More Lake House Beauty

Just a quick post for today, since I'm busy enjoying our long weekend!  :)  As a follow on to my Lake House post recently, here are a few more lake house settings that I think are tranquil and quite special!  Long weekends and a lake house just go hand in hand as the all-American experience in my mind.  See what you think:

My favorite style for a beach house - shingled with white trim - works equally well in a lakeside setting.

I love how this house is unassuming, yet welcoming, even in the most inclement weather.

Notice the hammock...

After a great dinner, a midnight swim!

This picture captures the feeling that a lake house brings, regardless of how the actual house looks.  Don't you think?

I hope your weekend is full of fun and relaxation!

Just wanna send you some love over the opposite side of the globe. Another beautiful collection of lake houses. Really love the first one and the picture with the hammock is just amazing. Would be great to spend some time there, reading, relaxing, dreaming ...
Enjoy your long weekend. I'll do the same here in Germany.

Soo pretty and restful, always dreamt of a lakehouse, a perfect refuge from lifes craziness. Something so restful and peaceful about them, like a place where time moves a little slower..I need that!

Hi Barbara, hope you're enjoying your weekend! I'll take the last photo. Water, close enough to put my toes in! Ahhh! Heavenly!

There is something about being near the water, isn't there? Calming. Soothing. Restful.

And, although we don't live on the water (though near), I do have a sweet pair of Andirondack chairs in my front yard that I was sitting in just today!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, Barbara!

lake houses are so magical, and i dream of having one someday (may be more achievable than a house on the ocean!).

smiles to you.

They are all so beautiful and tranquil but I adore the first one. The shingles are heavenly and I love the stone steps ending in the water. Just lovely...

I would love to be at one of those lake houses. Looks so relaxing.

I agree Barbara...there is nothing better than shingles and white trim, by the lake or sea! Beautiful images!
