This summer lake front cottage is located on the southern tip of Raccoon Island, the only island in Lake Hopatcong with a ferry.  You simply drive your car onto the ferry and you’re easily transported from the mainland to the island.  This is one of the reasons why many people have been Raccoon Island homeowners for decades.  Having to travel to your home by ferry makes the island seem like a “vacation destination”, and it is.  The island is quiet and peaceful, and of course car traffic is minimal.  In fact, most people say that when you’re vacationing on Raccoon Island it doesn’t even seem like you’re in New Jersey.  In addition to such a wonderful setting, this island lake front has features that lake lovers have on their wish list.  Let's begin with the cottage.  It's a cute "lake style summer cottage" with three small bedrooms and one bathroom.  The living room features wall to wall to wall windows that seem to bring the magnificent views inside and the open floor plan is what most lake front buyers are looking for today.  The gravel driveway has enough space for six cars so you'll have plenty of space to invite your friends to come over.  What is most impressive is the setting.  The views are absolutely incredible.  They're panoramic and sweep from the south to the west and eventually to the north.  Whether you're inside, outside on the patio or on the dock the views are breathtaking.  The lake location is terrific too.  Two thirty six foot long docks provide docking for three boats, either power or sail.  The water is deep, measuring ten feet deep at the dock's end, making swimming here as good as it gets.  And finally, the sunsets across the water are breathtaking, and are sure to create many lasting memories.  So if owning a summer cottage located on an island less than one hour from New York City sounds intriguing you'll want to see this special property.  Call Chris Edwards to schedule an appointment.  Chris has been boating on Lake Hopatcong for more than fifty years and has sold almost two hundred and fifty lake front homes. You’ll be glad you did.
