Life for Lake Country Village residents includes the benefits of a quiet, rural setting near urban amenities. Located along Interstate 94 in western Waukesha County, city offerings like professional sporting events, cultural experiences, dining and professional opportunities are easily accessible to nearby Madison and Milwaukee. But residents don’t have to look further than their own community for unique shopping and dining experiences. There are a variety of stores located downtown and several shopping centers throughout Oconomowoc and Summit. There is also an assortment of restaurants with a diverse offering of menus to satisfy every craving.
Oconomowoc has been voted a top place to live, work and raise a family by several consumer research agencies. An excellent school district, ample employment opportunities, and top-notch health care all attribute to this.
Area residents like to say that, “life comes naturally here.” Nestled in the heart of lake country, Oconomowoc has natural beauty that shines year round. Outdoor recreational activities and state and community parks are literally at the doorstep residents, along with golf courses, and of course, fishing and boating on the many lakes this area is known for! There are plenty of things to do here during every season.
The area has a rich history dating back to the 1800s, when wealthy families from nearby Chicago, St. Louis and Milwaukee first discovered its beauty and built their summer homes to escape the busy, hot cities and relax by the lake. Many of these historic mansions dot the city and lake shores, adding to the old-world charm. A stroll along the tree-lined streets of Oconomowoc will seem like a trip back to the turn of the century. Downtown visitors pass by the beautiful band shell on the lake, Fieldstone train depot, and the recently restored City Hall on their way to the rustic boardwalk and gazebo.
The communities of Summit and Oconomowoc are well-planned and offer a growing, thriving atmosphere where residents can easily find opportunities to work and play.
