"There’s something nostalgic about lakeside cottages—memories of warm summer days spent by the lake, autumn getaways to see the spectacular fall foliage. Lakeside cottages are the de facto settings for big family gatherings, girlfriend getaways, and celebratory weekends. So shouldn’t a lake cottage be a place that draws people in, wraps them up, and invites them to stay a while?” From Southern Living ~ July 31, 2012
