About Bouzha Cookman

Our son is the 5th generation of our family to spend summers on North Haven Island on the same property my great grandparents bought in 1917.

Bouzha Cookman purchased this Cottage in 1917

Why Bouzha Cookman chose North Haven

The Forge used to a be wing on the main house. My grandmother moved it in the 1960's to its present location. Far enough away for privacy and quiet, but close enough to join her family for dinner, she renovated the Forge to be her own private cottage on her 40 acre farm.

What makes this Cottage unique

If you like to be surrounded by beauty, to see the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening, and like a bit of remoteness, you will love The Forge. For adults it is a lovely retreat, for children, it is a safe place to run through fields and revel in the outdoors.

                                                              We had such a wonderful time. Our grandchildren were able to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from this quiet and quaint cottage. A perfect place for us grandparents to rest and relax and for the parents to retreat after a full day of fun around the island. This was an unforgettable vacation and I hope we will be able to do it again very soon. There is no place better to visit than North Haven.

                                                              An amazing, quiet and pristinely beautiful area. A place to make memories and revisit every year. My kids loved it and remember it fondly. It's a safe place for kids to just be kids, explore and grow.
