Spring Harbor Neighborhood is in the West Side of Madison. It lays between the shores of Lake Mendota and University Avenue. This means there is an abundance lakefront properties as well as quick access to downtown Madison and more.
This neighborhood is one of the largest neighborhoods in Madison with almost 400 acres and 1,200 households. What makes this neighborhood unique is its seclusion from the hustle of city life. It has three natural draws, one being Lake Mendota, and the other two are Merrill Spring and Kettle Pond. From the shores of Lake Mendota you see the forested campus of University of Wisconsin Madison.
