Step inside this Wisconsin lake house with serene and inviting interiors

contemporary kitchen

This inviting lake house was completely reimagined as a family summer retreat by O’Hara Interiors, located in Hayward, a city in northern Wisconsin. A few years ago, a newly retired couple had decided to tear down their old family cabin and usher in a new era of memories in a custom-built retreat that would be used for dining, entertaining, and plenty of lakeside fun.

With this family’s various needs and uses in mind, durable materials and heirloom furniture were carefully selected to add a personal touch to their lake home. The open floor plan allows conversation to flow as people cook, dine, and relax together. Continue below to see the rest of this inviting Wisconsin lake house tour…
