By the Lake

A house by the lake,

               or a houseboat on the lake?

When you have a house near the lake, your first instinct is to want to
get to the lake. With a houseboat you are already there!

When you have a house on the lake, you have to worry about security when your away. With a houseboat, marina personnel are concerned about your property, and take care of minor problems on their own, and notify you quickly if needed.

When you have a house on the lake, you cannot go tie up with friends in their houseboats in a secluded cove, and watch the sun melt into the lake, giving way to more stars than you ever imagined. With a houseboat, it's just the turn of an ignition key away!

When you have a house on the lake, you have to mow grass. When you
have a houseboat, you use your old mower for an anchor!

When you have a house on the lake, the view is always the same.
When you have a houseboat, the view rarely stays the same!

When you have a house by the lake, and it rains, your stuck inside.
When you have a houseboat, you can fish while it's raining!

When you have a house by the lake, it's quite a walk to go swimming.
When you have a houseboat, you simply go down the slide!

When you have a house on the lake, you can't move it if you have obnoxious neighbors. With a houseboat, you simply start your engine and move!

When you have a house by the lake, it's privacy you wanted, not loneliness. When you have a houseboat, you make some of the best friends of your life, who are always there to lend a hand.

When you have a house by the lake, your kids get bored. When you have a houseboat, your kids have many friends, and best of all, lots of adults, who watch out for them just like they were their own.

When you have a house by the lake, you're a spectator.
When you have a houseboat you're a participant!
