No, this isn't one of those rent vs. buy scenarios. This rather lovely listing hit our inbox over the weekend and it turns out that the cottage (with its very own website) is both for rent and for sale. Built in 1900, the 855 sq. ft. Mermaid Boathouse is a designer-renovated residence that's been featured in a number of shelter magazines, including Coastal Living and Better Homes and Gardens (we imagine it's on countless Pinterest boards as well). The three bedroom, plus sleeping loft, overlooking Crystal Lake can sleep up to seven and rents for $5,000 a week in the summer. Want the turnkey property all to yourself? The listing hit the market in January for $1,800,000, but can now be purchased post-pricechop for $1,599,000.
