The Snug Harbor Experience


A vision of a life well lived…..

Our vision is to create a new kind of community on Buckeye Lake.  We believe that not everything should look the same, because that’s just not interesting enough.  So our architectural standards encompass coastal architecture from around the world.  Our homes may remind you of places you’ve visited overseas. Cottages were inspired by the well-kept charm of inland lake architecture.  Boathouses evoke the East Coast, and condos suggest converted wharf buildings.

As a result, the finished product with all it’s nuances is of the finest quality which evokes a sense of  character of days past.  Like a century-old resort town that changes subtly with each generation, Snug Harbor is moving into modern times with the confident grace and simplicity of a bygone era.  Yet our vision also is to create an active place, energetic and comfortably casual.  A social hub when you want it.  A quiet escape when you need it.


An area ready to be discovered…..

The area offers distinct, just-being-discovered advantages—good schools and reasonable property taxes in a highly desirable lake setting, just 35 minutes from Columbus.  And of course, there’s the natural beauty of the Buckeye Lake, which we’re taking great pains to preserve and enhance, with a wetland preserve, a large protected harbor, old-growth trees and vegetation, and of course, the ever-changing vista of water and sky.

For a century, this area has been Central Ohio’s best-kept residential secret for a select few.  Now, it’s being reinvented for a new era.  There’s lots to see, and more to come at Snug Harbor!

Snug Harbor will have districts and while each of these districts will have its own individual character and identity, all of the architecture in the community will have continuity through open space linkages, greenbelts, landscape furnishings and signage.


Vacation Every Day…..

For generations, people have come to Buckeye Lake to get back in touch with themselves.  To enjoy life’s little luxuries.  To lead a simpler life, and to share the good things.  Here at Snug Harbor, people enjoy every day the things they’ve always loved “by the lake”.  Here, we celebrate the things that have always been important.  A beautiful place to call your own—that doesn’t look like everyone else.  A village where people may know your name, but can’t always predict what will happen next.  Having more activities that you can possibly do in a long summer’s day.  Yet taking the time to enjoy whatever life brings.  A dock cleat is the perfect symbol: you can stay safely at harbor, or you can cut loose at any time.  In fact, symbols of the good life are everywhere in Snug Harbor.  A comfortable Adirondack chair.  A tippy canoe.  A yacht club to boat to, at a pace that you set.  A boardwalk for people watching, or following the boats that enter the harbor.  This is a place for families to gather-in a setting worthy of the photo album.  There are sociable neighbors to talk to if you want to sit a bit.  A sense of privacy and relaxation-just you and the lake-when you’re home.  We believe in that feeling you feel when you “get away from it all”.  This is life the way it should be.  Having it all, and keeping it simple.  This is Snug Harbor.  The vacation you can come back to everyday!


The Wharf District……

The Wharf at Snug Harbor will resemble the 250 year old picturesque fishing village Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, where the hue of one’s house reflects the vitality of one’s spirit, and the weathered grey shingle cottages of the historic wharfs in Nantucket harbor.


The North Shore District……

The North Shore District will be a cottage community offering family retreats and primary cottage homes.  The architectural style will be eclectic and be on the waterfront.  These homes will range from 1,400-2,300 square feet.
