Year Purchased: 2012

About: The Russell family, of Iowa, purchased this property in the Fall of 2012. Brad and Amy Russell are native Wisconsinites, who have adopted 12 children; and thus want Arbor Cottage to remain 'child-friendly' and enjoyed by large families... (Your pets are welcome, too :). They will continue to rent the cottage, extending it to year round rental. They have made several renovations to the home. The name was changed from Bayview Cottage to 'Arbor Cottage' to reflect the garden landscape. We welcome you to 'Arbor Cottage'!!!

Why Ephraim, WI, USA:
This property has a most interesting history. The original four rooms made up the first Post Office (circa 1850's) in Ephraim when Water Street was still a dirt road. The original Postmaster lived and worked from this location. When he married, the upstairs loft area was added to accommodate his growing family. Over the years, a one room cabin was attached to the building; as well as, new additions of downstairs bedrooms, bathrooms, and family room/porch.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The property is located in the center of the Village of Ephraim and has 100' of waterfront. It faces west for incredible sunset views over Eagle Harbor. It doesn't get any better than this!
