Highland Lakes (Vernon, NJ)

My series on NJ vacation homes and posts pertaining to Highland Lakes have sparked a lot of interest. Many looking for a vacation getaway in Sussex County live far away.

All the pipes and the boiler had burst from freezing while the house sat abandoned. Multiple bids late...
