The City of Lee’s Summit:  A Mecca of Lake Home Communities! 11

Nowhere in Missouri or Kansas can you find so many lake communities in one city! Lee’s Summit is well-known for the selection of lake communities available to homeowners.  Consider all the options: Lake Winnebago, Raintree Lake, Lakewood, Lake Lotawana and Woodland Shores on Prairie Lake to name a few. Each lake community provides a select set of amenities which include a variety of lake-permitted activities, swimming pools, clubhouses, golf and even equestrian options.

The Renee Amey Team is expert in matching the desires and needs of the lake community buyer with the community that meets their specific needs. The recap below is a useful tool in comparing the different options and summarizing the amenities of each lake.

“We are ready with answers for potential buyers on the specific details for each lake spanning from questions on water depth, boat size, dock options, lot sizes, amenities, availability of clubhouses, community centers, swimming pools, golf courses and commutability to the metro area,” Amey says. “Nowhere else is the array of amenities as strong as those provided in these communities, so much so that we have highlighted their differences on our website,”



If you do not know about the best-kept secret in lake communities, then take a drive down 291 Highway south to Lake Winnebago. This quaint, custom community is home to 550 households and offers a wide array of amenities and water activities including skiing and wakeboarding. This community is in the midst of a lake expansion targeted to increase lake size to approximately 400-plus acres, which will open up more than 300 lots with new construction homes. Work is already underway clearing land behind the present dam which will make way for a new dam.


A very popular lake for families and lake activity enthusiasts, this lake offers options of water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, or just enjoying the views! This community has a larger population of nearly 2,100 households with a larger amount of land and homes surrounding the lake. This well-developed community offers plenty of green spaces, ponds, a clubhouse and a community pool. One listing of the Renee Amey Team, 5112 SW Surf Scooter St., was even televised on HGTV!


This well-developed lake community offers the widest array of amenities with options such as golfing, multiple swimming pools, playground/park areas in addition to lake activities including sailing, pontoon boating, fishing and swimming. All activities fall under a “no wake lake” rule. Lakewood is home to approximately 2,400 households as well and is located in a very commutable area off 470 Highway near I-70.
