Old Log Cottage

This little old cottage is on a nearby lake. As mentioned by another flickr poster the little old cottages are slowly disappearing, so I thought I would post some pics I have been taking of the old timers.

    There's a lake near my home that has some of the cutest tumbledown cottages, but you're right--they are going away. Sad. I always wanted to live in one of them!

    The one in this picture sat empty my whole life until going up for sale recently. It was always my dream to be able to live in it---part of it is a log cabin. A family with little kids bought it.....the kids looked like they were having a blast in the water when I drove by and people were working on it. The end of my dream, and the beginning of someone elses I guess :)

    In regard to your last statement, yes but look at it this way. It's still there! Most of the pretty ones around here (Florida) have been 'renovated' out of eistence to make way for condos or something. Thank you for sharing this, it is a beautiful old cottage...I'd have wanted to live in it too. :)

    It's so lovely! I'd say it must be in good hands, though. The family working on it, I mean, and not just buying it for the land.

    Is this in Michigan? Where can one find cottages like this in Northern Michigan now? I don't want someone's bad renovations. Something genuine, with some land and privacy around it. Can't just drive around as I live in Asia right now. Love to retire to it.

    This one is in southwestern MI. Unfortunately, it now looks nothing like this. Someone bought it...removed all those casement windows and put replacement windows in. The worst part is...they covered over the original logs with new logs....milled like those new log cabins. You wouldn't recognize it now. That's why I'm trying to take as many photos of the old ones as I can...they are disappearing fast.
