Camouflaged Country House on Connecticut's Largest Lake

Location: New Milford, Conn.
Price: $575,000
The Skinny: Nestled in a stand of trees on the banks of Candlewood Lake, this stone house blends seamlessly with its surroundings, so much so that it's easily lost in the brush. Listed for $575K, the classic lakeside getaway was built in 1942 using "old world craftsmanship." Why isn't it older? Well, the lake itself has only been around since the 1920s, when a hydroelectric plant was built downstream. In fact, the houses that used to sit in the valley are still down in the depths somewhere, along with the roads and cars, though far too deep to snag a boat. The cove just out in front of this two-bed, two-bath escape is 80-feet deep and said to offer "some of the best fishing in the Northeast."
