The Lake House is a Christian intentional community in the Ybor Heights neighborhood of Tampa. We are here to learn how to live our lives based on what we value and believe. These values, when taken seriously, lead us to make changes to where we live, how we consume food, energy and other resources, and with whom we spend our time.

We are an eclectic group, so it's hard to nail down a description of us. One person would say that we're all about simplicity and sustainability, using as little as we can and growing as much as we can. Another person would say that we're all about the poor, hungry and outcast. Another would say that we're all about building strong, supportive relationships with each other. These and more are what we're all about, because we're all about learning how to live and love well.
