I’ll admit, I’m not one of the people who think of Columbus when I hear the words “waterfront home”.

But maybe I should be. There are some amazing waterfront properties near the capital city. From lakes to ponds to rivers, there are a few options if you’re looking for the perfect house with a view overlooking the water.

So grab your favorite floatation device, mix up a yummy drink and check out these stunning homes with waterfront views.
