Prairie Lake Estates

A resident-owned community

Welcome Home!

Prairie Lake Estates is a resident-owned manufactured home community in Kenosha, Wisc. Prairie Lake Estates Homeowners Cooperative is conveniently located just six miles from downtown Kenosha, and less than an hour to Milwaukee. Our ideal setting allows for easy access to Highways 158 and 50 and we can be at the gates of Simmons Island Park and Beach in 17 minutes. We are a friendly neighborhood for people who love outdoor activities and lots of amenities.

The town of Kenosha boasts the Kenosha Transit, which can take you all around the city to parks, museums, grocery stores, restaurants and various other locations. The Metra train is also conveniently located near Prairie Lake Estates and travels south to Chicago, a three- hour train ride away.

Prairie Lake Estates is owned by the Community Members who live here – we are a resident-owned community (ROC).

We own it

The Member homeowners of Prairie Lake Estates control the rent and make the rules. On July 15, 2013, the ROC purchased the land and infrastructure, such as the roads and water lines. Now, a democratically elected Board of Directors manages the business of running Prairie Lake Estates. Every Member household in the community has a say in who sits on the Board, how we spend our money, the annual budget, and whether we make changes to the rent.

We’re also part of a national network of nearly 300 ROCs just like us. That membership provides us with access to expert coaching on how to run our ROC, leadership development and training, communication with dozens of community leaders who face many of the same issues we do, and more. Life in Prairie Lake Estates is truly different than in a commercially owned community – we invite you to find out firsthand how that difference makes living here so much better.
