 Oswego Lake is a private lake and in order to be able to boat in it you must either live in a Lake Oswego waterfront home or live in a home with a lake/boat easement.

There are many different options for both choices. For Oswego Lake waterfront homes you can look at both the South and the North shore. There are also many canals and bays off of the main lake. There are two high schools in Lake Oswego so if a particular one is important to you than it is important to know where the Lake Oswego high school boundaries are.

Having an easement to Oswego Lake is a more affordable way to have good access to the lake. There are many different Lake Oswego neighborhood easements to choose to be a member of so again look at boundaries and also look at the individual easements themselves. They all differ from each other so choose a home in a neighborhood with an easement that suits you. Keep in mind they have limited boat slips and have different ways if allocating those to easement members so you may not get a slip right away or even soon.

You can see Lake Oswego waterfront homes for sale on our corporate site. We are also happy to show you out favorites and help you figure out what park of the lake is best for you.

Beautiful Oswego Lake….Labor Day Weekend Calm Before The Storm

Lake Oswego boatingLake Oswego Boating:  Took this shot off the boat last night on a quiet cruise without the kids.  Oswego Lake is a beautiful and peaceful place at night with only a few other souls out enjoying the calm. Should be the calm before the Labor Day weekend activity.  The weather in Lake Oswego this weekend is set to be boating perfect and ready for lots of last hurrah summer fun before school starts on Tuesday.

Lake Oswego living is closely knit to the lake itself and no wonder why.  Oregon is full of natural beauty, but this is my favorite place in the state.  If you are interested in Lake Oswego living, then let me know if you need help looking at different neighborhoods, etc.  If the lake is important to you like it is to me, then you need to find a home that is either on the water or in one of the easements.  Oswego Lake is a private lake.  It is not open to the public.  Not all homes in Lake Oswego offer the luxury of the use of the lake.  It is important to find Lake Oswego easement homes so that you can take advantage of the biggest asset of living here.
