Lakeshore Magazine is a collaborative publication written by a group of individuals. For questions please contact editor@lakeshoremag.com.

The editors of Lakeshore Magazine may be compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and other topics, however we always give honest reviews of those topics or products. We only endorse products that we believe in and think our readers should know about. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Lakeshore Magazine will often feature images belonging to others. In each case we will identify the owner of the image with appropriate credit.  If, at any time, an image is unintentionally and incorrectly linked to its origin, please notify us at editor@lakeshoremag.com and we will correct the problem immediately.
