Best Lake Movies

If you love lake life, it's likely that you're partial to movies that feature a lake setting because in certain aspects, it can sometimes make the plot more relatable. 

Here are our top six favorite movies that feature a lake setting: 

1) Meatballs 

Meatballs is a cult classic for a reason. In Murray's first starring role, he plays Tripper Harrison, the lead counselor of a mediocre camp. The plot centers around the antics of the camp counselors over the course of the summer, including a competition with a rival camp. The many laughs that you'll get from watching this move will be well worth your time. 

2) What About Bob

Are you surprised that Bill Murray stars in our top two picks? We're not. What About Bob? tells the story of a psychiatrist (Richard Dreyfuss) and his patient (Bill Murray). Murray's character, Bob Wiley, follows Dreyfuss' character, Leo Marvin, on his family vacation. Soon, Leo's family develops a liking for Bob and hilarity ensues as Leo fails to comprehend how this could ever happen. If you haven't seen the movie, it's a summer must!

3) The Great Outdoors 

This film was written and produced by John Hughes who also wrote several other excellent movies including: Sixteen Candles, Uncle Buck, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, etc. Therefore, if you haven't seen The Great Outdoors, you're guaranteed to like it if you've like his other movies. The movie stars John Candy and Dan Aykroyd as brother-in-laws. Aykroy's character, Roman, imposes on the family vacation of Candy's character, Chet. While all seems well in the beginning, family tensions soon surface. This amusing film has many memorable scenes including a water skiing lesson, the steak eating contest and a bear chase. 

4) Dirty Dancing

We'll bet that you know all of the words to at least one of the songs from this movie. Which one is it? "Hungry Eyes", "(I've Had) The Time of My Life", "She's Like the Wind", or "Be My Baby"? Dirty Dancing is a classic story of a nice girl that meets a boy from the wrong side of the tracks. It stands out as one of the more memorable versions of this storyline for the film's music and of course, lake setting! One of the movie's most memorial scenes is when characters Baby and Johnny practice a dance lift in the lake. This film never gets old and has inspired everything from parodies by the Muppets, to choreographed dances at weddings.  

5) On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond stars Hollywood legends Kathryn Hepburn, Henry Fonda and his real-life daughter, Jane Fonda. The film tells the story of an elderly couple that spends their summers at their lakefront vacation home in New England and their relationships with their daughter and grandson. The film was the second highest grossing movie of the year, for the year it was released, and was nominated for ten Oscars. Henry Fonda and Kathryn Hepburn won Best Actor awards for their roles. 

6)  Indian Summer 

This film features an all star cast and tells the story eight adults that return to their old camp at the request of their former camp counselor, played by Alan Arkin. As the campers reconnect, unresolved past issues resurface. This forces some of the campers to come to terms with the past. The all star cast includes Diane Lane, Bill Paxton and Elizabeth Perkins.

    Build Your Dream Home On This Land!

    If you could build your dream home, what would it look like? What architectural style would it be? What materials would you use to build it? How many rooms would it have? How many floors? What would the color of your front door be? Building a home from the ground up can be perceived as a challenge for some. For others however, it's an amazing opportunity to be creative and build a home that is personalized to their liking and needs.

    In addition to creative freedom, there are other benefits of building your own home:

    You Are the First Owner

    There's nothing like the look and smell of something that's brand new. Building your own home allows you to be first person to walk its floors, step on its stairs, paint its walls and create memories in its rooms. 

    Everything is New 

    You won't have to worry about old electrical wiring, an aging water heater, old foundation issues, bad plumbing or a leaking roof. Every aspect of your new home is brand new. Therefore, you won't have to worry about any repair costs for quite sometime! 

    Customization

    Have you always wanted a library in the den? Perhaps you've always wanted a customized staircase? Maybe an indoor rock climbing course in your living room? The possibilities are truly endless. Besides knowing that only your home has certain features, customizations are also wonderful because they can be a great selling point if you ever choose to move.

    Energy Efficient 

    You can use energy efficient materials when building a home that can save you money in some instances, offer tax credits. Popular energy efficient materials include recycled steel, spray foam insulation and insulating concrete forms. HVAC systems are also a great energy efficient feature to add to any home. The best part is that you won't have to move heavy air conditions every year and find storage for them in the winter.
