    Lake Cottage, Stafford, CT

    This 1,100 sq. ft. lake cottage features beamed ceilings, wall-to-wall windows, and a spacious second floor loft with cathedral ceiling and tongue & groove pine decking. With only a 24' x 24' footprint, this lake cottage is small in size and big in design. It is designed to be open, airy, and conducive of the lakeside lifestyle.

    High end finishes, including wide detailed trim & crown molding, beadboard and drywall compliment the rustic beamed ceiling in a classy way. A beam spanning the distance from the stairwell to the kitchen supports the timber frame ceiling.

    Gable dormers on the front and rear of the cottage provide more usable space in the second floor loft. Each gable dormer has a large half round window, offering extra light plus a great view of the lake. The loft easily accommodates staying guests with its cathedral ceiling, dormers, and space for several beds.

    A lake cottage should be warm and inviting, and that’s exactly what this is. From the beamed ceilings to the wood floors throughout, to the tongue & groove pine decking on the cathedral ceiling in the spacious loft, this is truly a home away from home. It has everything the owners need and nothing they don’t. In other words, it is the perfect summer getaway.
