Cottage House Hotel

Cottage House Hotel This rambling, two-story brick building began in 1867 as a 3-room cottage and blacksmith shop. Today, the handsome gazebo-style porches are favorite gathering places for guests and the historic hotel is a restored showcase of unique Victorian charm. From "Aunt Minnie's Room" to the "Bridal Chamber" with its stained glass and brass and iron bed, every room in the main hotel has a personality all its own.
