Why are people moving to the Lake Country Area in droves?  There are several reasons…The Lake Country Area which includes the charming communities of Pewaukee, Delafield, Hartland, Merton, Nashotah, Chenequa, Okauchee, Oconomowoc, Summit, Lac La Belle and more, have an abundance of beautiful lakes.  There are approximately 25 of them in this immediate area.  There are also many parks and recreational places where you can hike, bike, golf and camp.  Lake Country provides a peaceful atmosphere that seems to be a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Milwaukee and Chicago. That being said, it is still a relatively easy commute to Milwaukee or Madison.  At Stapleton Realty, we’ve recently worked with a large group of people who are moving out of Illinois to this area because of the high taxes in Illinois.  Also, we encounter many people who have family in both Milwaukee and Madison or jobs in both cities and Lake Country is the perfect location in between.  A third reason why people are moving to Lake Country is that there are many people who used to have to work in urban areas are now able to work from home because of the pandemic.  A lot of corporations have decided to allow their employees to permanently work from home. This group of people are choosing to live in smaller communities like those within Lake Country.  As a testament to the appeal of this area, the Stapleton Realty team knows a young woman who grew up here, left to live in NYC and after ten years would like to move back because she misses the charm of Oconomowoc.
