Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve near San Diego offers seven lovely lakefront homes and three floating cabins to choose from.

If you're after a cabin on the water, you'll probably be happy to learn that they come with a large front porch, patio table, and chairs to sit and fish from your room or just relax and soak in all of the views.
