This is a photo of me and my family, taken at the end of our dock. My children have come to Deer Lake every summer of their lives, even when they lived in Vienna, Austria. Our house was not designed or furnished as a rental, but as a family house. However we don't get to the lake as often as we did when the children were young, so we began renting five years ago. My husband and I now live in Washington,D.C. Our children live in New York City, Charlottesville and Berkeley, but they still get to the lake every year.
