More Rain, Still Having Fun
The rain kept us indoors once again for a good part of the week, but that was alright with us! It gave us a chance to swing into the Lake Carroll Craft Show & Art Fair over the weekend, which was held at the Clubhouse. Many shoppers came out to see, and shop, at all of the local vendors on hand. As an added bonus, everyone was able to enjoy all of the goodies from the Lake Carroll Women’s Club Bake Sale Fundraiser!

An excellent lot for anyone who wants to join the Lake Carroll Community came on the market this week. This wooded 0.31 acre lot at 2-326 Eastcrest Court is close to the golf course and clubhouse. But even better than that, owning it gives you access to every recreational amenity: The 636 acre lake, 15 mile ATV/snowmobile trail system, indoor/outdoor pool complex, ski hill, campgrounds, tennis courts, equestrian center, and more! At just $1,000, this lot is a steal!
Another great property is offered in nearby Mount Carroll. This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home at 9925 Seven Hills Road features an amazing living room, with a wall of windows, vaulted ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace in natural stone. The windows look out on stunning countryside views, including 20 acres of property with a pond. Outside is a lovely deck to enjoy it from, a two car garage with extra storage, professional landscaping and many varieties of mature trees, including fruit trees. Inside you’ll find a dining room and gorgeous eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar. The master bedroom (with en suite bathroom) is a masterpiece, with walk-in shower, soaking jetted tub, double sink vanity, and walk-in closet.
This home is the perfect country retreat, and a bargain at just $599,000.
