Instead of sitting in traffic on the way to the beach this summer, avoid the wait and head to the woods for a different type of waterfront escape.

For those seeking log cabin living without having to rough it, 50 Sail Harbour Drive in New Fairfield, Connecticut, offers the best of both worlds. The Adirondack lake house sits on Candlewood Lake, which has become one of the area's up-and-coming waterfront destinations. The house has been built entirely of post and beam construction, and does not contain a single nail. From the listing's hilltop vantage point, owners and guests can enjoy panoramic waterfront views. Complete with an inground heated pool, entertaining deck and yard-side dockage, the house offers relaxing spring and summer living, boasts colorful foliage in the fall and is a short drive to the mountains when it snows.

Architectural buffs can own a piece of history at the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home at 542 Pound Ridge Road in Bedford, New York. Designed in Wright's iconic "Prairie School" style, the low-slung house sits on four acres, overlooking Westchester's tranquil Shannon Lake. The lake, which has a sand beach and contains a dock for swimming, boating and fishing, can be viewed from nearly every room. Inside, the house features banks of floor to ceiling windows, a large stone hearth and modern kitchen, all in an open floor plan.

Getting away from it all doesn't need to be difficult. Located minutes off the Taconic State Parkway, 1088 Barrett Circle in Carmel, New York, is a private, yet easily accessible retreat. The 3,500 sq. ft. house features a custom gourmet kitchen, soaring ceilings and a spa-like master bedroom and bath. Outside, a gentle path leads to the lake and sandy beach area, as well as a gazebo and patio at the water's edge. For golfers and tennis players, the house also provides membership to the historic Sedgewood Club.
