We Combed Airbnb For The Best Summer Lake House Rentals

When it comes to the Airbnb lake house getaway, there’s something for everyone. You can embody the pinnacle of laziness (lounge on the dock, take a leisurely dip, or simply sit around a campfire), or you can get active (water skiing, hiking, and paddling around in kayaks or canoes). In other words, lake house days are ideal for all sorts of outdoor enjoyment — and with so many scattered across the country, that fun is never too far away. Plus, a cabin that’s accessible by car can be a safe and cost-effective way to get away from it all.
Ahead, we rounded up more than a few of Airbnb’s most unique lake houses around the US — from New York’s most verdant retreats to a peaceful cabin on the shores of the Caddo Lake wetlands in Texas just right for intimate escapes. Book your next retreat to one of these waterfront beauties. (Be warned — properties are getting up booked up faster than you can say “jet ski.”)
