Sweetwater Lake

The Cordry-Sweetwater Conservancy is located in the Northeast corner of colorful Brown County, Indiana, and consists of 2300 acres, including two private lakes. Sweetwater Lake is 3 ½ miles long with 379 acres and Cordry Lake is 2 ½ miles long with 259 acres. All property owners in the Conservancy have the use of both lakes as well as Sweetwater beach. Just a few short miles away is the quaint town of Nashville with unique shopping, art galleries, outdoor adventures and restaurants.

Both lakes have 125 foot dams and spillways to control water levels and potential flooding. The Conservancy is governed by a 7 member board elected annually by property owners. In addition, commissions have been established to assist the board with specific conservancy operations (i.e. security, ecology, and roads). Building and lake rules as well as covenants and restrictions are on file and septic systems are required and regulated under the jurisdiction of the Conservancy and Brown County Board of Health. The Conservancy owns and operates the water system and also maintains the roads within the Conservancy boundaries.

If you admire the rolling hills of Brown County and want a place to enjoy watersports, fishing or just floating in a cove, then you should contact Smythe & Co. Real Estate to consider purchasing a home on Cordry/Sweetwater Lakes. For more lake information, please visit this site.
