Because Cass County is only a 2-3 hour commute from several major metropolitan areas, and because it is home to over 100 navigatable lakes, many people make Cass County a vacation and weekend destination. Real estate values for seasonal cottages and year-round homes are still reasonable and provide all types of watersport activities throughout the year. <strong>HGTV</strong> recently featured lakefront properties for sale in Cass County on their <strong>”Waterfront Bargains”</strong> show.</
