Lake Bluff

Lake Bluff is a rare gem. Set atop the string of North Shore communities, the village boasts a welcoming laid-back lifestyle, historic architecture, a thriving downtown and a priceless sense of community.

Each year, Lake Bluff hosts a number of special events – from art festivals and farmers’ markets to community barbeques, block parties and a Fourth of July Parade. Its annual Halloween event brings out hundreds of ghouls and goblins, while the Bluffinia concert series brings residents together on the Village Green for a wide range of live music. Residents also enjoy scenic parks, recreational activities, an assortment of small boutiques and restaurants, and a beautiful lakefront with limited development.

A variety of architectural styles keep Lake Bluff interesting with Tudor, Colonial, Victorian, bungalow and modern homes. Properties range from multi-million-dollar lakefront estates to condominiums and townhomes.

Lake Bluff schools include a number of well-respected public and private schools from kindergarten to post-graduate studies.

Residents find easy access to major interstates and U.S. Route 41, along with a Metra station that serves commuters going to Chicago.
