Who says you can’t live on the lake full-time? This Yankee Lake house in the Catskills is a find no matter the season. 

Encompassing 400 acres in southern Sullivan County, Yankee Lake is known mainly as a summer community for those looking for water-related recreation and outdoorsy Catskills fun. However, this two-bedroom house provides a solid argument for living on the lake full time.

This tidy two-bed, two-bath Colonial-style farmhouse was originally built in the late 1920s but received a full renovation just recently, according to the listing. That renovation includes a custom kitchen with tile backsplash and stainless appliances, knotty-pine siding, and a double-sided living room fireplace.

And, what’s on the other side of that fireplace? Why, a spiffy sitting room/den, that’s what!

The two bedrooms are on the second floor, the larger of the two featuring cathedral ceilings.

In addition to a covered front porch, the exterior comes with a spacious back deck to suit your cookout needs.

The two-acre plot is situated back from the main road that circles Yankee Lake, giving the property some privacy and seclusion. Lake association membership fees apply, but having a non-motorized, private, spring-fed lake in across the road has its advantages. Find out more about Yankee Lake here.
