This cottage used to be someone's farm house. It faces a salt water lake, and beyond is the sea. An architect now owns it, and did some alterations to this house, but I like it that they maintained most of it's original charm.
It was spooky the first couple of nights, no lights outside, and no cars. The house also creeks as it settles in for the night. But when we got used to the noises of the house, it was the most peaceful place we have ever been.
It is a place to unplug, there is no cellphone reception, television, or internet here. We were completely disconnected from the world.
