THE LAKE COTTAGE


This charming New Hampshire lake cottage was a recent commission as a birthday gift for a client's father. This beautiful home is one of the oldest on the lake - my client's great-grandfather bought it around 1900. He sold the property next door for $1.00 after he lost it in a card game! If you'd like for me to capture a special family home for you, don't hesitate to contact me here.

Lost it in a card game? How sad.
The house has wonderful windows. It must be great in person.

Wonderful job!! We are up in the air between remodeling our home (extensively) or selling (house is on the market right now) to buy our dream home...but once we decide and complete it...I will totally contact you to capture our special home!
