Mountain home land or lake front land - help!!!

last year

We have been looking to buy either land to build a cabin in the mountains or a lakefront cottage.

We just found both, but can afford only one. We can afford to only buy land now and will have to build the cabin over the next 3-5 years.

We are unable to make a decision on which is the better option. My spouse likes lakefront, I am leaning toward mountain land. We only have a day to make a decision.

It would be great if you could share your thoughts - pros, cons etc. This is our first vacation property and we are super nervous.
