Nashotah Reviews

3 reviews
Nashotah is near I94 making it an easy commute to Milwaukee and Madison. Located in Waukesha County Lake Country outdoor recreation options are abundant and nearby, with several lakes in the area and a large County park with hiking, X-country skiing, picnic areas and two dog parks. The public school system is outstanding. Home values are fairly high, with a few upscale subdivisions. There is not a lot of affordable housing. The is no public transportation. The area is generally politically conservative. The oldest restaurant in the state is located here, The Red Circle Inn, established as the midway point between Milwaukee and Madison in the days of travel by horse and buggy. Crime is not a problem. It is a quiet area, with many shopping and dining options nearby.

I have lived in Nashotah since I was two years old. I consider this community my home and I wouldn't trade it for the world! Nashotah runs deep in my veins and will forever hold a place in my heart.
Great little town - nearby to shopping but still country feeling - access to many lakes. Has some very expensive areas as well as affordable living. Some areas secluded due to the price of real estate.
