Pennsylvania offers a surprising amount of shoreline and waterfront real estate for a landlocked state bordered by six other New England states. How might that be? To begin with, the state boasts 51 miles of coastline along Lake Erie. The rest of the state's impressive amount of shoreline comes from its 2,500 lakes!

 

The majority of Pennsylvania's lakes are man-made impoundments created for a variety of different economic reasons ranging from ice production in the late 1800s to hydroelectric power in the 1920s.

 

Only 50 of the state's lakes are naturally created glacial lakes which began to appear roughly 10,000 years ago near the end of the last glacial period as these massive ice blocks began to retreat. These lakes were formed as the ice glacier eroded into the land at the same time the ice melted, filling the hole in the earth with water, thus creating these beautiful freshwater lakes.

 

Scattered throughout Pennsylvania's 45,888 square miles of cities, mountains, and valleys, you will find a variety of different size and type of lakes, all of them beautiful in their own individual way. Whether you are looking for a massive lake that is bustling with excitement or want a smaller lake to escape into nature, Pennsylvania has a lake real estate for you.

 

Lake Erie and Lake Wallenpaupack are two of Pennsylvania's largest and most popular lake destinations. Both lakes boast miles of shoreline for both waterfront real estate lovers and sunbathers alike to enjoy. Both lakes provide year-long recreation for the whole family to enjoy. In the summertime, popular activities include swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, and camping. Winter months are perfect for ice fishing, snow skiing, snowboarding, and riding around the lakes on snow mobiles. Both lakes have several towns that hug their shorelines with shopping and restaurants to enjoy as well.

 

In addition to several large, busy, public lakes in Pennsylvania, there are many smaller, quiet private lake communities as well. Arrowhead Lakes in the Pocono Mountains is a private gated community surrounding two lakes: Main Arrowhead Lake and North Arrowhead Lake. This community is hidden away in the gorgeous northeastern mountain region of the state, yet remains only an hour and a half to two hours from Philadelphia, New York City, and New Jersey if you want to go to the city for the day.

 

No matter what type of lake real estate you are looking for, one of Pennsylvania's 2,500 reservoirs or lakes will fit your wants and needs. From the Great Lake Erie that stretches 6,261,500 acres to Lake Agmar which is only 22 acres, there is property to suite any lake lover in this state!
