About Lake Linganore

Located just outside of Frederick, about a 15-minute drive from the city, Lake Linganore is a massive community spread across nearly 4,000 acres of land. With 14 villages already established and three more on the way, this community is a unique blend of natural beauty and carefully planned residential spaces. The original plans date back to 1968, and though approved then, the majority of homes were built from the 1990s onward, offering a diverse range of styles and options.

Why Lake Linganore?

Unlike many communities where location is the primary draw, Lake Linganore's charm lies in the community itself. It's not just a place to live; it's a resort-style community, a concept not common in Maryland, let alone Frederick County. Residents often describe it as coming home to a perpetual vacation, thanks to the unique lake house style homes, 209-acre Lake Linganore, and a whopping 850 acres of open space.


What sets Lake Linganore apart are its amenities. Picture a golf cart community with designated trails, tennis and basketball courts, a dog park, picnic areas, pavilions,

playgrounds, an indoor racquet club, a full disc golf course, and hiking trails around the lake. And did I mention the four pools conveniently spread throughout the community? Living here truly feels like having a vacation at your doorstep every day.

The Lakes

The centerpiece is Lake Linganore, a 50-foot deep, 13-mile shoreline lake that provides not just recreation but also supplies drinking water to Frederick City. With two sand beaches, boat ramps, and kayak areas, it's the perfect spot for relaxation and outdoor activities. The community also boasts three smaller lakes, each with its unique features, catering to different preferences.

Community Culture and Events

Residents here enjoy a vibrant community culture, strengthened by numerous events throughout the year. From Fourth of July fireworks to food truck Tuesdays, the sense of

With commercial shopping centers nearby, residents have easy access to essentials, and a 15-minute drive takes you to Frederick for additional conveniences.
