The barn restaurant

There is also a restaurant located in a barn that is owned by two crab brothers, who will steal anything they can get their hands on, including the weather vane on the Sugarman's lake house. It appears to be a short driving distance from the Sugarman summer house.

A short way from the barn is a gas station. After she broke down and got drunk, Honey made to her daughter Beatrice drive them home, which resulted in them crashing into a shed next to the gas station.

Beatrice also apparently carried this tradition of staying at the lake house. She stayed there with her son, BoJack, as she is pictured with him as a child and her husband, Butterscotch, sitting outside on the porch. The lake house, however, is depleted and has not been used in twenty-five years.

Season 4

In The Old Sugarman Place, BoJack runs away from L.A. and squats in his maternal grandparents' old summer home, a lake house in the woods.

Eddie, a dragonfly, lives next door to the lake house. He and his wife Lorraine were also married at the barn. He helps BoJack repair the house over a course of eight months. BoJack later decides, to have it demolished shortly afterward, as a means of getting rid of his past demons.
