When you just want to get away from it all, when you want to escape the concrete jungles of urban America, where can you go? You could head into the woods, and isolate yourself from the hustle and bustle, with the only traffic noise you hear is that of birds flying to and fro. If you’re on the East or West Coast, you could find yourself at one of the many beaches America is blessed with. If you love it enough, you may want to buy a home on the shoreline. In Florida, California, and especially Hawaii, you could get such a home, and then find yourself locked into a mortgage from this life into the next.
Why Settle for the Major Coastlines?
Then again, you may want to think about building on a shoreline far from either coastline of the United States. You also don’t need to live way out on the Hawaiian Islands to find waterfront property. There is a wide variety of lakes and rivers spread throughout America, but Minnesota takes the crown for a sheer number of lakes. In fact, there are almost 12,000 lakes sized 10 acres or larger in “the land of 10,000 lakes,” and all of this water adds up to more available shoreline property than you could find in Hawaii, Florida or California. Unsurprisingly, in Minnesota such lake homes are considerably more affordable than elsewhere.
Even though you could build a modern style of home lakeside, there isn’t much sense in the construction of the same kind of house you have in the city. After all, you’re trying to get away from it all, right? You should want something different, and you deserve it. For this reason, you might want to check out the many lake cabins for sale in Minnesota. Log cabins can be more energy-efficient than your average modern home, with sturdy solid logs providing natural insulation from the cold outside while trapping heat inside. What’s more, these lake cabins for sale can be found in a variety of sizes and floor plans.
Many Types of Cabins to Choose From
Depending on your budget and needs, you can buy one of the turnkey lake cabins for sale, meaning you can move in right away. If you want to put your stamp on the log cabin, you can go for the shell option, in which the exterior is already finished while the interior awaits finish work. For the truly adventurous homebuilder, there is also the opportunity to go with a “logs only” plan. This means that you get the logs, log insulation and spikes provided, with anything else to be added or left out as you wish.
If you’re looking for a unique home-owning opportunity with a shoreline view, Minnesota’s lake cabins for sale are about as unique as it gets these days!
