When the warm months start to arrive the only place you want to be is around water. These lakefront properties give you a sense of privacy and a secluded luxury experience, while having full access to a lake for both scenic views and adventurous memories.

Here are the best lakefront properties in the U.S., that also feel like an adult playground.

Lake Austin Spa Resort

This resort is an oasis  just outside of Austin, Texas. It doubles as a 25,000-foot luxury spa and wellness center. Before or after a relaxing spa treatment, join in one of the many activities such as lakeside yoga, meditation sessions, nature hikes, and stand-up paddleboarding on the lake.


Salish Lodge & Spa

It’s not quite a lake but this river and waterfall front property is one of Washington’s hidden gems. It has gone through major renovations, keeping the charm of a lake-house with modern touches like floor to ceiling windows, fireplaces, hot tubs in each suite and even balconies that face the waterfall.

Grand Hotel

Grand Hotel sits on Mackinac Island between Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. The hotel’s mission is for each visitor to find extreme solitude and enjoy the lake, so much so that the property is not open during the winter months.

Suttle Lodge

This cozy log lake-house with only eleven guest rooms, doubles as a boathouse. After a great nights rest, head to the attached boathouse to rent canoes, kayaks or even a boat to enjoy the lake.
