The small, private kettle lake east of Cambridge, has featured more than 50 homes since the tours began in 2005, said Donna O’Krafka of the Puslinch Lake Conservation Association.
Visitors are taken by pontoon boat to each of the homes (or they can drive) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with departures from the Old Marina Restaurant and at 28 Lakeside Drive on McCormick’s Point.
|Visitors to the Puslinch Lakeside Living Home Tour travel by pontoon boat between properties.|
Tickets are $25, with the money supporting the Lake Restoration Fund. myplca.com
