Years ago I read a H.P. Lovecraft story where a guy is trapped in this house I believe by some large body of water I want to say and there were the frog like creatures. I don't remember which story it was and I'm dying to read it again , please help. I know I didn't provide much to go off of but it was so long ago. I've tried searching online and flipping through a couple of his books I own but can't come up with anything.

That may be The Rats in the Walls. It's set on the narrator's ancestral estate in England, and creatures are discovered living in the lake (if memory serves).

it's not "Dagon" is it?...I remember a scene similar to that in Stuart Gordon's great screen version of the story.
