Taking a trip to a lake house is a treat during the summer and fall. Whether your family has a place by the water or you’re looking to rent a cabin for a romantic trip for you and your partner, it’s never a bad time to plan a weekend getaway to spend some time on the water. Since you’ll be spending your days chilling by the lake and taking the boat out on adventures, you’ll want to make sure you pack along some Instagram captions for lake house pics along with your fave swimsuits and sunnies.

There’s never a dull day at a lake house, whether you rent an Airbnb with your besties or spend a weekend at your family’s place, and that makes for plenty of photo opps. By day, you’ll be working on your tan, and at night, you’ll be roasting s'mores by the bonfire. If you really want to go all out, bring floaties for each person in your crew to lay on as you soak up the sun. If your lake house trip is just for you and your SO to spend some quality time together, you could plan to go stargazing while wrapped in some cozy blankets. The whole trip will be a whirlwind of fun, so when it comes time to document the best moments on Instagram, you’ll definitely want some lake captions on hand to help you sum up the vacation.

Each one of these 50 lake Instagram captions can be used for candid pics of you making dinner with your squad in the kitchen, selfies of you rocking your natural lake hair, or floating out on the water. Since you’ll be living that lazy lake life and doing whatever floats your boat, do knot stress at all when it comes time to post on the ‘Gram. Instead, just use any of these lake captions for Instagram to accompany your photo dump.
