NJ Lake house rentals in North Jersey
Life on the lake – it’s one thing in New Jersey.
Just as the oceanfront coastal region attracts dedicated visitors every year, the counties of Sussex, Passaic and Morris have their own coastlines dear to those who live there or plan a seasonal vacation.
Garden State traditions and memories from generation to generation include fishing and boating, and more recently, paddle boarding.
Here’s a look at a dozen lakefront rentals in North Jersey, many along Hopatcong Lake or Upper Greenwood Lake.
