Ever since we bought our first used boat in 1994, my wish was to own a lakefront home on Candlewood Lake complete with our own dock and a bevy of water toys. I learned my wish was never going to come true. I was so excited to land my first full-time job in radio that I wasn't paying attention to the cost of living in Connecticut compared to where we lived in Rochester, NY.

The next best thing, if you don't have the big bucks to purchase a house on the lake, is to live only five minutes from the boat slips at New Fairfield Town Park.

The following are the 'Top Five' least expensive lakefront homes for sale on Candlewood Lake in early 2024.
