About Sundown Lake

Hillside view of Lake Sundown in Moravia

Lakefront property in Iowa is a rarity, but when you visit Lake Sundown you will be impressed by the variety of land it has to offer. Whether you're looking for an investment property, a private get-away, or a permanent residence, this lake has something for everyone.

Located in Southeast Iowa, this pristine lake was built in the early 1970's but has recently been developed, offering a private, secluded location to build a dream house or to simply use for recreational purposes. Owners can take advantage of the lake for opportunities to fish, boat, swim, or enjoy water sports such as skiing and tubing. With over 400 acres of water, the lake is a water-lovers paradise.

The lake offers many choices when it comes to owning property. Buyers can choose from lakefront lots, large acreages, heavily wooded areas for hunting, or already developed lots with custom-built lake homes. Since it is a private development only owners and their guests will be allowed to use the lake and the surrounding land. The lake also offers a public beach, bathhouse, public docks, and common areas for picnics or other outdoor activities.

Whether you live on the lake or are just visiting there are other recreational and sight-seeing opportunities available in the surrounding areas. The towns of Moravia, Albia, and Centerville are just miles away. Lake Rathbun is also a short drive away where you can find places to camp or visit Honey Creek Resort which provides lodging, dining, and an indoor water park.

If you have always dreamed of owning a lakefront property or having somewhere to go for a quiet weekend, you'll want to check out Iowa's hidden jewel.
