If you find yourself yearning for lake life, you might be surprised to learn that you don’t have to be a multimillionaire to own a waterfront residence.

We plunged into nationwide listings and found five charming lake homes all priced below $1 million. These refreshing residences could all work as weekend getaways or year-round residences. Wake up to waterfront views every morning!

So fire up the outboard motor, and have a look at these five fabulous lake homes.

16265 Bucks Lake Rd, Bucks Lake, CA

Price: $799,000
Quintessential cabin: This two-bedroom cabin in Northern California spans four levels, including the finished attic space and the basement level.

Each of those levels offers a clear view of Bucks Lake in remote Plumas County. Located in a heavily wooded area and built in 1982, the 1,200-square-foot dwelling is cozy as can be. Most of the furniture is included in the sale price, and the home is weatherized, so a buyer can enjoy lake life year-round. There’s also a boat dock for aquatic activities.

Waterfront in Washington: This three-bedroom lake house with vaulted ceilings has remained in the same family since it was built in 1997. It offers the comforts of suburbia along with 136 feet of lake frontage.

Sitting on the shores of Washington’s Moses Lake, the residence is located right between Seattle and Spokane. It features a number of sliding glass doors, which means the water and dock are both extremely easy to access.

Peach on the beach: Loaded with curb—and lakefront—appeal, this 2.6-acre property boasts a sandy beach and a dock on Straight Lake.

Originally built in 1950, this five-bedroom cabin has been tastefully renovated. It offers up a warm and woodsy prairie style. High ceilings, a soaring stone fireplace, a charming loft, and a lovely kitchen with professional-grade appliances make this place ideal for family gatherings. A sprawling sun porch with lake views remains its most prominent, relaxing, and impressive asset.

Located appropriately in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, this lake home comes with a three-car garage big enough to hold cars, a boat, and a bunch of water toys.

The yard is dotted with giant oak trees, and the home has a pitched tin roof, stone floors, and a cozy brick fireplace.

The property includes a covered dock with boat slips and lifts, a porch swing, and a ladder for swimmers to ease their way into the tranquil waters.

Score! What’s better than a hole-in-one? A lake house with a putting green right on the water. But a chance to work on your short game isn’t all this three-bedroom cottage offers.

About an hour away from New York City, the home built in 1943 has been renovated to perfection.

Outside, there are decks, a yard, a bluestone patio, and a fire pit. There’s also a private boat dock, from which you can swim, water-ski, kayak, or fish.

This offering comes with a parcel across the street that features a two-car garage at ground level and a flexible space above—with a bar and kitchen.
