An Awesome Private Lake -- 160+/- Acres

"Water is the new oil"

- Jon Kohler

Most people don't own 160 acres of land, let alone a private lake that size! Sugar Lake spans one mile from end to end, with over four and a half miles of shoreline. Current members of the Arcadian Club make day trips to Sugar Lake with clients for the excellent fishing. It is stocked with bass, bream, and crappie. A state runner-up was caught out of the lake.

Broker's Comment:

"The vista from the clubhouse at Sugar Lake reminds me of the John Wayne movie where he stands on the porch, looks out over the valley, and proudly tells his friend he owns everything they can see. I smiled when I first looked out over this valley. I'd be much prouder saying the same but looking out over this valley with my own 160 acre lake."

"Sugar Lake is truly a spectacular lake. The opportunity to purchase a piece of property that includes a 160-acre lake could be a once in a lifetime opportunity."
