Being by water is good for the body and mind and is associated with many positive measures of physical and mental wellbeing, from higher levels of vitamin D to better social relations. It's so important, in fact, that proximity to water is being studied by BlueSpace, a research initiative that looked for links between water, climate, and health.

Excavating the last cove on the South Lake to create better water views and access.

At Splinter Creek, we live by the code of water, with three lakes and waterfront homesites on our 650 acres. Water is so crucial to our community that our latest improvement project has been expanding one of our lakes. Early next spring, our South Lake will be close to 5 acres larger and deeper. The expanded lake footprint will create more shoreline for additional homesites and will offer more space for water activities, such as canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming, boating, and fishing.
