The lake house is a particular mutt. Part house, part shack and part camp, its lazy frame is typically clad in humble garments – close-at-hand wood and stone. Pomp and pride are left back in town – a good lake house has no point to prove, no lecture to make, no insistent demands – it only offers quiet interlude. From pioneer days to high-tech days, we Americans have always toiled hard. Every chance we get, we drag our weary bones to the water’s edge to drink rejuvenation. A tireless Ponce De Leon searched high and low for the legendary Fountain of Youth. Look around. It’s probably not far from your doorstep.

I wish we were spending the 4th in one of these beauties. There is something so calming about a house situated on the water. Thank you for lowering my blood pressure by simply reading your post. 🙂
Any possibility on letting us know the paint color? I’m trying to figure it out! About to paint our house!
