Where Are We?

Lake Summerset residents enjoy easy access to local communities. We are a short drive away from the region’s top notch medical facilities including Rockford, Beloit, Freeport, Monroe, UW Madison and the Middleton VA Hospital. Two award winning school districts share the school children of this area.  Durand School District was named the Highest Achieving School in Northern IL and Dakota School District boasts graduation and college acceptance rates above the state average.

The local communities of Dakota and Durand have friendly, small-town businesses including a full service grocer, a medical clinic, and restaurants that welcome Lake Summerset residents.  There is also easy access to shopping and entertainment in Rockford, Madison and Galena. Lake Summerset is a hassle-free 90-minute drive from the NW Suburbs of Chicago and is an hour south of Madison, Wisconsin.
