Play pool, watch lake, smoke cigars

The Bungalow Lakehouse is about to make you as passionate about Sterling, Virginia as Keanu & Sandra were about each other in that movie, The Lake HouseSpeed. With 20,000sqft of prime, waterfront real estate and the former executive chef of Central, it's sort of got it all

Main Dining & Lounge: Full of Remington statues and vintage DC maps, the mahogany-heavy, walnut-trimmed main area is where you'd find your wealthy, fictitious uncle sipping cognac and cheating on your wealthy, fictitious aunt while dining on roasted lamb loin or a Berkshire pork chop w/ wild mushroom fricassee

Lake Bar: Let beautiful lake views wildly distract you while throwing darts or pretending to play billiards. High top tables and a massive 9 X 16ft projection screen make the playroom pretty football-friendly, as does a bar menu w/ a shaved ribeye steak & provolone cheese sandwich, flatbread pizzas, and a chili "nacho pile"

Cigar Lounge & Terrace: The covered terrace gets you right out on the lake, and connects via a garage door to a stogie lounge stocked with puffers from the likes of E.P. Carrillo & Macanudo, as well as 24 drafts like Blue Mountain Full Nelson and Lost Rhino Face Plant -- go below 50mph, and you may well remember the great times you had The Bungalo Lakehouse
