And you can find everything you need for that at the 6th annual Chicago Lake Home and Cabin Show.
It features dozens of exhibitors, cooking and animal demonstrations, furniture and much more, all for the lake home and cabin lifestyle. Among other things, you can meet "cabin critters."
Rob Mies, scientist, conservationist and one of the world's leading bat experts, brought a few examples of critters into the ABC7 studio.
