Now that IS a cottage and it looks like a great place for a week away without having to worry about chipping the Italian Marble custom vanity or putting a dent in the double door Sub-Zero freezer in the pantry.
Your finally getting the feel for this cottage thing
Thinking about renting it !
A tent that has a bathroom? Now that’s the kind of camping I could deal with.
Agree with Paul. A real cottage with the feel of a cottage and not a Mcmansion on the lake.
Yeah to everyone… TL finally got it right… now if I could only find 6 people who cant get enough of the Four Seasons to come join me in the masterful true definition of a cottage…
its nice but all that white – i’d be a nervous wreck by end of the week.
Awesome whitewater canoeing on this river. Sign me up.
i would just like to thank TL for showcasing a real (& nice looking) cottage.
Finally . . . a realistic touch of the north!
