Owning a lake cabin or home comes with it's own issues and concerns.
The biggest is septic. For years before the 1980s it was normal to run a pipe from the septic right into the lake fo the discharge of excess waster in the system.
As we now know very hard on the lake and that is being changed...
Issues with septic's are as follows...
Does it pass the compliance test?
If not, is ther room to upgrade or put in a NEW system.
I there is no room for a new system, is a holding tank a legal option.
What we find with most lots from the 30's to the 70's we made very small. 50' wide if that.
Many lots are hardly 100' deep. This leave little room.
So, before you purchase a lake property ask yourself...
What are you going to do with the property.
Is the property large enough for the home or cabin.
Will there be enough room for a septic system and will that system be unsightly or use up the space you plan to play on.
Don't go into this blind...
