LakePlace.com has teamed up with Cabin Life magazine to bring you some great articles and useful information about life at the lake. Pull up a chair. Put your feet up. Don't answer the phone. Imagine the sounds of traffic slowly yielding to the sounds surrounding the cabin. Waves splash gently against the dock and cicadas drone on in the lazy afternoon heat. A warm breeze sweeps through the towering pines. LakePlace.com and Cabin Life Magazine will take you there.
