10 Things I love about Four Lakes, Lisle

  1. The Condos
    Simple and efficient, the condominiums in Four Lakes are offered in studios, one, two and three bedroom models.  Many have nice upgrades, balconies, great views, and in-unit washers and dryers.

  2. The Ski Hill
    At the center of the Four Lakes complex is the Four Lake's Ski Hill. The user friendly ski hill has jumps, tow ropes, and snow makers. It is very popular to both skiiers and snowboarders.

  3. The BaseCamp
    At the bottom of the ski hill sits The BaseCamp, the famous watering hole of Four Lakes.  It provides a beach volleyball retreat in the summer and warms you up in the winter with it's large fireplace. With video games, a large central bar, and a seperate room for concerts, The Lodge is a great place to have a drink or meet with friends.

  4. The Location
    The city of Lisle is located very conveniently between Naperville and Downers Grove, just minutes from either downtown.  Lisle has a major train stop which is great for commuters, and has easy access to several major highways.

  5. The Prices
    There are homes available for both the first time buyer as well as those looking to downsize, priced from $55,000 to $190,000.

  6. Dog Friendly
    Do you have a dog?  No problem.  Four Lakes is a great place for a pet owner.  You will see many dogs and their owners traveling through Four Lakes' great trails throughout the year. You will also notice people and their dogs gathering on the ski hill for play and exercise. And just to make it extra dog friendly, "poop bags" are readily available on every corner.

  7. The Lakes
    What would Four Lakes be without the lakes?  Great for fishing, boating or just enjoying the views.

  8. The Ammenities
    Skiing, paddle boats, tennis, swimming pools and beach volleyball all come free for those living in Four Lakes.  The River Bend Golf Club is a lovely 9 hole course just down Four Lakes Drive.

  9. The rental properties
    Not ready to buy?  No problem.  Four Lakes is an active rental community. There are several condos for rent, as well as plenty of rentals at The Towers at Four Lakes.

  10. Nature
    Four Lakes is a community like no other.  Surrounded by hills, trees and lakes, it's not just a home, it's a destination...

You're not young???  Honestly, Ken, this is an excellent way to highlight a community.  (Nobody would think you HAVE to be young and single to qualify to live there.......right??) Anyway, I do like the summarization and I personally love Chicago and area - so much to do, so much to see...

Hi Cara.  Of course those of any age or marital status should check out Four Lakes.  Heck, even those working in the city!:)

Hi Cara.  I am 42 by the way...

I have changed the intro to this post to reflect your concern.

Ken--What a great way to promote an area!  I would have not had any idea that there was a ski slope anywhere near Chicago.  Amazing what we learn on AR.

Good luck with your open house this weekend.
