Summit Lake, Olympia Real Estate Listings and Homes For Sale
Summit Lake is a 522 acre lake just 10 miles West of Olympia, WA. This spring-fed lake has depths up to 90 feet and has some of the best fishing, swimming, and waterfront recreation in the Olympia area.
Summit Lake real estate ranges from moderate small lake cabins to many upscale waterfront homes. Homeowners in the Summit Lake area are often full-time residents, but many homes are also vacation and second-homes. Summit Lake is highly regarded by residents of the South Sound and some owners in the Seattle area travel to Summit Lake frequently, with the drive being just over an hour.
The lake is a fairly long, oblong shape with entrances at both the East and West end off Highway 8. Residents of Olympia travel to Summit Lake within 10 or 15 minutes and many spend every sunny weekend on the lake after a short commute.
While there is plenty of activity on the lake with tubing, waterskiing and personal watercraft on big holiday weekends, the lake is fairly quiet throughout most of the year, and a morning no-wake period is enforced to keep the lake calm and quiet fore the residents.
Summit Lake is a destination for Puget Sound area residents, and homeowners who buy here never regret it. It is a tranquil getaway from town and work, but just a short drive back to the city.
