About the owner: My husband and I built this home ourselves as a summer cottage with our children who at the time were very young and they loved to help. Our cottage has a lot of beautiful memories for us. I wanted to be close to my family so my parents would have the opportunity to see my children grow and for them to know what it's like to grow up in a small community. This land that the cottage sits on has been passed down from generation to generation and has been in my family since the late 1800's. We used this land when I was growing up for hay for our horses.
