I built my lake house a few years ago. We love coming here to relax, swim, fish, and enjoy boating on the lake. Lake Catherine is one of the deepest lakes on the Chain O'Lakes. Very often you'll see beautiful swans coming to the pier for a snack, or a crane fishing at night. The wildlife here is very abundant.
My house has a large roofed wraparound porch to sit on a enjoy amazing sunsets. The flowers are many and blooms are constant. My garden boasts four varieties of hydrangea, blooming ornamental grasses, phlox, and many varieties of perennials and succulents, like Russian sage, thyme, lavender, mint, lilies, catmint, sedum, ligularia and many more.
