4 Great Reasons to Live in Prior Lake, Minnesota

  • Fourteen lovely lakes! Within the city limits are no less than 14 lakes, and Upper and Lower Prior Lake are the biggest. Everything from boat, shore and ice fishing, to hiking, biking and swimming await. Sand Point Beach and Watzl's Point Beach are both on Prior Lake, offering swimming and sunning pleasures. Boat slips and canoe rentals are available. In the winter snowmobiling on the lakes is popular, just make sure the ice is thick enough.
  • Get in on the buyers market! The median sales price in late 2014 of $269,900 was down 9.4 percent from the same period the year before. That could indicate sellers are willing to look at more offers, and searching for rent to own houses could prove productive. Properties with boat docks abound on Lower and Upper Prior Lake, as well as Spring Lake. The Deerfield Park neighborhood features newer homes.
  • Unique food spots! Most of the eateries in town are spread along Highway 13, the divided roadway that heads north into Minneapolis. You will find chains and places that allow you to explore some local options that are outside the box. Artisan Coffee Bistro is more than just a great place to grab a cup. Bistro-style lunches and soups tempt the palate, as well as homemade baked goods. Edelweiss Bakery on Main Ave. is another fantastic place for great baked delights.
  • Lots of homes near great golfing! For fans of the game, there are many places to play, most of them featuring water. Try the greens at Wilds Golf Club, where they snake through nice homes with golf course views. A short distance away, Meadows at Mystic Lake invites you to go a few rounds on the course. The fairways are next to Mystic Casino, if you fancy a different style of gaming. Homes around this course are more rural and on larger lots. Legends Golf Club to the southeast features a few executive-style houses that front the greens.
