'm not a member of the clubs, but I know members that are & they enjoy their time. There are no trout due to warmer water temps as previously mentioned, but there are healthy populations of several Bass species as well as Walleye, Muskie, Cats & several types of panfish. As with most rural lake communities, I suggest before you buy to knock on your potential neighbors doors and introduce yourself. You'll get an immediate idea of what to expect and I think you may be pleasantly surprised.  (Jan 27, 2011 | post #11)
