The Place: A 20-acre property with a beautifully maintained cottage and a 1,360-foot stretch of waterfront on Fairy Lake.

Bragging Rights: Traditional timber framing and huge stone fireplaces lend the cottage a rustic grandeur.

Big Selling Point: From the deck’s glass railings to the living room’s full wall of windows, the cottage was cleverly designed to maximize the views of the lake.

Possible Deal Breaker: The property lacks a boathouse so you’ll have to cart your vessels up to the garage when the winter freeze sets in.
