Siren / Danbury Area real estate is considered a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and lake lots in Wisconsin.
The Siren/Danbury area boasts what all small-town communities across America do: close-knit community. One and a half hours from Minneapolis, Minnesota, this area is jam-packed with hundreds of lakes to choose from for your future lake home.
With a peaceful wilderness vibe and outdoor activities like fishing, boating, snowmobiling, hiking, and more, this area is the epitome of “Wisconsin North Woods.”
There is a great variety of properties to see in this serene part of Wisconsin, from high-end homes that exude luxury in every square foot to cozy lakeside cabins perfect for the solo traveler looking for a quiet place to put their feet up with a book and mug of hot coffee after a day on the water.
Some notable contenders for your next vacation spot include Clam Lake, Big Sand Lake, Clear Lake, and Crooked Lake. The lakes can accommodate all of your favorite water activities with clear blue waters, sand beaches, and numerous public boat landings.
Before European settlers migrated west of the Mississippi River, the land belonged to the Ojibwe Tribe, also known as the Chippewa, with evidence of their presence in the area dating back to 8,000 years ago. French fur traders and Jesuit missionaries first entered the area in the 1800s, and the Ojibwe allied themselves economically and politically with the French people and eventually to the United States.
After the fur trade began to decline in the area due to the increased population of European-Americans in the area, flour and saw mill became the main sources of employment and income for the area.
Today, the community relies on tourism for jobs and sources of income. In buying your lake home in this area, you are supporting the local economy with the time and money you spend on the community.
Other than the amazing lakes in the area and the vast network of hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and ATV trails, the Northwoods area offers wonderful community events and festivals, like the 4th of July celebration in Danbury, which attracts over 2,500 tourists every year.
If you want to test your luck, St. Croix Casino in Danbury offers luxury accommodation, incredible food, and fun for any and all adults.

For those who would like to have an escape from the city life of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Siren/Danbury area offers the natural beauty and incredible community for a home away from home on the lake.
