All three bedrooms are en suite, with radiant heat flooring in each bathroom. The spacious primary bathroom has a steam shower, a gas fireplace and a soaking tub.
There is no garage. The fully-fenced rear deck feels closed in. Vibrant wallpaper in the entrance foyer and certain rooms may not appeal to everyone.
Burlington | 283 Chicagami Trail, Medford Lakes, N.J.
Lakefront Log Cabin
A four-bedroom, three-bath, lakefront log cabin built in 1936 that was expanded and updated in the 2000s, with a beamed cathedral ceiling, a two-story wood-burning stone fireplace, an updated kitchen, formal dining room, a family room, a primary bedroom with a loft and outdoor balcony and a one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse on 0.55 acres that back up to Upper Aetna Lake.

The wooded back yard includes a lap pool and hot tub, patio, dock and beach, and looks out across a broad expanse of lake, as do the banks of windows that line the back of the house and guest cottage.
The garage was foreshortened to accommodate the bathroom in the guest cottage, so it is not deep enough to park cars in and is used for storage instead.
Given the fast pace of the current market, some properties may no longer be available at the time of publication.
