Welcome to our page dedicated to lakefront homes for sale on the world-famous Winter Haven Chain of Lakes in Winter Haven, Florida. Winter Haven is a vibrant city located in the heart of Central Florida in Polk County. Known as the Water Ski Capital of the World, you will find the jewel of the city to be the series of canal-connected lakes known as "The Winter Haven Chain of Lakes".

With over 20 lakes, the Winter Haven Chain is one of the largest waterfront chain systems in terms of the number of lakes in the state of Florida. The Chain consists of two canal-connected chains - the Northern Chain and the Southern Chain. The Northern Chain includes 8 lakes that extend across three cities: Winter Haven, Lake Alfred, and Lake Hamilton, while the Southern Chain includes 15 lakes and is almost entirely located within the City of Winter Haven. 20 of these lakes are all very accessible through the maintained canals, with a few lakes on the far northern chain that are only accessible through a lock system.

Living on the Chain of Lakes provides residents with unparalleled access to a waterfront playground unlike any other in the state or arguably the country. Boaters enjoy ski-friendly waters, excellent fishing, and stunning natural scenery unique to Central Florida, including towering cypress trees, a varied bird population and native vegetation that splash the shoreline with a kaleidoscope of colors. In addition to the natural beauty, boaters also enjoy Legoland's pirate-themed ski show and dazzling holiday fireworks shows on Lake Eloise as well as several lakeside restaurants and bars located on Lake Shipp, Lake May and Lake Howard, providing excellent dining and entertainment options. From dawn until dusk, the Chain of Lakes offers an endless array of activities and hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Whether it's fishing at sunrise, paddleboarding in the afternoon, or enjoying a sunset picnic by the shore, there's always something new to experience and explore on the Chain.
