Lake House Plans

Our Lake House Plans can help you build that special summer place for you and your family to get away from it all - a special house overlooking the lake or coastal waterway. But the lake house as a weekend or vacation getaway is only one use of the contemporary cottage. The house plans from Southern Cottages are equally appropriate as a permanent residence. The smaller house plans are a perfect home for young married, empty nesters and retirees. The larger house plans provide ample space for a large family.

Mountain Cottage
The Mountain Cottage is a variation of the Island Cottage and  illustrates one of the many customizations of this versatile plan. In this example, the Mountain Cottage is built into the side of a hill which slopes down to a large lake providing wonderful views.
