Do You Live on a Lake?

Growing up, I was a two-minute walk to a beautiful lake behind our home. While our house wasn't technically "on" the lake, it was certainly close enough to take advantage of all it had to offer, from canoeing to fishing to swimming. Are you a lucky lake property owner?Source: Flickr User jcookfisher

I had a very unique childhood. Grew up on a private lake in the middle of the desert.

Lake Ontario. I grew up right near the water overlooking steel mills. How lovely! LOL

I live about 2 miles from Lake Erie, but it isn't close enough for me!

My husband and I would love to retire on Lake Tahoe. But for right now our landlocked dwelling is fine.

I love that picture. I live two blocks away from Lake Michigan and I get to watch it throughout my commute to work in the morning.

My summer cabin is right on the lake, with a private dock. It's such a beautiful place to be and I long for it to be my permanent home. Due to the amount of snow the area receives in winter, this wouldn't be feasible without a snowmobile and some form of electricity (solar would be ideal) so in the meantime, I'm a valley dweller.

Not right now -- but when I was very young we lived right on Lake Michigan ... don't remember much of it, but we have old photos and it was beautiful !
