If I had a cottage...it would look like this one! After you see these pictures, you are going to want one too! Sorry! I start to get this very strong feeling inside that I must go to a place like this. It is almost like someone turns on a switch as the weather start to improve here. There is a strong need to pack up and head to Maine! We stayed at this beautiful cottage on a lake a few summers back. The reason why we haven't returned is, I feel we need to vacation in other places so we get to experience more. My husband and I want to own a small place to get away too. This was our ideal place. Because of that, and because we want to own a cottage, I took tons of pictures so as to remember what to do when we (if ever) get the chance to build one. For anyone who is frustratingly stuck somewhere with still cold weather...enjoy this little slice of heaven via me!
Can you just gobble this place up? Cottage quaint is emanating from this kitchen. We really enjoyed eating and cooking here. I literally had a big smile on my face every time I was in here. A girl can dream can't she? I could sooo picture myself living here...
It is all in the details! Every corner was pleasing to look at. You just feel good looking at all of these little aspects. I am getting all worked up again!
Many days spent reading and napping here. Can you stand it? Just crazy lovely.
Extremely comfy living room overlooking wrap around porch and lake...right at your footsteps. You could hear the loons everyday. So soothing....ahhh!
Superb fireplace was built from stones and rocks from the surrounding lake! Great idea! Never would have thought of it myself. However, you learn something everyday and I will store that away for future building of my "dream" cottage! Please! Please!
Cute Lanai (I think that is what it is called) off of dinning room and living room. Perfect summery spot to sit at night when good ol' bugs come out.
My mom fell in love with these arched windows. They cranked all the way open so you felt like the inside was outside. Get it?
Back side of house. Great dock to dive off of and swim out to floating dock. On my list!
Lots of kayaking in this amazing scenic lake.
Has anyone every heard of Christmas Cove? Not Christmasy at all...look at this! Gorgeous. I have to have a home here one day.
Camden, Maine. Little short trip to visit this quaint place. This is top of Mount Beatie. Look at these views. Maine really is an amazing place.
I have more photo's but have to wrap up this rather large post. My dog Maggie really enjoyed her vacation! So, now you can see what I love about cottages and why I am getting that itch to go back.
