Forget the Shore. Lakefront property offers the same relaxation and waterfront views. Think: more cedar-lined closets and less boardwalk t-shirts. Doesn’t that sound nice? If you’re still on the fence, listing photos of this luxury lakefront cabin will convince you otherwise. It’s like a Thomas Kinkade painting that you actually might covet.

This Medford Lakes property includes a three-bedroom home as well as a separate carriage house with its own apartment. The log home includes original hardwood and brick flooring. And any log cabin worth its salt features a lodge room with walk-in stone fireplace. There is also a gourmet kitchen as well as a pub with its own wet bar. The master suite includes cedar closets, a private lakeview balcony and laundry room.

The carriage house apartment is situated over a two-car garage and includes a full bathroom and loft-style bedroom. Grounds include mature professional landscaping and a pair of rear patios.
