All of that is correct but, many lake front homes are not new and year round and are from the age of true cottages. They are owned by folks who love the lake area and have long been the backbone of taxes in the area. I have contested tax rates appraisals several times and the explanation is never as clear as I have seen in these posts.

The fact is they are much more likely to tax you on the frontage, the view and not the value of the place at all. Most of use with cottages are considered tear downs if the place is ever sold. We strive to maintain the lake life of old and value the area, the friends and the towns that surround the lake areas.
