Bargains by the Water: 5 Lakefront Homes Priced Below $300K

Cheap Retreats: Lakefront Homes for Under $300,000

If you’ve ever dreamed about an affordable waterfront getaway, we have great news: Lakeside homes are available for way less than the nationwide median list price of $450,000.

In fact, we’ve found five such residences priced below $300,000.

Of course, these waterfront properties don’t exactly evoke the ritzy beaches of Malibu or Miami. But they do offer a laid-back pace and a welcome retreat from the rest of the world. Plus, you’ll be right on the water and have the ability to boat, swim, and fish to your heart’s content.

So what are you waiting for? Dive in!

5 Fish Lake Tract F, Ashland, OR

Price: $239,900
Outstanding in Oregon: How about a remote, two-story A-frame with a lovely loft on the shores of Fish Lake?

The one-bedroom cabin features an upgraded kitchen, living room, and loft bedroom. It’s also being offered fully furnished, so what you see in the listing photos is exactly what you’ll get. The property comes with a boat dock and has pristine views of the lake and of Mount McLoughlin.

One caveat? The purchase doesn’t include the land underneath the cabin. The lot is on a land lease with the Forest Service and costs $2,365 annually.

Ashland, OR

247 Lake Thomas Dr, Winter Haven, FL

Price: $289,999
Spacious in the South: It’s hard to imagine a three-bedroom, 1,670-square-foot home complete with an office and a studio for under $300,000 anywhere nowadays—let alone on a lakefront in Florida.

This pleasing property on Thomas Lake also comes with a large shed for storage and a sizable workshop. The community boat ramp for lake access is just down the road.

Of course, you might want to do a little work to make this house your own, but the furnishings shown in the listing photos are included as well—take ’em or leave ’em. There’s infinite potential here.

Winter Haven, FL

39640 Cross Point Ln, Pelican Rapids, MN

Price: $220,000
Beautiful barndominium: Nestled into a verdant hillside with a wooden staircase leading down to a private boat dock, this red and white home on Lake Lida is a sweet retreat. It’s ideal for a buyer who wants to get away from it all and not be bothered by the conventions of modern living.

The rustic one-bedroom cabin is situated on a steep wooded lot and has excellent views of Maplewood State Park. A buyer might want to freshen up the interior spaces, or just maintain the bare-bones fishing cabin vibes.

Although the home measures only 528 square feet, it features an extended, raised outdoor deck where you can easily grill and serve the fish you catch. That deck also offers awesome lake views to enjoy during the warm summer months.

Oh, those Ozarks: It’s an angler’s paradise on Newton Hollow Cove at the Lake of the Ozarks. And this two-bedroom home comes complete with a covered two-boat dock with boat lifts and a fish-cleaning station.

The residence features a wood-burning stove to keep you warm, plus a full kitchen, a screened-in porch, and a lovely deck overlooking the deep-water cove. There’s also a clever tram that goes from the garage down to the deck.

459 Rathburn Rd, Woodbury, VT

Verdant in Vermont: Renovated in 2015 and fully outfitted for year-round living, this two-bedroom home comes with a dock on Forest Lake.

The interior features a primary bedroom on the first floor, plus an upstairs sleeping loft. A Vermont Castings propane stove will keep everyone warm on cool lake evenings. There’s also the potential to finish part of the basement to use as storage, a game room, or an extra bedroom.

Private and secluded, the spearmint green cabin sits in the leafy Vermont woods but is just a short half-hour drive to Montpelier.
