I'm just back from a few days Up North and my visit got me wondering about how lakeshore values are faring now that we're more than five years into the real estate downturn.

So I'm curious, if you own a lake home or are shopping for one, what's your take on what's happening to the values of lakeshore and seasonal properties? Are you finding deals? Are you have trouble selling? Or do you own property on a lake that's being hard-hit by foreclosures?
