Lake House Collection: 5 Cozy Camps Across the U.S.
Pull up the canoe and relax into the views of these comfy lake house retreats from traditional to contemporary
I'm a sucker for a cozy lakefront camp: rough-hewn logs, lots of knotty pine, stone fireplaces and small, inviting bedrooms with twin beds covered in quilts. We've toured a lot of wonderful lake houses here on Houzz in a variety of styles; here are five enviable lake homes from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. While their looks differ dramatically, each one is inviting and has at least one rustic nostalgic lake house touch.
The family room and kitchen feel much larger than they are thanks to high ceilings and an open floor plan. A palette of rich woods from floor to ceiling and a stone fireplace give it a nostalgic family camp atmosphere.
Family lake camps are all about sleeping as many people as possible, and if I were lucky enough to be invited here, I'd call dibs on this cozy bed nook.
Vintage cabinets, a colorful chandelier and wood dining table and chairs give its cheerful dining room a casual traditional feel.
Knotty pine and circle quilts fill one of its bedrooms with snug lakehouse charm.
Calm, neutral hues do not distract from the views out the expansive windows.
Primitive twin beds, flour-sack-style shams, a primitive trunk nightstand and a lantern give this bedroom traditional lake style.
They desired a calm retreat, which resulted in a minimal yet comfortable contemporary design, inspired by the classic A-frame.
The white paint, glass mosaic tiles and light-colored hardwood floors maximize the way the light bounces around the space.
A spectacular cathedral ceiling makes this open-plan first floor feel vast, yet the use of wood beams and a wood ceiling gives a nod to traditional rustic lake houses.
