The Lake House owner, Darsi Lee, answered some questions about this destination business on Bridge Street:

Do you have employees? If so, share ways that you help make them feel valued. I am truly blessed with my employees. They are the backbone of our success.

What is one of your favorite customer testimonials your business has received? My favorite store in Charlevoix! They always have new and interesting items coming in. Their home décor and kitchenware selections are to die for, and their customer service is top notch!

Why did you choose to own a business in downtown Charlevoix? I was raised in Charlevoix. Charlevoix was lacking a good home and gift store. I wanted to try something new after doing Real Estate for ten years. It seemed like a good fit.
