Lake Oswego waterfront living includes the sad realization that its time to put the boats away.  Winterization and storage and no more summer fun bobbing around on Oswego Lake.  The perk of the end of the season?  The Fall season is beautiful.  Autumn brings around rain, but also beautiful sunny crisp days filled with color and excitement for the upcoming holidays.

Active Village On The Lake Homes For Sale:  Currently there are two homes for sale in the Village On The Lake Neighborhood in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

Now that the tenants have moved out, I believe it may be going on the public MLS.   The other one of the Village On The Lake Homes for sale  is a two bedroom on View Lake Court that has been listed for about a month with an asking price of $1,295,000.  Both of these homes have great views of Oswego Lake and the neighborhood as a whole has one of the best Oswego Lake easements and marinas on the lake.
