At this house on Upper Eau Claire Lake, your own private beach begins the moment you step off your front porch.  You can’t see much of this front yard from the air, but those tall pines mean your beach will have a little shade on warm summer afternoons.  (Plus, the lake is only a few steps away if you need a quick dip to cool off even more.)  And the view of the lake from the house is still spectacular.  For more, just scroll on down.
