Harbor Springs, MI
Although new, this cottage was traditionally conceived as two structures that had been united: an original cottage and an out-building connected by a porch. On the main level, the cottage contains the kitchen, breakfast area, and entry/dining area. The second level has two bedrooms, each with access to a porch, individual baths, and a casual family room. The out-building contains the master bedroom with access to the main deck and a master bath that includes a tub with a direct view to Lake Michigan. The connecting living room joins the cottage section and master suite. The soaring living room fireplace is flanked by full length exterior window walls. On the lake side, the doors fully open to allow the caressing breezes to enter. All interior finishes, furnishings, fabrics, and textures echo a quiet “Zen” which makes this a restful haven to be enjoyed during all seasons.
