A Charming Cottage

This is the second of a three part tour of a New Hampshire home we had the privilege to be guests. For the first part, The main house, click HERE.

Walking outside of the main home, a covered wooden corridor (picture below), connects the house to the garage, the building on the right.

That building not only hosts the garage but also the guest house upstairs, the balcony is one of its great features.

But, let's go inside. Back here, from the middle of the corridor, you go up the stairs.

 One more turn and you'll find the entrance to the "little cottage".

Once in, the main area is what you'll see to your right.  A warm welcoming area.

If you look the other way, you'll get a peak at one of the rooms, but you just have to stay there a little longer to admire the beautiful cupboard right in front of you.  Notice the hand painted detail at the top.

The inside has a beautiful design too. A set of china for the guest's use is so finely displayed.

I could happily live in here year round :)

This main area has a kitchenette and eating area any guest would appreciate.

Silverware, glasses, and a small refrigerator at your convenience. I love the cabinetry, feet and all.

Here, once again, art is so gracefully displayed.

A small corridor takes you to the main bedroom.  Notice the woodwork, marvelous!

A very inviting room.  From the ceiling fan with acorns and wooden pieces to the cowbell on top of the weathered bench, this room says country living.

It also has a wonderful view! A view that just by opening the doors and stepping on the balcony, you'll feel that you are part of it, right there in the middle of the mountain.

As in the main house, those "little details" abound here in the cottage as well.  How cute is this lamp,

Or the chair, ready for the cowboy to sit down and get in those boots.

I guess the drapes and those adorable deer brackets are my favorite.

The room my kids shared is equally comfortable and inviting.

Two single beds with hand painted details.  On the wall, "old windows art" display family photographs.

A nice little desk and bench come in handy when you're getting ready.

The Toile accents and drapes define even more the room's old appeal.

The bathroom is so exquisitely done!  It has convenient access doors to each of the two bedrooms.  I love the shelves with all their storage and display potential.

Even the shower had its little share of cuteness :)

The floors... The beadboard... The vanity... The lighting...

It is all so very charming!

It was a really nice place to stay.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back to the final part of the tour, the outdoor areas.
