Lake Oswego Homes: Deeded Lake Easements

Lake Oswego Homes & Easements to Oswego Lake:

 

Oswego Lake is a private lake, but did you know that you don’t need to own a lake front home to enjoy it.  In Lake Oswego, over 3,000 non-waterfront homeowners can enjoy one or more of the 20 Oswego Lake deeded easements and essentially live the lake lifestyle without owning a home on the lake.

 

Oswego Lake easements offer families living in Lake Oswego recreational opportunities such as boating, swimming, and paddle boarding.  Each easement has its own unique amenities that may include a picnic area, playground equipment, gas barbeque, and/or water slide.  Some easement users have been known to “boat” to downtown Lake Oswego restaurants and the seasonal Lake Oswego Farmers’ Market.  Some “easements” organize annual socials and each easement has its own board and member fee structure.  Easements generally have canoe racks and a limited number of boat slips for which there may be a waiting list.  Once a family secures a boat slip, they are responsible for annual easement fees in addition to Lake Corp fees.

 

Families seeking to buy a home in Lake Oswego that possesses a deeded lake easement, should remember to include this feature in their “must have” list of criteria that they give to their real estate agent.  Your real estate agent can streamline your property search and by identifying the properties on the market with deeded easements in your price range.
