Hosting Essentials: Happy Hour

The August long weekend is nearly here, and it's sure to be one of the busiest social events of cabin season. No matter if you're in a cozy summer shack or a sprawling four season refuge, making sure your cabin is equipped for happy hour is one of the quickest ways to become the most popular neighbor on Lake of the Woods.

Not everyone has the opportunity or commitment to build a bar onto a sloping rock face however, and for those prospective builders, a wet bar off of your main cottage space is the perfect way to entertain your guests. In the above example, the bar offers easy access to wine, beer and spirits and is conveniently only steps between the kitchen and patio.

When the sun sets, however, the basement lounge offers something for you and your guests on more special occasions- a hidden scotch bar built right into the wall.
