Ridge Rd. is the mile-long peninsula that juts out toward the center of Whitewater Lake and divides two-thirds of the Lake. There are approximately 100 lakefront properties on Ridge Rd. Homes on the east side have sunrise views and homes on the west side have sunset views. You will have waterfront views on each side. Being on top of the esker, the high elevation gives rise to some spectacular views. For some, this means steep stairways and paths to the lake. These homes on the hillside tend to have low-maintenance yards and primarily have wooded hillsides with ground cover or trees. Further down the peninsula, you will notice that the peninsula narrows. At one time the far part of Ridge Rd was an island and since has been connected. The narrower section is where the island connects to the peninsula.
