This is what I remember second homes being like when I grew up, and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin was loaded with these treasures. This is in the covetd Hudson River Valley of upstate New York. Check out this manicured jewel that a friend put on the market about a week ago. It’s a perfect weekend getaway only two hours from New York City, five miles to Hudson’s famed Warren Street, with in-ground heated pool (a must in this climate, trust me) on five acres. Cathedral ceiling in spacious living area and brick walled fireplace with open kitchen has mid-century vibes. The home is fun for entertaining, and simple to maintain. Swim all summer, ski all winter — the slopes are 15 minutes away. There’s two bedrooms, one bath (who really needs more in a second home?), a garage, pool house, and out building.
Now who says vacation home ownership is not affordable?
