Painted ladies and a bottle of wine

Ever notice how towns near large bodies of water seem to be painted with a different palette than those further inland? I found this delightfully painted building just a couple of blocks in from Lake Huron, on the main drag of an equally delightfully busy tourist burg. This place is raucous kitsch in all its glory, and I wouldn't change a thing.

Your turn: Who lives here?
