Nearby Gem of a Lake for fishing, swimming, relaxing

We are blessed with abundant water resources in Eastern Wisconsin including lakes created by glaciers that once covered the area. These lakes often have excellent water quality.

Some of the lakes in our vicinity are small enough that a person can experience some quiet moments with the water and nature without the noise of boat motors and personal watercraft. So, if the sight of the canoe hanging from our ceiling gives you the urge to get out on the water, here is an idea:

Erler Lake boasts the still new Leonard J. Yahr County Park which has very nice facilities including a small beach, modern restroom facilities and play equipment. The lake features a carry-in boat access which means that larger boats cannot launch there. This makes it perfect for the person or couple seeking a nice place to paddle a canoe or kayak. At just 37 acres, Erler Lake is usually calm in the evenings and is small enough that you can explore the whole lake without working yourself to exhaustion.

One of the great things about Erler Lake is the natural beauty you will find there. There are large areas of undisturbed shoreline with natural aquatic vegetation present in the shallows near the shoreline. This combination is excellent “edge” habitat for wildlife, which may show themselves while you quietly paddle by. If you can extend your time on the water until twilight, you can often see a spectacular sunset over the tree line on the western shore of the lake.

Quiet waters and a gorgeous sunset at Erler Lake make for the start of a great romantic evening, especially if you are staying at a romantic, luxurious Bed and Breakfast like Hidden Serenity. With our Kettle Moraine area lodging only a couple of miles from the lake, You can have a romantic getaway from start to finish.
