Crane Island Retreat
A summer cottage that perfectly encapsulates the lake tradition, this new house has the look and feel of a 1910 cottage, fitting in unobtrusively with its neighbors on Crane Island. We employed the scale, proportion, details, and materials of buildings of that early era as precedent in our design. An expansive screened porch adds to the leisure feeling of “cottage.”
Modern conveniences blend seamlessly with the design of the building. For example, the television in the living room hides behind a panel, operated by an historic window sash pulley and weight system.
