Home Tour: Lakefront Living

If there’s anything we love as much as a place at the beach, it’s lakefront living!
In fact, when the fall comes around, we adore the idea of getting to watch the leaves fall over the water and bundling up in thick sweaters for a hot cup of coffee on the dock.
And cooking in this fabulous kitchen would be great all year long!
The thing we love most about the lake — as can be seen through this lovely view — is that it combines water and forest elements. What’s not to love?
This fun color palette combined with the rustic beams and ceiling is such a beautiful look.
Bunk rooms are THE BEST! This one practically guarantees fun with loads of friends, hoards of cousins, or a few, special brothers and sisters!
We bet this sneaky back ladder gets as much use as those great, built-in stairs!
From the front door to the bathroom, the combination of modern, updated convenience and rustic touches is pitch perfect.
This wall goes to show that great art doesn’t have to be hung in a certain, staid pattern. These animal heads add a bit of that mountain feel.
This is such a creative look when bedside space is at a premium. We love the shelves!
What an idyllic view! Dogs always know what’s what… Wishing you a dog’s life today!

    Love the lake! I grew up spending summers in a lake-front log cabin that my dad built. It wasn’t as cozy-chic as the photos you’ve pulled together here, but my happiest memories are from the time we spent there. I remember counting the knots in the wood ceiling to fall asleep at night. Thanks for bringing back that happy memory! XO

    I grew up in the coolest , old fashioned lake house in the summer! Lake Arrowhead in Southern California!

    We had a “party line” with one phone in the house! I LOVED it!

    My stepfather sold all of his stock two weeks before the “Depression” (he said…….”I knew it was coming! Everything was askew!”)

    He went to Lake Arrowhead (recently developed with houses by all the top architects……very chic great houses….Wallace Neff, Roland Coate, Reginald Johnson” and bought these houses for “nothing”! (500.00 or something.) He said many of them came will “Rollses” in the garage. The owners couldn’t buy the gas to drive them out!

    A long way to say I love “Lake houses”! Great post!
    thank you!!
