The Cottage- Exterior

I have been blessed in my life to have 2 of my lifelong dreams come true.  The first was to own a bed and breakfast, which we had and loved for 8 years until I got burned out!!  The second was to have our own cottage in Northern Michigan.  The cottage we purchased 3 years ago and we have been adding our own touches.

The cottage is all new inside and was renovated by the builder we bought it from.  It does sit on a 1940's foundation and still has many original interior features.  It is just 3 blocks from an inland lake and 1 mile from Lake Michigan!!

It is about 1400 sq. feet with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a large kitchen, and a sunporch.  It sits on about an acre of land.  Just the perfect size for a cottage for 2, and of coarse 2 yorkie girls!!

This little place had been so much fun and we escape there whenever possible!! Stay tuned for more photos of inside as we work on each room!!
