Every once in a while I come across a house I just love. The bar to making my love list (compared my my longer really, really like list) is very high. When I saw this house at Wolf Lake last week, I fell in love. It’s a non-lakefront cape with 2 bedrooms that’s beautifully decorated. The owner did just a fabulous job with color, and lots of cute little details. It just oozes curl up cozy. The only thing it needs is a fireplace or woodstove, but there are a couple of spots for a woodstove, and a fireplace is a possibility with some reconfiguring. The house isn’t lakefront, but it’s just a short walk to lake access.
Wolf Lake is one of my favorite lake communities. Wolf is a non-motorboat lake, just 80 miles from the GW Bridge. Wolf works really hard to maintain a rustic mountain lake getaway feel, something you don’t find at a lot of lakes. The community also owns 1,700 acres of land that homeowners can use for hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ATVing and hunting, so it’s like having your own private state park. And if that isn’t enough for you, the Wolf land adjoins state land. One caveat at Wolf is that they don’t permit owners to rent out their houses, so if you’re looking for a house you can occasionally rent out on AirBnB, you’re out of luck at Wolf.
The house is on the market at $284,500 and is being sold fully furnished. Click here to see the listing for the house (Listing courtesy of Keller Williams). Note: in the listing photos you’ll see a lake picture with an Adirondack chair. This house isn’t lakefront, and that’s not a view from the house, but rather from the lake access point a short walk from the house.
