if it gets a little chilly on the lake in the evnings, maybe a blanket or afghan would be nice.  You could do a quick double crochet lap afghan in no time, or at least time enough to get it done by next Sunday.

You could also do some kind of collage and frame it.  Use pictures of fish and nature and water scenes.

How about a Welcome to Our Cabin wall hanging?

a set of woven coasters

handpaint some glasses or mugs or a platter

decorate the cover of a journal so that visitors can record memories of their visits (I actually like this idea.  I did this for a friend who let us rent his beach condo once)
