What We Love: Adorning Skaneateles Lake, this cozy retreat provides the designer and his guests a fantastic place for summertime enjoyment. Plenty of outdoor activities during the day keeps occupants busy, while comfortable indoor spaces provides a relaxing environment when the sun goes down. The outdoor fire pit is the perfect spot for watching a sunset while enjoying warmth and ambiance. This lake house is downright dreamy!
