Explore all Waterville MN lake homes for sale right here!
Looking for a town with a progressive atmosphere, a sense of community, and easy access to the Twin Cities? Look no further! Waterville MN has all that and more, including scenic beauty and world class fishing. It is located smack-dab in the middle of the Southern Minnesota just a few miles west of Fairibault, and is transected by a “rails-to-trails” bike path that connects Faribault to Mankato. The two notable bodies of water here are Lake Tetonka and Sakata. You can find some fine Waterville MN lakeshore property on either of them. Sometimes Waterville MN lake homes are available on Jefferson lake
Lake Tetonka Homes
Lake Tetonka is fully recreational 1,336 acre lake with a water clarity of 9 feet. About 548 acres of it is littoral, with much of the substrate comprised of sand. Although bullheads are abundant, the lake is home to good numbers of crappies and sunnies. Other game fish can be found here as well.
If you are trolling for houses, you might be interested to know that there are only 7 homes for sale on Late Tetonka at the time of this post. Sometimes twin homes with low association fees are available. The rest of this part of the Waterville MN lake home market is characterized by a variety of single family homes with a wide range of ages. Generally speaking, you can find something under 500K.
Lake Sakatah Homes
Lake Sakatah is actually comprised of two basins; Lower Sakatah is a 310 acre lake in the Rice County side, and Upper Sakatah is an 881 acre lake in LeSueur County. Again, black bullheads predominate here, as they do in most lakes in this part of the state. However, the panfish and a few other game species, including white bass, are lurking under the surface.
The Minnesota lake home market is tight, and Waterville MN lakeshore property is no exception. At the time of this post, the Northstar Regional MN MLS indicates that there are only two waterfront properties on Sakatah. When listings do pop up on this lake, you can sometimes grab one in the 200-400k price range.
