Because many summer camps are located adjacent to a lake and have activities take place there, when I think of summer camp, I usually think of lakes. So today we are veering away from the traditional summer camp and instead looking at some lake houses. And I have to add here that the rooms in today’s post are among my all time favorite rooms. Seriously.
If you drive about an hour and a half south of Camp Tamakwa (the Canadian camp in the last post), you will come to a region of lakes known as Muskoka cottage country. Many of the lakefront homes here sale for well over a few million dollars.
In Port Charles, you will find a store with a group of designers who often have the pleasure of decorating and furnishing one of those million dollar homes. The store is Muskoka Living Interiors, and today’s rooms are all results of their work. I really like the light walls in them.
And you know I love all the red checks in this room (and the wicker).
Here is another lake front home with a beautiful boat house.
This is the street view.
Don’t you like all the wood in the ceiling and the walls here?
Most of the “cottages” seem to have names.
Here are a couple of rooms in Bellamere.
This living room with its blue buffalo checks is in a different home.
When I came across the photos of this boathouse, I was amazed!
I think this kitchen is in their main house, but I am not sure.
Now how about a peek in Muskoka Living Interior’s retail shop? I would have a very difficult time not buying everything!
They appear to carry a lot of home accessories.
If you will click on one of the shop photos above, you can see many more photographs from there.
Now if you are in the market for a home in that region of Ontario, here is one that is available…for a little under $5,000,000.
It’s decor seems to be planned with some of the designers from Muskoka Living Interiors.chestnutpark.com
If I had the money, this is one home I would take just as it is.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the work of Muskoka Living Interiors. If you haven’t entered the summer camp goodies giveaway, be sure to leave a comment on today’s post. (See details here.) It will enter you in the drawing for a set of skewers for marshmallow roasting,
Indian Summer movie,
and the following book that was written by one of the owners of Camp Wandawega:
Your comments about a dream wedding location in the last post were wonderful! All the way from tropical islands to mountaintops. So I will leave you with another question to talk about today. Living on a lake would be great fun in the summer…swimming, boating, floating on inner tubes. My question for you is…
What is your favorite place for summer activities?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
