Some Ways to Relax and Unwind While at the Lake House

Whether you're spending the day chilling out on the dock or cozied up to the fire, there are plenty of ways to kick back and relax and unwind when you are up at the lake house.

Go for a swim. One of the best ways to cool off on a hot summer day is to take a dip in the lake. A swim in the lake is a refreshing and rejuvenating experience.  You can make it into a good cardio workout or find a spot in the shallows and sun yourself while staying cool.

Go fishing. If you're a fan of fishing, there's not much that beats wetting a line on a summer day in the Northwoods.  Some people enjoy the catching and some just enjoy throwing lures and not being stuck at the computer.  No matter what your level of expertise, fishing can be quite relaxing.

Take the boat out for a cruise. If you want to explore the lake, a boat is great way to do it. You can choose from a variety of boats, including pontoon boats, kayaks, and canoes.  It all depends on how much physical effort you want to put in. Spending a day on the boat is a great way to relax and unwind while at the lake house.

Have a picnic. Pack a picnic lunch and head out on the water for a relaxing day. Some lakes have public islands where you can spread out a blanket on the beach or you can set up a spot on the boat and float on the lake as you enjoy a leisurely meal in the sunshine.

Have a bonfire.  Sitting around a bonfire while looking at the lake is a great way to give yourself a reset from the stresses of life.  The smell of a fire contrasting the crisp, fresh air of Northern Wisconsin will make everyone forget about their real-life worries for a while.

Go for a hike. If you're feeling active, consider going for a hike around the lake. You'll get some exercise and enjoy the beautiful scenery at the same time.

No matter how you choose to relax and unwind on the lake you'll have a great time soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the great outdoors....and you will definitely forget about the stresses that come from living in the city.
