Did you watch any of the program Sarah’s Summer House on HGTV?? Sarah Richardson transformed her husband’s “bachelor shack” into what I would call the perfect cottage. Try and catch the re-runs if you missed it. The transformation is amazing.
Country Living Magazine also did a layout of this gorgeous property in this month”s issue. My copy of the magazine is already getting dog eared from me pouring over the pages.
How gorgeous is this family room? So many windows overlooking that beautiful lake.
It’s even more amazing when you see that this cottage is situated on it’s own mini island somewhere in Canada! It is totally off the grid. Their energy needs come from wind, solar, and propane. And everything including building supplies and the workers all had to get there by boat. Unbelievable.
Notice the wide stripes painted floor in the master bedroom. And it’s a smart idea to have that quilt hanging from that towel bar in one of the guest rooms. It’s all so cheerful and cottage-y. :)
After the kitchen, I would have to say this is my favorite room. It’s one of the guest rooms and actually it is separate structure that also has incredible views of the lake. Wouldn’t you love to wake up here in the morning?! This would make the perfect getaway. I just love it!
