and a lifestyle you didn’t think was possible in Central Ohio


Here you’ll enjoy year round activities in a serene, natural setting. Solitude balanced with sociability. A feeling that while you’re living your life, you’re on vacation every day. Far from the usual. Yet closer than you’d expect.

Snug Harbor Home Sites now available
On the shore of Buckeye Lake presents a diverse collection of home sites for lakeside luxury homes, cottages, condos, and boathouses – within a harbor village that’s being masterplanned to offer the best of everything. Whether for your primary residence or a second home, this is where you belong.

Our vision is to create a new kind of community on Buckeye Lake. We believe that not everything should look the same, because that’s just not interesting enough. So our architectural standards encompass coastal architecture from around the world. Our luxury homes may remind you of places you’ve visited overseas. Our cottages were inspired by the well-kept charm of inland lake architecture. Boathouses evoke the East Coast, and condos suggest converted wharf buildings.

As a result, although everything is of first quality, it has character. Like a century-old resort town that changes subtly with each generation, Snug Harbor is moving into modern times with the confident grace and simplicity of a bygone era. Yet our vision also is to create an active place, energetic and comfortably casual. A social hub when you want it. A quiet escape when you need it.

An area ready to be discovered
The area offers distinct, just-being-discovered advantages – good schools and reasonable property taxes in a highly desirable lake setting, just 35 minutes from Columbus. And of course, there’s the natural beauty of Buckeye Lake, which we’re taking great pains to preserve and enhance. With a wetland preserve, a large, protected harbor, old-growth trees and vegetation, and of course, the ever-changing vista of water and sky.

For a century, this area has been Central Ohio’s best-kept residential secret for a select few. Now it’s being reinvented for a new era. There’s lots to see. And more to come. At Snug Harbor.

Snug Harbor is a true resort-style family retreat living community that draws on the best ideas found in the most beloved waterfront villages and towns from around the world. Snug Harbor homes are eclectic and range from luxury homes and lakeside cottages to condos to smaller homes and boathouses.


“I think the notion (is for) the Buckeye Lake region (to become) a wholesome, family-oriented destination for the state, or even the Midwest, where people would come for vacations of (long) weekends”. “That’s on top of its role as a community for full-time residents: retirees, families raising children, etc.”. “Many are looking for the lake’s future to be a 21st-century reflection of its glory days from the 1930’s to the 1950’s”.


“I tell people that there’s nothing more ‘Buckeye’ than Buckeye Lake. The 177 year-old lake’s best days are ahead. The overall story is one of great opportunity.”


“The development is coming at an important time given the central Ohio real estate market”. “There’s pent-up demand as the country continues its recovery from the recession, but overall inventory is at historic lows”. “Buckeye Lake is an area ripe for development”. “We’re looking at a number of people wanting to take advantage of Buckeye Lake being one of the few places in central Ohio where you can actually purchase waterfront property”.


“When I first saw Snug Harbor, it brought back memories of the years that I’ve spent on the water with my family, dating back to when I was a preteen. We think it will be fun to witness the transformation of our Ohio rural landscape to a coastal-style village. We’re excited to be part of this renewal of Buckeye Lake.”
