Lake house gazing

When it starts to get hot (as it certainly has these past few days), we in the Midwest pack up on the weekends and head to the nearest lake for a little waterfront relief.

Vera Bradley Co-founder Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, who is known for her impeccable interior design talents, was kind enough to invite us in for a tour of two of her breath-taking homes on Lake Gage in Angola, Indiana.

She purchased the Green Gables property in 2005 and The Getaway in 2007. Both cottages were remodeled by Len Mysliwiec in accordance with Barbara’s signature style: casual, bright and cheery. The space is the perfect spot for the whole family to get together and have fun, relax and enjoy.

The setting certainly ignites our aspirations for lakefront bliss.
