The Skinny: Winner of a Design Merit Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1998, this lakefront manse combines classic cabin details—like Douglas Fir logs reclaimed from the Columbia River—with modern touches like a wall of glass, skylights at the peak of the roof, and a sleek, neutral kitchen. The 4,700-square-foot house is one of several on the Brockway Springs compound, a development that includes a tennis court and hot springs-fed swimming pool. An additional hot springs water line runs to each property (though according to the listing, this one is currently broken) and docking and mooring facilities are also available. Those services are covered by the monthly HOA dues, which total $460. The fee isn't exactly cheap, but considering this place boasts five bedrooms and five bedrooms and costs nearly $4.2M, it's not terribly surprising either.
