There is something special about lake vacations: you can be as lazy as you want — lounge on the dock, take a leisurely dip, or simply sit in an inner tube and float around for hours — or you can get active — water skiing, hiking the perimeter of the lake, and paddling around in kayaks or canoes. In other words, lake days are ideal for all sorts of summer fun, and with so many lakes all across the country, that fun isn't far from you.
Ahead, we've rounded up 25 of the most amazing lake houses listed on Airbnb. Some can house large groups, making them perfect for a lengthy lake vacation with extended family, while others are smaller and more secluded, just right for a romantic weekend away. Check out the waterfront beauties ahead and book the ultimate summertime escape.
