Ask the Minnesota Lakeshore Realtor: What is a Channel Shoreline?

What is a Channel Shoreline? Shorelines of lakes follow the geography of the land defined by the flow of water and water table. On many lakes there are inlets and channels that will lead to other bodies of water. In Minnesota, this can mean another lake, pond, wetland or marsh.

Owning property with shoreline along a channel can be an affordable option for home buyers who want an affordable option with access to a full recreational lake. Many large lakes will have channels or narrow extensions that lead to other lakes or ponds. Quite often channel shoreline is not the ideal, sand bottom, swimming beach but does allow a short dock or slip for a boat and access to the main lake. Many of these properties offer a view of homes on the opposite shore of the channel rather than a lakeshore sunset. But if the goal is affordable use of a full recreational lake, this is can be a great alternative.
