lake houseJune 6, 2020
About two years ago Mike and I (well really Mike – Sebastian was 4 months old so my mind was elsewhere) wanted to start looking for a lake house. Some place to escape to on the weekends or holidays. Somewhere to get away without having to go far far away. His dream/goal is to have one in Michigan one day and we can be snow birds.
Mike drives a lot as part of his job and so he had an idea of the area he wanted to look. Ultimately after seeing a handful of houses, we settled on this one. As our Airbnb states .. Lake Placid Home with a Beach.
This is the back view of the home. One of the best things about this place is the large backyard AND a beach. Basically perfect for BBQ’s, kids, or any kind of entertaining.
Our own private beach.
Combine the yard, beach and covered deck and its a family BBQ dream.
Couch / Rug / Pillows / Florida Sign
As a “floridian” there is nothing that makes me cringe more than seashell decor. I’m sorry to all the pastel seashell lovers out there … I just can’t do it. We went with a more nautical-ish, up north kinda lake vibe. Blue, White and Red of course.
Chairs / Light Fixture / Stools / Table & Benches – Custom by Hartman Wood Co
One of the bigger projects we’ve done there is this wood plank wall. Mike and my dad put it up in about a day!
The kitchen is a nice size, lots of storage. I would like to take those upper cabinets in the front down at some point to open it up a bit and maybe try the DIY Concrete Countertops
Rug / Bed / Similar Lamps / Fish
Master bedroom has a nice big window view of the lake, king size bed, closet and master bathroom.
Master bathroom also has a nice big window view of the lake, a shower, jacuzzi tub and access to the covered deck.
The guest bedroom has a queen bed and closet. Almost everything in this room was purchased at Home Goods
The third bedroom has two twin beds and a closet full of kids stuff.
The sun room is one of my favorite rooms, I still need to add a few more things in here. A side table for the futon, hang our mini basketball hoop, and maybe build a bench underneath those windows.
Its really turned out to be a great family get away for us, the kids love it and it feel enough like an escape from “real life” to get some recharged. If you are interested in renting it at all the link to our Airbnb listing is below.
