Discover Lakeville MN

When you purchase one of our homes in Lakeville MN,  you get a fantastic home in a great community in a family friendly city. Lakeville has a lot going for it and is one of the many reasons people are increasingly choosing homes in our Summers Creek and Berres Ridge communities. Take a look at just a few of the local amenities that draw people to Lakeville.

Lakeville is approximately 20 miles south of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, along interstate Highway 35, making it easy to reach, but you’ll find plenty to do right here in town. The Applewood Orchard is particularly popular this time of year. With a picturesque setting and activities equally charming, this orchard offers so much more than just apples, although there are plenty to be picked to make your own pies and more. Applewood Orchard has plenty of delectables available to purchase, including the must-have apple cider, local honey, mini donuts, various baked goods, and of course, caramel apples. On top of that, you can purchase jams, jellies, and maple syrup. Top it all off with a pumpkin patch and an apple orchard where you can pick your own apples. They have more than 20 different varieties of apples available. Finish off your lovely and delicious day with a family hayride, a maze, playground, and pedal tractors for the kids. It’s an autumnal perfection!

Get the most out of the last days of summer with a visit to Casperson Park and Boat Launch. An ideal setting for a family picnic, they also have three shelters that can be rented, perfect for family parties and reunions. That’s just the start of the offerings, though. The park also offers a fishing pier, boat launch, grills, picnic areas and shelters, a playground, soccer field, walking trails, volleyball, restrooms, and parking, making it easy to spend a full day enjoying the outdoors.

Many people buying homes in Lakeville may be new to the area. One of the best ways to get to know the city and other parts of Minnesota is by taking the luxury, air-conditioned Gray Line motorcoach. They offer a range of entertaining tours around the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guides ensure you have a good time learning about local history, local attractions, and some of the Twin Cities’ oldest and most exclusive neighborhoods. The tours on offer are:

  • Black Hills and Badlands Tour
  • Fall Colors and Historic Duluth
  • Minneapolis and Mississippi River Tour
  • Stillwater and St. Croix River Tour
  • Taste Twin Cities Food and Drink Tour
  • Twin Cities Highlights Tour
  • Holiday Lights Tour

Finally, for golf enthusiasts, there’s the Crystal Lake Golf Club. Whether amateur or experienced, this golf club has something for everyone, though experienced golfers will certainly be happy with the challenges. The club has an 18-hole, par 71 course, offering four sets of tees, ranging from 4805 to 6303 in yardage. In addition, there are gently rolling hills and natural reclaimed Minnesota wetlands, along with pine trees, and seven beautiful ponds that offer tricky water hazards. There’s something to challenge every level of golfer. On top of it all, the Crystal Lake Golf Club is a first-class club that maintains high country club standards.

These are just a few of the elements that make Lakeville so appealing. If you’re considering purchasing one of the homes in Lakeville MN, contact us today and let us tell you more about Lakeville and the fantastic communities in which we built quality homes. You’ll be happy to call Lakeville home.
