We visited Innsbrook last weekend and saw some of the lakes. It has become an incredibly expensive place to buy a house! But originally it was relatively inexpensive it you got in back in the 1970s.

Located out in Warren County, just to the south of what was then the relatively new I-70, Innsbrook, anglicized from the famous Austrian city of Innsbruck, offered a lake free of gas-powered motorboats and other noisy distractions.

Famous for their A-frame houses, supposedly inspired by Alpine dwellings (which I’ve never seen in my visit to the Alps), they were economical country retreats.

Larger luxury homes are now being built around the lake, and like smart developments, there are still plenty of sites to build on decades after its founding.
