Memories of summers past inspired the cover story for our July/August issue (in homes and online next week), a whimsical quartet of cabins on Sebago Lake in Maine. The owner attended a girls’ camp on the lake as a child and she conceived a plan to replace an existing cluster of cabins in the woods with modern buildings that are just as charming, but, thanks to technology, more comfortable and flexible. We also visit a one-time artist’s cottage in Lyme, Connecticut, turned Asian-influenced guesthouse, a family’s custom-made summer haven in Rhode Island, and a wondrous vacation home on Block Island that looked to the site, and the expert eye of Boston architect Jeremiah Eck, to embrace the island vantage.
