Continuity mistake: When Bullock is warning Reeves of the coming winter blizzard, she is looking through pictures that depicted her and her friends enjoying the snow. She then turns to the dog and asks "Remember that day? You were not happy". However it's revealed that both characters have the same dog, given to Bullock's boyfriend by Reeves, so when the snow happened in Reeves' time - 2004 - the dog was with him.
Other mistake: Every time somebody climbs to the attic in the "lake house", you see a small, dark, enclosed chamber with some abandoned stuff. However, as soon as you see the "lake house" from the outside, it is a single-level construction entirely made of glass, with no inside staircase or ladder, and three smaller glasshouses on the roof. There is not a single wooden panel to enclose the attic, nor any construction in the house that looks like it could be that attic.
Girl Patient: My mom's last boyfriend was bald. He was nice, but she didn't marry him.
Girl Patient: There's always something better coming around the corner. That's what she says.
Kate: If she's not careful, she can spend her whole life waiting.
Alex: He could build a house. But he couldn't build a home.
Kate: One man I can never meet. Him, I would like to give my whole heart to.
Question: Why did Alex have to wait until Valentine's Day 2008 to meet Kate? Even assuming for the sake of argument that the "time-traveling" letters stopped after Alex avoided the bus accident on "his" Valentine's Day 2006, Alex certainly knew how to find Kate at that time - and vice versa. The two-year gap where Kate had not known about Alex had closed by that time, and each knew about the other.
Question: Why would Alex put a letter in that mailbox? Did he know this lady was going to show up?
Question: Where is Kate living when she finds the book under the floor board? If it not the Lake House how did it get there?
